Well it started out well and was original. It seems like they gave you a time out. Thats what great about your retirement you have plenty of time to think of silly things. I thought it was a great idea. I guess the mod. believes in the old fashion way, you have to earn them differently. Speaking of time out, I remember my wife telling my first son in front of my parents go to your room for a timeout. He was being a PITA and wife told him time out. My dad laughed and said to me you remember time out, yes I do it was a smack upside the head.

Ah, I just figured out what you were talking about.

No problem Keeper, and I appreciate that you took the time to write me a note. It's fine by me if the mods want to stop people from requesting rep points, I didn't try requesting them this time around anyway. And I can see the moderator's point--while it can be funny to do it for 1-2 people it could become a problem. What's strange is that I don't know how it happened to come up again--that was an old post from more than a month ago.

Anyway, thanks to those who participated--I was happy just to get pushed over 200 and you made me feel special.

Well Normie, since you are such a swell gal and we had a chuckle at your expense(sorry) I think you deserve a rep on my behalf. LOL Jersey Man
