I have a glass repair company coming to the house tomorrow.  Thanks everyone for your advice and concern.  This gets me so mad, I just donít understand some people.

People are just stupid.  And there is like a zero chance they will be caught.  But with so many people with security cameras you would think somebody would have got a shot that would be useful to police.


We have cameras, but all we saw was a pickup stop in front of house and someone on passenger side roll down window and shoot.  Couldnít make out truck (it was a dark color) and couldnít make out shooters face.

Happy Father's day to all! Sorry to hear about your father, Nancy. Father's day is one of my favorite Holidays because all I ever wanted to do was to be a good father and now I am reaping the rewards of having two outstanding children. I hope that I live long enough to enjoy my grand children because I know my kids will carry on and do an even better job of parenting than I did (not to toot my own horn). I spent all day with the kids/wife (except two hours in the gym) and loved every single second of it. Sadly my son had to work at a restaurant on Sunday evening (he is raising extra school money) but we ended up going to his restaurant for dinner. The family bought me a three day pass for an upcoming concert and  two totally awesome t-shirts. I spent one day with each child, during the last two weeks, just driving around on their errands and enjoying my 1965 Jeep!


Iím so happy you had a good Fathers Day and got to spend it with your kids.

my dad passed on about 10 years ago from dementia..would have been 66 a couple of months later...dementia/alzheimers runs on my daddys side of the family

55 seems young to die from dementia.  That is a horrible disease.  There was a guy at the nursing home when my pappaw was there and he was upset (and it was the dementia) and as his wife rolled him by me to go eat he said "I didn't let that dog out.  They said I did but I didn't do it" and he was clearly upset.  I played right along.  I told him "I know you didn't.  That nurse down there done it.  I will go tell them you didn't do it and who done it"  And he was happy.  His wife looks at me and mouths "thank you".


My mother died from dementia, and it is a terrible disease to die from.  At the end she was non verbal, unable to walk, didnít know us, was totally incontinence.  She was in a nursing home on a special wing, and it was sad to see all the people with this disease.

I am kind of both. I have been married for over twenty five years and raised two beautiful children which was my primary goal in life. We have grown apart. I work approximately sixteen to eighteen hours a day and she has an aggressive tennis schedule in addition to working fifty hours a week. She has been on seven vacations this year (six without me) and has another four planned. I have been on one vacation, which I invited her to (and she complained about), with three planned. It seems that we lead separate lives. There is a lack of intimacy (through no lack of effort on my part). She appears to be much happier around everyone and everything than me. Every once in awhile I will see a glimmer of appreciation. I think that she sticks in there solely for keeping the children intact.


Tresbn, I am so sorry to hear that.  Unfortunately that does happen in some marriages.  I wish I had an answer for you, but this a choice you have to make.

Last night I didnít park in my garage, but kept the SUV in the driveway.  This morning when my husband went to get the paper he noticed my windshield cracked.  As he checked it out there was a BB gun hole in it.  Now I have to get a new windshield.  Talking to a neighbor down the street the same thing happened to them, so I guess someone had fun last night causing people to spend more money.  We have cameras, but we couldnít make out anything except it was a pickup.  We called the police, but thereís not much they can do.  I guess from now on, itís garage all the time.

Like someone else said, I married my best friend.  Heís Italian and Iím German so we have had our share of fights.  We have had good times and bad times, but we stuck it out.  As we got older, we both mellowed and now our fights are few.  We have two daughters.  I wanted more kids, but couldnít have any more.  Iím so glad I have a person I love and know he loves me back. 

I do not understand that.  What difference does it make what your heritage is as to whether or not you fight?  I have heard that a lot.  Just doesn't make sense to me.

Unless like where someone marries a person outside of their religion and they totally disagree on everything they believe in.  But I am not sure why you would do that.  I know people do because I have seen it.  It's like you aren't going to change them.  Any more than they are going to change you.


What I was trying to say (as a joke) he is Italian and people say they have quick tempers and German are suppose to be stubborn.  And we did marry with different religions he was brought up Catholic and I Lutheran, but that has never been an issue for us, or even the smallest fight.

I just answer honestly and if they do not like it they can kick me off.  I had a survey yesterday with those same 4 sodas and I answered that I heard of them all (I think most people have)



I probably had the same survey.  I heard of all the sodas and Iím sure everyone else has.  I said yes to all and was disqualified.  smh

I saw it but didn't try it.  Not interested in having to reach a certain level.
