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.)June 10, 2013 at 8:56 am #791430
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.June 10, 2013 at 2:29 pm #791431

When you have to ask for help reading labels in the store…worse, you find yourself looooong past that first moment of Self Consciousness at doing so..:)June 10, 2013 at 8:09 pm #791435
grazie….I have to remember to take my readers on all trips shopping…or who knows what I’d buy.June 10, 2013 at 8:12 pm #791436June 10, 2013 at 8:42 pm #791437June 10, 2013 at 10:47 pm #791438June 11, 2013 at 1:17 am #791439

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.June 11, 2013 at 3:29 am #791441
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 !June 11, 2013 at 3:48 am #791442
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…June 11, 2013 at 3:50 am #791443
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.June 11, 2013 at 4:02 am #791445
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.June 11, 2013 at 5:50 am #791446June 11, 2013 at 1:15 pm #791447
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 ;->June 11, 2013 at 2:13 pm #791448
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.June 11, 2013 at 7:31 pm #791449

When you claim to love the folks at Nickelsville, but don’t want ’em anywhere near your residence…June 12, 2013 at 1:41 am #791451
i’m not the one who doesn’t want them anywhere near my house
you should see the garden they have cultivated for me
i can tell i am getting old because …
without them i would still be dreaming about what might have beenJune 12, 2013 at 2:03 am #791452
…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.
