Lawyers. Once an ambulance chaser, always an ambulance chaser ….. even in death! :-P
My husband and I have been “stuck” at stage one for the past 29 years now. He’s the best man I’ve ever known and I’m still just as crazy in love with him today as the day I married him! ♥
My deepest condolences at the loss of your beloved wife as well! :-(
My deepest condolences at the loss of your beloved wife! :-(
I first wore braces from grades 6 to 8. When they came off, I wore a retainer for several years after that, until I was a young adult (around age 21, I think) and my orthodontist dismissed me as a patient because his work with me was finally done after so many years. Unfortunately, I quit wearing it after that and eventually, a couple of my upper and lower teeth moved. They weren’t really that noticeable to anyone but me but it still made me feel self-conscious all the same so when I was 35, I went back to my orthodontist and began wearing braces again for the next year.
But unlike the first time when I was the only kid in my class to wear braces and was always being teased unmercifully because of them ….. the second time around I had some fun and every time they got “tightened” I changed up the colors of my rubber bands and would get red, turquoise, hot pink, etc. - whatever I was in the mood for at the time. I had to wear them so unless I kept my mouth shut and never smiled or spoke to anyone, everyone was going to notice them anyhow so why not?!? ;-)
It’s been about 13 years since I had them taken off and I’ve been faithfully wearing my retainers to bed at night ever since because I don’t want to risk having to wear braces again for a THIRD time someday (especially since my orthodontist has retired since then!). :-D
You should be sure to repeat this story to your girls so they know how important it is to continue wearing their retainers after their braces come off in order to keep their pretty, straight teeth that way forever so they don’t have to possibly wear them again someday as an adult like I did. I may have had some fun with the multiple-colored elastics the second time around, but I would have much rather not needed to wear them again at all.
((( Hugs ))) to your sweet Lil! ♥
From the very first panel, I just knew that whatever Mr. Pinkley was toasting with had to be FULL of nothing but empty calories so in this case, Charlene’s right: because the men are all drinking frappuccinos while she and Cathy aren’t drinking anything, the girls are indeed (at least for now) “winning” the office weight-loss challenge. ;-)
Hi, rgcviper! :-)
lightenup: How are you, hubby and Jr. feeling today? Better, I hope. My husband and I were both sick over Christmas and that really sucked. I sympathize with Lil as I got braces around her age (and then again for a couple of years as an adult) and completely understand how painful that whole process can be. Poor little dear. Love and hugs to that sweet baby girl of yours!
Hello and Happy Friday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone had a really nice day today! :-)
Shouldn’t that be: Wolf you’d take home to your GRANDmother? ;-)
When it comes to weight-loss, I’ll take whatever I can get. I’d rather lose REAL fat, of course, but even if it’s only 5 lbs. of water, that just may be the difference between me getting something I want to wear today zipped ….. or not. ;-)
Hi, rgcviper! :-)
lightenup: How’s Lil doing? Better, I hope. How much snow did you get yesterday? We got a light dust-covering overnight (maybe about 1/4" or so) and by late-afternoon, it was gone everywhere the sun touched it. SO much better than Indiana these days where they’re having some of the coldest, snowiest winter days they’ve had in years. Looks like my husband and I got out of there just in time! ;-)
Hello and Happy Thursday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone had a really nice day today! :-)
Just when I thought Cathy was finally going to take responsibility for her own weight gain, along comes poor Irving to blame it on instead. I wonder who’ll be next? Electra and Vivien? It certainly wouldn’t surprise me one bit if she did. Anything or anyone but herself. :-/
Hello and Happy Saturday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone’s been having a really nice weekend so far! :-)
Sadly, when it comes to a lot of people some things never seem to change no matter what decade or time-period it is. Why take responsibility for your own bad decisions when you can just blame them on something or someone else instead? :-/
lightenup: I just now left you a response on yesterday’s MB. :-)
Hello and Happy Tuesday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone had a really nice day today! :-)
