    #4 Exactly Ken. He thought we'd forget him, just move on with our lives. What I said to him was this: "You're right, we'll move on, because we'll have to, But we've always been a pie made up of seven slices, and if we lose you we'll never be whole again".
    We lost him just a few months later. I didn't realize how right I was. He makes his presence known every once in a while, and it makes me smile to see him in a kindred spirit.

    hahaha--so great. Thank you. Your story of Buddy brought me back to the days I bought my sons a puppy which turned out to be a mistake. The pup was from hunting lines, and when I placed the leash in my hungry children's hands, the dog dragged them down the street on his hunts. The leash was put away after a few attempts. Tag often sought to escape our grasps to go on his hunts. Void of prey in suburbia, his escapades focused on trash cans. He became a fan of a local restaurant, stalking the back door of a kitchen. I'd get a call to pick him up those times.

    Highly entertaining read to which I can relate. Our property is considerably smaller than yours, Barbara, but we back onto a large area of parkland and therefore also get many 'visitors'. When it comes to snakes, however, I am a complete and utter wimp and wIll always phone the local catcher, even though it costs a small fortune. Don't know about the wrigglies round your way but some of the larger browns and taipans in Queensland can reach their target 2m (about 6 ft) away when coiled to strike. This is much longer than the handle of your typical shovel. I'd rather they call me a chicken or a sacaredy cat, than they call me a mortician to carry me away. 🐍 πŸ‘€

My husband even put large, heavy bricks on top of the garbage cans and they managed to knock them off. They had to be 30-40 lbs, no kidding. I enjoyed reading this. Glad no one was harmed, including your dogs :)

    Barbara, Racoons are unbelievable. They are smart and sneaky and just the bandits they look like. You've reminded me of a the one that raised three little ones and lived in the soffet panels of our roofed porch. I'll have to tell that story here. And the score is Mama racoon several hundred versus a big male trying to kill her babies in our attic, all the humans in the family, a fire department and two different animal control officers. To be continued.

    After losing three family members in the last 2 years, I don't think anyone is waiting for death to overcome their life. Death is final and although we hope there is an afterlife, none of us really know. Although I appreciate your Sister enjoying her life, the sadness she experienced her final year, is quite sad.

    "If you love them, let them go...." Such a tremendously hard mindstate to get to, but ultimately, really the only choice, as otherwise two people died for the soul of one. But there is no way to help or advise someone else about how to get to this state. Grief and its unfolding is completely individual and complicated, just like the actual relationship we had with the dearly departed.

    #15 Thank you Joyce, but not looking for kudos or recognition. As you might yourself say, I am just seeking to inform others. What I saw during my brief brush with institutional mental health "treatment" was some of the most disingenuous people I've ever run into. Florida requires by law that the Patients' Bill of Rights (under the Baker Act) be posted clearly on the wall of every mental health facility in a prominent location. And I have stood right in front of such a posting with several mental health "professionals" while they blatantly contradicted what was clearly stated in that posted document. The only time anyone pays attention is when you start taking names, making notes, and talking about legal action against not only institutions but also the individuals involved in what is, in many cases, illegal detention. You are right. God help you if you fall into the clutches of the system without having an advocate on the "outside".

    #10 when lawyers are hesitant to act, it is usually because they are unsure of the law or they are afraid they'll be drawn into a case that will ultimately not pay any money, even if they win. The courts are important not because they are always, or even often right, but because they force mental health professional to go on the written record -- which is a prerequisite to being successfully sued. I have found that their primary tactic is to try to convince the patient or the patient's healthcare guardian to convert to voluntary commotment. Which people have to understand ceases to be voluntary the instant you agree to it.

    #8 #9 Truly terrifying Phil - I had a niece that was very nearly 'incarcerated' under the Baker Act. She almost volunteered herself until one kindly lady gave her the heads-up you mentioned. She was lucky.
    Equally terrifying is how many white adolescents (don't know the ethnicity ratio, but the white parents are almost encouraged to see their teenager as 'troubled') seem to be indulged by so-called professionals who will put them on lithium and the other mind-blowers BEFORE any real diagnosis is made. Sheeet...we used to call that growing pains! The Psychiatrists who practise this (as you know - MANY!) should have their licenses revoked. They have taken perfectly natural adolescent problems and turned them into labels the child will grab onto and cannot shake - seen it so many times in FLA. Of course, there are enough with genuine problems like bipolar, schizophrenia, etc. But to take ADD and turn it into something bigger is criminal.
    I used to employ in FLA when the 3-strike rule was legal; I won't even start!
    It is archaic and barbaric as @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher points out.

