Morning Edition - 7/12/05

Four Days and Counting…
We’re four days out from our DC Gathering at Watkins Park in Largo, Md. The Saturday, July 16 festivities will begin at noon and go until about 6 p.m. Thank you to all who signed-up to provide the goodies for the event. So far, Angie is providing what we’ll be “burning” on, that is, the grill, charcoal and lighter fluid. Jeanine, Eber and Toya have signed on to show us where the beef is (or whatever type of meat those hotdogs and burgers end-up being!) Tamara, Angie and Jeanine are bringing rolls, while Melissa and Marcia are providing the much needed condiments to make our tasty treats, finger-lickin’-good. Tamara and Marcia have also agreed to provide forks, knives, spoons and cups. Shannon is making sure you don’t load up on too much meat, by providing chips and watermelon. Feel like you just have to have your salad tossed? Well, Jeanine is being generous enough to bring a tossed green salad. The NYC contingency (moi’ included) will bring soda, juice, ice and miscellaneous treats. If you’re wondering if it’s too late to “chip” in, it isn’t. Please drop Angie an e-mail with what you’d like to contribute or just post it in our Comments section to this Morning Edition. We look forward to having a really great time and hope you are ALL there to celebrate the old, the new and the gift that is life!

Her Crime; Too Much Pussy
Ruth Knueven of the Mount Vernon section of Virginia loved cats. Unfortunately, authorities say they were forced to remove 187 cats from her home; this didn’t include the 86 dead cats found in her trash bins. The 82-year old Knueven was physically living with the animals. Authorities say there are still cats living in the walls and chimney of the Knueven home. The elderly woman was issued two summonses for failure to care for animals and for failure to dispose of dead animals properly. The fees were nothing to hiss at.

Where There’s Smoke
As it turns out, there are still folks in this world who sincerely believe that everyone around them is blind to their shenanigans. Such is the case with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. If you’re like me, you’re ambivalent to the two-some and whatever could be going on between them. Quite honestly, the pair is garnering too much free publicity behind the allegations that they’re having an affair. Still, if we’re to believe that they are not romantically involved and they are both adults that recognize the media is hanging on to their coat tails for a story, why do they insist on running around together – across African beaches, in grocery stores and most recently, to adopt an Ethiopian 5-month old girl – the new addition to the Jolie family?! For crying out loud! Spare us the cock-and-bull story that nothing is going on between you two and learn that ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. If it quacks, walks-like and does AFLAC commercials, it’s probably a -------- you guessed it, DUCK!

Keep passin’ the open windows…

I think Brad was attracted to Angelina because she has a good heart. Perhaps they didn't start their romance until Brad and Jen split...it IS possible. Whatever the case may be, they deserve to be happy and Angelina should consider going on the Super Size me diet for a while. The child looks like she is STARVING.

Here's how it works...
WHAT GOES AROUND....

All said, regardless of how attractive, charming or accessible a married person is - THEY ARE MARRIED.

Stop fooling yourself. Relationships that begin with deception and unfaithful behavior have a 10% chance of succeeding. You do the math.

Hey... as an old personal friend said, "That's Just Me."

but maybe they weren't still married. Maybe they were seperated. I am not fooling myself. I know about all of that. Maybe Brad and Jen were going their seperate ways already when he met Angie. Maybe not. The bottom line...we gotta answer to the Big Guy eventually so Angie should have a couple of Happy Meals in the meantime.

For the record, Caspar DEAR...
Separated is STILL married.
Folks, I'm not being judgemental, but let's get real and stop the bull... if someone is married, they're married. Until the divorce is final, married folks are married. So if you're the married party OR the person knowingly engaging in intimate interaction with the married party the situation is the same...subject to consequences. No one is saying it's clear-cut and easy to disengage (for any of the parties involved) or that divorce is easy, but let's not get the easy part of the story wrong or pacify the parties involved without being honest.
