Back on the topic of home remedies I like to remind folks of the benefits of Witch Hazel. This is a wonderful astringent and I find it very refreshing to splash it on my face after shaving. It helps on skin that is irritated, sunburned, etc. Witch Hazel is very soothing to the "nether regions" and gives relief to itching, rashes, and hemorrhoids.
I like Witch Hazel too ... for the face (I didn't know about the other "nether region" uses though )
Just be sure to use the kind that doesn't contain alcohol as it's too drying at least for the facial area.

Good point. I use a product called T. N. Dickinson's Witch Hazel, but the bottle says it contains 14% alcohol. However, I do believe they make an alcohol-free version as well. It is available in Whole Foods.

Yes, I know. I guess I didn't articulate that very well. It is sad. I am wondering how he is holding up.

Curm sounds like a really nice guy. Bad things happen to nice people. It is a shame she made that decision, to leave.

I am thinking that there might be more to the story, there often is. If there is another side we don't know about, I hope that before she made that decision, some counseling was done first.

At our ages, being left is pretty darned devastating. Especially if you are thinking all is well and suddenly someone pulls the rug out from under you.

Good luck to Curm. I hope he can adjust to it and move on.

I'm holding up fine, thank you, and all of you. My wife has landed in California, is ecstatic to be there with her family and for now is quite content. I'm glad for her and fending for myself quite well under the circumstances. If she decides to return to the Ozarks I'd put her up until such time as she had the wherewithal to get her own place but I think that would be it. Sadly, my trust level is at an all-time low.
