    @Nancy Hart good video. It wouldn't surprise me to suspect that incorrect posture being the cause of itching. To me itching is a sign that something is not right with our bodies, inside and out.

    Laura Bowen reminded me so much of my grandmother. I hope I'm as sharp as her if/when I make it to 96.

    You will be. Excuse the interruption but Mississippi State is coming to town this weekend. I know you'll beat them
    but I hope you don't embarrass them by not allowing them to score at all.

    I almost forgot. Time is flying. 7:30 pm Sat. Will set an alarm clock.

    I don't know, we got beat by Florida, badly. I missed it.

    Wish we could play Oklahoma. ;)

    It looks like the Georgia/Mississippi State game is at the same time as the Oklahoma/Oklahoma State game. So I expect I won't be hearing from @Bill Boggs. ;)

    Georgia/MS tied 17-17 at halftime.

    I’m watching #14 Ok Stat and #18 Oklahoma but I get an occasional score on Georgia And MS.
    MS has surprised me. Georgia will tear them up in the second half.

    It was close. Mississippi played well I think, but I don't know much. Just go by what the announcers say.

    Same to you (I assume, when you say your team is Oklahoma, you mean the Sooners).

    The braided rugs arrived ahead of schedule, the day before Thanksgiving. They are not very pretty, but the prettier patterns would have soon shown stains in high traffic areas. The only change I might have made is narrower, on the big one.

    I think they did a high quality sewing job, and the braids are solid, not paper filled. Cost about the same as wall to wall carpeting installed. I've already mentioned the reasons I don't like wall to wall carpet in this house. If they had more choices, I'd order some for the 2 bedrooms. I might anyway.

    Looks great, Nancy. I believe they are perfect in your house. Years ago I had a somewhat large braided rug; I believe I ordered it from either JC Penney or Sears' catalogue. :D

    All of my other braided rugs came from the Sears catalog. They were/are fine, and I would have looked for them there again, but their standard sizes wouldn't work for these areas. :(

    I did a lot of home decorating with those catalogues back in the day.

    I'm curious about your house; do you have downstairs bedroom(s) or bathrooms? Lately I've been thinking that though we want to stay in our home, we only have a half bath downstairs and no bedroom. Not sure how we will navigate the staircase if we make it to our 80s and beyond. One of those "stair-lift" things might be in our future.

    There is a full bath and bedroom, both upstairs and down. But the bathroom downstairs is small, and has only a 32" shower---arms either down or up, but not both at the same time.

    I've been thinking of remodeling the bath downstairs, to include a utility room right next to it, just in case. Then the bedroom would be closer to the refrigerator. :D

    I've been thinking of doing a lot of things, but not doing anything until I'm forced to lately. :rolleyes:

    I hear ya on the "thinking of doing" situation. Seems like I do more thinking than doing these days, too.

    I have always preferred an upstairs bedroom; somehow it seems a little safer (except in the event of a fire...eeeek.) Probably just my skewed perception. But now I'm seeing that for an older person navigating stairs several times a day might be a problem, though right now the staircase is the most exercise I get. :D
