Could it be that someone thinks we are all old geezers here because we have morals, and manners, and all those other "old fashioned" things many people today have given up??
Just got through making the last payment on our car today.Now we are going to save that payment until our good old car dies.Hopefully by that time we will be able to buy a new one.
Even though I grew up in a upper middle class neighborhood, my parents only bought us what we needed, not what we wanted. It sure helped me as I got older.
When someone asks you to pray for them, they are not whining or dragging you down with them. They are simply asking for your support during a difficult time in their lives. Have some compassion, dude.
My youngest of four graduated with her Masters in December. Been paying tuition nonstop since 96. Four kids and five degrees!! I just got a raise. Life continues to be good.
My dogs make me smile everytime I walk in to the house.
Do you know how kids spell love?TIME,spend it with them.
Excuse me, but when a person ask for prayers for themself or others, I do not view it as them bringing me down. I see it as a way to lift them up.
My grandfather was a simple, hard working man. His advice to me when I was a teenager was " to get a job and stick with it".
25+ years for my Honda almost 300k on the odometer.
Yes, my Mama used to tell me that all the time. "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all". I wish I could hear that from her just one more time.
It is fun to go back and read the Unvents again from months ago. Some relevant, some just funny, and some about news that has already been forgotten.
My thoughts are with the Halstead family today. I know poor little Tripp is going through another rough patch. The strength that family has is absolutely amazing. Stacy and Bill - you are the rockstars !!
I can remember when we decided to have cell phone use only.We were considered horrible from both sides of the family because we didn't have a landline.I just saved the extra money that we were paying AT&T and use it for vacations only.
Your daughter may be missing out for not talking to your granddaughter,but the important thing is, she has you.
Who made you boss of the rules of the Unvent?? I see you were voted down pretty good, so get off your high horse.
My wife and I have a small reminder in a place where we see it many times each day. "The Best Things In Life Are Not Things"
I watched the big dog show where the little dog won and it was great. P.S. I see winning dogs every day just walking around and they just love attention too.
I have two nieces who are adults now. They both said, I was a lot easier to talk to than their moms. I always made sure, I was there to listen,never judge, and give advice, if I felt they were making decisions that might get them in trouble.
I read that when ever you are alone, you're not, you can always talk to Jesus.
The Monday Unvent has a 3 way tie at 78 votes each as I write this. Let's vote again and break that tie.
Here in the unvent yes we pray for our unvent family. Maybe you would be more comfortable in the vent section.
You snow lovers need to move up north.
Since my Husband has retired the only time I have to myself is from 11 PM and 3 AM and it's heavenly.Don't get me wrong I love my Husband but I like to watch chick flicks and different things he doesn't like.I have everything ready for breakfast before I go to bed so he doesn't mind.
