As you noted in another thread, Ess, sometimes there are those who accuse others of personal attacks when there is nothing to back it up.

But your point is well taken. I’m sure our Alley sparrings might look more like personal insults than the rib jabs, tongue in cheeks, or teasing gotchas they are often meant to be to those not aware I’ve made it very plain to Balladeer in another forum, that I do indeed respect his “knowledge, intelligence, experience and insight”, among other things.

See what I mean, Ess, can’t help but admire Balladeer for his quick and clever repartee.

     J.M., you have a silver tongue, and I think poor Mike has fallen for your charms.  It appears that at some time in his past he fell for your patter and may have flirted, however briefly, with the light, before realizing that your enthusiasm was for the greater good for everybody.  The shock was probably crushing.  Ess probably needs to understand the history of these things.  And you, my blond haired beauty, you need to understand the power your inherent blondness brings you and must guard it carefully lest you loose unwitting havoc upon the world.  It is but a cautionary tale, but one that needs be taken closely to heart.  And Mike, surely you can put your era of bitterness and devastation behind you.  Conservative guys are supposed to be able to tough this sort of heartbreak out without, sob, cracking under the pressure.

     Essorant, let this be a lesson to you, Man.  Buck up!

See, told you Bob was in a mood. Just didn't expect him to be quite that random.

cracking under the pressure, Bob? In real life, perhaps that could happen, although you won't find anyone in my life who would believe it.....but on an internet site? Please....

*chuckle*

I love and admire you both so much.

(Pardon me if I cough, laugh, and pee all at the same time)

but it seems to me that Mike accuses Jenn of doing what Mikes does to Jenn, and then vice-versa?

Jenn? I do happen to agree with you on this one-I have no idea why our new President gets demerits when gross invalidations of the constitution were evident previously?

But I think that precedents (and ante-precedents) can be undone. (Let's hope so, anyway.)

Mike? You know I love and respect you, but you only see disrespect when it happens to you--and I didn't see anything that was disrespect from Jennifer. She just lobbed back your balls. (Um, so to speak.)

This might have been said before, because I don't actually read this crap, so I wouldn't know, but I do believe that United States of America is at a crossroads, of sorts. Sort of like a family, where gramps and grammaw, remember when, and they have a say, and Mom, and Dad, when they get along? They both have a say, and the kids get to say something too.


And I have lost friends because I wouldn't speak up. I didn't want to be divisive. I happen to think that's the worst thing that can happen to a family--is no, not argument, but SILENCE.

So thank you Jenn, and thank you Mike.

I have learned so much from reading...

     Not a bit of cracking up at all, Mike, it was just that the same day I got fitted for this here Hook after loosing me hand from boarding that rich freighter we took, me right eye began to ich something terrible.  The patch was just an accident, because I hadn'r gotten me scratch reflex under control yet.  I'll tell you about how I learned to sing counter-tenor some other time.  Life's difficult when yer a pirate, ya know, especially with them thar private insurance companies telling me that the eye work was because of this here pre-existing condition with the hook.

     Still hasn't changed that much, from what I hear.

It's not you so much that bothers me, Captain Bob. It's that parrot on your shoulder.

     Har!  It's not me parrot atoll, Buckaneer.  It's the pie rates of Penn's Aunt's up in Philly Delphia.  They broke the Baking cartel monopoly on  those precious pies and caused the Revolution all by themselves.  Took a while though.  Har.

     Also Har Har Har.

     My dear Jennifer, a day without Mike is a day without Funshine.  

     If I have upset you, however, I am truly sorry..  I know you can and  do stand up for yourself.  It's my way of giving folks a breather when I see things have gotten bruising, and it looks like we don't know any other way of backing off.  Think of it as throwing a flash/bang into a hostage situation.  Everybody gets rattled enough so that when talk restarts we can all remember we're friends again.  It even works from time to time.

      Now, as for Mike. . . .  Truth is, after the light and loud sounds clear, he likes a goofy fat laugh as much as everybody else.  He simply forgets it when he gets too serious.  Don't tell he though, he hates it when people know he's got a sense of humor.  Spoils the image, Oz the great and terrible.

Speaking of which, where is our little funshine maker, I’ve been a kinda worried about him. You don’t suppose a gator got him on the 9th hole or something?

Nah, not the least bit upset. If I had been, I would have said you boys instead of you guys.

I think serenity did the flash/bang thing with her cough, laugh and pee line. Kind of hard to top that no matter how pretty you think your old polly is.

Whoa. Wait a minute.

Jennifer...is blonde?

Really?

I'm more impressed now. *laughing*

Don't worry Jen, I'll save you from Bill Maher. Me and Wanda Sykes--we got ya covered.

And *ahem* My apologies for my previous indiscretion, Ron. It's a medical condition, LBL. I know because I saw it on a tv commercial. I can apparently get medication for this now. I'll axe my doctor if it's right for me.

Thanks for your support, serenity.  Yep, one really has to work a lot harder when one has a handicap like inherent blondness. Anyway, Wanda, Sykes OMG, can’t decide whether I’d rather have her as a mother or a wife.
