We stopped ours because they wanted us to go to our local gas station and pick it up. There were times the gas station sold all the Sunday papers before we even got there. I do miss that daily paper on the doorstep.
I’ve been through this same thing. My sisters dog got sprayed, then she came over to our house. After a few minutes visiting, I went to the store. While I was there, a young lad came up and told me I smelled like skunk. Sheesh.
Our home and native land.
My bride is the same way. I can tell her how beautiful she is, and she scoffs. The passing Meijer worker says they like her hair, and she’s on the moon for the rest of the day.
My bride will bring a blanket with her when she snuggles. In five minutes, she’s asleep.
Back in the fifties, my father named me the same first name as his father and grandfather. A year later, my sister was born and he named her the female derivation of his first name. A year later, they had another boy and he joked that he would name my brother the same as me. The nurse admonished him that he could not do that. Hence in our house, all five boys were named the same as him, and both girls were named the female version. Yes, it has been a bit confusing.
We were the same way in Phoenix AZ back in the early 70’s.
Sometimes the only good meal I got was lunch at school. My folks didn’t have a lot of money, so even peanut butter was good. Not complaining, just explaining. I’m super fat now, after having been able to afford whatever I like.
My favorite fishing is with no hook on the line to interrupt my nap…
