There are a lot of decent, worthy posters here and I'm glad you stopped by to add one to the count.
Thank you! I certainly do appreciate that.
Ah, heck, catch a nap, I'm gonna preach for a few lines.
I can't say that surprises me...
There are upset posters. They seem to wear their irritation as a hair shirt that they keep scratching and struggling under. After enough time,
they explode then settle back to being irritated. ATS Motto to the contrary, I don't mind ignorance. We all have bushels of it. We can fix that by
learning new facts. I even welcome disagreement, it's how I learn to use the new facts. I don't even mind stupid so much, adjustments can be made.
But I am not yet able to tolerate people whose hearts have been consumed by hate, envy, anger, pettiness, dishonor and darkness. Thankfully, those
aren't the majority, and I'm grateful for everyday I can spend listening to the knowledge and wisdom of ATSers whom I admire.
That was a pretty darn good "sermon", and, being one of the guilty, I can assure you that it didn't fall on, only, deaf ears.
I almost wish we could create a League of Friendly Posters, and accept for membership those who have demonstrated that they care for each other
more than winning an argument.
For the most part, that's what my "friends list" is all about, and I feel very honored by you allowing me to add you to it.
One of these days, Milt, you're going to have to give me lessons in cool. I think the last musical trend I can positively identify is Disco, I
don't have any earphones, and I've never spent more than $19.95 for tennis shoes. I've got the same mustache I had in the Army 40 years ago. I took
nine months to try to kiss my first high school girlfriend, six weeks later she was engaged to somebody else.
Milt! I gotta get me some of that cooool. (I don't even know if they still use the word "cool.") Teach me, Oh wise one.
Surely, you DO jest! The only thing "cool" about me, is the way I appear in my avatar.
Also, I have no doubt that we both can remember when one could buy a pair of tennis shoes, AND A PAIR OF SNEAKERS, for MUCH less than "$19.95".
when it comes to kinks, I could give you a few names and phone numbers of .... well, maybe I'd better not, I have a reputation.
That's okay... I have a list of my own... and I ALWAYS check it twice...
I have certainly enjoyed our little "back and forth", and am looking forward to more of the same, in the future. I had a great day yesterday, and
you made it that much better. Thank you very much, my friend.
Sincerely, and with the utmost of respect,
