Stitches are out!
When I was in school, we did learn personal finances. We had to keep records and all. I think it was high school, but I can’t name the class offhand. It wasn’t economics, because I managed to avoid that all the way through all my education somehow.
I never knew rattlers came in solid black until I almost stepped on one on a trail. I backed up a bit, gave him a minute to move, and sure enough, the trail was clear. I didn’t want to go all the way back to the beginning.
And the sunroof!
So true! My child used to just explode sometimes!
We could use more snakes that bite once and leave. Or not bite at all, of course.
This explains a lot about Gladys, maybe even her cooking issues.
Beagles can smell a drop of blood in an Olympic sized pool. My dog never has to sniff someone to decide what pets they have at home. She just stands a few feet away and I can see her assessing. The golden retriever we do dog therapy with does need to actually get close and sniff hard. I can tell how many pets someone has at home by how long the golden takes to finish the assessment. Also, my beagle once shocked me by slipping her leash and trotting straight ahead up the street a block and a half. She had never let me know she before that she could slip her leash at any given moment, and never again since. I was trotting along behind her, she stopped, and started sniffing the ground. There was a nest of baby bunnies in a small hole, covered up with leaves and twigs. No babies were hurt, and we took a different route for two months to let them grow up in peace.
That railing to me is called a “clothes line” for drying large items that don’t go in the dryer.
I think basic home repairs and such should be taught at school. Some of the classes that are offered now are useless, and I don’t mean the basics like math and English and history. I remember getting highly upset at school when I was refused the option of taking “shop” class. That was only allowed for boys, and my complaint that I already knew how to cook and sew landed on deaf ears. Those rules changed a long time ago. So did the degree of skill required in those classes.
