    Josh & Anna Smuggar: A Series of Unfortunate Events

    Kendra and Joe moved out of that cute cabin they decorated nicely?

    I am still going with that she tops off every "rock star" item with a bag of Fritos.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I have to chime in re: the weather. It can never be too hot, too sunny, too humid for me. I think I am defective! I thrive in hot weather when I am sweaty. I feel energized. One time in the other house in Baton Rouge, in the middle of summer, I went into the attic. It was very hot. I started dripping sweat and the longer I was up there the better I felt. Mr. lookeyloo checked on me and I said, "I feel great, I think I am moving up here". He said "you are insane". Maybe. I used to walk for several hours in the middle of the summer heat, towel and water bottle in tow. I felt great when I got home, cooled down and showered. In the winter I can't get warm sometimes. I lie in the bed and ask Mr. lookeyloo if I am still alive, because even with blankets and pajamas, there is no warm spot under me. Really. Like a ghost! Can't walk here because it is too hilly. In Baton Rouge it is flat as a pancake. I am hypothyroid, but, all my numbers are in the normal range. I have always liked warm weather, even as a child growing up in NJ. I felt like I was born in the wrong place. The sunny, humid south is perfect for me.

    That's just what my oldest son did. Found a local girl. They love the weather. I only like it in the summer. We go other times of year but it is a struggle. Dark a lot and misty and/or cold. Not for me.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I think our resident OB/GYN said that hair coloring isn't an issue anymore. Am I remembering correctly? I guess she would have to avoid fumes if there are any for heavy processing? I use box color so unfamiliar with anything else.

    Yes. I said it is our tradition. Not that is goes across the board. I think in the way back years it was much more common
  7. So if Jessa thinks she is happy, is she really happy? I guess I would say unless she has internal dialogue with herself (not likely, but possible) she is happy enough with her situation. I *think* I am happy in my life. But, am I really? Y'all might look at it and say "what's wrong with her, she can't be happy in her life".

    Josh & Anna Smuggar: A Series of Unfortunate Events

    Funny you should mention - in first mr lookeyloo's family, he has a cousin named Harold. We are friendly with him and his wife and child. It is an old fashioned name for sure, and he is in his late 70s, but, names are personal and we shouldn't make fun of anyone's name. Some will have a harder life with their names (Spurgeon?) but they are stuck with them or coming up with a nickname. Well maybe Spurgeon won't if he doesn't go out into the real world. There could be a story behind it. I don't like a lot of names I hear, but, not my place to say anything, since obviously, my choice of name for my first son was criticized.

    I don’t mind the bows. When my granddaughter was little my daughter in law had her in a bow all the time. They live south of Seattle and there was not a bow to be had- even at Nordstrom. Luckily for her I lived in the Deep South and we had a bow store! I would bring lots of them with me. Granddaughter is 16 now, has a nicely shaped head, no damage, and hasn’t worn. Owe in a long time. I still live in the south, different city, but here bows are very very popular.

    Yes that’s what I was trying to say. There are outliers here and there but other than my first mother in law trying to take over, it seems to have worked out for our family at least. We named my oldest son after my grandpa and when a stranger heard the name, said “what kind of name is that for a baby?” In a horrified tone. I was taken aback and said “he will only be a baby for a while and then a grown up”! His name is Nathan and he is 52 and guess what. He loves his name and has never gone by any nickname. Even as a little boy if people called him Nat or Nate he would look at them and say “my name is Nathan”. So every family has its naming issues I guess.

    That is too bad. My first mother in law insisted she name our children. Of course she didn’t. No one in our family exerted any pressure and we all seem happy with our names and who we are named for. Different experiences I guess.

    Former Hosts: PERSONAL Life After The View

    I don't know what Mr. Wallace is like, but, this guy must have a magic trick! I watch her show just about every day and when he is on, I remain perplexed about the connection.

    I make quilts. Fabric is very expensive as is thread and batting. Plus the hours upon hours to take large pieces of fabric, cut it all apart, and then sew it back together. Then quilt it and bind it. I really do enjoy it but have never thought about selling anything because no one would want to pay for even the materials, let alone my labor. I do gift some people, but, only if they are "quilt worthy" and I won't find the quilt in a dog bed or under the car while changing the oil!!!

    You would hate our Jewish tradition where it is customary to name new children after a deceased relative. I am named for my grandmother that I never met. I think some of the younger generations are getting away from it, but not all. All three of my grandchildren are named for deceased relatives, the youngest for my father who passed while my daughter in law was pregnant.

    Slightly? Haha. we used to love to watch him and Cokie and Sam on This Week - George would weave a very interesting discussion starting with "the founding fathers" - we enjoyed all his long winded discourses although we rarely agreed with him. Interesting man.
