was wondering if you heard about the homeless fellow
in Dublin in the news recently.
He has a pet bunny rabbit, and, I believe, a little dog.
He was minding his own business when an 18 yr old man
came along, snatched his bunny rabbit and flung it into
the River Liffey.
The Homeless Man looked down at his little pet swimming
around in circles in the freezing waters, and without
any hesitation at all, jumped in to rescue his little friend.
The bunny died in his arms at one point, but was revived thanfully.
A very brave man and God protect him (and his pets) in
this cold snap.
Not everything finds its way across the pond so I would not have heard, but I am glad for a hopefully 'happy' ending for the man and his pet. There is a man in Chicago who always has his dog with him -- German Shepard -- lays in a blanket. They are always together - companions.

Can I remind you of past posts where I expressed a wish to travel to Chicago one day, and you and I
meet up, visit those gardens?

Does that sound like I don't want to meet you, or indeed, any other friends should the opportunity arise.

I almost met Denny and his wife, I have family close to where he was visiting, and was prepared to 'kill two birds'...travel down to meet them, unfortunately his wife was not up to making that journey.

I have met up with one friend here, he and his wife came to our home. Very nice people indeed.

So, my point being, I had no desire to upset you or anyone else. Okay?...:)

Nothing odd about YOU Grace, or peculiar, you are one of
the most kind hearted, knowledgeable, and caring souls I
have ever met, be it cyber or not. I value your friendship
enormously, and if the truth be known, am quite happy as
things are.
Don't often say it, but Love You...
El,
I was really 'blown away' by this post,
never expected such a wonderful expression
'THANK YOU' so very much.

It is wonderful too..
and one of the secrets of
EL's kitchen... that we are all such different
characters here, just like a jigsaw puzzle,
where ALL the pieces are needed & important ..

AND
the great picture * only *shows *

when ALL the pieces fit!

As FC said, some of have all but abandoned other threads for the Kitchen. Must be the folks who come here. It's definitely the folks who come here!
LONG LIVE EL's KITCHEN!
(my apologies to anyone who consider the caps yelling. I was not yelling. It was heartfelt enthusiasm)
TRUE..

Once upon a time
DIRTY NELLY'S thread
was very popular and had the most posts of
any other thread here.. on Offbeat.
Suddenly, one day, it was taken away suddenly
and without warning.

Some say, troll action
[which was rife at the time] lay behind it..

I don't know but it's history now anyway..
but no matter, it's gone now..
a poor imitation in it's place by
name> 'Dirty Nellie's'
where we post occasionally, but..
it reminds me [lol] of an ole log fire which
needs constant poking & attention if you
don't keep coaxing it along LOL!
it'll go out again!

but EL'S KITCHEN needs no such!!! it is burning brightly all
the time..
far above and beyond *Nellie's*
[and most other threads]
but, that's life..
and, as the saying goes,
it's a good man [woman in this case]
can take being beaten lol!

It's all good my friend. Until fate can bring us together physically in one place, we can email, snail mail and live vicariously through each others adventures and day to day lives.

Good morning/afternoon to all!
My itouch is so old...
How old is it? Old enough that it can't take a Topix upgrade. Something about downloading an app that I can't get to!

I do hope everyone is having a great day! My new avatar needs to be tweaked. The sideways photo of Simba kitty does him no justice.

Happeeeeeee Thursday, Grace, El, Quinn, Tony, Franko... etc etc. I came to read and wish all well like I do on occasion, and sad to see that there is another rift starting between El and Grace. I have a lot of serious issues happening at the present time, and I hope that the two of you can rise above yet another argument brewing. I think the world of you both, and I have a lot of people's phone numbers, and dont call for one reason or another. That does not mean I dont love a lot of you, it does not take anything away from the fact that we have been posting for years. I think it is a delightful idea if you meet one another, and never had a reservation that Grace would be included in the equation. This is a new year, and I hope that you will see your way clear to realize that this is one battle not even worth fighting over. Now why cant you call one another right now, say hello, laugh, and shake hands.

Then lets come up with new information instead of contouring to rehash the same stuff. It's gotten old to me.
The US never should have allowed law enforcement & military weapons on the street --- but the horse is out of the barn and the gun lobby & manufacturers won.'Bad guys' were not using these types of guns decades ago.
Lets start talking about help for the mentally ill, the crap people let their kids & listen to --- I don't give a hoot about Marilyn Manson but when a messed up kid listens to it it's the makings if a disaster.
And yes, let's do stronger background checks especially at gun shows and I don't care how polite the patrons are. Where do you think those with questionable backgrounds can buy the guns?
.........shall I continue?
Quinn if you are speaking of rifles there are no current military weapons on the street. They just look alike but don't work alike. Military is full auto!

Not even a semi-automatic M1911A1? How about a semi-automatic M-11? Or how about a semi-automatic Mk 25? Then there is always the semi-automatic Kimber Custom. But then there is the semi-automatic .40 S&W.

Not ALL military weapons are FULL auto Crain.

I meant it quite sincerely Grace. Although it isn't
our way to be so outgoing, lol, sometimes it is
important to let someone know what they mean to me.
Let me say you put it perfectly about the difference
in characters amongst we the group who congregate here
in the kitchen...I couldn't be happier with the grand bunch
of folk who come here...
call it an extension of Dirty Nelly's, one disappeared sadly
but may this one live for a long time to come.

Fully automatic weapons have been banned.
A special permit still allows ownership-
but a permit will not be given for purchase.

However, the purchase of 'parts' to make your
semi-automatic a (full automatic can still be purchased)- most have *button or lever* switches.
Don't get caught at a gun show doing it!!!!

So if I do manage to come to Ohio one day, hope your son will
accomodate me in a game of Frisbee! He should know, I am no
pushover...I can throw a mean frisbee!

Boomer, Brighteyes, thanks for sharing. And your Simba kitty is adorable.
Beautifully marked, and a lovely expression.

You notice I said current as in modern and was speaking about rifles. No military uses a semi only as there basic rifle.

Vee...

as always, wonderful to see you here..although extremely concerned to
hear you have some serious issues, hope those are soon resolved.
Grace and I have talked it over....I think all is well between us once more. After all this time it would be devastating to think not.
Maybe we will meet each other one of these days, but at the moment, fine
as things are...of course this is just my word, hopefully Grace feels the same.
Don't think that your concern is not appreciated my friend.
As is mine for you....here for you if I can help.

John Browning even made a lever action into a full auto :)

Very well put El,
and yes, I too agree with that sentiment..
and feel the same,
as you say, after all this time it says a lot that
we.. us three .. You El, Vee and myself are chatting away
now in this post..

Like you, El,
I too hope Vee's issues can be resolved..
she knows I care too.
these are difficult times and no mistake.

Just now it is quiet, as I post.. a big fire,
sleet outside..the wind is up and I can hear Ali lightly snoring!

Peace is here.
