Thoughts - September 11, 2016

“Good humor may be said to be one of the very best articles of dress one can wear in society.”
― William Makepeace Thackeray, Sketches and Travels, Etc.
I've never been all that concerned about articles of dress. For the 'important occasions', I head to the consignment shops and hope for the best. My parents were the same way (for decades, dad would buy two new suit coats and four new pairs of pants annually....same style, same color - many thanks to Perce Ross and his store on Main Street. Mom would get her annual Pendleton suit there, too). Yet smiles, joy, and good humor were essential, almost mandatory. It took years of living before I realized that grumpiness and bad humor were okay, simply a part of life. But I still look for a person's smile before I notice what they're wearing. - Beth Almond Ford
