Life in North Wales with an eccentric Welshman, a dog in the twilight of his years and one in the 'know-it-all' of youth.
"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Definition of a politician
While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand wascaught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up aconversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around topoliticians and their role as our leaders.
The old rancher said, "Well, as I see it, most politicians are 'PostTurtles'.''
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle'was.
Courtesy of TK once again...
The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road and you comeacross a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle."
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued toexplain.
"You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong upthere, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyondhis ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb arse put himup there to begin with."
