WINDRIDER:  No quote to avoid hogging the blogs.


This tale has left me in stitches.  Delightful indeed.  Love it, love it, love it.

Thanks, Lady Di...Ya gotta love Jeff Foxworthy. Think I have every book he's published so far...also Patrick McManus and Robert Flughum. Good stuff to read and bring life into perspective when things aren't going exactly as you'd planned. If you aren't familiar with the last two, introduce yourself to their won't be sorry.


Your new pictures are beautiful. I'm still waiting for my hair to grow out before I get any new ones talken. I asked for a cut where I could just get out of the shower, shake my head and go. Got exactly what I asked for but nothing like I had actually visualized. So much for reality! Bwhahahahahaha...thank God the stuff grows!

A s for you, Curious... your Irish shows in your humor and strength of purpose. I've always been told a 'little' Irish in the blood overpowers everything else anyway, so you might just as well just say you're Irish! Your other ancestors might be a bit put out, but the Irish would be dancin' a jig!
What did I mean by you having your hands full? Seems most of us agree you're the one to get the whip and chair and handle our naughty boy. We know you won't hurt him, will leave in enough bad to keep him doin' what he does so well, and will temper it with enough love so he won't take offense. I've got a little stallion like V. Love him to death but he takes special treatment to keep him grounded and happy.
Hope...20 below last night and spittin' snow. Just thought I'd throw that out there since you were shiverin' in your Santa suit the other night when it was what?...72 warm degrees down your way?

Give Santa a hug for me and tell him my Brats loved their apple treats and extra carrots. Okay, so they talked me into giving things out early...there's still enough for tomorrow. How can I look at those beautiful little faces and tell them no?  

Merry  Christmas everyone, and have a safe and joyful New Year. Don't worry about the Mayan calendar...

Quoting Dakota35:

Worldmind, I think the organization you spoke of in your first paragraph is wonderful and very admirable.  I always say, you can help children and really old people without the worry of getting screwed...and the help is more appreciated.



As for you V, I'm going to let Curious beat you, as she seems to be really good at it.  That woman must have some Irish in her.



Oh, my Dakota.  You've hit the nail on the head.  Blood-wise, I'm only--maybe, not sure--1/4 Irish.  But my upbringing taught me to be proud as hell of being descended from the Irish while giving short-shrift to my Scottish, German and English ancestory.  You can blame that on my father who didn't think much of the last three ethnicities.  And my last name is Irish as Paddy's pig.  


As for "beating" V, I've never felt like I've succeeded at that one iota.  But I'm delighted to see that others think so.  


I do like "V" an awful lot.  But whenever I confront him directly, he fails to respond.  What's up with that?

Is that why it looks like I "beat" him?


As I said, I do like "V" a lot.  It just seems he doesn't like me much because I can never get a direct dialogue going with him.  He always scampers off to another topic.  Hmmmmm.  Maybe I need to Google him and his location and go up there where he is and confront him in person.  [wish I could afford to do so; ten to one we'd have one hell of a weekend.  No romance, mind you--he's much too young for me. just a shouting match that would last for at least 48 hours.]





No doubt he'll make very good use of that lump of coal.

WINDRIDER:  Charming post, but what the heck did you mean by saying that I will have my hands full?

Quoting Iridescence:

Working with children is a real bless, working for children is our duty. Their souls are the most precious jewels in this wild and unruly adult world. They live in a harsh world, stirred with all sorts of problems, but they know how to be strong. Let’s keep their souls genuine and immaculate, and hope they will know how to make from next world a better place to live for future children. Happy Holidays to everyone!

Kind of agree with you, Iridescence.  I'm a politically right-wing nut job for the most part.  But when it comes to children---oy vay.  I'm somewhere off the map, and I don't know where that place is.  Except that children are "innocents" for sure, and it seems to me that when it comes to children in danger, children suffering, we have to find a way to fix that.  I'm just not smart enough or savvy enough to know how.  All prayers, though, for any and every child suffering this day--or any other day--and may saviors come this day to all of them.


Merry Christmas to you, and thanks so much for the post.

Why should this be only a "Holiday Truce"?  I say it should be permanent!

Merry Christmas to you as well!!

(And I merely mentioned to V how he knows I am the one in charge of the sleigh after Santa's 3rd glass of eggnog.... I told him if he wanted something more than a few sacks of coal he had better be nice!)

