Not to any humans but to 18 pets.

I am quite happy not to live with any humans but it'd be absolutely deadly to not be living with any animals, especially the supreme animals of the world - cats.

Nope, there are three of us.
There are several thousand nearly complete viral genomes integrated into the human genome, most now inert or missing a crucial gene. These account for 1.3% of the entire genome. That may not sound like much, but 'proper' genes account for only 3%. If you think being descended from apes is bad for your self-esteem, then get used to the idea that you are also descended from viruses.

I have always been a grass is greener on the other side kind of person.

When I'm in a relationship I envy single people. When I'm single I envy those in relationships.

I don’t envy those just starting to date in the #metoo era. There are some good things coming out of #metoo, obviously. It will be harder to get away with Harvey Weinstein crimes, especially over so many years. But, I think it was easier to be a teenager in the 80s, or even 90s.

There are days that I envy the simplicity and peace of the single. Those days are sometimes followed by nights where I sleep downstairs. O0

If you have a Fidelity account, you may have some new 30-year treasury interest as of Saturday (Vanguard bond interest is usually late, and still hasn’t shown up).

When I get married, people from this forum would definitely be invited to attend. ^-^ ^-^ ^-^

It's a promise I know I can keep, because in order to follow through a woman would first have to agree to marry me. 8)

Ah, yes. Once was indeed enough. Bookmarking this page in case I ever lose my mind and think about marrying again.

Only 3 of the 18 are cats. I've set my house limit at 3 cats (unless a Siamese or Tonkinese comes around. Then I'd make an exception to add one more). All the others are rodents. And, all, including the cats, are low maintenance.

Brings to memory a few lines I decades ago heard a Pastor use in a sermon: "Marriage is like flies and a screen. Those on the outside want to get in while those on the inside want to get out."

Also, remember what my cousin said even decades and decades before that: "I'd rather wish for the rest of my life for what I did not have than to wish for the rest of my life that I did not have what I do have."

Well you’re in the right country, as it’ll be legal soon-
I’m kidding, just kidding.
I like Canada and wouldn’t want to live in a world without Rush’s 2112.
