I've had a number of cats. My first one was a beautiful white rescue who would slip out occasionally. It was hit by a car and it appears to have died instantly. He was around 5 years old at the time....

I used to have dogs and cats. I also had fish (they were actually DS') and a tarantula. Once they were all gone, I decided against any more pets because of travel.

Good for your DH! Walking is so good for body and mind.

Wow! I hope I can do this when I'm 79! I do 5-10 miles a day as well, but I'm a wee bit younger.

Same in my old school district. We did have tenure, but it didn't start until our third year.

The number of cases was on a...

For those of you who got Zenni glasses, how were you able to make sure they fit you? I have always had a hard time trying to make the frames fit. My present pair is the first one in 50+ years that I...

I learned my lesson 20+ years ago, when I tried to hand wash a rayon skirt. I saw it shrink before my eyes.

DH got an unexpected appointment after trying for a week online. It was 100 miles away but he didn't mind. He said his car had been in the garage too long and needed to be driven.
It is now even...

Almost no house is going to be perfect. I'm glad you found something you like.

older machines

I have a Sears Kenmore sewing machine from the 60s, and I prefer it over the one I bought in the 90s, even though it doesn't have all he fancy features like embroidery. It is heavy because it has...
