A Wonderful Night's Sleep

Very much needed.

If you know me well, you know I'm a Bernie Siegel, MD fan, and love his ideas, thoughts, and books. I also post and read on his sight,

and he is a funny guy with very humorous ideas, and one of the things he asks people to do when you're contemplating an action and can't decide what to do. In the fashion of WWJD, Bernie, who is Jewish, has a different twist.

He says: WWLD

go ahead, ponder it a bit

Bernie is an animal lover, whose family home, I'm told, is more like a zoo. He suggests we ask ourselves:

What Would Lassie Do?

Didn't Lassie solve every problem that came her way?
Didn't she always know what to do?
Didn't she always save the day?

Heck, who can forget the time the Lassie's Mother had her foot caught in the cougar trap, and there was a cougar in the tree!!
June sent Lassie back home to the farm house to get the "C clamp". (and held up her hands to show the shape) Well, Lassie, cocked her head to the side, and understood. She ran off to get the needed tool to free June. Alas, Lassie didn't get it right the first time, and she brought back, instead, the cheese slicer, which just happens to be shaped just like a C clamp. It was an honest mistake. June sent her back again, and Lassie was able to retreive the right tool and June was free. (this is an actual episode, I kid you not)

But the point of MY story IS:

Sometimes the best thing for Lassie to do is take a nap.

And that's my plan for today. Taking naps when needed.
