Fran a gollywog is a black doll with frizzy hair. Its called a Golly now as its rather unPC to use the wog bit. Now the interesting thing is is MIster Gollywog was a Dutch doll that had all these wonderful adventures.

The Blessing of Unanswered Prayers
I asked for strength that I might achieve;
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.

I asked for health that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.

I asked for riches that I might be happy;
I was given poverty that I might be wise.

I asked for power that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.

I got nothing that I had asked for,
but everything that I had hoped for.

Almost despite myself my unspoken prayers were answered;
I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

- Unknown Confederate soldier

9:58 am

Thanks for your help! Have a good night Q
9:58 am
Queenruejean

You're welcome, SK. Do you need any before I go?
9:59 am
skheiny

Actually yes. 3 of the 4 "r"s...not the"pay" one
10:00 am
Queenruejean

Okay, the re4/4 are similar. One is a spelling for King, I believe. And the other has a double vowel in the middle. The ry is a type of bread, pluralized.
10:01 am
skheiny

duh...bread...thx, will work hard for the others, thx
10:01 am
Queenruejean

With the king one, think "I am, you are, she ** " for the ending.
10:02 am
Queenruejean

And both end in the same letter.
10:02 am
skheiny

geat clue on "king"!!!
10:03 am
Queenruejean

Glad it helped, SK. Remember the other one is a double vowel, so you already have the first one built in.
10:04 am
skheiny

got 'em all thx so much...I might actually finish one of the darn things! HAHA
10:04 am
Queenruejean

Good luck! If i can help anymore I'm really in no rush to do laundry!
10:05 am
skheiny

well..lets see..plz let me gather my biz (you're so kind to put off laundry for me ;-) )
10:06 am

Yeah, I'm being noble, not lazy! That's it! :)
10:07 am

2nd "d"...not de4/8
10:08 am
CadFan

do 4/11
10:08 am
Anniebrook

de + hi **
10:08 am
skheiny

sure...missing a 6
10:08 am
Uniquity

do - ends with double consonant
10:09 am
Anniebrook

do ---remove hat in greeting
10:09 am
Queenruejean

I'm not sure if you want the other de4/8 or the do4/11. do is to tip your hat. Ends in the opposite of on.
10:09 am
Anniebrook

I'm back for a while
10:09 am
Uniquity

2nd de - to be good with the hands (i believe)
10:09 am
skheiny

do 4/11...got that
10:10 am
Queenruejean

the de that Annie didn't clue means capable. If you are good at something you are de**
10:10 am
skheiny

got that de...still clueless :-)
10:10 am
Anniebrook

the other de has to do with stereo...the old type--hi **
10:11 am
Queenruejean

Or think of the word that means disobey & replace the last letter with a vowel.
10:11 am
skheiny

thx Annie!
10:12 am
Anniebrook

yw, sk
10:12 am
skheiny

10:15 am
Anniebrook

ae---bird's home
10:15 am
Queenruejean

An alternate spelling for an eagles nest.
10:15 am
Anniebrook

ae 4/6
10:15 am
Uniquity

Sounds like when there is a lot of space in a room...
Or the ending for an olden style little magical creature.
Or...ae + **e bread
10:16 am
Queenruejean

Good clues, Uniquity.
10:16 am

10:17 am
skheiny

"c"...I think it's one of the 5s?
10:17 am
Uniquity

there are no c 5s...there is a 6, is that it?
10:18 am
skheiny

sorry, don't know how to clue it better
10:18 am
Uniquity

If so, it is the 4,6 + two vowels.
10:18 am
Anniebrook


co 4/6 and another 2 vowels
10:18 am
Anniebrook

there is no co 5's
10:18 am
Queenruejean

There is no c 5. The 6 is the co4/6 plus 2 vowels.
10:18 am
skheiny

got the 6...shoot...
10:18 am
Queenruejean

I think there's an echo in here. :)
10:18 am
Uniquity

LOL. Great minds..
10:18 am
Anniebrook

we are all of the same mind....echo...echo...
10:19 am
Anniebrook

Of those which do you have?

