We Have New Readers!

And there is a bunch of them!

Meet Garth and Ildi Fout. They have a family of eight. Eight!
And Garth says "so far".

SO FAR !?!?!

One more and you have a baseball team!
Two more and you have a basketball GAME, not team!

Anyway, they are a nice, BIG family.
(Eight people! Imagine needing the bathroom in the morning!)
And Garth thinks we're funny! My favorite kind of guy!
(I think he's just here for the freebies. Hey, he's got eight mouths to feed!)

So check out his site, it's a great family site with a warm and fuzzy feel to it.
(Imagine the grocery shopping! He probably needs a one ton truck and a loading dock full of teamsters!).

It's also very well done. They are a charming and happy family. They just radiate pleasantness. A stop there will definitely bring a happy smile to your face.
(I wonder how many cars it takes to deliver pizza to his house?)

I personally guarantee a smile, or double your money back!

Hey Garth, there is an old TV show you can rent on DVD.
It's called "Eight Is Enough"!

Almost everyone we talk with asks me if they are all mine. Sometimes I say I just rent them to go to the store to create questions!

Hello again, Garth.

It is so good of you to come back! Thank you for that.

Rental children, what a unique idea. It would create a valid excuse for grownups to attend amusement parks, fairs, festivals, and the like, and permit them to slip back into the joyful existence which is childhood. Anyone could become a ‘Kid for a Day’. The children probably wouldn’t mind, and the parents would attain a ‘day off’ for quality time together alone.

Would I have to feed them?

I am, of course, joking (about feeding them, not the whole idea).

I imagine the screening process for potential ‘Rental Parents’ would be the deal breaker. Sadly, this world has become a dangerous place where compassion and concern for your fellow human beings are considered to be extinct. This bewilders me. How could that dramatic change have happened in such a short time? I find it to be inconceivable.

But I can still dream…

Anyway, you’ve received several comments at the other site. People seem to agree with my assessment of you (they like you). The other site is the same as this one, but newer and shinier. Navigation and commenting are easier, and more information is presented concerning which post is currently the most popular, who recently commented on which post, and which links are the most popular at the time. It also has no advertising, allowing it to be billed as an ‘uncensored site’. However, there are no shocking or offensive items posted there. It is a mirror image of this site. I wish to offend no one. I try to limit the profanity while striving to present an image which is knowledgeable, current, and mainstream. I tolerate no pornography however, as I consider it offensive and embarrassing. I’ve never perceived the relationship between a man and a woman as a spectator sport. I cannot understand the appeal of spectating instead of participating. The appeal of that industry is lost on me. It is not my place to judge, but it is equally not my obligation to accept anything simply because some others may. I will decide what I do and do not care for, no one else will tell me.

And finally, I have a question concerning your wife. She has an uncommon name, I’m sure you are aware of that. When I was a young boy, my parents, who immigrated from Hungary, had a very good friendship with another great couple who immigrated with them. These two fine people had two children. Their son was tragically killed in an auto accident at a young age. They also had a daughter, who I grew up with. We were very good friends, like a brother and sister. It was not just me, but my two brothers and my sister as well. We all played together, went swimming together, spent each and every holiday together with, and so on. As we grew up, making new friends in High School, then going off to college, we lost track of each other. I have not seen or heard from this great girl for about thirty-five years. I have no idea whatever happened to her, and I‘m sure she has no inkling of where I went.

I mention this because her name was Ildiko. Her brother was Mike Jr., and her parents were Mike and Theresa S. from Sharon, PA. Mike was a Taylor in Sharon. Also, in your picture, she looks familiar to me. Of course, thirty-five years changes people. I am wondering if this might be her. I believe this is enough information to allow you to discover if she is my old friend. I realize how extremely thin this possibility is, but she has a rare name.

Again, thanks for coming back to this site. It amazes me when someone reads published media, which I was involved with, and wants to return!

Yes, the same with my parents. We don't have many Ildi's here, But I suppose there are quite a few over in the homeland. My real name is the same way, it's Lajos.

Now that is clearly Hungarian! And it would be easy for your wife to guess my last name. It is the most common name in Hungary, like Smith or Jones would be over here.
