      BTW, the people who have the arrangement in post’s subject picture don’t have cats, or the vase would be knocked over and they would be wrestling with the pumpkins.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Well I can do that table scape even with 🐈. Just use a tall basket 🧺 . With silk flowers. Regular Table cloth in place of the artfully placed runner. make sure the pumpkins 🎃 are stuffed fabric With no bits of glitter or randomly placed sequins or string like add-ons. And be ready to redo and redo and redo………and accept that you may need extra pumpkins as the cats claim them one by one as kicker toys.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        I am ready to remove Joliet Jake’s paws. He is knocking EVERYTHING over and is driving me crazy. But he only does this while I am trying to work. He wants attention, you say? No, he fucking hates me. When I give him attention he runs away. He is beautiful and arrogant. So Fraaaanch.

      Lol, I was just coming to post that Denise.

    Love the arrangement, especially the velvet pumpkins.❤🎃

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Me too. 😀

    • Constance says:

      I know! There is something accessible about it. The funny thing is I thought “looks like the cat rearranged the arrangement”. It never occurred to me that the scarf was draped like that by a human,

      Squirrel 🐿 ?
      Maybe it’s just on the tablet but the squirrel emoji that popped up on auto suggest looks suspiciously like a chipmunk.
      Does Alvin work for 🍎.
      Chipmunk 🐿!
      Yep. So are the they just being lazy, figure most will not notice or do they not know they are not one in the the same. Given some of the odd gaps in basics I encounter it would not surprise me it’s the later.

    I have learned so much coming here over the years. Biggest thing is forgiveness. Often you wonderful souls have talked about parenting a sick kid. I was on the other side. They literally took a saw to my chest. Used an experimental wire to put me back together. It didn’t work. Wires broke and tore me asunder from the inside. It was a horror film. My mother screamed. A scream that made Jamie Lee Curtis look like June Cleaver. I thought it was 15 minutes on the hour. My mom informed it was 5 minutes. That was all a toddler got. Five minutes as I lay dying. I have wondered if I should have been allowed to go back then. I get so tired and I can never sleep. Shay is doing well so I’d take it again.
    I’ve been told I look like Montgomery Clift with better eyes. Some times it hurts to be looked upon with favor. I have a fractured chest. One side is half an inch higher than the other cause they done did fuck up when they put this humpty dumpty together again. I shave and see trach scar.
    I think I shared this before. Somehow I kept humor. I was at an indoor swim party in Philly. Camille Paglia was there. I invited her to come see my band at JC Dobbs. A Pretty Boy in Agony was the name of my pretend band. I don’t/didn’t have a band but I am not above a lie when talking to a world renown feminist. Completely Off was my first single that never took place.
    Anyhow most blue babies end up with retardation. I had a couple of holes. Oxygen doesn’t get to brain. Because the world was not yet done fucking with me I skipped 2nd and 6th grade. Gee that’s how you normalize a freak child. Gets better. I was 16 snorting blow. Went to take my SAT’s drunk. I don’t know what the numbers are now but I got 1560. I was trashed. Full scholarship to Purdue. College was not on my horizon. We couldn’t even afford a phone. I went to a good school thinking engineers drove trains.
    Another tickler. People confuse my Dolly love with camp. The gay drag stuff. Nothing could be less true. It’s the words. I love how she writes. Raw simplicity. I’ve adored her since forever. Way before it was trendy.
    Maybe I’ll go to rehab AGAIN. Perhaps I won’t. I did 100 days last time then I ended up in ER after using the back extender in gym. Not excusing but they gave my tylenol. Tylenol? I got Grey Goose. I was in go to Emergency extreme pain. Tylenol? Not making excuses, but back pain when it happens is violent. Dora had Tom in ER. Tylenol is a joke. They would not give me anything strong because docs had over prescribed in the past. The irony. Raging drunk doesn’t get needed pain pills so he downs a bottle and then heads off to the races.

    What a lovely fresh smell in here today! Thanks, Team TCH!

  8. Dora says:

    Good Morning and Happy Columbus Day.

    Oh My1 Yikes!

  9. Mothy67 says:

    There is an ad for Criminal Minds that features Paget Brewster. She says come at mine and I will end you. How my world works. Anyone can say what ever to me about me. I don’t care. Convinced I have been called far worse by far better. Come at anyone I care about well then you done fucked up. I need to rewatch The Hunt. It is so funny.

    • jadzia1971 says:

      Paget Brewster is actually on a show that didn’t get canceled? I love her but every time I watch her in something, the show gets the ax like half a season later.

