Reasons for celebration

1. Another blow for the current administration, which has been, to my mind, intent on "saving" America by rendering its laws moot and its promises null and void.

2. Erstwhile rock band Toto has dissolved because their lead singer can no longer perform their hits "with a straight face." Kudos to him for recognizing that just because one can, one need not necessarily try to do the same things at 50 as he did at 19.

3. Old tenants are being replaced by...hot single dad! Who has an awesome daughter! More about this later; I'm in the throes of pre-vacation packing and rental negotiations before we leave for an ill-timed restful vacation in the hot, sodden, wind-swept Midwest. Oh well, our friends have air-conditioning and, we hope, a sturdy roof. And sandbags. And a cellar, like in the Wizard of Oz. And an escape route. And an amphibious vehicle.

Hot single dad?! I can't wait to hear more.

Well, "single" in that he's not married, although he did mention a girlfriend. Once. Who's in the other part of the state. I refuse to think about her.

On the other hand, I do have Mrs. Roper anxieties.

Damn, I always liked that "Africa" song.

I am with Snick. Girlfriend be damned. But also? The cool daughter is a gigantic bonus.
Sorry to be so late to this. Hope you are having a great vacation.
