Thanks, Christine -- I thought so too. Today's theme is Abraham Lincoln. Nobody is helping sprite with these icon themes these days so she is posting ideas she hopes will interest people who are mostly in the USA -- to little avail, it seems. Now I must do my bit to support her efforts. How about others sending ideas, or telling her to give it up if it is of no interest? (Which I think woulod be a shame, limiting the scope of Babble)

Christine

Were you wearing them?
1:57 am
lynxxx

were you wearing them?
1:57 am
dfmchfhf

I banged my head while searching for the lenses but apart from that I'm okay... (both lenses simultaneously and spontaneously popped out o.0)
1:58 am
Christine

Good grief ... poltergeists?
1:59 am
dfmchfhf

I think one triggered the other to go... both screws look completely shorn.
2:04 am
VolleymomDee

I had that happen with my last pair... and of course, they were my most expensive ones... glad you are okay
2:04 am
jillibus

what made them pop out? Did you sneeze or something?
2:06 am
VolleymomDee

expensive price... substandard quality here
2:06 am
jillibus

does anyone have acue foir the lone
C on the right side?
2:07 am
jillibus

a clue, that is (tired)
2:07 am
VolleymomDee

let me think a minute
2:08 am
VolleymomDee

ci + abbreviation for railroad + 1st person pronoun
2:08 am
joshuavorbis

jilli - plural clouds with structure like your handle
2:08 am

I was scratching my head before/while they popped.
2:09 am

hi josh...did you get them back together df?
2:10 am
jillibus

ty dee and josh -- nbt at last!
2:10 am
sammysmom

still need an re/7 ... the french one... clue please?
2:10 am
dfmchfhf

(luckily I had spare screws and screwdriver... not sure how long they'll last, though, since the old screws were stripped -- frame screwholes are probably stripped too)
2:10 am
VolleymomDee

I had to take mine back...
2:10 am
VolleymomDee

fingers crossed...
2:10 am
dfmchfhf

sammys -- add a vowel to the re6 before
2:11 am
dfmchfhf

I also appear to be bleeding -- scratched myself a bit harder than expected out of surprise. :o\
2:11 am
jillibus

I've been seeing ads on TV about cheap glasses -- anyone know why thjey're so cheap, including all bells and whistles like coatings etc?
2:11 am
lynxxx

dfm - find a girl with some nail varnish (pref clear) and put a drop on - helps keep the screws in place
2:11 am
sammysmom

never mind... just monkeyed it
2:12 am
jillibus

heads bleed easily, dfm
2:12 am
VolleymomDee

good question jili... mine were over $400
2:12 am
VolleymomDee

neosporin and bandaid...
2:13 am
dfmchfhf

the one major disadvantage of having claws instead of nails like normal people do. :o)
2:13 am
jillibus

about $800 here (2 pairs ofr the price of one, haha)
2:14 am
lynxxx

About 30 years ago I paid $500 for some Itaian glasses that I coveted....they looked stupid on me and I never wore them. Since then I have only ever paid at most $200. I have lots of pairs of glasses to choose from and am very happy.
2:14 am
VolleymomDee

:~)
2:14 am
jillibus

I just knew you were an extraterrestrial, dfm
2:14 am
dfmchfhf

I have no idea how much mine cost -- health insurance covers $800/yr on dentist+ophtalometrist (+glasses and other costs)...
2:15 am
VolleymomDee

well all I need to get going.... I hope you have a great day / eve...

Oh, that's only in about a thousand Shakespeare plays...doesn't matter that it isn't really English, does it?
2:36 am
Haz1558

If it's good enough for the Bard, it's good enough for Enable.
2:37 am

or7 comes from there, a body cavity?

Plus or6 - will you have fries with that or6?
2:38 am
Haz1558

Oh, and hello Douglas and everyone.
2:38 am

I don't feel too bad about not seeing ex6. But or7 is a perfectly prosaic word. Thanks, Haz

Good night, all...happy Babbling

BBL perhaps - this is n ot working for me - slight headache
2:55 am
Haz1558

I see jillibus has been complaining again about people not posting icons. Her complaints are counter-productive in my case. I hate being nagged at to do things which aren't obligatory and therefore will only change icons if I feel like it. I'll never be a saint like you, lynxxx.
2:56 am
Haz1558

Hope you feel better soon, lynxxx, it's actually a nicer grid than yesterday's.