    Such a preventable death, how very sad. I can relate because my sister has been in an out of Psychiatric wards, she has bipolar illness with psychosis. There are times they've had her so drugged she couldn't even talk or get out of her bed. We did an intervention a while back, I initiated it. They weaned her from 5 drugs and she left with 3. That was progress believe it or not. She was doing so much better but just like the opioid epidemic, it seems drugs from Psychiatrists play a large role in an epidemic on another level. Our mental health system needs an over haul. It's still so archaic once admitted to a psychiatric ward in many places.

    #8 Agreed, Phil, but I have seen them outright lie to facilitate extended commitments. They simply deprive patients of all rights here in MA by finding them incompetent in front of a judge. I'm beginning to think the system has so much power, lawyers are hesitant to act. Once the system swallows you up, you are gone.
    Phil Friedman
    03/08/2017 #9 Phil Friedman
    PS -- Here is a tip. Never, ever agree to "voluntary" commitment, For in most cases, once you do, you lose the right to voluntarily check out of treatment, but become subject to the whims of the doctors and other "professionals" involved.
    Phil Friedman
    03/08/2017 #8 Phil Friedman
    The state of Florida -- which is generally backward, if not downright prehistoric -- in many ways -- has what is known as The Baker Act. It is commonly thought of as legislation that gives police and healthcare professionals the power to involuntarily commit people to mental institutions. However, although it does that, it is, more importantly, a patients' rights act, because it lays out that such commitments may only be for a period not to exceed 72 hours, during which time a panel of qualified mental health professional must examine, prepare a report documenting that the patient is a danger either to himself or others, and successfully petition a Court of appropriate jurisdiction for an order of commitment -- or release the patient.

    Of course, mental health workers often misunderstand, misinterpret, and outright lie to patients and their families and friends about the act, in an effort to coerce agreement to conversion to "voluntary" commitment. Especially, when a facility has open beds and the patient has insurance or is being covered by Medicaid. And even with the act, a patient desperately needs an advocate to insist on enforcement of the rules which place the burden of proof on those who would keep a patient confined.

    Still, the situation with such legislation is a zillion times better than without it. As I learned some time ago when I went to a locked mental facility to pick up a relative and literally had to camp in the admissions waiting room whilst insisting that 72 hours had passed with no legal action and that the patient had to be released or I would see to it that the facility and its administrators would be charged with illegal detention. The administrators did not know whether to shit or go blind, because it seemed they had never before been challenged in that way. And they reluctantly released the patient.

    @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee Systems seem to cater for the lowest common denominator. That means that a not insignificant amount of people are unfairly/inappropriately dealt with - they fall through the safety net.

    There's a friend I have not seen for more than 20 years Jerry. He's my good friend from university. He loved to hang out with his girlfriend who later became his wife. Later I learned they had gone their separate ways. I feel sad for both of them. Never thought it could happen. Maybe things didn't work out. Your story reminds me of friends from years ago whom I've not seen. Thanks Jerry.

    Like you, @Jim Murray, it took a certain skill at juggling to keep the chainsaws of business from destroying the Cabbage Patch Kids of family as my wife and I worked to keep them all in the air. And we did both work. So parenting was definitely bilateral.

    Yet vacationing was planned a little differently. We made the children work for it. Literally.

    When they all (there are four of them, all daughters) said they wanted to go to Hawai'i, we said fine... if they saved enough to pay for their airfare. So they spent a weekend morning each week cleaning house (and getting paid for it), and one of them would have to choose a menu and make dinner (in rotation) on Sunday. At the end of nine months, they were ready to go (and all reputable cooks).

    I don't think anyone had a finer appreciation of a vacation than they did, since they realized the work that went into affording it. A generation later, when we took our daughters' children to Europe, we told them to bring money -- souvenirs and trinkets were completely on them. It's amazing how long it can take to buy a tchotchke when you pay for it yourself. It was something that their mother's understood... and gave them extra chores to do to earn the cash.

    Yea, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, that $10 thing is BRILLIANT!!!
    @Jim Murray, you wonder if other boomers experienced the same vacation patterns as you...YES! There was a brief moment in time when family vacations were going well and the pre-teens seemed happy (NOTE: PRE-teens!) We thought to enhance the experience by purchasing an RV. While the hubby and I enjoyed the experience, our two teens refused to enjoy the vacations. That $10 roll of coins would have come in handy! ;)
    The adult children don't vacation with us anymore, but they have been known to toss a grandchild at us when *disaster strikes*. The RV trips with the grandchildren are the best! I'm also quite content taking the RV out for solo writing retreats.

    *disaster = those times when the grandchild is driving the parent crazy.

