If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.

Amen, Fern!! Thank God for the ability to grin and bear it. I feel sorry for those who don't have the capacity to do so, especially here in senior-citizenville. As for the other maxim, we fortunately climbed out of that hole some years ago. But we did have to stop digging first.<G>
