the irony there is that years ago when LASIK surgery was just coming out, I said the same thing but the opposite, no one's messing with my eyes, I'll take the hearing surgery ...... years later I needed the hearing surgery anyway. And with age the contacts had to make way for glasses. Yes, lack of hearing can be very isolating.
yeah ive wondered about the lasik surgery myself, but i know several people who've had it done and they are fine. but for me, ive never been a brave soul and besides at this point in life im beginning to choose wearing my glasses over the contacts since i figure it helps hide some of those wrinkles. lol

<quoted text>Roosevelt (FD) once commented that Churchill was a man who could have 400 ideas in a day, four of them good ones! But than how many of us can have one good idea in a day? Unfortunately, some of his bad ones were carried through - Tonypandy miners' strike, Dardenelles, return to the gold standard (1925, when he was Cahncellor of the Exchequer). In some ways, he was a poor peacetime politican, in the 1930s he was in the political wilderness. It was almost Lord Halifax who succeeeded Neville Chamberlain in 1940, he turned it down as he felt a PM should sit in the Commons, not the Lords and there was no mechanism to give up his peerage in those days.
I gather that when the 'chips were down' and the time was critical some rose and inspired people. When the moment was gone so was their "usefulness".

<quoted text>I'm sorry Quincy...I badly phrased my question. I wouldn't dream
of asking such as that. I was meaning....has any of the love of
horses been passed down? I am always thinking along the lines of 'it's in the genes'...lol.
Interesting to learn of your in-laws achievements non-the-less.

I believe you have an anniversary today....

Happy Anniversary to you and your husband, hope you have a brilliant day.
Thank you. Actually the anniversary is next Saturday. I confused things when I spoke of next week and the American Thanksgiving.

While none in my husband's have a passion for horses, an uncle and cousin on my mom's side do. Uncle actually gave her horse when she was in her 20s or 30s. Lot of work and expense. She's most fond of Arabians, reads a lot and catches all the big races. The horse she had was not an Arabian.

Not to complicate, this was mom's sister ---- her husband (my uncle) had a nephew who boarded and trained them. My aunt & uncle had 1 daughter and in her adulthood my uncle bought her a horse which she boarded on her cousin's farm. Beautiful animals.

Wishing you the best of days and sending my love xoxoxox

Always a silver lining. If it aint broke don't fix it. Some things we can get by without surgery - like you say the glasses are enough. I had been wearing hearing aids for over 10 years by the time the doc said the implant was necessary. If I hadn't had the surgery, in 6 months I would have been completely deaf anyway.

Absolutely - even before the war against Japan was over, which was one of the great disappointments of his life. He did return in the 1951 election, but he had aged considerably by then and handed over to Anthony Eden in 1955. Wonder if he would have made the same cock up over Suez that Eden made - I'd like to think not.

Juicy there is a double agent working for both Jax and Clay, doesn't Jax get that? And won't Clay get suspicious if Gemma now all of the sudden feigns interest? He may be a conniving slimeball, but he's a smart conniving slimeball.
true dat! When Clay grab Gemma's face to kiss her I though she was going to throw up, LOL ... I know I would have, LOLOL ... j/k ... well, no not really j/k but you know what I mean ... he's so mean and conniving like you say ... he's out to ruin Jax and the club and that makes me mad ... but I get all riled up and my friends say, "FC ... it's just a show!" hahaaha ...{{{{{JAX!}}}} haha ...

Hi FC - should point out that is in soccer - in rugby if a player gets a yellow card, he spends 10 mins in the "sin bin" - i.e. off the field. In both sports, a red card means you leave the filed for the rest of the game and may face later disciplinary measures from the sport's governing body, depending on the offence.
Hi Tony! Good afternoon to you! Oh, so your rugby is what we call our football? What do you mean in "BOTH" sports? rugby and soccer? oh, okay ... I think I get it ... do they have "instant replay" to better determine if the call is made correctly by the judging officials in order to make the call and therefore drop the yellow or red card? Very interesting ... thanks for pointing that out ... Appreciated ... Enjoy the rest of your day, Tony! FC <3 ...

Good morning, Lady El ... and a good morning it is ... nice cool crisp Saturday morning with the thermometer at 50 degrees having been 38 overnight ... warming up to approximately 67 ... a beautiful day ... getting ready to suit up and head to town as I hear the gym calling my name ... at 1600 hours going to meet one of my friends at her church for their yearly Thanksgiving dinner ... she asks me every year so I usually cave-in and go with her ... he daughter won't go with her so it's all good ... it's usually a nice gathering ... We had our Commnity T-gathering on Thursday ... I went early for the prep work and some of the serving but was able to leave early and didn't have to do the clean up ... I don't like to do the clean up part is why I volunteer for the prep work ... I really don't know which is better, lol ... It should otherwise be a beautiful day ... hope the same for you, P and the kittens ... Have a nice day! Luvya big! FC <3 ...
