Thanks for caring but,

The rumors of my death have been greatly exagerated.

I was up chasing fish for a few days and then just hanging out watching the goings on. That and working on a new job I was appointed to when I was gone.

Wasn't it Plato that sought the perfect state? Christ sought the perfect state of mind. Oneness with the almighty. Amen.

Slow! Fished with some pretty good fly-fishermen and all we managed to find were some dollies. Still, the sun on your face, the smells of spring in the air and the river traffic almost non-existent -- you do have to love it.

Good call, and you got it down in two short sentences. (I'd have put a simi-colon after the word 'mind.' Sorry, it's my Canadian Education.)

Cool Fred is grammatically correct

..as oneness with the Almighty and the perfect state of mind would be one and the same; a redundancy. Correctly presented; properly placed in dialogue; allowed as rhetorical effect through the use of the semi-colon.

And I thought it was Tim Leary who sought the perfect state of mind!

That's what I get for being brought up in a liberal church.

OC,

Be careful of which mushrooms you put in your spaghetti sauce or on your salad or you too will find yourself searching for the perfect chemically induced state of mind. Now where did I put those nacho chips?

If your mom was an English teacher, Fred,

she would fry and broil you over your desired use of a semi-colon. I almost started on the semi-colon rant that I used in my classes. Be thankful prudence saved the day.

Geez, I need to go fishing....

Talking Kieth has colon (semi) issues?

The semi- colon has it's place, but unless you're teaching high school english to kids that can't put five words together; can't pen thier thoughts; can't cognitate in the written word the semi-colon should be no more maligned than any other point of punctuation

My first post in this thread was actually in response to the first reply to Sinktips "Thanks for caring" post and I now find that first reply missing from the thread, making my posting habits look as though I attended Timothy Leary Unitarian with OC. Maybe the puctuation police censored it

It was the result of the Punctuation Police, undoubtedly...

doing their job to prevent flame wars.

I love semi-colons and use them where appropriate; that being said, I had it worse than teaching high-schoolers: they gave me the football and baseball guys who flunked out of 101 the first time.

The good news is that I also got the girls' basketball team! I still have fantasies...

And I will drop that thread right there.

Keith

Fred,

Sounds like we need to be careful about the things we are cogitating about since they thunder and lightening showed up unexpectedly. Of course, these cogitations are the direct result of Keith's post.
