He’s going to have an album’s worth of these by the time he heads back to Oklahoma. (Soon, I hope. Very soon.)

Hmmm, what might **** mean...lumpsacks? Dumpsacks? Mallsacks? Bluesacks? Blogsacks? Flagsacks? Poolsacks? I feel like I’m so close to the right answer but I just can’t quite seem to find it...

He’s the kind of guy who deserves the title “hero.” Few are truly worthy of it and it gets thrown around too easily, but in this case it’s no exaggeration. Truly inspiring and moving, especially as we learn more about the shooter himself.

You know that feed? Just replace the endless scream reply with what I said above as a reaction to about 95% of any given day’s news.

Couldn’t even tell whether that was parody or reality!

And if you think having guns so easy to purchase around Chicago doesn’t result in guns making their way into Chicago, then I’ve got some fantastic oceanfront property in Arizona you’ve just got to see.

Do you know anyone with a developmental disability who might’ve once been called “retarded?” Any iteration of it is offensive. Second, it’s “murder problems,” not “murders,” and I think the term you want is “homicide rate.” Finally, it’s that *they’re* near Chicago, not “their.”

Would we have ever been aware of these allegations of impropriety if Trump hadn’t nominated him?

One of my girls had a brief but passionate obsession with Instagram hedgehog accounts. I have to admit they were adorable - wee rain hats and slickers, tiny beach chairs, made-up plots...talk about going down the rabbit hole! (Or the hedge-hole, perhaps...🤔)

Ah yes - when in doubt, always reach for Chicago....while conveniently ignoring the far looser laws surrounding it, particularly in Indiana, and factors like straw purchases.

Every week or so one emerges from the bushes by my door to scare the life out of me. Next time I’ll try to capture it and ship it to you so you can have an Armadillo Day. 😂

Amen! He’s the kind of person *anyone* can look up to and admire for his selflessness, quick thinking, and bravery. His humble attitude since has made him even more worthy of admiration, in my eyes. Imagine how differently it might’ve gone if not for him...
