A student thought it was silly to attend school, this was his thoughts. The more you study, the more you know, the more you know, the more you forget. The more you forget, the less you know. The less you know, the less you forget, the less you forget the more you know. So what’s the use of going to school??
Have a nice week folks, sure looks good for most the week, farmers should be able to get some haying done. (They Hope) Take care and enjoy what you are doing.
God Bless!! L.T.A.
