a Dogs memory of Sunday Afternoon

  Andy Rooney , is like an old dog. He is always there for you and  has the gift of saying so  much with so few words. Enjoy.......

I've  learned.... That the  best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.  

I've learned.... That when you're in love, it shows.  

I've learned.... That just one person saying to me,  'You've made my day!' makes my day. 

I've  learned.... That having  a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful  feelings in the world. 

I've learned.... That being kind is more  important than being right. 

I've  learned.... That you  should never say no to a gift from a child.  

I've learned.... That I can always pray for someone when  I don't have the strength to help him in some other way.  

I've learned.... That no matter how serious your life  requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.  

I've learned.... That sometimes all a person needs is a  hand to hold and a heart to understand.  

I've learned.... That simple walks with my father around  the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me  as an adult. 

I've learned.... That life is like a roll  of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it  goes. 

I've learned.... That we should be glad God doesn't give  us everything we ask for. 

I've  learned...... That money  doesn't buy class. 

I've learned.... That it's those small  daily happenings that make life so spectacular.    

I've  learned... That under  everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and  loved. 

I've learned.... That to ignore the facts does not change  the facts. 

I 've learned.... That when you plan to  get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue  to hurt you. 

I've learned..... That love, not time,  heals all wounds. 

I've learned.... That the easiest way for  me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter  than I am. 

I've learned.... That everyone you meet  deserves to be greeted with a smile.. 

I've  learned.... That no one  is perfect until you fall in love with them.  

I've learned... That life is tough, but I'm tougher.  

I've learned..... That opportunities are never lost;  someone will take the ones you miss.. 

I've  learned.... That when  you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.  

I've learned..... That I wish I could have told my Mom  that I love her one more time before she passed away.  

I've learned.... That one should keep his words both soft  and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.  

I've learned.... That a smile is an inexpensive way to  improve your looks. 

I've learned.... That when your newly  born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist,  that you're hooked for life. 

I've  learned.... That  everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the  happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.  

I've learned..... That the less time I have to work with,  the more things I get done. 

To all of you.... Make sure  you read all the way down to the last sentence. 

It's  National Friendship Week. Show your friends how much you care.  Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if it means  sending it back to the person who sent it to you. If it comes  back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends..  HAPPY FRIENDSHIP WEEK TO YOU!!!!!! YOU ARE MY FRIEND AND I AM  HONORED!

I'm an Algis fan but not a Rooney fan. Never trust a man with rapunzel length eyebrows is a lesson he should learn.

Rated for Algist not Rooney!
You are so right about Andy's words. Your photo is magnificent. In fact, the photo in the ad right above this comment box, tho nowhere near as impressive as your dog, is...pretty good. ;-D
I learned after watching Andy Rooney on Sunday night, the weekend was officially over and it was time to start getting ready for the next work week. I will miss him terribly!
I'm with Fernsy: Rooney makes me want to barf ... but I am always pro-Algis!!
Hard to believe Andy Rooney is retiring! A fabulous tribute to him, I hope he sees it as I am positive he would appreciate it!

Andy Rooney has never taught anything to anyone but himself.
Thoth., Your replies are always so worth reading.

Art James, So glad you had a wonderful time and shared it here.THX

Mango Sherbert, Hey the same for me.Thanks so much!

Robin Sneed , Yes that might be true but the ripples from what he says still have an impact.Thanks again.
Great upbeat post.

Andy Rooney did some great stuff over the years and he has had remarkable, inspiring longevity.
It is hard to accept that Andy Rooney will no longer be dispensing his wisdom on 60 Minutes. What a hard act to follow. At least this might signal the end of the bs spam emails that start out "Did you hear what Andy Rooney said on 60 Minutes?"
Love your pictures, what great doggy portraits!
Lovely words, and Pictures! Did you do those?
Robert Steibel, Yes thanks for that. I was sorry to learn on his last Broadcast that he was very anti fan. I really feel so dissatisfied when someone of such talented proportion wants not to know or hear from his fans.

Kathy Knechtges, Thanks so much!

Dicky Neely Thanks D. Yes I guess it is the end of an era.

LuminousMuse Yes, the images are all mine.Thanks again.
Very nice and much appreciated.
