Re: Fall Healthy Living Thread

Thanks Marcy. How wonderful for Marty. I know the constant "on-call" aspect of his job, not to mention "little" jaunts to Japan, were wearing thin. I hope he's much happier. I know what you mean about leaving for work and he's still home. Charlie finally had all he could take of ...

Re: Old PS'er Asking For Advice on Engagement Ring - Cushion

Thanks Charmy......WF is bringing in the 1.26 and the 1.51. I would have brought in all 3, but my friend has been brainwashed by Tiffany that E color represents "better" color, so he's [hopefully] going to be able to pick from one of the options........

Hey there to you too DS. I'll have pics in a few days and will post them when I get them. You're right. You can't choose a stone based on a cert. Thanks my friend. Hope you are well.......

Thanks Marcy.....WF is going to bring the stone in house and do sarins, etc., and then we'll have a better idea. It's not see you my friend. I hope you and Marty are well!

Re: Fall Healthy Living Thread

Hello.....My name is Rod and I used to post here all the time. I'm sorry for being MIA for so long. I must admit I have not been working out as diligently as I once did. After my mother passed away last year, and having my father left on his own down here, coupled with an insanely busy work schedule...

Old PS'er Asking For Advice on Engagement Ring - Cushion Cut

Hey PS.....It's been a long time since I posted. Hopefully, someone out there will remember me. I'm helping a friend from the gym with an engagement ring. He was about to plunk down waaaaay too much money on a ring at Tiffany and I've convinced him he can do so much better with a PS vendor. The ring...

Re: February Healthy Living Thread

Hey.....Today was a tough one. It would have been my mother's 88th birthday today. Charlie and I went down to my dad's and took him to dinner. He lives about 30 miles from us, in a more rural area. Restaurants are somewhat limited. So, I had read about a seafood place and the reviews said the food w...

Re: February Healthy Living Thread

Hi Deegee.....Thank you for the kind words. It is comforting to at least have my father nearby as I'm sure it is for him. He does enjoy his new golf cart, which he keeps referring to as a "go-cart!" Today was his first day completely alone. I just spent the last hour speaking with him and ...

Re: February Healthy Living Thread

Thanks so much Marcy. It has certainly been tough lately for sure. Hopefully, we're past the difficult stage and things will calm down. One of the complications is that my father is nearly 90 and has macular degeneration, so his vision is greatly diminished. I took him to a retina specialist last we...
