Deacon’s Wisdom

Looking to get myself a place in Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations, let me offer this nugget to the world, putting a new spin on a sentiment that I’m sure all of you have heard before:

Opinions are like asses. The only one I feel any obligation to admire or examine on an ongoing basis belongs to my wife.

    LOL…well, I’m glad to know that nearly 13 years of marriage has taught me at least one thing of value that I can share. 😉

    Smart man. Although you need to keep an eye on your own as well.

Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
