rock, sounds like you and I played by the rules and had a very good set of parents to instill all the "right stuff" in us. Yes we paid our dues and now it is time to sit back and enjoy the rewards. One problem my parents had, being in the Depression, is that they never could enjoy life. They were so afraid it would happen again in their lifetime. They had a sizable estate when they passed away and it came to the kids. No enjoyment at all was/is felt because of how hard I know they worked so they could pass it on to us. We all encouraged them to go places but Dad said that after being in the Army for so long he hung up his traveling shoes. The lesson I learned from their lives was to enjoy each day to the fullest. I do too!!!
Nawwwww..........not from me and I am over 65, love life and have a very good one. Every night when I lay my head on my pillow I am a happy camper because my husband and I have worked hard to achieve what we have....never had to ask for a handout from any agency....always been able to provide for ourselves, don't complain about the way things are, and am living a good life. It doesn't bother me to get blamed.
Yes, I find them funny and fun to read but don't tell anyone I said that, OK? It sure breaks up my dull day when two or more get on a rant. Well depends on who is ranting. Some I don't bother with. Ho Hum.
Yes, erock, you are absolutely correct and unfortunately too much money is wasted on those students getting the scholarship money because they can't walk and chew gum at the same time but can carry a football. Such a waste of money when so many talented young people could benefit from a college education. Are you sure they can tie their shoes?
Yes, I have 2 granddaughters who recently graduated from a university. One is back now working on her MBA, while working for a large corporation and the other is off to law school. They both have made me very proud. I am a "child of the 60's" so to speak, when women were encouraged to stay home and have babies. Glad I didn't listen to that, instilled it in my daughter and she passed it down to them. We always want our children to achieve the highest they are capable of achieving.
I said "I AM ENJOYING YOUR EXCHANGES".....sorry...meant that to be YOUR as in her's and your's. I find them fun to read. Let me rephrase that -- "haha good ones VSU, I am enjoying your exchanges"...or how about.."haha...good ones you two, I am enjoying your exchanges." In other words, it gives me a laugh....something I enjoy - - laughing in this awful world we live in. OK? And let me tell you what gives me even more pleasure - - imagining what the person on the other end of the post looks like. Now that adds even more pleasure to my reading. For instance, sometimes when I read a volley like the recent one between you two, I imagine how the writers must look, whether they have an angry look on their face, or a smug one. On here I have imagined one poster to look like one of the California raisens from the old TV ad of years ago...the dancing one, remember? Now THAT makes me laugh. As I said, in this miserable world we live in, it is good to have something that can make laughter...for isn't the old saying "laughter is the best medicine"?
Yes, VSU, I fully agree with you. I personally don't care if a person wears a cap indoors...or drives a pickup. I own 2 of them (but no cap, sorry).
I agree rock, such an outpouring of anger today over something as simple as wearing a hat indoors or owning a pickup. I own 2, an SUV and a Jeep Wrangler...what does that make me? One thing I must comment on tho, rock, is about sending kids to universities...be specific on NOT sending them to ASU, please. Too many diploma mills in the south, too too many.
Excellent reply georgiagranny.....excellent!!
Now that is a good one erudite....hahaha.....am enjoying your exchanges.
