   MeiDei  Oh gosh, this reminds me of my first dog, a peekapoo - her first litter she tried to bury a pup thinking it was an "accident".....she settled in and was a good mommy, but that first squeak from the pup startled her much.

   Wrightwinger posted on Nostalgia  I was talking to my Grandkids this evening about the old house where my grandparents lived. It was in the center of town, but they lived about the same as they did in the early years of the last century. There was a summer kitchen and a laundry room on one end of the old house. The laundry room was where she did laundry with an old wringer washer. Outside the door was a hand pump where she got the water for the machine. There were clothes lines stretching several directions where she hung her clothes. Below the house was a chicken house and yard, which was picked pretty clean most ov the time. We dug some great worms from there to fish with as a kid. Beside the chicken lot was a greenhouse dug into the ground with glass panes for a roof. My grandfather sold plants in the spring. Beside that was one garden area. He tended that even after he went blind, until he reached down and put his hand on a snake. Dad stretched strings for him to plant along. There wasn't much money and when the kitchen roof started to leak over the stove, they had no money for a new roof, and it solved the problem when my dad hung some gutter along where it leaked, and drained it into the kitchen sink. They did have an old bathroom with city water, and had the kitchen plumbed as well. I remember chickens sailing across the picket fence into the street, and one of the older men in town would catch it and put it back in the lot. They had a chamber pot upstairs for night time emergencies as it was a long way down the stairs and through the house to get to the bathroom. There was also a privy out back that was no longer in use. There were certain days for certain jobs. Laundry was an all day event. There was a daily trip to the chicken house to gather eggs, and scatter some chop for the birds. The yard was full of old, tart cherry trees. It was a neat place to grow up and visit. We were there almost every day as my dad was a barber in a part of my grandfathers garage, where he once worked on cars. My dad had divided it in half and used half for a pool room, in the rear, and a barber shop in the front. From there he could help his parents as they aged.

   Gerty  Mr.Wright--is there something I am misinterpreting in this chart?

For example: The question is "What is your state the WORST at? If Alaska is the worst at suicide, that means there are fewer cases of people offing themselves there. Yes?

It doesn't work the same for all states. Oh, my...I'm so con-foooosed!

   Wrightwinger  I think the idea is that these are bad things that are present in remarkable numbers in each state. I have no idea about the validity or the veracity of the information, and certainly don't think it means that some of these are in epic numbers. In WV we do tend toward heart disease and diet related problems as the number of family farms and gardens decline, and the food that is less expensive tends to be food that is also used to fatten cows.

   MeiDei  Just got a different pug/person photo via email this a.m. wish I could post pictures. These shirts are a thriving business in the UK & not inexpensive. Eye-boggling!

   Balogreene  The animal shirts can be found at themountain.com. I have a beautiful shirt with a Shih tzu, they get better looking with washing. They cost $20.00, but, I asked for mine as a gift.

   MeiDei  Thank you Balo - what a great website, found exactly what I would order for a certain relative - and $15 less than the site I mentioned. Their range of sizing is a plus - again thank you.

   Alice  Oh!! I am so thankful it turned out to be a tee shirt! My first glance told me it was a tattoo... Great shirts all around.

   Balogreene  20 some-odd years ago I gave my twin nephews a twinkie each. They were about 18 months at the time. Their mother was not happy, but, I am the AUNT. I don't think they had much in their mouths, but it was in their belly-buttons (and they had shirts and pants on ), and noses, and ears, and hair. It was oddly delicious, and they loved it and giggled for a long time as they ate. To me, that was all that mattered.

   Wrightwinger  I too have some memories of my elder daughter Becky's second birthday. She had a cake with creamy icing in front of her, and my brother asked her where her head, her nose, her ears, etc. were. With both hands all sticky, she showed him... It was funny, but my wife wasn't really amused as much as he was amused...
