Stingy or Frugal?

Growing up it was the family joke the way my Mother was very thrifty. As a lot of people were who were brought up during the depression or rationed during WWII. Only I called it "stingy" and "tight". For instance, after slightly using a paper towel, she'd carefully hang it up to dry so she could later re-use it. We weren't poor by any stretch of the imagination. I guess you'd call us middle-class. Now that I'm much older, I'm kinda glad that I retained some of her unique frugality. It's helpful when you try to live on a budget and raise a family. Thanks, Mother. I learned a lot from you about being thrifty. But I do have my limits. At least I haven't re-used any paper towels


Have you girls ever had quadra-boobs? [Guys are thinking, 'Yes, quadra must mean "four". So it's gotta be a good thing, right?'] It's when you put on a bra and it's the one that's too small on you. You end up with 2 little boobs popping up over the top of your bra....piggy-backing on the big ones. No, four boobs are not a good thing. Well, not in my neighborhood.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
