    I started wearing fanny pack too when I had shoulder surgery. Still have it. I throw extra stuff in a bag if I need it. We will be warm here in Ca. 68 yesterday. Happy Sunday all.

    Is it any wonder that Cathy became a total nut-job? Don’t listen to her, Cathy—just do what you want and buy the little purse!

    HI, MOM. Good Sunday Morning, “Cathy” Clan.

    I love purses as much as the next girl, but I really do hate switching all the necessary-for-life stuff inside them from one purse to the other.

    I’m with you, summerdog. Although it takes me a while to find a purse I like, when I do, I’m really happy with it but I don’t like moving everything to the new one. I guess it’s a good excuse to clean out though. I’m more of a medium purse girl though. I have too much stuff for a small purse, but I don’t like big purses either. Things get lost in them too easily.

    Hello Cathy clan, and Happy New Year!! (Sorry for the late greeting :-)) I had a good trip to see my mom, although I missed you all! We moved her into an assisted living facility, so we were very busy buying and moving things for that. I sort of felt like I had a college student buying lamps and organizers and dishes. I think she is happy though and she’ll be well taken care of there.

    Stay warm and dry, friends! (How much snow do you have, sis?) We got snow while we were in MD, which was exciting, and we’re due to get snow tonight in GA. The big difference is that MD is prepared to handle snow (plows and salt), while GA is crippled until it melts. I bet the kids’ first day back at school will be postponed… sad.

    p.s. A belated big thank you for the nice birthday wishes! :-)

    While I’d like with all my heart to carry a MUCH smaller purse than I do on a daily basis, I just have way too much stuff I need [or may need!] in order to do it. Thankfully though, it’s nowhere near as big, over-stuffed and heavy as Cathy’s is because I constantly keep it cleaned out and organized enough to get away with going medium-sized instead.


    Hi, rgcviper!


    lightenup: Welcome back, soul sister! We’ve really missed you around here. Glad to hear your mom is settling nicely into her new home and will be happy there. No snow yet where I’m at but we’re expecting some later on tonight — anywhere from 1" to 8" [depending on which weather guy you believe!]. It’s currently 41° and rainy here and the low is predicted to fall all the way to 4° which, by the way, is tomorrow’s predicted high too. I am just soooooooooooooo ready to move to Florida now . . . I just wish I was married to someone who felt the exact same way I do!!! At the current time of 3:56 p.m., says it’s 75° in Tampa and a majority of the next 10 days will be in the 70’s for highs, too. I am SO envious of those lucky people who get to live there on a full-time basis!!!!!


    Hello and Happy Sunday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Hope you’ve been having a nice weekend so far.

    I’m a rarity; I don’t carry a purse at all. Keys and Rogue wallet in my right pocket; huge flash drive with all backup computer files (yes, I’m a geek!), pocket knife, spare change, and pill case in my left pocket. I’ve detested purses since I was a little kid, so swore that if it didn’t fit in my pockets, I didn’t need to take it with me. Pony tail and ball cap to complete my ensemble, and I’ve been doing it this way for over 40 years. I need to teach Cathy how it’s done in the real world — LOL!!!

    Hey sis!! Glad you haven’t been hit yet and the temp isn’t too bad (so far). Regarding Florida, in the winter it sounds nice, but is a nightmare in the summer. If you can handle the heat (and the huge palmetto bugs and the bad drivers), FL might be for you but this is as far south as I can handle! :-) Talk tomorrow! Stay warm!

    Me too. I only change purses for dress and then I use one that just holds a credit card, phone and a comb that I break in half to fit. I’ve carried small purses since I wrecked my shoulder carrying books around in a shoulder bag back in my undergrad college days.

    We had 14.4 inches of snow at last measure — and it’s expected to snow til 4:00 AM, then drop temps all day to -14 by Tuesday morning. We did go for a walk in it today, but I don’t think we’ll be venturing out tomorrow.

    Let’s see…spare magazines, cuffs, light, OC spray, sidearm, wallet, some loose change, knife—-yep, got it all! In my pockets or on my belt or it stays home.
