Presidental Proverb


Teddy Roosevelt pic and quote

“Speak softly”

Said Roosevelt

“And carry a big stick”

Passive-Agressive acumen

Old adage

Cinquain

On my walk today I met a gentleman who, in actuality, was walking with a big stick.

As we passed by one another and nodded a greeting, I spoke the quote to him and he smiled. “ Teddy Roosevelt” he said.

“ Oh, I thought it was Snoopy!” I said laughing.

When I got home a Google search proved the stick walker was right!

Guess I got my history lesson for the day!

Plus, a poem inspiration. 😊
