The reason I stopped making plans a long time ago…(K) Reply You, me and Rabbie Burns: ‘The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men, Gang aft agley, An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain, For promis’d joy!’ Reply Yes..that’s the real surprise Reply … sometimes unpleasant, of course, but we learn to take the rough with the smooth! Reply I usually have high (but not unrealistic) expectations, Dave. I just don’t let it bother me when they fail to come to fruition. 🙂 Reply Yup, there’s always Plan B and failing that, time to improvise! Reply My expectations are exceeded!! Reply Exceedingly pleased, Opher, nice to hear from you! Reply That´s so true…. I have always felt that I soon as I expect something from soemone (or Life itself) my expectations fall behind… If you don´t expect too much, then good things randomly pop up! 😀 Reply I always act as if nothing will come of it … I’m never wrong and usually intrigued.
