YAY, DICKIE!!! I don't think he should un-message it. I feel SO BAD for "bride's" daughter. I hope she comes out of all this OK. Please keep letting Dickie take care of it!
I AGREE!

Do you only equate the word "want" to someone who is actively pursuing what that want is?
If a fat person is not working out and eating right, does it mean they don't want to be thin?
If a blind man is not actively involved in vision research, does that mean he does not want to see?
I don't equate a lack of action to a lack of want.
I WANT to be a millionaire. I likely never will be. But if someone offered me million bucks, I'd take it. If someone stepped forward and offered to pay for their wedding, do you think they'd accept the offer? If the answer is yes, then I can't see how you say they don't really want to get married.
Okay, I'll rephrase. They don't want it badly enough to do anything but talk about it.

No, Dickie has it right and he's willing to take it on. Let him. Do not let these people rule YOUR life. He's right about safe, family and being honest.
Dickie is 100% right: This is about the safety of the kids. The family DOES deserve an explanation. If she were telling the truth, she'd be bitching about it to you sisters directly. She wouldn't be able to let it go. She's lying.

DogS. I have two and they're 14 and 15 years old. They can't hold it for 9+ hours anymore.
Just a couple a whiners. Mine are 13 and 11. They're on their own for about 10 hours. I come home and sometimes they are barely even interested in going outside. I walk in, head to the back door, and they just stand there looking outside then turn and head back inside. Its a Pug world, baby.

Then it's a perversion of justice. How can a man be charged with TWO counts of manslaughter if only one kid died? He was railroaded by anti-gun nuts. This conviction should be overturned on appeal.

Jess: I was up with loud/severe storms 3:30 to 4:30 this morning, so I turned on the TV to find out what was going on. After I got the weather info,they went back to their hollywood entertainment show. They were showing James Gandolfini (sp?) from "Inside the Actor's Studio." Very good interview. He talked about going to Rutgers and how his parents, especially his mom, ingrained in him that he was going to go to college no matter what.

He gave his parents all the credit for his success, since they worked so hard for their children.

Wow. This is why I support our local thrift shop. Workers make minimum wage (at least) and the profits fund local programs and shelters.

I rollerbladed and played hockey last night, then played hockey again this morning. All good.

Then, I went through the Starbucks drive thru and the cashier accidentally dropped my gift card when she was handing it back to me. Trying to Cirque do Soleil myself out of my car to pick it up, I think I pulled every back muscle I have. Hooray!

I did get a free drink out of it, though. I didn't ask; they fling those coupons at you anytime anything doesn't go quite right.

How much do those things cost?
I grind and brew my own coffee, and to brew a pot with 3 cups of water costs me about 0.16 that gives me one giant cup of coffee and enough caffeine for my day.

I mostly go there for the breakfast sandwiches. Two sandwiches and a trenta iced tea were like $10. It's definitely not an everyday thing for me.

Bad storms came through here in the night (3:30 a.m.).

Friends' power went out at 3:30 a.m. At 3:45 there was a really loud clap of lightning or thunder that woke their toddler up and she was screaming in her room. b/c no power, her nightlight wasn't on -- for the first time. Mom went to check on her and Rory was saying "Mommy my eyes aren't working!"

I never called you a liar, I said the story was bs. And in the technical sense, it is. So booya, my streak of never bring wrong still stands!

Sigh. Kim Karstupidian and Kanye Ego West named their baby North West.
