    I like that one, I'm going to steal that and use it at work whenever we're having a bad day.

    Chuckle, not a new saying either.

    Spent a career in the military. Back in my Nam days ran into a fellow who'd been active duty back into WW2. I forget what we were discussing but I quoted that saying in response to whatever we were talking about and he just laughed and said that saying was old when he was a young boot.

    Some things never change.
