    If you have obvious spiders in your home, they are eating. Stop feeding the bugs spiders eat. If I find a spider in a web out in my space, I herd it out, and then sweep the web up. The cobwebs near the ceiling get dusty and cannot catch bugs, anyway; you’re helping the spiders by forcing them to either make a new web or move on.

    Another possibility, of course, might be to visit one of your local second-hand shops. We have a wonderful Saint Vincent de Paul store, with clothing, homemaking stuff, furniture, and a nice pantry for folks who are truly down on their luck.Buy used, wear it out, replace with more used stuff. People at the top of the consumer chain get rid of their stuff on a whim, and then we get a chance at it with heavy discounting.

    My wife and I, at seventy-five, needed to get shot ASAP. We’re, as of the beginning of October, vaccinated, boosterized, and flu shotterized. We went to the CVS in Target, because the VA doesn’t give five-dollar-off certificates at Target. And they’re FREE, anyway.

    My wife and I ditched cable TV and kept the cable Internet. We use ROKU and an amplified analog antenna that receives ALL of the local channels EXCEPT for FOX, in addition to Netflix, Prime, Britbox, and Hulu+.

    I learned much of what I know about good English studying Latin for two years in HS. I almost always scored a “C,” but for one semester when the teacher bumped me up to a “B” for the scale model of a Roman siege device I made and donated to her classroom. I built it from a photo of a museum model.

    I began downsizing when I retired. I told the kids to not buy me anything that will end up as part of my estate. I am becoming more ruthless about what I toss as I get older. I kept my LotR, math, Mark Twain, and Vonnegut books. I gave away most of my tools.

    Cycling clothes make a hard ride more comfortable. I no longer ride balance issues , but even after losing a bunch of weight, I think I would look like the Michelin Man in the spandex. The spandex will not lie.

    You’re supposed to read “Catcher In The Rye” in the eighth or ninth grade to be more like Holden Caulfield.
