Here’s the haps:

I know I probably missed a few but these few colloquialisms in the title are meant to indicate that I have a widely varied audience, not just in the U.S. but in other countries, as well.

You. You are important to me and I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to come by and visit me and read my offerings. Time is extraordinarily valuable and I humbly accept that you are granting me some of it. I know some of my meager offerings are just that but yet I am often pleased with myself and know when I’ve done good work even if it doesn’t always seem to garner a lot of attention. And I am grateful to each and every one of you.


  1. The fictional rock band Drive Shaft from Lost got its signature song “You All Everybody” from the utterances of daytime talk show folk.

    “You all everybody!
    “You all everybody!
    Acting like it’s stupid people
    Wearing expensive clothes!”

    • That’s interesting. I like the line about stupid people wearing expensive clothes, there could be a lot of applications there.

  2. I’d be happy to have coffee with you, Herb, if we can keep my computer laptop in another room. You keep leaving coffee stains on the screen. And just for the record, in Kentucky, “y’all” is singular. “All y’all” is the plural
    See y’all for coffee sometime? 🤠

  3. This post presents a problem. Your you becomes my me, which as an m, isn’t really appropriate today. But if I turn it back to you, that becomes your me, which brings us right back to the same problem. I guess I’ll have to skip commenting today.

I like comments and try to respond to them all if I can:
