    We get accused of this rather often. I rather like not being in the race but enjoying the sidelines.

    Very poignant thoughts Mr. Johnson. It is absolutely great to be this close to someone. My heart goes out to those who do not share such a mean.

    My wife had been B******* about a lack of change in scenery and being cooped up since the covid started.

    Is “get a hair” an idiom of some sort? I tried looking it up, but all I got were ads for hair transplants.

    With the way things are going these days, routine is very comforting.

    I think you hit a point in life where you have tried everything you’ve wanted to try that your personal time and money allow. Some of the things you try, you realize you don’t care for (remember Arlo’s dream of sailing, and then the nightmare worries about being caught in a storm once he had his boat?). Others you want to do more of.Some folks hit the “money” stop sooner than others and some hit the “time” stop. (There are two aspects to “time”: Enough time in your day to do the thing, and doing the thing that requires good health while you still have it.)

    Sometimes we have great ideas about doing things but don’t. I think it’s just that we like the thought of doing it but when it comes right down to doing it, we don’t want to. Does that make sense?

    So what if your life is the mean? Brew up the juice of the bean. It really is great, though it keeps you up late, so enjoy your time on the scene.

    “get a hair” refers to the colloquialism “get a wild hair up your a$$” or suddenly decide to do something wild or crazy. The what or level of wild or crazy is up to the individual. For a baker known to bake only Angels Food cake, to suddenly decide to bake a Devils Food cake would be the result of “getting a hair”.

    Surfing standing straight up with Janis sitting backwards reading? That’s what it looks like, anyway. Seems fun to me.

    Our family’s life is pretty routine. The dog loves it that way. She knows where mommy will be almost all the time. Sometimes I leave the house and she stays by the door waiting for me to return, even though there are 2 other people in the house.

    “Still get a hair”? Sounds like most readers never heard of that.

    I did lots of exciting things before I turned 30 and had kids. There was not a single activity I needed to wait until age 50 to do.

    That’s why our grandparents fought WWII. To have a day in the garden, a day at the beach and to sleep comfortably in their beds. Thanks so very much.

    I frequently tell people “if I have to leave my house to walk across the street and check my mail, then it no longer counts as a day off”. They tend to laugh and think it’s a good joke…

    I think the true measure of success, is when you have time off and have all the means to travel, but stay home voluntarily, because you’re happy there.

    But what does “We can still get a hair (though it’s becoming more rare)” mean? Who says “we can still get a hair”? Is this some hip way of expressing something? Is this just a crappy poem? Is it just ID-10T-ic ?

    Ya’ll whiners were never in the military, were you? Try wearing a gas mask for 4-6 hours at a time then come talk about your itty-bitty paper mask that doesn’t even make your eyeballs sweat.
