    who amongst us had to cut up a frog in science
    September 15, 2019, 2:37 am
    I did. I also had the really good looking, Harvard grad teacher, grab my hand and Make me touch the worm. I took Natural Science and Biology one. I will never have a speck of the love for science so many of you have. If I had gone on I probably would have blown up the Chemistry Lab.

      That's the quickie method if you are using pre-boiled frogs.

        Okay, I've only done 4 or 5 puzzles today, but three of them had the word "experience" in them -- thankfully.

        February 25, 2018, 12:42 pm

        And if that isn't coincidence enough, this is my third puzzle in a row today that used the word "human".

        June 13, 2018, 4:45 am

        montyb, it's all part of the human experience

              My aunts wouldn't even realize the irony in this. Christmas dinner is so loud that some of us have started wearing earplugs.

              My dad once recorded Thanksgiving dinner for some reason. Only when we listened to the tape later did we hear my grandfather quietly telling a long story underneath everyone else's random, loud and overlapping talk.

                I just bought myself an adult tricycle for my 58th birthday. The little girl across the street dropped her mom's mail all over the sidewalk when she saw me fly by.

                  its incredibly hard to die with dignity. i can attest to that first hand right now. you have to fight for every last ounce of it. the health care system wants to put you in a hospital and refer to you as the ovarian cancer in bed three...I prefer to be known as Donna. I choose to die with dignity. At home. With loved ones. Is it a duty? I believe thats a personal choice. In my case, yes. My duty is die the way I lived...not having choices made for me. Not being a bed number but a human being.

                  pootie - Donna - you have much dignity here. I send you my humble good wishes.

                  Donna had so much dignity so much grace against such a horrible disease. Miss you Pootie.

                  this is the first time i've seen this comment from pootie--bless her heart. and bless her soul for eternity.

                  I found this site quite a while after Donna died, but I have come to know her a bit through her comments. There was one about the joy and peace of having a true loving partner in life that brought tears to my eyes, as does this thread.

                  Donna, you were a such very good friend to me, and I miss you so much. The site is not the same without your humour. (That's how she would have spelled it.) RIP dear lady.

                  Donna was such a big part of this board and her wit and charm always livened things up. I miss her.

                  I have read little snippets from Pootie, too, and I knew she passed away, but what she wrote here truly brought tears to my eyes. I hope she passed peacefully at home.
                  December 7, 2019, 5:54 pm
                  Wow! Just read Pootie's post and all I can say is Wpw!

                  Aw, Pootie! We miss you!

                    I guess in the Middle Ages he would have been an actual carbon footprint.
