Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.”   —   Satchel Paige

(I’ve never been a praying man.  I did *say my prayers* as a young boy, but when I had the Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and God discussion with my Mom, at age 7, I stopped.  But I can dig where Satchel is coming from.  If you’re going to pray just don’t do it when it’s something that you want.  That’s just being selfish.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Airplanes may kill you, but they ain’t likely to hurt you.”   —   Satchel Paige

(This one was a fairly tough solve.  No single letter words, and no words that end in E.  And, it always takes me a long time to go to AIN’TMy Momma raised me right!  LOL!  Ole Satchel was as good of a philosopher/pontificator as he was a baseball pitcher.  He certainly did love the game!   Hey!  Today is Boog Powell’s 79th birthday.  He was one of my boyhood heroes!  Happy birthday, Boog!   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Airplanes may kill you, but they ain’t likely to hurt you.”   — Satchel Paige

(Fairly tough one!  No word ending in “e”, no single letter words. Took a while to get this one started.  “Kill” and “likely” were the words to get this going for me.  Although, I did try “tall” and “lately first, but kind of knew that the “g” was going to be the “t”.   I always have some trouble with any quote that has “ain’t” in it.  I guess my mama done learnt me too good.)   — YUR ;~)
