    Well, this personal letter from an elder, inviting me to the memorial is proof that they love me.

    They love me, they love me not......

    Gee, that stamp on the letter cost him 50 cents !!!

    I would go back if, instead of Memorial Day, we had Compulsory Cunnilingus Classes for the men.

    Would there be hands-on training? I'm fairly certain I'd ace the class, but I'm sure I'd retake the class at least a couple times for that.

    I was still a believer when I walked away; it got to the point to where I didn't care if I was destroyed at armageddon; I just did not want to live with a bunch of cliqish backstabbing, hypocritical judgemental people who didn't care but to use me for their own advantage; not to mention the lies, deception and manipulation coming out of Brooklyn.

    Go back to that even though I have more reasons not to go back than what I stated above? No

    Two things:

    1) Crumpet's suggestion was a good start! I would go to meetings nightly, daily, all the time.

    2) If they could fix my debt with Uncle Sam.

    I've never been in "the truth", so how can I go back to it?

    I spent over twenty years in a man - made religion that had no semblance of truth, and no, I wouldn't go back to that.

    My life is full of things that make me happy, stronger, braver,wiser, and more generous. How can you improve on perfection?

    Wait... if my local KH mutated into a Spiritualist church with a gay atheist preacher and a kick-ass gospel choir, I'd go back. Assuming they'd gotten rid of all the clique-y bullshit and shunning and self-deception.

    Symbolism abounds in this song. Eric Hilliard Nelson, better known as Ricky, joined the cast of his parent's ABC sitcom "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" in 1952 at age 11. A fall 1956 episode had him organizing a rock 'n' roll band in high school. Then in an April 1957 telecast he was drafted to perform with a local band and sang a currently popular Fats Domino hit, "I'm Walkin'"--which, backed with "A Teenager's Romance," promptly became a real-life million-selling record for him. Ricky went on to be one of the biggest stars of the early rock and roll era.

    His star faded in the mid 1960s. He tried valiantly to regain the top of the charts, but it seemed the British invasion was thwarting him at every turn. Ironically, however, a song he wrote in the early 1970s about his disillusionment with the music industry was his biggest hit.

    GARDEN PARTY - good song.

    Thanks Blondie for jogging my memory! It expresses how I feel about going back.