    I like the nickname Shelly gave you, "The Boomer!" At least you didn't refer to yourself as "The President," LOL. Ok, all kidding aside. I love that you gave your wife so many kudos and recognized how hard it was to be a full time parent and not only that, you continued to compliment her. Your vacation journeys sounded quite familiar! It sounds like your vacations were great bonding time. I remember once when we drove to Maine (long drive) and the kids were old enough to really annoy each other on long drives I decided to give them 10.00 each in money rolls and told them they could spend it on what ever they wanted BUT, if they fought in the car they had to hand me a quarter each time. I honestly don't think they lost any money on the way down. I was laughing when you admitted your wife doesn't like your driving, I do most of the driving too because I think I do better and then he doesn't have to listen to me backseat drive the entire way. It's a win/win, right?!

    Interesting to have you verify, Puneet, that the region which originally mastered
    the domestic cultivation of the modern majestic mango, some 4000 years ago, remains a mammoth mango mover. Here in Australia, we also love our domesticly grown mangos, but only have some five main varieties, with the practice of mango manipulation and munching only going back about two hundred years.

My son made me a Mango smoothie with banana and Soy Milk, it was delicious.

    Not settling means making the most of this life.Β So make the most of every opportunity you see. Make the most of the moments you feel at peace. Make the most of the moments you feel yourself changing and growing. Make the most of the times in which you feel the most alive. Make the most of the people you love, and most of all, make the most of yourself.
    Work makes up a big chunk of your life. It takes up hours of your days, and hours of your thoughts. You don’t need to stay in a job that leaves you feeling lonely or drained. You shouldn’t dread going to work every single day. This is your life – the way you use your days should be meaningful to you. You don’t want your life to consist of countdowns, day after day, until work ends. I know work can’t be wonderful 100% of the time. Nothing is great 100% of the time. But by no means should work be awful. By no means should work feel like torture.

    Work can and should be a part of your life that you like. It should challenge you and help you to grow. If you hate your job, make a change because honestly, the suffering just isn’t worth it. If it isn’t feasible to find a new job, make changes at your current job. Think about what you could do to feel more passionate about your job, or ways that you could feel more comfortable in your workplace. You want to feel like work encourages you and speaks to you. So don’t just sit back and settle. Don’t wake up to your alarm clock everyday feeling tired and emotionless or dreading your day. You have a say in this so stand up and take control. You deserve more.

    Is there something that you are passionate about? Pursue it! Learn it! Seep it in! Surround yourself with what brings out that sparkle in you~

    #26 OK i get it now, just one question "Can you really play Zeppelin in a mini van? I am thinking this may be sacrilege to the rock gods. Think about it. If you rolled up to the stop light and here is dad rockin the classic rock in the mini-van.

    1. Dad needs to grow up
    2. Dad is divorced and just getting back into the dating scene.
    3. Dad has some Freudian complex that he got hung up in the 60'70' era
    4. You have met your sole mate as you sing along from your own mini-van

    OH, my gosh @Shelley Brown, yes it does. I was getting depressed listening to the news on my commute this morning, so I started asking random questions to Siri. I know right? Don't judge.

    Yeah, Questions like; "What's the meaning of life?", "What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?", "Siri, How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" "Siri, read me a Haiku.", "Siri, Who threw the first pitch in the 1994 world series (BTW, the World Series was cancelled that year.)?". And my favorite; I slowly said "I am but a silhouetteo of man. . ." and Siri finished the song for me in her unique way.

    Random enough, I think :-)

    Humans are an amazing species. Your writing always makes me feel i read to slow. I cant read at the pace your brain operates. I am thinking that maybe one of those unused DNA parts is a brain high octane fuel, and yours is turned on.

    Guilt like the other emotions that we carry in our backpack can be debilitating. There are some that it overwhelms to the point they cant thrive, but mostly we all carry a load of self concept that has its moments.

    Myself, i found comfort in finally realizing that we are all emotional beings and depending on circumstance we succumb to them occasionally.

    The magic for me came when i took the rocks from the back pack and set them on the table for discussion. More often than not i understood that it was my own projection of circumstance that created the debilitation. The person that it was directed neither understood nor was concerned about my rock.

    Today's world offers us the engagement but the levels we are willing to go to get it, sometimes, triggers our rocks. Media especially has tapped into the limbic system of our existance to motivate.

    Your courage to express a rock in your back pack is encouraging.

    Great points that many focus on. I've learned as I've aged that it's ok to do what I need, say no when I have to without guilt, and realize that I can go days without talking to a good friend and we can pick up where we last left off. As for my immediate family (kids), we talk 2-3 times a week. Life sure can be a juggling act.

Hyperbole means excess, overstatement, exaggeration, embellishment and fellow netizens may all becoming hyperbolic about hyperbole is kind of strangely ironic :-) I am sure someone famous must have said it or sung about it or filmed it but it is seems like the currency right now. Let's just hope it wasn't triggered by something Trump said or did for our obsession with Mr. T. is now definitely excessive.
