Thanks - I must have tried every other possibility. Sigh. Is everyone well this morning?
5:12 am
zoozzoom

I am well thank you, Matty. Hope you are well too?
5:12 am
dofith

yes indeed. And you? We're getting much coverage events in London.
5:13 am
dofith

so much coverage, I mean
5:15 am
zoozzoom

Yes there is a lot of coverage here too as to be expected. Another person has died from their injuries.
5:17 am
MollyL

Hi Zoom. How is your Dad doing?
5:17 am
sukee

Morning all. Yes, we are getting lots of coverage too. I have been in that area, as lots have obviously.
5:19 am
zoozzoom

Hello, Molly :-) WE have done lots of tests at the hospital and thankfully the cancer has not come out of the prostate. So can be managed. but he is stil porrly and we are trying to work out why he keeps fainting and other things that are happening.
5:19 am
zoozzoom

So in all better than what we were first told..but still a lot to do to make him in less pain. But he is more upbeat which is good.
5:20 am
zoozzoom

Many thanks for asking. It has been a nightmare for a whle now lol
5:21 am
sukee

Well, sounds like some positive out of a bad situation.
5:21 am
zoozzoom

Hello, sukee :-)
5:21 am
sukee

Hi zoo.
5:22 am
zoozzoom

Yes, too be honest it is not so much my dad who is that bad with all of what is going on..It is the upset it is causing to my mother & sister.
5:22 am
dofith

I was sad to see the picture of a certain young woman passing by, apparently unaffected. How can anyone possibly know what she was thinking? We don't need that kind of judgement - so hateful.
5:22 am
sukee

Yes, as a former cancer patient and helping a parent with cancer, it was easier being a patient.
5:23 am
dofith

Sorry for your troubles, zoom. All the best.
5:23 am
zoozzoom

Not seen that photo, Dofith, Papers will do anything to sell a paper.
5:24 am
sukee

I heard it mentioned on the net, you really never know what to believe.
5:24 am
zoozzoom

Good to hear you are a former, Sukee :-)
5:24 am
sukee

Yes, almost 20 years now.
5:25 am
zoozzoom

Wow! Now that is good to know.
5:25 am
mattygroves

I am indeed (sorry, multitasking)
5:25 am
zoozzoom

I was annoyed that they put the killer on the front pages of the paper. Probably what they wanted.
5:26 am
dofith

It was a random picture of an injured person lying there being helped, and she is walking past, complete with headscarf, looking at her phone. Some people have made comments about her apparent disregard - or worse. Good to see others jump in and call it for the uninformed garbage it is.
5:27 am
sukee

I was annoyed too that Donald Trump Jr. had the nerve to attack London's mayor.
5:27 am
zoozzoom

Somthing I have been trying to learn but doing it badly, Matty. Men...well me are not very good at multitasking lol
5:28 am
zoozzoom

Yes that was a quote that was made before the tragic killings and then used to make it seem like he said it afterwards, Sukee.
5:29 am
zoozzoom

Sorry to leave but I need to carry on with some work at parents. Have a great day everyone. And happy babbling!
5:29 am
sukee

Typical. He had no right whatever...
5:29 am
sukee

Take care

5:43 am

Just finished the a's - need any clues?
5:43 am
sukee

How about the ac 7 and 8?
5:45 am
dofith

ac - a 4 letter word for a measure of land minus last letter, then a 4 letter continent
5:46 am
sukee

Hi Nutty and pup.
8:18 am
evanonut

he'll be 3 on the 29th
8:18 am
Scrabbler

Labs are always puppies.
8:19 am
evanonut

i think he might be an old man actually
8:20 am
Scrabbler

Physically or spiritually?
8:20 am
evanonut

spiritually, the looks he gives me
8:20 am
Scrabbler

Some babies give me that look.
8:21 am
evanonut

i bet! my youngest niece could work for the secret service she has such a look
8:22 am
Scrabbler

Some babies look as if they have so much to say but their bodies just haven't developed to be able to do that yet.
8:23 am
evanonut

yep, good thing i don't have one. i'd be all like, just tell me already baby!
8:24 am
Scrabbler