10:20 am
Uniquity

co + I o**en get confused at babble clues
10:20 am
Queenruejean

co4/8 c + ***en (frequently)
10:20 am
Anniebrook

you need a co 4/8----c + (pick up line) "do you come here ***en?
10:22 am
skheiny

10:28 am
Uniquity

the first four letters of the seven are a word on their own
10:28 am
Anniebrook

ti ----a spat,--ends in double consonant
10:29 am
Anniebrook

Uni, great clue
10:29 am
Queenruejean

te4/10 ends the same as the ti4/10
10:29 am
Uniquity

There is also what a clock tells you (the ti**), past tense of one who tells it, plural of the past tense AND plural of the original four letter word. (Bit confusing, I know)
10:29 am
skheiny

I've got that and 2 4/5s, a 4/10, 2 5/12s and its 6/21
10:30 am
Anniebrook

the rest of the ti's have to do with seconds, minutes, hours..etc
10:30 am
Queenruejean

And I would clue the ti4/5 but I'm all ti** up right now.
10:30 am
Anniebrook

Uni spells it out perfectly
10:30 am
skheiny

sorry my reesponses come slow...I'm visit Russia
10:30 am
Anniebrook

that takes care of the T's
10:30 am
skheiny

so does my typing LOL
10:31 am
Queenruejean

Sounds like you may be missing the te I clued earlier.
10:31 am
Uniquity

skheiny - it is a pleasure to clue, especially to someone so excited to finish. Your response time is irrelevant (but fine!)
10:31 am
skheiny

Q = yeah, I totally missed that..is it out of reach? What time clock
10:32 am
skheiny

babble chatter goes so fast...
10:32 am

ryone for your help
10:32 am
Queenruejean

I agree with Uni.
10:33 am
Queenruejean

Not with me! My computer is the old Fisher Price model with the coal chute on the side. It's sloooow.
10:34 am
Uniquity

Lol @ ruejean...I have my two year old devoted lappy. Supposed to be writing a paper right now, but this is much better!
10:35 am
Queenruejean

Uni, you could write a paper on how to clue in Babble??
10:35 am
Anniebrook

Yes, she could and get an A
10:35 am
Queenruejean

SK, did you get the T you were missing?
10:36 am
Uniquity

I don't think my history prof. would be too impressed...if only I got credit for babble!

Let us know what you need sk, I'll try to be more comprehensive if necessary
10:36 am
AsGreen

omg that was AWFUL!!! : I closed the tab by mistake and couldn't get back in!! whew, I'm back
10:36 am
skheiny

Shoot...so many clues...pretty sure it's the "te" but I think the clues "runnoft" (from my fav movie)
10:37 am
Queenruejean

The te ends in a double consonant. Same as the ti4/10
10:37 am

10:40 am
Anniebrook

pooh, pooh

Uniquity

10:51 am
Queenruejean

The h's - ha4/6 is a pork product with a vowel inserted in the 3rd space. The next two ha4/5's start the same but end in different consonants. The two he4/5 both start the same. Look at he*, she is flying! The two hi's are past tense of to hurry and also the plural. And finally hy, is a song in a church.

80%!!! I'm jealous...I'm gonna have to pay fat delivery charges for last minute gift buying...I've got a 4 day window from USSR to Philly to see my sister
11:15 am

The first y is a slangy form of yes. The second rhymes with a rude person. Like you might yell "What a J***!"

11:27 am
Queenruejean

Thanks, SK. It's fine. My husband's family doesn't do gifts & it's no big deal. Just a bad year.

11:29 am
Dispatch

i'm depending on you now, queen. how about a clue for my missing s? i have the looker and the big truck
11:29 am
Queenruejean

Oh sure, SK. My husband & I consider our love a gift to one another & life is really good. As long as we are together. That's enough.
11:30 am
Queenruejean

Well, Dispatch, it se**s to me that you may be missing the se4/5.
11:30 am

OK, than I will say a prayer that my husband and I have the gifts that you 2 do!

