Family

FAMILY, n. A body of individuals living in one household, consisting of male, female, young, servants, dog, cat, dicky-bird, cockroaches, bedbugs and fleas- the "unit" of modern civilized society.

2009 Update: A union consecrated by the state for heaven's tolerance. Sacramental lambs, flocked.

Family has been the theme for me these last few weeks.

Family and friends (bloggers too) are welcome at mi casa (when I get back home).

Where would we be if we weren't told what what to think by someone else?

Family, when it is good, it is very, very good, but when it is bad, it is horrid.

Ariel - funny and true.

Family - relatives and others whom you are closely knitted to. As my Gramillo, once told me, "Family is more important than anything."

Doug said...

Mo'a, you celebrate it well.

That sounds tempting, Jim. How's Mrs. Jim's cooking?

Right there, Nessa. Now, stay.

For many an unfinished project, Amoeba.

Amen, blogmama.

Yup, that happens too, K.

Ariel, a high alcohol content makes it both.

Or, at some stages, Quilly, are comfortable feeling ok about.

Bear, pod is one of my favorite clan words.

Especially when it's spilled, Icy.

Can't argue with that, JD. She's family, after all.

Ariel - isn't that the girl with the curl in the middle of her forehead?

FAMILY: The unkindness with which I sometimes hang around.

Ariel the Thief said...

Yep. :)

Or at times consecrated by those other states, like Connecticut and Iowa.
