Loving his work, wisdom and miércoles

- I adore watching this guy who stands in a shopping cart directing people to a tax preparation business while enthusiastically dancing all the while. Sometimes I detour in the afternoon to see if he is there and we wave.

- From my niece on facebook, referring to her dad: "Don't give 'em the satisfaction of living in your head rent free" --Daddy's wisdom for the day :)

- Looking forward to "suburban book club" discussion on Sunday of "The Speed of Light" by Elizabeth Rosner, a novel that has sort of entered my dreams. An adult brother and sister struggle to find their voices, but both their lives begin to change on a Wednesday, miércoles, the day that sounds like miracles.

It's a little miracle that the weekend is here - it's been a long week, but it's all good. :) Have a great weekend, my friends!

That guy is so cool! Only in America right? :D

Yes this has been a long week, and a mixture of both pain and joy.

Have a great weekend!

In French it's Mercredi.

I read a book once, long long ago. Now I read blogs and my life is complete.


Granny Annie said...

We have persons who advertise for the same company around here and once in a while they will hire a fellow like your guy who is quite an entertainer. Lots go out of their way to watch him but I don't know how many actually go to the tax preparer.

It is a down right shame the number of people who live in my head rent free. That is indeed a statement of wisdom.

Wish we had a book club group around here.

So glad I read your post because I actually thought today was Thursday:)

We have a dancing pizza sign guy who's a local celebrity. :)

Hope your weekend holds a miracle or two, Lynn!

Louvregirl said...

Great weekend to you too, Lynn. Enjoy the warmer temperatures...!

Lynn said...

Joe -

He is a great dancer, too. :) It's been a looong week. Hope you are OK and that your weekend is good, Joe.

Jannie -

I know - blog reading takes up a bit of time, eh???


Granny Annie -

It's a good hook to get people in the door, I think. I'm always seeing people in those costumes around, but he is the only one with such energy.

Isn't that a wise statement? My brother-in-law is a smart man.

Some county libraries sponsor book clubs or you can start your own. I'm in two now - my urban book club and my suburban book club. :) I get the feeling you live in the country though.

Happy Friday!

Talon -

A dancing pizza slice? I like it. Hope miracles are in store for you, too. :)

It is raining here all weekend - maybe some of that pollen will wash away...

Enjoy your book club, Lynn!

G. B. Miller said...

Love that quote. Considering what had happened to me today, that quote will be acted on for the entire weekend.

Riot Kitty said...

Agree w/G. I need to write that down and put it on my computer at work.

Maude Lynn said...

Believe it or not, our tax prep place has a guy dressed like that and dancing on the corner, too!

Wendy said...

Hi Lynn,

Yes, it's been a long week for me too - and I've missed you in the past couple of months.

I see those tax guys too but ours don't stand in shopping carts. too funny!

I love that quote about not giving them the satisfaction of living in your head. I will have to remember that!

My very tall, dark niece had that job for Liberty Tax Prep in Florida last year- What a fun job! She loves acting. Pulls in alot of business I guess.
Strange quote- means don't dwell on nasty folks I guess-
Sounds like an interesting book with synchronicity playing a part.
My dreams have been strange lately. Went to find my Mom's old house but the street no longer existed- wonder where that came from? Maybe it was the orange juice...
Have a good week-end!

Enjoy your weekend. I don't think I would like that job of being a walking Statue!

desk49 said...

more guts then I to do that.

Lynn said...

FB -

I may be going just for the cake - I haven't finished the book, but I do love it.

G -

I hope you are OK!

RK -

I saw my sister for about an hour as she was passing thru town yesterday and told her that I had shared her husband's wisdom. :)

MZ -

I believe it - I think they are a chain. I very often see people dressed like him or Uncle Sam walking from the bus stop. But he is a great dancer - what great exercise, too. :)

Wendy -

Does this mean you are starting up your blog again? I'll check it out - it's good to see you.

Snaggle -

Dreams are so interesting to me - I dreamed about someone who used to report to me a long time ago and wonder if he is OK. A guy with just a sparkling personality and who was a joy to work with.

Sage -

No - not your calling, I wouldn't think. :)

Ellis -

Probably not for me either. :)

Adrenalynn said...

How charming! Imagine being that guy, I wonder if he enjoys it as much as you do!

That there is pure wisdom. I'll try to take that to heart this week!

Enjoy your book club :) And enjoy life's miracles!

Lynn said...

Lynn -

Life's miracles - that's what it's all about.

Have a great week!
