Some day you will be old enough to

I tell Georgie-Porgie he is a most beautiful cat,
that he takes my breath away with his regalness;
his being.
He turns his fluffy white head towards me
in the the early-morning glow and yawns,
"I know."

Well, I am old enough and have re-read some fairy tales. You look at them different this time around.

Anne, you are so right!
How about the popular books that seemed so important as young adults----then years later, we're clearing out stuff and see those words again and just shake our heads and roll our eyes?

PS; does anyone know what's causing those weird symbols here and there?

It's the effect of copying and pasting directly from a website. It's part of the format of the page and the particular script.

C.S. Lewis is a wise person, he had to be, after all, he wrote airy Tales, didn't he?

Yep, the Screwtape Letters are a scream.

Copy to note pad then copy from there to eliminate the problem.

I guess I never gave up on fairy tales, they just got more sophisticated in the Sci Fi genre.

Yes Don, but look how many things have become reality.

Thanks, Don!

Guess what? I got a new mouse today because the old one was probably 7 or 8 years old and I had to keep cleaning cat hair off the ball.
This new one is a laser-type and it's like driving a Porsche after that other one!!!!
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!

I know; I know----doesn't take much to get me on a roll.
----don't even ask what happened while I was buying the thing....

Combining the C.S. Lewis quotes: being old enough to read fairy tales to grandchildren--and then, great-grandchildren-- helps to make the game worthwhile.

KJ, all the quotes posted have something to offer, but you and Lilo are setting the bar awfully high for the rest of us by using your own insightful and poetic words of wisdom.

Please don't stop! They're wonderful!

mwheel, you must be connecting with my ADD brain---
God help you!
(But, thank you---I am not deserving ... Lilo sure is, though!!!!!)

You are SO right about the DGC and the DGGC and reading fairy tales!
How did we ever get to be so lucky?

I read Catcher in the Rye as a teenage and again this past year with my book group. This time around I looked at it completely different.
