Sometimes…

Sometimes I sits and thinks, sometimes I just sit

… I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.
Quote altered slightly and used by A.A. Milne although originally it was from an edition of Punch magazine from 1906;

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.”
By Gunning-King, 24 October 1906, Volume 131, page 297.

I have always liked A.A. Milne for creating Winnie the Pooh and all of the other wonderful characters in the Hundred Acre Wood.

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.
