"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere." --Dr. Seuss
With that in mind, I share with you the following, in the hopes that it will at least bring a smile to your face as you embark on what might be a busy month for you, too.
1. "Someone asked me, if I were stranded on a desert island what book would I bring...'How to Build a Boat.' " --Steven Wright

4. "From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put." --Winston Churchill
5. "If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers." --Doug Larson
6. "Listen up, Internet: there is no 'h' in 'wacky.' Got that? THERE IS NO 'H' IN WACKY.' Thank you." --Dave Barry
7. "Practically everybody in New York has half a mind to write a book, and does." --Groucho Marx

Yes, I believe what Mark Twain said: "Humor is mankind's greatest blessing."
And this, from Bob Hope: "I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful."
In our household, when my husband faced retirement after nearly 35 years of teaching, I only had one thing to say: "As long as you keep me laughing, we'll be okay."
He has and we are. After all, from there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.
Is humor important to you, too? Any humorous lines you care to share?
