Or, talk back.🤣
Yes, sass back...like I did to my mom before she grabbed the broom to chase me around the dining room table. I'd run in the bathroom and lock the door, then she'd yell "You wait until your father comes home!" It ruined the rest of my day. 😐 (I've shared a little TMI maybe?) I'm an imp...I don't care!😂

Remember, the animated show: “Wait til you father gets home”.

I saw this earlier. I did not know how to respond. I can only say: for all the stupid wars that have been fought, for all those who have died, including my father’s younger brother in a mistake in Italy where he was killed during a strike by a friendly nation... may God forgive us all.

Kirkie, your post is why sometimes it's good to get refocused, even on this Not Serious thread occasionally. We Americans do celebrate Memorial Day with parades and food, although a tribute to our fallen soldiers in battle...never looked at it quite the way you just have. Forgiveness is an awesome, profound word when put into action.

I want to post something on another thread but it would be insensitive for those who don’t have my sense of humour, or outrage at spellings that do not abide by the rules of my upbringing. So, I resort to venting here! Who cares!!! We will not be examined on correct usage. Or will we??? Come on, folks, give us an elephantine salve to my needless sense of superiority and “I’m right, so you must be wrong’!!!
I just found what looks like being a very informative document on our original animal - the melifump. I will return to reading it when i have put the Tarta De Santiago into the oven... I am giving it away so that I do not fall into almond temptation...

Question , Chris why is it now Chrissy?
Quite simple, Peter. Some people have thought I was a MAN as the name Chris often is a nickname for Christopher. My Mom always called me Chrissy. I think it is more "girly" sounding, so hopefully no more confusion!😉

Didn't know where to post this but I have seen reports of large snakes somewhere on the Camino trail. If anyone recognises which route this is can you let us know so we can be safe.

not sure why the video looks to be verboten, but anyway, welcome, I think you hit the right thread... but maybe that is enough of snakes for the moment...

Shh! The tarta De Santiago is not quite fool proof. It is now back in the oven, trying to reconstitute itself. Ah well, the recipients will eat it anyway. Not much harm can come to almonds in any shape or form!!! (check out the post of davebugg, tonight's dessert. I was too smart!!! life is too short to be upset. It just meant I got a taste of it before I threw it back in to the oven!

I've made Dave's recipe, too. I used a square pan though, as I'd given my round ones away. Funny thing though...it still tasted just the same as before! 😂

Just checked into the forum thread
It may be that I've just had an earlier than usual dose of my medicine (G andT) but I haven't a clue what you are talking about ...but that fart of Santiago sounds tasty
Can you keep a slice for me ....or better still a few slices when I come over to Dublin ?

Not surprised, Annette. I did not want to spell out what i was saying because really I should mind my own business. Just give me fair warning and the Tarta will be ready for you to take down south next time you are over....

He still needs to go through our initiation process first and the board members must take a vote. I think there are a dozen of them.

Looks like my camino number two walking mates.

I went looking, well hoping for a... well, not all the way, but close or forever.

Anyway, I did find men: 6 Catholic priests, and 1 half-naked Bishop from Germany.

Got worse on camino number three.

Met so many priests I could have become one via osmosis.

While working as a hospitalera for the Confraternity of St. James my fellow wardens, British speak for hospie, dubbed me: The priest magnet!

You were right to ignore the article. However, it does underline how smart our chief mascot is, throughout history...
This i didn’t know either, Bb’s alter ego as the Democrat mascot, and the GOP mascot...by the way, this is not pro or anti any party, just information.
