Does anyone remember POSSLQ? Persons of Opposite S-x Sharing Living Quarters? Y'all are probably too young, but I remember it. Back when living together first "got popular" and society in general was trying to fit it into the (then) current mores, somebody came up with that. Seems "boyfriend" or "girlfriend" just didn't cut it anymore, those who were wading in the waters wanted it known - it was a social statement in those days - but they just couldn't come up with a term. Hence, POSSLQ. Pronounced Possle-Q. It didn't catch on, obviously. Probably my PHEWS won't either. (sniff.) --Romeena

Thanks Lucy, I know that not all judges are like my Dad, I just wish my dad had been like more judges, know what I mean? I believe there are alot of good ones out there.
You see, when I was a little girl, my dad hung the moon. I adored him and he was always there for me. He was the one I would go to when I was hurt or afraid. I can remember bursting at the seams with excitement every day just waiting for him to get home from work. I just couldn't wait for him to come through that door so I could fly into his arms. He was a good dad to me, but when I was about 7, he became a judge and starting seeing the other woman and he was always gone. He just wasn't around anymore. Of course, I didn't know why at that time but I know he wasn't there much. I regret that. Anyway, I know we all had problems growing up so I won't dwell on it. It's just kind of hard to explain that for most of my life I turned off my emotions and now that I am in therapy, the emotions are turning back on, so to speak and I am feeling the past hurts that were not dealt with. The conversation with BWB just struck some kind of chord that brought back a painful memory, and really, that is a good thing (my counselor would thank you, BWB!). The pain needs to come out so I can get rid of it. Thank you all for the kinds words. You are a help to me. Just want you to know that I might be a bit "sensitive" for awhile.

I'm glad you liked that, BWB. Maybe you can think of it now and then when you'd like to reach over your bench and smack some sense into somebody's head.
Boo, I just can't imagine what that would be like. I've had a few hard bumps in my life, with cancer 1979, losing my husband when I was 56, my dad's Alzheimer's and all, and losing both parents in the past few years. Of course, they were both 80 or older, so that was just natural, but it still hurt. Nevertheless, I never was disappointed or betrayed by anyone whom I loved, so I can't imagine how that would feel. Hang in there, my friend. God is the one and only constant in this life, He never lets us down, and I know that you, of all people, know that. You'll be in my prayers. --Romeena

Isn't it weird that you can't adopt a puppy from the SPCA without undergoing a rigorous check on your ability to provide it with a good home, but any ditzy girl can get pregnant and just decide to keep it? We have them come in to deliver, and learn that they're living in their car somewhere! Others come in saying the baby will be for adoption, the adoptive parents are there complete with carseat and clothes, and hearts full of love, and at the last minute, the 17 yr old, unemployed girl says "Oh, she's just so cute, I think I'm going to keep her!" In one case, one of our own deliveries came in at age four months, beaten up and bruised, with shaken-child symdrome, and died. The dumb little girl's boyfriend did it, then skipped the country, back to El Salvador. Just try to get him extradited. Ha! --Romeena

Good morning, early birds. What sweet conversation went on last night! There's just nothing like good friends - we all need 'em.
I don't know what that box is, either, unless maybe Floyd is setting up the log-in thing. Notice the end of the line on top, right behind "Comments". It reads "idform". Just a guess.
Well, I'm off to church. Sugarplum says 10-4. I wish she could go with me. She doesn't snore nearly as loud as Gomer! --Romeena
June 25, 2006 - Msg 41036:
Hmm...How did we end up with 2 "Comments" boxes? I'm gonna have to look at this more closely when I get home. It was/isn't something *I* did on purpose.--Floyd
June 25, 2006 - Msg 41037:
I think the extra box you guys saw may have been caused by two of you posting at exactly the same time. I'll have to make sure that I have that locked so it can't happen. I'll have to do that after I get home from this event.
By the way, it went great! The show was a blast! Thelma Lou (Betty Lynn) sang and Johnny Paul (Keith Thibodeaux) did a great routine. Y'all missed it but try and make plans to attend one of our future events.

Good morning porch! Lucy from your MSG yesterday 40842 I actually don't watch much T.V. Yeah it sound's like I do, but I only watch one AGS episode in the morning, and then no T.V. for the day, and then at night an hour episode (you guy's know what I watch) and then right befour I go to bed one more 25 minute AGS episode.
Hey Floyd, Spot, Mil and BWB!

I get the impression there are a lot of church folks here. I am five hours ahead of EDT so about the time we go back to church tonight this place will probably liven up.

Afternoon Porchesters. Hope all is well this Sunday afternoon. Back from church and just resting a bit. Good service today, saw slides of the youth's mission trip and several of the youth and chaperones shared their experiences. What a blessing to us all. My husband is working today so we are going to be lazy until time to go back to church. Since SPOT is off on vacation, I will
take care of dinner. Pork barbeque sandwiches, cole slaw, baked beans and potato salad. Lemonade, tea or soft drinks. Dessert will be
watermellon. Ya'll come about 4 and we will play badmitton, or get up a game of softball. See you at 4pm. Big Maude

Good afternoon, I just wanted to see how things are going on the porch this Sunday. Is anyone going to watch the new western coming on tonight starring Robert Duvall? I think its called Broken Trail or something like that. I am going to watch it. Loved Lonesome Dove.
I stayed up too late last night! After I left the porch I had to watch the rest of African Queen. Pretty good flick. I would love to take a nap but have to attend a going-away party for some friends this afternoon.
Better go get ready (groan!).

Thanks, BWB, isn't it unusual to have such a rapport with someone right off? I think that's the best thing about this site. I'm not much of an internet person, and I don't "surf" much at all, but I found that Andy Griffith fans seem to be a special sort. I feel a connection with these people, something I don't get elsewhere. I may just be sappy and corny, but that's how I feel. These are real people. I love this place!

Well, my stepchildren are at the airport. They are flying standby thanks to a lovely patient of my husband's that gave us buddy passes. Its storming here so they didn't get on their original flight. Their Mother threw such a tantrum to everyone, including my answering machine. I refuse to talk to someone that irrational. Thank goodness for caller id and voicemail! Anyhow, their flight is supposed to get in at 10. Hubby's flight gets in at 7. I don't know if he's just gonna wait around the airport or have me come and get him to come home for awhile first. We're only 30 min. away.
I have mixed reactions about them coming. Its pretty common knowledge that my stepdaughter hates me. I'm just gonna treat her like a little sister and try not to have a chip on my shoulder like I did last year. SD said some really nasty lies and she said that my deceased son stunk and I just kept playing it over and over. I just thought I have to be perfect or she's going to tell more lies. Then, I resented her for having a miserable summer. Well, I'm not going to let a 10 year old girl get to me. I'll be my happy go lucky self and she can tell her Mom anything she wants. I really do not care. I do worry because SD is morbidly obese and I've recently lost 30 lbs, will she hold that against me. She's already jealous of Bryson for being little and cute. She's bigger than I am. Any suggestions if she brings it up?
I have the house cleaned, but I need to work on paperwork. Better get busy. I'll check back in later!
Blessings to you and yours,
Mil- We love you too!
