    Have you ever noticed a Harrier Hawk dive and capture a mouse/vole, or the like, in a farmers field while driving down a country (dirt) road?

    This morning I awoke early, 5:30, and thought I'll just get dressed and go for a stroll in the nearby forest with the dogs. When I got home about 7:00 I NOTICED I had on two different coloured socks.

    Absolutely. I wouldn't want to deal with the wrath of my other half. She is NOT an early riser.
    You don't have to deal with that anymore right?😀

    Inform your other half that when it's larks vs. owls, larks always win.

    I had tried for many years and we finally decided to agree to disagree. I noticed that it works best when there is compromise.

    No I don't, you are correct.
    But while it's true that I only got divorced
    on January 23 2013,

    I was separated from my ex since July 1995.
    I have not had any dealings at all with her since then.

    I still see my 2 daughters but not her.

    Divorce only became something that I should deal with in 2012.

    Done and dusted now.

    😀

    I suggest such "deals" made between partners, be considered "accommodating" instead of "compromising." Compromising focuses on making concessions, accommodating focuses on fitting wishes together.

    I noticed your response and felt the need to return the favour.
    There is no need for me to call anyone, thanks. I have a "few" mismatched pairs of socks. The funny thing is that if I took all those odd pairs threw them in a pile I'd have no mismatched pairs.
    I'm not the type who matches his shirt with his tie, socks with his underwear, or anything with anything.
    My other half often says (cliche to be sure but none the less true), "You're not going to wear that with that are you?" I say, "Yup".
    Oh btw it wasn't insomnia. I went to bed about 9 last night. Body said,"OK GBS you're tired, go to bed". Not one to not listen to a body that's been around as long as mine I always do what it says.

    When the professor was told by a student that one of his shoes was black and the other one was brown, he looked a bit puzzled and said: Yes I know... and the odd thing is that I have another pair just like these at home!

    Thank you for your, possibly, better choice of a word for our undertaking to solve an issue that rears it's head only on rare occasions and as I said I dress in the dark...ok not so much dressing as gathering clothes to put on in the ensuite. What I really should have done last night was, before going to bed knowing there was a good chance that I'd awaken early, to have those clothes put in the bathroom ahead of time. Hindsight is 20/20. I've now got a note attached to my side of the headboard indicating that should this happen again to prepare properly.

    I would not be surprised if they were a mirror image in terms of left and right foot.🙂