11:32 am

Babs, the 5 letter is your butt. The other is the beginning of the second one, but with a vowel on the end. 4/7
11:32 am
Dispatch

well, the f5 is your bum, and the f4 is fa + opposite of yes
11:33 am

OMG! We've been married only one year (after many failed attempts - cumulative) and we're so thankful we've finally found each other...that is THE GIFT!!

this grid has a lot of high scoring words, for such a dinky puzzle!
11:40 am
Queenruejean

SK, it's neat that you get to travel with him. For the first 15 years of our marriage, my husband was in the Navy. I couldn't go with him. Wouldn't fit in the seabag. :(
11:42 am
jeanne314

Wow! what a way to see the world!!! I did 20 in the Air Force (it's how I learned a little Russian), but I never traveled like you!!!! I bet you've got a good sense of adventure (after you recover from the jet lag, of course)...and yes, when the love is there you'll go anywhere!!!!! Schastlivo!
11:42 am
Babs1

I have 4 co 4's..wondering what I might be still missing for the 5th c?

Babs, You could be missing the 4/8 c + ***en. (Frequently)
11:44 am
skheiny

Love is everything isn't Jeanne! My sense of lust for new food and architecture gives me the drive...USSR has amazing buildings, but sadly I see many landmarks being torn down for "western progress"
11:45 am
Babs1

hmm.. i have 1 co 4/8--are there 2?
11:45 am
Queenruejean

Or maybe co4/11. C + the opposite of on. Nope, just one 4/8
11:46 am
Niamh

hello all!
babs, maybe the co 6/24?
11:46 am
Babs1

I've 2 co 4/6, 1 4/11, and 1 4/8...

Queenruejean

Now, now, Sandie. Don't get rash. There's always something to do other than useful things!
11:50 am
Queenruejean

You're welcome, Babs. Sorry Pabtrek, I thought you just wanted the starting letters, not a clue. Dense.
11:51 am
Sandieangel

May need to slouch in front of the TV then Queen!!!!
11:51 am
pabtrek

that's okay, any kind of help is appreciated
11:51 am
Babs1

how about the e on the bottom row right corner?
11:51 am
Queenruejean

It's an alternate spelling of weird, creepy.
11:52 am
jeanne314

One has to bring a lot of "internal" energy to really enjoy the good things in life...I've never been bored anywhere, anytime in my life...but it takes work sometimes to learn about a place. Interestingly, my friend Alex was an electrical engineer there...the codes are quite a bit different!!! Do you have employment there??? Sorry for all the questions, but curiosity has yet to kill this cat. Do you speak Russian??? J.
11:52 am
Babs1

Thanks...duh! don't usually attempt to finish...but since this one is so short, thought I'd give it a go, but as you can see, not so self-sufficient in finding them all!
11:53 am
Queenruejean

No problem, Babs. We all need help sometimes.
11:54 am

11:57 am
pabtrek

yw Babs
11:57 am
Queenruejean

There is an HA 4/6 which ends with Auntie **. The HA4/5s start the same. One ends with "I ** something that didn't agree with me."
11:58 am
Queenruejean

The hi 4/5 is the plural of to hurry. ANd the hy is a song sung in church.
11:58 am
pabtrek

thanks for that ha4/6 queen
11:58 am
Queenruejean

You're welcome, Pabtrek.

myhusband John says that they seem to be in the 1970's as far as "codes"...35+ people have died on the sight due to inexperience...I am hoping to be emplyed jeanne...Joh plans to switch to the Kradnador office (better pay/living conditions/internet...etc) I'm a tech writer by trade...but I don't know the language yet (but I'm picking it up faster than J - LOL - he's too tech)...hopefully I can find a position int there contracts div..."go-between" from the translators to "official" contract language...make sense?

12:02 pm
skheiny

sorry and thanks for sticking around
12:02 pm
Queenruejean

There are two off the second row d. They both are de4/8. ONe means handy, good at something. The other ends in a double consonant. Same as the do4/11
12:03 pm
Niamh

~!~Fireworks~!~
12:03 pm
Queenruejean

Dang, I need a new brain. The second de4/8 is actually like the word meaning to disobey, but replace the y with a vowel.
12:03 pm
pabtrek

that doesn't work Queen
12:03 pm
Queenruejean

Congrats Niamh!!!
12:04 pm

Sounds like a great skill to have. Krasnodar should be a big improvement!!! Much better climate, close to Black Sea...fresh fruit...Don River...read Sholokhov's "And Quiet Flows the Don" (Tikhii Don) for a great history. I just finished it. Anyways, I really envy you! I'm glad you're progressing on the language. What a skill set you have!!!! I write too much, and sorry for pushing good clues down the screen sooooo fast!!!! Cheers, J.

