Lips will be sorely missed.

I had been pretty quiet when Lips made her intentions be known. As I was pretty stunned.

While I can never blame anyone for reaching for a stronger role in “real life”, I know that we will see changes in the tones of our group.

Lips is the first of the POP Hall of Famers.

As an update: She has rejoined our ranks.

  1. I can't tell you how incredibly touched I am, Griz. I didn't expect this. I'm trying very hard to write this, but, the tears get in the way. I had no idea how emotionally attached I would become to the people I have befriended on this forum and through IntenseDebate. I started out hostile, and before I knew it, I had let the real me out. I began to care about the people I was engaging with. And, I realized they cared about me too. It was soooo easy to be yourself here. The only judges appeared to be ''thumbs''. And the ones who weren't judging you so ''intensely'', ended up being friends. I found out the hard way that I'm not super woman. I found myself neglecting my physical life and spending more of my time here, where it feels so safe, and so comfortable. I must not be as adept at juggling two worlds as most. That I had to seriously consider which of the two worlds I preferred, understanding that I couldn't balance both, should give you all an idea of how special you are to me. But, alas, it's not a tangible life. You guys all have my email, I hope you don't forget me, even if I'm not in your face everyday, I'm still here.

    All My Love, To All,


    1. I haven't been around much lately.. I've been just trying to stay away from the boards with a occasional post now and then myself though. I'll miss yours though..

    2. I'll miss you on the forum, Lips … but I'm really looking forward to tomorrow night!! You're such a Sagittarian — dramatic entrances and exits are your thing. One of the many reasons I love you so very much!!

      1. Me Too! You are one of the few people who understand that about me. And I love every little thing about you. Now stop the obsessive house cleaning, or I swear, the second thing I'll do when I get there is mess everything up. You know I will!

        1. You didn't have to smash all those vases on your way in … or on the way out, for that matter. I'm going to be cleaning up all day tomorrow after you, dammit!! You know, there are other ways to punctuate a verbal sentence than standing up and throwing a wine glass into the fireplace, and screaming "Do You Get Me or Do We Gotta Throw Down Right Now??" Sheesh, woman, calm yourself down and accept that I might have agreed with you, before you shoved celery sticks up both my nostrils. To everyone else on this blog — the short red-headed lady is not to be trusted with a vegetable dish. I think I have broccoli coming out my tear ducts….. She beat me something awful. I can't even tell you….. <sob!>

          1. Good Morning, Snickerdoodle. ; ) For the record, face planting in your Bloody Mary doesn't equate to ''me'' sticking celery up your nose ( I don't think, anyway). LOL! I wish I would hit the hung over stage, I really hate the thought of going to work drunk. From now on, we reverse the order, we start the weekend together, an add a day for recovery.
            I had so much fun, can't wait til next time. Love ya, badkitty.

            1. Good afternoon, darlin! Wow, what a blast we had, and I'm sorry you have to work today. That was too much fun and I can't wait to do it again! Thank goodness you had a designated driver I didn't have to crawl far to get my ass into bed. All was going well until C had to plug his new fizzy-water-machine and serve it up with vodka. My memory gets a little fuzzy after midnight…. Haha — it's not the first time you've been subjected to my drunken ramblings, and it won't be the last!! Love you too!!

        1. Normally, I would be first on the list with a size 10.5 EE combat boot to the backside to do just that… but in this case, I can't manage to do it. Nope, sorry. Looks like you are stuck here!:)

  2. Sounds about like I have been doing Jim! But I've also had my hands full with puppy & vet trips. Another one Monday for Nicky, his shots are due. The girls both had surgery two weeks ago, spay for Zoey, and Pita had a lump on her eye. Had to keep them from wrestling and getting stitch's wet. Been reading more instead of being online too. So its just a quick trip over to read up on news- a article or two, maybe 3 if I feel like it, maybe a comment or two, and leave it alone at that.

  3. But, Karma?! Whatever shall I do? I tell you, at least on this site my stuff gets posted right away, and I don't have to worry about little pissy mods deleting half my post anyway. On average it takes me 45 minutes to get something posted on K(ra)PTV site.. fucking annoying. Good morning to you.

    1. Good doggie! SO I am thinkning that all of the weather that has spoiled us lately is gone. I am thinking it's wake up call time, now, and the weather is really going to shit on us soon. Wanna bet?

  4. Yeah, he replied to a comment I made about the article with the smoking warning. My first response was to ignore him but he didn't 'look' like a troll with rep points at 43 so I responded to him and he seemed to follow some of my comments. Hopefully someone else feeds him and he moves on.

    1. I seem to have one also the last couple of day's or so! Be nice if the person would just say why! I see I got zapped here also. What ever I guess!

      I came on to check about the Lori Blaylock story only to find out LE wants us searching.. I said Oh nice way to find that out, why the heck didn't they come down and ask? We knew they where here in the area, saw S&R headed up yesterday. And heard from some of the kids they where searching possibly for a body and I said yup, bet its this one and told the kids the story. So I'm sending Randy (my son, not grizzy) out tomorrow to do a river bank search. I have to go have minor surgery tomorrow on my freakin toe.. and Dr already said, no walking for 3 day's.. %$#*! <censored and not nice> But I feel like some hours where wasted that I could have joined in along with the DH. Maybe after I heal up, I can go with the hubby or son on the quads and we can do some road search's though!

