That sounds like a real PITA, Andy. Good luck.

Kylie, we go to Aruba, where we have a timeshare, for two weeks every winter.

Taxlady, I try to plan ahead, so I have enough to keep me going until the new shipment arrives.

Just want to send out a group hug to all. I've been lawyering, paying bills, cleaning, and plan to get rid of the most extensive artificial flower collection I have EVAH seen! Dang! And the only Internet connection we have is my iPhone. Gah! I am down to one shred of hair!


Mom was a classy lady, but OMG, does she have stuff!

Yeah, my mum had a lot of stuff. I would never have believed that one person could have so much stuff to throw away. I spent a month on it in 2005, when she was alive and another two weeks on it in 2011. My sister had spent an extra couple of weeks on it between the time my mum died and the 2011 trip. Gah! is right. With my mum it was mostly papers, newspapers, and empty glass jars!

It's really hard but we do it so others don't have to.

Went to a retirement party at John Deere's today and took the tour of the plant. The one building was 1.8 miles long, holy mackeral. Thank goodness we were able to ride on some sort of a tram. Very interesting.

That mattress had the same effect on me. It felt like I was on fly paper & couldn't move, as I have always had a bad back. I know some people that have them & really love them though too.
