The word “final” immediately brought to mind exams at the end of each school year.  I went hunting and found a few very amusing quote on those fretful days.  Enjoy!


student + dying = Studying.

Our education system doesn’t teach us teamwork:  When we solve our tests in collaboration with others, they call it copying….Foolish people.

The brain is the most outstanding organ. It works for 24 hours, 365 days, right from your birth, until you step into the exam hall.

A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.

Exam offer!!! Bring a copy on exam day, scratch and show it to your nearest “professor” win a free trip to the principal’s office, and enjoy 3 years vacation at home.

Dear Math, please grow up and solve your own problems, I’m tired of solving them for you.

A Thermometer is the only thing that gets a ‘DEGREE’ without having a ‘BRAIN’!

If you are given an open-book exam, you will forget your book.

Examinations – the only way to know something at least for a few days.






Life is a maze full of wonder

Left right or I must now ponder

Each has exquisite untold surprise

Shall I stand here longer and analyze

Or take a path less trodden, unknown

Allow my life to unfold on its own

Able to let go and go with the flow

Living my life with intrepid gusto

Enjoying each moment as it unfolds

Fresh bright and new I now behold

With great joy the maze opens wide

To allow a new experience untried

I welcome you now with open arms

I take the bull by the proverbial horns

Each encounter something of a delight

Knowing that everything will be alright




Mischievious #AtoZchallenge #amwriting


Gabe had never met the woman he was teaming up with.  She’d run through a gamut of partners.  He’d heard she was capable reliable and brilliant.  That’s what her file indicated.  Some men couldn’t handle that in a woman.  Too few who could accept a woman could be strong determined powerful in her own way and were threatened by that strength.  He wasn’t.

In fact, they were requirements he expected, in any partner, on every level of his business.  Failure meant they put everyone at risk.  That he would not tolerate.

Since her file was a mile thick, he decided to take a look at this woman himself.  Partner with her for the six months she’d signed on for.

The six months had passed and as he sat writing up her review he was pleased.  If she wanted the job, it was hers, she’d earned it.  Her candor, wit, charm, capability, and  reliability were outstanding.  She was beyond brilliant in her performance and in sizing up any given situation.  Then there was the mischievous side he’d come to know.  She’d pull tricks and pranks, that sparkle rarely left her eye.  The only time it disappeared was on the job.  Her eyes dramatically changed the sparkle was gone, they were flat, perceptive intuitive.

Today it was his turn.  He’d towed her car to the impound plastered it with your fired slogans with balloons hanging out every conceivable space doors, windows, trunk, bumper, you name it, he’d added balloons. They said “Yours” “If”  “You” “Want” “It!”  Then he’d stood back and awaited her arrival.  She was a picture. Annoyance turned to shock to stunned to a smile a mile wide.  She scanned the area searching. When she found him her eyes twinkled and she gave him a thumbs up.  She was in.


Ruell-Up in Flames November Notes

When you have the strength to stand

And you have a plan in hand

With a foundation or a platform

We can weather any storm

So if everything should go up in flames

We shall all the fires tame

Together forever standing

United our arms banding

We’re standing the test of time

Our love lasting for a lifetime

Oh the yin and yang of it all

Sometimes I feel so small

Test of faith, test of love

Tests that will not fit like a glove

A journey an ongoing quest

Often i am confounded and beat my breast

Which path to take, left or right

My decisions often cut like a knife

Draped in confusion amidst all this

For there is no right or wrong only what is

Still we have come so far, so many tests completed

We are at last at the big table seated

Feeling accomplished and delighted

Through it all we carry on undaunted

Surely more tests our way will come

We shall handle them with apolmb

For the end result is what we seek

To get there we must not be meek

But take in hand that which comes our way

As upon the field of growth we play

One day perhaps to achieve

All that we now perceive

Baby steps must follow each undertaken bravely

Until the ultimate test, that of our humanity

Our goal a simple one

Long since begun

And when we listen to the whisper

We shall acknowledge our strength of character.
