“The best proof of love is trust.” Dr. Joyce Brothers
"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence.”
T.S. Eliot quotes (American born English
"I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken - and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived. " Margaret Mitchell
"What is a kiss? Why this, as some approve: The sure, sweet cement, glue, and lime of love." Robert Herrick
Four Lovelies in Wisconsin, with the strings of their tender hearts ripped from the Lute of Love by a loathsome Lothario, Krazy-glued the Chedderhead's Johnsonville to his gut.
A sticky case of revenge unfolded last week in a Wisconsin motel after a woman discovered her husband was cheating and invited three other scorned lovers to settle the score -- with Krazy Glue.As always, do click my post title for the fine report on this Love Yarn from Chicago Tribune.
The 36-year-old Lothario was carrying on with all of them before his wife figured it out and notified the others, according to a criminal complaint filed in Calumet County, Wis., in a town about 90 miles north of Milwaukee.
"We had a plan," one of the women, Therese Ziemann, 48, told an investigator, according to court records.
Ziemann lured the man to a Stockbridge hotel Thursday, promising a "rub down," the complaint says. He was blindfolded and tied to a bed. Then Ziemann text-messaged the other three women, including the man's wife, who joined her in the room.
After the victim was threatened with mace, punched in the face and taunted, the mischief moved south.
Ziemann glued a sensitive body part to his stomach, according to the complaint.
The women, including Michelle Belliveau, fled when the man started yelling. All were later charged with false imprisonment. Ziemann also faces charges of fourth-degree sexual assault and misdemeanor battery. The wife was not named to protect the man's identity.
The man was treated and released at a hospital, said Calumet County District Atty. Kenneth Kratz, who otherwise declined comment.

However, this Bartlett's moment on Trust & Love in Wisconsin needs the recent offering of Chicago Renaissance Man and Captain of the Sweeter Sciences Mike Houlihan, from Irish American News, to fully understand this touching episode's sordid impact on us all who sojourn among those from the Dairy State:
There are a few mysteries I’d like the folks in Wisconsin to clarify. What’s with the cheese and porno shops all over the interstate? Guy is driving to Wisconsin and his pal says. “Hey, while you’re there pick me up a half pound of Colby, some night crawlers and the August issue of Juggs.”
I’ve been told that many Sapphic romances start at the University of Wisconsin when gal pals are out partying. “Hold my hair back Hanna, I’ve had twelve brews and I’m gonna hurl!”
And what’s the deal with everybody in Wisconsin wearing t-shirts with “clever” sayings imprinted on them? Wouldn’t it be easier for the state to just order about two million XXXXXXXL t shirts that say, “I’m with stupid!”
Thus Love Lanquishes Farve, Farve Away!
