It's called the "Doctor 1000 line" it's loud, clashes with all outfits and fits poorly. And is guaranteed to piss you off. I got my inspiration from someone I know.
Hey speaking of Kohl's, I saw a sign in the parking lot of a shopping center that looked something like this:

KOHLS
STAPLES
DICK'S

Three stores there; but somebody wasn't thinking.

Ouch.

Yes. You absolutely have to know what you're doing with them.

<quoted text>
Would you be offended if I said you have rather a great, but very perverted, imagination? This has been reported here many times before, but for you I will detail it all in one post.

I met my first wife at my university at the beginning of the second semester of our first year there (we were both in the same year but different colleges, both at the same university). We dated from meeting until the summer after the 3rd year, when we were married, having been engaged for about 1 1/2 years. We had and raised 2 children and they both went through two levels of university, both graduating in the spring of 1999, one as a medical doctor, and the other as a Social worker with a Masters degree.

My wife and I agreed to separate, after 31 years of marriage, in September of 2000. I met another woman, twice divorced, in late October of that same year, and we basically lived together most of the time until the 3rd month of 2006, when we split after she had disclosed that she had commenced an affair with a man she had worked with during her 1st marriage, but had maintained a strong desire to be with through her next marriage, our relationship, the end of his marriage and the pending breakup of his common-law marriage.

I fought her leaving me for several months, and they got together and then he went back to his other partner, but then came back to her, at which time I sort of on a whim decided to look on a dating site that I had joined, but pulled my profile from, a few months before, for only a couple hours one day, leading to dates with 5 different women in the next 7 days, one being with my current wife, who I moved in with on our second date, just 4 days after our first date.

All decisions made at that time defied any form of rationality, but I was so not wanting to lose my partner that there was no possibility of me being rational. Fortunately as so often doesn't happen, in such situations, the move I made turned out to be a very good one.

Having said all that, I am a sticker. I would not have left either my first wife or my common-law wife, regardless of any problems (and there were no overt problems in my 2nd relationship at all), except both women are very head strong and both initiated the separation. Actually, after legally separating, my first wife did meet with me and asked me to come back to her a few months after I met my 2nd partner, but at that time I refused (one very rational and good decision I have made in my life).

I have no regrets, other than the loss of all the family and friends I acquired through those two relationships that stayed with the woman, of the breakup of my first marriage, because it had been pending for most of the 31 years. I will however likely take a lot of regrets of the 2nd breakup to my grave, because it caught me entirely unaware, and the feelings that arose were never resolved. I probably wouldn't even like that woman, if I was with her now, but her memory haunts me daily.

Fortunately I gained a much better wife, than either of the others, who is totally devoted to me, and neither of us has any interest in not being together.

The one difference, which does get on both our nerves from time to time, is that we are together almost 24/7 year round, whereas, both of the other women worked full-time, and so our time together in any given day could be very little.

I am 65 and she will be 65 in a couple months so our interests tend to be more centred in home based activities.

I do not have a gay bone in my body (no pun intended). I left religion actively in my first marriage approximately at the time when our two kids were leaving home to go to university, though that was not a factor in leaving the church.

Possibly the changes at the time though did make changing our regular going to church every Sunday easier to do.

I have a Pit and his job is to watch over my chihuahuas. We have lots of coyotes out here and he is just the sweetest thing he thinks hes a lap dog too!! My friend used to have a border collie when she was living with me and "Pepper" was one of the most intelligent dogs I've ever seen. Her focus was incredible.

He's very intelligent, and a great guard dog. He sleeps on the couch... new couch, I covered it w/ a quilt and that's his bed.
My Chow is 15 and I had to take him to the Vet today, he hurt his leg
and he has hip dysplasia, and arthritis in his knee, and I have to carry him in and out. He's on pain meds, and the Vet said other than the sprain he's in good health. I know his days are numbered, but I take it one day at a time with him, he is an amazing dog.
I also have a female long haired Chihuaha, she looks like a papillion. She's pretty tough,she doesn't take anything from the pit, it's funny. Anyway, nice talking to you, I have to get up early... goodnight (:

Perhaps, Sasha, my cousins Pit, has scarred me. I have Boston Terriers...they're my little loves, but I guess, if I needed a guard dog against coyotes, a pit would be a good choice.

Awe, that's terrible, I know you do have to watch them around kids especially. My husband travels with his job and is gone all week and I hate alarm systems, and since my Chow is old, I was going to get a German Shepherd, but this one happened to be crossing a busy
St. by my aunt's house and so I brought him home. He's a lot of work... luckily I have a friend who has two and she can watch him for me, I wouldn't trust him w/ just anybody, you definitely need to be familiar w/ the breed and they are different, if he were to
ever seriously injure a child I would have him euthanized... that would kill me, but once they do that, any dog, they have to be put down. So far, he's great, really cute, I've had dogs my whole life
and most on the dangerous dog list, but any dog can get vicious, I
don't expect it to happen, but will always be on my guard.. I don't think I have to worry about anyone breaking in. Lol
