Friday Fulminations

31 Aug

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Audrey Hepburn

Sorry Ms. Hepburn. It’s Friday night, I’ve had a couple drinks and I ain’t got nothin’ nice to say!

Bless you all for keeping me sane and getting me through the hurdles. Love ya! To hell with the ones who caused the fulmination!

    I’ve always liked the word fulmination. I can’t remember when I first learned it, but it’s been a long time. Although I rarely hear anyone use it.

    Now I’m fulminating whilst I’m ruminating, perhaps you will be illuminating what peeve has caused your breast to heave. Connections just irritate us now and then. Maybe it’s simple as that. But know that the fae at the bottom of the garden are up in arms, and ready to throw mud! Just say the word! 🙂

      WORD! Get the mud ready! Betrayal and infidelity kinda sums it up. 38 years down the toilet.

      Thanks. I know I will survive, but after 60, I was kinda looking forward to my golden years, a grand life and grandchildren on my knee. I guess I can still have that, just not with the man I loved since I was 17.
