    Has anyone come up with some creative ways of meeting anyone this spring/summer, aside from internet dating...lol!! Knowone is knocking at my door, nor have they thrown themselves across my windshield...so on to plan B ROLMAO!!

    I read once that laundry mats are a good place to meet men...can you imagine?? "here let me help you with that you sweet thing", "don't you know you shouldn't mix whites with colors, if you want pink undies, ya can have mine?" ,"what not enough change, I can help ya out", "I think my negligee got mixed in with your jockey shorts".

    Or a gym, as we are perspiring, wearing headphones, and near dying from heart failure. "I'm sorry I didn't catch that, come again, huh, whaddayasay" "Your looking pretty strained, but don't worry, I know CPR" "Oh, was that your sweat splashing over here, don't worry I shower after workouts, wanna join me?" " What's that you said, you ran outa deodorant this morning, nah, they were just emptying the trash cans?"

    Anyone have some brilliant strategies...lol??



    LMAO, Cindy!!

    Hmmmm ... the local AA meetings?

    Uhmmmm.... how about a medical convention? Call up one of the big hotels in the area and ask what kind of conventions are going on.

    What else? The grocery store is supposed to be a great place. Hang out in the Grey Poupon aisle!

    How about the golf course? Lots of old geezers, I mean distinguished gentlemen, at the golf courses! LOL (I'd be there myself if I had someone patient enough to teach me how to play!!!)

    Gem


    LOL Gem,
    whats a girl to do?? Now i haven't considered AA meetings..but by George, I can see the endless possibilities LOL!! Just think of how much further a great bottle of wine would go when You needn't share ;)).


    Oh, absolutely! Share??? HA!!! Drink the whole bottle!

    Where else ....??? Hmmmmmmmm .....

    Have you tried the unemployment office? I'm sure there are plenty of men who need a good woman there!

    I'm considering volunteering at the golf course this summer. (I can drive a cart!) Or the yacht club! (Don't know what I could do there. lol) Or the baseball field (bat girl?)! Or ...

    LMAO!!!


    O.k Gem, although a bit risque, it would surely catch some kind of attention:

    Yacht club: You could hang out holding up a sign" first mate seeks captain. Can ride the waves" or "feeling unmoored?, let me be your anchor" or "Guaranteed to rock your boat!". Be sure to wear your bikini ;)).

    Golf course: You could rent a cart and advertise (for two actual services).
    Ball washer: will wash your balls, bring em here!
    Ball retriever" Dont know where to find 'em? Let me find 'em for ya! If the idea of running around looking for and washing golf balls isn't appealing...
    Perhaps " women with low handicap seeking position as caddy for gentlemen with no handicap(s)!"

    Baseball field: You could sit in the stand or stand in the outfield with a sign, " Wanna score a home run?" or " I know how to bring 'em home!" or "Love playing the field" or " will bring you home!!!"


    LMAO, Cindy!!!

    How "romantic" those suggestions are!



    Sorry Gem, my mind sometimes wanders to the gutters, I'll have to dig myself outa this one. HMMM how to redeem oneself??...LMAO

    In order to be a professional ball washer you will need to serve an apprenticeship. I am willing to make the sacrifice and let you wash mine. Luckily I have a three pack so if you lose one I can still play 18 even if I lose another on the course.

    lmao...One bottle might go farther but you'd have to bring more than one to bear listening to those in step 4 or higher in the program! I'd probably end up offering them some just to shut them up!

    gem, golfers are not only old geezers - there's a broad age range, young to old and everything in between. Fun to flirt with the young ones, fun to hang at the 19th hole with some of the older ones and fun way to get to know all those in-betweeners throughout the course. Suggestion: Invest in the six lessons rather than having a friend teach you. You're right about the patience and plus they're likely to teach you their bad habits. If it's someone you want standing reaaalllll close behind you, however, that is a different story!

    well i heard a couple of years ago, someone had stated that AA is a good place to meet people. LOL. i had a friend that was in AA and he said that it pissed the AA members off, as that is not what they are there for. It didnt sound like a great idea to me, but thats all ive got.

    lmao, bnb!
    NO LAUNDRY MAT! I not only can imagine what you described but have experienced similar...YIKES!

    NO GYM EITHER! Lived that too....frankly, the guy trailing around me trying to pick me up in the situation as you so perfectly described, makes me make facial expressions that must tell them, 'you've got to be joking or insane, right?"

    Boating season is coming....Love the water, lotsa men out there, but that doesn't seem to work well for me. Let's see, there's about a thousand 32 and under barbie dolls out there (I want to know how their hair says kempt and make-up perfect - or why they're even wearing it!) and me 48, body a work of art in progress, freckles in full bloom, hair as curly as Shirley Temple...hmm...Those men who say the like the natural look are lying!!

