Your comment makes little sense. What in the world are you trying to say about your own son?? Do you really think this women lives in Geneva. I can tell you don't.

Yes cora I have lived in sleepy Geneva ALL my life. My point is a 8 and 10 year old could probably handle a 50 year old woman. When I wrestle and with my boys 9 -13 they give me all I want to handle meaning they are very tough. I am 240 pounds and they are a handful for me! I think (no I know) no 50+ year old lady is a match for either of my boys. She probably just wanted to show them her dog get a grip stop watching the TV so much!

You've missed the point. Your comment does not make sense until you've written a paragraph to explain what you meant in those three sentences. I, too, have lived in Geneva all of my life. I don't know how you can call Geneva sleepy when there are drug dealers and sex offenders throughout. By the way, I don't watch TV. I enjoy the outdoors of our beautiful town, Geneva.

Well Cora, you're wrong again as it looks like the lady does in fact live in Geneva and also was as Rudy put it "the old lady just wanted to show the kids her Dog".. C'mon, tell us the real reason you're so bitter, is it because Romney is down in the polls...is that what this is really about Cora?
