    Ok, so she was kidding, but she still threatened me.

    RUTHIE17 pointed out that I spelled something wrong in my profile and she said that she was allowed to be picky because she's an old lady. yikes

    If I didn't like what she was telling me, she said that it was too bad and that she'd poke me with her cane if I had a problem with it...I gotta admit, I like her style. I feel right at home now.

    Needless to say, I fixed it and kept my mouth shut.

      Ryan, darlin', this old lady joke is just for you:

      An older lady was somewhat lonely, and decided that she needed a pet to keep her company. So off to the pet shop she went. She searched and searched around the shop but nothing seemed to catch her interest, except this one ugly frog.

      As she walked by the barrel he was in, he looked up and winked at her! He whispered, "I'm lonely too, buy me and you won't be sorry."

      The old Lady figured, what the heck, as she hadn't found anything else. So, she bought the frog and went to her car. Driving down the road the frog whispered to her, "Kiss me, you won't be sorry." So, the old lady figured what the heck, and kissed the frog.

      Immediately the frog turned into an absolutely gorgeous, sexy, handsome, young prince. Then the prince kissed her back, and you know what the old lady turned into?

      The first motel she could find.  She was old, not dead!  smile

      Me too.

      ryanhupfer, I don't know if you and Ruthie17 are friends, in which case you are poking a joke, or if you are not friends and you need to get a thicker skin.

      So if you fixed it and you are keeping your mouth shut, why this post?  The cartoon is cute, but it's not all that funny.

      Just wonderin'.

          I saw your post before you changed it, ProCW.  So thanks for the info.  I didn't know who Ryan is (I'm not on the inside).

          I came to Ruthie's defense, because it didn't sound like a joke.  She's a great lady who has a lot to say to the benefit of us all.

          Ryan, I think this thread that you started may be counterproductive.  If a few Hubbers know the joke already, and only those few participate in the forums, then it's funny.  But, how many members are there here who are not in on the joke?  And to them, what does that say about Ruthie17?

          Like I said, just wonderin', from the perspective of being on the outside.

          Best regards, always, Sally.

    It sure sounded like a joke to me. And I, for one, believe we can all use a little humor these days.

        schhhhh!

        ... there are people here with me who think I´m crazy and delirious for laughing to a computer big_smile.

    Reason #1:  I thought that it was hilarious and I am sure that me and Ruthie are going to get along just fine. smile

    Reason #2: I have never been threatened with a cane before today.

    Reason #3: I am one of the most random people that you will ever meet.

    Reason #4: So that other Hubbers post random replies asking why I even posted it in the first place.

    Yeah, I just found out that my license has been suspended (still trying to sort that one out). So riding around on a cool bus sounds like fun to me!

    Hey Sally,

    I was just returning the joke to Ruth, who hopefully saw it as what it was supposed to be - something funny to get people talking and enjoying themselves here in the Hubber's Hangout, which is meant to be a place to have some fun every now and then.

    If she took it the wrong way, I'll be the first to apologize. It also seems that everyone else has picked up on the joke right away, so hopefully nobody took me too seriously with the whole thing.

    As far as my position with HubPages goes, practically no one knew that I was part of the team - but I did announce it over here in my first post, so it might not have been clear.

    We have actually been thinking of adding something to our forum posts so that everyone knows that we're a member of the HubPages team, but nothing that's been officially decided.

    Anyways, moral of the story is that I know I can be a little over the top sometimes, but it's all done in the name of having fun and never meant to upset anyone in particular.

    J-E-L-L-O. smile

      Oh, Ryan, you poor boy, I think you put your foot in your mouth with this one!!  http://www.shareapic.net/preview3/010599074.jpg

      I got the joke and am smiling!!  Not laughing out loud, but smiling. 

      Whacking you with a cane was sort of symbolic.  Let's clear up a few points and see if we can get you out of this hot water you've leaped into.  http://www.shareapic.net/preview3/010599081.gif

      I don't use a cane, not quite that decrepit yet and I DO NOT look that old!  Yes, a couple of my fellow Hubbers (you guys know who you are) have helped me back into my chair but it wasn't because of age.

      I thank all my friends here at HubPages for coming to my defense.  Hugs and Kisses to each and everyone of you!!  Please don't send the Jackalope or Mighty Hunter or anyone else after Ryan. http://www.shareapic.net/preview3/010599078.jpg

      I'm letting him off the hook this time!  http://www.shareapic.net/preview3/010599085.gif

      Ryan, I make you this promise.  The next time I see a spelling error in ANY of your work, I'll just keep quiet about it. OK?

      For now, have some pie---all is forgiven on my part!!   Let's be friends!!  smile    http://www.shareapic.net/preview3/010599082.gif
