Job offer

It would be a solid NO for me. I just retired from teaching this past May. I personally have zero desire to do anything with kids now, even subbing. I will definitely need to keep busy, and may even...

Another idea...

Use an empty Amazon box as your cat's litter box. When sufficiently full, tape it up and place on your front porch. Have a good laugh when porch pirates run off with a box of cat poop!...

I have a Panasonic Lumix and I love it! Very simple but takes great pictures. I keep it on the automatic setting... I never fool with the manual ones. But they are there if you want to get fancy. ;)
