I so enjoy/ed having you post here - saw a painting of you as George Washington, yesterday? but was on the way to the oral surgeon with a husband in tooth agony and didn't have time to comment. I loved it!

I wish you knew how much I appreciate you and your input and posts and paintings here and how disappointing it is to sign on this morning and you are no longer here.

Most others who have moved on haven't bothered me so much, it was time, but you I've always looked forward to your posts. I do respect, though, that clearly, you think it is time, too.

Take care out there in the world. I hope you decide to come back but if not, so be it.

As for me, I'll be back after our week off, dancing at a huge hippie fest that's gone on for over 50 years, off in the mini-forest, under a canopy of trees, a get away we haven't participated in in over two decades.

Getting back to our dancing roots - while all our sons take over the homestead, here.

Best to you and big hugs, dear one.

xoxo  Anna

Okay, looked for some brilliant insightful quote to add and.... nada. but this one seemed most like my thoughts and feelings today, and what seems to be disappearing in the world, everywhere (hence our deciding to head to the hippie fest stuffed with wonderful weird people and music and dance and sculptors and painters and artists and freaks).

Be well ~

poets, misfits, writers

I'm not in court Ron. 

You should know however that lawyers often say they cannot relate the contents of a confidential conversation that occurred.

You have more letters to write.

@AKA; "You should know however that lawyers often say they cannot relate the contents of a confidential conversation that occurred."

A principal tenet of the attorney's code of professional ethics is confidentiality. The lawyer-client privilege re said confidentiality is universally recognized and protected in the American legal system...

When lawyers invoke the privilege or, as you put it, "often say they cannot relate the contents of a confidential conversation that occurred", they do so in the context of the general awareness and knowledge that such a 'confidential' conversation had , in fact, occurred.

Where there is no such general awareness of the occurrence of a confidential exchange, a good lawyer would not disclose the fact of its occurrence unless compelled to do so...

But then you're absolutely correct. We're not in court and you're certainly not a lawyer....

..although my co-workers and attorneys I work with often say I should have chosen that career.

MS,
Yeah, we’re different. That’s as it should be. We come from our own perspectives, histories, and dispositions. Doesn’t make me respect you less.

@AKA; "..although my co-workers and attorneys I work with often say I should have chosen that career."

Had you done so, you would probably be in full and complete agreement with me, court or no court....

There are times when the application of certain rules or principles can transcend the specific or narrow purpose for which they were enunciated....

SB, I completely know what you mean

Why are we talking about whether AKA should have mentioned that FM PM’d him? If the President gets an intelligence briefing, acknowledging the existence of the briefing is not a breach of National Security or a violation of clearance. In fact, we already know that previous Presidents got them daily. We’d be surprised if the President didn’t, as would the Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, and Iranians. We can use National Security with as much validity as Attorney-Client Privilege being as neither applies here.

I don't suppose you can imagine the number of brieings, consultations, and, conferences the Presidents get without our knowledge or awareness...

A PM is a private/personal message if I were in AKA's shoes I'd have kept the whole thing to myself unless disclosure of both the PM AND its contents pertinent to this discussion were warranted...

I don't know why you're "surprised" that you didn't get a PM... Don't care...

Evidently you do enough to have mentioned it...

The fact that AKA had an "in depth" PM conversation re why she left is nobody's business but theirs....

It should have been kept that way...

Comment by Maui Surfer on July 12, 2018 at 9:07pm

Kosh, actually makes me respect you more, I like leaders nothing against followers, but they do nothing to inspire me. You have, more than once. A particular note stands out, even among all the rest. And of course, there is the now famous, "Capitalism without regs is like a Ferrari without a mechanic" or some paraphrase of that ...

Ouch!
If
flounces were ounces the OS cup would brim over!

"Foolish Monet we miss you already!" Hart said, struggling, taken by song: '...you packed in the morning...'
I'd written adulation of your recent 'silvery-misted Mayflower at dawn' seascape and ought to have torqued-up the keyboard for Hartian complimentary gushes.
Sincere donkashane for your glib intellectualism and unselfish camaraderie during the past decade. Take care, hon.

Anna Herrington:thanks for this boo-hoo-what-next-news ('...lullabies look in your eyes...'} please advise if you've Foolish's personal website when you're back from the Woodstock redux~(barefoot girls I bet!).
