Haha! Cathy is almost puzzled that she would have to walk. xD And then the panel that isn’t shown at the end is where Cathy buys the boots and tells Irving they need to get a horse.
Hello Cathy friends! Happy Wednesday! Have a great day, all!
I’ve already said that the term American can refer to both the people who live in the country of USA and the people who live in the continent of North or South America (or the Americas). What I think is ridiculous is the idea that there needs to be a separate name for people who live in the US, other than Americans. Yes, it is entirely reasonable to use that name for one country AND people in a continent. If people can’t handle that, too bad. No one can turn back time and change the naming of the USA to something more different. The USA is the first country in the hemisphere to become independent, and it was named for a reason. It was not the most creative naming, but the founding fathers wanted to make a point and be clear that the country was part of America and not of Europe. The rest of your post is only proving what I’ve already said but you obviously don’t understand that. We’ll just have to agree to disagree. I’ve asked people from countries all over the western hemisphere and none of them are upset that people from the USA are called Americans. They are fine with understanding the concept that people from the USA are Americans and they are Americans also. It’s all used in context. If you want to be the few who has to have a “unique” name for people who are from the USA, then go wild if that makes you feel better. And you were joking?… it sure didn’t come across that way. Interesting sense of humor you have.
Yet we see her wearing the same shoes every day. I’ve learned to buy only what I will wear and I usually only wear black shoes, so that saves some money and closet space.
Hello Cathy friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope our Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving day! Have a nice day, all!
“United Statesians” is a stupid term. The Spaniards use the Spanish version of that and it’s ridiculous. People from the United States of America are Americans the same way people from Canada can be Americans. Just because the name of the country and the name of the continent has a word in common doesn’t mean it can’t be used for multiple labels. The country of Mexico’s full name is “Estados Unidos Mexicanos”, but they are called Mexicans, not Estadounidenses.
Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends!
And here is when Mabel earns every penny of the commissions Cathy has paid for over the years of overshopping. As usual, Cathy is Cleopatra, Queen of De-nial.
Hello Cathy friends! Happy Monday! I hope you have a great day!
Happy Anniversary, lindz.coop and Mr. lindz.coop!! I hope you had a lovely day together and many more years together!
Sounds a bit like foot binding… not interested!
Hello Cathy friends! Happy Friday! Have a great weekend, all!
Your comment about Disney princesses made me remember Lil’s first broken bone(s). She’s my girly girl so we had one Cinderella outfit that she could dress up in (might have been a gift). One day when I was cleaning up from dinner, she put on the Cinderella shoes and went upstairs in them. The curve of the stairs and heels was too much for her 3-year-old coordination (or lack thereof) and she fell, landing on her arm. Of course she cried, but we didn’t figure out until a few days later that she broke both her radius and ulna. She ended up getting a cast up to her shoulder and then an elbow cast after that. I felt so bad, but I had no idea she was going to put those shoes on bc they were not a part of daily play. They went away after that. She still likes dressing up though. :-)
Glad to hear you had a good trip! Welcome back and hope you rest up soon!
Exactly. This is why I stopped wearing heels years ago (I’m clumsy and it was too risky to go faster than a slow amble). However, when I did wear them, it was fun to be extra tall and I even intimidated a guy who was 6’4" and unused to a woman being his height. He was a bit insecure I think bc he told me I should stop wearing them bc women shouldn’t be taller than men. :-)
