Three of my favorite things are eating my family and not using commas.

I just don't check back on threads I comment in like I used to... what a nice and civil string of posts, capped off with a laugh.

I have a pretty comfortable life considering the income I've generated, but that luck is not going to carry through to a comfortable old age. I'm just trying to come to grips with that possibility and it's not a fun subject.

I think I remember you saying you are self-employed? Talk to your fellows in the field. Is money all you're after? You may be selling yourself short (unless your family situation is dependent on you.) Start writing ideas down.

A few years ago, Narco started a thread that shared home maintenance tips that people often hired him for, that are reasonably easy for us to do ourselves if only we knew how. I thought that was a nice gesture and I found it useful. Anyway, I have to believe you'll manage, Narco.

From a random post on the internet:
Those of you who are placing Christmas lights/decorations in your yards, can you please avoid anything that has Red or Blue flashing lights together? Every time I come around the corner, I think it's the police and I have a panic attack. I have to brake hard, toss my bourbon, fasten my seat belt, throw my phone on the floor, turn my radio down, and push the gun under the seat. All while trying to put my clothes back on.
It's just too much drama, even for Christmas. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Did a cartwheel today thinking it was like riding a bike. It's not.

9 months trying to get out, and the rest of their lives trying to get back in?

Why does Charter cable have two or more of the same programming on different channels?

I see that Tag Evers, the concert promoter, is running for alder in my district. When I read that, I wondered if he is related to the governor-elect.
