I agree, too many people. Working on getting away from too many people, and never looking back.

I had to take Jenny to the mall in Sarasota to buy shoes last weekend. It was awful. The traffic, the people. I was walking along behind some he/she in front of Dillard's. Looked like a blonde mannequin. All I could see was those big hairy heels crammed into gold pumps and I thought I was going to get sick. I said to Jenny...not too quietly either...

"Get me out from behind this thing!"

She moved off to the left, clearing a path so that I could get away.

"I think it heard you mom." Jenny said.

"Oh well. Too bad, so sad. If you're going to go out dressed for Halloweeen you may as well expect to scare people."

I hate it when I get that way, but I have my limits, and a blonde sasquatch with a five o'clock shadow, in sequined Armani and matching bag will do it every time.

Aww C'mon Cindi, tell us how you REALLY feel *LOL* You sound just like my baby sister now : )

Isn't that AWFUL! I should be more tolerant but I just can't help it. I don't know. And here I am letting Jenny see me like that.

I still haven't figured out the difference between "social tolerance", and "rolling over". You know? My daddy always said if you don't stand for something, you'll stand for anything and I find that to be a pretty good rule of thumb.

This guy just really got under my skin. He didn't even try to look female. If I had gotten past him sooner, maybe I wouldn't have reacted so strongly.

After 40 years of city livin I've been spending some time on our place out in the country. 1/2 mile from nearest neighbor at the end of a dead end road 1 mile from nearest highway.

I had forgotten how quite the country can be.

Drinkin morning coffee on the deck watching deer and squirrel is fast becoming my favorite way to start the day out there.

DD (who agrees with ya on that Bob) In some places it surely does seem that way : )
