      Probably the biggest issue with opportunities is their incessant knocking.  There was a time when opportunities were discrete and civil and they would only knock once.  Back in that golden age if you chose not to answer when they did knock then they would quietly go away and bother someone else in some other place or time. 
      Today, however, civility is a thing of the past and they, like every other obnoxious gadabout, insist on constantly interrupting with their knocking at the most inopportune times (like when you were daydreaming, reminiscing about the halcyon days of your youth, enjoying that second tequila sunrise, etc.).
      I’ve written numerous angry letters to the Times about this subject but they, with their progress-at-any-price-anything-to-make-a-buck mindset have refused to give my opinions equal time.  In the world of today opportunities seem to have convinced the current administration that knocking at any time is some kind of right of theirs so the only thing for it would appear to be an iPod set on high volume or a very good pair of ear plugs.

    hbgb b^2,
    Thanks for the photo…just used it in a meeting where we were getting way to serious and way too off track. “Lightened the mood and eased the load”. Bunny may become a regular participant. Hope there’s no copyright.

    Beware of false opportunities that come to you dressed in advantages, but inwardly they are debilitating encumbrances.
    The Fourth Estate has been known to engage and promote such opportunities.

    Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
