And I bet what he ended up with was a putrid smell of skunk mixed with scented candle. Nothing can cover the smell of skunk.

It wasn't that bad. The skunk smell faded over time while the nice vanilla candle replaced it.

Yet another reason not to buy The Clapper:

Dogs. The Clapper thinks a dog barking is someone clapping really fast, and will turn your TV and lights on/off, on/off, on/off until you disconnect it. This actually happened to my dad when I was a kid, and I thought it was really funny (since it wasn't my TV). I've never seen him move so fast to unplug something. [Big Grin]

How about books from the discount table. My darling daughter-in-law got me an F. Scott Fitzgerald "Collected Short Stories" two years ago. Of course I told her it was just what I wanted. So, last year I got a "Complete Short Stories" of Evelyn Waugh. Actually they were kind of good, just dated. They were kind of like Fitzgerald with an English accent. I can hardly wait for Christmas this year!

I have no clothes from high school. My family moved while I was on my mission and my dad gave away everything that was in my closet. I wore jumpers and skirts for the first two weeks after I came home. If I was lucky, I remembered to take off the badge.

I don't keep clothes at all. There are a few classics I've had for years and one or two memory dresses, but that's all. I have a constantly-moving box to give to goodwill in my closet that gets full about once every three months.

I think it's because I am still moving around a lot. I haven't settled anywhere, so there's every incentive in the world to constantly edit.

I also feel like if you own anything, it costs not only the initial price but the price of maintenance and you lose the space it is taking up. In most cases, I'd rather have the empty space it would be taking up rather than the article of clothing or the thing.

The exceptions are books and jewelry. [Smile]
