  •  My X-neighbor, she moved, couldn't talk. She (8+ / 0-)

    wouldn't write.  AND her charades were as bad as mine.  It was an interesting year.  She moved back in with her daughter.  Her daughter could understand her eyebrows.  

    Me not so much.  I gave her my phone number when she left.  (like that's going to work)  I am serious I was in over my head here.  Her daughter called me and told me her mom wanted to wish me a Happy Thanksgiving a few weeks ago.

    People baffle me.

      bad days it hurts.

      But if she "wanted to wish me a Happy Thanksgiving", that is reaching out. So just decide how hard you want to reach back.

        if it was blocked.  

        What I have been thinking about as I have been going through these last week's adventures is how much isn't said.

        Been reading so slow.  Nothing to keep me up till 4am.  S/b stopping by R&Blers.  Soon.

          when you can hear the words that aren't spoken, that's Conversation - but it takes the living side-by-side the Beatles had, or I had with Martin. Or at least chemistry and luck.

          "S/b stopping by R&Blers.  Soon." Hey, you're here now. Thanks for dropping in and speaking up.
