Do you know a person who whistles?  I can’t whistle worth a hoot, but my daddy could.  When I was a kid it made me crazy because I wasn’t what you’d call a morning person.  I’m more of one now since I discovered coffee.  My dad got up in a good mood and started his morning routine by whistling.  Many a morning I heard it and put my pillow over my head as I grumbled.  Hey – sad but true.

 Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.  – Doug Larson

I don’t hear people whistle anymore.  Did fathers forget to pass the trait along?  Is the world just such a bleak and desolate place that there is no point to it anymore?  Well, pardon me, but my parents lived in the days of the great depression – and those days were not so wonderful either.  Daddy was a Veteran of WWII and he was a whistler back then too.  Whistle your way through a war?  Well – yeah!

He takes requests on twitter.  Jus’ sayin’…

If doctors could just prescribe one hour of meaningful whistling every day for their depressed patients, the drug manufacturers would have a fit because their profits would plummet.  They would no longer be selling folks Prozac and other mood enhancing drugs.

Seriously – even if you are like me and can’t whistle worth a plugged nickel – give it a shot today.  It really does make you feel better.  In my case it sounds horrible – but even that makes me laugh – and that’s still a good thing!

Whistling is less about perfect pitch and more about perfect attitude.  – Linda Palmer

It’s not that we don’t live in very serious times, but I learned first hand that it’s about the attitude you face problems with that will help you come through better than you were before.  I think the dwarfs in Snow White were on to something when they suggested the idea to Whistle While You Work, but I don’t think grumpy and sleepy really whistled.  I think they must have faked it.  There’s no way they could be that way if they had really whistled!  Hmm…  I should investigate that angle.  Wink!  😉


  1. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.


Let me know what you think!!!
