    Good question, how CAN facebook stuff be removed after someone dies? A long time friend died without my knowing a couple years ago and all her facebook stuff is still online. I was shocked when I learned she died. Can’t someone remove that stuff or at least post an update?

    Opal and I have something in common. Seven bags of frozen rhubarb have disappeared from my freezer. Two loaves of homemade bread have vanished from the refrigerator. Either I am losing my mind or we have a ghost. Husband, of course, thinks the former.

    We had an uncle going into dementia who did the same thing. This could be a bad sign.

    Nelson & his family live down the street. Once I saw Opal looking at their house through binoculars, but they keep the drapes closed !

    We have a friend like Earl but we think he finishes fast when we go out to dinner so he has more time to talk!

    I’m 71, female, and I sewed clothes for the children and canned vegetables from the garden many years ago. Now i live in a condo, shop for clothes online. Even the grandchildren are grown and buy their own clothes. I still cook, mostly from scratch.

    She’s lucky there’s a fabric store in her town. It used to be that most department stores had a fabric department, like Sears, Penney’s and Walmart, too. That all ended in the 70s when women stopped making clothes for themselves and their kids and got jobs. We have one Walmart in a neighboring town that has a fabric department but when the newer one was built nearby that ended, too. The real fabric stores, the few that exist, sell lots of craft supplies and decorative items these days, too.That’s how they can survive, I guess.

    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 !
