ON THE BACK BURNER

August 15

I noticed that I am doing something that I don't like. When someone gives me a compliment on what I am wearing, I say something like"I got it at Goodwill" or "it came from LLBean". Who cares? I don't need to say anything except "Thank you". I will work on saying "Thank You" and move on. I've always loved second hand clothes. My Mother would be insulted if anyone offered me a dress or coat that their kid had worn. I was the youngest of the cousins, so I never got anything from them,either. And not from my sister who was 8 years older. I have passed this love of second hand clothes on to my kids. Some go high end and shop ebay for their name clothes. Some bring an extra suitcase when they visit me. Our Goodwill's in Venice are the best. I know. I've shopped Goodwill in 4 states. Go Venice. Go Goodwill.

Leona, you always look so nice, I also had to learn to say thank you when I was told I look nice. Not I got it on sale in where ever. We have so much in common.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
