Lisa ditto what Karen in VA and Tracey said about the sarcastic greeting cards. There IS a market there Brilliant re-framing! Feel there is also a market for that gift/skill, if not in greeting cards, then perhaps posters or encouraging gift items?Flea likewise ditto Karen in VA’s “timely” comment and Machka’s recommendation to talk to a lawyer. See your DH has spoken with Lawyers, were they Utah licensed? Seems like there are significant difference in the states’ definitions of “estate” when it comes to Medicaid cost recovery.Karen in VA what telling photos, both the swim meet prep, but especially the first meeting with Liliana. Kate in UK ((hugs)) so hard to be far away and unable to have a private to with your brother. Is there a community center nearby he could take her for an afternoon’s respite, then meet or call you? Likely he really needs someone to give him the gift of listening first.Katla happy anniversary, such a romantic wedding! High water mark on the fireplace? :noway: Say “Hi” to Arrow for us.Pip “touchy gas pedal” on forever beast, somehow sounds just like you Does it talk to you in a bossy tone like my car does?SuziQ for your loss, tho’ Heather said it better. Thanks for your wise words to Flea. Boy, howdy! does your promotion story ring true. I am SO happy to be out of the corporate politics and BS. Really hoping your title comes through before the borrowed time expires.Beth so good to see your smiling face!Tracey what an interesting bitter cucumber cure! Find the seasonally available Persian and English (soft skinned) cucumbers sweeter, than the waxy skinned ones available year round. That reminds me, time to order more beit alpha cucumber seeds, an F1 hybrid so saving seeds year to year won’t work.
Welcome Ani in Toronto!Rebecca your cooking makes my mouth water, and your Athena Rose with her Papa makes my heart happy.Janet in Tx sounds like a workable solution to me. Well done.Machka any progress on the online course front? Hoping that bit of good could come out of the coronavirus tragedy.Rori smiling to hear of your DH enjoying Ford vs Ferrari. Did your DH recognize the surfboard shop in the movie, or did you just know?Marianne sounds horrible, like your son and DIL need help rearing their children. Are there any community counseling services in their area? At 6 and 9 if nothing changes, their behavior will worsen and they will get into real real trouble. Congratulations on keeping weight steady despite stress!Terri “give thanks every morning when I wake up” Amen, sister, amen! Then give thanks for Joe, the pooches, everyone who I’ve ever loved or whoever has loved me, this beautiful place we live in… and indoor plumbing
Lighter, lovelies!Barbara, the Southern Oregon Coastie AHMOD

Pip Yogi – such a Sweetie! Love his shiny coat!
Debby DD and GS picture from Christmas…so cute!
Amber DD is so sweet taking care of “little” bro JR!
Lisa Wondering what your sarcastic card suggestions were. I bet I would like them! I always wondered what others do for cards to the awkward people in our lives. I never found cards that were fitting. “To Dad who was inappropriate with me” or “To the Stepmother Who Never Loved Me” …lol. They always said wonderful things that were so far off!! LOL…I just read the one you quoted…I would by that in a heartbeat!
Rebecca Love the Athena Valentine!! Congrats on the weight loss!! My GD loves Daddy’s beard. He’s one of those who uses all the current special oils, etc. for his beard. Glad he takes good care of it to keep it soft and sweet smelling…lol!
Michele I, too, tend to take store bought food when we go to church meals or whatever. I don’t consider myself that good of a cook, plus it is already packaged for easy carry and people know what to expect. Also, I tend to be sad when I make things from scratch and people don’t take it. When I was younger, I used to make everything myself.
Pip I’m impressed your Suburban is so clean! I can’t keep our vehicles nice like that…there is always dirt around the doors, etc. We have a lot of red clay here. Is your new vehicle a Highlander? We recently got a Rav4 and I love it!!
Husband deaths For all of you who are widows, I can’t imagine how hard it is. I totally dread the idea of DH passing. I really hope I go first. He would be fine without me. I would be a mess!!
Amber Glad your friend is joining us! How old were you when you had JR? I was only 38 with my youngest, but the doctors wouldn’t shut up about my “advanced maternal age”. Drove me nuts! I had a 12-year spread from youngest to oldest – one graduated kindergarten the year the other graduated high school.
Kate I didn’t see a need for a spoiler! You didn’t write a lot and it wasn’t offensive. Dementia runs in my family. I was diagnosed early onset after my accident, but I think it was misdiagnosed because they were confused by the brain injury. It has improved, although I still grasp for words and get lost easily – especially when I am tired.
Karen Such sweet pictures of the Grands! Older GD is so good with little Lilliana!
Terri Thank you so much for the map!! I love having the visual! Especially like that you pointed out where you and Heather are located. I need to look back, I think Kate and Viv are both over there, too. Anyone else?? I’ve never travelled across the Atlantic and always love the documentaries there – such pretty country! My Aunt and Uncle lived in England most of my life, but the family never went to visit. In school, we studied Canada, USA, and Central and South America, but the rest of the world was really a mystery. I had a beautiful globe which I looked at, but a lot of countries have changed names and boarders, so even that would no longer be accurate.
SuzyQ Sorry to read about your work situation. I never gelled well with the corporate world. I guess because I don’t tolerate people as well as I should. It drove me crazy having to document everything in a CYA file. I expected people to know my character and believe what I said. Also, since most of my career was as a musician, we didn’t live in a “normal” world. Same with working as a massage therapist and esthetician.
Luci in WNC getting closer to catching up. Maybe later today…
