Happy Friday! Are we ready for a weekend? Settle into the Q Treehouse and let’s catch up. Let’s see what our buddies are doing down the street and across the world. Yes, it is Friday the 13th, but bad karma can’t touch us. In fact, this Friday afternoon would be a lovely time for a big info drop from the OIG, especially since it’s the 13th.
We welcome you to the Q Tree, WQTH! Here, you can say what you want, comment on what other people said, and so on. Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it. Please, keep it SOMEWHAT civil because most of the people here are our friends. They tried to FORCE fake Orwellian civility on us. In response, we CHOOSE true civility to defend our precious FREEDOM from THEM.
Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here in the January 1st open thread. Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven.
You may have noticed the sun has shifted and the days are getting shorter. Time to get out of our Treehouse for a while and still enjoy the outdoors while we prepare for winter. When we were little, we could watch a caterpillar for hours…….. and in the grand scheme of life, probably more important than our latest text message. Yet, it’s mid-September and time to take that last dip in the lake…….
…… before we stock the pantry, recaulk the exterior doors, and clean gutters. Don’t forget to clean out the birdhouses and bird baths for winter. Might be nice to make a little treehouse, a smaller version of our own, for our fine feathered friends.
Never let the music die, and look for the music in the most unexpected places.
As we discuss topics of the day, never forget Wheatie’s Rules.
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
Our rules began with the civility of the Old Treehouse, later to become the Wolverinian Empire, and one might say that we have RESTORED THE OLD REPUBLIC – the early high-interaction model of the Treehouse – except of course that Q discussion is not only allowed but encouraged, and speech is considerably freer in other ways. Please feel free to argue and disagree with the board owner, as nicely as possible.
SPEAK THE FIVE WORDS BOLDLY TO OUR PRESIDENT, “I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!“
When you’re finished with chores and taken a walk in the forest, come on back to the Q Treehouse. We’ll still be here.
