    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Thunder and lightning here on the west side of Cleveland, still waiting on the rain. Temp was cooler today. mid 80's instead of 90's, but still very humid/
  2. These two aren't both in their mid 20's though. As noted above, Josie is still a teen and Kelton is 24.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    The video of Baby Shark is from just a few years ago, but the song itself has been around for decades. There is a version that is sung with hand gestures to portray the various sharks that is popular with summer camps and Girl Scout meetings, etc and that's been around for a long time. I think it originally started around the time the movie 'Jaws' came out and people were shark-crazy.

    Well, since his mother called him a 'toddler', I expect he's used to being treated as though he's much younger. Lady, a four year old is many things but he is NOT a toddler! She said something about a family member having been injured falling down stairs. If she wasn't just playing to the camera, I'd say she has a real psychological issue as her anxiety about accidents is out of proportion to the actual risk and she could probably do with some counseling.

    Joe & Kendra: Looking Forward To Side Hugs

    True, but I am absolutely thrilled to see him wearing a life jacket that not only looks like it fits him but appears to be fastened appropriately.

    According to several sources I've found, Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon at 10:56 PM EDT. So, in the US, the first steps on the moon occurred on July 20. Since the moon itself doesn't have actual time zones, many consider the moonwalk to have happened according to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) which is the world standard for time. In that case, the first steps were at 2:56 AM on July 21. So, either answer is correct depending on how you look at it. That cap is outstanding! ETA: Yes I am old enough to remember staying up late on a hot Sunday summer night to watch Armstrong take that small step for a man.

    Went to the Indians' game tonight. At gametime, 7PM, it was 94 out and so humid, you could cut the air with a knife. I have one of those little gizmos with a battery operated fan that also spritzes water and it came in very handy. It was still oppressively hot though. It's now almost 1AM and the thermometer says it is a refreshing 88F. Tomorrow's high is supposed to be 97F.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I think it is just a bit disingenuous to be taking selfies of yourself looking sad and serious at a museum dedicated to the memory of 6 million people who were slaughtered. Seems just a bit self involved to me. I don't need Jinger to tell me that the Holocaust was a monumental tragedy. Save the selfies for another time.
  9. When I was a resident, we had a patient who had a single baby one year, twins the next and triplets the following year. She also had a tubal ligation. Identical twins are a total fluke of nature and don't run in families. About 1 in 300 chance for anyone to have them. Fraternal twins run in families because some women are more likely to release more than one egg at ovulation and the tendency is hereditary. My mom's mother had a set of boy/girl twins who didn't survive their premature birth. One of her first cousins had two sets of fraternal twin boys and that cousin's sister had boy/girl twins. If Jill were to be pregnant with twins, she would create more drama than Shakespeare. Another miracle from Jesus and Nurie would be tasked with planning TWO 'Let's Pamper Mamma' showers as well as shill for a 'Go to Me Fund' to cover Jill's hair and makeup and a glamour photo session.
  10. I dunno, it doesn't bother me like old dudes in banana hammocks. But I am one of those weirdos who thinks pregnant women's bodies are amazing. I also agree that Amy is looking darned good and I don't blame her for wanting to document it. Quite frankly, I'd rather see these photos of Amy in swim suits on the beach than one of the 8 zillion bathroom selfies that Jessa has posted over the years wearing a T shirt 2 sizes too small with her navel popping out like the button on a Thanksgiving turkey.

    Unfortunately, I have a feeling that that could be a verbatim quote. Jinger is not exactly a deep thinker. Interesting that they even captured a somber look on Felicity's face. Or photoshopped one on her. Taking selfies at a Holocaust museum has got to be one of the most insensitive things I've seen them do. So, Jing has now been to THREE Holocaust museums. And, yet, she remains ignorant. Nonetheless.

    Exactly, this priest was actually a very nice guy. He also said the Mass at my nephew's funeral and was a big comfort to my mom at that time. He's still a priest, too, 30 years later.

    The Red Cross can't take your donation due to the blood thinners. They are often looking for volunteers to hand out cookies and such though.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    No worries, we can grant you dispensation here. My mom was not born Catholic although she raised all 6 of us in the Church, even sent us to Catholic schools. She wanted to convert but wasn't allowed due to a brief teenage marriage which was the sort of stupid stuff that prevented people from converting back in the 50's. Finally, in her late 50's, my mom developed serious health problems and was scheduled for a risky surgery. My sister asked her if she wanted to be baptized still. She did. My sister had a friend whose hubby worked at a church and she was able to arrange for the young, hip associate to do the honors since times had changed and the Church was no longer chasing people away (at least not for divorce). None of us had met the guy until he came to the hospital to baptize her. We 3 oldest daughters were there along with my father. When the priest walked in, we 3 turned to one another and simultaneously whispered, 'What a waste!'. He was quite the looker. He was also wearing a tweed jacket and loafers with argyle socks which caused my father to turn to my sister and ask where she found this guy, surely argyle socks were against the rules. My dad forever after referred to him as 'that sporty priest that baptized your mother'. BTW, I am my mother's godmother. My mom remained a faithful Catholic for the rest of her life.
  15. I think it is possible that the kids went to the library and she discovered that books like Heather has 2 Mommies, Harry Potter and the Wizard of Oz were on the shelves in the children's section and she was livid when the librarian refused to remove them.