USSR food needs spice!!! I'm from TX...we're "spicy people" :-)
12:06 pm

Well, How about this? I don't think I'll eat that leftover turkey. It smells if** to me!
12:06 pm
Babs1

got the de's need one g--not the presents, and one y (have 4/7) and one r..have 4/4, 5/12, and 4/6..
12:07 pm
jeanne314

All - and why isn't semite listed in the dictionary!!! It's in the puzzle bigger'n Dallas, it is an adjective albeit a "proper" one...sometimes I wonder... Hahahaha I understand about the spice!!!! Alex suggests you don't call it USSR anymore even though the whole area may still suggest it still exists!!!! LOL, J.
12:07 pm

There are two re4/4. One is re + I am, you are, she **. The other one ends the same but has double vowels in the middle.

Atalante...just went to your deviant site--your work is so fabulous...i forget now what mediums you use mostly and where you studied??
12:25 pm

by the way, how's your dog doing today??
12:25 pm
Atalante

I didnt study art, I just taught myself :) and I usually use watercolour and pencil. I'm trying to learn digital painting and failing miserably LOL
12:26 pm
jeanne314

get some sleep...it's rather late for you!!! (or early)....till next time, poka!!!
12:26 pm
Atalante

awww my poor babe, she has an infection in the skin of her ear :(
12:26 pm
Atalante

antibiotics, collar stays on for a while!
12:27 pm
Babs1

wow! Izzy is mostly self-taught as well. How do you find work? Any schools in England and Europe you'd recommend for college? one of her friends interested in tech. theater is looking for schools your way!
12:27 pm
skheiny

:-) thanks jeanne
12:27 pm
Babs1

bummer--those collars are so miserable, but worth it!
12:28 pm
Haz1558

Hello Atalante - what's the infection?
12:29 pm
Atalante

there are some really good theatre schools over here, especially RADA depending on what part of theatre one wants to study. Art schools, again there are great ones, but nothing I'd say thats any better than any over there
12:29 pm
Vicuna

Hello, all. Does anyone know the total points for today, please?
12:29 pm
Atalante

don't know, Haz. Vet has given us 10 days of antibios, infection probably came from a cut while out in the woods or something, who knows!

help i have one word left it is hi 4/5 i know its right in front of me and obvious but i can't find it help!!!!
12:31 pm
Atalante

definitely blaming them. but hopefully antibios will stop it itching and de-puff it, then we can take the lampshade off!
12:31 pm
Atalante

haz, hi! Vi, hi! JMH, hi! *grin*
12:31 pm
Vicuna

there's "clue" at 12:25
12:31 pm
Atalante

that was a clue
12:32 pm
Vicuna

lol, Ata! Those were lovely hi4 you just gave us!
12:32 pm
Haz1558

Yes, hopefully you'll see progress in a couple of days. Farmers are notorious for injecting animals, waiting 3 or 4 hours, then ringing up to see if they can give any more effective antiobiotic.... it takes time!
12:33 pm
Atalante

LOL! poor vets. I'll give her till Thursday then try taking the collar off
12:33 pm
JMHBEAN

thanks sooooo much all of you, this is my first fireworks can't believe i actually completed onex
12:34 pm
Vicuna

Farmers and mothers! Around here the pediatricians have a terrible time with mothers who want their children to get antibiotics for everything.
12:34 pm
Atalante

yay JMH!
12:34 pm
Vicuna

Yay for JMHBEAN!
12:34 pm

12:34 pm
Haz1558

Poor Hobbit. Was the vet sympathetic?
12:34 pm
Haz1558

I know, antibiotics are great, but you don't need them for everything.
12:35 pm
Atalante

very. she looooves the vet she saw today. absolutely adores him. she even let him do her anal glands without a whimper
12:35 pm
Haz1558

Congratulations on fireworks, JMH.
12:35 pm
Vicuna

Boy, I don't love anyone that much! lol
12:35 pm
Haz1558

Ah yes, the anal glands, the glamour end of vet medicine.
12:36 pm
Atalante

lol yes. such a lovely smell
12:37 pm
Atalante

we have vets from nice places here. the *best* vet is from Northern Ireland (I had to say that of course), but most of the others are from France / Belgium and they seem to have a lot more time for the animals than a lot of English vets do
12:37 pm
Haz1558

