Hi Patricia.

Thanks for the big smile and chuckle Felaine.  

I've not heard it before either.  Of course, 50 years in a repressive religion keeps one from hearing too many jokes like that.

This is not an atheist joke, so I'm posting it here...the friend who sent it to me said it was an oldie, so I must have led a semi-sheltered life:

 A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with four young mothers and their small children. "You all have obsessions," he observed.

 To the first mother, Mary, he said, "You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy."
 He turned to the second Mom, Ann: "Your obsession is with money. Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny."
 He turned to the third Mom, Joyce: "Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your child's name, Brandy."

 At this point, the fourth mother, Kathy , quietly got up, took her little boy by the hand, and whispered,"Come on, Dick, this guy has no idea what he's talking about. Let's pick up Peter and Willy from school and go get dinner."

Good to hear of you, Joan! And I'm afraid the bloodsuckers are a lot bigger than little, Grinning Cat! Some people would say I'm a complot-thinker, but I feel more and more that politics is just a play to make us believe that democracy still exists.

Comment by Grinning Cat on April 19, 2015 at 6:07am

Joan, I'm glad you're better!!

My favorite pseudoetymology applies more than ever:

"politics", from "poly-", many + "ticks", little bloodsuckers.

Finally figured out how to post here! My blocked bowel finally released today to a gusher of three liters of crud by way of a nasal tube! Not an experience I want ever again and profoundly hope non of you get the challenge
Chris, so sorry to learn of your my grain. And stress! I wish you could do your wonderful work without the stress!
Gee the group is quiet!
I have my tail in a knot about politics and. With all the nonsense in the USA! I will leave here in strong form, doing my exercises to stay fit,
Love to each one of you dear friends

I'm glad you're lucky with that!

I can be boring too, but I'm trying not to. I still hope someone in Carl's family will remember to post an update - I'm worrying too.

It's a strange community here in internet - we're dependent on electricity and each other's possibility to write a message - it's easy to lose each other.

I could avoid migraines but to do that I must lead a wishy-washy life without responsibility or stress - so it's impossible.

Hi Patricia! How are you?  I'm here, with my first and last cup of coffee of the day. Too busy, this week - work, work, work, migraine, more work to make up for a lost day, yesterday to b-i-l to help. The dictionary says we're informal care providers - isn't there a shorter name?

I know Randall is on his way to the Danube, and Joan in hospital, but where are the others?

He's lovely!
