Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

Hmmm...I don't know. I am not that familiar with kettle bell classes yet but we are only using one at a time and the exercises are designed only for one.

Actually, the mother in this family is deceased, too. But the father is one of my husband's best friends, and he says that one of the harder things about losing a child is that people are afraid to talk about the child for fear of upsetting the family. But many families want, even need, to talk about their memories of their deceased children. He says he never forgets he lost his son, so he doesn't need reminding of him, but when someone shares a memory or calls on his son's birthday or whatever, his son seems more "real" to him after all these years.

You're not keeping up, PKA. Thardy 'a rules and Jamblessed's ethical scruples don't apply to Morty. Did you forget AGAIN?

I must have forgot the double standard, perhaps that is how one gets around insulting a "friend" in such a public way.

I often use two kettle bells (in fact, they can be purchased in pairs ...) but sometimes only one. Things like lunges, walking lunges, double rows, etc can be done with two.

Out of Curiousity, I went and looked up Mass card etiquette. This is typical of what I found: "For a Catholic family, consider getting the family a mass card in lieu of flowers. You don’t have to be Catholic to get a mass card. You make a donation to the Church, and in turn, the Church promises to say prayers or a mass on behalf of the soul of the deceased. The mass card says when the mass will take place, and you can give the card to the deceased family. For fellow Catholics, purchasing a mass card is a gesture of faith, compassion, and solidarity. For non-Catholics, sending a mass card shows your understanding, respect, and thoughtfulness." Now, knowing what Thardy thinks of masses offered by non-Catholics, I would not offend her by offering one for a member of her family, but it doesn't appear her attitude is typical.

Gotcha. I have only seen them at wakes and to tell you the truth, most people don't keep them forever but it is a nice gesture.

Thardy? Masses offered are "tacky"? My mother attended and offered masses by the dozens as an old school Catholic. As a non believer, I can still appreciate how someone could defer to my mom's beliefs in a way she would love. Besides, if mom was right about the Catholic Church, a little spiritual intersession into her afterlife couldn't hurt.

Curious, Bord, is there a reason you keep bringing up what you would or wouldn't do should a member of my family die?

It's basically asking a monk somewhere to say prayers instead of the mass card purchaser, lol.  It actually is, when "buying" a mass card for some poor family every time one passes a name church and apparently, until this very day, never quite knew the tradition behind the whole thing.  Talk about insincerity.  Too bad the Catholics are too polite too tell someone to say their own darn prayers!
