    The funniest... I was in boot camp and likely retired before most Huddlers were born...

    So, you're admitting to having "big dreams" and that having kids wasn't part of these big dreams so you've essentially settled for something less than those dreams by having kids why? Some sort of genealogical obligation or societal demand that you must have kids?
    Screw that. My wife and I were honest and comfortable enough 20 years ago to admit we're too selfish to have kids. We like to go and do when we want, travel, concerts, just disappear for a few days at a time or just hang out at home. Get real, not everyone was meant to or supposed to have kids.

    Looks to me like you just wrote your own justification. Why not just take what you posted here and go on a mission?

    Isn't the 1990's wave most Panther fans still participate in embarrassing enough?

  5. Anybodyhome added an answer to a question Women that don't want kids. Ever.   

    Almost 60, wife is 48 and neither of us wanted kids from the get-go. We've been together 20 years and are financially able to raise a few, but that's not the point. Her mother used to give us a hard time about having kids until my brother-in-law had 2 sons. Now I have those 2 nephews and 4 nieces among a pretty close family. The whole "lonely" thing and "nobody to spend time with when you get older" is complete bullshit. We travel all over whenever we want, wherever we want... which isn't always feasible with little ones.

    Hey! I resemble that remark!
    But I couldn't find my checkbook if you paid me right now it's been so long since I used it. Can't remember the last time I set foot in a bank and stroll right past the baggage check counters at the airports, my boarding pass is on my phone and there's little I can't do with an app....

    So, what's in Kings Mountain that would attract such a place?
    And why a film studio when most of the film industry left NC when McCrory took away the tax incentives?

    Hillary doesn't need to say anything when her best campaign manager is Trump, Ted Cruz and a couple other of the Republican idiots who continue to say stupid poo.

    Check, check, check, check and check.
    And, when I decided to retire after having accomplished the above several times over, I threw a dart at a map and moved to NC on a whim. A little over a year later I attended the first Panther football game ever in Clemson...

    "Master" (named after the padlock locking a chain around his neck) is officially available for adoption. He has a clean bill of health from the vet (we have all of his records), has gained 9 pounds in little over a week, has been neutered and is estimated to be about 8 months old. He is a lab mix, housebroken, cat and kid friendly and has a great temperament and personality. We have set up a 1-year Banfield Wellness Plan for him which is transferable to the new owner. He car rides very well and has a couple basic commands down pat. Contact me via PM if there might be any interest...

    Flew into Vegas Saturday night, stayed over and were flown out on Sunday morning to the North Rim. Got back into Vegas Wednesday evening and we're staying over until Friday morning before flying home.
    Yeah, it's hot, but with no humidity it's easier to deal with than eastern humidity. One of our stops today was the Pawn Shop...

    Vacation Starts in Las Vegas
    Flew out of Raleigh Saturday morning and arrived in Las Vegas around 3PM after a brief layover in Atlanta.
    Today we make our way to the Grand Canyon where tomorrow we begin our rafting adventure on the Colorado River thru the canyon for 4 days. Been to the GC looking in from above many times but this is the first time I'll see it from inside at the bottom. We helicopter from the camp at the rim down to the river- my first time back in a helicopter since ditching in the Indian Ocean in 1985 when I said I'd never climb into another one.
    4 days completely out of touch- no cell phones, no tablets or laptops, no iPods.Just us, our packs and the Grand Canyon and Colorado River.

    The dog is mine now. Once a couple people realized my job with the city and once I got the vet's report yesterday, it's no longer an issue.
    Yes, he has intestinal parasites and needs to gain weight and strength. But he has antibiotics, special food and steroids (yes, my dog is now juicing). He has no microchip, but he does have a rabies tag. Once he gains some strength and weight, he'll be neutered and we'll find him a home. 
    It's amazing to see how an animal could have lived as he did, as hungry and sick as he was, yet have the spirit and happiness of any other puppy. I'm happy for him and he'll be tough to let go when he finds a good home.

    Not the phantom "voter fraud" argument again. It's embarrassing enough the right continues to believe this myth, but even more embarrassing when voter fraud been repeatedly disproven, yet the right continue to perpetuate that same myth.
