Homesick for people with manners

OK - I am sick of east-coasters and their rude behavior. I am 25 miles from our nation's capital, and it is no wonder to me that we are as screwed up as a county as we are when I witness all the RUDE people here. People will say ANYTHING....there is absolutely no filter between the brain and the mouth. I had someone come up to me the other day and tell me my hair looked like sh*t! WHAT!?!? In the great state of Oklahoma, and in every other civilized part of the country, this crap would not fly. Even if my hair DOES look like sh*t, no one would just say that to me like they were asking the time of day. And the children - if I had talked like that to my mother I promise you that my mouth would have been slapped onto the back of my head. Everyone here is "entitled;" entitled say whatever floate into their pea brain, even if it hurts someone else. At least in Oklahoma they would say it behind my back and not to my face which is EVER so much better! And if someone if talking about you, people here delight in telling you all the gory details over, and over, and over again because they are sure "you would want to know."

I don't want to know. Ignorance truly is bliss.

Enough of the rant.

Last night was another puppy class - a St. Bernard has joined us. Twenty-two pounds at 9 weeks. Keep Bob and me in your prayers.

That is a horrible story. I think that it is a sign that y'all should move back to the HEARTland. I would not put up with that crap....How are you liking your puppy classes? Aren't they fun?

I am fortunate to live amongst the polite and courteous Texans and Oklahomans. There is truly a different mindset in this part of the country. Tell Bob I will pray for him in his studies. Should he desire religious training, perhaps I can recommend a good madrassa.

No - not a stranger - someone who is supposed to be a "friend" which is worse!!!!! I am very homesick and having a pity party. Surely this, too, shall pass.

Thank you, ayatollah, for your prayers. We are Episcopalian, but I would never force that decision on Bob - he is his own dog in that area.