Well, I have to get ready now!! I have to meet Santa and the reindeer on the beach today! ;)

Merry Christmas, V. I hope the sea breezes blow nothing but health and happiness your way. Someday, when you grow up, you're gonna be one hell of a man, until then...Curious is going to have her hands full. You're all right, my friend, and I'm really, REALLY proud of your stepping to the front and offering a truce. (What did Hope threaten you with anyway?) Since I can't send you a card, I'll leave you with one of my favorite Christmas stories...rather think it will at least make you smile. It was written by Jeff Foxworthy, and goes like this:
"As a joke, my brother used to hang a pair of panty hose over his fireplace before Christmas. He said all he wanted was for Santa to fill them. What they day about Santa checking the list twice must be true because every Christmas morning, although Jay's kids' stockings were overflowed, his poor panty hose hung sadly empty and grew increasingly threadbare.
One year I decided to make his dream come true. I put on sunglasses and a fake beard and went in search of an inflatable love doll. Of course, they don't sell those things at WalMart. I had to go to an adult bookstore downtown. If you've never been in an X rated store, don't go. You'll only confuse yourself. I was there almost three hours saying things like, 'What does this do?' 'You're kidding me!' 'Who owns that?' 'Do you have their phone number?'
Finally, I make it to the inflatable doll section. I wanted to buy a standard, uncomplicated doll for a night of romance that could also substitute as a passenger in my truck so I could use the car pool lane during rush hour. I'm not sure what a complicated doll is. Perhaps one that is subject to wild mood shifts and using a French accent for no reason at all. (That describes a few ex-girlfriends.) Finding what I wanted was difficult. Love dolls come in many different models. The top of the line, according to the side of the box, could do things I'd only seen in a book on animal husbandry. I figured the 'vibro-motor' was a feature Jay could live without, so I settled for Lovable Louise. She was at the bottom of the price scale. To call Louise a 'doll' took a huge leap of imagination.
On Christmas Eve, with the help of an old bicycle pump, Louise came to life.
My sister-in-law was in on the plan and cleverly left the front door key hidden under the mat. In the wee morning hours, long after Santa had come and gone, I snuck into the house and filled the dangling panty hose with Louise's pliant legs and bottom. I also ate some cookies and drank what remained of the glass of milk on a nearby tray. Then I let myself out, went hoome, and giggled for a couple of hours.
The next morning my brother called to say that Santa had been to his house and left a present that made him VERY happy but had left the dog confused. He would bark, start to walk away, then come back and bark some more. I suggested he purchase an inflatable Lassie to set Rover straight.
We also agreed that Louise should remain in her panty hose so the rest of the family could admire her when they came over for the traditional Christmas Dinner. It seemed like a great idea, except that we forgot that Grandma and Grandpa would be there.
My grandmother noticed Louise the moment she walked in the door. 'What the hell is that?' she asked. My brother quickly explained. 'It's a doll'.
'Who would play with something like that?' Granny snapped. I had several candidates in mind, but kept my mouth shut. 'Where are her clothes?' Granny continued. I hadn't seen any in the box, but I kept this information to myself.
'Boy, that turkey sure smells nice, Gran,' Jay said, trying to steer her into the dinning room. But Granny was relentless. 'Why doesn't she have any teeth?'
Again, I could have answered, but why would I? It was Christmas and no one wanted to ride in the back of the ambulance saying, 'Hang on Granny, Hang on!'
My grandfather, a delightful old man with poor eyesight, sidled up to me and said, 'Hay. who's the naked gal by the fireplace?' I told him she was Jay's friend. A few minutes later I noticed Grandpa by the mantel, talking to Louise. Not just talking, but actually flirting. It was then that we realized that this might be Grandpa's last Christmas at home.
The dinner went well. We made the usual talk about who had died, who was dying, and who should be killed, when suddenly Louise made a noise that sounded a lot like my father in the bathroom in the morning. Then she lurched from the panty hose, flew around the room twice, and fell in a heap in front of the sofa.
The cat screamed, I passed cranberry sauce through my nose, and Grandpa ran across the room, fell to his knees, and began administering mouth to mouth resuscitation. My brother wet his pants and Granny threw down her napkin, stomped out of the room and sat in the car. It was indeed a Christmas to treasure and remember.
Later in my bother's garage, we conducted a thorough examination to decide the cause of Louise's collapse. We discovered that Louise had suffered from a hot ember to the back of her right thigh. Fortunately, thanks to a wonder drug called duct tape, we restored her to perfect health. Louise went on to star in several bachelor party movies. I think Grandpa still calls her whenever he can get out of the house."
To ALL...
May your chosen God bless and keep you, and hold you safely within the palm of His hands. It's been a pleasure meeting each and every one of you, and my wish for you is that the New Year brings you health and happiness. Stay warm and be happy, and remember...each day is a gift to be slowly unwrapped and savored.

Quoting Voyager54:

...I was asked by one of our esteemed blogging friends, (Hoping 4 Mugambo), to ponder the possibility of a truce here on the blogs between me and some ...others.

