Bob and Chain Mail

My last blog is a lovely picture of the new addition to our family. His name is Bob. He was adopted by us on Saturday. He looked so happy sitting there on the aisle that we just had to bring him home. While I am not a major Halloween person, the kids do enjoy it. They decided he needed a name and settled on Bob. I will not let them dress as devils or witches, but certain decorations are allowed. (Although I did buy a cackling witch. I just didn't think about what it represented until after I got her home.) Now we are stuck with her.

Does anyone ever send you those ridiculous emails that are full of love and good wishes? Until you get to the end. Then there is the threat that if you do not immediately forward the email to ten people within ten minutes you will die and the world will fall apart. I love all my friends very much. But I HATE those emails. All that mushy gooey goodness, then at the end you are THREATENED. What is that all about anyway? I think the threat at the end cancels out any of the good stuff that was said earlier in the email.

I have enough bad luck in my life without the added stress of having to worry about more. I don't even see what the fun is in those. Is it to prove that I really am a loser because I can't think of ten people to send it to? Or some kind of crazy popularity contest? I don't know.

I do know this. If you send me one of those ridiculous emails, I WILL IMMEDIATELY DELETE IT. I will not respond to stupid threats of ten years of bad luck. Ha! I already have bad luck. So what's another ten years?

Don't get me wrong I am all about the mushy gooey goodness, as long as there is not a threat attached to the end of it.

I wish all my family and friends good luck, and good things for your life, with no strings attached. I hope everyone is healthy, happy, and safe. If you have ever sent me one of those emails, don't be offended. I appreciate that you think about me and all that good stuff. It's just not nice to tell someone they don't get the gooey goodness if they don't carry on the chain..........and that's all I have to say about that.

I agree with you 100%. I do the same thing. My care for someone is not determined by whether I send an email back to them, and if they think it is then TOO BAD. Hate it for ya.

KC-Did you like the Mrs. Grinch story?

I hate chain mail. I think it's kind of rude, actually. And childish. Especially the ones that say "Show how much you love God; pass this on." PUH-LEASE. Or the one I got the other day -"Keep this going - it's for breast cancer research." How does my clicking the "forward" button help breast cancer research? I would rather write a check, thank you very much.

LOL-I love that "Puh-lease" very funny! I only need to show God how much I love him, not the rest of the world
