Older guy in Sydney - here for Wordy & maybe a chat.... both even!
I like meeting different people, making new friends.
In my other life, I like cryptic crosswords & various puzzles, playing pool, red wine, boating/camping/fishing, AFL football & golf.
Boldgo: Merry Xmas my friends! Have a wonderful day.
Will be a quiet one for me as we isolate waiting for a covid test result (H's daughter might have it).
Boldgo: Someone I know (in RL) has just committed suicide.
He has left behind 2 young kids. They know daddy is not coming back but they do not understand it.
He has left behind a wife to try and cope with it all.
It doesn't matter what it is, find someone to talk to about it - reach out.
Ring a help line.
There is always hope, there is a way. Look for it, find it.
Giving up isn't the answer - even when you feel defeated.
I can see his kids at the funeral. There are no words.

kyliefun4: Disgusting antiquated ideals and gun laws how many more need to die? Australia one mass shooting and gun laws tightened dramatically US hundreds of mass shootings no action.. “ we have a right to own guns “ ffs grow up save some innocent lives
CharlotteXainte: Over 230 this year so far. The powerful NRA lobby insists that more guns = less violence. Which is like saying more drinking leads to less alcoholism. Clearly disingenuous but they give away millions each year in "political donations" and so are allowed to get away with it.
CharlotteXainte in reply to kyliefun4: Except there is no right to own guns. The 2nd Amendment says "A well regulated militia, being essential to the security of the free state, the right of the people to keep and to bear arms shall not be infringed".
To keep and to bear. To own is notable by its absence: Highly notable, given that ownership of property as a qualification to vote is explicitly mentioned in the Constitution many times over.
The right being granted is to militia members, to keep their state issued weapon in their homes, and to bear them upon the order of the state. In modern terms, the National Guard.

Boldgo: This was meant to be just introductory. That aside, I might add another piece (or 2) to expand on those points as they are very relevant to the whole thing. Thanx for taking the time to add to it!
Boldgo: Camping at last! Problems dealt with, now relaxing. So hot here, 40s C!! Cool change coming. Will pop in when I can get reception xx
You are reading this cos you are on my friends list. Unfortunately over recent times my list has expanded to the point of excess - too much dead wood. Thats people who don't bother saying Hi when they arrive or are too busy or not interested enough to reply. Accordingly I am emptying my list. If you are not dead wood pls re-request me, otherwise thanx for the memories!
