"I guess I do, don't I? I did love it there and, though I was a good LDS kid and hadn't drunk a drop until my apostasy at age 25 -- I always wished I could spend a little time in those pubs; they seemed such welcoming and pleasant places."

"True, and one of the loveliest spots on the planet. For some reason, I was looking at a site the other day about the Nazi occupation. If your family's from there, you must have heard some stories.(BTW, you can call me Don. ;) )"

dadair commented on proudmormon's blog post ***Must Read!!!***
"I hear what you're saying, Pollypinks. I suppose my comment pertains more to folks who harbor doubts. For them, I think, a happy ex-member might threaten their sense of well-being; I was raised to believe that only LDS can be truly happy."

dadair commented on proudmormon's blog post ***Must Read!!!***
"I'd guess that happy, fulfilled ex-members are something of a threat to many LDS.  "

So true Don. In fact while my parents were attending church as investigators, us kids would all go to the pub with a family friend. I have great memories of those days. I love the pubs in Jersey. Even after becoming members, eating at the pub was a regular event with my grandparents. I can't stand drinking the stuff, but I love the smell of Guinness and pipe tobacco as it reminds me of those happy days.
