You blockhead what did you not understand when I indicated that I have

no intention of becoming a societal dropout? *A hermit, I will never
be. *I will leave that to the dysfunctional types of Dolan's ilk. *Cats
are a poor substitute for contact with one's own species. *By the way,
you once again have put you ignorance on display, running your mouth
about something you know little about. *I had a cat for many years,
from a kitten until it had to be put down due to disease. *I just
happen to prefer dogs and that is my prerogative.

Let us say your wife left you and and took your poor old longsuffering hound
dogs with her, leaving you all alone in the world.

Lets just say that this hypothetical scenario has a very slim chance
of ever happening.

How long would you last
on your own?

I lived on my own for some time before marrying my wife and did just
fine and didn't have dogs at the time either, BUT ,and this is a big
but, ... not having a spouse or a pet is not tatamount to being a
hermit. I was still a member of society ... unlike a hermit.

I suspect you might even have to renew your friendship with Ed
Gin out of desperation.

I suspect you are in need of a reality check ... never going to happen
in this lifetime.

You wouldn't last a single year as a hermit

Irrelevant ... since, as previously stated SEVERAL TIMES, I have no
such inclination.

whereas I have lived the past 40 years pretty much as a hermit. That takes Greatness!

Delusion is such a comfort. As is often the case, our conclusion does
not strictly follow from your premise. Do not misconstrue living a
voluntary cloistered, estranged life with fantacized greatness.
