      Her family moved her against her will to a nursing home near them in Nebraska. She hated it there--said she hated the newspaper! She got a friend to move her back to Bonesteel (quite a name, eh?) to an assisted living place where she could walk to the PO every day to get her mail.

      When Medicare first rolled out, the Gov tapped her to go around the state and explain it to people. Something we do not have with ACA,

        being extra vigilant. Being a corker must be genetic cuz you seem to have it too. Thanks for commenting.  

        Sorry, I tried to share with you my 19 rules of punctuation, rather than getting your funny joke about "mistahkes."  

        But, it is probably good to know about me that this danger always lurks just below the surface with everything I do.

          Corker that I am.

          I am really interested in your 19 rules of punctuation. Really.

          I had a fault concerning prepositions so am extra vigilant about them. I will often just do an editing review just for them. Not to say it is my only fault as I am not a Retired English Major either.

              It was lame but still in the genre. Play on words. I'll try to play it broader next time!

              As in retired from British military. My minor was writing.

                Writing is fun. Thanks for commenting.

                I just watched Bates Motel with my s.o. Now we're watching a new show that comes on afterwards, about a pychopath. It's visually quite vivid, but I haven't figured out the plot yet.

                I have trouble focusing just on TV without writing or reading at the same time. It's more like background music for me.