So, because my freind feels stressed from all the drama, I will present myself the bigger person and although I won't apologize for anything I have said because I know in my heart I am right. I am....but, I am willing to call a truce.

I will keep to myself and stay clear of as much drama with the "others" as possible. However, I am not going to roll over and die just because I am told to or asked to.

I'm a warrior by nature. I've been in a couple of war zones and hot spots in the world during my life. So having a pissing match on a site like this is hardly an excercise in pugilistic behaviour. I realise there are some dainty types here and therefore I will TRY to be more compassionate in understanding thier creative thoughts.

It's almost 12-21-12 ... assuming that we're all here on 12-22-12, I  will offer up a Happy Happy whatever. I'll be out to sea, perhaps down to Key Largo and then over to the Bahamas, just me and Rogue and a bottle of rum, a pirates life for me.

For the rest of you...fruit cake,processed turkey,skim milk and in-laws. At least y'all have some family for a couple of days.

And if for some reason the Mayans were right and none of us make it past tomorrow, just remember's dark, it's quiet and you'll never know anything else.

Oh, V, what have you done.  Avoided another banning.


Very kind of you to call this truce, but, really, don't tone yourself down TOO much.  After all, we need the stimulation!!!


Oh, and first, happy End of the World Day.  LOL   I read an article in the Smithsonian today that says the Mayan Calendar NEVER EVER said the 21st was the end of the world; it said it was the beginning of a new era.  But somehow, "the end" got glommed onto by one gungho journalist and spread around virally, and so here we all are, either having worried about it, or having laughed it off as pure hokum. 


And neither group was totally correct, it seems.  As far as I could glean from the article, the human race has another 7000 years to go.  What's supposed to happen then I have no idea.  Perhaps a new evolution of homo sapiens into something more sophisticated.   


Have a marvelous time at sea, V.  Bring back coconuts, please!!!

Really cool Santa phohto, Hope.  Though Santa does look a trifle "perv."

The "Dainty Princess" is so very, very proud of you!!



I must admit this is the most unusual "TRUCE" I have ever heard! LOVE IT!!


You always have your own "UNIQUE" spin on things... I RESPECT that about you..... ;)


People like you make life more interesting! That's one of the things I adore most about you! 


Now, I am "Hoping" the word mugambo I had to look up was in reference to "passion" and not "nasty sex!" LOL... I'm not seeking nasty sex people... That's just an added bonus! ;)


MERRY CHRISTMAS VOYAGER! I know you don't hold the same belief in Jesus as I do, but I wish you the best life has to offer! Now fire up that boat, I need to come home and take a VOYAGE!!


PS.. I always thought your profile name referred to water, not Dr. Spock or alien beings! LOL


MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! May we all have wonderful remaining days in 2012!!


I traded in my elf suit and Santa is making me deliver toys in his "get up!"


I made 5 of them from his one suit!  


PSS.... I think being raised a JW has confused me for the holidays.... This was actually Halloween 2012! HA!

Posted on Dec 20, 2012 at 11:32 PM is already 21/12 08:30 where I am and life is wonderful, busy with planning for a meeting to one of my(non-religious, non-political) organizations  I have founded who is going to give Holiday spirit to shattered families because of abuse, families who does not have a home, children who does not have Christmas gifts shining under their tree as they have no means, homeless who have no shelter in this minus degrees coldness up in this North...or other sad stuff that happens in life for many in this yeah, still I did state on my kissing mama Goodbye blog just some minutes after the Cinderella hour.




You know very well in your deepest that I am all about peace, hence I created my MM Peace I found the environment becoming sad..and you know I have been on your side all the time..but then..I did lose respect for you and I found it sad that you didnt even reflect on that instantly, how a person like me finally lost respect for you...and felt the urge to actually once and for all address your claimings etc.


I have said it all the time, I respect whatever belief you have, you can tell me about it etc..but I find it sad when I see insults and bashings etc.


You are "calling truce" in this blog, and stating it is because your firend asked you too...I think you need to FEEL this in your deepest heart yourself regardless of anyone else...and furthermore...I have asked you long back and I thought I was, if not your friend, then at least a future the same time you say you do not apologize. I wrote you on your blog yesterday about words leaving scars in people and asked you to reconsider your behaviour etc...and I think calling a truce would feel more real if you really meant and felt it yourself, and that includes apologizing for insulting people as you have least this is MY opinion...and i find your step into this good start, and hope for the fully committed one.


I have said it many times, it is not about religion to me, its about respecting other peoples beliefsystem and offcourse questioning it is alright, but in a non-insulting manner and if one cannot, then just leave it we agree, that this is NOT a religious site, but it is a site with free speech..and foremost respect. We are here on a dating site, and the first step into any relationship is the stepstone of respect and honor.


Just think about it.
