Two small things I'm thankful for

I haven't done wash in a while, and I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel, but I matched a pair of socks that haven't been matched in several years, so that was kind of neat. One was in my "no match" drawer, and the other the bottom of my underwear drawer, which I haven't bottomed out in a long time. Boom, socked til tomorrow.

Also, my dog is at that age where he is just beginning to slow down a bit (4-5yrs.) and he totally knows every drill. He won't go in the street, he doesn't bother people when we run by them and he is off leash, etc. etc. Every move I make, he just knows what's up. Just a joy to have around.

thumbs up



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

I can attest that good dogs and good socks should never be taken for granted!

Great. Socks are essential, underwear, not so much.

Hey, see if you have the match to the one atop my dresser. It's pair has been missing for about 3 weeks now. According to the law of conservation of matter and energy it must be here somewhere.

I guess the lesson learned from your story is that I need to use everything in my sock drawer.

Fun stories!

A corollary to this discussion: how long does one hold onto a single sock...?

I held onto a bag of singles for about 6 years, got rid of it after a move.
