It's a great life if you don't weaken

That was Aunt Olla's quote this morning when I stopped into the Hilton while I was in town. The quote, I found out when I got home, was spoken by a man named John Buchan in 1919 and is regarded as the 18th most memorable quote in the English language, according to one website's ranking.

But, as I sat there and we attempted to visit, Olla said "the vibes aren't right." Neither of us was particularly talkative. Neither of us are morning people. So I didn't stay all that long.
