    This is a messing around thread. It can wander anywhere. All are welcome. It is Level 2 of the Other Thread.

    There is still:

    "I remember the good old days around here, just thought I'd see if there is anything left."

    Rampant quotes.

    Rampant YouTube.

    Rampant nonsense.

    Rampant https://hubpages.com/community/forum/14 … ost2909333

    Basically your messing round, complaining, bragging, observing, contemplating thread.

    You never know what you toss out there that might really help someone.

            I was a copyeditor for a newspaper for 3 years and a legal editor for our state's legislators for 30 years (bills, acts, law books), and I think I qualify as an expert witness that there are good people who are bad writers!

      Don't give up on your flash fiction.  You can collect them into a book and self publish it - I know a number of people who are selling their on Amazon and while they won't get rich off the proceeds they are making a bit regularly.  I have one I am working on with different lengths.  Good luck.

    Home Depot has ATM’s. I did not know that. I decided I needed $40. I put in my card and made the request. The ATM informed me in effect, “Sorry, dude. Am offline.”

    I really needed that $40.

    Home Depot has sledgehammers. That I did know. I went and got one.

    I once again properly addressed the ATM. Once again, no joy. Home Depot could no longer sell the sledgehammer as new. Sorry about that.

    As for the ATM and money scattered all over the floor, I really did feel bad. But I really needed that $40. I even left a note on what was left of the ATM so they could deduct it from my account.

    I went about my business...

    While standing in the checkout line 15 minutes later, two nice police officers showed up.

    “Hi,” said I.

    “You’re under arrest,” said they.

    The cot was quite comfy. But alas, they took my $40.

    Hubpages was GREAT once upon a time. I rarely write articles these days because it's no longer fun/engaging/profitable/etc. EXAMPLE: I'm an art historian / writer LIVING in Florence, Italy. I've been researching the Medici family for over 10 years. I wrote an interesting article about a famous gown that belonged to Eleonora di Toledo (propaganda fashion). It was featured in a local newspaper (Florence News) and praised by my colleagues. Hubpages refuses to feature the article. YET....they will publish and feature the most useless, stupid, opinion based crap.

      They are refusing to feature it because you haven't kept up with the latest rules, that's all.  You've featured two books on Amazon without giving a review of them, and it's obvious the second one is written by you (which counts as self promotion).  Your layout would look bad on a mobile phone, too.

    A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children,  needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner who wanted to reoccupy the home.

    But he was having a lot of difficulty finding a new house.

    When he said, he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt that the children would destroy the place.  He couldn't say he had no children, because he couldn't lie, we all know lawyers cannot and do not lie.

    So, he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids. He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with the real estate agent.  He loved one of the homes and the price was right -- the agent asked: "How many children do you have?

    He answered: "Twelve."

    The agent asked, "Where are the others?"

    The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look answered
    "They're in the cemetery with their mother."

    MORAL: It's not necessary to lie, one only has to choose the right words.

    Something is happening out of the ordinary.

        It's been answered umpteen dozen times, mostly with the same answers phrased differently, over and over and over again, ad nauseum!
        The question in question (hahaha--couldn't resist that one), is, "Is it normal for your dog to follow you around the house?"

    That doesn't make sense. There is some sort of logic flaw here, Marisa. If you don't answer, then you, in part , are one of the reasons, by your lack of involvement, that questions get no indexed. A lack of involvement means a lack of answers. Including your own. Maybe that's how everyone thinks. Asking and answering questions thoughtfully does, you know, influence your score, if that is an incentive.

                    You, me, and a few billion other people. lol

                    Meanwhile, HP Ad Program CPM is doing pretty good these days. However, really getting fed up with traffic. Why can't Google recognize brilliance when they see it?

    An uninspired forum day. Got some writing and website work done though. Visitor traffic stabilized since yesterday's crash and burn. I've never seen such wide, weekly swings in traffic before; the worst day being literally half the best day and the best day being literally double the worst day.

    Well, today was supposed to be a business-of-living getting stuff done day. Instead, it turned into a writing-all-day day. Now I'm stuck with having to do double tomorrow. Tired just thinking about it, but I'll muddle through. And I'm sure Donald will throw in some entertainment along the way.

    Monday morning it now is. Already published a new web page. Rest of day and week dedicated to Real World usual treadmill of challenges. That and checking the news to see what the latest messes are. I'd like to do some forum memes along the way like in the good old days, but that spark seems to have just plain died; don't know why; we shall see. Leastwise I'll still drop by with my usual idiotic comments now and then. See? There was one just now. Onward and upward.

      I have been following this thread.  I remember when things were more lively.  We could follow each other around and read together.  Sorry I haven't commented.  I seem to have lost touch with my wittyness, lol.

        I know what you mean. Same here, though occasionally it still returns. I liked what your profile had to say.
