    With fifteen percent unemployment, it's gonna be a bit of a haul to get back to whatever the new normal is.

    My heart goes out to folks who are losing their federal Unemployment Bonus of $600/week right now. That's messy.
    Mine too.

    Took the youngest in for his annual physical with his pediatrician, you know, check out everything that isn't tumor related. She helped me press upon him that he has to wear his back brace because his scoliosis has gotten worse and if it gets too much worse, he may be facing surgery and potential disability.

    He's also probably only to grow another inch or so which will mean he will wind up the shortest of my sons by a couple of inches. He doesn't care about that. And alas, the excitement over breaking 100 pounds on the home bathroom scale was dashed at the doctor's office where he weighed 95. I told him he can get there, sooner rather than later, if he ups the candy and burger intake.

    I used to endorse this sort of diet.

    Shall we all send him bags of M&Ms? I think I recall this being a favorite - but could be making it up.

    Please clarify - is the "(not Susan Collins)" directed to the woman eaten or the shark?

    We have about 1/3 acre here at Stately Turk Manor. I use regular Sears mower (self-propelled). We have an annoying slope in the front yard that is steep enough to walk across to mow. Takes about an hour or so. My definition of gardening means: "has to be green and fit under the lawn mower. I am told by some of the older neighbors that they used to have annual riding mower races. "Be still, my beating heart!!" Papa Turk bought a new mower and the self-propelled boost helps a lot on his mostly flat yard...

    No idea, but wherever she was she was expressing deep concern about something.

    Ha, Candygram was just terrific. Hot tip of the day is that if you should avoid swimming where there are lots of seals.

    I have a confession to make. I have lived in NC all my life, and I ordered a fake Christmas tree yesterday. I'm still having trouble dealing with the . . the . . . guilt? As part of my penance, I know I will be sweeping up past years' needles for years to come.
