Re: Do You Like Kids?

I like them at least 20 feet away from me. Very clear, Madam! I might have said the same thing until our granddaughters were born :bigsmile: .

I realize that times have changed, but both of our kids have silverplate, crystal and bone china. Yes, I bought a few pieces for both. My mother loved dishes and had quite a collection of wonderful china that was passed down to me. I already had our white dishes with a gold rim which was an engageme...

Re: What Are Your Life NUMBERS So Far?

Wow!! 70+ years of togetherness (sanctified by marriage). Way to go :appl: :wavey:

After 50 years, our memories fade too and we don't have the energy or the wish to start all over again.

One sobering thought for me is that I can't imagine life without my sweetheart. :love:
