    Wow, how wonderful to have that letter!

    Maybe dementia is just a function of where the plaques stick to the brain. Maybe random plaques take away 2018 for one person, but 1976 for another. Maybe...

    Oh, wow, do you mind sharing your previous username? Is it the same? I've been around since 1999, too, but my memory is not 100% so take no offense if I don't remember you!

    I love your post. The...

    Why is that? I just looked it up and it sounds intriguing. DH might like the truffle-hunting part, and I might like the living in a remote cabin part.

    This reminds me of that classic scene in "And Justice For All" when Al Pacino goes with the crazy judge in an airplane (or was it a helicopter?) and the judge tells him about the game he plays where...

    Nomadland was one of those movies I was dying to watch, and made DH watch it. He crashed on it early--saw about 20 minutes and took off for his workshop. I watched it, but it didn't meet my...

    Yes, that's what I told DH: I praised his ability to taxi and take off so well, and I told him that true phobias are visceral responses. Frankly, I've always been amazed, knowing about this phobia,...

    Part of the reason my eldest son gave his dad this gift for his birthday was that my DS remembered the hours and hours that DH spent on his home office computer on Flight Simulator.

    haha!!!

    Thanks for the meme-ory
    Of content that is terse
    A sentence is perverse!
    And icons spin
    A tale that's thin
    For better or for worse
    How pithy it is!
  14. Poll: Would you accompany your partner on their first flying lesson?

    DH got a flying lesson in a Cessna with a trained pilot, obviously, for his birthday. He chose a Saturday so that I could go with him.

    I have a million commercial miles in the air, but somehow...

    Favorite lines from movies

    I went out to eat last night with my DD/DSIL/DH/DS.

    It was a nice place--like a Manhattan loft-type restaurant, but not that expensive--kind of medium priced for a very interesting menu. Couldn't...
