Thanks for asking Khan. I needed that info too.


Now.....please remind me...what is an elderly, long, slender reptile that slithers on the ground called again?

We re-watched "The Bee Movie" last night. One of the characters is a mosquito. Later in the movie, he appears as a lawyer. The Seinfeld bee character says "how did you get to be a lawyer?!". The mosquito holds up his briefcase and replies "I already was a blood-sucking parasite - all I needed was a briefcase!".

Apologies to the nice lawyers out there

Khan, you don't have to put me on ignore, I promise I'll stop sending you 8 pm's a day.

Wait, if he's already got me on ignore does that mean you won't see this post?

Oh no, don't tell me I assumed wrong! If I'm lucky she did put me on ignore and didn't read my post. Is it too late to delete it, hint....hint...REWahoo.

Ahhhhh.....please don't feel badly. It wasn't until the "recent picture" posting that I actually found out too!

Maybe an offering of apology.....here ya go

I could try and blame it on a side affect from getting to close the "Genesis Device" or maybe the fact that I spent "15-year in exile" or I was overcome with " Spock's death" but I won't. I shouldn't have assumed since it would appear it did make an ass out of me.

Plan and simple......Khan, I'm sorry and hope you can forgive me and take me off of ignore.


I'm sorry and will place myself on probation for "one week.

See you all in a week..........I hope.

I've accumulated a list of 7 on "ignore" (may wel have been my own fault), but 5 of them stopped posting here altogether quite a while ago. So I'm down to 2...happily.

Sounds like a potential poll - except I started one this weekend (with good intentions) without thinking it through. Fortunately the mods deleted it at my earnest request. So I think not...

Hey! As a lawyer who feels old and is still practising (which is probably why I feel old), I resemble that remark.
