Sounds like a good night for hot cocoa! Where are the marshmellows & Bailey's?

Yes. Basketball is nearly sacrosanct.

That would be too easy! There are a couple here in our little town but not in the same facility.

Where my mom's going (if she ever gets to the top of the waiting list), there's three buildings: independent living, assisted living, nursing home. Works out well.

It never ceases to amaze me how many lurkers there are out there. They're coming out of the woodwork on Kneny's thread. Although I'm heartbroken that damnjoe is fake. He was the only one around older than me.

Back when my Mom was together enough to plan ahead she was looking for something like that. Closest one is in Asheville. Two hours away. We both hated for her to be so far away. I know many of you are farther away from your families. Seems like somebody has to be pretty close to do all that stuff that only family members can do.

True, but if you're in the first step, you're on the top of the list for the next one rather than someone who's not there.

We're very lucky. This is about 15 minutes from where she lives now and is on the route between where my sister and b-i-l work and where they live. It's not as good as in right now she's only a two-minute walk from them, and she won't see the grandsons nearly as much, but it could be a lot worse.

Can't you take her out for the day? My grandmother was in a coma when she was in, so I wouldn't know.
Son was just walking, the people in the lobby would flock around him. I could see why bringing pets would work. I wasn't too happy about all those old people touching him.
Seeing that I've turned into one of those people who play with babies in the supermarket...I'll be one of those old ladies in the nursing home.

Thought question. Order pizza. Arrives at 10 PM. House gets down to 65 at night. Find out next morning said pizza remnants still on counter (2 pieces cheese) in box.

Question: Eat or no eat? % chance eating said pizza will result in sickness?

Hey dont, what size Woot t-shirts do you order? You can PM me if you want to. I am going to re-order the fishy. I've got to get one big enough to cover the menopausal rolls of cherubic. That's tmi but it's the truth! Just for the record, I also play with babies in the grocery store!

You will be absolutely fine unless some poisonous insect burrowed into the crust and laid eggs.

if there was nefarious bacterium on it, and assuming it could multiply in the cheese or meat toppings, it would multiply to bad levels in ~4 hours, so I'd go against it... but I couldn't say for sure if cooked cheese or meat toppings would support bacteria growth

Eat, eat! If you were still in college you wouldn't think a thing about it. Besides if you are young enough to eat pizza at 10pm and live to tell about it your system can handle a little botulism or whatever cold pizza eventually turns into. It's full of so many preservatives it will takes days to get wonky.

Maybe a XL in that case? My wife (who ain't skinny but not huge either) wears a 2x AA shirt, and a 22/24 shirt normally. She hates the necklines of the guy shirts though.

I had ordered the woman's XL (yes, I'm chubby) and I definitely like the cut of the woman's shirt better. But it's too small. If I were to lose 10-15 pounds (okay, 20) it'd work. For now, a woman's XXL would probably be perfect. I had husband wash my woot launch shirt today so I'll know what size it is post-washing and will then re-order my fish shirt.

BTW - should I be saying woman's or womans? I hate apostrophes and commas.

What are you talking about, "take her out for the day"? She's still driving, for God's sake. Admittedly, maybe she shouldn't be, but....

I always sleep through the darn things. Besides I am a bit far north for that one. Friends who live in the house I grew up in messaged me about it. It's farther south.

People here in town supposedly felt the Seattle quake a few years ago, I don't know I was in class trying to listen to a lecture at the time.

So sweet of you to say that. That's the size I order too. Who knows when my fishy
will get here, my mail lady already thinks I am nuts. Last time we got B O C's they arrived the same day as some shirts (I think Joe's moon one). She had lots of questions at the door that day.
