Polar Paragons

It seems to me society’s too keen
on variety, trading spouses
in on other ones.  They could, at
least, do as penguins do. . . share
in offspring’s rearing till
their task is done, and
only then. . . start
again with

    That would save some heartache and stress. Perhaps folks should consider this.

    Hello Andrea, , I did not want to leave you out of my Happy Jolly Momment.. Sending you a Christmas Carol.... -- Dashing through the snow In a one horse open sleigh O'er the fields we go Laughing all the way Bells on bob tails ring Making spirits bright What fun it is to laugh and sing A sleighing song tonight Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh HEY! :) <-- You got to love it I do hope you sang with me... Goodnight my friend... LINDA

    Yeah, I read an article about "live-in" lovers w/married people about a week ago. What a joke. Seriously, if you're going to do that, just stay single! Though, like you said, the penguins are onto something. =) Nicely done!

    Loved how you approached this Etheree! I may not be on much for about week, I'm having problems with my teeth, big time pain, I can't seem to get anyone to really help me...I always have to wait until they have an opening for me to get in even if it is an Emergency! So I must wait until Monday, and I am in a lot of pain these days, there are at least 2 teeth that need removal...I'm afraid of having pain all through the weekend! So now think of me these few days! I'll try to get on soon!

    Yes, that's the very least, although one can always hope and work toward more... Jack

    For such a short piece the moral message is very clear, nicely done Andrea

    My best friends parents divorced the year he graduated from highschool. I'm not sure that it's ever easy on the kids. There's the curb, don't stumble. Kind of abrupt. hhhhhh. :/ :) Peace. :)

    Andrea we are in the process of identifying the golden mean by touching the two extremes.
