    Dear SS,
    Thanks for the warm welcome.When I read Atlanta as address,nostalgic memories started flooding me ,as I passed thro Atlanta to stay in a place called Muscle Shoals for a month in 1984.Mr.Patel,the motel owner overwhelmed me with his hospitality when he learnt that I was a strict vegetarian.That is by the way.Mythili used to be called as Lakshiminarayanan's wife for decades but ever since she started writing to IL .I am being referred to as Mithila Madam's husband.This is great.Mutual appreciation of each other's strengh and building on it is a rewarding experience,as the warm welcome from ilites,demonstrates.

    Regards
    LAKSHIMINARAYANAN

    Dear Ashwini,
    Thanks for the feedback.Each one of us be it a male or female is a bundle of contadictions.What makes life easier is to look at the brighter side of each other and enjoy whatever God has bestowed on us.

    Dear Jaijuio.
    Compliance is an inescapable fact of life-if not for this,for something else.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    Dear Lakshminarayan,

    Welcome to Indusladies forum! Congratulations on being nominated to our FP forum so soon after your entry here!:thumbsup

    Though I read your piece earlier, I could not give a fb till now.

    First of all, I am thrilled to know the other half of the Kannan duo and I can forsee both the halves contesting for the same FP of the Month!! Well, yours seems to be a made in heaven match. From what I have read here, you are well versed with words and have put forth your story with humor and candour. I will now check out your other inputs in the forum for surely it will be intersting and a pleasure to read.

    I see that you have decided to give up on the Saturday fever, more for your own comfort zone as I understand!! But now you have entered our Mithila ma'm's favorite domain and I hope you will not pose a competition here! We do not want an 'Abhiman' unfolding here?!!:rotfl

    Jokes aside, enjoyed reading your piece and we at IL can only be thrilled that our pleasures will be doubled what with both of you enthralling us with your wonderful posts.

    L, Kamla

    Dear Kamla,
    Thanks for the warm welcome.When one writes,it has to be a win win situation for both the writer as well as the reader.Iam not a prolific writer like mythili nor can I weave a story in such a way that you become a part of the story by the time you are throgh with it.Iam in the compliance zone since retirememnt and Iam thoroughly enjoying it.Though new to indus ladies ,every one has made me feel comfortable with their warmth and positive comments.This can only spur me to dish out delectable fare in the days to come.
    Regards

    @Amulet
    John Travolta! What a man! From Saturday Night Fever to Broken Arrow to The Fanatic!
    You have an excellent recall!

    Travolta was a child star. I saw him first in the TV drama "Welcome back Kotter", about a brooklyn, NY school. It is sort of like a stretched out version of "To Sir with Love" running to several half hour episodes on TV.

    Here is the first episode of "Welcome Back, Kotter". Spot Travolta ( Character: Vinnie Barbarino) in Kotter's class.
