      Does anyone on here play the harmonica?

        Well...I play at it would be a better explanation. Can't say I've played it much in the last ten years though.

      Was thinking about wandering today but just watched a car slide into the ditch trying to come up the drive - maybe I'll wait another day.

        Here everything turns to mud after a big rain. No fun. I use a car to "wander". In your case the authorities in your area are telling people to stay inside for the time being because travel is too dangerous.

        this only allows so many characters and I accidently omitted wandering 'out', and yes, I meant with my car. lol The roads are fine - just so many tree and driveway is long and uphill and remains icy for a long times once the snow starts to melt away. And it gets real muddy when it does finally melt.

        ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ What can you do? Didn't used to like it when my own dog looked like a ragamuffin and smelled. Used to shave her twice a year, oh how she hated that! Her hair grew like crazy and it was everywhere.

        He doesn't shed, he just matts so bad and so fast. When I rescued him he was bald because they had to shave him down to the skin from the matts. He also was skin and bones.

        Poor creature. He's so much better off with someone who looks after him and cares for him, like you.

      Yay! We were blanketed with quite a bit of snow this morning and it's supposed to keep snowing all day.

        I had to replace my monitor last winter. Being into photography, I bought a 27" wide screen. WOW! Like you I have gone back to videos from my DVD collection. Reruns on a computer.

        This is a 29" wide screen, which I like because it's not too high and still at eye level, which I need. The HD is fantastic. I just decided, as much time as I spend on the computer - photo editing, jigsaw puzzles, and here - it would be worth the investment and I was sooo right.

        This past summer I went with my sons and his family out west and he had a go pro attached to the rear view mirror so I can re-take that trip over and over. :) And it looks like I'm there - again.

      My monitor is going out and it's hard to be on the computer right now - so my time here is limited until I get my new monitor.

        Is there a connector that will allow you to connect it to your TV to tide you over? Most modern tellies work as monitors too - my desktop PC is connected to our TV and is our main entertainment system.

      Both my sons are excellent cooks but neither of my son in laws know how to cook. Maybe I was a better mom than I thought. hmmmm

        My Mom didn't teach my brother how to cook, he taught himself. He's not half bad as a cook, but he cooks lots of 'heavy' meals.

        Teaching a child even the most basic of culinary skills is a huge contribution to their future well being. They may choose to learn later, but if they leave the nest already equipped, they've a headstart. Good on you Pats.

      Every year I put Christmas stockings on my coffee table legs.

        Yep, during the Victorian era it was actually somewhat common to put thick stockings on table legs, so the legs wouldn't be "naked" and thus improper.

      My dog whines and yelps when I play my harmonica. Does that mean he likes it and singing along or hates it and saying stop?

        So maybe he thinks I'm assembling the pack. He does get excited and trying to get closer to my face as he - guess he's howling, it's just high pitched. :)

        One of those million dollar questions with pets. If it bothered him I would think he would try and hide away from it. I suspect he is just getting excited and wants to join in. Noise making/howling is a pack activity - I have 4 who do it all the time :/

      Woke up with Led Zepplins "I'm Gonna Crawl" in my head. Not a bad tune to wake up to.

      When I kept declining preventive tests I asked the dr why I would want to prolong my life and live to be 90 and not be able to do anything?