Yesterday a 10 month old boy said hi to me. Blew me away. I was looking down at my computer and heard a little voice, realized it wasn't his 4 year old sister. He can already say 10 words--very early talker!
8:25 am
evanonut

so when do they normally start? i literally know nothing about such things.
8:25 am
Scrabbler

At 12 months babies usually say 1-3 words, such as mama, dada, baba.
8:26 am
evanonut

impressive then!
8:26 am
Scrabbler

He was so personable and sociable. I had a med student with me too.
8:26 am
evanonut

10 months and already more outgoing than me
8:27 am
EvaNadine

mornin all!
8:27 am
evanonut

hay-lo eva!
8:27 am
EvaNadine

allo, nutty!
8:27 am
Scrabbler

He hasn't had time to dislike people yet, Nutty. Give him time.
8:27 am
Scrabbler

Hi K's mama.
8:28 am
evanonut

hope he never does
8:28 am
bichon

somebody has a puppy?
8:29 am
EvaNadine

i expect i shall be known that way for quite some time to come, eh, Dr Scrabs?
8:29 am
Scrabbler

Arf, arf, bichon.
8:29 am
evanonut

if you call an almost three y/o lab a puppy bichon, yes
8:29 am
Scrabbler

Yes, Eva.
8:30 am
EvaNadine

nutty, our 3+ year old, 60+ pound husky mix is still referred to as puppy. ;)
8:30 am
evanonut

i guess that answers that eva! and graphite is my furbaby
8:30 am
bichon

I wish we could have a puppy again, but they are so much work [training]. At 70 I don't know if I am up to taking a puppy out at night
8:31 am
Scrabbler

Hey, Babblers, I wrote to Inge, long-time ElderBabbler and her daughter emailed me back yesterday. Inge has not been here in several years due to macular degeneration but I have still emailed with her. Now she has developed mild dementia and balance issues.
8:31 am
evanonut

oh my, i remember Inge!
8:31 am
EvaNadine

oh dear, im so sorry to hear.
8:32 am
Scrabbler

She is in her mid to late 80's now. She was able to enlarge the font on her computer so could read my emails.
8:33 am
evanonut

i always took her for younger, but i guess that meant she is young at heart.
8:33 am
Scrabbler

It is sad when our ElderBabblers move on (AnnieBrook) or cannot be here. Or when regular Babblers lose interest. *gasp*
8:34 am
evanonut

do i count as lose interest???
8:35 am
EvaNadine

i think i am one of the "oldest" (account-wise) babblers here. i have seen so many come and go...
8:35 am
EvaNadine

ive faded away a few times, myself, but i always come back. :)
8:35 am
evanonut

eva you were here they day i joined
8:35 am
Scrabbler

I do wish you would be here more frequently, Nutty.
8:36 am
Scrabbler

How did you discover Babble?
8:36 am
evanonut

I am sorry. Blame the ipad. Even the browser on this old computer totally freezes up if i let the screen saver start.
8:37 am
evanonut

Babble was listed on some website or blog or something as great free things to do on the internet.
8:37 am
Scrabbler

I was using StumbleUpon and had listed word games as an interest.
8:38 am
EvaNadine

i think a friend of mine was babbling (that was long before we had paid accounts) and turned me onto it, knowing i was a word-nerd.
8:38 am
evanonut

i remember stumbleupon! i think theres an app for it now, but i don't have it. my husband does.
8:39 am
EvaNadine

i have since turned a few others onto it, though none are quite as chatty as i am. ;)

8:42 am
Scrabbler

Yes, the two of you were funny. And you changed your flags as you traveled.

