    My daughter suggested I go into such a business what with all the stuff that we brought here from both of our parents’ houses, and our kids didn’t want any, except some kitchen stuff, linens, & towels…

    I was hoping they would take the art and collectibles, seeing as how much some of it is selling for on the internet, but they don’t want to bother with the shipping…and said that we have more time since we are retired…

    See, you could be funny in a “clean way” and still make a fortune. In “those days” people didn’t have to be clobbered over their heads with a joke, they knew about nuance…

    Speaking of Johnny Carson, they were running his shows on our local Antenna TV, and what made me sad, also, is that so many of those entertainers are dead already…

    I did that too, and I took my little brother with me “for company”, as she said with a smile. Yes, I could buy a treat with the change, or keep it. I had a piggy bank in my room, so I kept the silver looking change, if there were any, but used up the pennies for treats.

    I must have been pre school still, because I remember I pushed the stroller, because he wasn’t walking yet, and he’s four years younger than I am… In the summer, I pushed him all around to wherever there was a group of kids and we all played together, and the kids who were in the strollers would laugh at us or some were sleeping already…

    Today, no doubt, someone would call child services, and in those days it was a common occurrence…

    Some people, mostly men, invoke him every day, everytime they leave their car or when they walk their dog…to the disgust and revulsion to people who might observe such an invocation…

    Have you actually talked to, or been at a dinner, to a friend’s home who is of that ethnicity?

    I have. …And no, it is not considered polite in any way to burp or belch in their home. Slurping up noodles, might be fine but only father does it, not the kids or their mom, who is my friend, BTW.

    She even warned us about copying that custom. She said “Don’t react to what father does at dinner, and don’t copy him if you think you would be polite to me. It isn’t.

    Thank you very much for this illustration about doing one’s favorite thing and making a living out of it. It is so very true. My mother’s love of sewing from observing her sisters, turned into teaching that subject in schools as a travelling teacher, then later she decided to start her own bridal boutique. I learned to sew from her.

    I don’t subscribe to New York Times, and it wouldn’t let me read this article without paying, but I found his obit on another site.

    The term is often portrayed in memes depicting white women who use their white privilege to demand their own way….

    I was writing this and at the same time listening to a news story about the space station, and I didn’t even notice that mistake…Yes, it was a microscope, but I did write the microbiology part correctly.

    Here’s the corrected version:

    I think with Petey the problem is that he reads above his grade and intelligence level since he takes everything literally, and he hasn’t learned common sense…

    In real life: one of my friends was very interested in using the microscope so her parents got her one for Christmas, but way too soon for her age, since she developed the same scariness toward food, as Petey, as soon as she saw those little pieces all magnified… That didn’t last long, though, and she overcame her dread because she liked the taste of everything more than being turned off at how it looked all magnified…

    Not end of story, she did end up studying microbiology but she decided on family medicine in the end, although during her years of university she worked in labs studying germs, but in the end that didn’t hold her interest as much as helping people to become healthy.
