thank you sweetie. that scar is 11 years old on my foot. (it took 2 years to heal completely from 3rd degree burns (they wanted to take it and i said NO!! period. i debreeded (sp) it myself)). my foot and toes were already swollen from driving and lousy road food. i took a nice skid into the hot tub and banged my swollen toes pretty good. i always worry about infection due to bad circulation from the severity of the damage to my foot.

When my son was in jail (weekend thing, speeding ticket, 120 mph), he came out saying that the old guys in his cell liked his grandpa's corny jokes... and learned how to play gin rummy... grrrrrrrr............

We were told that it was $100 a day to pay off bond, but, they were wrong. that was for THEIR time. This county goes by severity of the charge and how much they pay out on it. I'm just really surprised that it's so long for a first time offense, but, he's fine with it. He won't have probation or fines when he gets out. The lawyer told him this and said that the plea was his best bet, so he did and THEN received the sentence!! He didn't realize how long either, but, it's longer than what it would have been to keep him from probation when he gets out.

So, awhile ago, this last winter/spring, I talked with some folks at our local art museum about an idea incorporating cuisine and culture, how I'd love to teach some classes combining the two. Well, today I read in the paper that they are offering classes on the very same topic. As though it was something they thought of themselves. it's very disappointing because I thought these people respected me and took me seriously. I have volunteered there for years, not so much lately as I was away at cooking school out of town. But jeez.... I am soooooo tired of not being good enough or rich enough or cool enough for these pretentious people. and it hurts deeply. I thought they were friends.

Sweetie - You need not say anything to prove your worth to us. I don't even live near you, and yet I'd happily give you a big hug if I could. If your local towns folk don't appreciate you, it's only because they are silly folks that need to be beat upon the head and shoulders until they can think common sense :-)

Money, nor position proves worth as much as just having a big heart, and you have that.

Bob

Don't let fools,get you thinking you're not good enough. You are and you are head and shoulders above them.I find them dishonest and cheap and by no means friends. I do think I'd quietly let them know how dishonest I think they are and I wouldn't let them say a word, no arguments, yelling or screaming, just a quiet low voice. Then I'd turn on my heels and walk out and let them babble their explanations..Nor would I do anything to help out..I'd go about my business and find a way to help others learn from you on your time, in your way...You will find a way.

Hey Texasgirl, sorry to hear about your son ma'am!

Wyogal, Your not alone ma'am, I'm in the same boat, but my problem is the ladies.


I'm a gentleman, I got it all pretty much but a vehicle, and I don't cheat but yet it feels like I am very broken and undatable!