3:08 am

I sprung him from the hospital on Thursday as they weren't doing anything for him beyond making him drink his yucky antibiotic.
3:15 am
rubyfoo

He's safe in bed and I'm bringing his meals, trying to fatten him up, and the visiting nurse comes every day to "walk" him and t=do leg exercises, so it's all very well organized and he is much happer
3:16 am
Kazzer99

that is really good but make sure that u look after yourslf as well
3:17 am

I'm OK, but thank you for your concern. I eat treats and all this extra walking (stairs!!!!) is making me stronger

this grid has some niced words but I'm still not at half. Yesterday was the first time since I started that I didn't have time to start
4:01 am
rubyfoo

the grid
4:02 am
rubyfoo

I'm surprised they don't run them on Fr TV since they run that old Diana Rigg series and others....
4:02 am
FMitch

I haven't had time to do a grid in 3 days and have only just started this one.
4:02 am

Morning Sally :)
4:05 am

sshhh! Slightly hung over.
4:05 am
rubyfoo

not our sally......
4:05 am
FMitch

oops sorry *whispers Morning*
4:06 am
Sally-catlover

That's better FM.
4:06 am
rubyfoo

I only get hung over from red wine or good whiskey. Clear spirits (any variety) seem to be OK. Speaking very softly
4:07 am
FMitch

and what was the cause of the over imbibement?
4:07 am
Sally-catlover

Mixing my drinks FM :-(
4:07 am
rubyfoo

ahah!
4:08 am
FMitch

Oh you should know better than that! That has got to hurt *giggle* Sorry.
4:09 am
Sally-catlover

No sympathy, any of you.
4:09 am
Sally-catlover

Had friends round to watch Toy Story 3 :-)
4:09 am
FMitch

LOL!
4:10 am
rubyfoo

that's supposed to be the best of the series. Was it?
4:10 am
Sally-catlover

It was great. Some wonderful lines in it. I think my favourite was when one toy said to the other, "were you classically trained?".
4:11 am
rubyfoo

I love that!
4:11 am
Sally-catlover

Some of it way beyond children. Also Ken and Barbie make an over the top and hysterical appearance. We all loved it.
4:12 am
FMitch

Sounds like a great night!
4:12 am
rubyfoo

and, pray tell, what drinks did you mix?
4:13 am
Sally-catlover

Shan't tell.
4:13 am
rubyfoo

hahah
4:13 am
FMitch

Oh don't ask ruby, Sally is looking a bit green as it is.
4:14 am
Sally-catlover

No, just a bit of a headache and a distinct non-desire to get up this morning.
4:14 am
FMitch

perhaps it was the creme de menthe that did it.
4:14 am
rubyfoo

poor sally. I just found a lovely mu5/20 for half
4:14 am
Sally-catlover

Is Spring springing your way FM? Snowdrops out round here, absolutely wonderful area for them.
4:15 am
Sally-catlover

mu 5/20? Looking.
4:15 am
rubyfoo

the wild primroses are up in the fields and all the bulbs have started -- inches up
4:15 am
FMitch

Snowdrops are out, crocus are showing colour and daffodills sprouting all over but not open yet.
4:15 am
rubyfoo

I think it's arabic for a military style of dressing....
4:16 am
rubyfoo

looked it up, it's a judge of Arab law...
4:16 am
Sally-catlover

ty ruby. Would never have thought of trying that word. Sigh...
4:16 am
FMitch

oh and my rosemary bush is in flower - it is a very confused plant.
4:16 am
rubyfoo

after years and years, my rosemary bushes keep dying
4:17 am
Sally-catlover

We use it for civilian style of dressing, not military.
4:17 am
Soodle

Gingerly popping head above parapet.......... Morning all
4:17 am

we are having a real drought here, no precipitation since Dec!
4:17 am

Hello Soodle - come on out hun :)
4:17 am

{{Boom!}}
4:18 am
Sally-catlover

Hi soodle. Has there been yet another issue in the chog this morning?
4:18 am
rubyfoo

wearing mu5/20 and shooting marshmallow bullets at soodle!
4:18 am
rubyfoo

{{l;oves soodle}}
4:18 am
Soodle

Not at all, Sally. I just lay low for a couple of days :-)
4:19 am
Soodle

Catching marshmallows in mouth! Yum!!
4:19 am
rubyfoo

you're safe here with us
4:19 am
Sally-catlover

Good thinking. Found the whole confrontation rather sad. I actually read back in the chog for once to see what it was all about.
4:20 am
FMitch

awe a pair of ring doves are cooing away o/s - they must think spring is on the way too.
4:20 am
Soodle

Bygones! Sally, I loved Toy Story 3.
4:20 am
rubyfoo

I think that kind of hostility has no place in here
4:20 am
Sally-catlover

A lot of our birds are pairing up, FM. And inspecting nest boxes and so on.
4:21 am
rubyfoo

I hope they're carrying my missing ring!
4:21 am
Sally-catlover

Film was great, wasn't it soodle.
4:21 am
rubyfoo

the green finches are prettying themselves up for spring; they go very drab in winter
4:22 am
Soodle

My fave sort of film, Sally. Lots for the kiddies, but plenty for the adults as well
4:23 am
FMitch

