well, I appreciate that Zennie. I hate that I sometimes don't see everything
that is posted here, but my life has gotten away from me lately. (as you
probably understand). My lashing out at Paghat last night was a culmination
of her words that I took were aimed at me, and I realize that when she
thought I hadn't cared enough to stop misquoting Chief Sealth, since I had
kept it up. Well, if she posted something about it earlier, I never read it.
Ignorance of the obviously stated sometimes is valid.
I don't like to argue, and I will lose when it comes to intelligent facts.
I am NOT college educated and only self taught and I am seriously lacking in
a lot of things. My ignorance has been spotted many, many times on this
newsgroup, and I hope that I learn from the experiences rather than becoming
I hate being thought of as prejudiced because the tones of my words aren't
heard. And if I come across to some people as bigoted, or a racial diatribe,
or contradictory, then I've failed at my attempts to communicate.
If I over reacted, it wouldn't be the first time. But lately, with
everything else, I just get tired and I see that I reacted kind of backed to
the wall with what Paggers had to say to me. I know in most cases that she
researches out her facts, and she's quite knowledgable, but also tends to
shove things at you. I shouldn't have gone off like I did. And she probably
wasn't attacking me personally. I went in and blocked her posts on my tools
option last night and it deleted all sorts of responses from her when I did.
Now I regret that action, and despite that I told her I'd not confront her
again, (something I'm sure won't keep her up at night with worry <g>) I
still hate that I acted out of frustration.
I'm learning lately that I need to be quite and keep my opinions to myself,
including my rambles and updates on life here in Fairy Holler. I also have a
bit of writers block along with being overwhelmed at home again. Such is my
life and I'm just rolling with it. As usual. Only now I'm older and it's
not always that easy to bounce back.
Enough of that, I'm absolutely delighted to see your post and wonder, are
you still in Pensacola or have you dragged your hubby southwest yet since
the devistating hurricane?
Just seeing the receipt from your opened message I sent a week or so ago
helped me sleep better knowing you were still out there somewhere. I
figured I'd hear from you when I lost Rose, but I also know you have a life
I hope all is well, and maybe sometime when I call, I'll get your sweet
voice on the phone instead of Bill's <gbseg>
(((much love and hugs)))
