i’m watching Forensic Files here and there and thinking please stay away from that head-butting girl forever, Mr Smith*. I have a strong feeling that she’s going to end up in jail, for violence.

(This would make a great song title).
Headbutting girl and I are officially no longer friends on social media nor are we texting. 8)
Good man 👍

I can imagine Rodney Dangerfield doing a bit about the whole head-butting thing.

Looks like you missed a spot, Mark.

Oh, wait, never mind, that's IL. It was clearly intentional.

If we could get the pols here to see this, maybe they would finally wake up.

Just reading about all you went through had definitely affected me....making me far more cautious than I had been...
Seems like you are already extremely careful, Vinny.

Not really. My preferred lifestyle leads to be quite protected.

But after reading about Mathjak I turned down an invitation for supper with a friend.

Father in law died in the Philippines about an hour ago in what appears to have been a COVID complication of sorts although he tested negative. It was hard to make out what was happening because I don't speak Visayan but apparently he was rushed to the hospital because he was having difficulty breathing. When he arrived there was a delay in treatment due to the necessity of following COVID protocols which was why I woke up to my wife screaming at the doctor on Facebook Messenger. Apparently he died before any treatment could be given. At least that's the story as best I can piece it together.

Oh my, that’s rough. My condolences to you and your wife and family.
The darkness will always war against the light. And the light must always war against the darkness. You either let the darkness overcome you, or you overcome the darkness. The mission: Whatever darkness, compromise, or ungodly thing still exists in your life, no matter how small, today, root it out. There is no middle ground.

Thanks. Still not sure what the whole story is but probably never will.

Kind of glad my wife's passport expired in November or we'd be on our way to the Philippines which would probably be a bad idea right now.
