Our theme this month was 'Predictions' and my thoughts turned to the little slips of paper in fortune cookies.   For years I have collected these whenever we get together with friends at our favorite Chinese restaurant.  I have a whole jar full.   As I went through them, this one stood out, and the photo of 'Frank' seemed to connect with it.  He looks like the patient type.  The photo is from my extensive collection of 'lost people' that end up in a shoebox at some antique store for $2.
Here's hoping that Frank is rewarded for his 'everlasting patience.'

I save those too! But I don't have a whole jar full, just a few, mostly from when we get takeout. They are fun, aren't they?

You know, it didn't really strike me until looking at this again on your blog how circular it is! The prediction says his patience will be rewarded, and his hope is that the prediction is true. It's kind of ironic in that, isn't it? I mean, he's hoping for what? The prediction promises what? Each refers back to the other!

YES Sharon, that is right!!!! You are the first one who has mentioned that and it was my intent all along.
