@wandeljw,
I agree. It's a form of stupidity to be a knee-jerk anything. Frankly, I can't read The Nation without some discomfort anymore because I can predict their position on anything: I feel like a member of their choir. It's just that conservative news/opinion outlets are worse, far worse. Is that another, perhaps more subtle, knee-jerk response?

@wandeljw,
Wandeljw, that's why he put down "Independent" on political forms.

I love that he managed to antagonize both liberals and moderates (not to mention far-right radicals) with his rational, literate arguments.

@Diane,
Thinking of you today. Wondering how you, the menagerie and the garden are doing.

@ehBeth,
yep, went out to the garden with Maddie, she's just had a haircut, reminded me of SallyDawg - and red poppies - a change from Bobs oranges - was having a little natter to him.

Diane is getting a new computer.

I am answering as I'm not clear that she can, don't mean to intrude.

Oh dear, this is a shock. I came back to visit with you a2k people, but mainly to see if anything new, good or bad, happened to Dys and Diane. And, so, I know now that what I expected is true. Dys is no longer among us, at least his body isn't. Even if he didn't believe it (don't know what he believed), the spirit lives on.

Loved that guy in his crazy hat, the whole story of his meeting Diane, and, whoppo, love at first sight. How lucky you are, Diane, to know such a love, at 60! Brave, too, up and leaving that man after 32 years.

I think you'll be just fine, lovely lady. Look forward to those stories of Dys's life.

@edgarblythe,
indeed.

I'm making some baked french fries for dinner.

my last conversation with him was about the difference between baking them, and frying them.

we both missed the oily ones.

I haven't stayed on top of this thread, so maybe this question has already come up. Do we have a date for the September ceremony yet? Now that it's August, I'd like to start with travel plans. Also, I have to go to Germany in September, and I don't want the two trips to step on each others' toes.

@Thomas,
My computer crashed a couple of weeks ago, Thomas. I haven't heard anymore about Bob's friends coming to Albuquerque in Sept. I understand that finances are even tighter than ever and it is probably a hardship for most.

Sorry, it was a lovely idea.

@Diane,

Hugs to Diane, and other friends who may be looking in.

Fiona and I are hoping to have a week in Italy around then. We never seem to plan anything in enough time, but it may happen despite that.

@Diane,
Finances here are tight, but if it were on a weekend, I would still try to come. I've just been waiting to hear a date from you, Diane.

@edgarblythe,
Yesterday, I called and left a message for Diane to call me, but she hasn't call yet. I will try again today.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
I talked to Diane yesterday. She's OK but working through her loss of Bob. She is going to drive up to Colorado next week to spend a few days with members of her family. This will be good for her.
