Probably not the best idea to base anything on what's on TV. Not sure where you live but where I live we treat others as we would want to be treated. We don't have a need to dominate anyone. We help each other, and by that I mean we do what needs to be done without assigning gender to each task or keeping score.

Sounds like a good way to live. I hope I didn't lead you to believe I base either my life or views of other people's lives on TV. My theory though is that if I see a concept on a sitcom or the news, its probably not a successful strategy. On the topic of TV, you do have to wonder how much of TV is art imitating life, or just as scary how much of life is starting to imitate art.

I don't really spend alot of time watching tv. Seems like a big waste of time. I'd much rather experience life for myself rather than watch someone elses concept of it.

The creepiest thing happened yesterday regarding my missing cat. We assumed she was killed by a big tomcat that's been beating up all of the outside kitties. She'd been gone for days and we'd written her off. Right after I posted the message about her, I went outside to get some tomatoes from the garden...and there she was. Not a scratch on her.

Not a dry eye in the house after that.

Anywho, thank you, kitty guardian angels.

I'm glad your kitty came home safe. Sometimes they just need a vacation. I think they take little trips like that just to check out what the neighbors are feeding their cats.

I think I do.

Isn't what was discussed people skills?

I really don't think that men or women often want all the things they say they want. We want others to set limits for us, and others want us to set limits for them. Which is why I would never tell a amn to surrenderall to his wife.

I will not allow limits set on me by anyone,no exceptions.I'm not about to let someone else decide what it takes to be me. I also don't want to be responsible for anyone elses life. If your an adult then you know what the limits are. IMO, No one should surrender to anyone else unless thats what they want to do, in which case, I don't see it as surrendering so much as I see it as just agreeing.

That is good to hear. I don't know the age of your cat; if she is still around when she dies, you can give her a proper memorial. I regret not being able to do that for Sunset when she disappeared in November.
