    When you instantly feel put upon any time you see high schoolers on their lunch break. (To be fair, this started happening to me six months after I graduated high school.)

    lol…felt like a grouchy old woman last week when I encountered 2 WSHS students cutting class at 8:35am, sitting on the steps to our building’s storage room, under a carport smoking pot….directly under a “No Trespassing ” sign. I asked if they had seen the sign. “Uh, what sign?”. So I told them politely that they needed to move on.They did…to the apartment building parking lot 2 doors down.

    When you’re excited to find out the ending of the same book you’ve read over and over for the past 10 years.

    When you remember JoB and miws for not getting a big charge out of ‘slapping down’ someone with a different view of squatters on public land.

    you know what, Genesee Hill…you’ve a one track mind. Lighten up. This is not about your view on NV, and it’s getting rather sickening that that’s all you post about., even on a light hearted thread. We get it. According to you, they are bums, and should be run out of town on a rail. GIVE IT A REST !

    OK. Got it, Jan.

    I remember visiting a Dick’s (of hamburger fame) in Bellevue. Do you? And it was later torn down. What was the new location of the Dick’s they replaced it with? Hint: the location was named after a queen…and it may have had ‘Hill’ in the location name…

    Typical.

    Makes endless, derogatory remarks about those that are less fortunate, then can’t handle the “slap-down” of being called out on it.

    No, Mike. It was the Queen Anne Hill Dick’s that replaced the Dick’s in Bellevue. But close.

    Just getting back to this thread and I do have to laugh. I really don’t ever feel old until something like this reminds me of my half century plus on this earth. In my mind, I’m still twenty something with the advantage of the wisdom of my years.

    i know this isn’t a popular position…

    but tickle me pink..

    there are benefits to aging…

    LOL.. what the body does isn’t one of them

    looking nice takes on a whole new meaning after 60

    but… if we are lucky… our hearts and minds grow in ways we never expected…

    you know you are old when you can tell old jokes with a knowing smile ;->

    When you drive by a cute 20-something and your head turns to better appreciate the view… and then you realize he or she is young enough to be your kid, and likely thinks you’re a creepy old fart.

    …when you’ve had enough life experience to realize that you can’t train absolutely everyone to have compassion for, and to not demean others.

    It’s not your fault, nor your problem, that they have chosen to not overcome their own insecurities.
