I had to work today, so I missed out on my small town’s (sadly not well spread news-wise) meeting downtown. However, many of my friends (female and male! with their kids!) went to their local meetings and shared pictures and made me rather jealous... I’m loving all the pictures. Read more
Yup! The lists are my favorite part!

I met him once, and while I disagree with him politically on almost everything, he was a kind and charming man to a nervous bunch of 20-year-old college girls who were there to sing for his anniversary party (one of the more random things to happen to me in my life). I can’t forgive his son for what he did to this… Read more
