I'm actually a bit of a loner. But I do have very nice neighbors and friends where I live. So whenever I feel like company, all I have to do is go outside and start walking around. Honestly, I can go outside to say hi to one neighbor, five more will drive by and stop, and it will be four hours before I get back in my house. Happens all the time. We call them street meetings. LOL.

I will keep the link, and once it's safe to go back out in the world again, I'll give it a try!

P.S. I sure hope I didn't come off as some lonely, pitiful creature. I sure don't feel that way. I'm very blessed. It just so happens that all of my family has passed away. And by choice, I never got married or had children. Never wanted to. Life has been full and happy, had it's very trying times as well. And what I wrote about DU was meant to express how special it is to have a place like this to share like-minded feelings and experiences.

This has been the only place for me... pat_k Mar 2020 #1
