  1. Howdy y'all, it's been a while! I'm still around and go to The Cowboys events. Some of you know I'm a retired Spec Ed teacher, Realtor, and still am a swim instructor in the summer. The last 3 years, I've been helping my aging parents, and taking care of them, along my sister --as long as she has been able to hold out. Mom passed July 2017 [87.5] , and Dad in Oct 2018 [89.5] They were a beautiful loving couple all their lives, met in the Army, and married at 21, until death for 67 years; wonderful not perfect parents. Dad left everything to me and younger Sis to sell and split. I've been cleaning out the house where we both grew up from 1955, and it has been sad yet enjoyable remembering good times with every treasure I find. Sis doesn't want anything from the house. She has a very different perspective on them and our childhood--bitter. Long story short, she has blamed them for her addictions and I reckon I must be part of that , too, because she has nothing but words of hate if we speak. It has been like this for 45 years depending on her mood and the circumstance---if others are watching. My cousin and I have come to the conclusion she is bipolar schizo like Mom and his mom, her sister. You never know who you're gonna get. I'm baffled why Dad made her his power of atty and executor. She has no education and has never owned property aside from joint, never responsible for bills or taxes, her hubby did it all--control freak. After the funeral, she sent me his trust but it took her 2 mos. Dad asked me several times to sell the cars and take care of that, just as I always had done for him. I have buyer of 2 of the 3, but only doc files for one. She will not answer my calls or texts, and I figured out I am blocked. No communication with her. My daughter wants to move into the house and buy if for her family. They are broke in MO, want to move back, and I want to help her. The last chat we had, Sis said it was a good idea. She talks to my daughter not me, and the two of them are making plans to fix up the house behind my back as if my half doesn't count. The two of them are angry at me for no reason--I'm nice to everyone and no one responds to my calls. What the heck happened? I thought we were gonna work it out together. I keep telling her to stop drinking that poison, it ain't kilt me yet. I didn't even get full disclosure on what Dad left in his bank or safety deposit box. Sis thinks she doesn't have to talk or tell me anything and said so to my face. I don't see how this is gonna work for good. Please share your experiences. My last resort is to write a letter to claim my half, but my daughter will be left out, and it appears Sis is manipulating or is really disturbed.
  3. that's why people like living here--it is a big state, and we have all four seasons, all year, every week, somewhere. hey, even Hawai'i has snow.
  4. Mom's birthday was yesterday--87! She always says she was born on the 13th day of the 13th month
  5. yes, and some committed suicide because of it, including his own son
  6. SOLD--THANX FOR LOOKING! You women shooters know all about these culottes. FABRIC IS A PECAN COLOR and still has sizing [stiffness]. They are like trousers with wide straight legs and an A-line shape. There is a double row button down apron in the front, so they appear to be a skirt. The waist band comes to a point in the front and back with one belt loop center back. There are two long side-slit pockets. The length is to mid-calf or ankle depending on how tall you are. They have a lovely tight pleat at the back seam, and hug the rear-end nicely. The star buttons are bronze color. I replaced the first button with a flatter larger one for ease of use and to keep closed much better; but I will include the original one. Seldom worn, never washed, no holes or worn out areas. No problems that I can see; may have dirt smudges, hanger marks or stains I missed. Some dust from long time hanging in the closet. Recommend washing in cold water only or dry clean. IRON INSIDE OUT--or the fabric will get shiny--100 % COTTON Waist 14" across Length abt 40" Bottoms 22" across at end of pleat -- about at the tail bone/hips Asking $20. with $14. shipping Thanky, CC CaliopeCupcake@msn.com Will try to post pix on here Link for photos: http://www.ebay.com/itm/162347691439?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  7. Happy New Year Pards! I began SS benefits last May at 65. I needed some added income now, and glad I did it. I've had 8 careers, but never worked in the system long enough to accumulate any real retirement nest-egg. Even after delivering the mail for 6 yrs, I took out what I earned the last year they let us, and bought the kids braces! Not even teaching school for 15 yrs, or working in beauty salons 20 yrs, it just didn't pay off to wait any longer, you need 30 yrs for many participation plans. I still tutor 6 mos a year for a nat'l company 8 yrs, and teach swim lessons the other 6 mos. for 55 yrs. self employed
