    I feel for you, mine are weather induced. Summer and storms are the worst - I put an ice pack on my neck when I know we have a storm rolling in..

    Schools are closed again today, due to icing on non-major roads.

    I awoke with a vicious allergy attack....itchy and runny eyes, runny nose, sneezing. Interestingly enough, it left just like it showed up....out of nowhere. I fought taking an allergy pill since that would mean me being asleep, more so than not, until noon tomorrow. I am not in the mood for that. I guess I could make myself feel 100% better by using my neti pot, but my laziness has taken control of my good senses.

    (Besides, I'm busy catching up on shows I recorded but have not watched over the past 2 nights!)

    Happy Mardi Gras, y'all! This is the COLDEST Mardi Gras I can remember. I still have ice on my porch, deck, and trees and it's well after noon. This weather is nuts!

    Pikachu, I hope your grandmother is doing well.

    Sorry to hear of these sinus and allergy problems. So far, I'm okay.

    I ran across this video that made me laugh. I like the little boy at the end who loves the rotary phone. Says he loves classics. lol

    That was cute. I remember the first time I ever saw a push button phone and tried to use it. I thought it was too confusing and would never catch on.
    Count your blessings!

    For awhile in the 1960's my grandparents had a PARTY LINE. Have you ever heard of that? Several people shared a phone line. You had to pick up the phone and make sure your neighbor wasn't on the phone before placing your call! Each home on that line had a unique ring, such as two short, one long so you knew who the call was for! You could easily eavesdrop on other's calls.

    Yes! We had a party line when I was little. On ours each line rang only in it's own home, so no hearing other people's rings. We did have the issue of having to make sure the neighbor(s) wasn't on the phone. Also, when we were on the phone we'd hear the other parties pick up the line checking. Sometimes quite often. Sometimes they'd even say something rude.

    When my older siblings got into their teens & I was getting close, it became apparent to my parents that we had to have our own line instead of shared. Sooner or later the neighbors would have torched our house with a family full of teens using the phone. As it is we were constantly after each other about needing the phone & the other "hogging" it.
    No 2 lines for our family.

    We had a party line until the mid 60's. I remember my mother telling my sisters to not talk on the phone so much.
    There's no place like home!

    When I was growing up, we had a six-party line. When I was about in 4th grade, we got a two-party line, and a few years later got a private line.
