I LONG ago got used to being Sena's mom or the monkey lady. For 10 years I was a monkey nanny to Winston so I usually had 2 in tow. Nobody remembered my name, but they always remembered Sena and Winston's.

The one who suffers is Lily. Everybody wants to interact with Sena and little Lily gets forgotten. She's gotten so she will either wrap her leash around their legs or jump up on them as if to say, "Look at me, I like attention, too."

Don't know why I'm stressing myself out so much over a feature I rarely use. It now scans from the printer, but not from the desktop SW... consistently.

I used to have my Deskjet 895Cse turn on and print automatically, but I can't find the model number that allowed it. Multiple HP models work for that printer and also allow 2 sided printing, with a message that pops up saying and showing how to re-insert the first page again.

Barb,

Not according to the couple I have reading this thread. They moved to Canada because the little redneck town of Port Alberni didn't differentiate what a 'couple' was and they found that to their liking so they left Great Britain.

We were chatting about RVing and stuff at brekkies one day and I mentioned the Mutants. They were intrigued so I sent them the address and thread name and they are busy reading the posts.

Other people on this thread have expressed basically the same views Denise and I have about being open-minded while still a tad red necked and that works for most of us so that works for all of us.

I just like being part and parcel to a group who enjoys living and enjoys letting others live their happiness too. So I don't think its an oxymoron at all.

Now, you know I'm going to have to try this, you wicked woman, you! Look what you've started. DH will kill me first, and then you! Retting fibers is a stinky business, I understand, since another word for it might be "rotting", as in rotting away the outer tissues.

Oh the things I have to do for professional curiosity, never mind the mutant variety.

BTW, thanks for the link!

Cheers!

Their carry over from Great Britain, short form for Breakfast. The four of us meet up at a local restaurant for brekkies quite often on Sunday mornings.

I grew up in Texas and I always thought a redneck was someone who was convinced their way was the ONLY way and could and would get rather nasty towards folks not like them.

Maybe they have a better class of Rednecks up north?

Probably just a more liberal application of the term. Anyway, I have not seen anyone of this collection of mutants that I would not like to partake brekkies with, either in public or in our home (RV too)

Good point! I'll have to leave out the kraut if I'm to impress DH, though.

Google is your friend.

Urban Dictionary: Brekkies

Brekkies. Another word for breakfast, but usually used in the context of a late night meal of breakfast foods after heavy alcohol consumption.

We call it "Brefcus" in our house cause that's the way my daughter used to said when she was little. There are a few other strange words that have stuck in our family language such as, Lets decorate the "Chripens Tree" or pass me a "nakin".
