    When I was growing up, we had a grocery store in a country area. Some people would take candy and not pay. Just small items. My Dad did not like that. He put a dish near the register with chocolate candy and Exlax pieces. I don't remember if anyone actually ate it. 198 He had a hug... Read more

    So annoying to have lost yesterday’s blog. Whatever I hit wasn’t “post”. Ah well. One reflection and then I’ll move on. It felt very good but strange to enjoy parties and picnics in person with groups of 20-25. My car is in the shop so no thrift shopping today. I’m on the lookout for seve... Read more
