Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: November 21, 2022

If you lose wonder,
you’ve lost everything.

~ Goldie Hawn
American – Actress Born: November 21, 1945

Porte Ponderings:

My youngest sister had her Annual Christmas Tea on the weekend. She collects and displays Dicken’s figures. This year she arranged them according to location in London England. Complete with the Queen’s coffin at one end and the working train at the other. Her collection grows every year as she scours sales on line and in person. Buying a whole lot just to get one building or character, then selling duplicates. So much so she’s become familiar with the local post office staff and invited them to come see her extensive collection. She now has 120 buildings on display.

This sense of wonder and excitement continues and brings joy to her to include others in her annual tea.

I have had many troubles in my life,
but the worst of them never came.

~ James A. Garfield
American – President November 19, 1831 – September 19, 1881

Porte Ponderings:

Well, I sent e-mails to the 3 Seniors’ facilities in my home town to offer Christmas Photo Booths and give the residents a 4×6″ photo each. My Christmas Backdrop would be perfect for sharing with them, or I could use their Christmas Decorations. We’ll see if any respond or show interest in my gift.

I’ll tell you one thing,
it’s a cruel, cruel world.

~ Danny DeVito
American – Actor Born: November 17, 1944

Porte Ponderings:

Happy Birthday Danny DeVito.

You’ve made us laugh so many times and taught us how to laugh at ourselves.

It may be a cruel, cruel world, but like a rose in the first snowfall there is beauty in everything.

I don’t want to achieve immortality by being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
I want to achieve immortality by not dying.

~ William De Morgan
British – Artist November 16, 1839 – January 15, 1917

Porte Ponderings:

Bookings for Christmas Minis are starting to fill in. Surprisingly December 3rd is the most popular date. I though people would want them earlier. But with modern technology I guess Christmas Cards are becoming a thing of the past.

Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: November 15, 2022

Nothing is more responsible
for the good old days
than a bad memory.

~ Franklin Pierce Adams
American – Writer November 15, 1881 – March 23, 1960

Porte Ponderings:

A fresh snowfall of the season inspires Christmas shopping, decorating and getting those cards ready to mail.

I’m hoping it also inspires people to contact me to have their Christmas minis taken to include their family photos with their cards. 😉
