Ed I think I explained to the best of my ability already. Thank you for popping in and saying hi. :)
Trapper, I'm sorry for any mocking I have been involved in. I did want to point out that the majority of what you are calling mocking was actually sarcastic humor on my part. I thought you were playing along with me as in our "fish blows" For surely you realize that I will not come to your way of thinking...so we might as well just make the best of it with a little humor, otherwise I will cry.
People who trust me and know me well enough actually enjoy that type of humor about me and I do too. It is not something that I want to repent from...only have better discernment when, and when not to use it with certain people. However, when someone does not trust me, or they have been criticized a lot in their lives, do I realize it doesn't seem to work well, even though they freely use it towards me.
I'm glad you two have each other to talk to. Best wishes. :)
