Yikes, Marjie, that crusty old bat made me think of my mother-in-law....ugh. (and I'm pretty certain she DID spend her free time pulling wings off of flies when she wasn't terrorizing me). Safe travels home...look forward to hearing about your trip!

She likely started doing that in the cradle.

No one warns us about these hardships: The ongoing battle for a decent pot of tea, the absence of beloved dogs.

Looking forward to hearing more!

At least one of those things should be easier.

Thank you, Marjie. My daughters and granddaughters just got home from Portugal (destination wedding attendance), and I have appreciated your remarks while you were all away. They haven’t had much to say!
