    Should we refer to "thingy" talk as a Lucyism or Marleyism?

    What are you guys talking about? Are you saying that 'hood-propper thingy' isn't a technical/mechanical term?

    Of course it is.. Thingy is a universal term that represents every technical/mechanical device known to man.

    While I occasionally use that word too, to me it means something... entirely different.

    I was thinking the same thing. Glad I'm not the only one with my mind in the gutter! Uh, that WAS what you were thinking, right, Lucy?

    My foot has been sore for 2 weeks. I couldn't take it anymore and went to a foot doctor (one benefit of not having insurance is that you don't need to see your GP first). He said I had tendinitis and needed a cortisone shot. I figured the only thing more painful than the shot (I needed 2) was the bill for it. The office manager said that normally it would cost $75 for the shot, because the stuff is so expensive, but since I couldn't afford that they would just charge me for the $32 office visit. With all of the crappy things happening to me lately, this was a wonderful gift.

    I always thought doctors never did anything for nothin', but since I lost my insurance their generosity to me has been both incredibly welcome and humbling.

    Glad to hear it, dberk. Nothing is quite as frightening as not being able to afford proper medical care or adequate health insurance, except maybe developing a health problem while not adequately covered.

    I can imagine what a relief and what gratitude you must feel. My best wishes toward your good health.

    I was starting to shovel out the car from our 2 foot snowfall the other day when the man who owns the rental house across from me was plowing his tenant's driveway. He saw me shovelling by hand and plowed my longish driveway without asking and without accepting a cent. It took him 2 minutes and would have taken me 2 hours. That was really a treat.
    Count your blessings!

    I just wanted to say that Libra1022 is one of the most generous unselfish people I've had the pleasure of calling a friend. I'm blessed with wonderful friends online and off! Libs is buying me a ticket to see my very favorite band, Erasure, in Orlando Florida. Plus I get the fun of hanging out with her for a week. Love ya, Sis
