Fuck you, doggie. You can't even spell it.

Doesn't Charlie have great command of the English language?
I'm sure it comes in handy when explaining all about "Hand
Drills" and other woodworking tools.

I shall demonstrate my own. Who gives a flying fuck if Charlie choose to
insult someone on rec.photo.digital? Or for that matter, rec.woodworking
Sheesh man, I think you get a little too much abuse sometimes, but any
abuse you get for this one you have coming. If they guy has a problem,
he can take it up.
Ok, I actually, I have more to add: I don't trust any man who never
swears, and I sure as hell have little respect for one who can't swear
creatively. Charlie could have done better, I am sure.
For people to understand my point of view, I am from Newfoundland. OK, a
few Canadians will understand anyway.
I should have told him that since he talked like a dogface, he should stick to
humping (no need for graphics here) a fire hydrant. As should our boy Dave, who
is a true piece of slime.

I swear but I don't make a habit of doing it on-line. Have
a little class, man. Just because I argue with folks
doesn't mean I have to use the f-word to get my point
across. If I wrote for a major publication, I sure as heck
wouldn't go on-line and flame people the way Charlie does.
He TRIED to embarrass me on other newsgroups and I didn't
appreciate it. Hence, I'll rip on him any chance I get. I
take sole responsibility for embarrassing myself; I don't
need his assistance. Don't you ever wonder to yourself WHY
I give him such a bad time??

Sanding is like paying taxes ... everyone has to do it, but it is
Been a rainy couple of days here in the Carolinas, and daughter LOML
shows up with a beat-to-hell particle-board POS dresser she picked up
for a few dollars at a yard sale for the apartment she's moving into.
She gives me a couple of those Daddy-killer eyelash bats and asks me
if I can help her "fix it up", so off we go to the shop and spend the
better part of the entire day cutting out all the cancer and
rebuilding the thing from the ground up.
It looks, of course, like "Frankendresser", with it's old particle
board carcase and new SYP baseboards. It's got two rows of plugs now,
up and down the sides where we had to drill and screw the frames that
hold the drawers, 'cause gluing "endgrain" on particleboard wasn't any
better an idea when this piece of junk was made than it would be
today, so we drilled it, and screwed it, and plugged it.
The whole thing was about to fall apart under its own weight, but it's
sturdy now. And it works.
And I got to spend six hours with my daughter, who I'd do anything
During the quiet times today, when we were focused on the task and
weren't talking much, I got to thinking and remembering what it was
like for me at her age, and how much I've learned about what's
important since then, and how much more I have to yet to learn, and
mostly about how very much is just beyond my control.
It was in that kind of mood that I found myself sitting down to catch
up on the newsgroup. Been busy the past couple of weeks. Missed you
guys. Then I found this thread, and it made me reflect on your
"Amish" post. When I first read that post, I thought about how
powerful a punitive measure that shunning thing is. I think now,
though, that I was wrong. I'm thinking now that it was and is an
admission of powerlessness.
And all this got me to thinking 'bout something I'd written to a
friend some time ago, and forgotten about until you posted. Brought
it home again, and for that I'm pretty grateful.
I believe that a profound change occurred somewhere in me when I
realized that from that point forward, my time was simply going to be
too precious to waste on anyone who weighed on my soul.
This is not to say that I have surrounded myself with "yes-men," but
rather that those who I have allowed to remain in my life have shown
me that when they question what I'm doing or why I'm doing it, it is
with the purpose of promoting my well-being, rather than a means to
the end of bringing me down to their level of spiritual desolation.
It also means that I must admit, at last, that I am _not_ strong. I
cannot carry their weight. I must move, and I have not the time nor
strength to become bogged down. All the time I have spent trying to
enlighten, encourage and change those who wish to remain in the
darkness has prevented me from remembering that the focus and the
force of the Desiderata's opening line "Go placidly..." is:
People who are worth my time and my small strength have no need to
slow me down in order to advance themselves. If that means that those
whom I walk with are fewer in number, it also means spending less time
waiting by the side of the road for the self-absorbed to catch up.
I haven't the time nor the strength, I must go.

Quality time amid the termite barf. Whoda thunk it?
Excellent, Michael. That's precisely why my twit filter is full,
my TV set is off, and the newspaper gets only a cursory daily exam.
Their 50:1 negative to positive ratio makes them not worth the time
Your full post (which I snipped to shreds here) is a definite keeper!
Thank you for reposting it.
