Rainbow, that's lovely! They are such fun, aren't they. They are cartoonish, but somehow they capture the essence of each guy ! Love my Wembley Freddie! He stands next to my Montreux statues.

Will have to watch till later for that Lottery ticket now it's just after midnight here in England. I always get Saturdays lottery ticket on a Tuesday, too. Maybe I'll get a EuroMillions ticket, too!

Thank you for your congratulations! I'm so thrilled. Yes , I always loved Freddie's Betty Boop shirt and with front and back it's like BOGOF (Buy One Get One Free) I'm so lucky!

Unbelievable. I get back on to see messages from one of sweet and tender hooligan/ Freddie and Jim forever's friends saying I bullied her off of social media. Fuck right off with that. Nobody told her to leave. Just like nobody told her to post smut or lie about who she is. As someone else has pointed out when you post something on a public forum you have to expect people to have an opinion. My opinion is that calling Mr Mercury a useless bottom, discussing how Jim had sex with him and how he had sex with other men in detail and suggesting the men that worked for him were miserable because Mr Mercury was such a "bitch" is distasteful, rude and a sign of being in desperate need of a life. So to those friends of hers before you hop back on your Instagram pages and act like your friend was pushed off a ledge, try to wrap your mind around the facts. I knew these men. These were good lads who had an emotionally draining job and 2 aren't here to defend themselves. I don't find her humour remotely funny. I don't her witty or deep. When you discuss my friend's sexual life in detail and joke about his husband being an arse, you and I have a problem. Your jokes are seen by people who cared for them. Stop and think before you post something. And if you decide to post anyway on a public website don't get your knickers worked up when someone finds your distasteful post distasteful.

There's a joke and then there's being digusting. Your friend's post and discussions did not fall under the joking category for me. And it looks like many others felt the same. I'm afraid I don't find fisting and "gay screaming" jokes to be gut busting.

That's all I'm going to say about this now. I have taken up enough of Mr Thor and Mr Lee's space here. I thank all of you who see and understand my views on this. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Rainbow, I'm glad you finally got those dolls! Every now and then Zullily runs a sale on Funko Pop figures, so I keep watching for Freddie. So far no luck. I know I can get one on Amazon, but I figure if it shows up on Zullily it was meant to be.

FreddieDarling, congrats on your win! You must have quite the Freddie collection by now!

Shaun, I totally understand your anger. The stupidity and drama of social media have made me quit Facebook and Twitter on more than one occasion. I choose to avoid people who exude negative energy. I think that the universe will take care of them in the end. Don't allow fools to sully your memories of the wonderful friends you had (and have). You are loved here and we appreciate your passion.

There is a very fine line between ‘hobby’ and ‘mental illness.’

... by the way, I am bipolar ... and it was not caused by Queen. LOL

Doughnut, thanks for the great link to the interview with photographer Richard Young. I didn't realize that he had taken so many of my favorite pictures of Freddie. There were more than a few pictures that I hadn't seen before and that's always a treat. Another reason I am looking forward to Thor and Lee's book!

Saint Jiub, I'm not sure the line is all that fine. I have relatives who collect salt and pepper shakers. Hundreds of them. Taking up every horizontal space in every room of their home. At what point does this enter the realm of being "hoarders"? Slippery slope territory.

I think we should set up a "To Fund Me" page to get Thor a snorkel and wetsuit. And an extra bucket. Sending thoughts and prayers your way, kind sir.

Saint Jiub, thanks for the laughs you provided with your Dave Berry link. I've always enjoyed his humor. This one hit home for me:

2" If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be ‘meetings."

I was required by contract to attend so many deadly dull meetings over the course of my career that I thought I might perish of boredom. Then I found a quote that said it all. I printed it out on an index card and quietly sent it around the room at one of my last inservice meetings. I knew exactly where it was by the snorts and giggles. Here it is:

"When I die, I hope it is at a faculty meeting or teacher inservice because the transition from life to death would be so subtle."

Yes, I'm childish, and yes, I was a thorn in my principal's side. But if you can't laugh, then what????

Hi all,
Since 5 new pages have come about since I last contacted you, I am going in oldest to newest order...I may not finish all today.
First of all, thanks for all the comments about my flooding fiasco. The plumber that I am going through HAS to be the one who is "recommended" by the Association. AND...I could not make an appointment until tomorrow at 11 am. The cynic in me hears about the delay in service and pictures them meeting with the association before 11AM to figure out a way, that despite the outcome, is made to look like my fault. No way, right? people are so honest...always.

So the water overflow happens intermittently and that makes me believe it is when one or two of the units directly above me use THEIR water. I have not used the faucets since before I left for Palm Springs. Well, we will see.

Mr. Shaun,
By ALL means, stay away from that other site, but PLEASE stay with us. I don't know why Lee's and my names are being stirred up but I don't like it. We never knew this woman who, thanks to you, I just found out is our best friend. What crap!
Shaun, make me happy with one simple sentence. Tell me, "I will stay on with Mr. Thor's and Mr. Lee's thread on QueenZone and participate when and if I can or feel like it."

If you don't say that, I will be extremely sad!

Saint Jiub,
I always love to read your posts. I was going to say a similar "flushing" story as you did, but I could not figure out a way to not make it GROSS. Your line was BRILLIANT! Thanks for your ever-present wit !
