    As some of you know, OldMan has a younger brother. 8 years ago we invited him to live with us, get a job, get on his feet, break away from the problems he had in Memphis. End result. I kicked him out. He got a job, I told him to give me $75 per check towards "room & board". What he didn't know...

  10. Simple Living
    I have been reading a number of books about simple living, and one of them recommends starting each day with a clear plan of what you hope to accomplish, so you don't end up frittering the day away. My plan for today is to check on my goat, Samson, and give him his meds. Then I need to clean...
  11. Financial hardship
    When hubby was hired by his company 5 or so years ago, one of his 'perks' was fully paid health ins. for our whole family.

  12. What did you get free?
    I got 4 stackable fabric boxes! Perfect for my utility room or my sewing room. They were on the side of the road, upon inquiring with the owner at the home they were in front of, they just didn't "work" for her-so she threw them to the curb. I am in constant amazement of waste!

    I mentioned that we were taking a big vacation this year, and I wasn't kidding. We're driving from here (Southern California) to my parents' house in The Florida Keys.
