My problem as well-worked as a pediatric ICU nurse for 25+ years and still run into people who recognize me and I am clueless as to who they are. I usually respond by asking how the “family” is doing so I don’t inadvertently ask how their child (deceased) is doing. It is nice to be recognized and remembered but there is just one me and about 20,000 or so family members that I have met in my career.
At least she didn’t hand him the dish of nuts on the bar. (Great line from “The Women” 1939-watched it again this week on Turner Classic Movies).
I always like to curl up with a good book and a female companion, my just happens to be feline and is easily satisfied as long as she has constant attention. At least she doesn’t drink my beer or nag.

Everyone always seems to focus on the burning of fossil fuels. What about the deforestation occurring in the Amazon basin and other jungle areas to grow crops on marginal land. How much carbon filtering capacity have we lost through the destruction of the biosphere, not to mention the eradication of native species, erosion, and pollution of water resources. ?

Happy Natal Anniversary, I’ll hoist one for you today. I think Andy has enough in today’s strip that he won’t miss one or three.
Definitely the best, no kerosene flavor and it uses up newspaper instead of sending to the landfill. Added benefit is that it makes smoke and kills the mosquitoes off before you start grilling. Also recycle the charcoal after grilling by placing it in a reduced air environment-I use an old paint can (well cleaned before use) and steel pan cover to extinguish the coals for further use the next time I grill. Just add a few new pieces of charcoal to the bottom layer in the chimney and add the previously used remnants on top and they will reignite.
Try Indiana in the summer. Hot, muggy, tons of mosquitoes, with the only saving grace being that it isn’t winter with snow and below zero temps. Spring usually isn’t too bad but occasionally humid, autumn is wonderful and makes up for summer and winter.
Getting there, but I don’t need to buy Turtle Wax yet.
