Cullen you listen up,and listen real good old sot. I have no brother by the name you are so blithely misusing but if I did he would be not one iota more pleased about this charade than the real Allen Hoffman who will be hearing from me this very day. You really should have listened to me pal. I am not trolling your dumb arse on this forum using your name. WAKE UP SLEEPING IDIOT!

And maybe the thread topic does apply to you as well as my brother also named Thomas. You don't come across as very emotionally balanced. If you take prozac I suggest you dose up this morning.

Well I certainly am happy that we are not related. What kind of brother are you anyhow to post crap about your brother for this pack of fools to read. Tell ya something, if you WERE my brother we would no longer be on speaking terms. You should be ashamed.

Oh I need to get my man into this program. Lately he has been so out of it. And I am sure it is alzeimer's mitigated by alcohol.

Clearly this is Cullen projecting out of his own drunkenness. Truth is, due to health issues I never ever imbibe to the point of being stupid drunk like he assuredly does and before lunch no less. Yes, the poor old sot is using my wife's name once again, a favorite habit of his, in some lame attempt to cause me trouble. Sorry to disappoint you, Cullen, the only guy who is getting trouble is you and all of your own making. Maybe time for you to fold up your teepee and go away, perhaps back to Minnetonka, MN?

You know Thomas, you need to look at yourself. And don't think I don't know what you do at home all day when your hard working wife is at work. I know. And I think you have dementia. There are wonderful drugs out there, get to a doctor and find one that works for you. If you have a fmaily and friends, I'm sure they will be glad you did.

You know Cullen you gotta stop using my wife's name, people are going to talk. Besides it's so utterly juvenile and unbelievable to boot like who's spouse, daughter, brother chooses Topix to communicate? Answer is NOBODY'S

Bottom line is everybody who reads this crap knows damn well it's you, Cullen, everybody but you, apparently. I guess you actually believe you are she. LOL

The one with Alzheiner's is usually the last one to know. But their family and friends notice immediately.

Yes, the "tetched" often are the last to know. But like an intervention, the family sure knows. Thomas take your meds and get offline!

Cullen, why do you persist in beating a dead horse. Do you really want me to follow through and call this guy and inform him of your misuse of his good name. This is really pathetic behavior, even bad by your stndards

I wish my dad listened to music instead of being on the internet all day long. Maybe his cobwebs would clear then. Not sure if he is Alzheimer's, but something is wrong up in his noggin that's for sure.

Ah yes, of course it's you, Cullen, once again donning a woman's garb, as if the woman in question would ever post bullshit on Topix about her father. This is such a silly game you play here, Cullen and I have to inform you, my family is as loyal to me as any family that ever existed so you simply expose yourself as an idiot, or, as the French say, bete noire. Do try to drag yourself out of the black pit you've dug for yourself. It's so much more beautiful out here in the warm sunshine than wasting away in the deep dark hole of your mind.
