===========

As I read through it, already cheerful due to our million hits achievement last night this morning –https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2015/08/15/one-million-rra-readers-hallelujah/   – I laughed aloud more than once, so maybe our newer readers will enjoy the quotes too!

I certainly laughed out loud at some of the quotes!