I need to call the hospital soon to check on my sister.
8:44 am
evanonut

i hope all is well still. it sounded good what i read yesterday.
8:45 am
Scrabbler

Yesterday her husband visited for 30 minutes. She had a headache (surprise) and wanted to sleep so she sent him home. I am not sure if it is worth driving 50 minutes to the city for her to tell me the same thing.
8:48 am
evanonut

yeah, she may very well just want to rest again. i spent one night in the hospital and was annoyed by all visits but husband. besides, who needs a visitor for one night?
8:49 am
bichon

I saw a college student playing and was hooked from then on

Hi CJ
8:52 am
RoundBarn

scrabs, I watch the people, wish I could meet you and some--what has happeened to crossy? lost interest? too busy? I liked his word for the say--
8:53 am
Scrabbler

Crossy grew tired of the bickering and bullying on the chat. I do too, but I retreat or lurk when the bullies appear.
8:54 am
evanonut

there is that on occassion
8:54 am
bichon

Amen to that
8:55 am
RoundBarn

me too-- I refrain from retorting--another I like is Kaplan the magn--since I love the book and she quoted Alice a while back--fainting in coils--lives near boston but no way of emailing her--
8:56 am
Scrabbler

RB, I am not a confrontational person, so I ignore bullies. Some ElderBabblers have confronted the bullies though.
8:57 am
evanonut

don't see a point bullying
8:57 am
RoundBarn

my kids put me on to babble--they won't let me on my facebook till I finish the current book now 2 years late--but it's moving again. We'll all be in Vt again this summer--there is a grma I think she calls herself in Middlebury--
8:57 am
Scrabbler

Kaplan the Magne is a wise and kind person.
8:58 am
Scrabbler

I am glad you are here, RB. I enjoy your website. I have a pen drawing of a round barn from Shelburne Farms in Burlington, VT.
8:58 am
CiociaJudy

I mostly lurk these days unless I see a familiar "face" in the chog.
8:59 am
CiociaJudy

And I enjoyed the two Babble meets I attended
8:59 am
bichon

Hi Judy
8:59 am
RoundBarn

that is obvious. Maybe some day I will find a way to tell her I appreciate her. We need to install an efficient environmental toilet at the camp in vt--this summers project!
8:59 am
CiociaJudy

Hello everyone! Morning here. Working but Babbling. Shhhh
9:01 am
Scrabbler

I have met nrkii, Doren, Owl, jrb, Hego, Featherbee, and uusue, over 3 separate meet-ups.

CiociaJudy

You're definitely on my "meet up" list Scrabs!!
9:01 am

9:02 am
RoundBarn

scrabs, AFTER the book, I want to see your art work and show you some of my daughter's original art--the one who died. Rasta's birthday yesterday--I made her a Where's Waldo book called where's Gillian--full of pix of her when she was 7, some of them--her--are hard to find. It seems lost in the mail.
9:02 am

I am driving to Acadia NP in late Aug, but my friend will not tolerate me meeting with a Babbler. My friend is an alpha female bossy boss, but we have fun biking, hiking, and kayaking.
9:04 am

9:06 am
RoundBarn

eva, my four daughters' names are Damaris, Megan, Gillian, and Elspeth. When we named Megan it hadn't caught on here yet. Gillian is Rastapopolous and she comes on here infrequently to tell about a hard word--she is fabulous and now she knows what her present will be--

Hi Byzantine. I haven't seen you in a while. How are you today?
9:09 am

10:26 am

re hillary: i have been a fan of Hillary since 1997. Somehow people expect her to be better than all her male counterparts. She's a politician. Things she was demonized for, example, the state dept email drama, are the exact same things that are currently being done by the 45 administration. As a feminist, I would never, i repeat, never vote for Trump. He is an incompetent boob who spends his time bloviating in a manner that can barely be understood. I could make a list, but this is babble, so walking away again. I was hoping I'd been gone long enough before.

bonkler

If articles of impeachment are exercised against the President and his agents for acting in collusion with a foreign power to subvert the election, then the entirety of the presidency would be invalidated. As a result, the Trump executive would or at least should envelop Pence. With that in mind, the order of succession would place Speaker Ryan in the oval until an unprecedented constitutional crisis is resolved. It could mean a new election with a pro-tem President. It will institutionally cripple America's ability to rule itself and the breadth of potential charges that might arise is daunting to imagine.

pen i don't understand the second part of that clue?
10:52 am
MLFAN17

hi bonk
10:52 am
helensgirlkid

It's not really clear that Pence was kept in on all the goings on - it's hard to say which would be worse, Pence or Ryan!
10:52 am
cybernan

