Now that I think of it – up to the age of 11.
I don’t know, but he sounds like he’s 8 years old. Boys used to pester the girls they “liked”.
I didn’t realize I was hitting your point. I was trying to say that our income and expenditures even out to the point that living in the U.S., at least for us, is comfortable. Guess we’re on the lucky side of the economy.
We also have joined NextDoor. It’s great for a lot of things, and if you don’t like a particular line of correspondence you can easily prevent it from appearing on your link. We’ve sold and given away items of no further use to us, have helped find lost dogs, and joined the group of people on the link who are giving treats to the kids at Halloween. It is indeed like having a good conversation with my neighbors as it’s hard for me due to an inconvenient crumby ankle.
Tabulations are being kept each and every time Trump obstructs justice – each time he says “no” to an investigation on executive privilege, etc.
My mother-in-law is like that. She’s 96 and still vain. Won’t even let her son visit, even to change a light bulb, unless she’s fully dressed and made up. Sheesh.
Linguist – I’m glad you are able to live so well in Ecuador on your budget. I live in California and have a monthly budget of $150/week for my husband and myself. This also covers food bought for dinners with friends, other items needed to run the household as well as an aged dog with special dietary needs, prescriptions, etc. We are lucky in that there are a lot of local farmers, so our produce and eggs are very reasonable.
This applies also to the various parts of the country. When my husband moved to Pasadena from New Jersey in 1970 he went into the local Safeway and was astonished at the variety and amount of fruits and vegetables. They probably bought from local farmers.
I find the comment “they’re not our kind of people” to be the most outrageous and disgusting comment. Sounds like what our President says when the mikes are off. He treats those less fortunate as a drain on the economy. Too bad, Jack; those who have should always share with those who don’t. It’s not communism or socialism, simply humanity.
You can’t resell makeup, like furniture or clothes. She really has very little left after those are gone.
