May I quote you?


Hello

Today we are going to Muse about Croquet and quotes.  If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

 The world of Croquet

Croquet is growing in popularity.  This year the State of Florida endorsed Croquet as an “official” sport.  This means it will be represented in the offical state games competition held annually.  Furthermore,  Croquet is back in the public eye, at least a little.  The following clip was shown recently on CBS Sunday Morning.  John Osborn lives down here in Florida.  I know him and have taken a lesson from him.  You might find this interesting and entertaining. here is the link to click on:  http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50155572n

May I Quote You?

On a different subject, I recently came across  a series of quotes.  Art Linkletter used to have a program called “Kids Say the Darndest Things“.  Well, adults do as well.  Read these:

Heather Whitestone(On September 17, 1994, Alabama’s Heather Whitestone was selected as Miss America 1995.)
Question: If you could live forever, would you and why?
Answer: “I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever,”

–Miss Alabama in the 1994 Miss USA contest.
