I first apologise for may tardiness. I have been busy busy busy stocking up and washing my hands, and washing my hands and washing my hands.

I love emoticons…I love the Namasthe and the Om and both of these are not recorded in the Wikipaedia list.

Then I browsed and accessed getemoji.com and got
πŸ™πŸΌ and πŸ•‰

Flashback to some years ago. I wanted to send a hug to my grandkids….there was no emoji in the lot that I had on my phone. So I had to download

Image result for emoticon hug

which I used for a few years till this one came along.


The other day Madhura my granddaughter sent me a message compalining that her Mom was being mean. the level of meanness was demonstrated by dozen or more emojis.


Like a good MIL given an oppo to pull up my DIL I called Vandana and asked her why she was being mean to my granddaughter. she replied with a longer string of emojis saying, “Mom! Madhura is being mean to me!”

And now all those bright sparks out there are commenting on the worldwide Damocles Sword that is hanging over our heads…..They say
