[Comments] (5) Jingle: We rolled all the coins and I am taking them to put in my poor savings account. I kept the currency out--two months of paying Irma, one month of paying Juan, haircuts for Sadie and me, and an envelope full of tens to partly pay Irma with in December. I sure hope they don't make me unroll all the coins. I'm going to the credit union this time. Last time I rolled a bunch of change they made me undo it, but I think it was at Vons.

I haven't been to Vons since the strike. I like our local independent,Youngs, I like Green Frog for their beef, and I really like our new Albertson's. Albertsons has a partnership going with Savon, so there is a drugstore right in the grocery store, which is handy for me if I need cough syrup or something. The local independent and Green Frog don't reliably carry a selection of toiletries and OTC meds. Or film. For prescriptions I still have to go to Walgreen's because of my insurance, but I can drive through, and mostly I get meds mail order anyhow.

Tomorrow. Midweek. I wish it were the end.

I wish I had enough 'jingle' to fly you out to Kansas so I could show you the Merc! I miss you!

I just read your talk on "Being a Single Parent." Wow. There was some stuff in there I didn't know. For example, I didn't know that Roy went less-active, nor did I know that you dropped out of law school. I knew you planned on attending, but didn't know you had actually started and dropped out at your spouse's wish. I want you to know mom, that I am the opposite of that, and am always encouraging Susie to have extracurricular activities. If she wanted law school, I would give it to her. But alas, she doesn't. But I try to give her what she wants, and let her decide what those things are. Susie hasn't fully explained the Richardson family history to me, though I have prodded from time to time.

We are happy to have you, and I liked the quote "The best things in life aren't things."

OK--so that didn't post and now it has posted twice. Is it the system--or the user?
