    1. I definitely think Milne had ADD, and a very healthy attitude about it, too. I belong to the same club you do and have spent years discovering my car keys in the most interesting places. For years I thought it was the result of bad character, but then I read Milne and found out I was having adventures.

      It’s nice to meet a fellow traveler. Thanks for commenting and for subscribing.

      1. Having only been diagnosed last year, I’m also still constantly making discoveries about life with ADD.

        My first thought in reading your comment was….so THAT’S why I constantly find my car keys in the refrigerator!

  1. I read a comment in Readers’ Digest about a time when Franklin asked Eleanor’s secretary where Eleanor had gone for that morning. The secretary replied to the President that she believed Mrs. Roosevelt had gone to prison. He answered, “I am not a bit surprised because of her recent activities.”

    I, too, have always been a fan of Eleanor Roosevelt and am old enough to remember her.

    1. I’m old enough to remember her too. Do you all remember the flap about Hillary claiming to visit with the ghost of Eleanor? Hillary made a joke of it after Bill’s political opponents made fun of her. She said, “I spoke with Mrs. Roosevelt this morning, and she agrees.”
