    Careful with that. I got bounced out of a church for accepting hugs. Seems it’s no longer politically correct for a male to do so, since that is one of the “signs of being a ‘groomer’.”

    Sad, that, especially for kids. They need all the positive reinforcement that they are lovable that they can get.

    It doesn’t matter. A swallow is a swallow. It uses up liquid.

    Our kids were SOOOO mad when we sold that place. We had 880 feet of frontage. The city was going to run utilities down the street at $1,100 a frontage foot. There was no way I could afford an assessment of >$3/4M, even with 10 years to pay it.

    It was rather sad. My wife’s family had lived there for 4 generations. But we just couldn’t afford the taxes and assessments any more. Now the 55 acres all are developed. 1/4 acre lots with $750k and up houses. Of course, part of that was not build-able – some of it is in flood plain. But about 35 acres of it was developed. So about 140 lots.

    And then the city opened a new street to access those. So the utilities runs on the frontage never happened. BOO! Still, we’re happy where we live now.

    My kids were raised on a farm property, with a creek running through the middle. They loved to go play in the water, splashing each other and making the bank soil wet (muddy). They would come home covered in mud. Then it was mud splashed from bikes, and grease. Then it was grease from cars. Etc.

    If there was dirt, they could and did find it.
