Re: checking in / happy fall!


Thanks for the offer but no they'd be too expensive to ship.
I thought you had a different meaning for the idiom because of the line of thought:
> Sorry I've been pretty much out of pocket lately. Once the pecans > start
> dropping, I spend hours harvesting them and...<<
I thought perhaps you meant short of time rather than money.

Means the same thing to me Kitty - LOL.  I can't shell the pecans since I
had that wrist surgery back in '91, so I give them away.  I can send you a
box if you don't mind shelling them.  I pick them up to keep the weeds out
of the lawn and flower beds.  But people are usually quite pleased to get
them.

Pecan harvest!  Yum!  Do you make pies, roast them, or just eat them au

I did some rearranging of my front room and moved the big barrister
bookcases to another room.  Underneath them were about 30 cat toys.

I've had a cracked back tooth for almost 2 yrs now waiting to get an
overlay
or crown. My insurance just this month finally kicked in to where it will
pay half when I get it done; had to pay for the insurance for a year b4
they'd cover crowns.  Still, they cost about $900 now, twice what I paid
the
first time I got one.

"Out of pocket" - to me, this means being short of money.  What does this
idiom mean for you?
