I'm back, but don't worry, I'm fairly armless...
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - open throttle in the other -
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming : "Woo Hoo, what
a ride!"

No arm wrestling for a win then, DC? Are you involved in the Tangled Branch?

Armless? Or harmless?

Armless. Well one at least...

We used to go on a yearly camping trip with my husband's two brothers and their families, usually by a lake or the beach. My brother-in-law lost his leg in a car accident when he was a teenager so when we went swimming, he had several curious kids around him asking why he didn't have one of his legs.


He regaled the kids with all kinds of outlandish stories. He told one kid a shark ate it, another that he lost it wrestling a bear, and another that he lost it in a game of Poker. It was comical because he could draw out a story in such detail. I imagine these kids going home to tell their parents and wonder what, if any embellishments they would add.

My son worked at an ocean front restaurant/bar and some adult did not understand tides. Joe wove a story about mutant sponges sopping up all the water that went on for about ten minutes. The man thanked him for the information and left a big tip. All the tables around this also left big tips for the sheer entertainment of my son's story telling. We always just thought he was a liar.

Funny how that works, Patti. I would have loved to have been there to hear and see that play out.

My son had a breathing tube when she was 7 weeks old.  He went through two, and three surgeries a year, for many years.  He made new friends in the hospital, only to go back to the hospital, and find out his friends had not survived. The faith he has over 40 years later... is not based on other peoples' beliefs. I am proud of my son, and all my children. They ,even after some sad times in their lives, grew up to be unselfish, caring human beings.

A Mocking Bird lives in a tree in our backyard.  Since we began moving in here I noticed that he begins his calls around 12:00 AM without fail. He carries on all night. I love it.

Stepping up for a moment to watch my font go freaky. Are you guys EVER going to fix this site?

Apparently not. Why else has everyone else gone? Oh, wait. I think I know the answer to that.
