Message: Go Yankees! It was so nice to see SMILES on peoples faces here today, instead of people looking like nervous ghosts. (I have been smiling for a couple of weeks with a new granddaughter, the latest light of my life.) Even if we don't win the Series, these last 2 games have been really amazing. I wanted to comment on Political Correctness. It started out as a way to be sensitive to others, but it has become a new way of trying to control people's thinking. There is no one less politically correct than me. I loved the South Park episode where they tried to have a Christmas show without offending anyone by any possible phrase, song, idea, etc., and everything became so bland and ridiculous. How about if we celebrate everyone's holidays------no one will be offended and we can all have that much more fun! Anyway, hope you all had a great Halloween. And we can all look forward to that great American holiday, Thanksgiving (anyone against giving?)
Thanks Pat, Outside of the "Go Yankees" comment, I agree with everything you said. My friend Ernie calls his wife the old "Apron Hanger". Now that's not politically correct, but they've been together for at least 27 years and love each other very much.
Also what the heck is this Kwanza thingaroony? I never heard of that one until about 4 years ago, when some politically correct Jesse Jackson said, "the black people need a holiday too". They already have Miss Black America and Black Actors Awards night. Try getting away with Miss WHITE America and see how long that one lasts.
Also, the MORE politically correct your are, the more vague you can become. If I say "Congresswoman" I know that person's an XX chromosomer, but if I say congressperson, I'm lost. Bottom Line: "Apron Hanger" is pushing it, but "Mailman" of "Mailgirl"....... what's wrong with that?

Message: Jim: I want to apologize to you, for guilting you. Patty is a decent, kind person. She doesn't harbor too much resentment for those of us who have gotten on her bad side. But please, don't remind me of her past with the poisonous berries, the red-hot tortilla prong, or the "meet my retarded sister..." stories. That would kind of put a damper on all this apologizing.

Message: Gloria I thought you would never apologize to that WOMAN! Well in the same light as Gloria I too would like to publicly apologize to "little" Patty Valencia who I used to tease when she was hanging out with her big sister. I am sorry Patty I hope you were never offended and I hope you will find it in your heart to forgive me [Patty this is serious-pretty much]. Thanks Gloria for giving me the courage to do that. You are truly someone to look up to... isn't she Patty? I think we should have an annual Gloria day on Cougartown where we could apologize to each other and start fresh. I feel a group hug coming on, huh John? Janny, Judy what do you think?
That's it Jim, tease the Pit Bull.

Message: Alan, just who do you think taught me this stuff? Some of it was passed on by none other than dear old Guiseppa!!! A wise-woman, indeed. There is just no telling what those old Italian ladies could teach you. Ah, something my Grandmother taught me: I was sunbathing in the back yard...something that she hated for us to do, and would always come out and put dishtowels over our faces, so we wouldn't get wrinkles. At this time, my Grandmother was in her 80's. She comes over to me with a shovel and a hat. So I asked her what she was doing. She said she needed to spread manure on the front yard. She said she had the will, but not the way. She told me I had the way, but not the will. So, the only things to do is use her will and my way. without uttering a peep, I got up off the lounger, took the shovel from her, walked to the front yard, sat her on the porch in a rattan queen's chair with a glass of wine, I put on the hat and spread her manure. What did I learn? Old age and treachery with always outwit youth and skill.
Sounds like you spread it pretty thick too...

Hope you have a great Halloween and hand out lots of goodies to all the kiddies out there tonight. Out here on the river, we get only deer and skunks, and rockchucks, and they don't want candy :o). But I still have the house and yard all decorated with witches, ghosts, pumpkins, cats, and lights. This is probably the only day of the year I truly miss Redondo. Be safe and don't eat to many peanut butter cups John ....

Message: Ah Fellow Cougars...All Hallows Eve, the day of Witches, Ghosts & goblins. Speaking of witches, What are we to believe, there are so many conflicting stories. Do we believe the tales of evil witches like we have seen in “The Blair Witch Project”, those kid gobbling witches of “Hocus Pocus”, Or our favorite witch ”Angeligue” that evil being from “Dark Shadows”. But then again we have “Glenda” the good witch of the North from the “Wizard of OZ”, “Samantha” the nose twitcher from “Bewitched”, “Sabrina” The teenage witch and lest we forget those three demon fighting witches from “Charmed” it is all so perplexing. And to think it all started in America, when in a small town in Massachusetts, a small girl fell sick in 1692. Her “fits”—convulsions, contortions, and outbursts of gibberish—baffled everyone. Other girls soon manifested the same symptoms. Their doctor could suggest but one cause. "Witchcraft". That grim diagnosis launched a Puritan inquisition that took 25 lives, filled prisons with innocent people, and frayed the soul of a Massachusetts community called Salem. To find out more go to: play the game, can you survive?
Sounds kinda SPOOKY to me....

I do however, remember one day when Mrs. M "swept the negativity" out of Jeff Bodkin on the way home from school when he tried to take the shortcut. Rick Trulinger - I remember the nails too - they also affected those of us who were just quietly riding by on bicycles.
