Yellow Mellow-Bellow

Strolling along one of my favorite small towns,
Northfield, Minnesota.


Beautiful
Cannon River.

Good morning! 
Welcome to another


our theme is



YELLOW!

"It is amazing what you can accomplish
 if you do not care who gets the credit."
Harry S. Truman
That's integrity.



Looking for the sunshine!


Lately it's been a chameleon-like ability 
to adapt to my surroundings.
Seems if you don't have the sense to know
 that you can't win if you don't play-
you lose.




This space Available because the (Big Stores) 
are the cheaper way to shop.


"Look on every exit as being 
an entrance somewhere else."
Tom Stoppard


"There are so many doors to open.
I am impatient to begin."
Charlie Gordan

"Be an opener of doors."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


I grew up in a little town without alleys.
A most charming place I've come to learn.




"The buck stops here."
Know who said it?
Popularized by U.S. President Harry S. Truman
who kept a sign with that phrase on his desk in the Oval Office.
The phrase refers to the notion that the President
has to make the decisions and accept the ultimate 
responsibility for those actions.





"Actions are the seed of fate, deeds grow into destiny."
Harry S. Truman


These small town shops can't compete with big store outlets.
Of course you're going to shop for the lowest price.



"Men make history and not the other way around.
In periods where there is no leadership
society stands still.
Progress occurs when
courageous, skillful leaders
seize the opportunity
to change things for the better."
Harry S. Truman


Be useful, be honorable, be compassionate
Be Honest and sincere.
make a difference while you can.
Mostly just be Kind.
 and take good care of you.

Yellow is such an uplifting happy colour, super series of images here Karen. Somehow I think Mr Truman's inspiring quotes will be remembered always while everything about your current leader would be well forgotten ☺
