HAPPY NEW WEEK!I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Annette: Enjoy your trip to L.A.
Diane: I snuck in to see if the site was up and running - so thanks for starting yet another week. What I don't understand is that - at least with last week's thread - once we're a few pages in, clicking on the "Latest..." it's taken me at least to the very first page of the thread. If I click on whoever's name is shown, it takes me to their profile. Gremlins again! I hope they fix it.....
Heather: Good for you - who needs to be treated like an idiot. I hope he picked up that you weren't thrilled with his approach (but probably not). How many alternative options do you have?
Rosy: I'm seeing one friend and former colleague who moved to Kansas City some years back but wants to come back to California to be near her grandkids. She used to have a lovely little house in a primo location but sold it when she moved to KC and now can't afford to buy anything back here. Two other friends are from the 70s and then there are two editors at the magazine I do freelance work for - will be having lunch with them before I stop back by the office to say Hi to a couple of other folks. Plan to be back home Wednesday afternoon or early Thursday pm in time to watch the Democratic presidential candidates debate Hope your granddaughter adjusts okay to the new school; it may take her a while to get used to it. A shame about the former friend who "can't be seen playing with girls" - dubious peer pressure at work there it seems. I went to a girls-only school; all subsequent generations went to mixed schools, which I think is much better in terms of the opposite sex not being such a novelty once you're out in the world. :-)
Hot here today; should cool down tomorrow. I plan to leave early and drive down the coast before the beach crowd hits the highway. I'll stop at a couple of furniture/home stores on my way through LA. Our armchairs are a disaster and I'm tired of artfully arranging throws to hide the wear and tear. But we still need to choose a new floor!