I thought Ryan was part of the collusion, bonkler
10:53 am
penquis

A brouh*** is a big to do....a commotion...
10:54 am
redshoes

Pa 6 -- an outcast. Sounds like a flesh eating fish.
10:54 am
cybernan

pa 6 = someone who is shunned
10:54 am
penquis

Congrats, mixi!....What level are you playing?....i just fnished a 3.0 forty and older season....now going to play an 18 and older season with the same team...
10:54 am
bichon

bonkler, you have agood grasp of American politics
10:54 am
cybernan

gi 7 please?
10:54 am
rubyfoo

Pence is much moree right-wing ideologue and women's rights, gay rights and voting right wouldall be at risk
10:54 am
helensgirlkid

Yes - but have you seen what Ryan is like?
10:55 am
cybernan

ryan is a smart trump - scary
10:55 am
MLFAN17

cyber it ends in not you but **
10:55 am
rubyfoo

I think Ryan has been lobotomized
10:55 am
MLFAN17

ty for pa 6
10:55 am
helensgirlkid

Well, yes - but that doesn't keep him from signing things!
10:56 am
rubyfoo

And Pence is a robot, programmed by Bnnon
10:56 am
bichon

Maybe I should move to Israel
10:57 am
cybernan

I think ryan is just biding his time waiting for an opportunity to advance his own agenda
10:59 am
rubyfoo

A Moroccan friend asked me if I would move to Israel, but I'm too old to move again
10:59 am
cybernan

gi 7 please? -- last 2 letters doesn't help
11:00 am
penquis

Gi 7....soldiers _ not your leg _ myself....
11:00 am
cybernan

ty pen - great clue
11:00 am
bonkler

Ryan was never a Trump guy and there have been no allegations made regarding the congressional and senate races. Invalidating the executive would have to include Pence as part of that corrupted election. There'd be little choice but to place Ryan in the oval. I imagine it would also destroy the Republicans in 2018 mid-terms. The houses would be tasked with the constitutional crisis, hearings and prosecutions. The Watergate hearings essentially nullified Ford's time in office.
11:00 am
cybernan

and a new word for me
11:02 am
evanonut

eva, you're welcome, learned that one from pam. fell instantly in love with it.

Too many As in this grid...
11:05 am

"Frack" should be a word. I use it all the time. :D
11:07 am
redshoes

Frickety-Frack. Stuff like that. ;)
11:08 am
wvteach

the fracking industry has been a controversial issue in this areaa for many reasons
11:08 am
penquis

Yes...and it IS a word...
11:08 am
redshoes

See, it is a word.
11:08 am
redshoes

I just tend to use it as an expletive. heh
11:08 am
evanonut

short for hydraulic fracturing though, so i guess i forgive it not being in the grid.
11:09 am
penquis

It's in Dictionary.com....
11:09 am
MollyL

What? There is politics talk here and no one is complaining? Did hell freeze over last night?
: D
11:11 am
bonkler

Enable doesn't spend much time updating. Frack is a word by common usage, email isn't in Enable either.
11:11 am
redshoes

Just trying fracking to ignore it Molly. Ha.
11:11 am
redshoes

*to fracking ignore it.
11:12 am
MollyL

I'll say the same thing here I say everywhere else. If you are not happy with the way things are, make sure you are doing something to change it. And complaining on the internet doesn't count.
11:13 am
evanonut

true true molly, and do you know none of my reps are answering their phones. so i fax them with resistbot. i will be heard gosh darnit.
11:15 am
redshoes

Seriously, though, I figure people can choose to chat politics and I can choose to ignore it, just like any other topic. And I agree with Molly. To be fair, I also find it kind of fascinating to read what people have to say when among intelligent company, such as the Babble chog.
11:16 am
rubyfoo

