Re: Breast feeding, socially unacceptable or not?

As a society we need to get real and stop getting in a frenzy over purely natural things.I chose to be child free but would prefer to be where a contented baby is quietly feeding as nature intended rather than cope with an unhappy screamer.

Re: l01 used for old jeans

I usually try to keep my jeans patched because I was bitten by a nasty insect through a gaping hole in the leg of my jeans :roll:
I favour wearing them until total rag stage as I have a great talent for getting muddy and slimy and wet
