    Coincidentally, just this afternoon as a friend and I were limping our gimpy way along, I remarked to him: "The worst thing about getting older … " (I’m 78 and he’s 53) … “is that it just keeps getting worse.” When we were younger, sore muscles recovered and injuries healed, but not any more! Bone on bone hip joints (me) and gouty feet (him) aren’t going to get better. Sigh! Growing old isn’t for wimps. The only thing we can do is keep moving forward for as long as we can.

    Aren’t anime eyes copies of puppy dog eyes?

    You can … but those forbidden foods will make them ill, or even kill them.

    I learned to drive in the 1960s on a reconditioned 3-quarter ton pickup with a sticky second gear that my cousin used as her primary errand-running vehicle. One morning, a week or so into my lessons, I was supposed to drive us (myself, my cousin, her four children, and our groceries) home from the supermarket, when I experience a major mis-coordination of clutch, shift, and accelerator, and bounced us in a series of bounds across the parking lot until I killed the engine. As I melted into a puddle of chagrin and embarrassment, I heard the kids in the truck bed shouting “Do it again! Do it again!”

    Neither mumbling nor stumbling—Biden is a lifelong stutterer who has for the most part overcome his disability, only occasionally hesitating over a word—it speaks to his intense focus and determination, not to any mental deficiency. McCarthy, however, probably mumbles and stumbles because he “talks out of both sides of his mouth” (Google the phrase if you’re not familiar with it).

    On actual polo ponies, riders wrap their tails before a game to prevent them from becoming entangled with the mallet (“wonker”) and otherwise getting in the way. It’s not painful for a horse because it’s just the tail hair that’s folded backward and wrapped—the tail bone is only about 12" long. Poor Rosebud, however, is undoubtedly uncomfortable, which pales in comparison to losing his poor nose!

    Good! You’re supposed to be!

    Poor Cylene—all that attitude takes so much of her time and energy, she has nothing left to have fun with, not to mention driving all possible friends away, leaving her in isolation.

    Noooooo!!! Soft ice cream?? Nooooo! I prefer my ice cream to be hard enough to chew! Thus the frozen lips. I used to stop at Mickey D’s before work (swing shift) and get a soft-serve cone, then put it in the freezer in the break room and eat it 4 hours later when it had hardened enough for my preferences.

    Oh, but I do eat ice cream slowly (my favorite: Trader Joe’s Coffee Bean Blast, right out of the container)—just half a spoonful at a time, held in my (slowly freezing) mouth, savoring it until it melts, then another half spoonful 5-10 seconds after the first (count it out—5 to 10 seconds is a looong time when you’re eating ice cream!) But it doesn’t matter how slowly I eat it, my lips still get numb!
