    Vintage Things That Have Disappeared In Your Lifetime?

    My wife just did a fix-it job on a bathroom door using toothpicks in a similar manner. Evidently a carpenter friend of mine had given her that tip years ago.

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    We moved to a new state (in our sixties) and had to take a "written" (not behind- the- wheel) test to get our new licenses. I placed written in quotes because it's all computerized. The key to passing is knowing that you only need so many correct questions to pass. You skip the ones you can't...

    Loungers' Pets

    Casey was given to us by my sister. She came up with a story about how she was going to move into a condo that prohibited pets and was looking to strangers at a family member's party to take him. We stepped up and the rest is history. When we took him home, we found that he had ear mites, a...

    Loungers' Pets

    We've had to bid farewell to our two Pugs within two years: Chloe (the larger and older one) and Calvin. They developed spinal problems that not only impaired their mobility but also assured household messes. When a bad situation like that arises and there is no realistic likelihood that it's...

    Sorry for your loss. I know how much you loved her.

    Van Page Brown @HoosierDaddy, In Memoriam

    One of the genuinely good ones. He will be missed. Sincere condolences to his family.

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Sold my Civic w/ 5 speed manual before we moved in 2019 and I really miss shifting. Especially on those rare (out here) ice and snow days. I have more control with a manual when things are slippery.

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Hydrate, son. Best way to fight it. And steer clear of any "hair of the dog" inclinations. That'll only defeat the purpose of drinking water.

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    Catholic parochial schools exposed me to the Ginn & Co. "Faith and Freedom" series. The unabashed attempts at indoctrination were obvious: one I remember in particular were in a story about a French colonial girl that was always referencing the "savage Iroquois." Later realized that this had...

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    When we moved from the Midwest to the PNW three years ago I trimmed my library considerably. Almost 2/3 of it ended up at Goodwill, likely before ending up in a landfill. Most of what got ditched were old textbooks, casebooks, hornbooks and law reporter sets. Either outdated or case opinions...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    A tough call, but I'd say that if there ever was a "Wise Beyond Their Years" contest between Annie and Kayo, the younger Kayo would give Annie a run for her money. Kayo, in my opinion, is allowed the luxury of actually being a kid more than Annie. It isn't much of a home- but he has a home...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Shadow himself seems to be relegated to Sunday gag lines. Not sure that he's capable of much beyond comic relief in the grand scheme, but it actually might be funnier watching him go through Army basic training than Harold. His lack of impulse control could be a drill sergeant's dream/ nightmare.

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Seems like we go for many months without any update on Lillums (or her battle axe mom, Lena). In the meantime, for some reason Harold always draws these drop- dead gorgeous women. Him getting a 1-A notice would be, as previously noted, such a delicious turn of fate.

    When I grow up I'm going to be a.....................

    Since I knew at an early age that I could never grow up to become a steam locomotive engineer, the default wish was to become a trial lawyer. I was four, I think, the first time that my grandfather took me to court to watch a trial. (Had he applied himself I have no doubt that he could have...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Annie must be an embryonic incarnation of one of those "School of Hard Knocks, University of Life" types we hear so much about.

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Situation Hopeless But Not Serious when Shadow Smart is the voice of reason in the room. Especially regarding relationships with women.
