ray and susie...

our dear friend ray passed away this week.

from my post last fall i received many lovely notes from you and i want to thank you
for your amazing kindness...

he is surely in heaven with his darling wife susie... but so difficult to let them go...
we loved them both dearly... some of the kindest people we will ever know...
we grew up across the street from them and played in their driveway.. they watched us
grow up and we visited them on many trips home over these 40 years.

we will miss you ray and susie...
you will live on in our hearts forever.

xoxo

I'm so sorry Pam, my heart goes out to you and your family. What special people...at least they are together now...forever, and you *will* see them again someday, just remember that!
Mr. 24 and I are a Ray and Susie to two children that live across the street from us...we've known them since they were very little...they became our surrogate kids and hang out here all the time, this has me thinking of 40 years from now.
Hugs and prayers of comfort for you dear friend...

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
