So, I was whiling away perfectly good minutes to do paperwork in by looking at corgi videos, including several about barking.

Soon the dogs on both sides of my 1/2 duplex, the one on the other side of the center wall, and the one in the duplex ten feet away, started in with the barking..

My computer sound isn't all that loud but they must pick it up...

@ossobuco,
I've been smiling for three days every time I remember this conversation:

The other night my little niece and I were playing with one of my parent's nativity scenes - moving the figures and sheep and cows around and she asked me, 'Do you know who this is?' picking up Mary. I said, ' I do - do you?'
She answered - 'This is Mary. She's the mudder (mother),' (she's four and has a very pronounced south Jersey accent).
Then she picked up the figure of Joseph and says very confidently and matter-of-factly, 'This is Joseph. But I don't really know what he's doing here because God is the REAL father.'

@Mr Nice,
The woman I went over to talk to at the UPS store smiled at me, and me at her. I figured out that I can send US mail through there - I hadn't known that and it's kept me from selling books on amazon for a few years. Yes, it is a fee, but it is better for me than (once I get selling on amazon) driving every day or every other day approx five miles to the post office. When my eyes were deteriorating, I didn't want to do that even if the vision was 'ok'. Now my vision is wonderfully sharp, but I'm still uninterested in going to a post office so far away. I was spoiled by my earlier life with post offices within walkability.

This could work. And if it works, I can both divest and accrue some bill paying money. Very freeing.

@Mr Nice,
Mr. Nice, have you talked with your neighbor or other neighbors?

I've spent years of my life with no contact with neighbors, and other years with good contact with them, which I prefer. Once in a while, I or we had troublesome neighbors - but that was less usual.

@JPB,
Thanks, J. It's like letting a rope break, in a way.
Now I have to act and since I'm used to being a slug for a while, it'll take gearing up, but I am tapping into memories of being my old self.

We'll see what the mix of despond and enthusiasm brings, but I'm liking it. What did they used to call it? Attitude adjustment?

I smiled a lot today.

Some of you will know that recently (via FaceBook) a very good friend from high school & I were amazingly reunited. We have kept in touch since, talked a great deal - email & telephone contact ....

Today (a very hot & sticky day in the city of Melbourne) we met again. And spent a wonderful afternoon wandering around the art gallery (how exciting to find another person who actually finds real pleasure in this! As opposed to the good souls kindly obliging me. Smile ) We had lunch (Indian) at Southgate. Outside, by the river.

All through this we talked & talked & talked & talked ... catching up on many years ... about LIFE (of course! ) & death, what we had experienced, husbands & lovers, achievements & failures, children (in her case), our mothers & our fathers ... on & on ... The things that mattered.

All in all, it was pretty good! Very Happy
