The going away party last night at Ozzies was a lot of fun. Lots of good friends showed up to drink beer with me. Nick and Shawn spent the night at my house with me so none of us had to drive. Thank you to everyone who made it!
I visited my great great auntie Em today. After seeing an old picture of my grandfather putting bunny ears on her, I thought it would be kind to visit Auntie Em in her assisted living home. I am happy that I did, she was really happy to see me. I hate that old people in our society are so segregated from the rest of people.… read more “Great great Auntie Em”
