Children wouldn't have done a thing to help you, Felaine. I see it in the care homes where Aunt and brother-in-law live: the family isn't there, they're off on holiday or something else. B-i-l told me some people in his home have hardly any furniture in their rooms, because the family wouldn't take the trouble to go to Ikea.

Both cats are napping with my sister right now....and we don't have a car for them to drive, anyway.  I thought I was going to save a buncha $$$$ when I got rid of that old heap (it was a 1979 Ponti-wreck), but the cost of everything else went up so drastically that I'm just stuck.

Burbank does have a Senior & Disabled transportation service, but they have cut back their hours, and there are so many rules and restrictions pertaining to using the service that it's hardly worth using it. 

Plus, the "buses" are just a smallish bus body welded to a truck chassis, and IMO they have NO springs at all. The drivers are not allowed to help the passengers in any way....(except to check that our seat belts are fastened) save the city money on insurance....  And because I need to use a walker when I leave the house, I need someone to help me carry the groceries.  I wish

I still had the red wagon I had when I was about 5 or 6.....

I had Cup Noodles for breakfast to celebrate the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and half a deli turkey sammidge (w/my own cranberry sauce) to celebrate all the rotten shows on TV.

The cupboard is nearly bare.  I can't get in touch with anyone who can drive me to BTAC for some free food.  Everyone has either moved away, or is busy with family. 

Sometimes I think not wanting children was a mistake, but I KNOW I would have been a rotten parent.

Oh, well.  My kittehs love me....when they're in the mood.

Well, I think I over did it yesterday, Then again I do enjoy cooking. I will say the turkey and pumpkin cheesecake came out great. As did the dressing, home made green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and brussel sprouts. I have enough leftovers for at least the long weekend.

Spud, I was at the point my daughter is right now for a few years before I became atheist. I also found time yesterday to talk with both girls and say no traditional burial for me. Have a small service, cremate me, and scatter the ashes.

Being alone, I didn't cook anything special for thanksgiving.  My turkey is still thawing.  Takes an especially long time in my refrigerator, which I keep at 28 degrees F.

I'm still eating pumpkin cupcakes, and yesterday I finished the pumpkin pie I bought.  It was very good, and I didn't have to add any extra spices.

Oh, yes Pat!  I had a pomegranate tree when I lived in California, and learned how to juice the suckers.  Pomegranate juice is wonderfully tasty, especially fresh squeezed.

Cranberries have never been at the top of my list. They're OK. And, I do use the dried ones in my granola. But, I wouldn't go out of my way for them.
Pomegranate juice and carbonated water - mighty tasty.

Randy, a C grade sounds better than what it could have been,  No prayer would definitely increase my grade, but no gravy would decrease it a bit. : )

Chris reminded me that I've read where there are more takers when a low price is put on something, rather than free.

Joan, I'm pleased to hear that your family are agnostic or atheist, so there is no conflicts.
