Thursday's Quote

Our ideals resemble the stars; you will not succeed in touching
them with your hands. But like seafarers on the desert waters,
you choose them as your guides, and following them you will reach your destiny. 

-- Carl Schurz -- 

Wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your suggestions about my rash.  Summer has never kind to my skin, but it seems as if since I've gotten older, it affects me even worse.  Guess it is because I am so fair.  Prickly heat on my chest and arms, and I always break out in the heat from the metal on my watch band.  They are controllable, but the one on my neck? That itch reminded me of childhood days when I'd picked up a case of poison ivy.  So, thanks again.  Will keep all of these things on hand.  August is going to be a long month.


  1. Beautiful quote! Mary, do you use laundry detergent without the scent and colors, etc. I get rashes from those detergents with all the additives. I like Tide-Free, and also Bounce-Free fabric softener sheets. I have noticed a major reduction in itchy skin. Just a thought. Take care!

  2. Husband asked how you were doing, with the rash. Now I can tell him that ...... Guess you have many ideas to try.

    But I'd think that it would be better to stick with one, for a couple of days, to see if it will work. Unless you have an awful reaction, of course.

    I'm no pharmacist and this is just my "Olden" common sense talking. He's not here a present, so I can't check with him. :-)

    Good luck, my Dear! I too get irritations, here and there. And have developed what-to-do's over the years. Sometimes I have to alternate from one what-to-do, to another.

    But! I do not have to spend time commuting on the Brooklyn to The City subway. Which time spent, must be worse for anything-which-is-bothering-you.

    Lots of gentle hugs.........

  3. I like having Thursday's Quote on a Wednesday -- makes me feel like I'm ahead of the game!

  4. lovely quote and i hope you find something that works on your rash.

  5. Debra, I have been ahead of myself all day here. I really thought it was Thursday. They had to come and get me to run Wednesday's group.

  6. a lovely, lovely quote Mary xoxo

  7. Beautiful quote Miss Mary...I do hope you are feeling better! :) Hang in's all downhill from here with the summer heat I hope? Seems to be tapering off in my neck of the woods.

    Blessings Mary!
