Oh dear, Mook, you really crack me up. Why someone has not grabbed you up and kept you all to herself is a mystery to me. With a sense of humor like you have and the "cush" job, if I were young and free again, I'd snap you up in a minute, she said with a smile on her face and a hearty laugh. :lol:

Some of us get lucky late in life." I'm so glad I'm not young any more," quoting the song because I found the most wonderful man for me and our golden years are delightful to share. If I had a magic wand I'd wish that happiness for everyone.

I still have 4 daughters, 3 sisters, and my constant four-legged companion is even a female. :D Adding women to my life is not a high priority right now.

The bottom line is; if you want something strongly enough, you make room in your life. One more child is one more napkin at the table and one more point of view. One more late shift, is one more creative rant. Raising children alone is a privlige, not a sacrifice. Raising a family with a partner in it for 50 percent of the haul...is a near miracle. If you want to write, move your alarm up an hour and hit it! Come on, Sloopy, you can do it!

Thanks all,

And especially Carol, I needed the chiding. Just a bump in the road that I called a mountain. I'm better than that. Actually, I wrote 500 words today. It's a start.

Good for you Cormorant. I knew you could do it all the time you just needed a little push to get over the hill, not the mountain, but the hill. I'll look forward to reading a snippet of what you've written.
