  • The strangest school year

    6/22/2021 4:57:55 AM, by JSTETSER

    6/21/2021 12:31:18 PM, by CHANGING-TURTLE

But right now all that is is a way to vent about Spark closing. So it is, we can't do anything about it, we sure don't need to overeate but ... Read more

    Since I'm still crazy after all these years, I have a therapist. Instead of going into the office, we've been talking over the phone.

    I made sure I got out of the office earlier, and the "L" was much less hectic. It's been very dry, so I've had to water my garden almost daily. Since my watering wand needs to be retired, I keep getting squirted. It's a good thing it's warm, because my shoes and clothing keep getting wet. ... Read more
