    This is the quote that I find offensive - 'Not a fan of a anyone who sulks. Get over yourself ' (status)
    Whoever it was aimed at, not my cuppa
    Lets leave it there, we are just bringing the forum down

    @Patsy Faye I never read anyone else's status post as these are just ramblings. You are clearly upset. Why did you not say at the time?

    If you remember you picked me up about using quotes in a thread. I just giggled about it.

    I think it's the mods job to comment on status posts.

    Apologies if you were offebded
    @Pasty Faye that remark is not aimed at you, how on earth did you come to that conclusion. I am indeed not a fan of anyone who sulks. It was just random thoughts.

    I am amazed a remark on my profile page, not even a thread has ended up by me bringing the forum down.

    Why did you not raise the issue at the time.

    You're a clever girl, I'll give you that
    Seen it all before on the forum I left to come here
    The reason I didn't mention it before is that I wanted to get past it
    but I kept seeing the remark. Like I said, it didn't have to be about me
    I have been here a year now at this forum, never had a problem until recently
    You carry on as you are Honey, I will give myself a break
    I do apologise to anyone that my posts have affected

    This thread has evolved, revolved, kinda regurgitated at times, but I must call attention to the fact that it urged @Patsy Faye to respond in more than one sentence!

    Do I need to be more selective in my choice of material? WTH wants to discuss butterflies, wind direction, neighbors, and the like.

    I have to be careful. No one ever wins the "popularity" event more than once. Look at Hillary.......

    I am completely baffled by Patsy' s comment. If you look at my thread content have I ever been rude to anyone . I am open tell you about life in a funway I thought that is what a forum was about. Perhaps that irks people I do not know. I have done these things but later in my life. Which I feel proud of.

    I am clever Patsty I happen to have a degree in behavioural psychology it proved useful in nursing geriatric patients.

    You say things were ok until I became a member. I find that a bizarre comment.

    I am not letting you trap me into making further comment.

    If Ken is unhappy I would rather have his input.

    Me? I find myself wondering why I bother since there are so many people who are more interested in fighting than in anything else.

    I can't keep up with it, nor do I want to. For some, when they come here from another forum, it's like moving to another town to get away from problems, but bringing the problems along.

    Everyone thinks they are in the right, or that it's someone else's job to figure out who's right and who's wrong, and to do something about it.

    None of it makes a bit of sense to me, nor do I particularly want it to. It's all crazy stuff, and I think it's fair to say that most of us would just rather not be a part of it.

    @Ken Anderson - you're right of course Ken and no one should feel they have to get mixed up in a squabble
    Its between two people. A solution has been found to get things back on track, so I hope this is the end of it
    If I had thought of it earlier. the above would never have occurred and for that I am sorry

    So this does not affect the other forum members and drag on. I have already apologised to Pasty and mean that.

    I feel as though I no longer have the heart to post further at present as most of you know I am undergoing investigations and not in a position to undergo stress.

    I am still puzzled by these turn of everyone events as Patst was very friendly at the start.

    Have a great Christmas and New Year everyone

    Sometimes, we all say something that is taken wrong by someone else, and it is good that you two have at least talked about this. I believe that both of you have been hurt, and that neither one meant to hurt the other.
    It is kind of like accidentally stepping one someone's toe. It still hurts; but it helps to know that the other person was not intending to step on your toe. Sometimes, that toe was already sore before it was stepped on , and then it hurts worse; but give each other a virtual hug, make up and be friends again.
    Both of you are wonderful and caring people, and I would hate to have either one of you feel that you need to step away from the forum.

    Awright! As the OP, I saw then, over 3 months ago, no animosity to be squeezed from my little forum diatribe could I possibly predict. How wrong I was! Lay the blame on me, then, for provocatory intent, even if it was not. No solution for hurt, I know.

    Now, my observation, painful though it may be and costly of a very recent possible new friendship, is likely. But my honest interpretation. My little kitties, brother & sister, were obtained very young, about 5 weeks old. They grew up splendidly, wonderful companions, survived my divorce far better than I did, stayed with me for life. Had they both been typical, and female, they would have been "catty" at times. I can detect no subterfuge here, nor maligned or malicious intent. It just happened, no real explanation. The hurt herein made me feel bad. These: Always made me feel good:

    I have always enjoyed the caring and feeling members I've met, and will always have them in my heart. Lately I haven't had the opportunities to share, read or enjoy the threads and posts. Things aren't going so well on my home front with my youngest son. Were like complete strangers; It's been for me like staying on an abandon ship on the Saragossa Sea. The awful smell of discontentment. He has helped me a lot with electrical issues. So I stayed away, because this will be the only time I bring the subject up.

    I am saddened to hear this; but sometimes taking care of ourself and our family has to come to the forefront in our lives. Bobby and I will say a prayer for you and I am sending you a virtual hug, @Marilyn Pahl .
    God Bless, and we are here if you want to share or just need a hug from the group.

    Thank-You so much. The other boys enjoyed Interneting with Pip but asked me what was going on? Well Pip is in rut, and goes so far with a project but never finishes it. There is always an excuse. He doesn't smoke, drink or use drugs. But the hardest critic on himself and takes it out partly on me. And that's hard to take. Oh I've came passed the room seen the different topics, but wouldn't be able to focus. I appreciate all my friends, and knowing Ya'all didn't drop off the planet has been security for me.

    Thank you so much Marilyn. One can get side tracked at times and we need to re focus what is important to us. You obviously are a caring person.

    Virtual hug coming your way x