It's hard to beat a vet from Northern Ireland.
12:37 pm
Vicuna

It isn't nice to beat vets at all!
12:38 pm
Haz1558

True, and you probably shouldn't try beating them because they have superior weapons at their disposal.
12:38 pm
Atalante

he's called Cormac, has ginger hair adn drinks Guinness. Not a stereotype at all
12:39 pm
Vicuna

Yes, I only pick on people less talented than myself.
12:39 pm
Haz1558

No, absolutely not.
12:39 pm
Vicuna

So vets are right out.
12:40 pm
Haz1558

I think so, Vicuna. I've always known my place.
12:40 pm
Vicuna

"Cormac" must be in disguise. That's too good to be true.
12:40 pm
Atalante

lol I know, Vi! Its just perfect!
12:41 pm
Haz1558

Just as long as he doesn't say 'To be sure, to be sure, to be sure.' NOBODY says that.

2:10 pm
Lizsark

Nothing much really FM - my little girl is really sick and I'm on my own coz husband is away on work.
2:11 pm
Haz1558

Yes, Elizabethan collar the correct term. Lampshade just sounds more fun.

2:11 pm

Lizsark

2:13 pm
Haz1558

It was an infected cyst on her back.
2:13 pm
Haz1558

She completely ignored the stitches, she was very good.
2:13 pm
Lizsark

Oscar had some massive cysts removed from the top of his head 2 years ago - horrible
2:13 pm
Atalante

this is the first time Hobbit's had one ... she's done the spaying and paw stitches collarless, but this she just *scratches*
2:13 pm
Lizsark

2:13 pm
Lizsark

2:33 pm
Atalante

i;ve seen Medea on stage in Greek *smug*
2:33 pm
Haz1558

2:33 pm
FMitch

LOL
2:33 pm
Lizsark

Yes it is the Vellacott one
2:33 pm
Haz1558

Well, I actually wrote Medea, it wasn't whathisface at all. Beat that for smug.
2:34 pm
Atalante

anyone who knows acient greek is inherently smug, its part of the teaching
2:34 pm
Haz1558

Is that last sentence grammatical? (Mine?)
2:34 pm
Lizsark

You wrote MEdea? I had no idea you were THAT old Haz LOL
2:35 pm
Haz1558

Sort of like people who master ancient Eastern martial arts have a smug look?
2:35 pm
FMitch

Liz have you scruibbled lots of useful answers and comments in it?
ROFL, Haz you left yourself wide open for that one.
2:35 pm
Haz1558

Okay, maybe I didn't write it, but I probably could have done.

Atalante

2:39 pm
Haz1558

I'll agree. Nodding head vigorously.
2:39 pm
Haz1558

Poetry, war poetry, we have the Medea and the French Revolution to lookforward to ... sigh
2:42 pm
Atalante

Medea's not *depressing*. Its just - gory
2:42 pm

7:07 pm
tygerbryght

LOL, krista
7:07 pm

i think this one's a little stinker, Rob
7:07 pm
tygerbryght

I can usually finish the grid on my own (with help of word lists)
7:08 pm
pam

I do what I can, and if I see clues on the chat, I like to resolve them.... I usually get 3/4 done--I don't use any lists...
7:08 pm

but sometimes I have to get clues
7:08 pm
Krista

if I had a good memory, I'd do much better..I've been on here for a long time now, and find myself monkeying for the same "Babblets" over and over

Hi, lots
7:16 pm

I don't sweet ones... Like them savory...
7:16 pm
tygerbryght

probably because I grew up eating them that way
7:17 pm
brendiboo

i think i must be a hopeless case tyger has given me too difference clues for the ai words and i still cant get them
7:17 pm
Krista

we don't use marshmallows, either...never had them savory - how do you cook them?
7:17 pm
featherbee

brb
7:17 pm
Krista

me too, Rob..don't feel bad
7:17 pm
pam

I don't add sugar or anything sweet. Salt, pepper, and whatever I am in the mood for...
7:18 pm
Krista

interesting...i used to eat watermelon that way when I was a kid..seems gross now
7:18 pm
Krista

not saying what you do is gross, tho!
7:18 pm
tygerbryght

ai + *other (female parent) + hard - not *asy + don't leave the *oom
7:19 pm
pam

LOL, krista. I am not one for sweets--don't like maple syrup in my yams, etc.
7:19 pm
tygerbryght

bren, I sometimes need several clues. don't feel bad
7:19 pm
tygerbryght

the brown sugar (not light brown) has a tang to it. some people wouldn't care for it because it's not entirely sweet
7:20 pm
pam

