You think I'm strict? Try talking to her dad. It's rather funny, she says any time she even mentions a guy's name from school, he gives her "the look". "Who is that", "do I know him???" She's only 13 but I feel grateful that he's so protective. It will do her well.

dating is looking for a marriage partner

I agree with you there. I didn't start dating until I was 19. But then I never did find that marriage partner . . . must have gone about it all wrong.

We have very different stories then. I married at 17 and remained married to someone very different for 25 years. I would prefer to go the route of my eldest who waited and married someone who had similar interests. That is what I hope for my youngest. I think it should be a requirement, at least wait until you're 25!!

So, you didn't date until 19. Did you think that was a bad thing? I have one left, what would are your recommendations based on your life?

Is this from personal experience? I've done both. One went well and one didn't go so well. I'm really hoping for the best on the third one.

I'm here.

Another average week, EXCEPT for yesterday. (I rarely have a bad week anymore, at least work-wise.)

But yesterday, after the Zarquari announcement came, the owners wife and me had some (political) words. And for the FIRST time since I have been there (about 6 mths. now, SHE, not her husband, was less-than-nice to me!!

It started with her standard "the war was not worth it", mantra. That led to "over 10,000 of our kids have been killed or maimed, for nothing!!". Then"how will Zarquari's death change anything"?

With each response from me, supporting the conservative position, and the WOT, her anger grew. It peaked with me saying "you can't defeat terrorists by sending friendship cards, flowers and getting together for a group hug, and also when I suggested that "if they ever do find WMD's ,the ENTIRE liberal platform will collapse like a house of cards"!!

After this, and after her talking to someone on the phone who must also have been conservative, she kinda took out her frustration on me. But she left for lunch soon after and when she returned, she did not start any more political discussions with me(she started ALL of the ones before!!)

Other than that, it was another pretty good week. On my other job today, I worked on a VERY difficult set, which had been given up on be 2 previous techs, and I FIXED it, which pleased the boss immensely!!

oh bummer!

so sorry for this episode.

but we all know.. liberals are liberals are liberals are liberals.

There are some that truly think & others that merely spout off the "talking points"

Glad you are here with us know to get your energy (conservative energy that is) restored.

OMG.. 8 hours of yard work??? and you are still able to see, walk, etc?

Welcome dear friend. You have others in "your shoes" here. Most have not arrived yet.

I did a few hours in yard. My friend & FReeper Wheelbarrow came & helped me for a few hours. Then we did a "doggie" walk & I took him out for Mexican.

I had a friend (a very funny one) that used to say..

The best way to raise kids.

When they are 11.. put them in a hole in ground. give them food etc, exercise. Let them out when they are 21/

Bev, there are all ages & backgrounds here. We are here to be friends & help each other. One thing I have learned that I can learn a lot when I dont expect it..

good folks here. I come & go. I should be here a lot this weekend (as I am hostess) but will probably not.

There are several women (and a few guys) our age.

The raven was here last weekend & a few others you know.

I am having a really tough few "oliver" days lately... 6 months almost. too many tears still. too empty of a heart still.

I used to hate yard work, but figure it is what is keeping me "young". Tomorrow, I am going to vacuum the spiders (ick) off my deck area and wash the windows and glass panels. Then...hopefully, the weather will stay nice so I can paint the decks with the Wolmanite water proofing. I was lucky today...stayed overcast and in the high 50's all day....perfect for mowing, berry vine whacking, hedge trimming, etc.

I think she was also upset to find out that I DO know who Ann Coulter is, that I like her, and that I DO support her standing up to the "jersey girls".

But like most liberals, she is NOT aware of the way that Christians and conservatives in this world do NOT have much "freedom of speech", that we can get smeared and impugned by the Drive-by media and liberals like Soros, the jersey girls, Dixie chicks and Micahel Moore, but we are NOT supposed to respond!!

(((dolly))) Yes, we will always remember the Oliver pups and Rusty cats that come into our lives and then leave all too soon. My Oscar is now 15 years old and I know I am not going to have him much longer. He is showing signs of aging but, although blind, he gets around quite well.

I positively LOVE yard work.. flowers, veggies, weeding, lawn care.. could have an atrocious house that you cant walk in.. (Opps.. I do).. and still avoid it to go outside & do the dirt/yard stuff.

I did the ATRW junk garden.. fun. ugly but fun.

BTW.. my friend Wheelbarrow is 10 years older than you & will no doubt show up soon (if he doesn't get to his single dance)

Cali is the same Bev. born in 1988.. still my sweetheart & rules the house (over dogs too)

I had a long, long crying session today at O's grave.. I have two wonderful pooches now.

but just like men.. I think sometimes there is one special person/pet who will always hold the special place.

It takes our growth to let other people/pets step in along the way to NOT REPLACE but to be part of the "new" life

I mow about an acre with a gas mower - not self propelled. I think it is what keeps me in good physical condition. It is the hedge trimming, edging and whacking back berry vines that takes SO much time!

I am going to go walk Oscar before the coyotes come out. See you all later....

yes!

One is never too old, can be too thin, too rich or have too many cats (dogs?)..

as the old saying goes.

No doubt written by an older, skinny, stinky rich gal with 100 cats & dogs!!!!

I mow over an acre with an electric mower & hundreds of feet of cord. Bummer.

AND I have 6 mowers needing repair.. next to the 7 vacuum sweepers that are NEW & wont work.

A "fixer up kinda guy" is pretty appealing to me at this point

Been there, done that. It doesn't matter how good the parents are..

I think I have been a good parent, and I have to say the ex, he's been a decent parent too. Sometimes we have kids that do not accept a good parentage and who can't accept a good growth environment. I think perhaps we should talk privately.
