We've each dyed our hair once, and #12 is priceless and perfect. Happy knitting and happy Sunday, Kwizgiver!

That's so intense about your student! I hope the future begins to look for brighter for him/her.

I understand #15. There have been three kids who used to ride my bus who have died...drunk driving, suicide, and an overdose. All of them were problem kids behavior-wise, but they all came from troubled homes, too. It broke my heart to hear of each one. You always hope that they are somehow going to beat the odds. :(

Wow, your age down to the day. I will be 54 in early June. My mother died when she was 56. It scares me.

I suspect most of us have a fear of being incapacitated. (Shudder!)
