@Bird mama 

Thank you! 

Fun fact, I am now the owner of a BIRD FEEDER for my crazy cat! My next door neighbor is mad about their excrement on her deck, so she asked me to move it farther away.

It makes Willow so happy to see the outside critters- squirrels, birds and rabbits.  Yesterday BF saw a big FOX in the backyard.

@lolakimono  Thank you for checking in. I miss your interesting posts. Good luck on your surgery and best wishes for continued good health for your Mom. You must be delighted to have her back in the area. I often wished that my Mom didn't live so far away after I became an adult-that's why I'm so grateful that my daughter and grandkids live in the same town as us.

I loved reading the fable of the ****** willows. I had never heard that story before. It's great to learn something new every day.


@abbalulu 

Yes, it's great to have her nearby.  We usually go out to dinner once a week with my (teaching) work spouse and a couple times a week I go over there or invite her for dinner at our place.

My brother had her in FL for almost 20 years, although a few hours apart, but now it's my turn.

Re: Fashion Friends, What's New and Good?

Hello, @lolakimono
It's nice to hear from you. Thank you for the update. Wishing You and Your Loved Ones the Best! 🌈

 

I retired from teaching several years ago due to health issues. Like you, I miss the kids and my colleagues sometimes, but I don't miss getting up before dawn and working until late at night. 

The biggest change in my life is after 40 years I'm taking some time off from singing in the choir. That's a long story, but, basically, I needed a break from all the changes implemented by our new director and priest. 

I still shop and buy way too many clothes 🥴. I have been shopping local consignment stores for a few years now. I never thought I would buy used clothing, shoes, jewelry, and handbags, but I've found some very nice things. 

Take care!

Yes, you GET it!

I am trying to help others get out and reclaim their personal time, but the golden handcuffs are getting in the way.  I don't think a lot of teachers realize by the time they are ready to collect, the amount they think they've worked for won't be there, and the COLAs aren't catching up.

 

Maybe you'll find another outlet for your voice, outside of the church choir.

@lolakimono :  I always think of you and the time you spent with a student getting him scholarships....wondering if you know how he is doing.  Enjoy your new life.
