    I "preesh" all the well-wishes.
    If it weren't for Ex-Dubs in the world, I'd actually have zero acquaintances or friends who could begin to understand that wack, weird and warped journey.

    Much thanks!

    Happy birthday Terry. I always enjoy your stories and wish I had your writing skills!

    The funny thing is, that goat really is alright.

    He's in a darned better place than the shepherds sheep waiting to go into the dinner pot.

    Very many happy returns Terry - I really look forward to your book. Your stories I've enjoyed more than I can say. Hope you passed Edgar on to another fool with more food than sense, for Edgar to run rings around!

    Happy Birthday, Terry!

    It's truly sad to read accounts of what the WT does, not to its opposers, but to Jehovah's Witnesses themselves.

    Happy B day Terry! I still have a problem saying it.

    @eyeuse2badub: I knew several who were imprisoned at Safford.

    Can you PM me with a safe email address with your user name from here? I can read PM's but cannot answer them. Maybe we have met?

    So true Terry, there is no one that understands the ins and outs The Crazies and the worries the hard times and the good times of us ex-JWs, it is so nice to have someone to share with and I have loved to hear your stories thank you!

    Yep, the College of Hard Knocks is a b!tch. It toughens us in certain ways and brings out talents we didn't know we had. I'd say you've survived nicely while acquiring some rather amazing wisdom, insights and literary skills without loss of care and concern for the rest of us.

    It is said that those who've suffered much will be rewarded much.

    well done Terry.

    I recall when I was called up for Vietnam (Yes Australians were there in Vietnam) the elders told me to say to the court it was my idea to oppose and not a teaching of the wts.

    Enjoy your day and your family. Cheers.
