Re: Hot, hot weather!

Hola Bertino56, I was not aware of other SK "ducks" about the State, save Dave in PDX. I'm hanging out in Oregon too currently trying to help my folks with the notion and reality of a transition to Assisted Living, but we always try to get in an excursion south when here as we still "own" property i...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Sounds like a small break-through to me. Use of word skirt could be derogatory, but just as likely revealing a crack in the opposition and "testing or allowing" you to acknowledge it is skirts you wish to wear, not just the socially "approved" kilt. Take your victories where you can get them, that w...

Re: Online live meeting anyone?

I agree with Moon. It is just one session now; can be a dozens scheduled or at random if it connects folks in pleasant and useful ways at whatever time and place ---so let's give it a shot and see what happens. I've hosted all of one zoom meeting but "attended" a number of them -- so I'm not a good ...

Re: Update on my Wife

UA; What a dreadful and draining withdrawal from life for both of you. I do hope you've access to suitable pain meds to help ease the physical aspects some. When Pa lost so much of his vision that he could no longer read, do even large print Sudoku or see TV -- the State library offered a books on t...

Re: Online live meeting anyone?

Zoom is easy even for non-techies. Just mute mics or work from a quiet room (no coughing/laughing)! No reason you can't have multiple times and whoever is available can chime in; or pick another day and time -- mix and match meetings. The only issue is if these are recorded those leery of being "see...

Re: Covid 19

It is not very decent, or kind -- but I am beginning to think just maybe if all of the people refusing and declining the vaccine ( if it is available to them ) will help rid the earth of the inanity that has brought it so much grief. [Note: nearly the only people dying from Covid now are the un-vacc...

Started with my 1st "gateway skirt" (utility kilt) 8 weeks ago. took it out for a drive the 1st time to get my 2nd covid vacc early June, and by the time of this post I'm on my 3rd utility kilt (blue, khaki and brown)...

Re: New toy...

People draw blank looks when I mention computerizing our office in Kona in about 1981 with the latest hot PC -- a "portable" Osborne with 5" monochrome CRT screen,64K of RAM and DUAL floppy drives! It used a CP/M OS and since we were doing head-hunting and needed mainland resumes and files, we had w...

Re: hello from Colorado

I recall a rather dismal 3 months in Boulder in early 1965; warming up years later in delightful mountain hot springs to the west of Denver where our daughter lived for a while -- but sadly I was not wearing skirts then; didn't really get started until the mid 70's and only in the last few years hav...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

I don't suppose it counts as "sightings in the wild" when we are the ones sporting the skirt; but I have had more interactions this last week than in a long cumulative time as we've been out scouting for assisted living facilities for my parents. As typical, I've obviously been in a skirt and it see...
