After years of rejection. Marvin finally gets lucky.


LOL. Got my Christmas wish early. Ho ho ho. Gas up the car. I'm doing the Christmas Twist. :)


",,,Thank you Simone...."

My life at the moment sucketh.

It really and truely does. 

I could "count my blessings"  or "look at the cup half full".

That's what got me into this mess in the first place.

So I'm doing what any sane person would do.

I'm taking recess.



I hear it's in each of us to make our own selves happy....

Ohh yeah.


"...What. What do you want me to say?  Don't go? Your my woman? Stay?  What do you want?..."

Yeah, about that.  If someone is still talking directly to you instead of  looking around for the nearest exit?  It might be a good idea to pay attention.

.This life is like constantly picking a scab and then expecting the wound to heal.
Lemmie give you a clue.
It doesn't.

I'm exhausted from the effort.

So I'm asking you with all sincerity.

Let's play hooky.


LOL. So how do you write about your real world in public and yet maintain your private parts?

.Gotta go. BBL. WriterAnn


I watch the LLS with tv's CF which lead me to this comment...  The post talked about CF's mention of Scotland's contribution to the Age of Enlightenment.

Then it linked to a vid of a dog chewing off a person's toe only they don't know it.

To me that is the humor of the LLSwTCF.  Kind of like a boomerang.

Re: Enlightenment

LOL, you do know that one of the links on this post is about a dog chewing off a women's toe (and that she doesn't even realize it's happening).

For some reason seeing the words , "...Their views were guided by reasoning and the rejection of authority that couldn’t be justified by reason...." on the same post as a link to a dog chewing off a woman's toe and she doesn't know it to be the kind of humor of CF's Late night television talk show.

Good golly, I do love the Internet...."


Hello Latvia.  Must be a Taylor Swift fan. Me too. 

Welcome to 12dots.


"The stakes are high.
The water's rough.
But this love is ours..."

The first time I met my neighbor, she was working out in the yard. I remember how beautiful the yard looked.  So I did what folks do here, they ask how the person manages to get their yard looking so beautiful.

During the conversation she out of the blue told me that her husband would be back next month. "Business?" I asked.  The reply was no.  Her husband was in Iraq. In one of those moments where people instinctively know that a complete stranger could be trusted, she told me that she didn't talk about it much. Part of her was worried about being alone while her husband was so far away.  I told her not to worry.  They'd both be fine.

I'm happy to say that he made it back. He's nice. They both are.

I've started thanking people who have come back from Iraq. It's alittle weird because some of these folks are complete strangers.  I do it because of a guy I met on one of my trips.  He was a Vietnam veteran.  He told me, with tears in his eyes, that his return from Vietnam was rocky.  People weren't nice to him.  It wasn't that they ignored him or were completely oblivious to there being a wa-- I mean a military action in Vietnam.  If they had do so, it would have been easier. Nope. After a nightmare of a time in Vietnam, he returned home to complete strangers who hated him for being in the military. Didn't matter if he was drafted or if he volunteered.   He was trying so hard not to cry that the next thing I knew he had snapped to attention.  Everything but the salute. 

He was still waiting for someone to welcome him home.

So when I see someone has come back safe and sound?

I say, "Welcome home."



That's the truth.
