    The Andy Griffith Show

    We've been binge watching a couple of AGS episodes a night. We laughed and laughed and I was surprised how many I remembered! Sadly, we're now in the 6th season and the funny seemed to disappear just as the color appeared. Warren is so not funny and even Goober isn't a great replacement for Gomer. I'm guessing Howard Sprague is soon to arrive. The biggest change of all is the lack of Barney. Even Ange doesn't seem happy without him, just cranky all the time. Opie can't help growing older and he remains pretty darn cute.

    S02.E06: The Bad Mother

    I felt that Celeste's attorney should have questioned ML as to why she hired a PD to spy on Celeste in the first place. Celeste can't share custody with this monster, who questions the children about every little thing. No way would ML be satisfied with weekend custody. She also is clearly planning to go after Jane next. in order to add Ziggy to her collection of boys to ruin. The custody hearing has been very odd from the start. I think that was definitely another actor portraying Ziggy. I'm not exactly hate watching. I just want this to be over. Despite all of the problematic writing, there is a lot that I like about this show. I'm looking forward to the finale and hope that we get some answers!

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I agree that Jill and Derdick seem resentful of Izzy, but they seem warmer towards Sam. I have no idea why that would be. Izzy seems to have become quite needy and that can be annoying, but he seems kindly disposed towards Sam and other children. I wish they could nurture his good qualities and then maybe the neediness would go away. He seems like a bright, little boy. Whenever I watch a Dullard video, I feel sad for him. 😢 I do think Cathy genuinely cares for him and I hope he feels the unconditional love from her. Even if she is nutty!

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    @Christina87, I don't know you, so I hope I'm not suggesting something to which you would be opposed, but would you consider a private, Christian school? They are often looking for teachers. The pay would not measure up to public schools, but you would gain great experience. My experience is mostly with Lutheran schools (I'm not a teacher, but my kids and grandkids attended), where I know music teachers are greatly appreciated.

    S02.E04: She Knows

    I've been thinking about this puzzling and unsatisfying (to me) season and here is one more thing that has been bothering me. I think we are supposed to take Madelyn at her word that she made a mistake and that she loves Ed and will be faithful going forward. But she's always fantasizing about smarmy Joseph. I don't think she even likes that guy, so why is she thinking about him all the time., when supposedly her biggest fear is losing her marriage to the man she "loves"? If Ed really is just a meal ticket to her, then why should we care about Madelyn?
  7. I have to go with Anna on that one. I'd ban someone who asked me a question that was none of their business. But I also don't have a public style insta - only friends comment on mine and they all say nice things.

    I think Jill would never dream of a child (other than firstborn until the next one comes along) having their own room. Maybe the boys like being together, but they still should be in a larger room. A shed, as someone suggested above, would be an excellent idea, but maybe they don't care about parking in the garage. It does look as if they play outside, lots of outdoor toys and even a firepit. I'm trying to be nice here. I still think she should have straightened up before filming and she should put some color in those rooms, not just framed certificates and sayings and dried flowers. As for the furniture, I think they purchased the sofa and loveseat for this house (hopefully not incurring debt - JBoob would not approve of that). I did notice that she said the harp is in the office so that the kids stay away from it. It's actually nice that she still keeps up with her music. She does appear happy.
  9. Not Jill R, but she scolded young women and called them sluts for "immodest" dress, just like Jill R! Christian Schoolteacher Who Scolded Girls to be Modest Was Molesting Male Students

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I have to agree with the consensus here. Jill's house is boring and cramped. Her video is so poorly presented. She should have redone it until she got it right. Things I was shocked/saddened by: When she opened the laundry room door - I would never videotape a mess like that, much less put it on youtube! When Israel wanted to ride on her feet too. He's so needy, it breaks my heart! Israel's ridiculously small bed in the boys' ridiculously small room. Derdick's "office" - bet he's always in there, whenever he's home. The lack of toys and play area for those poor, bored children. If it were me, I'd prefer three bedrooms that are larger in size and a dining room. A basement would be a godsend. I'd put in a non-privacy (friendly enough to chat over with the neighbors) fence and get a dog and a swingset. And plant a garden And let the boys play with some neighborhood kids

    S02.E05: Kill Me

    I could totally see that. Maybe she'll get her comeuppance by a surprise witness testifying that she's unfit to have custody of the twins - because she killed her other son!

    S02.E05: Kill Me

    Perry's push down the stairs happened at a well attended public event, following a ruckus where he was kicking the crap out of his wife. All of the principals are the "beautiful people" who everyone seemed to be watching constantly. In fact, there were women at Trivia Night who were fawning over Perry. I do not understand how there were no witnesses to the beating Celeste was getting or the push. Instead we go down the road of an obsessed for no reason detective and apparently an undercover cop or informant going to great lengths. Then there's Mary Louise who shows up everywhere and always seems to win in every situation. I am not really enjoying this season. I've gone this far, so I'll see it through, but at this point, I want it to be over like a needed dental appointment.

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    Same here, Sugarplum. I have two sisters who had full term stillbirths and even the two of them grieved differently. Thankfully, they were permitted to hold their babies, but no one was taking such pictures in those days. I know they would treasure such photos. I think it was brave of Joy and Austin to share their grief. Stillbirth is not often talked about, but it happens all too often. Miscarriages are far more common, but also not talked about much. When my younger sister lost her baby, I remember talking about it at my daughter's pre-school (with the moms, not the kids). They were all so kind, except my daughter's teacher who said nothing. Later she confided in me that her first child was born with a heart defect and died shortly after. Hearing about my sister brought back painful memories and she couldn't talk about it until we were alone. It is a loss that is borne for life and yes, it does change you. Sugarplum, I loved your kind and understanding post. Thank you for all that you have done for grieving parents. ❤️
