• AdLib : Night!

  • choicelady : And you, AdLib. GREAT conversations! Thank you! See you next week!

  • AdLib : Have a cozy evening tonight and a wonderful weekend!

  • AdLib : ATT baby! Yep, it’s late, wonderful chatting with you and great to be back at Vox! Thank you again, you are the best!

  • choicelady : If you’re not Verizon, I think you’re cool. LOL!!

  • AdLib : Must be the NSA getting even with me for all my disses of them tonight! Hah! They don’t scare my iPhone!

  • choicelady : Are you ready to call it a night? I picked up the bottles while you were off line.

  • choicelady : What a revoltin’ development THAT was!

  • AdLib : My wifi revolted! Thank goodness for my iPhone!

  • choicelady : Oh – there you are!

  • choicelady : Well since you’ve vanished, I’m packing it in, too. We will pick up these ideas more I suspect. It’s NOT going away anytime soon! Good night, AdLib – be well!

  • choicelady : Are you still there? You dropped off the ‘balcony’?

  • choicelady : Yup – Dark Chocolate is one thing. Supporting the Dark Side is something entirely different!

  • choicelady : I know you’d always do the right thing – that’s not in doubt. I guess what’s scary is knowing what would work and what would not. None of us can plan that ahead. I also know that the EmoProgs would capitulate – they never have done anything, so there’s no use thinking they WOULD. I am shocked when they call for revolution – hells bells, it would muss their hair.

  • AdLib : CL – And envisioning one’s child to be cooperating with or even helping to perpetrate evil, because their parent taught them through their actions that giving into The Dark Side is okay if you’re afraid of the consequences, would just not be acceptable to me after all I have taught and tried to reflect about being a good person to my daughter.

  • choicelady : I know – I think a lot about your daughter and my granddaughter by proxy. Good chocolate notwithstanding, you HAVE to have principled opposition to evil, or evil WILL win.

  • AdLib : CL – When you hear war heroes talking about their amazing feats, often you’ll hear, “I was scared shitless!”. Being brave doesn’t mean not being scared, it’s standing up for the right thing despite your fear.

  • choicelady : Well the ‘standing up’ consisted of pretending it wasn’t happening! When I’d get calls, I’d just act as if they were my new BFF – and for some reason that seemed to work. A certain amount of good humor goes a long way. But it did NOT mean I wasn’t fearful and worried – I just turned out to be REALLY good at deflecting them!

  • AdLib : CL – It’s a little added consideration when you’re a parent but the flip side is that, what precedent are you setting for your kids if you just roll over and conform to evil? You have to fight it, one way or another and even if the RW Extremists took over here, I’d have to fight them as I know you would.

  • AdLib : CL – I think that incident with the FBI shows how you would do the right thing in the end. That is scary and I think a lot of you for standing up to them the way you did!

  • choicelady : I like to think I’d have worked covertly! I just don’t know. I also cannot think I’d stand idly by and let people be hurt. We have talked about where we could hide people. That I could do. It’s just so horrid to think we MIGHT have to do this again. When Obama won re-election, that was my VERY first thought – oh thank goodness, I don’t have to face that yet. Yet.
