I have an outdoor cat that disappeared for 7 weeks

A few years ago. I was sure he was dead. One day he turned up walking in the yard, skinny and dehydrated. I don’t know which of us was happier. Soon got back his health and weight. I guess he had been trapped in a storage unit. Don’t know how he survived. Cats are amazing. Now he’s at my back door, 2nd floor deck. He was neutered as a kitten and this makes 10 years I’ve been taking care of him. Never give up on kitties.

Yes, TNNurse. "Blood on the Tracks" is when I fell in love.

Sadly, my boyfriend is now deceased. I still cry when I hear “Tangled up in Blue” and “Simple Twist of Fate”. I hear Otis Redding and I’m back in college. Aretha’s “Natural Woman”. Got into jazz after seeing Miles Davis at the Hollywood Bowl open for Blood Sweat and Tears. All of the great R&B when I was in high school. I was at Woodstock. When it comes to music, we were the luckiest generation. Don’t know how I would have survived without it.

That's my grocery store!

Janssen’s In Greenville, De. I’ve seen him around the neighborhood a lot. One Christmas Eve I went into the bank and he was there giving presents to all the tellers. I can’t help but love Joe and Jill.

Mine too. Eastern Shore of Va.

My mom was just a baby. My grandmother was so sure she was going to die that she gave her baby to a cousin. Fortunately she recovered and my mom grew up with a mother and father.

Yes. We weren't allowed to swim anymore in the State Park with the Cypress tree pond.

I was born in 1949 and remember getting the Salk shot, 2nd grade, I think. We also couldn’t play in the rainwater in the ditch before that. I remember the kids who had to walk with braces and how the vaccine wiped out those fears. I also remember that everyone had to take it. This is why the younger people can think of it as ancient history. We thought we’d seen the last of measles, too

Good job, jberryhill. I thought it was anger at the German girl who dropped the baton

In the relay and at Jesse Owens. Parkinson’s, huh, like an ordinary human, not a such master race after all.
