Spike: Lots of fuss over one girl. Other things to do around here--important things. Angel: You know that whoosh thing you do when you're suddenly not there anymore? I love that.

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2017: That'll put marzipan in your pie plate, Bingo!  

Every year we watch the Charlie Brown special, do the Snoopy dance, wish everybody a Merry Thanksgivukkahmas, and thank our Secret Santas in the good riddance thread. Which is this one, in case you were wondering.

Go away, 2017. You have a lot to turn around, 2018. Bring it on.

Ann, that's a ferret.

Maybe also consider in the group therapy how to accept help as well as give it.

That was one thing I learned. Part of the program was making a safety plan, including who we can reach out to if things get so bad again.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

I'm thankful to be here too, WS, and thankful for all of you.

I tell people about your Iceland experience more often than you would imagine.

Oh cool! Let me be the warning to all - pour out a libation for the fairies; they get testy if you ignore them.

People talk about me when I'm not there... I must really exist

Fred Pete, I'm so sorry about your lost kitties and about your breakdown. Glad Coco's doing so well, though. I sympathize with the "couple weeks of "partial hospitalization" in a classroom-type group therapy setting" - I did that a few decades ago, too. It helped, and I'm glad it helped you. I echo what Laura said, we've always known what a great person you are, and now that you know it too, I look forward to seeing what you do with yourself!

Ahh, retirement. The thought that buoys me up 8 hours a day.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Oh Fred, I'm sorry things have been so hard for you, and hope they continue to get better.

What a rough year, Fred. I'm glad you're finding ways through and some useful things enroute.

A dress should be tight enough to show you're a woman but loose enough to flee from zombies. — Ginger

And I just got it, Connie!

You got me a wee Japanese hedgie! With a tomato!

Also, a big ol' candle that is the perfect combo of woodsy & fresh.

Thank you, Connie!!

I got one of those candles for myself.
