1 hour ago · Just thinking out loud in Just Want to Talk

@stuckonu Thank you for opening this discussion. What you have written will stay with me and I may have more input for you at a later time, but for now I think you have shared a number of jumbled thoughts and conclusions and are asking us to sort everything out for you. In your shoes I would sort my thoughts out item by item and gather information from other people in person, through research and, as you have done here, in a "chat room" atmosphere. For myself, I have my opinions and conclusions based on my knowledge and research. Sometimes I change my opinion. I use paper and pen or electronics for writing out my thought, not stone. I need a great deal of editing. My advice to you is to keep searching.

@messickfm Welcome to Connect. I hope you find answers here and with your caregivers I have not experienced bullous pemphigoid and have no experiences to share with you.

A priest, a rabbi and a Baptist minister went fishing in a small row boat. After a few hours the minister stood up, stretched and announced he was going to go to the bathroom. The rabbi groaned inside because that meant that either he would see the minister peeing over the side of the boat or they would all have to stop fishing and go to shore. But he was surprised when the minister stepped over the side of the boat, walked to shore, used the restroom and returned across the water.
After a little more time the priest stood up and repeated the minister's ritual, walking across the water to and from the shore.
The rabbi realized he needed to use the bathroom also, and rationalized that if the other two religions could walk on water, he would also be able to walk himself to shore. So he bravely stood, stretched, announced his turn and stepped over the side of the boat. He immediately sunk to the bottom of the lake and drowned.
The priest turned to the minister and said, "Do you suppose we should have told him where the stepping stones were?"

And for the children: Knock, knock. . . . Banana (repeat several times) Knock, knock. Who's there? Orange. Orange who? Aren't you glad I didn't say banana again?

Little Johnny had a terrible problem with cursing. His mother had done everything she could think of to make him stop, from scolding to washing out his mouth with soap. (By The Way: Dawn dish soap really dries your mouth out!) One Saturday she sent him to the market for crackers and cheese. On the way home he was not paying attention and fell into a puddle on the road. "Jesus Christ, God Almighty!" He exclaimed, just as the priest was walking by. "WHAT DID YOU SAY!?" The priest demanded. Little Johnny was not only foul-mouthed, he was very quick witted. He responded, "Cheese and crackers, got all muddy!"

@contentandwell Children are the best, aren't they! Once when we were on vacation we found a sticky animal that you could throw at a smooth surface and watch it ooze down. My oldest and I were having a great time with it in our lunch booth next to the window . . . embarrassing my husband at the same time. "People are watching!" He hissed. That just made us laugh harder. Of course they were! It's lovely to see people enjoying themselves.

I had so much fun with my children while they were growing up. My youngest liked to be surprised so obliged. Our house has two flights of stairs and a landing between floors. One night I after I sent him off to bed I sneaked up the first flight until I was even with where he was on the second flight. When I popped up and started talking to him he was startled and yelled out. We both collapsed in laughter. My other child and husband came running to see what all the commotion was and left shaking their heads. Too bad! Their loss! We were having a great time.

Today I saw a Billy goat; we had a little laugh
He said he was quite hungry; so he nibbled on my scarf
I said, "Why have you done that?"; and he answered with a bleat
"I had a hat for breakfast; so the set is now complete."
