OH.....the questions.........how many have there been?

And how many answers to the same question?

Your BIL's comment made me drift back to when I had so many things to wonder about.

And truth is, even after all this time, I still dont have some of the answers.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

That's a great story, Chriss!

 :-*

It's funny too because I recently sent my DVD home with a friend from work.  We'd been talking about what I'd been up to for the past 10 years, and that's hard to summarize and leave out the last three.  Also, he's on my FB, so he followed Dev's and my road trip, so he wondered how we knew all these people along the way.

The upshot is that he loved BBM, and one of his first questions was 'How do you think Jack died?'

This ain't no little thing.

Wow!  That's very cool to have a budding Brokie in your own family!  If he's seen it 3 times, maybe that's an indication of the beginnings of Brokie-fever.  ;D

He's lucky to have a Brokeback expert for a sister-in-law so that you can have some serious discussions together. :)


I hope we'll have some discussions about the movie in future. Last Friday we only talked briefly about it, we were a large group of people and conversations were running high and higgledy-piggledy over the table. But I was happy to hear that he loved the movie. I just knew he would, that's why I bought him a copy :).

Whenever I sigh, i keep thinking of Jack peeling that potato....whenever I use the vaccum cleaner and it doesn't quite reach the socket, I think, 'never long enough'. Whenever my husband spies something left on my plate and wants it, I say, 'it's all yours'.  Whenever I really give someone a genuine hug, I think of Jack and Ennis at that first reunion.

thanks for sharing, and the thing about the vacuum cord is hillarious :)

I have a friend in Sydney, who I met and worked with, over 20 years ago. We email frequently, not only me and him, but me and his wife as well, as she worked for the same company back then too. I always visit them when I go to Sydney.

Anyway, the went to a reunion a couple of weeks ago, in Sydney, of former employees of the company, and he wrote and told me about it.

I wrote back, asking if he had told them that we still keep in touch, then added, "not that they need to know, no one's business but ours".......

A Firefox dialog box that pops up frequently has the choice: Remember Password or Not Now

I always think "Not nowwww, Alma"
