Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

We had a family portrait taken today. It was a horrible experience for everyone involved and ended with only three survivors.

Hello FredS
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

Sweet&Sour is just 50ish miles from my house and circumstances have lined up so that we are unable to meet for a smoke and chit chat :(
It looks like I'll be back late summer timeframe. I plan to plan for an extra day, and bring my fly rod.

Last night my son asked if I'd go with him to a father/son Bass fishing tournament Sunday evening :D

I remember a while ago when you were lamenting your kids not wanting to go camping or do other outdoorsy things and I wrote that you couldn't force your will on them. You made the imprint when they were young. It's natural that they drift away from you and the things you enjoy but, if yer lucky, they'll come back 'round, even if only once in a while, to touch that thing they remember with you. I'm happy for you now and hope you enjoy yourselves Sunday.

Unfortunately, this seems like the devil's playground. I've been in portraits before and I've been testy at more than one and there've been some that fights (spats) have broken out over. I don't know if Olan Mills is a ministry of good or opportunity for evil.

The simple solution---
Go to JC Penny's photo studio (cheaper usually)
Make sure everyone has the same identical type & color shirt
Go to a bar immediately after for hard liquor.

We are an hour into my granddaughter’s college graduation and they haven’t even started calling graduate names, yet. 750 wait in line.

I saw a piece of trash on the ground that was the exact same shape as a Dublin. Rorschach would say that I'm a pipe smoker.

The book I'm working on has almost 28,000 words.
Why does Hugodrax want to suppress the Jesuits?
