Scaling back + being nice.

My daughter has been a homeowner for 2 yrs now. When she has typical problems in her house I’m now shrugging an saying, “oh dear, Well, you’ll figure it out” as I edge towards the door an head home. Instead of taking care of it myself.

On another matter I was very sad about this.

3 of us women were helping a 90 yr old man. He looked at us and said, “are you Christians?” I replied yes. He said, “you’re nicer to me than the people out there (pointing to window)”...

For a second I thought I might have a $200 turkey. Busy, rushed to store for the turkey breast they held for me. I'm very law abiding.

Since my daughter bought her house 1.5 yrs ago the next door neighbor's laundry washer drains onto her yard. Very near her house.

Several months ago I saw the man an asked him to come over an look at standing water. He said he'd fix it.

Last week my daughter discovered the water caused a hole 12x18" wide an 8-16" deep on her property. She told the wife about it. My daughter deals with the public, is friendly, professional and well liked.

I like taking stairs instead of elevator for exercise.

Few days ago I was in a famous (or well known) building. I was on the 3rd floor and needed 7th floor so I headed to stairwell.

After only one flight the stairs ended abruptly. With no choice except turning around an going back down, I exited the "unmarked" ( I stress word 'unmarked'" door.

Suddenly I was in a hall...

Wanted to write more but I keep crying. I can't say anything that hasn't been said.

I'm so happy about the Medal of Heroism those 3 young boys received. Certain sentences bring on the tears. "He wore the medal pinned to his chest when he was buried"

Can I mention guns on a blog?

I'm from a family of hunters and gun dealers.

No one needs assault rifles.
