This online venture is for friendship and community more than anything else, and it fascinates me that the PNW seems so lightly represented here! What, we have more options and freedoms seek out interesting folks in person?

My Lutheran upbringing gave way long ago a world of information and the myriad of cultures that join us all in community. I have enjoyed Unitarian fellowships for helping me see what a broad scope of wisdom is available from so many sources.

My 2 kids are each married, healthy, happy, and raising families of their own. Experiencing life with grandies has brought a wealth of love and joy I could not have imagined.

I do not care, and don't care to know.

Lovely, thank you! Makes me realize how much time has passed since I visited our Portland Japanese Garden, which has undergone remodels.
How do you answer "How are you today?"
tinkercreek comments on Dec 28, 2019:
Hahaha, trying to get over "sprayed against your will with God cologne"!! However, I usually don't care for being asked that, and it often seems a bit invasive and entitled. Perhaps that tags me as private and reclusive? True. In answer to the question, my most common response is "doing well, thanks". Action statement, open to change.

tinkercreek comments on Dec 27, 2019:
I have become aware that some folks truly do not know how to communicate without using negativity and criticism. It must be quite tiring.

tinkercreek comments on Dec 27, 2019:
Lesson: NEVER go big on a first date/meeting, no matter how well the 'conversations' have gone!
I have a loquat tree, and with the need for pollination I feed the bees to keep them coming back.

tinkercreek comments on Dec 24, 2019:

I still have a bit of shopping to do, not as easy as usual to get around post-op! Gift parcel has arrived to my daughter's family in NZ; I'll take some nibbles over to my son's Christmas morn (3.5 yr old & 6 mo old), then on to my niece's (90 min drive) for visiting & dinner w/a vege dish, with an early exit in light of returning to work on 12/26!

tinkercreek comments on Dec 21, 2019:
With my daughter's family in New Zealand, they often have porridge (oatmeal), yet traditional kids' fare is Vegemite or peanut butter on toast, or spaghetti on toast. YES, the canned stuff, like Spaghetti-O's we have here! Those tykes need their carbs, you know.

I was just wondering how he would assist with the strict NZ immigration laws when I saw the bit about this advert being for NZ'ers only. Oh, if only there were a clause for foreigners to apply! Even up on North Island is far closer to my daughter in Christchurch, and with much nicer weather, as well. Perhaps I'll ask her to send me the needed contact info, and write a nice letter . . . 😎

tinkercreek comments on Dec 18, 2019:
This is a natural life progression, one of many, and it makes me a bit sad to see men who obviously think it affects their personal value in some way. Sadder, still, would be a woman who judges a man based on that. Comb-overs are THE WORST, followed by toupees and implants. Shaving seems to work well for many, though a short cut sounds like far easier maintenance. Geesh, don't we all have enough to worry about?!

How does one get their ex-pastor to leave them alone?
tinkercreek comments on Dec 18, 2019:
Tell him you prefer that he no longer asks you that, as you are happy with your decision to leave his church and in no need of establishing with another church. Does he phone you? Block his number. See you in the grocery? Excuse yourself, no reason needed. Stop you on the sidewalk? Same. Come to your home? Ask him to please stop visiting, as you have no business with him (religion is his "business"). Do you speak with your brother-in-law? Might be good to let him know that the pastor's contact is not welcome. You made a choice, and have no obligation to share your values with anyone, but you may want to consider how the "truth will set you free!"

Glad you're back home, but some answers/resolution to those symptoms would be nice, also. TIA's? are you on blood thinners? Yes, I would guess some Rx adjustment is in order, and hope they at least did some comprehensive bloodwork for your docs to consider. Take good care!
