When did you last have sex with a partner? (A 50 and over confidential poll)
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
I truly cannot remember, but I think it has been more than a year. I remember who, just not when. I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not. But I haven't found anyone in the past couple of years or more that I've wanted to develop a relationship with. If I was willing to have a long distance relationship maybe things would change, but such as it is, Omaha is where my kids settled and I don't want to move.
I felt these needed to be shared here. Meow.

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
Happy immigrant mixed breed. Mom's family was from Germany and Switzerland. Grandmother came to the US at age 10, mom was born in '27, so I'm guessing Grandma came over very early 1900s. Grandpa was here a few years before that. Dad's parents were English, Scottish mix. Great Grandpa Smith came from Lincoln, England and settled in Lincoln, Nebraska.

As a single person, are there any holidays you find it especially to get through?
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
I spent 6 years in the Army, my first tour was Okinawa, I worked shift work. I got used to being away from family and loved ones very quickly. While I was married Valentines day was a joke, the marriage was bad for too long. Holidays meant more time with the ex til he got bored with us and went off to do his own thing. Post divorce I worked 12 hour shifts so we rearranged holiday get togethers. Usually my ex is at family gatherings. We're amicable, but still. So today it looks like I will not see my kids, but I will see them tomorrow, and w/o the ex so win! I've been busy today and just happy for a day I get paid but don't have to work, and I got a nap in!

Dealing with holiday loneliness
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
I have three adult kids that live in my town, one I know will be out of town today. I have no idea what the other two have going on, and haven't invited me to anything. I don't care about fireworks, so my plan is just to do what I wanna do and enjoy my day off. My actual plan is a nap sometime here shortly, and then work on one of my hundreds of projects and stay inside. It is 90° and high humidity so only feels like 100° outside. Too hot for me.

Are you mellowing with age or leaning toward the get-off-my-lawn end of the spectrum?
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 4, 2018:
Depends on what the issue is. Have you seen my political postings, I'm getting more Liberal and proud of it as I age. My grass I don't give a darn about, I just don't want the twerps looking in my windows or messing with my garden. I curse at other drivers, put the damn phone down and pay attention to traffic! My motto is pick your battles and find your peace. I am concerned enough about the USA to chose to participate politically. Who the Kardashians are sleeping or not sleeping with I don't give a rip for. Why are they a thing, anyway?

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 3, 2018:
I am pro life and pro choice. I think all babies should be wanted, welcomed and born. However, through personal experience I know it can't always be. I had a baby with severe neural tube defects (yes, more than one defect) that would preclude life outside the womb, and may have caused me to miscarry or worse. I had an abortion. The baby was wanted, planned and welcome. But **I** made a choice for **MY** health. This was more than 30 years ago. I would love for every woman never to have to make that choice. No woman makes it happily, but every woman has to make the choice for herself, her health, her family. I spent 20+ years in Christian communities and I have told my story several times. It shuts down arguments really fast. I have a sister with fertility issues, she used to cry knowing babies were being aborted, but she also supports a woman's choice for authority over her body.

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 3, 2018:
I think it is fear that is preached by politicians. Their divide and conquer system tells folks that the new comers might take what they have recently achieved. "they're different" When you have been deprived it is hard to let go of the fear, they don't realize it isn't pie, there is enough for all; and different is not evil or bad, it is just not what you're used to.

Rural Nebraska German immigrants always pronounce Creek as CRICK. When I want to wig my daughters out, I say crick just to let them stew. What gets my goat is when someone says Warshington, or warsh machine. There is no R in wash! One of my kids' teachers in Washington State always said WARSH. And I am thinking "why are you teaching children, especially mine?"

Go to the closest shop that sells essential oils, buy oil of cloves. Saturate a cotton ball w/the oil and another oil and hold it against your gum above the hurting tooth. It will give you about 5 hours of relief. I did that the night before an emergency root canal. And it is what Dustin Hoffman was using in Marathon Man. It isn't a fix, it is just to give you temporary relief.

For me, appearance matters very little. Good hygiene, hair as they prefer, skin color or race doesn't matter. Non religious and liberal matter. Interests can vary.

Do you like to fly?
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 1, 2018:
I don't mind flying, it gets me there faster. However, if the airplane is too crowded or too long I tend to get a bit claustrophobic. Too many other people breathing the same air. Small town airports are interesting. If you ever have a chance to fly into Grand Island, NE you think you're going to crash in a corn field and then the runway appears like magic!!

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 1, 2018:
I agree. Religions are meant to keep people apart, to divide and conquer. I have no issues with gender fluid persons, all I ask is that they forgive me when I mess up pronouns because I'm old with ingrained habits. For example when a Rebecca becomes a he my brain doesn't make that switch easily or quickly, but I try. If the bible is taken literally I would have been stoned ages ago. And I give the bible no place in my life today.

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 1, 2018:
It is a huge pimping of girls. Not to mention that girls are put into supporting roles and told boys sports are more important than theirs. Plus cheerleading is a huge popularity contest. I never told my girls they couldn't go out for cheerleader. They told me they didn't want to. Two were in the marching band and none of them had much good to say about the cheerleaders or their relative intelligence.

There are coastal roads on the East Coast that are flooded out on a regular basis, and some pricey property that is now really water front. New Orleans will be gone, as will Florida, Charleston, Norfolk, VA, New York, Houston, and DC. Its pretty grim.
