Share Your World For 29 Aug 2022

Di is once again filling in for the recuperating Melanie. Melanie, hope we see you real soon.

Which of the following could you do without? TV, Computer, Mobile Phone. Definitely the TV. We’re tired of what little we watch of it.

Do you have a lot of old photographs in a box, or did you put them in albums? We don’t have many photos that aren’t digital, i.e. taken on a digital camera or scanned with the original discarded. They take up a lot of room…

What was the first thing you bought for yourself when you started work? A couple of suits. Remember, I started working back when “casual Friday” was just a dream. Now they’re happy as long as you have clothes on.

What is the biggest thing you have bought that did not require finance? Our van. We’ve had it over 20 years so far.

Ours is silver

GRATITUDE: From 1969, Sam and Dave…

  1. So true about the workplace dress code these days. I’m going to try to get away with sweats this winter. Nice sweats but still sweats. If they send me home oh well. I bet they’ll let me stay though.

  2. I could do without my phone. I have a home phone and that works out aok.
    I also bought a car but it was one for $3,600 not a new one.
    I have tons of boxes of old photos and plan to put them into albums and scrapbooks.
    Yes, I bought some new clothes for work and liked it.

    1. We gave up our landline almost ten years ago and haven’t missed it. I could conceivably get away without a phone if I had a tablet (i.e. an iPad), but I still have the desktop and the laptop that work almost as well.

    1. Hondas are excellent vehicles. A friend of mine told me that, if you do all the routine maintenance, they last pretty much forever. My Accord lasted over 20 years before we donated it, and it’s probably still on the road. We don’t put many miles on them: the Accord has 120K miles on it, and I don’t even think we’ve reached 40K on the van.
