Come on in and have a cuppa joe. You’ll find the Tuesday Chatter Cafe, a cozy place to meet for coffee and a weekly chat. Have a seat and enjoy the buzz, and be kind to one another because what happens here doesn’t stay here and the gossips like to stare.

Do you remember the “Anything Goes Fashion” and Individual Expression decade? Flares or bell-bottoms, tunics, pants sets and leisure suits were the trends along with exotic prints, polyester, satin, corduroy, and velvet fabrics. Well, if you think it was the 1970s, you’re correct.

Word of the week–predilection–(noun)-synonyms-liking, fondness, preference, taste, penchant, weakness, appetite, fancy, inclination
Words that rhyme or nearly rhyme-diction, faction, friction, inception, deception, fruition, situation, reputation, misconception, dereliction, inclination

Can muddy one’s interpretation
Leading to misbeliefs and false impressions
Wearing a bowtie to dinner doesn’t mean you’re a winner

But ask yourself first and survey your list of druthers
Address your gut feeling before you enlist opinions of others
Gadzooks, does our decision making ever end?
