And as a Taoist you should be whatever-will-be, will be. Gravity does as it will.   :D

Poor K-bar.

That was very polite of her, really.  She could have just sent him off down the trail alone.  Or pushed him off a cliff...or left him to die on the mountain of his own ineptitude...

The communal sharing of the Knob Creek in celebration of her well-made decision was especially amusing.  That was one of the most fun nights with new strangers ever.

This all does make me think of my aunt, who after 40 or 50 years of marriage said she had never considered divorce.  Murder, yes.  Divorce, no.

Men are all aggravating at times and lucky to make it to old age ;)

Both are fundamental interactions of nature.


There's no natural laws governing vengeful women though. They're too unpredictable.

That's funny.  We do still get mail for him.

I didn't tell my wife he was a previous owner.  She got a little upset when she saw the first piece of mail.

8 days?
It usually takes a bit longer than 8 days for a wife to feel like pushing her husband off of a cliff.  
I think the average is more like a couple on months or so.

I don't call a woman I like "hunnie" until I now she likes me. I call a woman I dislike "hunnie" as soon as possible. Never failed me.

When I get called "hun" I don't generally think I'm thought of as an ignoramus that doesn't know how to fight with the point, not blade of his weapon. Then again, some ladies like the Attila type from time to time.
