And, yes, another new post heading. I’m stretching things out to keep from being stale or too strict on myself. With Word Wednesday, all are welcome to play along and use the word in a sentence in comments…if you are so inclined. ~Vic

    I will, and always will be obstinate. Sounds like a good senior saying under your picture.

    At least I’m good at something.

              Ken’s been binge watching BBC America…Planet Earth II & Wonderstruck nature shows. David Attenborough.

                  Hey. The entire 12 years I was with my ex-Marine, he did all the cooking. I did bake. When I moved in with Ken, I taught myself how to cook. Ken can heat soup, warm up stuff and make a sandwich. That is pretty much it.

                  I tried cooking like the ex-Marine but, he made big batches of stuff for us to eat all week. That didn’t work with Ken. Ken doesn’t do leftovers. He also developed into a bit of a junk food junkie while a cop. Hazard of the job… So, I make things like a fast food joint…only with better ingredients.

                  I got spoiled by the ex-Marine. I know how Jen feels.

                  We catch Adam-12 on MeTV.

                    As you know a junk food habit is also a hazzard of IT. I have done pretty well so far…trying new things….when you are stuck inside… you mess with hamburger and other things to change the taste.

                    Adam 12 is super…I thought it was just a kids show…nope…heroin, hookers, and rapists. It can be intense.

                      When we were watching last week, I was shocked to realize that Kent McCord was quite a bit younger than Martin Milner. Hey. It gave rise to shows like Starsky & Hutch (which I loved).

                      Adam-12 always reminds me of my ViewMaster when I was a kid. I had them, Peanuts and Barbie.

                      A junk food habit is a product of a lunch hour and an 8 to 5 job (or longer). Who can cook and eat a meal in an hour? Who can cook and eat a meal after a 10 or 12 hour shift? A hundred years ago, women were home (except Flappers…LOL!) and cooked. Once women entered the workforce, en masse (not just for WWII), that gave rise to more & more restaurants (and latch-key kids).

                      They did the show right… Jim comes up as a rookie and they do it really well…mentioning things in the later seasons that happened in the beginning.
                      I was a latch key kid and you were also right?
                      With IT you are working on a problem and you want to munch.
                      Yea it’s all changed now. I try to help out as much as possible but since she works at home she does the most…my drive everyday…when everything is normal kicks my butt…but now I’m trying since I’m here also.

                      Elementary school, I road a bus to a church for an after-school program. Middle school? Damn. I don’t even remember how the hell I got home. LOL! The first half of my ninth year, I was dropped at a classmate’s house to catch the bus to school (our ninth year was really weird) and I stayed with them after school until my mom got me. The second half, we moved across town (she remarried) and the bus dropped me off at my driveway. Ditto the first half of my sophomore year. After that, we moved back across town and I caught rides with classmates but, I do recall my mom picking me up, some, at high school. Funny how I only remember some of it. She must have taken a late lunch to get me on some days.

                      I never drove to school. I didn’t get a car until college. My paternal GM paid my child support as my dad was largely unemployed in the early 80s.

                      I remember eating at my desk, a lot, when engrossed in programming.

                      My mom and dad were divorced so mom was a single divorced mom in the 70s…she worked multiple jobs so I would come home and make myself a sandwich. My sister was sometimes home sometimes not.

                      I rode that damn bus…I was the first to get on and the last to get off. The bus driver for some damn reason went the opposite way in the afternoons.

                      I swore I would not let my kid ride the bus…and he didn’t. That is one childhood promise I made. He wanted to one day so we let him…that lasted one day lol.

                      I did drive when I was 16 to school and never ever rode a bus after that.

    I commented earlier…did it vanish?

      Nope. It’s above. Also not in the panel but, I saw it in Admin.

        It’s been a little better today. Other people were saying the same thing.

    I think I’m more vexing than obstinate.

    Is it possible to be obstinate about being obstinate? If so, that is me.

    And you can’t change my mind about it.

      LOL! That works. Sure.

    You’ll love this, there’s a children’s book called “Oscar, the Obstinate Osprey” written by a lady in Delaware, about a picky-eating Osprey. 😝
