On The Bricks

August 22, 2020

          Olivia Joules is the character is a set of novels about a freelance journalist with an overactive imagination, written by Helen Fielding. Olivia Joules teaches you these Rules for Living:

* Never panic. Stop, breathe, think.

* No one is thinking about you. They’re thinking about themselves, just like you.

* Never change your haircut or color before an important event.

* Nothing is either as bad or good as it seems.

* Do as you would be done by, e.g thou shalt not kill.

* It is better to buy one expensive thing that you really like than several cheap ones that you only quite like.

* Hardly anything matters. If you get upset, ask yourself, “Does it really matter?”

* The key to success lies in how you pick yourself up from failure.

* Be honest and kind.

* Only buy clothes that make you feel like doing a small dance.

* Trust your instincts, not your overactive imagination.

* Don’t expect the world to be safe or life to be fair.

          Famous Okie information: Basketball coach Bertha Frank Teague from Byng was the first woman in the National Basketball Hall of Fame.

Keep going on your New Years resolutions: Reduce your waste. Some research says the average American produces over 2,000 pounds of trash every year. Reduce your waste by ditching paper towels in favor of rags you cut up from old towels and clothes. Another easy switch is to use reusable grocery bags. It makes a difference!

Made me laugh: Parallel lines have so much in common. Too bad they will never meet.

Hope you had a great time at Pioneer Days. Thank you to the many volunteers and sponsors that made it happen.

          See you on the bricks soon!
