I only have the same emoji we all do I think...? The ones at the top here where I am writing this. If I try to use the ones on my iPhone or iPad they come as empty square and make me disappointed. Yours makes me gringrinningblushheart_eyes!

Uh-oh. Snow. Yes, let the fun begin! I do not have any yet Joel so you better not throw any snowballs at me yet! joy

Senile is a word that means losing your memory. Like it sometimes happens when people get really old and forgetful and sometimes don’t know where they are or who people are they should recognize. It is a very sad thing to happen to the mind. I was making a joke though and I am not senile. Not yet anyway! joyjoyjoy

Hey Lorie, i figured out why some of my smileys doesnt work as it meant to be working. I am using a different keypad (not physical one)powered by samsung on top of Android and it provides a wide range of emojis, but the forum isnt designed to support all of them but only the popular ones. There are also some emojis that are inbuilt in the forum that can be accessed from the toolbox just above the textbox we type in.i have not being using that. What ever emojis that doesnt appear in the standard emoji set provided by the forum appear as a question mark when posted.so i guess its not an Android Apple thing.Yes Lorie,you are very intelligent and brave.you noticed the minute smiley guy who wears shoes and walking sideways.you look into the details.me too do that v

Oh, you are sweet again Joel. Yes I noticed the little sideway guy with shoes right away a while ago when you first used him. You are the only one who has him so he makes me think of you. Here is the problem Joel...sometimes I am more brave than intelligent!! stuck_out_tongue_winking_eyejoyscream It seems there always things we do in life when we act and then later think it wasn’t a good idea, right? Like smoking. 
I hope you have a good night at work tonight and are not tempted by the smokers. I want you to stay strong and healthy and not pale! blush

I just had a good run. It was actually hot and kind of sweaty, not what you expect for November. Now I’m gonna make some lunch. Maybe some eggs! Oh...that reminds me, what did you call the egg thing you made one day a while ago? Was it where you put a hole in the middle of the bread and put the egg in the middle and fry it? That is one of my favorites! But what did you make and what did you call it? I want to try it.

No, you are just always kind and say nice things. Maybe I’m not that used to it so much. I do have a teenager you know!joy Actually my daughter is like you. Very sweet and says kind and uplifting things to people. She is a very positive person. That’s an interesting way to say that “always buttering me”. I like that phrase. 
Yes, it was a good run! But I think I wore too much as it was like 60° out and sunny and I should have worn short sleeves and shorts. It was a beautiful day. Right now I am a little stressed. Our Governor has declared a State of Emergency and for my city in particular. When I was downtown all of the businesses were boarding up their windows and the bookstore I wanted to go was closed for this. This isn’t politics talk one way or the other, but is the reality right now. It makes me really sad and want to be far away. I am not good at all of the division and expected violence. Hopefully it won’t happen and it is over preparing. But even thinking about it makes me anxious. And when someone who used to smoke dealt with their anxiety by smoking, it becomes harder not to feel the Nicodemon calling. Don’t worry Joel, I won’t give in. I know I won’t, but it is the having to deal with it unnecessarily that makes me sad and yes, mad too. Anyway, thank you for listening as I write out my stress. Thank you for the well wishes! kissing_heart

I would love to bring the teenager the teenager hiding in you.winkNo offense.thankyou so much Lorie to hear that my words are comforting for you.i want you to be comfortable and keep your stress and panic at bay.its a real painful aspect about the politics.the division and straight  one side vs the other.Todays politics is never capable to consider all the people into the system.so sad.but lets hopefully  hope for a better tomorrow.Wow its going to be election in America..cheer up Lorie,i bet your vote is gonna be counted.Last day,i watched a video about Mr.President Trump's  success secret and came to know that he keeps things simple.he never uses a word that is complicated.for example he uses Law for legislature and job for employment.And many more.His speech is so simple and energetic that a 5 year child could understand.seems interesting right?But i never agree to what quitalicious said.We actually dont need a non smoking political  leader to stick as non smokers,right?But it really matters when if there comes an imposing rule by a powerful leader  or the government that everyone in the planet should smoke off their life.Sorry,i am not talking politics here,my knowledge is a complete zero when it comes to politics.i will better stay silent Loriemask.i am so happy to hear that your daughter is much like me.i am very happy we make the world a positive and beautiful place.we will all join our hands together and will make the world a smoke free place?i will tell more about the food i make,stay tuned Lorie.

Haha! That’s funny. I think I understand what you mean, bring my daughter the teenager inside of me. 
You are absolutely correct Joel. When ours and other political systems were developed there was not 7.5 Billion people on the planet. So, for any system to expect to remain the same, with the same ideals and expectations a couple hundred years later and with literally millions more people in our nation alone, and all of the technological complexities and many other advancements that have come along, is just folly. It is pure ignorance and stagnation to have these expectations here or anywhere really. Yes, it is true what you said about the speech as well. To me, this again speaks to ignorance and it is profoundly sad that nearly half of the people here or anywhere can be affected and influenced by such simplicity. It does not speak well of the intellect of this nation. It shows we do not value education more than we do our own individual feelings on a few specific issues and because many are not very educated, it is this oversimplification of specific issues that is all they have to gauge what they feel is important. The big picture is not something humans in general are very good at taking a look at for sure. If we were, we would not have the environmental issues and pending doom environmentally that we have. Again we have found ourselves in a very deep and complex subject!joy It will be much better to hear about the food you are making for sure!stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye That subject does not trigger me to want to smoke like politics can. I hope one day to have that not be a trigger as well. So, in the meantime, yes! Let’s hold hands and be more like you and my daughter. It makes the world a much better place that way! blush
