Morning all. Back to work for me after two weeks off. The shock and horror of it all and to top it off it's dark at this time of the morning

Good morning everyone. Late night with hockey and had to sleep in a bit this morning. Sorry I missed breakfest.

Sometimes you have to wonder if the media has no impact.

I grew up pre-Pixar. I can recall major depressive episodes beginning around age 8. Began having serious suicidal thoughts at 14, minor cutting around 15, attempting suicide at 17. Chose to go into therapy for the first time two years ago when I was 27.

I recall a school report from elementary school (around 11) noted that I seemed listless and lethargic. They did have me see a school pyschologist to see if they could diagnose something (I remember looking at ink blots) but apparently, I was fine.

I think many adults have a hard time relating to what an 8 year old could be depressed about, and when I was that age, I didn't understand that the way I felt was not normal--so how could I tell someone? Childhood depression just gets missed a lot.

Touchy subject. Off my soapbox now.

Reality sets in. That world only lives in memories. Nasty stuff didn't seem to exist in the fifties because it wasn't discussed out loud. Dick van Dyke was so drunk at the time he barely remembers making Mary Poppins.
All the warm fuzzies in the world won't prepare your child for what they'll deal with at school.
Still, the Sound of Music remains one of the Box Office champs worldwide with good reason. People need warm fuzzies.
Now for more coffee.
C'mon, that stuff was still happening in the 70's man. I know, I was there! We had a milk chute and played till mom stuck her head out the door and yelled "Supper!" It was a new housing development though so the boulevard trees were kinda small. I drove by my old house a couple months ago and the trees are all big and overhanging now though.

Good morning all. Lovely morning here. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I too had a late night playing hockey. All I can say is the world is moving a little slow. Scored on my first shot of the year though.

Morning all. Picked up a few leaves off the grass in the hopes it will dry enough to cut later today.
This a busy time of year for us at the CCS. Yesterday was the start of breast cancer month and we have a number activities scheduled for the month. Ah well, it keeps me off the streets.

Ah... The Club Protocol

Very good morning greetings to all.

Just realized from reading the last few pages of posts in the club that a communications protocol may exist. Let's see if I have it right:

[1] Greetings to all when you join the club each day (no breakfast here this morning, may I share yours?)

[2] Say "ta" when signing off for the day, and

[3] Respect the line of conversation by not breaking in with a non-related comment or question (with apologies to Margaret during her TV challenges).

Oh, some mornings I just wander in, complaining about whatever, and then remember to be polite and pay attention to the conversation and maybe even say good morning.

Umm... morning all.
