    Most memorable New Years Eve

    Me too, Leslie. Have never liked New Year's Eve and have gone to only one N.Y.'s party, and once my ex actually gave a party, but there weren't many people and I knew them all well, so it wasn't too bad. I just find it far too depressing and prefer to be asleep by midnight, Another year gone, my birthday's coming up, and have to make the same resolutions I made last year and the year before. I vote we do away with New Year's Eve celebrations and instead go back to starting the year in the spring, when at least you can celebrate the coming of nice weather.:)

    An Aussie Night Before Christmas

    Oh, Grace, I love it! Is it as famous in Oz as our version is in the States? Thanks so much for sharing it. Gotta send a copy to my dd and her bf - they'll get a real kick out of it. I'm sitting here with the fireplace on, Christmas tree twinkling, carols playing and I'm enjoying a beer. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Grace. Love ya :Ball:

    What would you like Santa to bring you?

    Awww, that's so nice of you, sanctuary! He's been gone a month now but I just keep hoping we'll find him safe and sound soon. Miss him sooooo much.:o

    What would you like Santa to bring you?

    A little cabin, tucked in the trees, up the McKenzie River. All paid for, of course. Oh, and Santa, can you find my lost doggie too, please!

    Would you buy the ring.

    Just my opinion, you understand, but I think he's already given you his answer. The excuse about being traumatized by a girlfriend years ago just doesn't wash anymore. No ultimatums. I think you just need to sit down and decide if you really want marriage and legal babies so badly you are willing to leave Marc in an attempt to find someone who agrees with that choice. If you truly don't want to leave him, then I'd suggest you get used to living single, with all the insecurities that presents, and deciding if you want to bring children into the relationship as it is. You don't mention how he feels about having kids... Yes, the divorce rate may be 62% but the action of gettting married - telling each other, family, friends, the world, that you are committed to another person and willing to give up the option of taking off whenever you may get the itch, says a lot about a person. Why would one be so opposed to marriage if they didn't have even a tiny spot in the back of their mind where they know they can walk out at any time without consequences? And, IMHO, do not buy yourself a ring. Unless its a diamond cocktail type ring worn on your right hand. It would simply look too desperate and tacky - and you don't want to look desperate, even if you are. If it were me, I'd print this thread out and give it to him, letting him know that you need to know if he ever does plan to marry you. You deserve to know that much anyway. Good luck! :icon_hug:

    Gee My Hair Smells Terrific

    All I remember were guys selling encyclopedias. Somehow I don't think Welcome Wagon came to the Bronx. :rolleyes: And I was one of those Girl Scouts going door to door selling cookies. Seems like we were always going door to door selling stuff or trying to collect money. The Catholic school I went to was always sending us out to try to get money. My father used to take the stuff to work cause he didn't want me going door to door. And boy was he pissed about it too. Before I was old enough to join the Girl Scouts I belonged to P.A.L - the Police Athletic League. Don't remember a bloody thing about it though.

    How long will you live? Check it out...

    Well, they predict I'll live to be 83. What does the elective cosmetic surgery question have to do with anything? Also, I had a grandfather die of T.B. and a grandmother die of pernecious anemia when they were young. Now these are curable. So does that add years to my life???

    Could be. I've never heard of Marlite. When I first read your post I thought you said 'Marmite' - that spread the Brits all seem so crazy about. Must be late. Better get to bed when you imagine that kind of stuff! Maybe someone else will know if Marlite is what I'm talking about.

    No, no....not contact paper. I remember in LPN school in '71 we used the contact paper that had that huge ugly 'flower power' design to cover everything. Dresser tops, books, desks, you name it! Can just picture your orange mushroom kitchen. Did you have orange shag carpet too? And avacado green appliances, or harvest gold? Actually, as a child I remember small refrigerators that came in pale pink. I think they also came in other pastel colors. But the stuff I mean actually looked, and felt like linoleum, but on the walls instead of the floor.

    Gee My Hair Smells Terrific

    I remember the 5 & 10 cent stores well. My first job (at 16) was in Woolworth's. I worked at the candy counter and we were not allowed to stand still. Always had to be polishing the glass if no customers. And the area where the paper sacks we put the candy in was infested with cockroaches. No doubt the reason I only worked there 2 days. I also remember the guy who had a rather large cart, pulled by a pony. He sharpened knives and came by once a week. You'd here the bell ringing on his pony and run out with your knives that needed sharpening. Also had fruit and vegetable carts that were the same way. Do y'all remember the guy with the pony who would come by so people could put their kids on the pony and the guy would take a picture. That was a big deal to us. The bus fare was 15 (OMG, didn't typewriters used to have the 'cent' sign on them? I just went looking for it and its not on the keyboard.) Maybe no one uses cents any more. Now everything is $$$. Anyway, when you got on the bus with a dollar or more the bus driver would make change with that metal change holder. Can you imagine them doing that now? When paint used to smell so bad you'd have to stay out of your house for at least a week, leaving all the windows open, before it was fit to live in. Anyone remember that stuff that was just like linoleum but you put it on the lower half of your kitchen walls. Was made to look like tile and the idea was that when the grease splattered it would be easier to clean up than painted or wallpapered walls. My dad put it up and it was sooooo tacky looking. I remember when everyone was scandalized by Eddie Fisher leaving Debbie Reynolds to marry Elizabeth Taylor, and how popular Debbie's song 'Tammy' was. Seems after that every other baby girl born was named Tammy. I thought the song was too sappy for words, but what do kids know, huh?

    Do any of you believe in animal communicators?

    Thanks for the tip about checking the vet's offices, Dale. Sure hope I find him. :paw: The Animal Regulations folks called today to see if I'd found him, so they know whether to keep the 'lost dog' notice up. At least I know they're still looking too.

    Do any of you believe in animal communicators?

    Well, sounds like the general concensus is a 'no' to animal communicators. Which is how I feel, but always good to get others opinions, no? Mary Ann, funny how I always thought dogs have excellent ability to find their way, but Fowjee never ventured more than a block from me, and when we went to the dog park it was by truck cause its ~10 miles away. So he'd be totally lost just a few blocks away. Unlike Bronte, who is prone to taking off for 15 minutes or so, whenever she can. Then home she comes. Obviously they didn't stay together that night. Angie, I almost didn't recognize you with a different avatar! Thanks for you opinion and prayers are always welcomed. Don, thanks so much for your prayers also. I'm kinda losing hope of finding him being its been 3 1/2 weeks, but still praying. Helpless feeling, KWIM?
