redneckmodern & laila... Every other post on AT is about a specific product. Isn't that the point?

Dogs are too much like children. Give me children and cats any day. (BTW, how did you get that picture of my cat (top right) on my new carpet...?)

"no scent at all except for wetness"... Is that bad? I would love that!

Bamboo and I saw an example of this product on an evening walk in the neighborhood... The "fence" we saw needed a little upkeep, but we could see the potential... Much better than some other options...

Watch TV most nights, but I justify it by doing something else at the same time - knitting, paperwork, reading magazines, etc. Also always have a book in progress for reading before bed.

Oh, I thought of another one... When I was first married, my father-in-law was worried that neither of us would ever wake up in the morning. So he rigged up what we used to call the fire alarm to an alarm clock. It was one of those metal bells against which an arm bangs. The worst sound in the morning ever! It would literally cause us to leap out of bed in shock. Needless to say, that didn't last long - I guess we just learned to get up on our own... like grown-ups.

I once attended a boarding school, and my room overlooked the front courtyard, my bed right by the window. One night a man in the neighborhood was sleepwalking and woke up in the courtyard - right under my window! The poor man temporarily (I hope) lost his mind and starting screaming. I was so terrified when I awoke that I couldn't even open my eyes to see what was going on. Even though that seems like a hundred years ago, the thought of that scream still gives me goosebumps today...

A 'Big Band' band practices at the corner church on Sundays. It's fun to sit outside on summer evenings and listen. One time, they even invited the neighbors to a rehearsal.

I walk in the neighborhood every day, and I enjoy the different wind chimes I pass...

I noticed the neighbors out on the porch - sitting and talking... Wow. This might be good for all of us - talking, playing games, communicating, meditating, music, love... We best do this on a regular basis...

Ha ha... You haven't lived 'til you've washed dishes in the bathtub! I went through a kitchen remodel that spanned... months? years? ...and I can't ever remember cooking (including coffee) in the bathroom, though. I think we just cooked/brewed in the rubble...

These are cute. I find the bathroom is a nice place for a little tropical plant...

I sleep with it open, because somehow that makes me feel like I have control over anything that might happen in the rest of the house at night... Besides, my cats would be really, really sad if I closed the door...
