    Maybe you should invest in one of these. No more towel issues!

    I can still remember one of the worst "in trouble" moments I ever got into was after doing this. My dad wore white dress shirts to work and my mom started ironing them and they came out multicolored as I had done that wax paper thing with crayons and gotten it all over the bottom of the iron.

    That was pretty much what I meant; I'd just be very careful, especially as a person living alone, about letting such a person know where I lived, etc. for quite a long time. You don't have to reject the whole idea of being a mentor or supporter, but the plan of bringing her to your home was what bothered me so much; I'd move very, very slowly on that part.

    I have to laugh at that a little bit. Obviously some of you don't live in as small a town as I do. Where I live, everyone knows where everyone else lives, and probably what they had for breakfast too.

    Oh I can definitely relate to that. None of the drivers in this small town ever bother using their turn signals as they assume you already know where they're going.

    Since you mentioned turn signals, this is not confined to small towns. It happens everywhere....I have even observed police cars not using their turn signals. A fine example for the young drivers!! Sure would save a lot of gasoline if we didn't have to sit waiting to wonder what these folks are going to do. JMHO.

    I think turn signals are actually illegal in Metro Atlanta; fines to be doubled if you aren't on the phone when you get stopped.

    What is a turn signal? Is that one of those car myths like 'you need to change your summer air for winter air in your tires' or 'blinker fluid'?

    No no no no no -- a "turn signal" is some kind of sign from above (or some of us - below) that your windshield washer fluid is going to "turn bad"
