    Great TT. Thanks for sharing, it was very entertaining.
    I’m up too.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Ma, I’ll be over later :-)


    I adore the thought that my wrinkles are a historical artifact to my face! tee-hee And John Lennon absolutely had it right…all you need is love. Great Thirteen - love it! Mine is up.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, isn’t it a nice way of seeing it? *lol*

    Kailani UNITED STATES said:

    Great list! I could do with less “history”, though!

    Lifecruiser: Hm, are you sure? I love the history :-)

    Norma UNITED STATES said:

    colleen UNITED STATES said:

    And in the end the love you take is equal to the love ou make! Great list. I love the quotes! So many good ones. You always leave me with a smile.

    I’m on page 13 too.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, so true Colleen! And you do too, I always love your posts and leave them with a smile :-)


    Great list! I love this one! ““The jump to heaven can be done from any corner of the world”. Seneca, Lucius Annaeus” So very true!

    Mine is up! Have a great day!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it really is. I’ll pop over to you :-)


    :razz: You always do such great lists.
    Isn’t John Lennon dead. Maybe love wasn’t all he needed. I bet if he wrote that now he would sing ” Love and a bullet proof vest are all you need”

    Lifecruiser: Thanks… It’s not easy for my little pea brain ;-) Yes, I see what you mean…. What a memorable song that would have been, so simple to go around and sing, don’t you think? Maybe you should record a new version of it and sell billions of…?

    Chi UNITED STATES said:

    Did you miss me yesterday? LOL

    I think you are a very lucky lady & I laughed at Dottie Archibald’s quote & really agree with the one by Thoreau. *s*

    Lifecruiser: Yes of course I missed you :-) I am a lucky… monster *lol*

    Lindsey UNITED STATES said:

    What fun quotations! Thank you so much for sharing - happy TT!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, they are some of my favorites :-)


    A great list and a great set of quotes.

    Thanks for stopping by My T13 Daydream Edition!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Dane Bramage, maybe not as imagination used as in yours :-)


    I love the quote about the virgin and parachutist! Excellent! I do wish more people did live their live as being original. Great idea for a TT list–have enjoyed this one immensely!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks the shrone, I’m glad you did :-) I’ll pop over to you at once!


    Such wisdom, such truth. I love it! It was great the way you found a corresponding quote. Very inspirational.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks, I thought so too when I picked them out from all my favorite ones. I love qutoes :-)


    A great list! Great quotes!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks My 2 cents :-)

    Froggie CANADA said:

    Wow! Love this weeks Thursday Thirteen. I especially love the quote from John Lennon… so true.

    Thanks for blog-walking over at my place. Been having a computer crisis here (hard drive on verge of failing… doing massive backups!!!). My TT will be up little later today.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it really is :-) O oh, I know that feeling, I’ve been having the blue screen now and then lately - again. *heavy sigh* How often shall it be needed to do a new install…

    Chana CANADA said:

    for one that is about to be 37 i’m feeling a bit behind..i have much to work on. my self confidence is way behind, light baggage? far from it, ask Joe’s back (poor guy), and my experiences helping me cope? not yet, i’m terrified of the same pain so i freak even more. i’m satisfied with who i am and truly believe that love rules and Joe is my favorite excercise program :lol:

    than again, i have been blind and deaf as needed all my life-love it. i know how to enjoy time off like i was getting paid for it. i know what i want, it’s how to achieve it that gets fuzzy.

    Lifecruiser: Only 37? Oh you’re almost a teenager ;-) I agree with that, how to achieve - that is a bit fuzzier…

    zingtrial UNITED KINGDOM said:

    I liked it nice quotes.
    Thanks for sharing :) .
    Wish you well

    Lifecruiser: Thanks, zingtrial, I wish you well too :-)


    You are too cute! Love your list this week.

    Lifecruiser: You to PixiePincessmom :-) Thanks!


    As always a thoughtful and considered list :)

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Franscesca, you’re too kind :-)


    Great list-love the quotes!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Jenny :-)

    Kasia POLAND said:

    These things work for me too. So no age boundaries, please :-)))

    Lifecruiser: Aha, but maybe you are an unusually mature youngster that have a mind of an middle-aged? Hm… somehow that doesn’t sound fun either… *lol*

    Danielle UNITED STATES said:

    What a great list! I especially like the way you used the quotes!!!

    I needed the encouragement as I just turned another year older–I’m just not quite feeling the same way about the wrinkles I’m starting to see :grin:

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Danielle, I’m glad you liked it! Well, the wrinkles may need some time to get used to you to ;-)
