I agree and some just want to argue. Lynne has written lovely tributes when the BPT Firemen died.We all respect the job the men and women in blue do to risk their lives for others.

Take your self-righteous rherotic and stuff it. I've got more sympathy in my little finger than you have in your entire body for their losses. But just because I made a joke about pipers means I can't "at least show enough decency" to you, huh? I have many times expressed condolences and sympathies to families who have lost loved ones in the line of duty. Just because I didn't do it today, I'm a bad person? One of my neighbors just happens to be a firefighter AND a piper, and he LOVED my joke, I've heard him repeat it to others! If anything ever happened to him I'd be devestated! So if the only exercise you're getting these days is jumping to conclusions (that are wrong, I might add), you might want to give it a rest.
I read what was posted and in no way, shape or form did the guy refer to you and your joke. I read all the stupid posts written before his and can't see why you took it so personally. Then you bust his balls about misspelling, how about you, you misspelled devastated. How is it he's ignorant and you aren't? Maybe you posted nice things in the past but had a change of attitude when you posted here.

Also, your spelling hasn't improved much. YOU'RE one hell of an ignorant man.
Nothing like adding a little insult to injury, you don't know when to call it quits.

Ms. LynneB: we were just looking at this after a brother called it to our attention. I decided to write, maybe you'll like me better as I am a woman, and my spelling might meet your rigid requirements. I don't know who you are ASSuming this person is, but you are trying to make him out to be someone he's not, and you are pretty condescending and sarcastic about it. His spelling might not be perfect, but his bravery surpasses that little imperfection. This is a man who goes back into a burning home to rescue a child's dog, but all you see is a couple of spelling errors. As far as the only exercise he gets, when was the last time you put out a raging fire in 90-plus heat? Do you know how it feels to see a brother and friend for years carried out of a fire dead? Did you stand at full attention watching their bodies put on their engine for the last time? To begin with, you jumped all over his case when he posted, yet not one word he said singled you out, so you are the one getting exercise by jumping to conclusions defending yourself. You really need to learn how to be a kinder gentler soul. Pardon my run-on sentences if they offend you.I've spoken my piece, so don't worry, I won't be coming back on here with a reply if you are going to respond. You just aren't worth it.
Bless you sister, excellent, real class.

I agree with Ava. It is bedtime for Tippy and her fish and myself, and to all, a good night.

Gee, whenever Phyllis is taken to task you always jump in to defend her, why isn't she doing the same for you?
Because it's all about her, and because she's busy using pay sites that give out people's personal information.
