    OK, Missy. I guess typos count as surpises …..

    I am horrified at some of the things I have inadvertently said. The written word is much safer!

    One of my typically long and pithy poems ends with this quatrain about being too careful about whatcha say:

    It’s like my Granddad told me: “Son,
    when you have seen your whole life’s run
    and never pissed off anyone,
    you haven’t got much said or done.”

    I have been accused of not having a stop valve between my brain and my tongue and now my fingers on the computer keys. Face palm—Who said that??? I didn’t did I???? No one can see the evil smile behind the palm.

    Regarding Bocopro`s poem ending, I think Lord of the Fleas comment re: Headmissy`s misspelling—–might put the lie to that poem!

    ’tweren’t meant as correction, Col J, just a good-natured dig. Besides, Missy didn’t make the typo – whoever created the original image did that.

    And typos can have some pretty serious consequences of their own, just like a brain-mouth disconnect.

    No, not fleeing to HK. Unlike Rosie O’Waddle, I don’t know how to say “Ching chong ching” with the proper Cantonese accent ….

    besides, you should flee to the Czech Republic…it’s WAY cooler and much more beautiful and those people are still a little fresh from moving AWAY from Communism.

    Wherever I go, they gotta speak English, and I gotta be able to bring my books and my guns.

    If I stop to think about what to say, then I forget what I was talking about. Huh?

    Amen, sister.
    The delete key, the eraser, and the shredder have saved me a lot of embarrassment over the years.
    So has the ability to edit and delete the stuff I’ve posted, here.
    (What? Yeah, not enough, though.)

    Note: I do try to correct y’all’s typos when there doesn’t seem to be a joke/pun intended. You’re weclome.

    Okay since we’re talking about spelling, Col Jerry, didn’t you mean KWIM? Does one correct the Colonel?

    Supplies

    Hong Kong would seem to be the perfect place to go, everyone there speaks engrish…Hell they were English until 1997.

    And guns and books shouldn’t be a problem, it’s been a smuggler’s paradise for like evah.
