Rebel so glad you're enjoying life with your lovely family. I know what you mean, I can sit stirring sugar into my coffee and look out at the frost sparkling on my garden and think I am very lucky to live in a rich country (same one as yours) and have a small but warm house and enough to eat each day. Life is good isn't it?
The sugar cube.
Great to hear you are doing well Rebel.
I have also attended 3 Watford football matches with my son
Your local team rebel? if so we aren't too far apart if you ever fancy a beer . .
I thank every individual poster for their kind replies. I spent many years in my congregation, loyalty and friendship were not repaid. When I left I never even got a thank you. Never even a phone call. We are all better off if we can wash our hands of such an organisation. Thank you everyone for acknowledging my contribution to the board. " slidin Fast" yes I got to see the Vasa in Stockholm.
I would like to conclude that if as a child you had a dream, mine was to become a professional footballer, and if like me you can pinpoint the moment you realised your dream wasn't going to happen. And if like me you remember the sence of disappointment, well at this moment I can say dreams can come true if you want them to, but if you want them to its up to you. We just need to concentrate on the sugar cube we drop in the coffee, see the little things not the big things. Because the little things are really the big things. Friendship and helping each other on an Internet forum is one of those little things that is really one of those very big things.
Thank you The Rebel for being you,
Your musings on life and my being able to come here and read them are "one of those liittle things that really are the big things" for me.
In agreement with the above and:
Friendship and helping each other on an Internet forum is one of those little things that is really one of those very big things.
Your favorable comments on my writing, The Rebel, have meant much to me. Although I have gotten mostly past the ego aspect of myself at this late date, nevertheless, it is good when someone acknowledges what we do. It was nice, too, your mention of enjoying "the natural beauty of your neighborhood."
Congratulations Rebel for leaving the insanity, delusions and corruption propagated by the Watchtower Publishing house.
Rebel don't forget to read food books too.
Harvey's - that's an ale local to me from Lewes in Sussex. Are you this way Rebel or local to Watford?
