Fabric softener will fix that. And extra dose if necessary. For Shrek silly, not the quilt.

LOL! I've washed it twice now with extra fabric softener, he's still not happy with it. I have it bundled up nicely in the closet. I will get some use of it, sooner or later.

I have been attempting to sign up for Facebook at the request of some younger family members. What a pain! It thinks I am someone in a distant foreign land! I guess I am too old to understand these things. I think I will just fuhgettaboutit!

Sounds like a good idea. Facebook is a massive invasion of privacy, most of which is hard to know about.

When you join Facebook, you aren't the consumer, you and your personal info are the product (what Facebook sells to advertisers).

Eating too much is mandatory at Chinese Buffets. You did what you were supposed to do.

Hockey playoffs started tonight. I usually watch for a week or two until the weather gets nice, or the Canadian teams all get beat out. Whatever comes first.

I would hang in there if I were you. My mom is 77 and she enjoys keeping in touch with all of us. There are three generations all connected. She plays games, enters contests and messages her kids and grand kids. She still hasn't figured it all out yet, but enough to go on and check every night for a couple of minutes to catch up on the days events.....there are lots of privacy concerns about facebook, but, I honestly have never had a problem, nor do I know anybody who has ever had a problem because of their association with facebook. I think it is in their best intrest to keep things secure, because if there were any kind of scandal, they would lose millions of members emmediately...

But, of course, that is all up to you.

Thanks for the support, I am feeling pretty guilty about it but you make me feel better.

My inlaws are amazing, they're in their 80s and keep up at a minimal way on FB.
