Living a Motto

Regarding personal responsibility, Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

I think my neighbor across the street has adopted this saying as his motto. One night this past week we had a snowfall that provided us with an accumulation of about an inch. Most would believe there was not enough snow to build a snowman, but not my neighbor. He just got busy and did the best he could with what nature had provided.

Way to go, Dave! Love your sense of humor.

    1. Indeed! Dave is a great neighbor.

  2. Admire Dave's hat-tip to tradition, the building of the snowman. The snowman is quite large enough, regardless the amount of snowfall.

    1. Vanilla, it probably is a good size for a really cold day.
