Thank you for the update. Glad you are able to be with her.

Woke up to a couple inches of snow on the ground. Was able to try out a new snow shovel and snow blower, (snow blower was a bust - snow too 'wet'). This winter will be "interesting", as I've lived my whole life within 50 miles of where I was born, except for a five-year stint about 150 miles away. There isn't much snow in SoCal. There sure is a bunch up here in North Idaho. Going to church this morning was fine. No problems. Just had to drive a little bit slower and more cautiously. No worries because it seems like nobody is in a hurry up here.

Good Morning everyone! Gee, no posts in the Chat Thread for 2 days! Wow!
I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather. We sure are down here in AZ.

Jim - I was so sorry to hear about the mean guy you encountered, mistreating his horse. So horrible! You go out for a pleasant morning walk and witness that. Sad.

Volosong - I hope you enjoy your new living experience in Idaho.

We have a sick Kitty, so today we will be taking him into the Vet. He has been very lethargic for the past two days and gone into "hiding" to rest. I hope he is all right - not that old - middle-aged, I would call him. Have to skip the Alzheimer's Caregiver Support group - conflicting times! After that, taking care of our Special Needs grandchild and last of all, a run out to the airport for an 8:45 pick-up. A busy day, off and on.

Made the mistake of having a cup of coffee later in afternoon yesterday. Most of the time, no problem. Yesterday, problem, I could not get to sleep. So I got up, made some decaf tea, turned on the television.

Watched a couple of shows till the local news came on. Bad accident in another town..... nephew of a friend of mine. He crashed into a tree, no seat-belt on, intoxicated. Killed instantly. His mother had died about a month ago.

Still trying (at 12:30 p.m.) to keep eyes open, they just want to shut and some sleep.

NYgal: It happens. I had an incident a couple days ago when I shut off the light, then lay there for 2 hours. I sat up, put on my little reading light and took up my book again. It was 3:15 when I tried, again, to sleep. Both dogs were out cold. They didn't even wake to the light. And, of course, one dog has an alarm in him. At the stroke of 7, he wants out. So, it was a very short sleep !

Hope your friend has some comfort in her grief. So sorry. Maybe he was reacting to his Mom's death.

Thank you for your understanding. Since I have been retired, I am almost always able to fall asleep within 5-10 minutes after going to bed. It's the rare occasion like last night that drives me nuts.

As far as the car accident, etc. I "know" I heard the name as one thing early this morning (it is not a common name). But when they announced the name on news tonight, completely different. Also not male, but female. Oh my gosh..... am I losing it?

I successfully restrained myself:


There is a thread in the Psychology Forum entitled "I really can't stand the human race anymore." Curmudgeon posted a compassionate and encouraging response. Here is the OP's vicious and mean answer to Curmudgeon: "To be honest the last thing I care about is what you had to deal with." Can you believe that?


I was tempted to respond to the OP title statement with "Well, we really can't stand you anymore either!" But I know that would have led to bad things for me. Let no one say I have never restrained myself!

Good call. I've had to sit on my hands and refrain from typing out my responses this week in several forums, including this one. And it's only Tuesday!

It's hard to imagine there are people like that in the world. But it's a sad truth.

I hope Curm let it roll off his back.

A friend who is really into Twitter told me that there are some posters/tweeters/etc. who simply spend all their screen time hunting down places to say nasty stuff. What a life they must lead and what a sh*tstorm their minds must look like inside.

I agree with you. Unfortunately there are some out there who think the world owes them a living. And they cry and whine because nobody is rescuing them. They have to be able to "see" what they have done to create the problem. Till then, I don't think poster will find help. As someone else mentioned, a lot of us have been "dragged through the mud" so to speak but were able to rescue ourselves.
