well jelly donuts usually help me, you would know about that. I'm sayin is - life can be dull -it's the little things that you miss sometimes. I miss uh, dancing by myself around the living room in the middle of the night while playing Jimi Hendrix. No more Hendrix in the night for me - (I share a house)
Denno I would love to see a pic of you with long hair! I love long hair on men. Hubby used to have it down the middle of his back, but when we moved to the lower 48 he had to cut it to even get a job. Grrr! If you're not in Alaska it doesn't fit, I guess.
I am missing my son, who is in Afghanistan for TEN MORE DAYS and then he gets to come home for 2 weeks. I can't tell you how much I miss him.
To each his own, Ralwus. I spread my youth around a tad, too, but I'd never want to go back a single step.
Right now, I'm not quite certain what I'm missing, but I know my wife would say it's a shower. Until I get the house completed to the point of being able to move in with pressurized hot running water, we've only got cold gravity feed from the storage tank. Which in winter, even here in southern Arizona, is not precisely to her liking for washing her hair, among other things.
Have you seen Into The Wild? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Into_the_Wild_(film) I think of this when I think about your building home. His shower hook up in alaska seems like it would work beautifully for your wife. Go on ahead and spoil her
Hm. Never looked at McCandless and myself as being on quite the same page...never burned any money deliberately, and wouldn't be likely to abandon good rice, for example.
There are shower hookups I could do. Only drawback is time--right now I get about 5 to 6 hours of reasonably warm work time per day to work on the house, and that doesn't count the many "lost" days spent running to town for supplies or chasing meds, medical appointments, or counseling for Pam. Got the original storage tank (sun-heated only tank, requires hot days to do much temperature-wise) set up just in time for weather too cold to help much. By mid-April, a 2 p.m. shower should be fairly comfy. But by then the "for real" setup should be getting close to finished, too....
Doubt our new house will remind you much of the McCandless bus once it's done. Understand it for now, though.
