As the owner of a two year-old who suffers from the same malady(how do you keep the g-parnets from buying her MORE toys?!), I can completely empathize.

Welcome back! Always glad to see someone back who dropped from sight.

There actually was an idea one time that we would try to keep tabs on each other, and if someone turned up missing for a while, a volunteer would phone.

So far, OT hasn't missed a beat, except when he's playing sock puppet.

What a useful label! Just what we was needing! Thank you! (and welcome back!)

OT, you know better than that. Buying toys is g'ma's job. Breaking and losing them is Altoid's. You're in charge of repair and shelving. :grin:

You can't, just shovel them out the back door to Goodwill or Salvation Army as fast as they come in the front door. I think we've donated close to a cool $1000 worth of toys to the local Salvation Army. FleaBay is always an option too.

I've been craving more Saint-Saens. What are your favorites, other than the Carnival of Animals?

The Swan is the only thing I can still play from memory.

I wish I had more bagpipe music. I like it, and I usually wear headphones when I'm playing it so nobody expects me to answer silly questions for them. If I leave the headphones off, it's a spectacularly effective pest-repellent. If it's an unusually persistent pest, I sing along with the pipes.

I've got the Denver Brass's Bagpipes and Brass and I want more. Recommendations?

You're welcome, Oh Southerly one. I didn't know you were South of me. I thought you were West of here. The last time I went through the middle of nowhere, it was in Central Oregon.

The 16-month-old little girl suffers from SRS (Spoiled Rotten Syndrome). I thought daughter #1 was strong-willed. I was wrong.

Husband is finally learning how to survive in the the estrogen-filled house. Life is good.


Hooray she's back!!!!!!

I like bagpipe music, and heard last night of a chorale composer who's work I'd like to hear more of:
Eric Whitacre Eric W on Amazon

(the few snippets I heard were reminiscent of Morten Lauridsen, in which case, I wont want to hear too much because it will all start to sound the same.)
