It ain't over till the fat lady sings!

This Vintage 1950s Photo was taken by photographer Allan J. Delay. I feature a lot of his collection on my ebay store. For some reason, I have really begun to like 1950s Black & White photos...and am on the search for more!

Today I realized that with life its not over until the fat lady sings! Sometimes we cant see how everything will work out, or how all the little pieces will come together.
LIFE is still happening to us, and we can't always see the larger picture....

The phrase "It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings" is a proverb essentially meaning that one should not assume the outcome of some activity (frequently a sports game) until it has actually finished.

Case in point the Boston Celtics vs. the favored Chicago Bulls.
After many overtimes & a lengthy few games, the Celtics eventually won out against the Bulls.
Too bad. I was really hoping the Bulls would win..

I saw that game also. Heh don't feel bad after hoping the Phoenix suns would make the playoffs this year they fell apart at the seams. That game was exciting and I too wanted the Bulls to win. I love that photo of the lady singing. She has poise and grace and confidence for 10! thanks for sharing it!
