Pamela: not in the least Mom Frances: Oh, dear. You did Pamela: last I checked, at least there was still a path Pamela: well - sort of : ) Dr.D.: Clutter is ColecoVision game carts all over. Filth is last week's supper dishes all over.

Pamela: and you wonder why I don't have kids Judy? Frances: My Richard and Pam's Russell are both hoarders Dr.D.: You can get some pretty nifty things from kids by trading clean-up with them... Judy: I see!!! Dr.D.: Pack-rat-ism. Frances: will it work on husbands? Defined in Comox: some body call my name? Pamela: how's this for the pot calling the kettle black though - currently, I'm sitting at the computer surrounded by about ten loads of laundry, a pile of empty boxes, a drying rack, luggage and ten years worth of accumulated craft stuff Frances: no but do you have a bad conscience? Dr.D.: I could answer that...not sure I ought to here :-) Pamela: (not to mention the hundreds of books!) Dr.D.: (replying to the "work on husbands?" comment) Judy: time for a throw out session Dr.D.: Your trash is my treasure :-) Defined in Comox: doesn't work around here Pamela: well Judy, the books stay no matter what - after all, I am my parents daughter : ) Frances: I think I mentioned that I've been doing housecleaning Pamela: the boxes will go with Kimberly Defined in Comox: I give away an LC 475, and in comes a Mac II ci Pamela: the laundry will get washed (soon I hope, because I'm running out of things to wear) Dr.D.: Law of conservation of retrocomputers, Ron.

Judy: they have a ton of Christmas trees to decorate Pamela: ooooh, strange mental picture Rich BobS: WORK SUCKS Defined in Comox: ya got that right pilgrim Dr.D.: BUT STARVATION BLOWS ENOUGH TO EQUALIZE THE PRESSURE Pamela: I concur, Bob Defined in Comox: well put Dr. D. Defined in Comox: but maybe Einstein's unified field theory can solve that too Judy: yes, the garden has a Christmas tree display of trees from around the world Dr.D.: (some anonymous graffito seen 25 years ago) Frances: get to be a senior citizen, then you can twiddle your thumbs - as long as you have a wife, of course Dr.D.: haha Dr.D.: or maybe not haha Pamela: current evidence to the contrary Mom? Defined in Comox: I'm in that netherland between 55 and 65 Judy: talk about Large trees and all real Dr.D.: Pam, don't let your Mom crack up. Defined in Comox: too old to work, too young to be a senior Pamela: I'm assisting in holding her together Rich Frances: I am being well daughtered Dr.D.: I can send duct tape if you like.
