Whimsical Wednesday # 265

Welcome back to Whimsical Wednesday!

The day for your googled giggle that gets you over the hump that is Wednesday and sliding down into the weekend.





Priorities:
Hundreds of years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in,or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that my ruins become a tourist attraction.

    1. only slightly confused; I'll get thinking about it, but I'm not inventive or inspired so I doubt I'll come up with anything.

  2. This is a good idea to ponder. Wonder how I can make my mark?

    1. Granny Annie; I did once leave my initials and the date in fresh concrete laid in the backyard where I was living at the time. Future tenants can wonder who I was I suppose.

    1. Plasman; I'm sure you'll come up with something. And you could leave the exact same mark everywhere you travel and have future generations wondering.

  5. I wanted to leave my mark, so I wrote a great American Novel. It bombed. I painted great works. They bombed. I wanted to raise the most influential family ... and we all know how that turned out.

    1. S.J.Qualls; I'm a bit like you, tried and failed, on the family at least. Never did write or paint anything significant.

  7. Those words are ever so true, we just to have to remember certain things from past years long ago - and we admire or scorn those things today.

    1. Margaret-whiteangel; the first part of the saying is true, years from now no one will care that we had the biggest and best of anything, so save your money. But we need people to do stuff like this or the world will become dull and boring.

    1. Dora; maybe. We'll never know for sure. Probably it depends on whether we write anything significant about world events, or just a "piece of fluff" blog like mine.

  9. Dora, certain blogs are archived in Australia, Andrew's blog has been.
    We had a certain Prime Minister that cartoonists loved because he had the look of an Easter Island statue.

    1. JahTeh; I forgot Andrew's blog has been archived, I wonder what future leaders will make of it during the next century or two?
      Would that be PK? The Easter Island statues are more dignified looking.

    1. Barbara; I've left children and grand children, that's a start. They're all smarter than me, so perhaps they'll be the ones to leave their mark.

  11. That would take some thinking but it most likely would be something that one just stumbled on to, anyway.

    1. Belva; I think you're right about that.

  12. River, Malcolm Fraser, old stone face himself. The cartoonist loved Keating for his long nose and after 5 shadow.

  13. JahTeh; of course, Malcolm Fraser. I'd completely forgotten about him.

  14. I think I'm already a tourist attraction!! ;)

  15. I doubt that anything I do or leave behind will be a tourist attraction but perhaps just our being here leaves a legacy. I was sitting at my grandmother's funeral and one of my cousins looked around the packed room and said...just think how many of us wouldn't be here if she never lived. My father, me, my children and my grandchildren would of never existed. Sobering thought.
