NOTHING like being open-minded. Those are two of the best things about life, being teachable and open-minded. It takes time but I've mastered both.

I studied Philosophy in college at the University of Nevada, Reno. Philosophy does require thinking for yourself. Had started as pre-med but after volunteering at the Veterans' Hospital for a year of Saturdays in 1977-1978 had decided that I could not deal all that well with people passing often whom you had grown close to by taking care of them. There had been several losses of people there while I was volunteering. And the math was kind of harder than I expected.

Unfortunately, a lot of the people I cared about here in the Villages have passed on or moved out to be nearer family. NOTHING but hard.


You do need to be fairly open to new ideas while studying Philosophy. And I have talked with people with many different views of things here in the Villages or nearby.

I was very interested in the problem of evil-- why a good and just God would allow terrible things to happen to good people.

Try NOTHING but When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Harold S. Kushner. I just got it out and am going to read it again quickly. If I didn't have my faith I'd be lost.

I was keyed into this book in the last year by an extremely close person from NOTHING. Out of respect, no name. Sorta proves NOTHING is Something else. People have to come to their own conclusions but this book gives some great guidelines.

Neither in Minnesota nor Wisconsin. I am a native Cheesehead and not for NOTHING even if my accent is a mix of Chicagoland and Wisconsin.

Season Eight of Game of Thrones comes out today. Talked to a college age kid the other day who rewrote the whole Season because he was NOTHING but displeased by how it ended. Or maybe it was just one of the episodes he re-wrote.

The woman I admire most here in the Villages likes Game of Thrones but I have not made time to ask her what she thought of the Season Eight of GoT. She had a very lovable pooch named Jon Snow that Beau loved to play with and greet even if they both thought they were top dogs. Jon Snow was a chihuahua/pin min mix. Taken off by a coyote, unfortunately, a few years ago late at night when let out to pee.

Jon Snow is a major character in Game of Thrones. The King in the North.

Nothing but a little story about a $20 ring.

This was my Dad’s ring. My parents were married in 1951. This ring was a Christmas gift to my Dad from my Mom soon after they were married.

In the spring of 1952, my mom secretly went to a jewelry store and put this ring on a Christmas lay away plan. This ring cost about $20 originally. My mother had to pay the jewelry store $2 every month throughout the year to have the ring paid off before Christmas.

I was born in 1959 and throughout my life I can remember my Dad wearing his ring whenever an important occasion occurred.

My Dad passed away in 1992 from cancer. My Mom gave me the ring. Throughout my life I have upheld his tradition of wearing it to significant family events. I have worn it as my 2 daughters got married. It was with me for countless holiday family get togethers, numerous high school and college graduations, grandchildren's births, anniversary dinners and also at various random occasions that I just felt had some merit of one kind or another.

This ring is absolutely priceless to me.

Well last night I got the ring out so that I could wear it today to my last throat cancer treatment. As the treatment ended, I thought about my Dad and how he was probably smiling right then about me and his $20 ring.

Thanks to everyone for their care, concern and words of support during my journey for the past 3 months. I certainly appreciate it. The ring will come out 12 weeks from now when I go to get scanned to verify that I’m cancer free.

Wow. I can't believe you're done with treatment already. I'm sure it seemed a lot longer to you than it did to the rest of us. I am so happy for you that it's done. Hoping for stellar results in three months.

What's the ETA on taste bud recovery? That has to be NOTHING but a great thing to look forward to. Let the cheese tasting begin!

My Doc said that in 2 to 3 weeks the sensation of taste and also my appetite would probably start to come back

I actually haven't had nothing much to eat other than watered down small curd cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, some tapioca pudding and sips of water for over 40 days now. I’m down about 35 lbs.

(*I only add this last bit of information as a caution for anyone who happens to be standing in front of the refrigerator door when my appetite returns... they may want to consider moving to the side a bit.... )

Hey Spoiler, you are NOTHING but the man. Offer still stands. Just give me the word Thunderbird.

I have some bad news though. That 35 LBS you misplaced I think I found some of it.

I love the Story of The Ring. So thrilled for you and Mrs. Spoiler.

Thank you sir. And I will be calling you on the offer.

I‘m thinking it may be in January. I should be nothing but hungry by then....

Good Morning. I think I'm gonna NOTHING but call out today and spend the day doing other things. I saw a post today about many different areas of The Villages being JUDGED by someone new and instead of fighting I'll let someone else handle it.

If you are a Praying person how about a little favor and send a prayer for a dear friend in NJ who is really lumped up physically and for all those who are hurting. Thanks.
