What many others see as insanity I scratch my head and I wonder what happened to mudcat's humor. I used to come here and laugh my face off, now with the exception of Spaw we got politics and religion. Now sitting around like an old man complaining about life ain't something I intend to do as I get older. Nice to see that many others don't want that either. But in life there is choices, you can laugh and figure stuff is going to happen, or you can go down the black hole of bitter. Sadly I see too many people becoming old and bitter ... No way to go through the remaining years I think ... bitchin about politics and other people's belief's.   For me, far more fun listening to Spaw go off. If anyone has a just cause for being bitter, he could with all that happened to him. Yet he laughs, calls me on the phone and I laugh .. sad to not see more of it here.

Kat can you close the thread since we did it before

Thanks

I always love it when Art Thieme or Kendall throws out their one liner. They get me chucklin for days ... Live has exactly been warm and fuzzy for either of those two. A good example for me to follow as stuff keeps happening to me.

Dan,
Today is today, what happened yesterday is forgotten. We needs to do it over and over again until we gets it right. It's not the destination, it's the journey that matters.

Folk 'em again, honey!

It ain't folk if can't throw in a "Yee-HAH!" every so often.

EG:

"She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes Yee-HAH!"
"...Mither make my bed early for I fain would lay down Yee-HAH!"
"...All in my desperation I stabbed him in the breast Yee-HAH!"

but not

"Ah! je ris de me voir
si belle en ce miroir,
Ah! je ris de me voir
si belle en ce miroir,
Est-ce toi, Marguerite,
est-ce toi? Yee-HAH!"

or

"La donna è mobile
qual piuma al vento
muta d'accento
e di pensiero Yee-HAH!"
