Post a good thing that happened in your life today

Seems to me that's an odd sort of thing to notice, and retain a particular memory of, for 25 years, and then mention in a forum about "a good thing that happened today".

 

Hmmmm. "Swarthy with a prominent nose" sounds like a guy I would be attracted to. Jewish? Italian? Sounds good to me. I wonder why it would sound like a bad thing.

I didn't say "bad", I said "odd". The "bad" was inferred. No doubt you're trying to be conciliatory but the full quote is "a lot more swarthy people percentage-wise on the east coast. Dark hair & eyes, and more prominent noses". Surely you can see that there's another, less wholesome interpretation of that, the single observation recalled of a trip to NY other than the name of the hotel. I offered space for an explanation, but explanation came there none, only accusations and insults.

"The lady doth protest too much, methinks".

nothing can be accepted for what it is

It's not always clear "what it is", see above. It merely struck me as an odd comment. The reaction was more illuminating.

Says something about your arrogance that you think Betty owes you an explanation.

Think what you like. I'll do likewise.

I don't think I would, but if I were to write a post about racial characteristics, I wouldn't want it to be misinterpreted, hence the space offered. Have you actually read the posts? I'm owed nothing.

I went out to do a bit of shopping and needed some Advocados however by the time I reached where they were my hands were so flippin cold I couldn't even feel them properly to see if they were ripe.  A chap standing next to me was doing the same thing and I happened to mention I was having trouble as my hands were cold so he kindly offered to feel the Adocados for me.  Best offer I had all day😁  In fact the only offer🤣

🤣 Well actually it didn't end there - about 5 minutes later I bumped into the same chap at the bread counter...he very kindly insisted that I get my harvest grain sliced - medium of course -  before getting his numerous loaves sliced - who said chivalry was dead😁

 

I then popped into the M & S food hall to get a few bits - no I didn't bump into the same chap, maybe he doesn't do M & S😁However, when I was paying at the checkout, the chap at the till suddenly complimented me on my eyelashes saying how long they were and were they mine especially the lower ones, and asked me what I did to keep them that long😁  I confirmed they were indeed mine😁   I would point out there was no one behind me waiting in a queue ha ha.

M&S Food Hall is where I squeeze my avocados. It's never too cold in there . . . except for the frozen food section.

Yes I sometimes get them in there and correct never too cold in there.  The only thing I won't buy in there again is a fresh cauliflower as the last time I got one in there, when I got it home and cut it open there was an enormous slug in there😮  I know these things happen with fresh food and I'm all for extra protein and all that but now I check them rigorously before buying and tend to get one with less green leaves around it, silly I know but......😄

I spent a good part of my day cuddling and playing with nine 3 week old labrador puppies.  Nothing better to soothe the soul.

Little doggies is best. Little people are cute too.

I've been out early lately walking to my cat-sitting jobs in the Village and I see little kids (probably kindergarten age) being taken to school. Lots and lots are being taken by their dads. I do love it when kids have good fathers. Hooray for good parenting.

That didn’t happen much in our generation, Paulette. The lines were drawn more sharply.  But I saw my son and my sons-in-law take way more active rolls. Give baths, change diapers, and other things, all the help I wish I could have had.

Standard for the 50s and 60s, my father and my friends' fathers were all pretty much hands off with the kids.  I was much more hands on with my two.  Did as much diaper changing  as their mom, did most of the cooking and laundry and plenty of cleaning....but I would say that most of my childhood male friends were similar to me with doing a lot more then their dads.  I think everyone is better off for it!  Of course one big difference, is that today most wives/moms I know, work full time too.