I really enjoy a film like that, that has the layers in it that appeal to a very wide audience.
4:23 am
Sally-catlover

I was told it was very sad though, and I didn't cry!
4:23 am
Sally-catlover

Did you like Ken and Barbie, soodle?
4:23 am
FMitch

you mean you don't remember using half a box of tissues ;)
4:23 am

4:24 am

I haven't seen it yet either ruby.
4:25 am
Sally-catlover

We belong to something called LoveFilm ruby, and get them from there. UK only, sorry, but FM could join.
4:25 am
Sally-catlover

Sorry, FM, I won't give away the plot :-)
4:25 am
FMitch

Don't worry - have seen the reviews and many clips on TV
4:26 am
rubyfoo

sometimes we get movies that haven't even opened yet, which is very weird. We got Lost Luggage a long time before it opened in the US
4:26 am
rubyfoo

BTW, it's a fine film with Isabella Rosselini
4:27 am
Sally-catlover

Will check that one out ruby.
4:27 am

4:28 am
rubyfoo

{{FM}} I'm leaving, too, attempting to cook a veal tongue as a treat for me! Never made one before
4:28 am
Soodle

Sorry - was on phone. Ken and Barbie were hilarious. But it was so sad at the end...., I got a little bit misty-eyed!
4:29 am
Sally-catlover

But surely it was a new beginning soodle.
4:29 am
rubyfoo

soodle and her magic phone!!!!
4:30 am
rubyfoo

4:30 am

Iknow, I know. But I cry at the Little House on the Prairie, and the Waltons!
4:30 am
Sally-catlover

No ruby, never heard of it.
4:30 am
rubyfoo

I cry whenever there is a wedding in a movie
4:30 am
rubyfoo

It is a lovely film with Katherine Heigl.
4:31 am

Um, never heard of her either :-(
4:31 am

7:02 am
sprite

lol yes! But way too young for any adult stuff, in our opinion... but then again, as parents you don's always know. So we are walking the fine line between telling them what we expect from them c.q warning them... and on the other hand trusting them when they say they don't intend any adult stuff yet.
7:02 am
FMitch

Good and good that you had the chat with the other Mother
7:03 am
sprite

you know the kind of talks... "don't go the whole way yet, save that for a bit later... but if you do anyway, do it the responsible way..."

8:15 am
lil*monkey

hi jmc!
8:16 am
hurshy

aw, thanks jmc!
8:16 am
uusue2

I think she's in a panic because he's not there to take care of her, and she's moving in with her son. but it's a long way away.
8:16 am
lil*monkey

OK so it's not because she does not love your dad anymore? It's more of a health thing?
8:16 am
uusue2

they've lived in NJ all their lives, her son lives in MI, and I'm in IL - nobody is close to anybody else
8:17 am
lil*monkey

sorry to hear that uusue.... that is a difficult situation {{{{{{{{{{ uusue}}}}}}}}}}}
8:17 am

8:18 am

Wow! What a small world. Where do you work? I'll pop in and say hello. We live about a mile outside of town.

years ago, my then closest friend's dad also passed a way right after Christmas. He was home in a neighboring state and didn't tell me until after the new year, when I asked how his holiday went. I was rather miffed, but understood he didn't want to deal with contacts at the time. You should feel some reassurance your dad has many friends who take the time to call, even when they aren't 'in the loop'.
1:01 pm

I don't think so, scrabs, the ci4/5 is wax in Fr

When I en5/10ed Babbleland today,was happy to see a small grid. I have not finished the en 6/18 grid yet, but I'm almost done so here is a story of clues. Hubby is so cr 6/24al of Babble. I can't even en 6/21 him to be a tr 5/10 of the game. He thinks I ex 5/20 myself too much when babbling, but not when cleaning.Wish I could hi 4/5 someone to clean my house. Hubby also fi4/8ly believes that I'm hooking up with people here. I'm so sick and ti4/4d of his paranoia. Well,I think he spends too much time on Farmville. I wish I could set his farm on fi4/7! I do not think that there are any fi 7/44 on Farmville he could call. Husband wants laptop If I don't give it to him, there will be a pr 5/14 to pay if his needs are un 5/14. He'll have a fi 6/30 attitude and may cause a ho 8/65 scene. I fr4/7 what he may do if I don't give it to him.He thinks I PMS sometimes. I swear to God I think he is pr 6/24strual sometimes. I don't want to buy a laptop,but I wish I could be a re 6/18 and re 4/4 one. Maybe I could be a th 5/18 and sneak one out of my school.Anyway, I am going to go look at a Chinese me 4/5 for take-out tonight. I feel like eating chicken and broccoli with ri4/5.I'll re7/28 Babbleland in th5/12 hrs before I re 6/18 for the nite

