I am 78 now and still don’t feel old.
Unless I am asleep, I have started. I go all day long. Sleeping recharges my batteries. However, I hardly talk at all. I will talk, but only when spoken to.
I bet it was awful. My son used to have a phone number that was one digit different from a pizza parlor. He would get calls in the middle of the night with folks trying to order a pizza. They all sounded drunk to him. After the first few times, he just pretended that he took the order and then hung up. After a couple of months, he changed his number and finally got a good night’s sleep.
I used to have a phone number one digit different from a lawn service. People would call me and ask for some lawn service. I would tell them that they had a wrong number and give them the correct one. It is amazing how often they still ended up calling me.
The first one I ever tasted was a Pamplemuse. That was in Germany and just one was shared by 5 people. We were quite poor and could not afford more than the one. I thought it was delicious,
I remember it every time I eat potato chips out of the bag. And they were right! Well, at least I can’t eat just one.
I have a fenced in backyard and I always walked my dogs. Twice each day, for exercise. The only time any of my dogs were left in the backyard was when it was too nasty to go out for me. In those times, the dogs would hurry up and do their business and come right back in. They did not like to be out in the rain either. If it was just cold, we would still go for our walks. As for the snow, they all loved to sun themselves up on the snow. Sometimes for as long as 1/2 hour. When they came inside, they would find someplace warm, like in front of the refrigerator or near a heat duct.
I think you underestimate the amount of potholes, but I get the idea (land of 10,000 lakes). I think there are at least 10,000 potholes just in my town, but I live in Wisconsin, so maybe we are worse.
Cats are carnivorous, basically “meat only” animals, whereas dogs are omnivorous. Therefore, dogs will eat cat food. The problem with labs is they don’t differentiate between good food and stuff like rabbit poop and the like.
My daughter did eventually learn responsibility. However, it took until she was married with children of her own. At least she got some payback.
