    No….sorry, Can’t agree. “It might have been………..worse” which is not a sad situation at all!

    • CherryPie says:

      I was thinking from the point of view, that I didn’t even try!

      Your thought, ‘it might have been worse’ is far more uplifting :-)

      Hmmm! you have got me thinking on that one…

    Definitely among the saddest, Cherie. Are you in melancholy mode? Hope not. Wishing you a good week, anyway :-) .

    • CherryPie says:

      I am not at all melancholy, this is just one of my quotes from my web page. I thought it would be fun to post them on my blog one a week. When I counted them up there were exactly 52. They are listed on my web page in alphabetical order. I am just putting them in my blog in the same order.

      I am nearly at the end of the 52, which when read together mean something. I am thinking about carrying on with the Cherie’s Place thought for the week beyond the 52, what do you think?

    Never … ha ha ha ha ha … trust people who use superlatives. People who would use superlatives always … ha ha ha … ought to be met with suspicion.
    And even a bit more seriously: Mr Greenleave with hindsight will hopefully have spotted himself, how utterly stupid is what he considered to be an aphorism. Pathetic. Wrong. Stupid.

    Did I ever mention I like your ‘Thoughts of the week’, CherryPie? :)

    I love your thoughts of the week… and I love that photo too :-)

  5. Sean Jeating says:

    Oh, no. I enjoyed this post very much, CherryPie. :)

    I deeply appreciate “Thoughts for the Week”. The main reason I seldom comment, on those posts, is that most of them always bring back so many memories. And if I would say one word, I would say a thousand…This is not the place for the story of my life!

    But, please, keep them coming. They’re good for my mind, soul and heart. All the best, CherryPie.:-)

    • CherryPie says:

      I am glad you enjoy them :-) Everyone seems to like the series so I will carry on with them :-)

      Maybe you should start a blog of your own to share your thoughts :-)

  7. Claudia says:

    And the “Waren Mill” photo has this nostalgic look, very appropriate to the thought expressed.

  8. jameshigham says:

    Looks not unlike where I used to be.

  9. Phidelm says:

    Love the photos, Cherie; don’t always agree with the sentiments expressed in the ‘thoughts’ – but that’s half the fun ;-) ! Mxx
