Why? So what if I interpreted his post that way? It's not big deal.

Itís best described a laughably fringe interpretation. I donít want anyone who hadnít seen the post assuming you might be accurately describing it. It was clearly a pathetically mean-spirited insult, later quietly rescinded until being called out, only to go with an even more pathetic (and nonsensical) excuse.

People can check & interpret that post without any help.

I didn't see Mikie make fun of usawoman's posts. If there was history of such doing, THEN we're talking. That's why I didn't find it insulting. Not more, not less.

It puzzles me great deal when people care about some poster being possibly insulted with whom they never talked with or contributed much in the said poster's threads. In this case, usawoman. What's the sudden concern? <-- Rhetorical question, if you're going to write again in/direct insults towards anything I say, I'll let you have final word (or better do it in head coz I don't care).

Spending the night at hospital with a loved one.
She had to have a strong medication yesterday because she freaks out when going into the MRI machine. Unfortunately it can take up to three days for the med to wear off.
She's in another world. Earlier she was making hand motions as if she was sewing or perhaps knitting.
Kept yelling at Tanner the cat to get off the bed. Called for my sister to get the cat. Couple of problems - there's no cat, and my sister lives in the state of Maryland, not exactly close to New Orleans. Thought maybe someone should go to a toy store and get a stuffed cat, show it to her and say, "Here's the cat. Watch while I take her out of the room."
Later she talked about flowers and said "thanks for the tour" .
 I decided to Keep Calm and listen to the Beach Boys. Nice.
About 6 more hours to go, then I can go home and maybe sleep.

Speaking of cat, went with him to visit veterinarian, his right eye got smaller due to allergy. The doctor said it's conjunctivitis. Prescribed special eye liquid drops. We checked few enterprises to find them but then some nice cat lady gave the address to different place in the other end of the city. We drove to it & indeed those super rare drops were there. Drove back, now few hours later he sleeps in basket, the eye doesn't bother him for now.

Hey Captain - don't mean to make you the link to all things Pet Sounds Forum but if you ever get a chance, please tell Super Metroid that I think her debate posts are fantastic.

That's good to hear, CSM. I'm sure she'll really appreciate that. :=)

Right now I'm cleaning and repairing the garden furniture. Spot of work (as in earning money) after that. Good to keep the mind occupied.

As for the pond, the tadpoles and toadpoles or whatever they're called are arriving now but not in the huge numbers I was expecting. The timebomb is still ticking...

The actual politics forum there is quite peaceful, really. Too quiet, if anything. Itís the various political (or personal-meets-political) fires that start in other parts of the board that are ugly.

Choosing oneís battles is the way to go. Iím not always good at it, but Iím getting better. One day Iíll learn.

Nola BB Fan: Iím sorry to hear about the time you have been having. A veteran of seemingly countless hours in hospitals with loved ones, I know how terrible it can be. The actual underlying illness, the bureaucracy of the institution, the ďhurry up and waitĒ feel, the never satisfying answers, the stress of interacting with other, also stressed, visitors...itís terrible. Numbing and painful all at once. You have my sympathy.

Oh, and the coffee is always awful.

Bar the odd burst of belligerence, I'd say you were exemplary, cap'n.

I wasn't putting down the politics forum as such----it's just not for me. I know when a thing is just or not, but once party politics enters the fray, I have great trouble telling my @rse from my elbow. And the fires you speak of are indeed ugly at times.

Actually, I'm in the middle of a brief sabbatical from PSF. What's that line in that Who song about sometimes having to get out in the light? That's describes it rather nicely. Smokin

1st May is holiday here. Went with cousin to parade - lotta people in the street with balloons, flowers & posters. We went for walk, then we sat in the vacant bench drinking water & eating what we bought (she bought ice cream, I didn't - got influenza with various inconvenient symptoms - high temperature, headache etc). Then despite being dizzy I said let's keep walking. It was fun, she said many funny stories about school, her classmates, brother etc. In total, we walked since 12 p.m. till 5 p.m. Time flies when you talk, you know. & she got back home (her mother/ my aunt kept sending whatsapp messages to not be long, it's getting cold etc). Me as well but not before buying cat food to meowing cutie. :D

He's banned, so he shouldn't be able to see the board.

Really? Does it work that way? That's a bit drastic, isn't it? I would have thought not being able to post was sufficient.

I was kicked off the old Capitol BB MB for insubordination but I could browse it from day one on.
I could be wrong, but that's the way I've always understood it to be. I know that it works that way over at PSF.

Take it from me, Jay, it doesn't work that way here.  Smokin

These days I'm sitting on a time bomb, a time bomb of frogspawn and toadspawn. Our small pond is full of the stuff (and I mean full!). When the bomb explodes, I expect to be spending all day and half the night carrying buckets of tadpoles down the road to the nearest canal.

It's starting to look critical. Everything's hatched now and the newt must be really feeling squeezed out by its 1000+ new neighbours.

I think the real trouble will begin once they all start sprouting legs. Whether it does or not, it's still one heck of a population explosion. Grin

Got a call yesterday from my 96 year-old uncle in Hawaii. They had just experienced an earthquake which shook the house and knocked s bunch of things over. They were not hurt but I could hear their poodle, Monet, whimpering. Due to the movement of lava possibly getting to their house, along with dangerous gasses being emitted, they have to evacuate.
So I was acting as liaison letting everyone know what was happening.

Tried to relax at night, watching a basketball game (our local team is in the playoffs), when something landed on me. A termite! I immediately turned off the lights.
May is termite swarming season here. They fly around at night looking for light and water. No matter how sealed up your house is, those critters find a way of getting in. I hate it when one gets into my hair - ycch!

Oooff! Heard about that on the news this morning. Six point something... that's pretty heavy. I hope everyone's safe now.

About tadpoles
We have a fair amount of frogs around here but most of the tadpoles are eaten by the egrets who visit our pond.
During the summer the frogsí croaking lulls me to sleep

While, yes, three weeks ago I was complaining about the nearly two feet of snow that fell, I've spent the past two days (and a few evenings last week) doing yard and garden work, because we've now had a couple weeks of temperatures in the 60s, 70s, and even 80s.

I raked up whatever was dead throughout the yard after the winter; tilled and added new soil and manure to the garden; transplanted a few tulip plants to make room for some edible plants in a new area of my yard; put down plenty of grass seed; planted three varieties of tomatoes, two of chili peppers, two of basil, two of oregano, as well as cilantro and dill, which will accompany the perennials of chives (suddenly a shaggy mass grown in no time), a couple types of thyme, mint, rosemary, sage, and savory; and watered everything.

I'll be drinking on my patio this afternoon, though also making a vegetable noodle (homemade noodles!) soup.
