    I love people who don't seem to mind sharing their height! I'll check down aisles looking for somebody (customer or employee) to help me out. I reciprocate the favor by helping out people on those motorized carts/scooters that I can see eyeing something out of their reach. Kind of like the circle of life!!

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    There is some (dubious) news about that young girl who was declared brain dead at an Oakland, CA hospital last year. I can not find the thread it was discussed on. I think it was named "You wouldn't do that to a dog." I've searched, but can't find it. If anyone knows where that discussion thread might be could you bump it for me?

    That girl just came across my mind yesterday, and I was wondering if anyone had any recent information. I'll look for the thread.


    BINGO!!

    At just under 5' tall, I often have to ask for the kindness of strangers to reach things for me. When they help, I always respond with, "Let me know if you need anything from any of these low shelves!"

    I was 5'8" before cancer treatment. Now I'm down an inch or so. I still have a huge wing span and big feet (size 10 before children - size 11 after). I always offer to help when needed. One time I couldn't reach the last container of a limited time ice cream flavor that was pushed way back on the top shelf of the freezer so I went to the pet section and got a litter scooper and used it to reach the desired ice cream. Feel free to borrow from my brain storm.

    I did that with a spatula to reach a can of Black beans. Even tall people need help every once in a while.

    I've done that. If a man and a woman (obviously married) are together, I'll ask the wife for permission to borrow her husband's long arms. Store employees may be hard to trap, but strangers wandering the aisles really are kind if you approach with a smile and a laugh.

    I saw some debris that was blocking some roads due to the earthquake in CA on tv today. Glad you guys are okay. I haven't heard of any injuries thank goodness.

    I have been in ONE earthquake and it was in NORTH CAROLINA. I know. It was the first one ever that people actually felt in our area. It covered a large part of the state and even in VA and DC. I just sat at my desk in complete confusion. I couldn't figure out why the building was shaking and things were ratttling on the walls and furniture.

    I've experienced a tremor or two in my time. One was at about 5:30 in the morning when I heard my son's bedroom door rattling. I awoke out of a dead sleep, assuming that one of my gurls had trapped in the room and I ran to open the door to let her out, since it would have been quite a while since she had relieved herself. I was confused when no kitty came out of the room; I turned and looked down the stairs, and saw 2 little heads with peaked ears looking at me, trying to see what was going on.

    You just never know what's going to happen next, anymore.

    My folks said the earthquake was a roller. Not bad if you're on the ground floor. A little disconcerting if you're higher up. Really though, most earthquakes aren't a big deal. I'll take them over a tornado or hurricane any day.
