    Allergies can develop without warning. I am allergic to cats and I take an antihistamine when visiting people who have cats. Generally, they’re kind enough to put the cat in another room while I am there. That usually works.

    When I was growing up it was always my Mom who got my Dad’s birthday wrong. Every year she asked me, “Is your Dad’s birthday the 15th or the 16th?” I always said it was the 16th, but she thought I was wrong and always celebrated it a day early! Dad shook his head and one year he got a bit angry, saying they had been married for 20 years and she still couldn’t remember his birthday. I finally bought her a metal calendar with family members’ birthdates engraved on it. That FINALLY solved that situation.

    Husband told me about a girl he once knew back in high school. Her father owned the local garbage business and they had the most beautiful house in town !

    Maybe that’s what happens when you keep telling a kid he or she is “special”.

    We’ve had the same discussion in our home. We also have two bathrooms. I have mine and he has his, almost exclusively, so I have the paper coming from the back and his comes over the top of the roll. He claims that’s more convenient. We have no dog or cat so I don’t have that problem to deal with. Yes, if a man replaces the empty roll, that a big plus !

    It has a straw, so why does Opal tilt the whole bottle up? Maybe I’m missing something.

    My friend used to ride her 4 year old brother on the package seat behind her seat on the bike…with her mom’s permission. He was told only to “hold on”: Another friend rode her little sister on her bike’s handlebars. Nobody thought anything of it. Actually, I’ve wondered about those bike helmets. I never fell on my head but scraped my knees and elbows a lot along with ripping up sleeves and pant legs.

    After the episode where the dog swallowed the squeaky toy, you’d think Opal would have learned and not gotten the dog another toy !

    No..according to American Pie the day the music died was a sad February day in 1959. I remember it.

    Wash the foot and get on with life. Sheesh…she sounds like a teenager.
