    Doesn't help at all. It is cold and rainy and here everybody has started to preper for Christmas. People are starting more and more early and without family, the Christmas week is shit.

      Yep, I live by myself in a big empty house. I have to pay someone to mow my grass. I know what you mean, WFE, my friend, Bente, I sometimes don't get out of bed and I'm lonesome. I just went through the Hurricane Ike and lost all my food. It sucks. But I feel fortunate because I was only out of electricity for two days.
      My only daughter lives in Florida and my son lives here and he is more trouble than anything. Being 51 yrs old don't help.
      But I won't give up and I won't give in to any of it. I'm going to get a dog.

        It helps with an animal in the house. But today the small cat has destroyed the foot when I was at the PT. And the vet can't come to my house because she has destroyed her foot too and she is the only vet in Oslo making homecalls.

          One more for ya Obie. My favorite Burton solo song. A slightly younger (okay, a whole lot lol) version of him than the last video But I don't think he has really changed much. I might have a crush on him too, I admit.

          (I couldn't sleep last night and spent most of it watching Guess Who/BTO videos on you tube)

          I think, though, he's lip syncing here because it's the studio version of the song and all I see in the video is him and his piano

          I hope your week gets better.

              It's better already since Burt came to visit ..... thanks OJ !!

              I've been thinking alot about the people dealing with the aftermath of those hurricanes and I realize life could be alot worse for many of us and already is ..... so "onward and upward" as Chris would say. Stay strong everyone!

                Why don't we get a regular online chat session going. Pick a day/time of the week, or bi-weekly (keeping in mind time zones n all) we can meet for a gab session, best we can via the web. Sort of an online coffee clotch where we can vent, moan & laugh while supporting and uplifting each other. Any of you gals game?

                  oy, I can't believe your talking winter already. I'm not ready for winter yet. The cold, the snow, the dark evenings. Blah!

                  Think fun fall days. Pumpkins, scarecrows, hot apple pie, pumpkin bread, beautiful leaves. Okay I'm in my happy place again. Is there anywhere I could live where the season goes right from fall to spring? Well, maybe winter until New years but that's it!!!!

                  I love the idea of an online chat time, I'm game!

                          I feel what you're feeling at times, too, Obieone. If I look at my life as though this is how it will be for the duration, I can want to scream, "Let me off this ride. It's not what I bargained for ..."

                          I cannot know this is how it is. Life may be better. It may be worse. It will almost always be a surprise.

                          What helps me is to look at the remainder of my life in terms of right this moment, right now. It seems easier to deal in smaller increments than in viewing this free floating amoeba thing in its entirety. I can get overwhelmed otherwise.

                          Sorry you're feeling the angst. I hope you find solace to see you through.

                          Maybe I should reflect back the light you always give to others, including me. It's okay to take some of that for yourself, too. It really is.
                          Good post Mem. I think we look at life the same way.

                          Hang in there Obie

                              That's okay cass it bears repeating !


                              I think that it would be fabulous if we could hook up somehow on a regular basis .... or at least try.
                              There is the time factor to consider so people like Bente can participate ... so how do we work this??? ... do we just say "Sat night at 10 meet you in chat???" .... I haven't been there in some time can we set up our own room???

                              Would it work if I made a "Come Let's Chat" thread a sticky ... that way if anyone is in a mood to visit we post there with a shout out for others to join in and we can just do it as the spirit moves us ?????? or do we want to make it a set time????

                                Bente I think you are remembering the group private pm thing we did a few years back .... actually that's quite a few years back if we are both thinking about the same thing !! Yes that was good ..... but like most things it can hard to keep up the commitment .... no reason not to try again though!!
