My Dad’s name was Norris.. your name gave me a smile :)
Mama wanted me to be born on American Father’s Day. I refused and appeared on the 23rd. The nurses nicknamed me Bullet, because I shot out into the laundry bin… LOL!
I know that, I was talking about the ones marketed as “pets” back in the day :)
My father-in-law was raised to not have animals in the house. Shortly after I moved here, Mum’s chihuahuas were sleeping in an indoor soft kennel. Shortly after that, the outdoor cats were more indoor :) Then we were adopted by a black feral kitten who our niece tamed on a visit. Little stinker, he made up to Poppy so we could keep him :)
He still goes to “complain” to Poppy every morning when he’s the only one awake. Even if he has nothing to complain about! It’s hilarious to sneak in and hear those two talking away :) Pepper also adopted our foster pup, who also adores her Poppy. There are no longer any outdoor animals and indoor animals, they’re all indoors!
That’s why I liked having one of the basement bedrooms! Boyfriend would knock on my window, or I’d leave it cracked open so he could tell me he was there :) Sneak out the back door and back in later!
At one point I did share with my younger sister, but she was 5 years younger and I couldn’t take it. Our house was originally 3 bedrooms, with my parents in one, and Granny in the other. When Mama was expecting our brother, Daddy subdivided the basement into a bedroom, a laundry, and a workshop. The biggest of the four was variously a rec room and a bedroom :) I generally had the basement bedroom, and the younger two shared a room til the sister wanted her own, and she moved into the other basement room.
If only it were that easy..
My husband loves Snickerdoodles. I used to only bake them at Winter Solstice in America, now I bake them year round, and in many forms. I have one Pintrest board totally full of Snikerdoodle recipes :)
Damn, I just know he’ll want some even if he doesn’t know I typed that! LOL!
Where are the sea monkeys? I actually had a glass pendant (a small ball) that you could wear those in, in the early 70’s!
I love being able to be in contact with family and friends. I live in Australia, but everyone in my family is in America. And friends are all over the world
You and me both! Though to be fair, I had to have dental work done prior to my first knee replacement, including a root canal. I was terrified! Dentist was very nice, chatting away to me. When I asked when he’d start the root canal, he said “Already done!” Him, I liked :)
