Re: I have a little problem

We are coming up on 34 years together. One of the most important things we have learned is that in a marriage a certain amount of elbow room is essential. Indeed. This missive reminds me of precisely how much I lost in July of 2015 when my ex's brain shorted out and she tried to get me killed. She ...

Re: It's not really a big deal after all!!!

I’d read that if you sit in the car waiting for the right opportunity to get out, you probably never will. Man that brings back memories... sitting in the car, working up the courage to go outside... I was quite fortunate that by the time I was ready to show up in public in a skirt my then-wife was...

Welcome to the real world of trying to find understanding companionship. It's a tough row -- even after one is fully confident.

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

Moon has it precisely correct here. There is no need for harassment of anyone by anyone, and when it does happen it's safest to just let it slide. First and foremost, don't escalate the situation. If the guy was being a stupid jerk in public he got what he deserved; make stupidity hurt -- and if the...

Re: Pleated Midi Skirt Trend

I own several, one in beige, one black, one floral, and at least one other. They move nicely and are quite comfortable to wear.

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

This physically grown man has the mental capacity of a two year old. He should be arrested for assault on a minor. The source outlet here is highly questionable, and even given that there is room for question unless the actual verbiage and posturing was caught on camera. From an initial read, this ...

Re: Pleated Maxi Skirt Trend

There has (and still is) a trend for maxi skirts - certainly down here there is. I just wanted to say that these skirts with a more elastic type of waist can suit different hip shapes and waistlines nicely - and would present an option that is easily wearable for everybody. Those aren't maxis, thos...

Re: Telegraph fashion podcast

The problem we have is that they are all enthusiastic about the idea of men wearing skirts - in principle - but so long as it's not the men who are their husbands or boyfriends. This sums it up precisely . They're all fine with the notion, but would not dare be seen in public "attached" to a guy so...

Re: Old navy 2020

In this respect "gender neutral" is just newspeak for unisex. The attitude is still gender specific. Indeed, just as "unisex" has always been code for "butching up" the female of the species. What's old is new again. (Written from the point of view of somebody who has seen the cycles in action.) Th...

Re: Dogwood Winter

Conversely, it's a very unusual Winter we don't have tee shirt weather for about 2 weeks right in the middle. We used to have that in New England too, but climate-change has done away with that and we haven't had a "mid-January Thaw" in a little more than a decade. March, here, is the new February,...

Re: Dogwood Winter

Heh. An April snow flurry. We got six inches of widowmaker snow last week, and it hung around for days, completely flattening all the pretty little spring flowers in the process. The last freeze for central Massachusetts from an agricultural point of view is around May 19 -- still close to a month a...

He basically noticed that countries that had just done a big Measles inoculation program didn't have a big Covid outbreak. It'll be interesting to see if that's independently corroborated by proper studies. In general, a "wide awake" immune system is a pretty robust thing, and one thing I worry abo...

Re: Charlie Chaplin - Words to live by

The Addams Family is still on the TV. It is on the Family Entertainment Television channel. if you have Direct-TV it is channel 323. I record it so I can binge watch it in the evenings. That was one of my favourites growing up. That show ran more or less contemporaneously with The Munsters which wa...
