All STOP

Well, I never got around to sending (and never received) a telegram.

Now I never will:

“The slips of paper in yellow envelopes that brought Americans urgent news of birth, death and everything in between for more than 150 years have been consigned to the wastepaper basket of history. Western Union has sent its last telegram.”

One of those things one rather imagined (as a child) one would do as an adult.

I’ve used Western Union to send money, though. S’pose that’ll have to be good enough.

Oh, and we’re moving.  To Baltimore.

We just can’t sit still…

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
