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.

tinkercreek comments on Jul 4, 2020:
Such a sweet memory! Kudos and many more years to you both.
Most guys get in their head to do something that later proves to be not the wisest choice.
tinkercreek comments on Jul 4, 2020:
We all make silly mistakes, and hopefully take one another's humanity into account when we notice another's foible. I think maybe women are just quicker to craft a cover-up, which is why I usually prefer men as friends.
I took this today of the ‘Walking Iris’ from Brazil, long after I thought it had finished.

tinkercreek comments on Jul 4, 2020:
It does look cute, and a great choice until your hair starts growing in better. I cut my very long hair not quite that short when I had stress-hair loss about 30 yrs ago, and the freedom was nice.

tinkercreek comments on Jul 3, 2020:
They closed the one here in Portland, amid much protest from the gaming community, and relief from those who want a good life for animals. I love seeing all the rescues at the dog park!

Virtual vaca, yes!! Check out Mana Island Resort & Spa, which is where my daughter got married. Both of my kids live beyond my means, and I am still in debt for this but will never regret it!
I did something that I had never wanted to have to do which is block anther member.
tinkercreek comments on Jun 30, 2020:
I hesitated on that before, but I enjoy this site for good conversation, ideas, discussions, funnies, and feeling better about the world in general. When someone repeatedly posts their consistently rotten or nasty attitudes, I have no use for them.
Hello! I’m new to this website and very new to baking.
tinkercreek comments on Jun 30, 2020:
Good for you in doing a test run on this - that is quite a challenging project and you are far braver than I would be! I made so many 'theme' b'day cakes for my kids and had lots of fun, always incorporating little toys and figurines. They loved it, and now my daughter does the same for her littles 💕.

I like your "no-fail" gardening plan!
Really is there
tinkercreek comments on Jun 28, 2020:
I'm pretty sure there used to be days like that.
I have been wondering why I have been feeling lonely for the last several weeks.
tinkercreek comments on Jun 27, 2020:
I have recognized in myself that's it's not just the covid isolation, but as GreatNani points out, the multitude of challenges in the world right now. There is only so much uncertainty and change we can deal with, whether or not it's right in front of us - we know it's out there.
I posted 2 weeks ago i was going to cut the comfrey back.

Good neighbors pick their neighbor's garden when they are away. I try to be a very good neighbor.
tinkercreek comments on Jun 25, 2020:
Oooh, and with great reward!
My father past away this week with the funeral ending just a few hours ago.
tinkercreek comments on Jun 25, 2020:
I am so sorry for the loss of your father. Regardless of the place they have with us, losing a parent changes us and our lives in unexpected ways, and for a long time. My thought is that by asking your "return to faith", your father was speaking from within the only framework he knew, wanting you to live as a loving and caring person, showing integrity and compassion. You are obviously all of that, and then some, to show the respect and cooperation with siblings for funeral plans, and take on the care of your mother. I don't believe you could do more to honor and respect your father's wishes, and if there is a glimpse of your life for him now he will know that you have become an even more wonderful child than he could have asked, without imagined and artificial constraints on your psyche and life!
Hail up on the mountain.

I think this might be a flower stalk since it sprouted a sister plant off the back underside.

Have you ever fallen for a ruse before?
tinkercreek comments on Jun 21, 2020:
It is nearly impossible not to view, act and react to people and situations differently after realizing you have spent years with a pathological liar, or worse. The edges do soften over time and with reflection, and respecting my own "hackles" as helpful intuition, which I was raised to ignore. Yes, we can learn anew, utilizing intuition as a helpful tool rather than a weapon. I think I'm making progress, and it sounds like you are too. Onward!
Today is the solstice. Anybody doing anything special. I don’t have any plans.
tinkercreek comments on Jun 21, 2020:
I took down the 'springtime' decor from my porch, and enjoyed a lovely late sunset from the dogpark. I am quite tired of distancing.
Do you have one of these new fangled garlic peelers?
tinkercreek comments on Jun 21, 2020:
They are SO efficient, also good at scattering topcover from my potted plants as they bury their stash!
With all the bad stuff going on how about a little levity?

Nice compost setup!
I have been working on a social experiment it is just an fun type of exercise.
tinkercreek comments on Jun 21, 2020:
Maybe there is something to say on how you behave, make eye contact, hold yourself while wearing certain colors? Demographics are also likely at play - blues/greens may be favored here in the PNW!

Happy Friday! Would you live in a tiny home?
tinkercreek comments on Jun 13, 2020:
I've lived in my small house for 12 yrs, but not a 'tiny home'. Though it measures about 1000sf, I have a second small bedroom that I rarely set foot into, but it is essentially extra storage. I enjoy the minimal aspect of it and am continually working to downsize as much as possible. Less stuff is more freedom! I think that being tall (5'10") would create some very real discomforts, though I love the concept and have seen some great floorplans.

From facebook: "male birth control is free and it’s called holding a fish in your profile photo"
tinkercreek comments on Jun 8, 2020:
Given that we live in a time with groceries readily available and many contemporary means of offering one's value as a human being, I see nothing but red flags around someone who somehow believes they can attract a mate by holding up a dead fish or other dead animal (and I grew up with fishing and hunting; it's not about squeamishness). Then there was the man I was dating, who brought me a bag of harvested rhubarb and said "here, I bet you can make a pie out of these!"
Thats what xians will believe

tinkercreek comments on May 31, 2020:
So glad she's all better! I have heard from several sources recently that the toxic heart worm medication is actually worse than the affliction, now that there is treatment available. What was your experience with it: troubling, uncomfortable, expensive??
