Got hold of my daughter after she forwarded to me a text message she received from the lawn guy.

We talked about the situation, about her brother Rusty's over-reaction and that there was no... Sign in to see full entry.

Let's just say I'm not Miss Merry Sunshine this morning. For one thing we're having a helluva heat wave - just like most of the rest of the country - and since heat does me in and I have to stay out of it, I'm trapped with the stuff William Barr calls BS on TV, a ball of yarn or Facebook.

Yesterday as I checked FB for messages from friends I heard this voice from the next room, a guy with a strong Texas accent talking about the little girl who was killed at Robb Elementary in Uvalde - who could be identified only by her green Converse tennis shoes - the ones with a heart she'd drawn...

- Itall Worzen, (it'll worsen) name changed to Raglan. Found a name for the kid character: Derek (not Baron) also sorta means royal. Some folk like to name their kids a pseudonym for "king."
