One of the many critters that lives on the hill behind our building is a skunk. He knows us so if he comes out at the same time my husband leaves for work at night there isn’t a problem.
Our church posts the words on a screen. No excuse there. (My daughter & I sing harmonies during worship.)
Not if you find the right person. My husband & I don’t nag each other, and we’ve been married for almost 33 years. Marriage with the right person is wonderful.
If I were Elly, I would have done one of 2 things: 1) go out & join them in the fun; or 2) leave them be to have some bonding time. I would NOT have done 3) get ticked off over a bit of dirt. Believe me, I wish we had a yard so that my husband & girls COULD do something like this.
When I was a kid of about 8 or 9 I got a kit to make a clay Charlie Brown. It was a foam “waffle” mold where you filled in the squares with the corresponding color & was almost 2 feet tall…and came with an oversized baseball cap!
I remember in 5th grade I was asked by the principal to be the “buddy” of a new girl from southern California. She was tall, blonde, and beautiful. It was great until the popular girls got to her. She stopped hanging with me, but at least she would still say “hi” to me in the hall, even though they told her not to.
@drmickeyg – I am 5’ also, and have a Marksman medal.
I was one of the shortest kids in my class, but I ROCKED at hurdles. It was one of the few things I was actually good at in gym.
