At 7 weeks old, Mauka weighed 13 lbs. I called her Baby Huey. She was only a lap dog for a couple of weeks before she got too big. As a precious puppy, she enjoyed chewing on things. The walls, furniture, my shoes, my watches, my reading glasses, wooden spoons, etc. I could have decorated a 8 foot Christmas tree with all the things she chewed up.. bless her little heart. I wasn't afraid she would eat us out of house and home but that she would EAT the house and home. Thank Gawd, she finally outgrew the chewing ( well most of it anyway. At least she is paid for :)
Not looking for a dating relationship. I deleted my Facebook account due to all the drama and political wars going on there. I just want to have a place to go to share laughs, talk about serious things and off-the-wall stuff. Seeking friends in this crazy place called the internet. Come sit on the front porch and drink a cold one.
Hoping to find some way of filling my day I am widow my husband of 18 years has passed away and it is hard to start over
Hi all. I've had dogs of all breeds for many years and find it hard to believe our governments still ignore the professionals when it comes to the restricted dog's list. I am petitioning the Irish government to change the restricted dogs from 10 breeds to deeds. Please support https://www.change.org/Deednotbreed [email protected] Thank you
Hello, I'm not sure what to do! I was in West Yorkshire for 44 years and moved to a small town on the Northumberland coast 6 years ago. I used to have a caravan up here for holidays and it seemed like the right thing to do at the time. Not to grow old in a big city. Now I miss the buzz and mix of different people in the city. I used to enjoy singing in big choirs and enjoyed the free organ recitals and Town hall concerts and brass bands. I really miss the potential company of like minded people. It is very insular here and all attempts at joining things or volunteering have failed, partly due to health issues of anxiety and depression. I have no family near. My daughter and son are both 3 hour journeys away in opposite directions. I like driving and have a good car and golden retriever Ted who is my trusty friend. The advantages are the large beaches so as I need a lot of my own space it's good. The climate is cold and I miss wearing summer clothes. I'm always in winter clothes here. The move here was exhausting on my own and it was hard in early December. No one seemed to have time to befriend me, with one exception, a good lady from a local church. However I do value the fact that I can say hello to people around the town, at least after a while at least your face gets known! I miss woods and trees and parks and shelter. When the wind is strong and cold people don't tarry so there is little chance to chat on a dog walk. In Leeds dog walking was much more a social part of my life. Here it is solitary and I have become solitary and lost confidence socially. Maybe just that I don't feel there are people I want to befriend. There are a lot of married couples who've retired here and they socialise in couples. I'd love to be able to volunteer some way in the world of woodland, birds, animal rescue, to be usefully occupied with like minded people and milder weather. I don't have a lot of money as I spent a lot on moving here and down sized. My house has not increased in value, so when I look at houses in Leeds I could only afford to live in rough areas. So I do nothing and fear I'm wasting my life just treading water. No one to discuss these things with. So thanks for reading this. I love canals and miss towpaths though at present I value the wide open space on the beaches and in many ways the pandemic has had little effect on my social isolation! I would value any objective views. I am a fit [I think] 71 year old divorced woman.
Hello, I'm looking for advice and possible options. My mother and father in law are selling there house in Kent and moving to Cornwall to retire and be closer to family. We are really stuck with what they should do, mid 50's and mid 60's Do they, rent, buy, or buy a lodge/caravan on a residential site. Its such a big move and dont want to put money into something that might possibly be the wrong decision so would like some positive advice. Thanks
I have not received payment for this years winter fuel allowance. On the 7th December I received £10.00, why I do not know. I have sent three emails asking for the payment but no answer yet.
I am 82 and home alone with 2 dogs and enjoy hiking, snowshoeing in my woods of 40 acres. I lost my wife to the Nursing Home two years ago with total dementia where she no longer knows anyone including me and she lost her ability to speak. I stay busy to move on with my life to keep from getting depressed. I enjoy fishing, hunting and hiking while birding and taking photos of birds.
Hi, moved to Ireland many moons ago and retired early about 3 years ago. My wife is not 100%, I'm looking to widen a circle of friends and join a few clubs with my limited free time. Any ideas???
I am new to Silversurfers and astronomy, something I took up to relieve the monotony of shielding. Is there anyone else on here from the Durham area with an interest in astronomy and helping a newbie get to grips with the hobby?
