From a cartoon featuring a vicar’s wife talking to a rustic old chap with an injured foot.
Vicar’s wife: “Now that you can’t get about and are not able to read, how do you manage to occupy the time? ”
Rustic man: “Well, mum, sometimes I sits and thinks and then again I just sits.”

Staunch favourites of my children and grandchildren.
The quote came to mind as I sat and watched another one of our beautiful sunsets last night.
