So I couldn't find the cat yesterday morning, usually when it is really sunny he will sleep on the armchair in the conservatory, nope not there, checked my bed which is his other favourite place, nope not there either, heard a kitty sigh and looked behind the curtain in my living room and there he was enjoying the sunshine having a snooze, cats can get comfy in the strangest of places lol

WhatWouldJohnCrichtonDo?

Our cats have always just appeared in our lives, but if we ever get to choose a kitty, I would love to get a ginger and white one like your Alfie. The orange cats I have known are all so sweet. What a beautiful boy he is!

Thanks @WhatWouldJohnCrichtonDo?, he is very handsome if I do say so myself. I got him from my local rescue centre and he picked me, he came over and clung to me and didn't want to let go. He was found abandoned with his mum and siblings on a beach when he was 4wks old, I met him when he was 6wks old and it felt like forever while waiting to get him home at 10wks. Here he is when I first met him.

      I heard it was verboten because of the risk of damaging the hymen so that there was no "proof" of virginity on the wedding night. I had horrific periods and started using tampons as soon as I was allowed, but one of my fundy-lite friends was horrified and that was her reason.

      This was a common thought, not just fundie. Tampax made adverts about it: http://www.mum.org/tamvirad.htm

      and  

      I will happily die on this hill...leggings and capris = so comfy, but I wanna cover the bum unless I'm working out at the gym...so tunics or longer w/ leggings for public wear. 

      I recall the Pennington girls rocking this look five or so years back.  I thought it was the perfect fundy solution -- a casual cotton knee length dress over leggings. It looked great and ticked the fundy boxes for modesty. 

      Lately I've bought a few pairs of capri leggings that have side pockets, and now that trend has spread to real bike shorts for cycling, (rather than the fashion bike shorts out this year, although I hope those have side pockets as well). 

       

      The girls of Joyous lessons blog (trad/fundie catholic) wear jersey dresses and long or capri leggings. I think of all the possible fundie restrictions on dress this is the 'nicest'. In that it is comfortable and easy to move in, they come in a variety of cuts and colours and it looks 'normal'.

      I've been making my way through the threads, and so far what I've gotten is that no one knows, but there is a lot of speculation that:

      • Steve's health is deteriorating quickly.
      • The boys have made it clear that they will not financially support their adult sisters when Steve is gone.
      • Chelsy (Bontrager) Maxwell introduced Anna and Mary to f*n and now they're getting quite demanding in their desires for it :laughing-rolling:

      But nothing is confirmed. The points above are simply the popular contemplations/assumptions in the Maxhell threads.

      I'll add one to that: Steve's health issues cost them a lot of money, so did Anna-Marie's cancer treatment - both Steve and Chris were relying on funds from Scamaritan rather than health insurance, and it's left them with bigger bills than they were expecting. 

      The boys' businesses, especially Swift Otter, were booming and they needed Sarah's (probably bargain price) labour so she began working full time, and Steve couldn't really prevent her from doing that as he needed as much money as possible to flow to the boys (and therefore also to him and Chris, since the businesses also support them). Since she has saved quite a lot of money over the year and they now accepted that she wasn't going to get married, they let her move out, probably as a pathway to buying her own place debt free and not relying on Steve and Teri's nest egg. 

      The plans still may be for the younger girls to remain in the house, but (as I a suspect is the case) they were able to earn enough scholarship $$ that they could pay for college out of their own pockets, Steve's main objections to them attending - that it would cost him money that could be used to buy a house debt free - no longer applied, and probably never really applied to girls anyway. Plus he could argue that it was worth it to improve their missionary and wifely potential.

      I don't follow the Maxwells closely. Did something happen? Why so many changes at once?
