Thanks to all for the advice but I don't feel real comfortable being in a wheelchair or having a handicap tag. When i was 17 years old I was thrown from a horse on Easter sunday. I broke my lower back & was paralyzed for about 18 months. While in a wheelchair I had some painful rehab. with physical therapy. In the small town I grew up in there was'nt alot of resources in the 70's. I just don't feel good about going back to that.

I'm so sorry to read that. I'll bet that cat had a good life with you. My condolences.

How nice! I bet she will love it!! I hope you're doing okay, babe.


I woke up with a sneezing attack, and here I sit. If I can't sleep in an hour, I'm going to watch an episode of the Waltons I recorded. Yes, I love that show! It's a lot better than some of the crap that's on tv right now.

The Walton's is on for three hours a day here on a cable channel, followed by Little House On the Prairie (one of my favorites) every weekday afternoon.

G'night Johnboy or they would have said G'night 'Nilla'Bean in your case.

We must have the same channel. It's on the Hallmark channel, here.

I'm very out of touch with young people these days. I wonder if these kinder, gentler shows are watched by the kids who would benefit most from the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) messages. And I'd add the Andy Griffith shows.

And the Carol Burnett Show. Subtlety is lost on the youth.

But, but, but.....I can't do Lawrence Welk....I'm sorry.
