Re: My dear Joon...

It's ten thirty at night, on the eve of Thanksgiving. Last Sunday, there was a presentation about gratitude. G.K. Chesterton, the 'father' of Father Brown , kept a journal in which he would list what he was thankful for. After years of atheism and an obsessive need to prove his position through endl...

Re: My dear Joon...

Tomorrow's Thanksgiving :D ! I sallied forth this morning to buy turkey dinners, whipped cream, pumpkin pie, extra turkey for sandwiches, and Miracle Whip. We've decided to go to the Bob Evan's up the street for our holiday meal today, and stay home tomorrow. That is being brought to us by those fin...

Re: My dear Joon...

This may be a record. Duane hasn't used the words I'm and insane in the same sentence for five days and counting. Of course, I just may have jinxed it by saying so. We saw Michael on Sunday :) . He was still very much under the weather, and coughing. But it sounded looser and there was none of the o...

The closer we get to Thanksgiving the more I worry about the turkeys that Obama pardoned.

Re: My dear Joon...

Duane threw a tantrum in the Steak 'n Shake . He couldn't remember a word, and that set him off. The girl taking our order didn't bring us menus; we've been going there every week for the past six months and pretty much order the same thing, but that didn't help. He was growling, and screaming :cry:...

Re: My dear Joon...

Good news - Michael's better. Bad - all of his coats are at daycare. *sigh* For cryin' out loud. How, how, how do you let a person like this go out to the bus without the proper outerwear? Nobody sees he's without a coat? Not the busdriver either? It's a school bus, not public transport - you'd thin...

Re: Doctor Who

Yes, I saw those episodes with the Ood. Heartbreaking. Boy, this new season with Matt Smith really has my head spinning. It's confusing, and the balance between silly and serious has moved towards silly at an incredible pace. I don't think there was so much talking during Tennant's tenure, Smith is...

Re: ...‘The Lord of the Rings’ TV Series...

I can't think of anything more boring than Hobbits enjoying their lives, and making a series out of it. I mean, we love the books because they got swept out of their comfort zone, right?

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Aw the poor thing. I can't help but wonder what goes through the minds of these little guys when Timmy catches them. I know they're vermin, but I have had them as pets, so I'm a bit torn :lol: . Speaking of our bosses, Amy covered her doings in the litter box :/ . Not the #2 - that was how I knew sh...

Re: My dear Joon...

We went for the CAT Scan of Duane's wrist, and it went really quick. I dropped him at the door, and parked. The guy who was behind me dropping off his wife, looked annoyed. I can't blame him - I couldn't get Duane out of the car. He kept asking me 'what?' But I was able to read the newspaper and org...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

When she falls asleep, do you just leave her there? My dad used to fall asleep to the tv, and around three, it'd wake me up and I'd tiptoe into his room to turn it off. As soon as he heard the click, he'd open his eyes and growl, "I was watching that!" Ah, parents! Such memories they make...
