I am so sorry that happened to you; you’re not paranoid, you are in touch with reality. I have had the same experience several times, starting when I was 5 and my mother woke up in the night to stop a strange man carrying me out the window. There were a few ugly incidents as an adult, including being abducted by a man who told me he had killed five women; a man who knocked me down during the day on a city street and dragged me toward an alley and started ripping my clothes off while people walked by and ignored my cries for help (including a man whose pants leg I grabbed); and the time a guy knocked on my apartment door and said he was my new neighbor and wanted to introduce himself, only he wasn’t my new neighbor and that’s not why he was there. Incredibly, I managed to get away each time. So many women I know had even worse things happen. Please take care of yourself, and I wish you the best. All you women, please be careful.
Happy Birthday to you!
Back in my younger days, I never, ever questioned a boot or shoe sale. I deserved every single pair of high heels or boots I purchased. Now I only wear Crocs, and I do love my Crocs.
My family were firm believers in homemade gifts, and since we all did it, we really appreciated the hard work, skill, and hours of time involved.
The sad part is the number of people who did not do hand work who would sneer and comment on how cheap we were to make gifts instead of buying them.
I had to look up who that was. Thanks for the reminder.
Your Mom is so beautiful. I think the cash she won works out to about $10,000 in today’s money. Not bad.
I had a fur coat from Dicker & Dicker many years ago. They were actually known for high quality items.
Wow, so much emotion here. I am so sorry for the loss of Frodo, and wish much happiness with the new furries.
Happy Birthday! Age is a number. I am 71 and I have never been healthier and happier.
Happy Birthday to Mom!
I walk everywhere, except when traveling for vacations — oh, wait, pandemic, so no vacations (sigh). Other than that, I took a bus in July 2020 to see a museum exhibit. I haven’t owned a car in almost 20 years.
