  4. Bill,

    I bet your wife makes sure your underwear isn't as old as me!  My dad likes to golf.  Did you know that my mom went to a Catholic high school?  She had Sister's as teachers too.  I like vanilla ice cream with apple pie.  I hope you do your job well, and keep your wife happy, but you should stop smoking!

    Thanks for doing my meme,
    Pumpkin and Mom

  12. Dear Bill, I really appreciate the comments that you leave in my journal. I keep waiting for you to post something new in yours. Somehow, I suspect that you have many interesting thigs to say and tales to tell.--Sheria

  13. Hey bill...I just read your comment to another jlander about your deaf granddaughter.  I have a deaf son who is now 17 and was deaf since birth.  Do they know what caused her hearing loss?  

  14. Thanks for the link Bill.  Hope you post again now and then.  As for alerts disappearing, you would be surprised.  I have had many things disappear from aol over the years including journal buttons so I could not do an entry even if I wanted to.  Have a happy weekend.

  15. Hadn't got an alert from you for a long time. Glad to see this one. I've been retired almost 18 months now Bill.  I'm still paying for Dental ins thru Cobra from the healthcare system.  Last payment is due August 1st which signals 18 months. It seems like forever on one hand and only yesterday on the other. Take care and have a good weekend.  Linda in sunny & warm Washington state
