Now it's one of my favorites but Curlie is the one who convinced
me to read it in the first place.
Same goes for, Water for Elephants~~he bought it thinking I'd
like it, told him probably not, he read it and couldn't put it
down. Soooooo, I read it and loved it!!!
Just the title alone scared me off, but I devoured it, too!
Did you ever read Snowflower and the Secret Fan? That's another good one.

I think it was a misunderstanding due to the frustration that's felt when the same OLD same
OLD redundant stuff is brought here.
How can a thread that's titled:

Have anything to fight about?
Well, anyway, TGIF and a sunny week-end...
Me too, Ruby! Thank you!! We old and boring fogies need to stick together!

I read that Idaho is one of the least expensive states to live in, but Montana was one of the most expensive. Kind of surprised to hear that.
Good morning, Richard.

Afternoon Ms Ruby. Hope all is well out your way.
I echo your hopes that all can feel comfortable posting here. My hopes are that those that have left will come back. I've stayed this long myself because of them and a few others that regularly post here. Ms Hegel made this thread for the express purpose of having a peaceful place where the exchange of useful and interesting ideas could be put forth. I just a shame that out of the thousands of threads that have been made for the sole purpose of fighting, that it has to be brought here.
Well said, Richard.

Hello stranger!



It seems like a mighty long time.

On the garden front: peppers are beginning to arrive and the squash is looking promising. A little early to know how the tomatoes will fare. However if last year was any indication, there will be more than enough to gift our neighbors.

Good morning, Richard.
Many believe (wrongly of course) that since we have 'no' state sales tax, that it is cheaper to live here. The only truth to that though, is that there is no state sales tax (showing) on the receipt. The seller pays the tax when buying his products. He then raises the price he sells it for in order to recoup his initial outlay of funds. Then (of course) he ups that price because, naturally, he is going to need to make a profit on his profit. Where a 20oz soda in Cali might cost you $1.79, you might have to pay $2.09 for that same bottle here. And don't even get me started on property taxes, conservation taxes, water allotments, utility taxes (of which we're not even hooked up too) and on and on I could go. But even with all that, you couldn't get me to live anywhere else. When I can get up in the mornings and go out to the deck and see a bear teaching her cubs to fish in the river, or hear and see bull elk bugling for a mate in the meadow, or walk out and catch a couple trout for dinner, why would I complain about a few extra dollars? Some may not understand why anyone would prefer this over the cities but, on the other hand, I don't see why they prefer the smog, noise, crime and loss of privacy in those same cities. Heck, we don't even have curtains on our windows. Why should we? It's not like the animals are going to look in and judge us for walking around in the buff. A little extra in taxes doesn't matter. Especially if those taxes are going to better the state. No.......I'll stay right here. I have a picture I'll send you thru a PM if you'd like. A warning first though. When you see it, you might try to sell everything you own and start shopping for a place up here to move to. But you wouldn't be the first.:)

And a very good morning to you Ms Junket. It has been a while hasn't it. It's nice to see you here again.
Am looking forward to reading any new and useful uses for the veggies from the garden growers this year. Tried a few of them last year and was pleased with many of those. Do you ever grow broccoli or cauliflower? Most of what we grow is done in a hot house. Veggies don't do well when the temps get below freezing.:)

It's a wonder that we've lasted as long as we have, considering our unwavering commitment to trying to dominate one another. This insane thought process of, "I'm better than you" will, in time, be our downfall. The scary part of all this is, many know it but don't see it as a problem.

We might also have cucumbers this year. Depends on what gets into the garden to nibble. The sole broccoli was eaten, we believe, by a baby bunny. The netting can only provide so much protection and where there's a will there's usually a way.

Have a good weekend, Mr. Barlow. I will endeavor to do likewise. My list includes (but is not limited) to floor cleaning. Found out that the Shark Steam Mop really does not like tap water. At all. My "friend" in India(?) suggested I return - cost would be approx. half of purchase price. Bought a new one instead and so far it's not unhappy with distilled water. Fingers crossed.

Well, that's all well and good but, why don't you people in Montana SAVE the money you would pay in socialist taxes and build your own roads, preferably with slave labor, as the founders so clearly intended? Honestly, there is no good reason 315 million people in this country can't live the way you describe. Do you have a problem with lazy poor people foraging for berries in your area or are they (hopefully) eaten by those bears?

There's nothing better than loving the place where
you live and thrive.

I have a friend who finally got her dream, living
in the New Mexico desert.
She loves it and seems to be cut-out for that
particular lifestyle.

I guess someone much smarter than myself is going to have to explain this one to me.

How the hell can you shoot and kill someone that is running away from you and then be found not guilty by reason of 'self defense'? If the other person isn't armed and is running away, would'nt that make the shooter the "aggressor"? And since when does wearing a hoodie make one "suspicious"? Especially if one is wearing it when it's raining? I own half a dozen of them, and I dare that sawed off wannabe to flex up at me. I could see just about any other reason to find him not guilty of murder, but "self defense"? Not in this lifetime.

Hope this fine morning finds you well.
No canes for this old geezer. When the time comes, it'll be full throttle thru the crowd on my hoveround. The only reason I'd be holding a cane, would be to swing at those pesky youngns that are out of arms reach.:)
Enjoy your day.
