I can’t wait for this series! I’m a TCM hound but there are a few here that I haven’t seen.
I especially recommend Babyface which is not only labeled ‘Wanton’ by the Catholic church (hee), but being pre-Code it really does handle some subject matter that wouldn’t have been touched even 5 years later. And it’s one of… Read more
Agreed, if you are avoiding it because it sounds ‘Unsavory’ then you are kind of reacting exactly how the Catholic church would like you to react.

If you can successfully negotiate a limited contact relationship then that is a great compromise, with a lot less guilt. The guilt I still feel, that she ‘really isn’t that bad’ is something I deal with almost daily. Which is still better than the pain and anxiety I used to have. Best wishes to you!

If the outdoors is your jam that will help you a lot, so let… Read more
And this might be really whackadoodle, but check into Sunset (SR900) out of Issaquah into Renton. I used to commute from Mt. Baker/Columbia City through Renton and onto 169 and through Kent. It may have not been the fastest but it was more pleasant than the 167.