Yes, the prices have been climbing, though locally, rising faster where my mother and sister live than where i do, as prices got to point where i live that we stopped buying food.
6:31 pm

use the tofu and some frozen peas?
6:31 pm

their county's prices were lower, so theirs have been going up, and almost match ours now, at which point we'll rise in lockstep, i'm sure

8:53 pm
hootowl

8:53 pm
Mark Jones

What is the extension after that?
8:54 pm
hootowl

8:54 pm
Mary

recent
8:54 pm
Mary

sorry
8:55 pm
Mark Jones

I don't know that cd reference;
8:55 pm
hootowl

re4, add vowel for 5, add cons after vowel for 6 add vowel after original 4
8:56 pm
hootowl

dc's are the new way - re****s are the old one
8:56 pm
hootowl

I give up
8:57 pm
Mark Jones

I think I found it, but the other part of that word isn't in the puzzle. Sorry for the trouble!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
8:58 pm
hootowl

i do give up
8:58 pm
hootowl

what are we talking about now? I'm totally befuzzled.
8:58 pm
hootowl

8:59 pm
Mark Jones

Record is not is the puzzle!
9:00 pm
hootowl

hootowl

do all the easy stuff then do the hard ones.
9:06 pm
Mark Jones

I try, but it is harder than it looks.
9:08 pm
hootowl

well finding the re's would have been easier if you started w/ the 4 instead of the 7. same for a lot of the others
9:09 pm
Mark Jones

*sigh*
9:10 pm
hootowl

plus alot of words use that ic and er ending
9:10 pm
Mark Jones

Okay, i will look for those.
9:16 pm
Mark Jones

Can i have the 8 that isn't the he8?
9:18 pm
hootowl

it's ho8/65 and means something terrible - why don't you use the list?
9:19 pm
Mark Jones

Thanks hoot! My Lickety is not functioning today.
9:19 pm
suefrad625

9:19 pm
suefrad625

9:20 pm
hootowl

9:35 pm
lil*monkey

9:37 pm
hootowl

9:38 pm
lil*monkey

9:39 pm
wildcat17

9:39 pm
hootowl

a penny is also a **nt - ad that to ti4
9:40 pm
hootowl

9:40 pm
lil*monkey

9:40 pm
hootowl

yw
9:43 pm
lil*monkey

pr7 please?
9:45 pm
hootowl

if you have the pr6 change the sec vowel to a diferent one and add a vowel to the end
9:45 pm
lil*monkey

thanks hoot! got it
9:46 pm
hootowl

great - yw
9:46 pm
hootowl

one of those words that have no definition - even in a reg dictionary!
9:48 pm
lil*monkey

When I see a word in the grid like pr7, I have to again queston why POOT is not considered a word
9:50 pm
hootowl

enable is at least 40-50 yrs behind the rest of the world.Poot must be too new
9:50 pm
lil*monkey

conjugate the verb to POOT
9:51 pm
lil*monkey

haha
9:51 pm
hootowl

it's your word - you do it :D
9:52 pm
wildcat17

9:52 pm
hootowl

9:56 pm
hootowl

sorry caps were accidental
9:57 pm
hootowl

wildcat do you think there is a legitimate reason for NOT using the list and just asking people?
9:57 pm
wildcat17

lol I thought you were trying to make a point
9:57 pm
wildcat17

I guess some people like the challenge. like it invalidates the win if you list or something
9:57 pm
hootowl

not usally that way :D
9:58 pm
hootowl

but what's the challange if you are just interrupting other people?
9:58 pm
wildcat17

I'll admit to times when I did not want to list
9:58 pm
wildcat17

they don't see it as interrupting
9:59 pm
wildcat17

they see it as a means to achieving a goal
9:59 pm
hootowl

well I don't list till I've wrung out every word on my own - then I get the rest with the list
10:00 pm
wildcat17

especially with the many people who offer to clue
10:00 pm
hootowl

If I ask someone it's cause I'm either desperate or very busy. And usually for only one
10:01 pm
wildcat17

I usually don't ask either
10:01 pm
hootowl

yeah - I think that can be another ego trip
10:01 pm
wildcat17

it does take some work to figure it out on your own even with the list sometimes. maybe they don't want to work that hard for it
10:03 pm
hootowl

I think we are both pushing the envelope here. Everyone has there own feelings about this and it is probably easier to avoid the issue than talk about it
10:05 pm
hootowl

I really can't see the point of not doing as much on your own as possible
10:06 pm
wildcat17

neither can I but that's how it appears some people think
10:07 pm
hootowl

yeah - I guess so. So we will continue to do our own thing and chat when done
10:07 pm
wildcat17

pretty much
10:07 pm
hootowl

that works
10:08 pm
hootowl

I am now going to find a nosh. Been nice talking to you.
