Now all I have to worry about is the weather. I-80 between Clearfield and Clarion can get dicey at times. Good thing Sally has new "shoes" on her drive wheels.
I love her humor also. She just slips those zingers in there.

Glad kitty will have a kitty sitter. Just have a great Christmas with the kiddies.

Time for my meds.

Addie, I am very surprised to hear that you smoke, since you are always promoting healthy eating.

These are songs I love.

I like those songs, too, Mamma Cat. I'm surprised that Cat knows them. They are from before she was born!

Retro is in and the classics will always be great! I was shocked that my cousin's daughter - about 12 at the time - knew all the words to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

I do eat healthy. But I have also been smoking since I was ten years old. Why quit now? So I can live longer? How long do you want me to live? 'Til I am on life support? My job is done. My kids are grown and successful. I don't want to spend my last days cleaning. I enjoy smoking.

How tall did you say you were?

CG, part of I-80 was closed yesterday due to the weather. Here's hoping for a clear spell.

Thanks pac, I sure hope so too. We had a rough time coming back one Thanksgiving, but that stretch of road now has those de-icing sprayers along the roadside. As long as all the weather apps I follow say it won't be bad we'll head out.

I've been busy going through our too-many possessions over the last few months and have run across blankets and a quilt our daughter can put to use. If something does happen, heaven forbid, at least we'll have enough covers to bundle with.

4"8". I used to be 4'9.5" but have shrunk with old age. So tell your kids, smoking does stunt your growth. My grandparents on my father's side were very short also, as are most eastern Native American tribes.
