– Thought for the Day


If you lost some old black-
and-white photos Thurs­­
day at the Target on
Robert C. Daniel Jr. Park­way, Shelley Burge wants to get them back to you.

She called Monday to say she found the pictures in the bottom of her shopping cart. They were in one of those plastic containers that billfolds have.

There was a first name on one – “Doris” – but no last names. Another photo refers to a 1948 engagement party. References to Bronx, N.Y., and Miami Beach are on some of them.

So, if you are missing some photos or know who is, let me know, or call the store.


EASTER SURPRISE: On Sunday morning, I was up and out early when something crossed my path.

It darted quickly through the beam of car headlights not far from my house, and at first I thought it was a cat. But it hopped.

And had long ears.

I laughed to myself because I haven’t had a bunny hop across my path in years and here one was – on Easter, no less.

I wondered whether there was some omen regarding bounding bunnies protocol, and here’s what I found:

• It is good luck for a rabbit to cross your path. (Yes!)

• But seeing a rabbit on the way to work is unlucky. (Nope.)

• If you dream about a rabbit it means you will be visited by misfortune.

• Seeing a rabbit cross behind you means bad luck is on its way.

Katie Templeton, of Devere

100th birthday Saturday. I believe Asbury Methodist will help her celebrate the
achievement. Congratulat­ions.


ZZZZZZ: Dr. Thomas Dillard wrote to thank me for my Friday comments on naps and even offered a tour of the Georgia Regional University sleep clinic.

“Thanks again for raising awareness of sleepiness, which has multiple causes, many of which can be treated,” he wrote in an e-mail.

TODAY’S JOKE: From a passenger ship, everyone can see a bearded man on a small island who is shouting and desperately waving his hands.

“Who is it?” a passenger asks the captain.

“I’ve no idea,” the captain says, “but every year when we pass, he goes nuts.”
