Re. your ailing friend, if her daughter is generally abusive, you can report the situation to Department of Children and Families, who oversee abuses. Or check in your area for an elder abuse hot line. Yes, the lack of social contact is draining, but Ed and I managed to have dinner out last night as it was our wedding anniversary and my birthday. We took Sol with us -- it went well. xx, T

Know exactly what you're going through. We gutted and remodeled our kitchen 5 years ago. The living room was full of boxes for two months. But it will look great at the end. You must post photo of finished kitchen, yes?

I once saw a friend's cat (visiting) who looked into a tall mirror and slowly turned around with a quick twist at the end to catch the intruder. I don't know if the kitty knew he was looking at himself.

lovely post. In our are (SW Florida) people are wearing masks. I even see joggers wearing masks. THey're ignoring the president and our Republican governor. Your sci fi retrospective was interesting. I don't know if you are aware (I have written about it) that in the 50s and sixties, I knew, through my first husband, all the sci fi greats of the era. Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Theodore Sturgeon (my husband's roomie before I married him), William Tenn (Phil Klass's pen name. And I never met him, but L. Ron Hubbard was friends with my husband. The list is longer but these are the names at the top. Clarke always called when he was in New York and we'd have dinner.

Ed criticizes my cooking too -- thinks the chicken "is raw", eats a certain meal for years and suddenly wants to know why. I say, "yeah, I understood, good help is hard to get."

I access my ju ju on your behalf. Good news that the new med is helping Ted. I have recently experienced some depression, an anomaly in my life. I am using a personal system of talking to my unconscious mind and it is helping. Yeah, I'm odd.

I'm, so far, the energizer bunny who drums on while my dear ones go. And Ed is younger than me but has issues that could do him in. And today he left without his cell phone and that drives me up the wall.

I am sickened by his presidency and I foresaw it on election night. I was well aware of his incompetence and corruption when I lived in New York. We must prevail in the election.

Your patience is much appreciated. What a little martinet her daughter is. The nice thing about Florida store people is how helpful and nice they are. In New York City, not so much. It doesn't make up for brain dead political choices, but it' boggles my northern mind when one drops everything to be sure I'm getting what I need.

Edge perception is my problem too. I've finally gotten better at judging. I drive a 2009 Hyundai. Ed has a 2017 Toyota Highlander I am not allowed to drive. That's okay. I pronounce you man and car. Anyway, the electronics on new cars are daunting.

I love the dog.

I had to cut Ed's hair -- trust me shaggy in the older population is a no. I cut my own hair. When Ed was in rehab, a lovely woman came in and cut the hair of the residents.She did a great job. I got her number, thinking I would try her since she also works out of her home. That's all on hold now.
and then this virus thing hit.

When you have a neighbor with such poor impulse control, it is best not to tempt her into aberrant behavior. You could, however, keep a record of her harassment as a backstop should you ever need a legal defense.

At least you had a quick result. Some being tested are waiting for days. My best to you both.

I mostly order from Amazon and I do check reviews, but I have also read that positive reviews can be untrustworthy. I use my New York Times Credit Union Visa for all internet orders -- that way I have only one card to deal with if there is a problem. They are super about looking into a dispute and have always, so far, ruled in my favor. Love these people.
