Our "best" friends (mostly her) decided to go on the attack against my husband, about things that he is not able to control. This was all done with the statement, "I'm just telling you this because we love you, and I'm trying to help you." He is hurt and angry, and so am I. That is all I can say about it, but believe me, it is not sunshine and roses in our house today.

Andy, a preposition tells you where something occurs. In, on, under, beneath...you get the picture. I can be confusing when you say, "the table on" instead of "on the table".

Barbara-Sending you Sunshine and Roses


Don't honor them with the presence of your company. I've had to do that on more than one occasion.

As I tell folks, this is not English class, tell me what it is you want to say, if I need clarification I will ask for it. If a pattern you use is funny, I may (or not) point it out and tell you why I think it's funny, hoping you see the funny, too!
Princess, I was not trying to any such thing. I was trying to be tongue in cheek. But I guess my Canadian English didn't translate that way.