I sometimes need more than several!!!!
7:20 pm
Krista

i'm more of a salt fiend than sugar, too
7:20 pm
brendiboo

woooooooo hooo done it thanks for spelling that one out tyger
7:20 pm
tygerbryght

7:20 pm

7:21 pm
tygerbryght

yay, bren
7:21 pm

missed bren's announcement of finish :P
7:21 pm
pam

I like salt over sugar, but don't use a lot of it. Used to use none, but the doc told me I needed to have SOME salt in my diet.
7:21 pm
brendiboo

that is my first ever grid solved woo hoo
7:22 pm
Krista

I worry about that happening to me, tyger. Right now I'm under dr's orders to eat more salt due to low blood pressure..I said if I eat anymore that I do, I'll explode or something
7:22 pm
brendiboo

thank you all
7:22 pm
tygerbryght

krista, maybe if you tried potassium instead??
7:22 pm
tygerbryght

or maybe there's some other factor that's keeping your BP low?
7:23 pm
Krista

it's funny how sensitive you become to it when you cut down, isn't it, Pam? It's a longterm side effect of chemo, tyger
7:23 pm
Krista

Congrats, Brenda!!
7:23 pm
tygerbryght

oh, krista. sorry to hear that
7:24 pm
pam

I have low blood pressure, too. And, I wasn't getting enough salt or potassium. Not chemo-related, might be endocrine, though. Doc is great and told me I had to eat salt--which made me happy
7:24 pm
Krista

Thanks. It's not a big problem if I drink enough and eat salt, though....Do you get fatigue with it Pam?
7:24 pm
tygerbryght

my doctor first told me to cut down on the salt 30+ years ago, when my BP was 108/78
7:25 pm
pam

Yes, krista. And lightheaded...
7:25 pm
tygerbryght

I still don't have to take BP meds, thanks to low salt
7:25 pm
pam

That's great, tyger!
7:26 pm
tygerbryght

today, it's 130/80
7:26 pm
Krista

Exactly, Pam. Especially when standing up. I was actually happy when they diagnosed me with the problem, because then I knew why I felt like crap and what I could do about it!
7:26 pm
tygerbryght

unless I'm hurting pretty bad, or upset
7:26 pm
Krista

That's wonderful, Tyger..always best do fix things with diet.
7:26 pm
tygerbryght

and I'm in my mid 60s
7:27 pm
pam

it's called postural hypotension, krista.
7:27 pm
pam

That really is great, tyger!!!!!!
7:27 pm
tygerbryght

OTOH, today doc said my son's BP is √ľncontrolled" :( and he takes several meds
7:27 pm
tygerbryght

of course, he's seriously overweight, and diabetic
7:27 pm
pam

That can be scary
7:27 pm
Krista

yep, and they also referred to it as neurally mediated hypotension..not sure if there is a shade of difference there or if it's the same thing
7:28 pm
tygerbryght

yes, indeed. I worry about him
7:28 pm
Krista

brb in about 10 minutes..bottomless pit son needs food!
7:28 pm
tygerbryght

he claims to eat less salt than before, but he still eats quite a bit, by my standards
7:28 pm
pam

Hmmmm, never heard of that, krista...
7:28 pm
tygerbryght

I don't totally avoid salt; I just use it sparingly
7:29 pm
pam

perhaps it is relative, tyger?
7:29 pm
tygerbryght

dunno, pam
7:29 pm
tygerbryght

I'm gonna hafta go. getting late for pills

Hello EvaNadine!How are you? Welcome to the puzzle
8:11 pm
Jacula

Today's grid looks like one that has no words when you first see it. However, once your eyes settle, the words reveal themselves. It took me about 30 mins yesterday morning.
8:12 pm
Jacula

What, Eva?
8:12 pm
EvaNadine

the BF more or less ignored me all night tonight, and when i called him on it, he claims he wasnt.
how long do i let him stew before i stop being ticked off?
8:12 pm

My hubby ignores me almost every night!I don't mind because I ignore him babbling.How did he ignore you?
8:14 pm
Jacula

Eva - In all honesty I can't advise because I don't know the history, the story or what type of person he is. You know him best. You must do what feels right for you.

