"it's like trying to organize AWADers"

The term "Ayleur" proves itself apt yet again.

"it's like getting Ayleurs to agree"

We can't even agree that the term ayleur is an abomination and shouldn't be allowed.

AWADers should be obscene but not herded.

An older expression that I haven't heard for years is "It's raining pitchforks." I was reminded of this expression recently while reading a postcard which was written in the late 1800's which mentioned the weather as "raining pitchforks and hammer handles." "Pitchforks", OK, but "hammer handles"?! You KNOW that had to be a drencher!!

Too bad. If more of us agreed to use that title I would write a soap opera for us. Called Ayleur Children.

Why, cuddle right up to him, of course!