This feels like a safe place to express our views
11:16 am
redshoes

Agreed rubyfoo.
11:17 am
rubyfoo

Nobody is force to read it or participate
11:17 am
mkg

hi all.
11:18 am
MollyL

There are no rules for this chat forum so I say any topic is up for discussion. As has been previously stated, people can feel free to turn off chat if the discussion at hand is not to their liking.
11:18 am
rubyfoo

I'm sorry for typos, but I'm lying down and the laptop keeps slipping
11:19 am
redshoes

Agreed again. As long as a convo doesn't interfere with Babble-related convo, chat away.
11:21 am
redshoes

Heading over to sudoku for a bit. Later skaters.
11:21 am
MollyL

To be fair, there are a lot of people who are not big fans of the constant cluing in chat, so everyone has their likes and dislikes.
11:21 am
penquis

It is what it is... ;o)
11:21 am

I find having friends across the political Spectrum interesting
11:22 am

Oh no, Pen is using buzz-word phrases. Next she will be saying "at the end of the day" and "I just wanted to reach out to you"

11:24 am

11:24 am

I used to write for a political blog. Glad I quit, I'd never be able to sleep.

6:44 pm

Self-handicapping??
6:47 pm
MollyL

Does that mean thinking bad thoughts when bad thoughts are not necessary?
6:48 pm
Bugsaw

I think it is when you avoid something saying, I would have been successful if I tried, I just choose not to try. My eldest son was a master at it.
6:49 pm
hurshy

yeah - what bugsaw said. i just tried something and got shot down. makes me wish i had not bothered trying.
6:51 pm
hurshy

cause you know, people say, "you never know until you try" like it's a good thing. but it's only a good think the 10% of times you try and succeed, and it sucks the other 90% of the time.
6:51 pm
hurshy

*thing
6:52 pm
Bugsaw

don't let other people's opinions get you down, hurshy. You still learned something -- that way didn't work. Just try it again another way
6:52 pm
hurshy

it's not even their opinions
6:53 pm
hurshy

i applied for a job only to be told that they are "most likely" (read: definitely) going to hire an internal candidate. and i'm like, well what did you POST it for then? i worked for like four hours on the freakin cover letter for it, all for nothing. it's not like they have a union and would be required to post jobs because of that.
6:54 pm
MollyL

I can't keep up with all the "new terms".
That used to be referred to as "self-sabotage"
6:54 pm
hurshy

and they already know me there, and i felt like, i really NEED that "in" in order to get hired, because i have such a lack of self-confidence, i need the advantage of people who have seen that i'm good. i can't sell myself in interviews. i need someone else to believe in me and encourage me, not be convinced by me that i'm good.
6:54 pm
Bugsaw

that is disappointing for sure. I am sorry that happened to you. I had it happen lots of times but it just means you wouldn't have liked working with those types anyway
6:55 pm
hurshy

no bugsaw, i don't know why they did that particular thing but in general i do like the people
6:56 pm
hurshy

but yeah, self-sabotage, same thing mollz
6:56 pm
cybernan

when my daughter reached her 30's she thanked me one day for my standard response to "I can't", which was "How do you know if you don't try". As she used to stomp off as a teen whenever I said that, I was flabbergasted --- so a double message there keep trying and never give up!
6:56 pm
hurshy

i guess i think of that more as doing something, but doing it in such a way that CAUSES you to fail
6:56 pm
Bugsaw

you didn't self-sabotage, hurshy. they were less than honest
6:57 pm
hurshy

i know i didn't. i'm saying i wish i HAD self-sabotaged by not applying.
6:57 pm
hurshy

cause it hurts too much.
6:57 pm
MollyL

Hursh, didn't you just move to a new area of the country? Sometimes it is hard to find new work in that situation if you did not already set something up.
6:58 pm
Bugsaw

if you hadn't applied you would have always wondered if you would have got the job and been even more unhappy with yourself.
6:58 pm
hurshy

we moved in august 2015. i have been pursuing an MA, working part-time, and am now wrapping up my degree and having to do the job search.
6:59 pm
MollyL

Sorry, I guess I don't get the difference between self-handicapping and self-sabotage.
6:59 pm
hurshy

and it's just... been very stressful since Jan 1... and now that that job isn't an option, that means i DEFINITELY have an unknown period of continued stress instead of maybe getting settled quickly and happily.
6:59 pm
Bugsaw