    So this summer I'm going to golf more.
    Outdoors, friendly people, lotsa men and frankly few women. My son and I go or my sis and I go. Occassional four-some with either the "girls" or with me/my son, sis, her son or a brother. Men seem to find it pleasantly surprising to see those situations and they're usually nice men too. All you need is about 6-session lesson, bnb and you'll be ready to go. And it's fun too!

    NYC for the Irish celebration...WOW! Probably the nearest competitors for best in states is Boston and Chicago.
    But the Detroit area does have quite a bit of Irish, in fact there is an area of Detroit that's very Irish and always the hub of life for the day and yes the next morning. "Choir practice" as it's known at some places....


    But NOOOOOOOO. How about good ole Savannah Georgia? We dye our river green too! I would venture to guess we would have a larger percentage of drunks (j.k.) tourist. I have done St. Pats in Chicago and Savannah. I personally enjoyed Sav.

    Ironic though my ancestors moved from Dublin Ireland to Dublin Georgia back in 1868.

    So in good form I started celebrating St Pats day in Tybee Island (outside Savannah) last weekend in their parade.
    I invite you to come check out some pics and post your own in the thread:

    Nice to hear from you, Devo...And a happy (belated) St. Patty's day, fellow Irishman!
    I have never been to Savannah, but hear it is a beautiful and interesting place. My mind wanders to scenes from, oh what movie was that?????? All I can remember was a) the drama b) how beautiful the area was.

    I found this from springtime 2001... LOL

    Internet Dating Sonnet

    'Tis a very strange game we play,
    dating people we've met on the internet,
    meeting people so close yet so far away,
    don't you wish that this was an even bet.

    The males they all write & the women they read
    trying our best to gain their interest
    hoping to plant words of relationship seed
    not really knowing how to write at our best.

    The women read and replied or deleted
    Holding such power but with what controls?
    How to be certain was it there or needed
    Should they begin or remain distant souls.

    I guess we'll not know unless they write,
    'Till then boys, let's just go party tonight. :o)

    Thanks bnb and you too, Rob.
    That was a Sunday morning quickie! lol..
    Of course, re-reading it now, i want to edit the crap out of it! Thanks for the inspiration from both of you. It's been quite a while since I've been inspired to write poetry.

    And Rob, you certainly aren't giving yourself much credit. Thoughtful expression from the heart is rarely a bad read.

    Hey, bnb, what St Padddy's day like up there? I need to start my warm up....(smile)...I better go get something right now! And practice singing, .....when Irish eyes are smilin'.......


    Some local Irish pubs are opening up at 0800, closing 0800 the following morning. so far, my plans are to take the train to NYC for the st. paddy's day parade there (the largest and craziest parade in NYC), do some pub hopping and the next morning, some local places are having "Hangover parties"...So far I have about 6 people going...what about where u are?? Any plans??

    Rob,
    I'm thinking in monosyllables today (if that's possible) but what a beautiful and heartfelt poem. Thank you for sharing it! Yes, the questons of a thousand dreams....we all have them. Mine are simple this morning...why did I drink so many coronas last night, how many did I have??...lol. Nothing like a little alcohol to simplify the mind....


    Not quite as elloquent as those of you ladies. But then again, women are the finest of communicators. They say that men have bigger hemispheres, but women have more connective tissue in between. You gals post more for us simple men, we can't get the words back out, but we can ponder them pretty hard!!! :o)

    A little trick I learned back in college. I read that one of the chemicals that is in real asprin, (not all the ones since), helps the body metabolize alcohol more cleanly. Take a several of those and a big glass of water, and it does wonders for helping enjoy the sunshine of the new day!

    Simply beautiful, Cindy and Rob, yours truly heartfelt. And so you have inspired me....

    Awakening Time

    Resurrection from that which was dormant
    Re-birth, renewal, driven by the urge to pronounce your beautiful existence.
    Open the door. Stand outside.
    Let the wind, rain and sun come into your soul to nurture
    your blossoming, your coming out,
    leaving what was lifeless and dark behind
    And with youthful hope, open the eye of your heart.
    For during this time of clarity,
    it will see the magnificence within,
    the splendor in others
    and re-ignite the will
    to thrive and soar.

    Does Romance Pollen cause allergies and are they contageous??? :o)

    What is it about the spring,
    that makes the words just rhyme?
    I don't know where they're coming from,
    but they etch across my mind.

    I seek the one who knows my heart
    and will never let it go.
    She'll cherish it and nurture it
    and always help it grow.

    She is one whose traveled far,
    sometimes wide and deep.
    she knows the road is difficult,
    but never faltures when it gets too steep.

    I often sit and think of her,
    and wonder where she's been.
    I wonder if she's passed me by,
    and if she'll be back again.

    I might know her and she might know me,
    though our eyes have never met.
    We've struggled long to get this far,
    but neither has quit just yet.

    I hope she's near
    but often fear
    that she is out of reach.
    I ponder if I expand my search,
    we could do it forever more,
    along the mountain falls and along the beach...
