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 to 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.

Our home-town hero (one of them), and he's great! Ya know, I was that kid, took the Dr, nurse, and my mom to hold me down for a shot til I was about 10. I still can't figure why it all was so scary, given my falls & scrapes, but the logic finally hit me after that.

I agree that local nurseries will be your best guide! Bosky Dell Natives just outside of West Linn in Stafford is great, and Loen Nursery in Sherwood should also be a good resource for you :-).

What is being lonely?
tinkercreek comments on Nov 19, 2019:
Years of interviewing dozens of job applicants helped me with the unexpected skill of making small talk. The best way to know an applicant is to get them talking and I think that works in social situations too, for most folks enjoy the opportunity to talk about their own stuff. Downside of that can be getting trapped in that conversation, but there are 'creative' ways of ducking out of that!

tinkercreek comments on Apr 23, 2021:
Medium-sized poodle mix, young adult, with known social history. Mixed with something short or smooth-haired would be best to avoid grooming needs, but they are smart and friendly. My first puppy looked like a sheltie, but his mom was a white poodle and he was an amazing 30-lb dog!

How much to get a 7 year old dog vaccinated?
tinkercreek comments on Sep 6, 2020:
Pet vaccine clinics are great, and I've used them for years. Cost depends on which vaccines the dog needs so if you have previous vaccine records, do be sure to bring them along. If the vaccinating vet notices anything concerning in the cursory exam they do, and recommends follow-up care, be sure you take that advice!

tinkercreek comments on Nov 3, 2020:
Good for you! I somehow started cutting hair for friends in college, then my kids, so I learned a bit. My hair is long now and one length, grows very fast, so it's been quite easy to trim it myself. That's so cool your daughter likes it!

Those are tough situations, and you show a strong character to not criticize or argue, wouldn't make a difference to them anyway. Good luck getting through tomorrow!

Someone I am talking to online suggested we discuss the "deep conversation starters" linked below.
tinkercreek comments on Sep 16, 2020:
It does call out the intention to share with your S.O,, but seems like a list of reasonable conversation starters for anyone. Do you have an objection to offering honesty too soon in a relationship? If so, just leave, for no one needs that.
Good question which is it ?

Maybe it's a steer.