8:16 pm
EvaNadine

well, hes not working right now, so hes here alone all day. so i figure when i get home, he might actually want to hang out with me. (we live together)
but lately, hes been spending most of the evening in his "man cave" and i keep trying to draw him out, but since i dont have ideas for what to do, he pretty much stays in there...
8:16 pm
Jacula

'Night, phan. Our matching icons will now be parted. Parting is such sweet sorrow! LOL

Oh, I see, Eva. He may be a bit depressed if he's out of work and not feel quite the 'man' or 'the provider'. Maybe?

8:19 pm

Hello inge! How are you doing? Welcome to the puzzle
8:19 pm
EvaNadine

im all for him having his man cave...i just like to actually feel like he WANTS to spend time with me sometimes...
8:19 pm
Jacula

Eva - if he sees you nekkid often then maybe it's time to cover up a bit... dress up, if you know what I mean.;-)
8:20 pm

Hi Minver and all you Babblers. Cant stay, just wanted to post a butterfly for today
8:20 pm
evanonut

he's jobless, he feels a bit wounded by it i'm sure, i KNOW from experience, let him stew for a bit, that's what they need to do. once he wraps his brain around the problem properly, all will return to norma.
8:21 pm
EvaNadine

well, hes been jobless for 2 months now. thats not new, unfortunately, but my feeling ignored is...
8:21 pm
Jacula

The man cave is either the study or a garden shed here in UK. Since the study is my 'cave' and he hasn' yet built a shed to add to my 4 outsbuildings already in garden, the settee and the remote control & TV are P's man cave.
8:21 pm

The Rules is also good...if it feels like too much game playing...I know, but it's just human nature

I'm finished! My last word was ti 7/60 word.Easy grid
8:23 pm
Jacula

Eva - perhaps, if it's not the first time he's been out of work recently it's getting to him a bit? Like you say, once he's got through the 'nobody wants me' stage, his natural urge to get things sorted will kick in. Do you think you can hang on in there while he works through that?
8:23 pm
Krista

It is fine to tell him how you feel, just make sure you are not accusatory.
8:23 pm
Jacula

Congrats, min.
8:24 pm

Good advice, Krista.
8:24 pm
Minveryork

Thank you! I can help anyone with clues if they need.

i just dont think this is work-related. it was for a while, but he got past that.
i think hes just being "big dumb guy" tonight, and i think im gonna make him sweat for a while...
8:24 pm
Krista

Thanks, Jac..gotta use my degree somewhere.
8:25 pm
Jacula

Eva - you know him best.

I agree! Many times husband takes things the wrong way because he believes that I am being accusatory.

It's an easy thing to do when you feel wounded.

debating if i wanna play chess tonight before bed...
its a new thing we have been getting into, but im so annoyed tonight i dont think i wanna spend that much time with him...
8:26 pm
Jacula

Krista - you used that degree just by being a wife and mother, never mind a sibling, a child, a family member, a neighbour etc., etc.
8:27 pm
Jacula

Hmm - you two have been playing chess? A power game if ever there was one. Is this a new thing or something the two of you have always done?
8:27 pm
renfield

i always say "what did i do to tick you off this time baby!"
8:27 pm
EvaNadine

its new. we were looking for something to do together + we kinda took to chess...we are pretty evenly matched. :)
8:27 pm
Jacula

Hey ren. Yes, sometimes it pays to be direct. Mind you, by saying that you are putting the blame on yourself.
8:28 pm
Krista

More true than you know, Jac! That's part of what burns a lot of social workers out..we give in our personal lives then give on the job!

well, i guess id better get going...gotta get ready for bed...
8:31 pm
Krista

she throws off her clothes and gets the chessboard out...
8:31 pm
Jacula

Eva - If the b/f is feeling somewhat depressed and maybe a little unmanned now, this may or may not work.. like I say, you know him best. Spice up the chess game a bit by setting something that the winner wants as the prize. Alll fantasies and/or 'chores' to be written down in advance on small cards that are then shuffled and so neither of you know what's going to come out of the pack when the winnder picks it off the top of the pile.
8:32 pm

Get those wish cards written, the pair of you! Time to spice up your lives!:)
8:33 pm
Krista

I like that idea..then even the loser could win, if it's a good "chore."
8:34 pm
Jacula

Exactly, Krista. In fact, though I only just thought of it, I think I might have a go at that myself. The possibilities are endless.

