Just thinking

A friend of mine often starts a sentence saying 'Now here's a thought.'

He then goes on to tell you something and ask your opinion on the matter. It could be anything from what he's going to eat, climbing up Everest, emigrating to Australia, clearing out the garage. what he'd do if he won the lottery.

Well I was thinking about him today because he loves talking, having a good old chin wag, a natter, spinning a yarn, all phrases that he uses.
You know on Facebook how you often get those wise words and phrases to make you think?
Well the Dalai Llama says if you're talking then you're not listening so you're not learning anything. So I thought if we're all listening and no-one's talking then no-one's learning anything anyway.
 I've probably missed the point completely, but it reminded me of something that my mum thought was so funny and here it is for you, hope you enjoy it

Once upon a time, there were four people; their names were Everybody, Somebody, Nobody and Anybody.

Whenever there was an important job to be done, Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.
When Nobody did it, Everybody got angry because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought that Somebody would do it, but Nobody realised that Nobody would do it-

So consequently Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done in the first place.

Bluebell woods are a great place to think

A view like this might find you lost in thought
