: I can feel the adrenaline pumping and so I really should go take a little jog. Instead, I'm going to post. Your bad luck! :)
: First of all, Vita asked you all to DISCUSS, not to LIKE, the book. A momentous event in the life of a friend ... largely ignored. Not only that, set as it is in the 18th century, it is relevant to the discussion topics of this Board. Am I surprised? Hell no.
: As I mentioned in a post a few days back, I know exactly how Vita feels. Apparently so do others. In the past, we've received E-Mail from individuals who felt slighted because they felt no one ever responded to their posts. Some people take this all very seriously. I never did know what to tell these folks, other than that I could empathize. Take my post of yesterday ... 3 distinct topics that I thought would be of major interest to you all. Discussion generated? 0 Or, my post about this day in history ... the tragic attack on Little Thunder's Brule village. Discussion generated? 1
: What to do? We can guide. We cannot control - This is a recurring issue; I hear myself having said this before - I've learned to live with it. This is something I could elaborate on greatly & it ties in with my rather rambling, apparently pointless, post of 3 Sundays ago ... but, I won't. Instead ...
: I ask the rhetorical question: Has this Board outlived its purpose?
WOW, Hey Boss, I've Been Missin A Lot Lately!
You know sometimes I don't say much cause I'm too busy learnin!
This Board ALWAYS amazes me...You know ME,it don't take much! But all kidding aside sometimes I feel like I'm out of my league here with some of the info flying threw the posts. But I have to say that I always learn something new and wonderful everyday and I certainly never tire of the truly unique people as well as characters that appear and add color and joy to my sometimes painful day.
Please don't ask yourself what's this all for or why bother...I guess with all different people making all different exchanges it must get difficult at times but to those who know YOU and love this company of souls,this has become as important as coming home. A Comfortable place to feel accepted..like a dear friend or a much loved family member.Sorry if I'm Slobberin and maybe I'm Missing Your Point. I'm just hearing something here I'm not sure of where it's going, so I'm all ears if you wish to elaborate! You know I love you!
Stay Strong with Love, Kathleen
