"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

The  focus of the last post was the experience of being old. Like  being born and dying, it happens once in a lifetime. We get  one crack at both.  I thought it might be interesting to share and social media provides the opportunity. 

I make no accusations against Chris or Brock, only observations. Instances cited were examples of things that do happen. An argument is always bolstered with specifics. 

Every time John Abel's name is mentioned in a post I am anonymously accused .

 "Bitter Bully" is a constant, along with other uncomplimentary nomenclature though the vocabulary is somewhat limited.

I know,I know,that was a low blow but he keeps asking for it. 

If I was really spiteful I could start and end every post with reference to John Abel.

John Able,John Able
At the head of the table
He thinks he's in charge. 
And the team's in his stable. 

John Able John Able 
The pride of King Cable 
His verbal gymnastics 
Defy any label. 

I know according to King's English, there are rules,like pentamic diameter, for rhyming. 
Like breathing out and breathing in.
 I don't know what they are, they don't matter to me now. 
I'm not trying to impress . Only have a little fun. 
I've grown accustomed to the pace 
the freedom 
and the space 
The rhythm suits me fine .

I often wondered if he was just plain jealous. It might explain some of the rancour which was directed at you.

He loves himself too much to be jealous of anyone.

Maybe. but his language talents looked so meagre when he tried to emulate her.

Evelyn I am absolutely disgusted at the childish banter which takes place on a daily basis on your blog. If all of you have so much time on your hands to devote to this slanderous garbage being written perhaps you should involve yourselves in a charity such as hospice where your self centred righteous behaviour could be transformed into actually helping someone. Your comments are offensive and hurtful to each other, non productive and remind me of a bunch of insecure school bullys. You all need to give your heads a shake.

I've never been or felt hurt, offended, or read anything slanderous on this blog. You know the saying of the sandbox?
