Sunny days, dogs, especially mine! Diet Coke, watching NCIS and Big Bang Theory on TV.

Bossy, arrogant people. People who don't "believe in OCD". Rainy, cold days. Wintertime. Large groups of strangers - being thrown into social situations with them, especially.

Happy Labor Day Buttercup. I must go google Labor Day, I cannot recall its purpose. Do you barbecue today?

Hi, Maryanne. I've been seeing an ERP therapist for over a year, but I haven't really given it a good try. Not in any disciplined way, anyway. Mostly, I just try to resist what I can when it presents itself. But as for deliberately exposing myself to something for no reason other than resisting a compulsion, I haven't done that. It's good to hear it worked for you, though. Between you and Pat, that's a good recommendation for it.

How is your Labor Day weekend going?

Maryanne, Have you read any of your "mindfulness" literature? Which book have you got. I am working on a mindfulness workbook which is fantastic. How was the birthday party. Life never stops hitting us does it? Now my friend Bev, the old lady across the street, her son's fiancee, who is in her fifties, stroked out or something yesterday at the store while buying some sandals and is now in the intensive care unit. I will find out more today. I was just walking up to the park with Otis for my evening ERP therapy when she ran out to talk to me about it. Lucky I have Otis to get me out of the house at night. We played street ball (not basketball, Gram!) until 7:30. I have become a party animal for sure. Excuse the typos, but I won't go back and fix them anymore.

Soft rock, '70's and '80's music. Some classical music for background - I find it soothing.

Anything about Abraham Lincoln - he's my hero! Murder mysteries.

Reading, gardening (flowers), crossword puzzles. Visiting historical homes/landmarks.
