Gosh I am sorry you made the trip here for I have zilch. Hopefully, to keep the trip from being a total waste of mouse power, I would like to direct you to A Robert Brault Reader. Now he has almost a thousand followers so you might all ready be aware of him. He is new to me but is now a can't miss blog, usually a quick read.

This man is an original thinker that I occasionally borrow quotes from but recently he wrote such a wonderful post on his trip to France. At the end of his post, I realized suddenly I wanted to go to Paris and that has never been anywhere near my bucket list.

His original quotes however are the big draw for me.

"An old body is like an old building. Eventually its only reason for being is the employment of the maintenance staff."

“The only certain mercy in life is that someday the undertaker will do your hair in such a way that you will be glad you are dead”

“On the whole, I would not wish to live a dog's life, except for the times when you show up to help and you are told to go lie down.”

“If animals could talk, the world would lose its best listeners.”

“The definition of insanity, said Einstein, is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. And here I thought that was the definition of sex.”

“Today is shaping up as a good day with my pets. My dog came running to greet me and I have a 2:30 appointment with my cat.”

Just a sample of how the man's mind works.

Check him out if you want to have a chuckle or your mind exercised while I go try to think of a future post.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.


  1. That sounds great Patti! I am going to have a look! Thanks for the hint! Have a great weekend!

  2. I'll have to put him on my Google Reader to visit now and then. Love the quotes, will probably use one every so often and of course, use his name as the author. Have a great week-end.

  3. Sounds like a good read of some much needed short humor.

    I have one in the making, but I am still in traveling mode. My husband as yet to realize how tired just trying to schedule and get common things done before each trip.

    Today I should be washing clothes for Monday's trip to Little Rock, but have one to 2 medical appts and then he wants to go to Harrison to eat with a friend who will be leaving for his winter destination soon.

    I guess I can sleep in the back seat.

    I guess at least I can

  4. If your time ain't come not even a doctor can kill you.
    American proverb

    Always looking for interesting blogs, thanks, I too shall go see.

  5. Patti,
    What a really gracious thing to do! I love your selection of quotes, and your appreciation of my Paris piece almost makes me cry. Maybe there's a reason to keep blogging, after all.


  6. I love every single one of those quotes - can't wait to visit him! blessings, marlene

  7. The trip was worth it, Patti. Robert Brault's thoughts are fascinating! Thanks for the link.

    Wishing you a great weekend.

  8. I always enjoy my visits with you regardless if you think you have nothing or was it zilch.
    Why do you think my post are so silly I have zilch 99 percent of the time.
    Thanks for all your romantic advice and I always enjoy your comments. Your the best my friend.
    I will take a look at this new found friend of yours. I am sure I will be glad I did.

  9. Patti: if you say I should try something well then by golly, I shall. Even your zilch is interesting my dear. Have a good weekend, The Olde Bagg

  10. What Linda said - yes - even your zilch is good!!

    I'll check him out now.

  11. A visit to your blog is never wasted time ....had a quick look at that blog you linked to calls for a coffee and a pack of biscuits ...looks like a great read to be had so I've become a follower on his blog ... thanks xx .

  12. You have us all checking out this blog...loved the quotes.

  13. Hi Patti, Isn't it great to find bloggers that we enjoy??? I have some that I would never want to miss...

    The quotes are great... Sounds like that guy is quite creative.

    Happy Halloween.

  14. Reader Wil,
    Think you will enjoy the visit Wil.

    I know his work is the type you like to use. Always nice to have a good source. Enjoy.

    Hope you find a chuckle there. You have been through the wringer lately. Sorry you are having to go back to LR again. Keep us informed.

    Love that one too Helen. So true and sounds a bit like Robert.

    Wow, I hope you aren't even thinking about not blogging. That might make this old lady cranky.
    Thanks for the enjoyable reads you provide.

    I thought you might. Enjoy him--I do.

    Pat Arkansas,
    Thanks Pat. Glad you liked them also. I just love truths condensed into a few words.

    Ah, but you never have zilch for you have such a creative co-writer in Miss Pearl.

    Linda in NM
    Thanks Linda but I had help from Roberts blog, thank goodness.

    I know how you love quotes Judy. You should enjoy his.

    So glad you liked him and followed. Coffee and biscuits seems like a good idea.

    I am sure he will enjoy his new crop of visitors. I am so pleased that so many are visiting him.

    He has a very fertile mind which is always interesting. I appreciate different thinkers.

  15. Wonderful quotes; I think I'll check him out. Have a great weekend!

  16. I'm not sorry I visited! I got a good laugh out of some of those quotes. For some reason the one about the undertaker and the bad hair do really made me smile (perhaps because of my lack of hair... I suppose the undertaker will just have to give me a wax and polish!).
    Paris is a city that we would love to visit one day. It is amazing just how beautiful it looks. If you have sufficient internet speed, you can look at it on Google Earth and use street view to drop down to street level and have a look .. it's fantastic (OK, I know that is "sad" and I should get out more, but .... hey, it's more fun than watching the news on TV!).
    Thinking of you, P xx

  17. I love those quotes and will definitely check out his blog. Have a nice weekend - Go Cody!

  18. We all make a mass exodus to this man's blog. He probably won't notice with that many followers. Off I go to follow the crowd. Hey, wait for me!!!!
    Adios, Patti.... until later

  19. Thanks for the tip, I'll go and have a look see.
    Praying like crazy for Cody to be a winner.
    Happy All Hallows...

  20. lakeviewer,
    Think you will enjoy. Thanks for checking him out.

    You know I do the same thing with Google Earth. Love it. I have actually toured NZ that way. Did you see me go by?
    My favorite thing is tiny islands just a few miles long that amazingly have humans and cars. How do they make a living?
    Think I will try Paris--thanks.

    Thanks, thought you might like him. Isn't this Cody ride just the best? CO-D.

    Trust me he noticed. I am just thrilled that almost everyone went to visit him. Thanks.

    Can't remember enjoying a World Series this much with my main team totally out of the running. This has a feel that would be hard to believe in a movie. Go Giants-Go Cody.

  21. Patti, I love this guy! Thanks so much for the recommendation.

  22. he does have great quotes!!
    I find you quotable as well, just sayin'

    have a good weekend

  23. 4BRemen2GMAhhh Paris. Yes that was on place I went to on one of my mother, daughter trips with my artistic daughter. She was amused by a local man who sat down at our patio table and began to flirt with me! She had not ever thought of a mom having admirers. We both still chuckle about that.

  24. marciamayo,
    He really is interesting isn't he? Think that is the general consensus.

    Thank you for thinking so.Praise from Ceasar.

    Funny how kids never see us a interesting to the opposite sex. Way to go mom.

  25. I resemble some of those quotes!, ha happy halloween to you.

  26. I will do that immediately! And thanks for the Heads Up, my dear Patti!

  27. Linda Starr,
    Me too, think that is why I liked them.

    I think you will enjoy him. Thanks.
