Tuesday’s Thoughts!

Happy Tuesday! My daughter is happy. She is the new owner of a Toyota Camry now. I had to laugh for she made a remark about how she signed so many papers. I told her to just wait until she buys her first house, that is when you feel like you are signing your life away! But her remark made me think of something else once again. Why are schools not teaching cursive anymore? I think my kids were in the last elementary class that taught it. I realize technology keeps changing and maybe handwritten signatures will be a think of the past. Everything will be electronic. What do I know, though I still think its rather sad.ย 

But anyway, hope you are having a good start to the week and that the following quotes bring you a smile break to your day. Enjoy!ย

  1. I like number 3.

    When my first daughter got her drivers license, I bought an old Camry. My youngest one still drives it today though it isn’t in nearly as good a shape. I figured the next stop for this car would be the junkyard when I bought it. I did give me the ‘pleasure’ of working on cars in the driveway again.

  2. Congrats to your daughterโ€”one of the most exciting days is buying your first car. I’m not sure about other schools, but I was still teaching cursive during my last year of teaching (3rd grade.) My favorites this week were #5 and #7.

    • So what are you going to claim that kept you alive until you were 100? ๐Ÿ™‚
      Yay on teaching your 3rd graders. It might be different out West. I just know that here public schools have taken it out of their curriculum years ago.

      • Hmm, not sure. One of my favorite stories to tell about age had to do with my mother-in-law’s boyfriend. (She and my wife’s dad divorced later in life.) He was buying some cold medicine product that had alcohol in it, and the cashier asked him for his ID. (I’m estimating he was 80 at the time.) He asked her, “What? Am I too old?”๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  3. #10 speaks the loudest for me. On #9 – God’s love.

    I, too, mourn the loss of teaching cursive writing in the schools, though some seem to be resuming teaching it. My question is, if they don’t know cursive, how will they read genealogy records or doctors write prescriptions?

  4. Congrats to your daughter! I’m with you on the cursive. My grandkids can never read my handwriting on cards (if I don’t say so myself, it’s very readable and lovely). Come to think of it, they think cards are passรฉ too. Sigh. Love the one about breaking up with winter. I chuckled out loud.

      Ooh I sm sure as they get older fhey will appreciste cards from their grandmother and maybe they will learn how to decode her secret, lovely writing. ๐Ÿ˜‰
