Returns

There are prices that never get bought
And wishes that never get caught
But old gamblers bet
That all their regret
Turns to chips in the next table's pot.

RETURN, n. The profit accumulated when a staggering fool meets a regimentary public.

Many happy returns, Doug. :)
Whatever that means?
I've heard it said.

BTW my pics were from Copenhagen and Paris. I added a note saying that. Thanks,

Returns: On tv it's reruns. In toys it's boomerangs. With food it's a belch. With actions it's karma. Hey, where is that Karma anyway?

Which is to say, what goes around comes around.

lerrhywa: lecher on Route 66

RETURN, n. a reoccurring occurrence -- like birthdays, as in:
Happy Birthday Thom.

(Since Thom didn't want anybody to know I am doing my best to be discreet. I have only posted it on my blog, in your comments, on Facebook and on Twitter.)

Doug said...

Jim, thanks for the explanation. Many happy returns to you, too.

TLP, she was here on "Love" day.

It is to say that, Karen, yes.

Quilly, I hope Thom appreciates it more than I would.

Actonbell, that wasn't an update. Brand new material, ironically.

Excellent, Mule.

Right, Cooper. Repeat offenders.

Nicole, I can sure see how that might have come to your mind.

(silly me!)

quilly said...

Doug -- happily, he didn't. Otherwise what would have been the point? ;)

Yupp, especially today.
I did NOT miss the Friday prayer sermon (hence: Hate speech)
And when you think he's finished, he starts all over *deep breath*
