    The "what's On Your Mind?" Thread -2019

    I am not looking forward to having snow now that I live in Reno, NV. It has been miserably cold every morning (25F and lower) with not a cloud in the sky and since I live on top of a hill which is much higher than the part of Reno where all the casinos are I am told I will have snow to shovel...

    Haven't been here for a while because of the move but I am now in my permanent quarters although a long way from settled in. The garage is still full of boxes, my dining table is still in pieces with the chairs in some boxes buried somewhere so I am eating off my card table which is half stacked...

    Because I am not young anymore and do not want to leave a cat behind to grieve I have not adopted a cat under 5 years old in over 5 years. Senior cats have a hard time getting adopted so I have made it a rule not even to look at kittens and never think about a cat that is under 10 years old. I...

    Oh I am so out of step, at this time my favorite is Enya, the Irish singer/composer, i cannot stop listening to Carabbean Blue or Orinoco Flow or her version of I dreamt of Being in Marble Halls. I love ballads. Even Elvis's Love me Tender and all the other ballads he sang. Forget about the...

    As you all know I had finally moved to Reno and moving into my new permanent home on Oct 1. I got here on Aug 2 and on Aug 4 Chamouti, my 14 year old Mane Coon, got spooked, ran out the door into the backyard of my son's house and after trying 4 times to scale a 6 ft fence finally got over it...

    I've learned all kinds of awful things about the state of Nevada since i arrived here 6 weeks ago. Top of it is that they don't care about cats here. TNR seems to be unheard of, neutering is expensive so there are always more kittens that nobody wants, the feral cats breed until once every 2...

    Thanks to everybody, I just had to get this off my chest. Now I sit here nursing a drink, tomorrow I will make a on-line police report and call the store and every other business around there to see if they have cameras.

    They tore the plastic piece which was attaching the mirrors to the body of the car. I wonder if gorilla glue or something like that would work to reattach the mirrors?

    I am so p...d off. Went to the store to pick up a few items and when I got back to my car both of my mirrors had been torn off, dangling by their cables and there was a big black footprint next to where the driver's side mirror had been. Pure vandalism. Who and why would someone do this? This...

    No, it is an unincorporated part of Reno which is called "Sun Valley". The more northern part of Sun Valley used to be the local gang hangout but has been gentrified quite a long time ago and the gangs have moved elsewhere. Sun Valley then grew farther south and that part never had the gangs...

    I moved out of a whole town which was nothing but a retirement community, very pretty with every kind of amenity one could wish for. 18000 homes with no more than 30% occupied by renters. But I was priced out of there and in a lot of ways was sad to leave. I had lived in SoCal since 1971 so this...

    Hurrah, I did get the place I wanted. Signed a contract today and I can move in on Oct 1!!! Somebody still lives there but will be out by then and the place will be professionally cleaned. It has a big patio, a garage with washer/dryer, carpet only in the bedrooms, two huge walk-in closets...

    Thanks for the info, @kashmir64, at least this does not make me feel like I am a freak although 6 months seems like forever from here. Reno is ONLY 4700 ft high and I moved here from practically sea level I'm sure the 1000 ft won't make that much difference.
