Having survived more years than the Big Guy promised, I feel that I have learned SO much and I often feel the need to SHARE with others, and O.F. like, (O.F. means Old Fogey, NOT Old Far*, got it ? ?) resent it when anyone can't see the brilliance in my observations, and resent it MORE when anyone would DARE to have a different opinion than mine.
Seriously, I love this forum, it being the most ecumenical I have ever had the pleasure to participate in, and PLEASE forgive me if I offend, for my words are often not leavened with the care and concern for someone with a slightly different viewpoint, and having spent a lot of years in a time when people looked at things in a different light, perhaps some of my entrenched views are not "current", but be nice to me, lead me gently and I might still learn a thing or two.
