A day late and a dollar short
A stitch in tine saves nine
The early bird gets the worm
If you don’t hurry up you will be late to your own funeral
We will sell no wine before its time
Fun for to make Kitten Britches
One of these things is not like the others.
WAIT! stop for a second.
Ok, disregard the last one and then tell me what is similar about the rest of them.
Right you are! They are all about time. More pointedly Timing.
Today’s Mental Moment…
is about timing too…
Wow. Who’d a thunk it? There was so much wrong with that sentence. Oh well onward and forward, time is ticking away and I only have a moment. Or ..3.
There are many things that we do every day that require the perfect timing and many things that happen to go much smoother with perfect of near perfect timing.
A lot of timing is intuition, some is training (think music and comedy or acting) some is just plain dumb luck.
There is music or telling a joke, or asking to borrow money or taking a picture or any number of things that just a moment sooner or later could result in a different outcome then expected.
How about rush hour traffic? If you left your office say a half hour earlier., would you miss the traffic? Or spent n extra half hour catching up on some work would you miss 2 hours stuck in gridlock?
Making a doctor appointment for your kid when they have an earache? Too soon and you get sent home with nothing for it and too late, you end up in the ER in the middle of the night with a miserable child with a raging fever.
Playing the stock market? Too soon or too late could mean the difference between making a killing or being wiped out.
Playing the lottery ? Be in line at just the right time and you win, he one before or after and you are kicking yourself.
How about knowing when a friend needs a hug or an ear, or some creative new profanity? Too soon and you are pushy, too late and well, you are a day late and a dollar short. or possibly just come across as insensitive.
Anyways, it wa just something I thought was time to point out. Kinda make you go hmmmmm.
Layovers to catch Meddlers. (or just because)
Here is a clip showing some photos taken at the exact right time. Kinda cool.
To Your Mental State, whatever it may be, (and if you don;t like it, wait five minutes. All in good time 😉 )

I took one look at the picture of the video and couldn’t look….I hate sharks..lol but you’re right on ‘timing being everything’..Diane
oh its the only shark picture and the only one that is scary (I if I remember correctly) they are fairly amazing it is a video but shows 20 pics that were snapped at just the right moment – you have seen the shark – that is the one…some are too funny…
Okay I’ll close my eyes for a couple of seconds and then open them….Diane
“When a friend needs some new creative profanity”- awesome!!

You are so right, timing is everything! My timing has been so off all year I think I need to put a foot in my azz.
Loved the video, some of the pictures were great.
I made up the mental Moment to fit the video 🙂 I get lost on YouTube… Ive got one in que for the 8 largest holes in the world.., not sure about the theme on that one yet 😉
Not only did I enjoy the post, but I spotted some of my favorite people in the comment section.
And I still like monkeys.

Monkeys can be dangerous. They are stronger than they look.
From time to time, always encounter earaches one way or another. I just remedy this disease by taking antibiotics and of course ear healing oils derived from herbs. .:,;`
