Y’all first of all you can post in the most recent Open Forum or ANY OPEN FORUM at any time. It doesn’t have to be on the top of the page. Sometimes things get busy, but that doesn’t mean people won’t hear you. If you scroll all the way up and click on the OPEN FORUM link you can vent at any time. I think most of the regulars click the follow post and follow comments link on on each post after commenting.
ANYWAY. For the old timers, Remember the cat lady who kept saying things like she only had one taco to eat for the next month or whatever? All y’all wanted to send money and help her out but she claimed she was on disability and could not accept money or gifts? Then, I went in to surgery and suddenly there was some uproarious riot? Well some person showed up on my Twitter who was asking how to make a meal out of six dollars or something. I suggested what my mama taught me. A can of blackeyed peas and some fried cornbread. She always told me that if I had that in my house I would always have a meal. And I love it, with some fried onions in the skillet with the fried cornbread.
So, I am a sucker and sent this person a very small amount of cash. The second I hit send, I suddenly thought of that commenter with the black cat avatar. Because I realized her Paypal account was in her profile. When I first got my driver’s license I gave a few buck to one of those people on the exit ramps of the interstate. I felt like I had done a good thing. But my mama assured me that “those people” made more money than I did begging on the corners. I confess I still did it from time to time during the pandemic. So I immediately felt like I go sucked in to another scam. Let’s hope she really could use a couple of bucks.
Also, I tweeted about the relentless intrusions on Brian Laundries family by the media and idiots on Twitter. TWO FAMILIES are grieving. And it does appear that their son killed Gabby, they BOTH lived in that house. His parents clearly cared about both of them. They were grieving Gabby first, and then their own son. This has been going on outside their house for MONTHS. They did nothing wrong. It seems their lovely neighbor across the street was paid to let the journalists hang out there. It is time for them to go home. And leave these parents to grieve.
Um and so what is new with you guys?
