My grandfather wasn't much for borrowing money.
He kind of believed that you should only get what you can afford, that you should pay your own way in the world, and that you shouldn't be beholden to anyone.
He had a saying he used to use from time to time. He'd tell us "You can't raise this year's crops with next year's rain."
Another saying he used a lot, when we suggested, attempted, or wished for something futile, he would say "Might as well try and hold back the wind with a pitchfork. "
He'd use this line frequently when somebody would say something like they wished their puppies would stay little forever or they hope that winter would not come so fast.
Time is like the wind through the pitchfork - it just keeps going and there's nothing we can do to stop it; and so here we are at W.
This is the last time my words will appear on an intro here.
It has been wonderful working with all of you and getting to know so many amazing fascinating and talented people all over the world I'm going to miss you all.
I want to wish you all good luck in your future endeavors.
And now it's time to go and see what words and works The Winds of time have wrought on your window of the World Wide Web this wonderful Wednesday
