Good evening and welcome to Friday evening in my beautiful cool city and I have had a busy day - today I have been to Clinic for my first visit after three months and the news was good - bloodwork is all looking good and my blood pressure was at an acceptable level.   I now have another three months until my next visit.

There was no obvious reason for me to  become "twitch"/"squirrelly" but I did and am grateful for the care of someone who talked me through by fears and made me laugh.   I knew the fears were not rational ~ but then fear isn't.

We did very well in Friday evening traffic coming home and only caught one red light so it was plain sailing on the roads too..

Today would have been the 108th. Birthday of Dr. Seuss  (Theodor Seuss Geisel) and I recall many happy times with my children reading for hours such works as "The Cat in the Hat" "Green Eggs and Ham", "The Lorax" and "To Think that I saw it on Mulberry Street",   not forgetting of course "One Fish ,Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" and to this day I will gladly read to any child who will indulge me and share my joy.   A firm favourite of mine is "Oh, the Places You'll Go" and I often include that in a 16th. ~ 18th. or 21st. Birthday gift.

Many of the words from Dr. Seuss books have become part of our family language and when used everyone knows what we mean and these phrases are often used in conversation and it is very special

Here are just a few Dr. Seuss quotes:

There is a quite profound wisdom there and  I always enjoy revisiting - I often have to restrain myself from buying books such as these ~ and sometimes I lose the battle and come home with a Dr. Seuss book.

Enjoy this trip down memory lane, or if you are one of the lucky ones who still have children who love having these read to them - take out a few from the shelf and celebrate the birthday of a man who has brought such joy.

Our journey's are often difficult and filled with pain, but we dust ourselves off and pick up and start again, thankfully with the love and care and support of those who love us.

So on this Friday evening - and early Friday morning for those in the Northern Hemisphere, enjoy your evening/your day and a wonderful weekend.   If you have plans to get away - then do it and enjoy. I have a daughter on the way to Broken Hill for an engagement party and they will have to take a three hour detour because of flooding and bridges being down.   If you are travelling, then have a safe and wonderful time.

Thank you for visiting the Musings of My Heart - and heart that today remembers good times and fun books.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Love and hugs,

How could I have forgotten "How The Grinch Stole Christmas"?
