The rat race…

mice

It’s happening! We are going to have our very own condo.  A deluxe one.  It will have a spinning wheel and soft bedding and fresh water all the time. There will be self-serve buffet style meals with treats hand delivered.  There are added amenities like maid services and garbage pick up and sometimes a change of scenery when we are moved to warm sunny spots or cool shade depending on the weather.

Don’t be afraid I didn’t hear anything about a snake or lizard in the house.  Yeah, there’s a cat, but we won’t be put in a cage with it and it can’t get into our condo. So all’s well. We can sleep all day and run around all night without having to deal with the hassle of crowds and rowdies who have no manners. No more worrying about some gutter rat getting in your face.  Think how much fun we will have.  And we can have a family and raise them right  No garbage gangs or dumpster delinquents trying to  lead them astray.

It’s going to be grand just you and me in our own perfect nest
and out of this rat race for good!

Today I am linking to In Other Words.
The prompt is:

“The trouble with being in the rat race is that
even if you win, you are still a rat.”
Lily Tomlin

Heroes are people…

Heroes are people who understand freedom is not without cost.
They understand there are obligations and duties involved.
They understand that if the freedom of one person is lost
freedom for all is lost.

Heroes are people who take responsibility not just to understand
the concept of freedom, but to see that it is a reality of life.

Heroes are people who know freedom has a price
and they pay the price be it minimal or sacrificial.

Heroes are people who know that without love and respect
for everyone there is freedom for no one.

the prompt this week is:

“A hero is someone who understands the responsibility
that comes with his freedom”.
Bob Dylan