  10. Mothy67 says:

    I think I might maybe check into rehab. I can’t keep going like this. I am scared I will lose my best friend. Liquor has kept me going. I was able to keep it in check since 1982. Tim Carr’s wife ran into me at poker machine. She served a dIsh I did not want to eat. Tim hit me pretty bad in high school. Nothing special there. Lots of people found my body worth breaking. She would not stop talking about how my dad hired Tim and changed his life. I said stop. I ran from my father. He had a temper and I’m the only one he hit. Maybe my heart condition represented weakness. I’d see the spark of anger in his eye and I knew to run fast. I don’t need a booze chick telling me how great my dad was to her husband back then. I got to know my dad and I treasured him. We read Ayn Rand together.

    I had to drink as a kid. There was not another way to survive for me. When I told my parents I thought I was gay they fell apart. I walked into booze store and asked for the worst thing for the worst person. He didn’t miss a beat handed me Mad Dog 20/20. It was grape flavored wine?!?! How is that a thing?
    I got to know my dad. My decision. I couldn’t have made it without drinking. I stood out. Not my choice. I had boys jump out of a car and piss all over me. I had taken the bus home from dish washing shift my mom left a note could I buy Virginia Slims. I walked down the hill. They jumped out of an el camino. Beat me, pissed on me. I went so numb. I got my mom her smokes. Put them on table went outside kicked in a basement window and slept on the cold cement. I had no one. Parents hated gays. I survived, but I drank. I have always consumed more than my share. I needed it to cope. Now it can kill me.

    • elliesmom says:

      You need to go to rehab to stop drinking yourself to death, and while you’re there, you need some help dealing with why you drink. It’s not just about quitting. It’s also dealing with the demons. You have a lot of them hanging onto your back. If you can’t get rid of them, you at least need to get them caged so they can’t ruin your life now. And find a support group for Shay. Read Constance’s posts, and then get out the phonebook for both you. Don’t saddle Shay with demons, too. ❤

      I don't know what the monster said about my dad, and I don't want to know. OK?

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Ala-teen I took Al-anon as well as AA. Double Dipper. 😀

        • swanspirit says:

          I did Al-Anon, and CODA, for over a decade. Saved my life, gave me peace, serenity, and insight. A lot of kids blame themselves for their parents drinking and behaviors. Ala-teen clears that up.

          • jadzia1971 says:

            Don’t ask me why I am asking you this (it is not about the H man), but is Al-Anon appropriate for the FRIENDS of an alcoholic? I have a very close friend who has been struggling for years, and for reasons I’m not going to get into, I remain very entangled with her and will continue to be for at least the next several years. And it is wearing me down even though I accepted long ago that there is really nothing I can do to make her want to change.

    • votermom says:

      Check into rehab, Mothy, you can do it. Have you ever done AA?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Just before my stroke last year, I was a functional alcoholic smoking a half pack a day and popping generic nightime cold and sinus meds at bedtime to breath easier. One morning I woke up on the floor unable to move. A team of EMTs showed up to transport me down a flight of steps into an ambulance and off to the ER where another team of “specialists” poked and probed me like a Roswell alien. At one point, lying completely naked while they attached wires and probed some more. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t talk or answer the dozens of questions they kept asking. For the first time I knew what it was like being totally helpless in my body, but aware. Scary shit.

      I’m now about 95% recovered, except for left sided weakness and balance issues, I feel great and the use of a cane helps my confidence.

      I was lucky. I stopped drinking and smoking on stroke day because a doctor was honest with me >>>>>>>>>>>> “I know you’re lying to me about how much you smoke and drink, but a stroke doesn’t care about quantity. You’ll recover from this one, but the next one may kill you, or worse, it may not and you’ll spend the rest of life struggling for a quality of life wishing you were dead.” They still didn’t know what caused this one, so I’m just covering my ass. Chances are it was a blood pressure spike, not controlled by meds. I miss my cigs and happy hours every day, it’s not easy 😉

      • lateblum says:

        Your stroke scared the sh*t out of more than just you. I’m happy to know you decided to make all those “adjustments”. We need you here. ❤️

        • DeniseVB says:

          Thanks sweetie. I had years (like mothy and cisco) of procrastination, I had to get scared straight 😀

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          We are so blessed 💗to have you and yes you scarred the heck out of many a TCHer.

