Love, love those pictures! Couldn't help but smile!
My DIL loves this Walmart service, due to having 2 young toddlers.
I would pay for this pattern! Go for it!
This looks interesting! Have you tried (and liked) the technique?
It seems to me that you are really asking a different question. It is about being free to express your opinion. You obviously would like to keep the friendship. You should talk to your friend about your friendship. It is human nature that that people, even friends, will have different opinions and ideas. When there are differing opinions, it is also human nature to want to change the other person's mind. For some things, you might have to agree to disagree, because you both think the way you think.
But, that being said, I think she was being way too sensitive. (I guess, easy for me to say.) Almost all people would agree with you, including myself. Her belief is rather antiquated, maybe from her youth and/or upbringing. Surely, if she knew or was related to the victim, she would look at things differently.
Soooo, hopefully, you can continue your friendship, with understanding that sometimes you will disagree.
Please take action ASAP. I am afraid for your grandchildren. Perhaps your vet will report this dog to the proper authorities. I know it is difficult when dealing with family. However, if the dog attacks one of their children, they could be charged with a crime (knowing the dog has an attack history), and lose their kids. Please let us know what happens.
On this day in 1900, the deadliest natural disaster in US history struck Galveston, Texas.
A Category 4 hurricane brought 145-mph winds & a 15-foot tidal wave -- destroying 2500 buildings & killing 8,000 people.
The storm nearly leveled the fast-growing island port -- and Galveston never fully recovered. People and money began shifting to Houston.
I just read this from "Historybites." I am sure that there would be people who would disagree about Galveston, I wouldn't know. But the fact that 8000 people died when there were not the warning systems in place over 100 years ago, shows how far we have come. (PS: I did not check out this information, just read from Facebook.)
Perhaps the husband is the true hoarder, and the wife is an enabler, since she wants help and the husband doesn't.
That being said, this couple needs professional help. My husband, daughter and I once helped a lady (hoarder) clean out car, garage and some of the house. Even though she wanted help, she did not want anything thrown out. While one of us distracted her, the other two threw things away. We had no idea that it was as bad as it was. She cried (happy tears) when she saw her garage and car clear. The smell was still terrible, so we took the car to be cleaned, and scrubbed garage the best we could. Neighbors came over and thanked us, but we knew it was only a temporary measure. I was looking into who to contact to help her, when she fell shortly after that, then social services got involved. Actually she was a very nice person, and I think about her and miss her since she has passed away.
How about having them remade into something else?
I had my wedding dress from 40 years ago made into a Christening Outfit for my grandsons. If I ever have granddaughters, I also would have an outfit made out of my dress from my son's wedding for girls, maybe for a big family event and pictures. That could still happen, so I will hold on to the dress for awhile. I like the idea of the history behind it, and would hope the grandchildren would tell their children the story behind the christening outfits and possibly dresses someday.
In college, my roommates and I had a cat named "PBJ." (Peanut Butter and Jelly.)
Growing up, we had a dog named "Splinter." (Very little pup.)
Our family dog was named "Pirate." (Was a thief, but hated water.)
