Walking away is not an option... dialogue must prevail.

"A good listener tries to understand what the other person is saying. In the end he may disagree sharply, but because he disagrees, he wants to know exactly what it is he is disagreeing with."

Go on, shake me

Still feeling a bit yucky but I have hope...

unlike poor Chuck. *giggle* (You can click it to big it)

I'm a firm believer that for every one of life's dilemmas, there is a cartoon quote that can provide guidance.

I'm serious.

So, just ask away and I'll try my bestest to find the answer you are looking for... I'll be your own personal Magic 8 Ball.

Go ahead... ask. I'll be nicer than Lucy, I promise.

Everybody has been, or still is- Charlie Brown! I agree 100% with your statement about cartoons...May we never stop the laughter- as it is the only thing that keeps us loving life..

Charlie Brown falling for the place-kick gag is a metaphor for my entire life.

Glad you're feeling a little better. :D

Buff: *dances with joy because Buff can come visit without breaking his interwebz* Laughter is most definitely the best thing we humans have going for us.

Gary: Thanks! I think I'm slowly on the mend. I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving my new friend from just south of the border.

goodfather: I know what you mean! But Lucy has to let her guard down sometime...
I am, thanks! :)

I'm not quite sure what the moral of that tale was - perhaps to avoid quacks? Anyway, I hope you continue to feel better.

Kate said...

Glad to hear you have hope.

Sorry you're still feeling poopy.

I love Snoopy comics!!

Kate said...

p.s. Happy Thanksgiving!

Akelamalu said...

ciara said...

OK Magic 8 Ball girl. . .

What's the secrete to keep bananas from turning brown?

Anndi said...

Brian: Essentially, it's the illustration that if you keep doing the same thing and expecting different results you are setting yourself up for a fall.

Kate: Never give up hope. Life could be worse, we could be Charlie Brown ;)

Happy Thanksgiving to you also my dear.

Akelamalu: A bit, I think... I'm feeling the reiki tingles!
Thank you, I'll pass along your good wishes to my Honey.

DeeMarie: There's a little Chuck in all of us. Thanks!

Ciara: Thanks, I think I feel better (or maybe that had to do with the yummy chocolate I ate)
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your clan.

Jeff: Ha! Simple me dearie!

In the words of Winnie The Pooh:

"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?""

Eat them, silly!

Casey said...

I hope you feel better soon. Man, Lucy was always a bitch to Chuck, wasn't she?

Vodka Mom said...

Find me the cartoon for bitch daughters. PLEASE...

Jeff B said...

I was hoping for something along the lines of "Don't let your wife buy them by the truck load!"

Thank you O wise and knowledgeable 8 Ball

Ron said...

Bravo Anndi...LOVED the moral of the cartoon!!!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Wow, I miss the Snoopy cartoons! Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you get back to 100% soon!

Heinous said...

I completely agree. Unfortunaely most of my issues are solved by Dilbert.

Katman said...

hope you feel better soon!

I absolutely love peanuts, but i have to go with Heinous..dilbert is real!

Travis said...

The best advice has always come from Peanuts. For example,

"Never jump into a pile of leaves while holding a wet sucker."

Now I ask you, what could be more helpful than that piece of wisdom?