I don't interview well either, hurshy but I know when I can do the job.
6:59 pm
hurshy

there probably isn't one molly - sometimes i imagine a nuanced distinction that doesn't exist
7:00 pm
hurshy

yeah i know i'm really good. but i really hate to try to convince other people of it. i'm like, just talk to my references, don't talk to me at all.
7:00 pm
cybernan

Hurshy it could be they were required by law to advertise the job. In Canada, jobs at federally or provincially funded workplaces must advertise available positions, whether they can be filled internally or not. (hospitals, universities, colleges, etc)
7:01 pm
hurshy

this is a private company, i am pretty sure they aren't required to.
7:01 pm
origami

It is hard hurshy ... I have been applying for a new job without a lot of success. I get to the second interview point usually and then nothing. It can be hard on you.
7:01 pm
hurshy

they aren't funded by anything but people paying.
7:02 pm
hurshy

don't worry guys, i am not expecting you to make me feel better, i just wanted to vent
7:03 pm
MollyL

Self-sabotage...inflicting injury on yourself by placing yourself in a situation where failure is predicted...Self-handicapping seems to be the same thing
7:04 pm
hurshy

lol molly, you are very determined to figure this thing out :)
7:05 pm
hurshy

the G's are Grumpy
7:05 pm
Bugsaw

when applying for work, failure is not predicted, just a possibility.
7:05 pm
hurshy

in that i can only find 2/3 of them
7:05 pm
MollyL

No, I just think it is a matter of semantics. Nan, our job postings and federal requirements are not the same as Canadian ones.
7:06 pm
hurshy

but this makes it sound like simply not trying would NOT be considered self-handicapping, then, which i thought it would be.
7:07 pm
MollyL

Failure is not predicted...depends on what job you apply for and how qualified you are and what the job posting requirements are.
7:08 pm
hurshy

failure IS predicted if you don't apply. it's guaranteed!
7:08 pm
MollyL

Again, it's semantics.
7:08 pm
hurshy

oh, random other topic - scrabbler or any other medical babblers around?
7:09 pm
Bugsaw

I am with hurshy, but yes, it is all semantics.
7:10 pm
MollyL

Hursh, you sound well qualified for the kind of job you had in Connecticut. I'm sorry you are having trouble finding work in your new area.
7:10 pm
hurshy

i HATED my job in connecticut!
7:11 pm
MollyL

Well then, here's to you finding something better where you are now.
7:12 pm
hurshy

it isn't that i'm having trouble. i'm just starting to look, now. and i saw that one and it seemed like my dream come true, and i was just so hoping that that could be it and drastically shorten my job search and my stress could end quickly.
7:13 pm
hurshy

the ending of my degree program has just been a stressful period as well, so i feel like, ACK! i just can't handle moving from that to now the stress of the job search, and like, zero rest in between - in fact, some overlap.
7:14 pm
hurshy

name that proper noun! the land the Pharisees looked down on
7:15 pm
Bugsaw

Samaria
7:15 pm
hurshy

ding ding ding!
7:15 pm
Bugsaw

I only knew that because of the story
7:15 pm
hurshy

'tis a good enough reason.
7:16 pm
cybernan

thought sa 4/9 was a proper noun too --- either a tall ship or a scotch!
7:17 pm
Bugsaw

I think it is the style of ship, nan
7:17 pm
cybernan

the one that was moored at Greenwich before it burned down?
7:18 pm
Bugsaw

not sure about that. I just picture the ship on the bottle. ;)
7:19 pm
cybernan

yes that is the one --- the Cutty Sa4/8 was written on the stern
7:20 pm
cybernan

sa 6-7 please?
7:21 pm
Bugsaw

just looked it up, nan. the word is a Scottish word for shirt
7:21 pm
Bugsaw

take a vowel out of the proper noun I guessed
7:21 pm
cybernan

was amazed when we toured the ship that anyone would cross an ocean in such a tiny little tub
7:22 pm
zoozzoom

