Thank You ... and you are almost too funny, in a naked beast sort of way.

Well,... I know why we run. When we are new, we don't know the rules yet, others wonder, believe and start accusing us of being a sock of an old time poster and then they get paranoid in certain cases and accuse us of being ... alllllll that. DANG !

I came in as gray Trish and listened for a month or better to those wondering why I wasn't registered,.. yet I managed to fit in as well as I did.

I'm a traveler and if we don't learn how to fit in, it get's to be quite a sad and lonely existence on this journey. Ahhh, I'm speaking RW as opposed to this game out here. Haha

Are ya'll excited for the Superbowl Countdown? I am, but I'll admit,... I've not one clue yet where I'll spend it. I do know it will require an overnight bag.

Hope you all have a great weekend and stay safe out there. This is a dangerous holiday and we should already know that after 46 years.

Everybody is welcome. Some people can't help themselves putting pictures on posts. It goes back to their childhood or something.

Thanks, guys.
She did say taking care of bro put a major strain on her body.
Not even a year ago she had major neck surgery (reconstructed) and some months ago, an 8 hour surgery to basically rotor-root her, as she was riddled with blood clots.

I do think she needs to move more. She's sedentary and blames it on the medical issues, but I think some of the issues are because she never works out, is overweight, and lays around a lot.
It's a vicious cycle...

Off to see her now so I can get back home before it's too dark.

Hi folks. I was reading Annie's mailbox a few minutes ago and the first letter in particular just somehow struck me. I'd like to get your perspective on it. I don't think this column is usually posted on Topix but you might enjoy it. There doesn't seem to be a blue line for a link here but I copied the first line, put it on my address line and the topix discussion did come up.

Will anyone be offended if I offer up some prayers on your journey and wish the best and perhaps better than you may even dare to imagine.

We all have our crosses to bear, even if we don't believe in that particular word.

Hope you all have a good weekend. I'm off to the SuperBowl/Birthday part. I'm embarrassed to admit (as childish as I may appear) that I four years (I believe) older than the Superbowl event.

:O

Yep, I was born in the USA a long long long time ago. Haha

Peace Out for the time being. Thank you for your welcomes. You don't know how appreciate most all others feel with that simple step beyond the norm.

Sorry to hear about your mom. Does it sound like something the docs can get under control?

You will find that some of us are religious, some are more spiritual, some are kind of introspective, others decidedly atheistic, and there might be one or two who waffle back and forth.

I don't think anyone here is going to berate you for being a kind person, and if they do, this is the internet, you never have to see them in person so just ignore them :)

Lurkers are always welcome. You probably noticed that we suffered a significant loss lately; things are a bit subdued and feelings are a bit raw- nothing to do with you.

The Regs thread is a general meeting place. Someone posts Amy (Ask Amy) and Abby (Dear Abby) each day. A number of discussions start from those links.

Prayers are usually welcome, but there are a few people who come around on a regular basis who prefer the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM), Pastafarianism. Just a heads up.

I think. She's on 2 strong antibiotics and looks and sounds much better.
I just got home from seeing her.
They have her on morphine so that might be helping her attitude, lol.
She got a chest x-ray tonight so we shall see....

As a Christian, I lways welcome prayers.
But zealous proselytizing is a turn-off to almost all of us. ;)

1. My first job was working in an Orange Juice factory, but I got canned. I couldn't concentrate.

2. Then I worked in the woods as a Lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.

3. After that, I tried to be a Tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it - mainly because it was a sew-sew job.

4. Next, I tried working in a Muffler Factory, but that was too exhausting.

5. Then, I tried to be a Chef - figured it would add a little spice to my life, but I just didn't have the thyme.

6. I attempted to be a Deli Worker, but any way I sliced it I couldn't cut the mustard.

7. My best job was a Musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.

8. I studied a long time to become a Doctor, but I didn't have any patience.

9. Next, was a job in a Shoe Factory. I tried but I just didn't fit in.

10. I became a Professional Fisherman, but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income.

11. I managed to get a good job working for a Pool Maintenance Company, but the work was just too draining.

12. So then I got a job in a Workout Center, but they said I wasn't fit for the job.

13. After many years of trying to find steady work, I finally got a job as a Historian - until I realized there was no future in it.

14. My last job was working in Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.

I'm here, dog!

I'm hung over from tending to a sick little girl most of the weekend. Soooooooooooo needy, she wouldn't let me leave her side for more than 5 minutes.

We did manage to get our sledding in before the onslaught of gross bodily functions, however. I even slogged my way up a few times and didn't bust my butt on the way down!

And both girls made it down the bunny hill on a snowboard. I was very proud.
