It's lumping them together that's the problem.

In other news...Sunny, I would like to request you lock the "nobody wants to sell me a house" and "Ballantyne affordable housing" threads so we can get some new topics going. It's getting really monotonous to check in here and see the same crap from the same two or three posters day after day.

ROFL!!! DEAR ME!!! You know what I did? I somehow read your name as CHICUBS and I knew her hubby would have had to come here maybe 20 years ago, lol.

Pardon me! Is this the icon for embarrassed???

However, as a writer, it really chaps me when I see someone playing games with semantics.

I fully understand that you were trying to make a point. However, I do not see the validity of your comparison, only b/c the original thesis - that what Sunny wrote was rude - is invalid.

The other things you wrote - I agree- those would be rude. But that is not what Sunny wrote, nor the spirit in which he wrote it.

He did not say (or imply) that everyone who came here feels that way. He stated a lot of folks feel that way - i.e., have no feelings of ownership.

Not trying to get into a head lock with you, Lu-Dog, but when it comes to inferences with the written word . . . play fair. That's all I am saying.

I'm not attacking your friend, so don't attack me. IMO The comment was rude. I was only telling my perspective. If the only purpose for initially asking the question was to gain support, then the initial post should have said "those that don't agree with me, no need respond"


I also find it offensive that are mod has inferred that us "newer tho the forum" are less knowledgeable or in someway our opinions are less valid.

Well, shoot, Coastalgirl - why don't we just start a fun thread and distract everyone? LOL!!! Let's see . . . music to have a storm by? Oh, I guess that isn't local enough . . .

Predictions for the snow - how much we will get?

Okay, I am stuck on storms . . .

I know, I know! Who bought a sled after the last storm and can't wait to use it??

We actually didn't buy sleds, but visited my family in Ohio and brought my childhood sleds back with us. My mom had them in the crawlspace! Now if it snows this time, I won't be sliding down my driveway on a cookie sheet!

I should hope that when someone challenges your thoughts, you would not consider that an attack. You write as though you have been in debate classes (a compliment!) so I would think you are very capable of defending your point of view without feeling attacked.

Again - not trying to butt heads with you! Just saying - I believe you are making more out of that simple statement of Sunny's than was ever intended. And I agree with you that the other sentences you wrote would be rude.

Let's just talk about the storm and be friends, ok? Please?

I'm not debating, I gave my opinion when you asked it, you missed the point, I tried to explain, and now I feel you're missing the point intentionally. (It's quite obvious)

Lu-Dog - your posts are very welcomed here and no one wishes to disrespect you - just as I would assume you don't want to disrespect any of us.

Welcome - and who cares if you are a newcomer, a newbie or whatever? We all were new here at one time.

You brought your sleds back??? OMGosh!!! The kind with the metal runners on them???

Well, I have my son's sled from Kansas! If it snows a pile - we ought to find a big hill and have a meet up. I'll bring the schnapps, lol!!!!
