About Me

My photo
Four years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Regarding Comments

I just rejected my first comment. I suppose it was inevitable, given sufficient time. It linked me to a page that was peppered with the F-bomb. Not something that I'd have chosen to pollute my eyes with, thank you very much.

As Thumper's mama said, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." And as Ray Charles sang, "Don't you go a-messin' with my world."

In my world, women still talk like ladies.

Now if all y'all will excuse me, I've got to go put on my pearls and do a little dustbusting.

Good for you ,it's a vile word and there is nothing worse than hearing it as a constant stream which is too common here. If all we use are swear words we will lose the unique beauty of all the words they can't be bothered to learn.

Thanks. I also, sadly, rejected a comment on another post today. I don't care for a regrettably common abbreviation, because in my eyes the third letter rarely stands for goodness, or gracious.
