    For some people, there's one only word that came to mind just now:

    dissertation.

    Chi, what's wrong?
    Chiangmai

    I meant to say that some people, not you, don, seem to get a kick out of writing a long composition for an answer when in fact the same can be said in less than 20 words, hence the word "dissertation".

    Type!

    Depends on the subject.

    I like to keep things short and simple when possible, my husband is the opposite and when reading some of his reports I couldn't help but ask were they as tedious to write as they are to read, often reports I need to write consist of one or two sentences, supplying enough information without all the rambling or boring irrelevant  detail.

    DonDowningJr

    That's a long answer! Not short enough!
    lambshank

    I thought that myself....maybe I do like to ramble!

    Depends on how many facets of a subject are being addressed, and whether or not background needs to be included.

    DonDowningJr

    Good answer Shootah! Thank you! Facets, Backgrounds, really?

    Not type!

    I like to type, and I like to talk.  It makes me feel more successful if I can completely answer in a few words  ; too much extra isn't worthwhile. Sometimes I spell out things, particularly in math. I'd like people to understand how to get the simple math that I can do so they can do it themselves.

    I love you Bob!
    Bob/PKB

    I love you, too, Don!
    DonDowningJr

    O.K.! We are in love!
    Bob/PKB

    Works for me :D
    DonDowningJr

    You flatter me!
    Bob/PKB

    You flatter me, too! Like I said, works for me!

    I love to type!! Sometimes I don't even realize how much i have typed-- And i do it all with two fingers. fast too! LOL  I can type as fast as i talk and I'm from Cincinnati originally and we talk fast!!

    DonDowningJr

    I only have four fingers!
    Vinny

    Wow Don, what happened to the other four fingers??
    DonDowningJr

    paper guillotine, chop! when I was 19.
    DonDowningJr

    Very sad, I played guitar 10 years before that. Dec 26 I took my Cristmas money and bought a Gybson flat top guitar, Dec 27 I chopped my fingers off. I was 19 and married with a six week old baby girl, 1972.
    DonDowningJr

    Vinny, I learned to play bass with my nubs and I was very good. I played bass in bands for years, actually I was a great bass player. Drummers loved me and I had the right equipment, Aquoustic head, Sun 2-15 reflex bottom and a Fendor Pression Bass with a maple neck
    Vinny

    Hey! i had one of those too! Fender PB maple neck, also I had a 58 strat, natural w/ maple neck.. It was burned up in a fire. i wish i still had it, I bought it used in around 1966 I think, I paid 75 bucks with a tweed case. I don't do much guitar anymore, all keys now. B3 is my main instrument but I also play piano as well professionally, and sell 'em. I'm in the piano business for over 30 years.
    DonDowningJr

    I later bought a Marshall solid state head but I always kept my Sunn cabinets, I two, 2 15 inch cabinets. I'm old school. I loved my Fender guitar. We were a legend. At least my daughter thought so and that was good enough for me.
    DonDowningJr

    That 58 Strat was a huge loss. I hope nobody was injured.
    Vinny

    No injuries in the fire but everything was lost-- Even to this day I remember something 'I had'.. As time goes by, these little things lost in the fire and forgotten pop back into your head and you think-- "yeah, I have that--or I mean had that.."

    The Strat was a big loss today, not then, it was just a fender guitar then-today its a collector item. I had many items lost i wish I had today.
    DonDowningJr

    We live and we gain and we loose, that's life. Life, live it.

    I  always start off thinking I`ll keep things short...but I CAN`T...ONCE i START..THERE`S no stopping me!!:-¬..LIKE YOU HADN`T NOTICED!!!:-))lol!

    Ahh Ducky..you`re such a doll..i mean duck!!,,SO DIPLOMATIC!!...i think the word you are actually looking for is "MAD"!!!LOL...(it`s my life coping strategy)!!;-))

    I love to type (just ask some of my email buddies) but I get a kick out of answering with just a few words (unless I'm really tired.........)

    Perhaps!

    I am not sure about me.  Just waiting to see what umbriel has to say regarding this subject.

    This has been up for 13 hours ... I can hear a pin drop.
    Bob/PKB

    Well said Tommyh!
    Ducky, book learning aint people learning, is it.
    Chiangmai, I very much appreciated your cryptic answer!

    I type because I like it.

    I think it depends on the mood.

    I only have 9 fingers to start with.Never had any formal training in typing.So.. typing ain't my thing.

    DonDowningJr

    I hear you Tommyh!
    itsmee

    Your typing looks fine. However, I would say that thinking is your thing. : )

    Poets say a lot in a few words. It's a skill.


     I love to type. I like to just let my mind get going and type and type. I know nobody would read it so I try to keep it short. 

    I shall ask the animals.

    I don't type, I hunt and peck. I try to keep it short and still answer or make my point.

    DonDowningJr

    check bro!
