Trumpet dot com



I caught Trumpet (pictured above) surfing the Internet. Again. He was looking at some dog-fancy sites. Dang parental controls don't work on wily wiener dogs, I guess. Anyway, he told me that he doesn't know who said it, but prescribes to the following point of view:

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can get going without pep pills,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him,
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics,
Then, my friend, you are ALMOST as good as your dog.

Do you think he's trying to tell me something?

With wisdom like that, Trumpy deserves his own blog.
