Cincy’s Song of the Day (3.13.13)
Roger Miller- King Of The Road
Still one of the best songs ever.
Good morning y’all. Hope you remembered to turn your clocks ahead. :)
Knowing can be a curse on a person’s life. I’d traded in a pack of lies for a pack of truth, and I didn’t know which one was heavier. Which one took the most strength to carry around?

There are a lot of people who have it worse of then me.

F. Scott Fitzgerald - quote
-The failure and the success both believe in their hearts that they have accurately balanced points of view, the success because he’s succeeded, and the failure because he’s failed. The successful man tells his son to profit by his father’s good fortune, and the failure tells his son to profit by his father’s mistakes.
