DINNER THOUGHTS

I made asparagus tonight for dinner [along with catfish and corn] because Susie likes it.  The asparagus naturally put me in mind of Babe Ruth [Google it], and that reminded me of his greatest one-liner.   One year, Ruth was paid more than the President of the United States, who, as it happened, was Calvin Coolidge.  When he was asked whether he thought that was appropriate, the Babe replied laconically, "I had a better year."

You had to love him!
