Maxim of the Week

Melva loved letting her pet birds out of their cage but dreaded getting them to go back in.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

(On a personal note, "times" for me are getting a bit better  as my eye problem is gradually, slowly clearing, a bit.  Thank you so much for your kind expressions of concern.  )


  1. Talk of making a problem for herself! Maybe she should just set them free.

    Happy Easter!

  2. Happy Easter - glad to hear things are looking up for you.

    Weirdly, yesterday I was thinking of that very maxpression and trying to tie it into my blog post.

    Your maxims are wonderful Sunday 'news'. Love them.

  3. A bird in the hand can be quite messy at times.

  4. May your tale of two cities, and any and all trials and tribulations along the way have happy endings... if there is such a thing. Meanwhile, birds let out of cages should never be put back in, imho...

    Glad to hear your eye is on the mend, I've been sending eye-healing thoughts your way...

  5. Ruby,
    Oh, but making a problem for oneself is part and parcel of having passions and obsessions!
    I wish you a very Happy Easter as well.

  6. Susan,
    I'm glad you're still enjoying my little Sunday sermons.
    To add to the weird coincidence of this maxim popping up like the Easter bunny, I came across it today in a book I'm reading.
    I hope your Easter has been happy.

  7. Shirl,
    Ha ha! LOL.
    A bird overhead is not without consequence as well!

  8. Owen,
    Ha, yes, my ongoing tale of two cities. Well, one city and one village. Me, myself, and eye thank you for your happy visions for my recovery...of sight, and sound living.

  9. oh well, decisions, decisions... i would also tend to let them out forever...
    glad to hear about your eye - wishing you an ongoing recovery!

  10. I hope it will be for you "de mieux en mieux" !!!

  11. johanna,
    Imagine the panic every time someone opened a door or window if the pet birds were allowed to fly free all the time in the house. And the "decorations" they'd leave all over the place! Hmmm...perhaps best to not "tame" birds to keep as pets at all. After all, they were designed to fly, not live in cages. But then, aren't we all, in some way?

  12. Otli,
    Merci bien. Moi aussi, je l'espère! Best of the best of times!

  13. I like that nice drawing, the lady of the birds.
