I don't like lots of the humor these days either---too much about sex and bad words. I do like "The Big Bang Theory" and "Young Sheldon," too. I even laugh out loud occasionally with them.

I used to watch "Red Skelton" and "Jackie Gleason." My dad especially liked Red Skelton. Some of his things were funny. I remember "Gertrude and Heathcliff, the two sea gulls" and the hobo who got into a bathtub and pulled a window shade over himself.

"The Carol Burnett Show" had some funny scenes. I liked it. I do like some stand-up comedians, although they tend to be raunchy, such as Wanda Sykes.

I don't have many people to talk to in real life either. I haven't made any new friends to replace ones who have died or who I have moved away from, since COVID is keeping me mainly inside. My last therapist said I didn't really need her, but I just needed a friend to talk to, How true. SO, I'm really glad you folks are here.

Yeah the last therapist I saw said the same thing, that I didnít need a therapist. So this is where I get my social needs met.

Me either. Our interests, hobbies, activities, trips, etc.Been called a prude since I donít like the raunchy humor of today. I like those mentioned along with Bob Hope and old teams like Laurel and Hardy or Abbott and Costello.

Sometimes think I was born in the ďwrongĒ era for that reason,along with never fully embracing technology. Itís forced on us. Thankfully I can watch old showsÖironically due to technology and way more networks than the 3 we had as kids!Our interests, hobbies, activities, trips, etc.

If I had enough genuine friends I never would have had to see a therapist. I remind myself of what we talked about and how well I manage without friends. Yeah I do but that doesnít mean I donít want friends still.

Carol Burnett was funny alright along with Lucille Ball who mentored Carol. Anne Meara and Phyllis Diller were funny too. I like a few more ďnewerĒcomedians like Billy Crystal and Robin Williams, the latter we sadly lost.

I come on here for my emotional and intellectual needs. Even the book club isnít what I hoped due to a couple of overbearing and long winded women.Our interests, hobbies, activities, trips, etc. At least on here I could scroll past them,lol. Donít have to hear or see them either. One of them always has a scowl on her face. I try not to look at her and try to tune her out too.

Thought I finally got a new hairdresser but even she abandoned me. This last appointment she didnít show and didnít even call to cancelÖ.until the end of the day. And even then it could have been cause I left her a message asking where are you????

How unprofessional and a deal breaker. Now I have to look again for someone. Before this appointment she got the time down wrong and I waited a half hour. Given all going on I wanted to cut her slack and give her another chance. Then she does this.Our interests, hobbies, activities, trips, etc. In her message she didnít even sound truly sorry.

I asked in my message why she didnít call right away and she didnít call back this time. I know she needs the business so why not appease me by offering a discount? I lost time but I could save money. Her English isnít good and she could come from a culture where time isnít as important. Or ignoring a customer who had an appointment.

Donít mean that as racist but there are cultures that are much slower paced than us. Here you say you have to cancel, donít just not show up.

Know this is off topic but seems to me society had better manners in the old days. Sick of people acting like my time and me as a person donít matter. I do matter.Our interests, hobbies, activities, trips, etc.

I liked bob hope and George burns. I loved the rode movies with hope and Crosby too, they were just for entertainment, no messages, just sit back and enjoy.

And she's a very busy executive kitty. I like that! Good sense of humor....

I find myself mostly watching reruns of old shows, since I don't care for many of the new ones.

I'll be checking here every day now, looking forward to getting together with you all.

I'm sorry your new hairdresser didn't work out, owl. Maybe the lady doesn't understand manners in the U.S. Where is she from? I have a Korean friend who used to be my hairdresser. She's quite a character, even by Korean standards.

Thanks. Businessman, business woman, business kitty....

I watched a Laurel and Hardy short this morning. It was silent but still funny, as the humor was the physical kind.

I don't know where the stylist is from but her English isn't good. I asked her if the number on her business card is her CELL and I even POINTED to it in her hand. She said yes! It turned out not to be and she had a different number for her cell, which has a Caller ID of a plumbing company so I thought it was a telemarketing call.

Finally heard from her this past Monday morning and she seemed contrite enough; I asked did some kind of emergency happen and she said yes. Said she was distracted. (The number I left a message on was what I thought was her cell number, at that time.....)

Being that I DO have a heart and know how we can be distracted, especially with the world's woes, I gave her a THIRD chance this morning. We were to have an appointment and this time I waited just 15 minutes, not a half hour! It was hot and I'm sitting on a uncomfortable bench! No show! And no call/text on MY cell or at home either. Deal breaker! I can't keep doing this. Seems having a heart cost me my time but I can't help myself.....We all get distracted at times.

I stopped by another salon near by and they charge way more! Sigh.....It shouldn't be this hard.

And with all that's going on these days, I really needed to splurge and treat myself. And I need stability and routine. I need that no matter how old I am. Seems I'm hard-wired that way.....Need to have some kind of constant or routine.

Yeah, you've given that lady every fair chance. I hope you find a good, reasonable hair dresser soon.

Thank you. My gut said don't do it, but my hair is so unruly now.... She did good work but I need somebody to be ON TIME. And speak English better for crying out loud. It causes communication problems and frustration.

I just go to a chain hair cutting place. They never have the same person twice in a row but it is affordable and so far my haircuts are from fine to exceptional. I tipped the exceptional lady a very good tip. I like it because itís no fuss and I donít have to chat. I explain that when I take my hearing aids out I wonít be able to hear. They have been great at not trying to chat with me. You can do everything on line, sign in pick a time, get up dates on timeline and arrive minutes before and sign in electronically, my name comes up on a screen and presto, Iím getting my hair cut. Since I started aqua fitness I keep my hair short. I think it might be called a pixie Iím not sure. The first time I was there I showed the woman what I wanted because I had very long hair. After that I just tell them to shorten it up and they all do it a bit different. It keeps things fresh. All in all Iím pleased with them.

I'm looking for a more personal touch so have stayed away from chains. Doing everything online isn't convenient for me. Tech is weird at times, unpredictable and frustrating. I prefer a phone call or in-person visit to make an appointment. A few places are within walking distance here. The isolation of the last two years, roughly, has made me crave face to face contact and to have the stability of the same person. Just like I have I go to the same cashier at the same grocery store. Stability and familiar people. I've had enough change since 2020.

Sometimes I feel like chatting, if it's with the right person. I sure miss my old stylist of 27 years. She retired and I haven't found anything even close---personality wise or skills wise.

Need to regroup from this latest disappointment before trying yet another salon....I really needed a treat and haven't even been motivated to do a chore or two. Maybe I already said that, LOL. I'm just so irritated so that's one reason I can't watch January 6th hearings.
