I don't usually use the "F".
Perfect statement to include it in though
My icon for years has been Ho Ho Tai. Ho Tai was a chubby Buddhist monk who roamed the countryside, giving out free advice (probably unwelcome) and treats for everybody (always welcome). I felt some resemblance to him and also saw in him characteristics I wanted to emulate. I probably laughed more than Ho Tai so I called myself Ho Ho Tai.
Now, I tell my old stories. I babble on in fragmented memories. I don't really have a coherent story, or life-thread, to pass on. Actually, at age 79, I'm still learning. Like the owl on my bookshelf, I have been made ragged by the years. I am weary with the weight of all the dead ends I have pursued. Like the owl, I think, and I know. I think I know everything but I know that I don't. I think I have read, seen, heard, experienced everything, but I know that I haven't.
I call my owl Hoo_Hoo_Tai. I don't think I am ready to substitute his image for my Ho Ho Tai icon, but may. Hoo_Hoo_Tai is definitely a meme. I see myself in him and, whether I wish to follow in his foot steps, Time has a way of seeing to it that I do.
But, in our old age, we have both learned this:
"The greatest thing you ever learn
Is to Love, and be loved in return"
So - who is Hoo?
Please follow Mrs Ho Ho's example. She listens to me babbling away, smiles, pays no attention, but tells me she loves me anyway.
There are so many good ones but this is what works for me when I deal with people
Wish I could find the shirt in my size!!

Totally me!! Can't rep you right now but tried.
lol! It's the thought that counts