        1. Sorry I didn't get right back to you Dand. I had surgery Friday on my toe and I was off my feet for 3 day's. Think it will be a few more day's before I put my shoes on also! LOL!

          Yes. We have a place on the edge of town, on the river. We are across the river behind the old Green Veneer lumber Mill. I gathered from the news on Katu the LE are asking folks to look. No one came to the door though. Son did see LE at the bridge looking over. That was kinda got me, why didn't they just come on down?

          I heard Katu was down over to the old side of Idanha by one of my sons friends houses too. They are along the river also, be towards the Salem side of town. The river swings on a slant, so while they are on the Marion County side, New Idanha sits on the Linn County side. I'm SE and they are SW.

          I just found it weird that I had to find out online on Katu.. It sure seems like they could have gone a step further and contacted folks to speak to them. I mean heck, there's only 3 homes and the trailer (RV) park.

          1. That's OK.. I know everyone has things to do IRL and I remember you saying something about having surgery on your foot. Hope all went well and you are back on your 'feet' in no time :D.. I was just curious because I never heard of them asking for help, maybe for permission or just informing home owners that they will be on their property searching. You would think that they would try to get locals to help since they would have better knowledge of the territory and lay out.

            1. Oh yes, it was just a nasty ingrown nail, but oh ouch! I feel like a pin cushion and they took a part down the whole side. I also had to have a blood screen as they started me on some meds for a couple of month's that have to be watched carefully. Yuck! So I'm hobbling about, but I don't think I'm gonna be wearing shoes for a few day's either. Very sore at this point. 🙁

              Yeah, I feel like we wasted time, had someone came round, we'd have taken a look sooner. Doesn't mean because we haven't seen anything at this point that we won't. We find things washed up from winter high water a lot – and as the DH said, lots of area between here and there. Marion Forks is 13 miles by road (hwy 22). And lots of logging roads also. Hoo Doo itself has lots of spots where it would be heck – I know there's holes in the ground in rocky area's up there.

              It does give me a creepy feeling though. 🙁

      1. I too have noticed post disappearing. When I got notification that I had a reply to one of my comments it said it was from ClicheMachine for both the one about my mom and my son.

        "ClicheMachine replied to your comment on Vigil honors 'random' teen stomped to death at party | – Portland News, Sports, Traffic W / KATU – Portland, OR:

        your creating a time bomb in that kid. im sure PPD will hAVE your number on speed dial in 3 years. QUIT HARMING THE KID DIE TO YOUR NEUROSIS! HES 12 FOR CHRISTS SAKE…IT GETS DARK AT 4:30!! omfg lol poor kid
        Go to comment

        In reply to your comment:

        It scares me to read these kinds o stories. I would absolutely be devastated if this happened to one of my boys. My oldest (12) gets angry with me because I do not let him out after dark no matter what time it is and I tell him its not that I don't trust him its the other loons out and about."

        I think that's were I got lost because I haven't received anything from eyeonchina unless they are the same.

      2. I wasn't falling for her BS either. All she was trying to do was start a fight and went out of her road to do it. She's a Peta wanna be and has said as much. And yeah, I've butted heads with her before. But I think I ticked her off as I told her as much,lol! Nope, sorry, not playing..

        Sorry I'm late to the conversation.. I told Dand above why! Surgery on my toe.. they had me off my feet for several day's. So I wasn't supposed to be hobbling around. Supposed to keep it up.

  5. Are we still pickin on them damn illegals?

    Tomorrow some of the States are going to be making a move to get a change in that pesky little thing in the 14th that gives citizenship to anyone born here aka ANCHOR. Seems that they want to do the right thing by making citizenship available to only those born here where at least one of the parents is a citizen. I would make one addition to the change…make it retroactive 5 or 10 years, then deny them any form of public accomodations such as education, welfare, medical care etc.

    It is past time that things be done to protect America from those that will destroy us. Just think yesterday in Tijuana that slime hole across the border there was a severed head hanging from an overpass with several bullet holes in it. Such a peace loving people, looks like the 30 day truce that just started already failed.

  6. Headstone of Russell J. Larsen in the Logan City Cemetery, Logan, Utah!

    1. It's important to have a woman who helps at home, cooks from time to time, cleans up, and has a job.
    2. It's important to have a woman who can make you laugh.
    3. It's important to have a woman who you can trust, and doesn't lie to you.
    4. It's important to have a woman who is good in bed, and likes to be with you.
    5. It's very, very important that these four women do not know each other.

  7. Ms. Lips,

    An elderly man is stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and is asked where he is going at this time of night. The man replies, "I am on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late." The officer then asks, "Really? Who is giving that lecture at this time of night?" The man replies, "That would be my wife."

          1. I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to computer skills. With my dyslexia, I think I am at the right spot and find out later I wasn't, again. I have gotten used to it. It often fruastrate the crap out of my wife and she tells me about it. I just shruge my shoulders at her and say nothing. I don't know what else to do.

            This is where I have been placing my jokes.