Same as the word written @ 7:15 but with out the 'i' then plural.
7:22 pm
Bugsaw

Me too. Those sailing ships were puny
7:23 pm
cybernan

ty zoom
7:25 pm
hurshy

funny how sometimes my proper nouns are so dangerously close to grid words
7:25 pm
hurshy

didn't realize it, of course, when i did it
7:27 pm
zoozzoom

No worries :-) On the positive side of it. It made it easier to clue :-)
7:32 pm

mornin' all. zooz, did you see my email a while ao?
7:32 pm

7:33 pm
zoozzoom

No sorry, Rose, Have been busy with father being very ill at the moment. So have not checked emails for a while...Will check in a minute.
7:34 pm
grannyrose

okay, mate. sorry your Dad not well. is he better now?
7:36 pm
zoozzoom

Just checked it, Rose. Not sure if I can make it. Very hard to plan ahead as I am rounf d parents every day at the moment.
7:37 pm
zoozzoom

No he is still rather ill. Thankfully the Prostate cancer has not come out of the prostate so that can be managed. But he is still fainting and is very fragile at the moment.
7:38 pm
grannyrose

okay. not there until early July.
7:38 pm
hurshy

how old is he?
7:38 pm
grannyrose

oh, zooz. how worrying for you and your Mum.
7:38 pm
zoozzoom

Mother & sister are besides themselves..which is harder to handle than I thought it would be.
7:39 pm
zoozzoom

He is 84 years old, Hurshy.
7:39 pm
hurshy

that's a lovely number, 84
7:40 pm
zoozzoom

I am sure he would tell you he would prefer it being the other way round LOL
7:40 pm
hurshy

well, yes, 48 is lovely too
7:40 pm
hurshy

any multiple of 12 is bound to be a nice number
7:42 pm
zoozzoom

He has high blood pressure too, Rose and has terrible shakes which he can not control which makes drinking a nightmare for him.
7:42 pm
hurshy

can he use straws?
7:42 pm
uusue2

Many hugs to you, zooz!!!
7:42 pm
zoozzoom

He rufuses, Hurshy. He is a very stubborn man!
7:42 pm
zoozzoom

Refuses*
7:43 pm
hurshy

what if you buy him a fancy one?
7:43 pm
grannyrose

poor man. poor all of you. how upset he must be to be causing so much alarm around him.
7:43 pm
zoozzoom

((Uusue)) Thank you.
7:43 pm
uusue2

Oh, zooz, that all sounds so familiar! Just lost my very stubborn 95-year-old dad in January. Hope things improve soon.
7:44 pm
cybernan

maybe one of those travel mugs that won't spill when tipped over
7:44 pm
grannyrose

will hold all of you in my prayers, zooz.
7:45 pm
zoozzoom

We have all offered different types of cups but he said he will use his fave mug and that is it. He just has it filled a quarter of the way.
7:46 pm
grannyrose

ttfn. {{zooz and his family}}
7:46 pm
cybernan

*!*~*!*
Thanks for the help
7:46 pm
zoozzoom

Thanks, Rose. He seems to be fine with it all. He says when his time is up it is up. But my mum & sister are not doing too well. And I have to keep telling them it is his decision to make not theirs.
7:46 pm
hurshy

i don't understand that kind of stubbornness. i mean, nobody LIKES having to do things because of illness or age. i don't LIKE having to be on meds, but i still take them.
7:48 pm
zoozzoom

No I do not either, hurshy. But that is just the way he is.
7:48 pm
zoozzoom

Bye , Rose. Sorry I did not see your email earlier.
7:48 pm
hurshy

what about... like... if you'll use the straw, then, what you get to drink with it could be (beer, wine, favorite bev)!
7:48 pm
zoozzoom

Okay time for me to go to bed. sorry for the rant.
7:49 pm
hurshy

you didn't rant
7:49 pm

9:22 pm
hurshy

oho, stop your thinking, my monkeys finally succeeded!
9:22 pm
JBsAnno

Okay, there's also a th5/6 combo right after it, adding that "t" to a very hurtful word. Do you have that?
