Wendy, I too dislike rudeness. I try not to expect too much from the people who visit my puzzles. We all have our lives to live outside Jigidi and I respect that folk don't have to visit every puzzle I post. After all, they are somewhat infrequent. I am just grateful for the warmth and friendship they show when they do visit. I only aim to bring a smile and lighten people's lives with my frippery. I regret your disappointment that I may not be offering you more than I am able and that you see that as a reason to cut me off. So be it. I really don't understand why you have felt it necessary to put me through this emotional turmoil. I have worried that someone else has been making unpleasant remarks in my name but I don't see how this is possible . This will be my absolutely final discussion on the matter. Please don't reply to this.
Well, it's a sad day Wendy. I notice you have removed all your older comments and I wonder why you have considered that to be necessary. This is all too, too depressing.
Well, Wendy. Thanks for nothing. You haven't told me what I've said or done. And b*****r me I have no idea how you imagine I've hurt you again. By being naive? You just don't want me to visit your site any more. If that's what you want then, I'm sorry. Bye.
Well. Do you know what Wendy? I've tried and tried to see where I have offended you or bitched about you behind your back. Dammit, I have NEVER done that. The only thing I have done is solved your puzzles ( too slow for the board ) a couple of times this last week and not left a comment. Is that a hanging offence? Personally I don't think so. I am too busy with gardening, DIY, living with a wisdom tooth infection. Do you know what? I have actually just solved some "latest posted " puzzles for a quick fix so that I dont get involved in too many conversations as I just don't have the time. So I have no idea what you are talking about. It saddens me deeply that you think I am not "who you think I am". We have been through this before and I really, really don't know why you suspect me of duplicity. My dearest friend on Jigidi is Jiggybelle, who has visited me and with whom I have a very close friendship. My spare time is taken up with having long chats with her and we pointedly don't discuss Jigidi. For your information, and I really don't know why I am having to make excuses for myself, I don't email anybody else, other than on their birthdays. Yes, I have Kirsten and Gail's details but we don't email regularly. Only when they are going through rough times. I enjoy their repartee on Jigidi. We have a laugh. As I have enjoyed on your site. Wendy, I am tired of making excuses for myself when none are necessary. You are driving me away from your puzzles and that is very sad. You have a great talent and I have loved solving your wonderful creations. However, I am depressed by how I have to keep making apologies for imagined slights. Enough, Wendy. If you think I am a person who needs to snidely or secretly slag off people on our friendly site then, that's it. I can't return to your puzzles. You are breaking my heart, but that's it . If you don't trust me then you have hurt me and I really don't need this emotional grief.
What has happened now Wendy?
Hi Wendy! I haven't replied before now because we are not long home and I have only briefly popped into Jigidi since then. Too much to catch up with! Washing, ironing, ( yuk! ) house, garden, the gym ( work to be done there after a week of self indulgence! ), friends to catch up with.....you know how it is! Anyway, I didn't think that was what you meant. My dear Wendy, you do overthink things sometimes and worry too much. I'm happy that we can correspond this way...so long as I remember to hit the "latest comment" button! LOL! I confess I don't check my puzzles every time I come on line but I will look in more often. The vacation was wonderful! Guadeloupe is a very beautiful island. I shall post a few photos of the Bruin Boys and the scenery in a day or two. I have house guests due so won't be on too much. However, I'm itching to have a go at one of your puzzles and now is the time! Catch you at yours! :-))))
Wendy, just to clarify a few things for you. You guessed wrong. In actual fact Gail has never mentioned you to me. True. It's not as if we are in constant contact other than having a laugh on puzzles ( as I do with you ) and occasionally getting an update on her health. I suspect when I was first aware of the tensions between you and and I made it clear to you, Gail and Kirsten that they realised that I did not want to take sides. If you remember, I stated that quite clearly to you. I have only ever wanted to enjoy each of your puzzles and throw in the occasional light hearted remark. I do not spend ages reading back on everybody's discussions. Or counting smiles. If I put an extra one to Gail it was because it made me laugh, not for some secret motive. I had not seen that conversation and, to be frank, I have only briefly skimmed through it. I find the whole situation sad and depressing. I will not be drawn into making judgements on things I prefer not to be involved in. I hope that you can understand that and not think me lily livered for not taking up a stance on either side of the fence. I was quite happy sitting on top of it , a bear in either arm.That is where I shall continue to perch, enjoying the good things of Jigidi and hopefully being welcomed when I call in on any of my favourites. And now I, BB and both bears are off to have some much needed down time in the sun.
Wendy I know you are not stupid. Far from it. I however must be incredibly dense as "what are you talking about " is exactly what I thought upon reading this. I went back to the puzzle to see what had been said. My take on it was, and is, that Gail meant that I am still a Miss Snootypants. I didn't read anything else into it. I have said to you before that I enjoy both your and Gail's puzzles and the enjoyable banter that goes with them. I have endeavoured to remain impartial, never making snide or partisan comments and I believe, if you look back on them that that is what you will find. I have always appreciated the effort and care you put into the Growly puzzles and thank you once for those gifts.I am currently packing for a trip tomorrow and, as I do not know if I will have wifi at my destination I may be off line for a week or so. I, too, do not need any aggravation.