No snow yet here in NY. We have just had flurries so far. I really wouldn't care if it did not snow at all here
8:56 pm
Jacula

Weather was fine in UK everywhere but where I am today, diem. Up here, over 300ft and level with the Russian Steppes, we have our own weather system. No kidding! Here, today, it was misty and half light for most of the day. 10 miles away, where Other Half works, the weather was clear.
8:57 pm

M6 and M5 were snowbound Sunday before last, diem. Not as in stopped, but it was a blizzard once you got into Worcs from Staffs.

Min - I was offered 'New Years' Eve in Times Square' by my Other Half, who'd been offered the trip by someone at work. I said, 'No, thanks.' I don't go out to New Year in Brum and can so no reason for 12 hours on a plane + all the hassle at airports each end to stand out in the cold in either city.

Hi, autumn.
9:04 pm

hi Jac. See you are talking about snow. Took me 1 1/2 hours to get home tonight ... because it never snows in Vancouver and people don't know how to drive in it.
9:05 pm
wednesday

snow? in vancouver? nothing in pitt meadows (yet)
9:05 pm
Jacula

autumn - you'd think it never snowed in UK either, due to lack of gritting, general unpreparedness of drivers and road authorities. Mind you, I guess last time we had major snow here was in the 1980s...
9:06 pm

cant imagine you grumpy far less old

about an inch in Richmond and big flakes now. It was raining (pouring) downtown at 5:00

o great. supposed to go christmas shopping tomorrow
9:07 pm
Jacula

However, re snow in Vancouver. When my relatives lived on Vancouver Island, I know they said they had no snow (the only real big shock they got was when Mt. St. Helens erupted and they felt the shock wave)... but my cousin used to go up into the mountains to ski. He got a major knee injury, eventually, from an accident pursuing that hobby. He's recovered now, though.

snow is pretty in pictures. most fools dont know how to drive and they panic and that's what causes all the hubbub

In UK, where we don't (or didn't) often work that far from our homes, we can take the option of walking.

snow ok slush yeuk!!

I think that driving in snow and on ice, and driving on motorways, should be part of the driving test.

okay - needing to concentrate on the grid if I want to finish it before bedtime. I have lived 40 years in Vancouver and 5 years in Ottawa. I spent more time stuck in snow traffic in BC than in ON.

slush IS YUK!, yes. Black or brown slush is bad for your clothes and yellow slush should be avoided at all costs.

that is so nice of her. And glad to hear she's a survivor, autumn, my aunt is not -- I never got to meet her.

Wednesday - what are you stuck on?
9:32 pm
Jacula

Boobs are so much part of a woman's life. You're not always aware of brushing against them, or their being there as you go through your everyday tasks of life... but they are they and they are part of you as a person, a woman and a sexual being. I imagined what I might be saying to my right boob on Sunday night, if I was facing an operation to remove it next day... ''My last day with you... we've been through some times together, haven't we?' stuff like that. Sounds stupid, I know. I put a really pretty bra on today... It's sized a bit small for me now and gave me the '4 boobs' look like Nell Gwynne had. However, I think I wanted to tell my boobs I appreciate them being there or something. If that sounds mad, I don't care. It's how I felt.
9:36 pm
Jacula

Got the site saved now. autumn. Will check for the boob pattern later. Thanks.x
9:37 pm

My partner also noticed and appreciated them just being there.

9:53 pm
Jacula

Who does your Rotti fancy? Ronon Dex? Phwoar! Erm... recovers self... Steve the Wraith is quite sexy. He look a bit like my daughter's b/f. Howwever, wheh I made the mistake of saying that to her, she said 'Back off from the boyfriend. MUM!@ Oh lol. I hope she realises I would never do that. Actually, I know she does know that; she said it for the comedy value. We're like that in this house!

Don't give her ideas., autumn with the wrestling stuff. It's all fake!
