Here are three live statues that stood "sitting on air" at the Purim festival, on the main pedestrian street.

Re, opening tight jar lids, I run the top, the rim of the jar under a tap of not too hot water and find that usually does the trick, the lid then turns - snaps off easy... ;)

....ha ha, dont talk to me about botched hair colours...I used to have envious " natural " blond hair, when at lunchtime at home one time from school in my young teens, I found a discarded red bottle in our dustbin and you guessed it, yes I experimented  just to see how my hair would look, bright orange...When I went back to school, my punishment was to be sent straight back home, I remember the rest of the class laughing...

Over the years mainly my 20's, I often had hairdresser perms then straight on top at home I would put a dark brown " permanent " hair colour on top, the one thing we are not supposed to do, my scalp often burnt...And yes, once I home bleached it soon after a perm and people remarked on the green tint in my hair...

Marilyn, I agree that you need to make memories while you can. It must seem like you're losing him a little bit everyday.  That is one of the reasons we want to get John's sister to the wedding. I'm sure it will be the last time she sees all of them. She's not as bad as K yet, but she does't know what day it is either and has very poor short-term memory.  I did find out we could fly her direct from Des Moines to Evansville, which would make it an easier trip for her. I also found out that we can get a direct flight from CLT to Evansville. I was really surprised by both. I also found out that Milly didn't need a Real ID. Both Iowa and Indiana have extended their deadlines till 2020.  SC requires it.

It is 1 AM and I am wide awake again. I hope I can get to sleep soon.  Tylenol PM didn't help.  Sharon

Beverly, I'm sorry to hear you've had health problems and I hope you're on the mend.  I have hunted every place I could think of to find an obit for June.  I was spelling her first name as Marjorie but I think any paper would catch that difference.  Since she died March 6 and her memorial service was today (3/25), I wonder if we'll find anything.  It would seem an obit would be in the paper before the service.  I'll look a few more days, then give it up.

Get better!

My 2ยข --
For a chuckle, --- I've cut my wife's hair three or four times in recent history. Surely not like a pro but passable :2funny:
When we were first married I did a dye job on her to "restore" a botched dye job she and one of her friends did. She tried for red but it came out orange. I thought I came home to the wrong apartment.  :2funny:    :knuppel2: I fixed it and got a well done from her mother (the last good thing she said about me).

OPENING JARS - A very handy and inexpensive helper is a "Jar Pop". It works great on lids that are vacuum sealed. It just lifts the edge enough to break the vacuum which is enough to make it easy to open. They were only a couple of bucks when we got a couple but I see now Amazon is in the $8 area (still worth it IMHO). Google it.

Hi Everyone! I'm back for awhile... Since Christmas I've had health problems and don't often feel like posting. I do keep up with Facebook, mostly for contact with my family. I had nearly non-stop company during February and most of this month. Mostly family but they're a big help when they are here.

I am so sorry to hear of June's passing. As others have said, she was an inspiration. Always looking on the bright side and seeing the best in everyone.

I also did a search for obituaries but found none. I remember her saying once that June was her middle name so after searching some more, I found her name...Marjory June Drabek. It's possible they haven't posted an obituary yet so I'll continue to look.

Larry - Sorry to hear you've been feeling "under the weather" lately. I've missed all of you and hope to come in here more often.

Shirley and Jackie, I used to cut my own hair with a single edge blade.  This was years ago and it was for a "feather cut".  I've always had my hair in a similar cut because I have cowlicks that won't let me have long hair.  Two years ago, my stylist retired after she had been cutting my hair for over 30 years.  The replacement tries, but we haven't hit on the right cut yet.  I don't help much because I sleep on my left side and my hair on that side loses whatever wave it has and often there is a bunch that stands out like a haystack!  After a shampoo, my hair looks OK for a couple of days, especially Sunday!

Shirley, I think my jar opener is the same as yours only I can't reach it now; age has taken a toll on my height and strength in my right shoulder.  I still give a jar a rap with a dinner knife and if that doesn't work, I wait for Tom to come home!  They aren't the Golden Years, they're the Rust Years!

When my hair was thick & coarse it took several new razor blades to cut, no matter how hard the steel, my hair was tougher. Now I get by with one new blade, can still find the Schick injector ones that work best for me. If I cut one little sprig of hair with sissors it will stick out, always took that slant edge made with a razor blade. It still grows fast but not as thick and not as coarse, but still don't have patience to go get it done. I used to tell my husband how much I saved him. He had an appointment every three weeks his whole life to have his cut, then he would come home & want me to "trim a little on this side". He insisted the barber would get to talking & forget what he was doing.  My sister was the one that loved to give perms, to Mother & for herself... and every so often she would badger me into one. I"d look like Little Orphan Annie for a few days & would cut it off, my head did not look good with a perm!

Jackie, I can still cut with my hands but just can't see what I'm doing. I did just find a jar opener like my mother had, because I don't have the strength in my hands to open anything. I've bought several other kinds that didn't work for me but this one is a life saver!  I installed it myself under the top kitchen cabinets, just pop something into it & give a twist & no effort to open. I am delighted.  One time in the RV I wanted a peanut butter & jelly sandwich.. new jar of peanut butter. I tried everything but couldn't get it open & was so mad at myself. Felt like throwing that jar but couldn't open the door with the cats standing there. I can imagine your frustration at times.

Jean, I heard something on the news the other day about your town, meant to ask you about it & now can't remember what it was. Did something exciting go on around there lately? 

Joy, still giggling at your comment about the principal wearing that outfit being brave.... exactly what I was thinking. Must be a very good sport!

Jane, that is the right word common sense. He put the frozem fish in with the hot chicken roast. My fault I ws not watching, I was writing a check and trying to hear at the same time.  A lot of checkers will even put it in the basket of the rollator for me.
