Immigration officials last week deported the spouse of a U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan in 2010, leaving the couple's 12-year-daughter in Phoenix without parents. https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/immigration/2019/04/15/ice-deports-gonzalez-spouse-u-s-soldier-killed-afghanistan/34773...

As I mentioned on Wixenstyx's Facebook, I've never watched the show because I wanted to hold off and finish the book series first. Joke's on me.

Re: Light laffs

I'm watching some episodes of Intervention Canada and in one, the cameraman has surreptitiously filmed a drug deal. One of the guys says, "That's about a point and a half, eh?" I love that in Canada even the drug dealers say "eh?"

When I was visiting Li'l Ringo in the NICU I got serious lust to acquire after seeing all the nurses' Dansko shoes. They are way out of my price range to buy just for looks, but there are some really pretty ones.

Re: DOOM! (Insert extra Os as you see fit)

Sorry, I am being confusing, I think! I mean that going back to 1950 in St. Paul, there were obviously a lot of houses that were 1,500 square feet (built around the turn of the century and still standing today). I'm just wondering where the little houses were, the ones that would have been required ...

"The National Association of Home Builders reports that the average home size in America was 983 square feet in 1950, 1,500 square feet in 1970, and 2,349 square feet in 2004. This trend continued in the first half of the 2000s, after which it began to decline somewhat." I don't disagree with that,...

Re: Dreams (not those crushed by the weight of unfulfilled life)

Last night I had two totally separate dreams where I was still working at Midwestern J Peterman, but suddenly realized I'd forgotten to go to work for a few days, so I went into the office and discovered my computer was gone so I must have been fired without knowing it.
