Santa: "I no longer keep a naughty or nice list, I only keep up with those who accept my friend request on Facebook."
Happy St. Patrick's Day eve, here on this Thursday, March 16, 2017. I thought I would get that out there just in case some folks are diddling around looking for something green to wear tomorrow. I've heard the following saying all my life, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." I've heard it repeated over and over, however, the quote itself originated in a play written by William Congreve. It premiered quite a long time ago, in 1697. The full quote was, "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned / Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned." At any rate, I have an update for you and it involves that saying. I've been reading about a dispute between one of my Santa Claus brothers and a lady who is in the business of booking Santas. He was not paid for some of the events he did through her agency. He is now suing her and the agency. His comments about it were somewhat humorous. He said it was not his intention to hurt this lady personally. He only wanted to make sure no other Santas would be deceived by her agency. He went on to say that he would not be satisfied until she is sentenced to prison and her business is kaput. So much for not wanting to hurt this lady personally. (I think serving time and being bankrupt might cause her some discomfort.) This caused me to come up with a newer rendition of Mr. Congreve's famous, albeit, often misquoted verse, "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned / nor hell a fury like a Santa who goes unpaid for his services."
couldn't help it when that nostalgic feeling came over me and I had to say to myself, "I've been blessed and one more time, thank you, Lord." Amen. ....More later.
