For help on how to follow a comic title,
Based on what went on with my 90 yo mother this week – that’s when the brain starts to melt.
I thought I posted – I collect bears – stuffed, figurines, toys, coal, glass and so on. I actually have a stuffed bear – a young boy cub – named Waldo. He hates his name as all the other bears keeping yelling “Where’s Waldo?” He prefers to be called Wally.
As I recall he sold it as he did not think that they should work as hard it took to deal with. He gave them a portion of the money he received as I recall.
It tends to be more a problem with textures.
Forgot the bench/step we made when I was 4 – he designed it – I needed it to reach the bathroom sink on my own – turn it over and it was a doll bed. (Not sure the latter was intended.)
We got a phone call at 4 am the other night just as we were going to bed. Boy, do I wish it was a robocall as husband thought it was. It was the police. My mom called them because “her neighbors were talking about killing her”. So we ended up spending the rest of the night at the hospital and my sister came in the am to take over. Mom is a medication – and trying to go home from sister’s house before med is working. Really, really wish it had been a robocall.
As posted below to vaghlr2004 – Now I can only play it on my computer. Husband is not a board game player. I still use a DOS version I have as I don’t like the newer versions. Now that I have a Win 10 I am hoping it will work with it – it does work with Win 7 desktop. If it doesn’t work, husband is going to put in a virtual XP machine (as he did on my Win 7) for me anyway – it was the only way he could get me to upgrade. I will not give up Lotus Organizer!!
Did so – up to the Postmaster General when I did not hear back from local postmaster. Solution was all mail would be delivered in sealed envelope for 2 weeks to see what happens. It was done so for 2 days. Then unsealed envelope for one day. Then nothing done – and we don’t understand the idea of delivering in a sealed envelope as mail could not have been put into same – we think this is a problem on the sorting level – and it does not help with the mail delivered for places so far away in the community that we have lived here 40 years and husband for 60 years and we have never heard of the streets in question.
Best solution was to switch as much mail as possible to the PO box – which is at a different post office. Due to the post offices being done by zip code/communities and living 4 houses from the northern border of the post office area, we actually have 2 post offices – unrelated and for different communities – closer to us than our post office. One is within easy walking distance and the other one (where we have our PO Box) is in extended walking distance (and we did walk there and back, climbing over tree branches and such after Hurricane Sandy).
Last time we had the mail held because we were on a trip, we went in afterwards to pick up the accumulated mail and restart delivery. A day goes past – no mail, 2 days go past – no mail. Husband says to – we probably did not have any mail. When it hit a week with no mail he let me call – they had not restarted delivery! We now have a locking mail box so that we when we go away (normally for 3 days, week at the most) we do not have to have the mail held – especially since this is only what is delivered here and not to our PO Box.
We have lived here for over 30 years – no problems, all was great, until about 5-6 years ago when it went bad quickly.
When my 90 year old mom started hearing voices talking to her, first question was if she had a Alexa or something similar as people are picking up neighbors similar devices on theirs. Sadly, that was not the case with mom.
They are rather overpriced and some departments look like junk stores.
