Lee, that reminds me of my school-days, when I struggled mightily with mathematics, and was lucky to scrape by with a C or even a D, and yet had a father who was a physicist and a brilliant mathematician. That was the source of many a conflict in my adolescence.

Try to be patient with your son, especially if you know he is trying his best. Good luck!

I'm setting up web sites at work so that people all over the world can work on a project or proposal. The engineers I work with don't like to go online (what's wrong with them?). Yesterday I had to tell two of them to "get your scrawny asses in there!"

I haven't ever met these guys to know the state of their asses, and now I hope I never do!!

I have a happy brokieism and an unhappy one. When my daughter, Front Ranger Jr., was a toddler, she loved to talk on the telephone. Whenever she would see a telephone, she would start muttering "call buddies" under her breath. We were visiting a friend one time and she spied a phone and started in on her chant. I told her, "no you can not call your buddies right now" which caused my friend to break out in fits of laughter!

The sad one--my husband has informed me that he'll be happy to leave me alone and has moved into the guest room (and I'm just now at an age where I don't have to worry about taking precautions!) But I still have my cat to keep me company.  :'(

Oh, Lee, that's so sad. I'm sorry for you. I hope things will be better soon between you and your husband. And I'm sending you some big bear ((((hugs))) and a Brokie-kiss  :-*

Thanks for your sympathies, sister brokies. Ha! I heard what U whispered Meryl! No, I didn't go to Mexico, but I did go to a party in Aurora, Colorado, last Friday with a group of guys and gals who are planning a BBM get-together in Colorado next spring. And somehow it gave me the courage to corner my recalcitrant mate in the shower and show him who's boss! So, the GDBOUS seems to be resolved for now!

Yeehaw, Lee!  That's how to wrangle an ornery husband, and no mistake!  ;D

Lee i am SOOO proud of you!!
I've only met you a few times, yet if he doesn't appreciate what you are, he's an idiot!! Showers work. As a male, i will say showers always work.
