Hello Everybody. The Free Choice E-zine's Editor-In-Chief Lee Houston, Junior here.

As previously mentioned, today would have been my turn at hosting anyway, but the search to replace Autumn the Puppy continues.

In any event, a new year is upon us and hopefully it will be much better than last year! 😷

They say fortune favors the brave, and the fortune cookie is supposed to favor whoever happens to read the slip of paper within it. So with that in mind, let's look at some "fortunes", with my comments afterward.

We treat this world of ours as though we had a spare in the trunk.
Our Editor-In-Chief.
True. Science Fiction is a wonderful genre. Unfortunately Science FACT is another matter.

All the preparation you’ve done will finally be paying off.
Nice thought. Then again, please note that it never says what it is paying off, so it's question of perspective.
And just how does a fortune cookie look at things anyway?

Those who can endure the most are rewarded the most.
That may be true, but you certainly have to feel sorry for those with a low pain tolerance.

There’s a secret romance blooming! Go for it, in spite your hesitation.
It must REALLY be a secret because nobody's ever bothered to tell me!

Turn your scars into stars.
I'm just going to assume this means overcome adversity because to physically do that would break so many known laws of science...

Three things cannot be long hidden. The sun🌞, the moonπŸŒ•, and the truth.
Granted, cloudy days and nights don't last forever, but there are plenty of politicians and other people who make serious attempts at obscuring the last one!

We make a living by what we get. But we make life by what we give.
This dates back to at least "Do Unto Others...", if not earlier, but you'd think people would have figured this one out by now. πŸ˜•

If you can’t be a pencil to write someone’s happiness, then try to be the eraser to remove their sadness.
Another nice thought. This dates back to at least ♫Think of your fellow man, lend them a helping hand♫, if not earlier, as seen in this classic video. 1969's "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" by Jackie DeShannon.

So on that note♫ try to have a great week everybody.
Take care.
And please be here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies.—lh,jr.