          In fact, you are the reason I did not even argue when I saw the readings each day during my two weeks of monitoring blood pressure after some not so happy blips at the center. I submitted every bit of data collected to my doc and said here is more than you asked for, thought it would help you determine dosage as it is clear there will be medication.

        • jadzia1971 says:

          You’re right about that. Just like my ex’s colon adventures have scared me straight, after many years of eating like shit (mostly because I was so depressed and miserable about how he treated me, but that’s another subject), into eating a healthier diet. And I feel so much better for it.

          • lateblum says:

            I hope you can feel better from now on. I guess there’s a silver lining to most clouds. We just have to survive – or fight hard – to find it 💕

      • Miranda says:

        Aunt quit smoking cold turkey after congestive heart failure in 2019. Nothing like a blood O2 of 43 to bring it home. This was after being a pack a day for 56 years.

    • lateblum says:

      Mothy, I can’t know what it’s like to be you, but judging from your writings, it could be better.
      Yesterday, Constance said it better than anyone. EM said it today. Read Denise upthread and take the first step back to rehab. We aren’t going anywhere. We’re here for you and for one another.

  11. Mothy67 says:

    My favorite words are When in disgrace I don’t need the rest of the Sonnet. Those three words move me. I fuck up. Everyone does. I get to take a chance on life.
    Meatloaf. I love Meatloaf. Boy eats all the meatloaf. He is Shay’s boyfriend. He eats and then he eats.
    I really know nothing about anything. I is dumb. How fun I love Two out of Three Ain’t Bad

  12. elliesmom says:

    Today is the day I go into the lion’s den. She’s already on FB trying to ferret out who has gone for a booster yet. My Texas friend is bringing a bottle of wine, and I just pulled a quiche out of the oven. She and I are prepared to eat it out on the porch. (She’s the one I really want to see. If she wasn’t going to be there, I’d join the zoom call.)

  14. Dora says:

    Tidal Wave of Citizens hits Rome to protest DeathVaxx Pass requirement for work

    In the largest political protest since the Plandemic was launched, Italian citizens from all over the peninsula descended upon Rome to protest the introduction on October 15th of the obligation to have the DeathVaxx Passport in order to work, in the private or public sector, and effective death sentence for the poor, who must either now chose the DeathVaxx and die, or chose tri-weekly swabs at the cost of 45 euros, and thus die from want of salary, or stop working and thus starve to death.

    • swanspirit says:

      I wonder if she will call it another insurrection. 😂

    • Helen Kenney says:

      seeing that hypocrite palosi in a catholic church, or with the pope, turns my stomach. these are the same people who would not give my mom the last rites because she was divorced and remarried. guess money does talk

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        You are not alone. Regular Joe’s and Jane’s have been vilified for years for simply getting out of oppressive and often harmful marriages yet evil incarnate is welcomed and upset when a mirror is held up to reflect her dark soul..

      • jadzia1971 says:

        My mother was treated similarly and I have such a terrible relationship with the Church because of it. My childhood memories of Mass are her sitting in the back row trying to look invisible during Communion. I miss being part of a religious/spiritual community, but between that old resentment and how the Church treated its people during the pandemic? I think I’m done.

  16. Mothy67 says:

    I am going to admit me once again. Don’t know if it will work. I’m really kind of a fun drunk. But I’ll die if I keep going. Shay matters. I can’t not try.
    Thanks for all the kind words. Booze helped me stay alive back then. It got me through shit. I was addicted in high school. I needed vodka. I played for 30 plus years. I will die if I keep it up. Time to pay the piper. It’s about little one. My brat. My dying is not my concern. I am beyond bored by me. I don’t want to leave her not without a struggle. I believe in her and have to fight if I want her to thrive. I’ve been next to her for15 years. I cherish relative stories. Shay won’t be telling one. Not on my watch. Bits related were sweet. I love my brat I don’t want her online saying my uncle drank himself to death twenty year from now.
    Yes vmom I have been to AA.
    So I am going to smoke then uber to rehab –
    Wish me luck. I’m scared. Very scared.

      Oh good. That sounds like moving in the right direction.

