Spoke to her today - she's doing quite well - obviously, we would like to have her back here - can't wait until she returns.

Not rambling at all....memories of a different time, different morals, different society.

Thanks for sharing.

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...30 degrees and VERY slippery outside.

Still swamped at work? Another work weekend coming up?

Good evening to you, ML. *hugs*

I'm so sorry for your grieving day. His memory is alive and will live for many years thanks to the JNF and 2 thriving trees!

Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

Don't encourage me! Once I get started on those days, there's no stopping me! LOL!

Still swamped at work - it looks like another full-day Saturday. Still, it's good to feel needed. And better to get paid time and a half. :)

Good early evening, AZ....

Hope your commute was sunny and without incident.

I've been coming home a different route. The berms are getting higher and higher. We are at 129 inches of snow. It is going to take all summer for all of the snow in the yard to melt.

It was a very different world. I was in kindergarten and (heaven forbid) walked to school! Just under a mile. No matter what the weather...lol. No TV. And not a care in the world! :)

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!




Tattoo

Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly – the bugler already mounts the parapet. Will chat with you all on the morrow.

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!

Thank you so much! She seems to think she’ll be up and at ‘em pretty quickly. I hope she’s right. My shoulder surgery put me out of commission for about 2 weeks. LOL!

memories of a different time, different morals, different society.

Especially the morals! Seems so many of the younger generations have next to none.

I had a torn rotator cuff and the doc told me I'd be off work for possibly 6 months if I had surgery and there was no guarantee it wouldn't tear again. Can you guess my answer to him? lol

That’s what mine was, and I was back at work...in the restraint...in about a month...maybe less. I had therapy that restored my full range of motion that was pure torture! LOL! But it did work!

You have hit the nail on the head....too many of today’s younger generation seem to have little to no morals. So many have not had to work for ANYthing. They don’t understand the “price” of every day living.

Good evening, Mooch, and Gut Shabbes.

You use a good word...”innocence”. I like it. There was something new each day, things to look forward to, things that came with each new age.

I too miss that.

I didn't start school until 1954 and didn't have to walk, it was too far away. But did have to stand outside on the road waiting for the school bus no matter what the weather. That was when I was in upstate NY.

When we were in California, it was the same drill but I was older then and chose to hike to school and catch up with Townie friends. It was only two miles.

Wasn't always that way, just in few spots. We were Navy Brats and lived in many locations, moving every six months or so.

I had cortisone shots and did my exercises and it healed itself. Doc said they will sometimes do that so I was very lucky!

Most have never learned the work ethics we were taught. I know some who could never keep a job longer than a few months as they either knew more than the boss or just couldn’t make it to work on time!

Good evening, Taz...((HUGS))...has your weather improved? No more tornadoes?

We’ve never had so much....I hope it melts before next winter. 132” is the record and we may be breaking that record in the next week. I’m tired of shoveling. My street is only one car wide now. The garbage truck pulled into a driveway yesterday morning so I get out.
