Positive attitude inevitable outcome

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.   Herm Albright  (1876 - 1944)

I am going to annoy as many people as possible, how about you?

Patsy the cow

My beautiful cow Patsy, who is no longer with us. She was always happy and optimistic!

This is very nice.  I love little short sayings and try to repeat them to myself on a constant basis.  I'm gonna' save this one (lol).

Hi Andrea

Great quote, and your cow Pasty looks like an optimist to me.

Good luck and success

Andrea, Life is a choice we can choose whether our cup is half full or half empty.  I prefer that half full cup!

Andrea, I love to annoy people with a postitive attitude! It has been a challenge to resist the negative that has tried to spread in this market, but I get happy when I wake up every morning, it means I am still alive. The alternative is no fun!!

Andrea, oh my god!  You didn't eat Patsy, did you?

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 11 years ago

Andrea, she is a beauty!  That's right, no one wants to talk to a whiner, they just depress you even more, it is already hard enough to be positive at all times.  As long as we try, we will be ok.

Oh Pat, hold on there... NO I didn't eat her.. Tis a sad tale of woe to be sure, her last calf did her in, we had to put her down. HOWEVER, despite the fact she had a bull, I kept him, he is my pet. He is NOT slated for anything other than a life of total leisure. His name is Patrick. My little farmer friend took my dearest Patsy up on top of a hill and buried her. On the way up he found a bicycle, he picked it up, and buried her with the bicycle. He told me, with a straight face, that he put the bike there in case she got bored. I have concocted this whole story about how during a full moon, sometimes you can see a cow riding a bike....

Rita, you are so right! Listening to people whining makes me CRAZY! Although it is a short trip...

Hi Andrea—I love Patsy's story... you know I think I see her riding the bike with the little boy from Dreamworks. Puts a whole new spin on "the cow jumped over the moon."  Yes, it's best to be happily annoying than to be annoyed. I'm soooooooo glad you didn't eat Patsy!

Linda, LOL, thank you. I also have that image of my Patsy, riding up and down the road. And she is always in my heart.