    • jentx says:

      You can do it. Project your love for her into bravery for YOU. You have a kind heart and a beautiful spirit. We NEED you. She needs you. And you deserve to see her grow up and America get her freedom back 🙂

      • Mothy67 says:

        I missed you. We come from different worlds. I get better when others share. You took off in anger. That is not how it works. My first rehab a man showed up. I thought he was black but he had blue blue eyes. He was a mole person. Police found him living in the subway and sent him to rehab. He reeked. He was pissing through his skin. Kidney and liver had taken holiday. I got to know him. He got off the bus. A child. His mom waited for school bus then she jumped off the roof as he watched. I got to know him, well. I took a small chance to know him as an adult. The therapists were cruel. He had no teeth. I don’t think there are many dentists underground. I met many with sad sagas. A guy I lived with in rehab refused to shower or change his socks. He smelled so bad. Well that is less than half the story. He was arrested on Staten Island for pot. Thrown in jail. He got raped repeatedly. 18 made prison bitch. He tried to make himself disgusting.
        I respect your anger. I have tons of my own. Sometimes we might grow by listening. I share your thoughts on covid jab, but I don’t have cancer. People had to take shot to get treatment. Should I , can I judge. I have never met a bigger idiot than me. I know nothing about anything. I love your rants. They are splendid. Neither you nor I are facing cancer. Others here have and had to decide. Not my or your choice. Please, please rage but if I may ask see others might be rocking a different story.

  18. Mothy67 says:

    My big fear is about music. I drift away. Give me the beat that frees my soul. Getting drunk with Otis Redding was a joy. Sitting on the dock of the bay. How bland will sober Tim be — dull if Tim is not drunk.
    I made the decision. I called insurance. I am going. It is about brat I may have had my suffering so I could have my guilt but I have no right to pass it on.
    Ugh Tori Amos

    • dm says:

      It’s a tough decision and I understand you want your daughter to have a sober father, but do it for yourself, learn to love sober Tim…we will still be here for you, reading your interesting life stories, laughing and crying with you.

      • Mothy67 says:

        Not my daughter. She is my grand niece. I accepted her when there was no one. I put on those shoes. I own history. She won’t watch last season of Shameless because Frank dies. He was funny but a drunk.

      • Constance says:

        That is the issue. You need to love yourself. Drinking is indulging yourself now loving yourself.

I discovered The Crawdad Hole years later. Klown lives in Merced and went to high school with a Staynor.

    Happy Columbus Day! And thank you Columbus and others that followed for bringing diversity to the Americas. It was racist to not welcome refuges back then, and not give them free everything funded by the natives already there. Obviously.

  26. Helen Kenney says:

    I do not remember ever having an American administration that helps our enemies (funding and arming them), but declares war on American parents. Destroys our economy, restricts our travel. weakens our military. this is a new thing to me. also sounds a lot like treason to me.

  31. Mothy67 says:

    I went and got smokes because there won’t be smoking for the next month. I am feeling a bit down as I’m waiting for a ride to rehab. Walk into store Joan Jett was blaring I love Rock n Roll. I work shopped Rocky Horror with her thirty years ago.

    • elliesmom says:

      I’m assuming you’re going to be incommunicado from us for a few weeks, too. Every morning at 8am I’ll be sending you good thoughts to make it through one more day. Reach out and catch them. ❤

      • Mothy67 says:

        Steve backed out on taking me.
        I might try tomorrow. Don’t know. Whatever becomes of me I want to thank you. I am kind of strong willed. My downfall. Few could ever hold me accountable. I have been put in my place by you. No one challenges me. I mean no one dares come at Timothy. I hit back. You made me look at Daniel my brother ( cue Elton John) when he started dating a woman whose husband committed suicide. I reflected and I heard you. Dan is marrying woman. I had to get out of the way.

        Sometimes Three wickets comes in handy. I did a few years working in Hollywood. Clooney was never a bankable star. His movies don’t make money. I sold ad time. He was never a cash cow. Jim Carry made me a lot of money. Clooney was what people magazine wanted you to believe a star was. Trump was right saying he was no Gary Cooper. He sold his tequila brand for a billion dollars. A billion dollars. I worked in some of New York’s most famous restaurants. Not once ever did anyone order Casaamigos. Not once. He sold it for a billion. A billion! For tequila no one drinks?!?!?!

      • jadzia1971 says:

        I thought Clooney had just moved to the south of France? When we were on the Cote d’Azur this summer (IN A CHEAP FAMILY RESORT), it was all anybody could talk about.

        What is the deal with Loudoun County and te school board? Did TPTB think if they picked some county in VA that the rest of the country had never heard of to start the social rape of the public school system they could use it as a model for the rest of us?

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Loudoun is the northwestern corner of Northern Virginia (abut West Virginia) and still has a too many deplorables who have not been indoctrinated. Virginia, the rest of Northern Virginia and the social justice warrior crowd such as the Loudoun county school board are hell bent on going over the edge of woke and taking everyone with them.
