    The sweetest words in the English language

    Hey folks,

    I used to think the sweetest words involved love, or peace, or the imminent prospect of ecstatic joy. But I've changed my position. Having just received an email, I now understand this is the best phrase in the language:

    "Your book shipped today!"

    Thanks,

    Bill

    LOL, I understand. But the sweetest words are "Here is your commission check!"
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Right on Bill and may the next sweet words follow soon, "Your check is in the mail."

    Many years ago I started to write a book. There was just not enough time for my life and writing a book. The amount of work is not conceivable by anyone who has not tried to write one. You are a brave man and I hope you have great success.

    Enjoy,
