     On decision making.....Mama always said, "When in doubt, don't".  It applies to just about anything!
     Buying used cars,
     Hot air balloon ride on a hot day,
     Relationships, should I, or shouldn't I...Just to name a few!  Mama was wise!  I should have listened to her more!

I believe what Magicman is referring to when he said "Blacksmiths have it made" is the old saying

"There's only two ways a blacksmith can go to hell, beat cold iron or not charging enough"  ;D  And yes Magic we do. 8)

I was reminded recently of a variation on an old saying by a friend of mine in high school:  "When the going gets tough ... it's tough to get going."

Lot of truth in that ...

This summer while cutting logs for the cabin, or dog was carrying on being goofy, my father in law commented. Oh to have a dogs life. Then his grandson says l dont know if that is a good wish, you would have to lick your butt. Lol
