    Ok, since this is a CNN site, I will share this. I thought it was downright hysterical:

    in reply to RH: Going to visit my two wonderful daughters and my grandsons this Holiday and bask in familial warmth. Sounds trite to put it that way but it is still true and good. My cup does overflow!

    LOVE to you all! Here's to making it last throughout the year! Let kindness be your first impulse rather than only after thinking about it.

    I hope everyone is having a good day, and good pre-holiday if you celebrate Christmas.

    Tomorrow my fiance, my brother, and I are springing my Mom from her nursing home, going to a movie (probably Les Mis) and then to an all-you-can-eat sushi buffet place (with a kitchen menu to feed Mom from).

    Despite her inner resentment at being the only one left to staff the office, Stephanie gets an evil little smirk on her face at the thought o what she did to her colleagues' food in the common refrigerator...

      I'm going down memory lane on this one and the ever so pertinent caption.
      The "community" refrig is definitely in the cross hairs.....

      Be careful what containers you open (and HOW you open them) upon returning after verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry careful!

    Good morning all, and please accept all the best wishes at this time of year. I always find myself on Christmas Eve feeling a little bit of joy, some sadness at the year gone by, and a lot of gratitude for what I've got. Mostly that means a job I like, good health, lots of friends and all the blessings that life in modern day America brings. Despite our issues and infighting, I still believe we live in the greatest nation on the face of the Earth.

    I lack the articulation of my Bro RichHead, but suffice it to say, that I deeply care about those who frequent (and run) our Klatch. MANY thanks to all who keep this group going on a daily basis. This little corner of the interwebs is a quiet refuge (ok, sometimes not so quiet) where I can stop by and get a laugh, some insight, some food for thought (no pun), or just share a thought or problem. This year we have seen birth, death, joy, pain, loss, a wedding, new job opportunities and above all, hope. No small thing in these times. Much love and many thanks to all, and may 2013 bring us continued health, success and happiness.

      Please refrain from using such big words as articulation–sounds like something we could find in AleeD's Dungeon. It looks like Truck Stops of America and I have a Turkey Buffet lined up for Xmas Day. Bring it on....I'll be here until my hours catch up to me....Sigh.

      Stay safe out there, and find somewhere to grab a Christmas dinner! I know I'm a newbie (sort of) here so I will try not to be hurt by not making your list. :-)

      December 24, 2012 at 10:41 am |
      • RichardHead@Mary

        You DID make the list....I'm sending you a separate e-mail if these flunkies can ever get me unloaded after sitting here for 3 hours. I'll send it from the Truck Stop. Merry Christmas Ms P. Is Barbie Eli crying on Christmas Eve?

        December 24, 2012 at 11:00 am |
        • mary shannon

          Barbie Eli deserves to cry, as does the rest of the pathetic team. Two weeks in a row of bad play, guess there's always nexy year. But Dallas lost too...

        • Truth™@RichHead, Mary

          Not to put too fine a point on things, as I don't get to see too many NYG games, but between the hurricaine and Newtown, I am thinking that ANY team from the area would have a hard time keeping their heads in the game this past season. Scary times we are living in.

          December 24, 2012 at 11:49 am |
        • mary shannon

          I'm sufficiently ashamed, thanks for the reality check Bro.

          December 24, 2012 at 1:33 pm |
    • MicheleG™

      Love you, sweet thang! MERRY!

      December 24, 2012 at 12:06 pm |
      • RichardHead@MG

        Love YOU right back my dear. I hope you have a wonderful Holiday and Thank You.
