So we gotta wait a whole year to celebrate something joyous? emoticon

THIS year Tu B'Av falls July 26th.

As another side, Valentine's Day in Mexico is not just for lovers, but also for friends. I thought that was a nice touch.

Tu B'Av Aug 16, 2019 F Jewish holiday of love, similar to Valentine's Day

(and yes i know valentines was a massacre, its the love part thats similar)

Then again I do recall you were chilling champagne and inviting all of us over for a post-Hillary victory toast.

If nothing else, the 2016 elections proved that the pollsters need to find full-time employment elsewhere.

I usually think that voting is pointless. Then there is the occasional vote with only a handful difference between winner and loser. Voting also gives me a smidgen of the feeling that I'm speaking up, not unlike taking part in a demonstration.

Usually I dress for the occasion. Sometimes it's my Mondale Ferraro t-shirt, sometimes my Kennedy-Johnson button or a very faded Clinton Gore t-shirt. Thing One, of course, has her "Make Congress Blue Again" ball cap.

I honestly do not believe it works, but in the event that I am wrong, it cannot hurt even if the act itself seems futile to me.

All I know is I have to find a way to support whatever movement is out there to end this political crisis we find ourselves in. This last week alone has proven just how dangerous it is. So much so that even the conservatives are acquiescing that a lot "just ain't right". And that is huge. Imagine. We all just might end up on the same side.

Nah, I believe I'll still have met my wife. One thing I haven't learned in my 40 years since college is how to navigate the dating scene. So I would have followed the same path. It also has a lot to do with how we met.

I don't know - I really would prefer not to go through that teen years angst again.

But on the other hand, there are wonderful moments I'd love to be able to re-live.

P.S. Just saw this on an SP friend's feed:

"You are not who your past says you are. You are who you choose to be going forward."

Better yet, she wrote that it was spoken by a character on a Navy Crime show, Linda Hunt's character. A TV character has greater wisdom than out home team gents.

SAndy, you'd be miserable at 16 with the head of a 63-year old. If, for example, you felt like a misfit as a teenager, you'd feel it moreso if you went in with your wizened head (yeah, yeah, I get it: you'd look 16 and the wizening would be on the inside).

Boys, IT CAN'T WORK. Sorry to break it to you.

Sandy, what you're asking is exactly what people intend when they say, "If I had it to do over..." The trick is that we wouldn't have the added wisdom to do the old things differently given another go at them. I dunno, maybe it's the space-time continuum thing. We'll always be the same 20, not 20 with the insight of an additional 30 or so more years.

It doesn't work on a calculator or slide rule. What would be the point anyway? Happier memories? It makes more sense to find a way to make "today" happier, i.e., better, whenever "today" may be.

I believe that whatever occurred back then, helped create who and what you are now.

Part of learning is taking that and learning to let go. That's part of growth. Playing "wudda, cudda, shudda" serves no purpose whatsoever. It only allows you to be forever stuck.

Maybe that is true for you, and in some things true for me. Not this one, for me. At all.

Mark, you bring to mind all the times I've heard people say, "If I could go back and do it over,...." One time when it came up a great many years ago, it hit me that none of us would do whatever-it-was differently given a second chance. We'd do the only thing we had within us the first time around. We'd be in the same place and behave the same way.

Zero fun. I'd sign up for the time travel do-over.

Beautiful picture!

I had way too much college fun - it was great and two of my roommates are still my dearest friends, so I feel lucky on that count. I also enjoyed high school, so maybe I'm just strange that way. My son, who just graduated, seemed to have found more of a balance in college than I did. Must have gotten that part of his personality from my husband! emoticon

didn't have a whole lot of fun in college first time around. am starting to have the fun I should have had back then -- I won't say how long ago but I remember watching the Watergate hearings on TV while in college the first time.

College is a time to enjoy NOT being a full, 100% responsible adult. Most of us don't get a chance to be like that again until retirement.

He'll be a working member of the community soon enough.

I am a few years older than your son, and I am still trying to find "balance".

Usually, an "all or nothing" thing with me, depending on the circumstances. Often enough "moment to moment crisis management".

I hope he publishes his secret. Can't hurt the rest of us shlubs.

My son (Thing Two) iis having the fun in college that I did not. And then some. There is a balance - he seems perhaps to be starting to find it

Yeah, she's landing on her feet for sure. This summer she is working for a lobbyist who advocates for senior citizens in DC on health care and mobility issues - most anything seniors have no choice but to spend money on. Last summer it was one about safety in children's toys and products. She's meeting people, networking, getting potential leads on permanent positions. She's also worked for political groups like the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and such. Those opportunities are out there in election years.

Gwyn, they are teasing you: the one on the right is Mark's wife, Susan. The newly-minted graduate on the left is their daughter, the superstar.

Out celebrating something special?

What kind of internship did she find? Government or lobbyist or nonprofit or ...? I'm thinking it's nice to have all those opportunities close to home.

One looks vaguely related to you. The other, too, but only because of duration and patience, not to mention fortitude..

No idea. Just two random people I guess. They look vaguely related to one another though.
