Tks, folks. It's a puzzlement, to be sure. Cld be him, cld be her, cld be someone else in the city I used to live in who (a) has my snail mail address and (b) the necc. knowledge and (c) some kind of evil malicious instinct. And people wonder why I'm cynical about human nature?

Divia, hope the arm is better; shots in bones may help in the long term but are agonizing in the short term... fingers & toes crossed.

Wondering if there's a link between autism and demonic possession. Five year old is beyond horrible today.

A neighbour parked partly in front of our drive way this morning ! Grrrr ... why do they do that ? It's not as if there is no space somewhere else and they have a drive way of their own !!!!

My flight back from Perth was very late last night so I didn't get home until 2am and had to get up for work at 6am, and yet, I can't seem to get motivated to go to bed!

Guess I will be tired again tomorrow!

Aaargh! So glad I'm not the only one who is infuriated by people who do this. We can have a whole big space free outside our house and next door, but where do these morons park? Right across our drive. to say it makes my blood boil is a big understatement :mad: :eek:

[quote=""Chatterbox""]some anonymous 'friend' just sent me a newspaper clipping of the former love of my life (we were together off and on for eight plus years) at a society event with the 'new' woman in his life. It's kind of a dual pain -- that someone would want to make me feel bad, and that they succeeded. It's been a few years since I've seen him, and even when months go by without my thinking about him, blam. I'm going to end up like Catherine of Aragon if I'm not careful, weeping over my stitching (or writing) in a damp manor house somewhere.[/quote]

Yes, it is awful isn't it? I have it happen to me on occansion, and now I just shrug and think, I'm so much better off without him. Try and shove him out of your memory, and go do something else for a while to distract yourself.

This morning I got a most upsetting e-mail !

My boss is on holidays but at home and e-mailed me that his son has been attacked and stabbed 5 times in the lower back last Saturday !!
Luckily they didn't hit any vital organs, and the boy (who is 21) is recovering well.

Gosh .... I don't feel very well !
On top of the fact that I know this boy .... my own son is 21 aswell and I can't imagine ..... :(

That is very upsetting indeed. Hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.
