But…we drew the line at a high-end baby-gate. It’s a long story and a couple’s argument about a 9-year-old dog that she doesn’t want and he “can’t part with”. The $20 gate wouldn’t do because the dog could jump it. The $40 gate wouldn’t do because it’s hard to open (they know someone who has one). The $60 gate would be perfect. We volunteered instead to give them the $100 for the pound to take the dog off their hands. OK, we’re in-laws. They live in a small apartment with a big dog and our precious 4-month-old grandson. They’re
almost barely getting by.
Anyway, this round of spending is about wrapped up. Tomorrow – I’m cutting M’s hair (at her request). They mentioned watching a movie. There will be much more in the way of goo-goo-goo, gah–gah–gah conversations with our grandson. And we head home.
Now to balance your judgment, read here to see what’s going on in my “regular” life. I’m being reinvented.
