Goldilocks and Troutbirder

Friends Romans Countrymen I'm still way behind reading the Decline and Fall of Your Empire. Also thereupon neglecting my book review blog.  Whereas, I shall now make amends by going back almost as far as the Roman Empire by recalling a favorite book of childhood wisdom introduced to me by my mother..... Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge.  Goldilocks was hungry.  She tasted the porridge from the first bowl.
 "This porridge is too hot!" she exclaimed.
 So, she tasted the porridge from the second bowl.
 "This porridge is too cold," she said
 So, she tasted the last bowl of porridge.
 "Ahhh, this porridge is just right," she said happily and she ate it all up.
From the wisdom of our mothers and childhood lessons.   Perhaps our leaders in Washington and all of us as citizens should cool down and warm up to working together and make it "just right."...:)

Wise words to end the year. The same wish applies to my country, as well.

Wishing you and your lovely wife a Happy New Year. Thanks for all your interesting posts.

Loved that story. Goldy was the beginning and end of my acting career in the 4th grade and yes, we can only hope.
Happy New Year to the Troutbirders.
