Good morning AB, All.

Happy 4th of July and AB, as always, thank you for doing this thread.

Goodness I’ve been receiving much reaction to my book. Later on I shall include links to chapter 1 and 2 and yes, I am almost done Chapter 3.

Daughter moved in across the street and already nothing-burger son-in-law is getting on my nerves. If you tell anybody I said this I shall deny.

It is, in fact, the reason why I bought them a separate house; my house is big enough for all of us, frankly, but living with him would drive me nuts.

He is-on the plus side- a very devout conservative and a very good father.

Daughter comes over and stays with me evenings when we watch Big Brother and the like. I said to Kaitlyn last night “You want to sleep over with Mom-Mom?” First, it was so nice to be able to say that. She jiggle a bit with joy, her nine-year-old self, and said she’d love it.

I am so glad they are not two and a half hours away. Now they live in the greatest place in the world to live….Sussex County Delaware.

Would y’all like a liberal story?

Went to a meeting the other night, one attendee is President of some kind of union-or used to be, not sure-and worked closely with our governor. He is , like, really out of his element here in Sussex County where we don’t like liberals, especially those from up Wilmington way.

So I tell the story of how daughter moving to Sussex county where the weather is great and getting the hell out of Merryland where they’re killing people with taxes.

He nods, this dolt from up Wilmington way who is living, please note yon readers...IN SUSSEX COUNTY AND NOT WILMINGTON-and says something like “Sussex county is cheap, that’s for sure.”

I lost it, folk. But I lost it nicely.

“Bob,” I said, consternation on my face, “you say it’s ‘cheap’ like that’s a bad thing. CHEAP is kind of derogatory. We have low taxes, don’t be so condescending.” But I was on a roll. “I notice,” voice dripping sarcasm, “that you are living in Sussex county and not that mini-Philadelphia known as Wilmington, Delaware.”

I was incensed. Liberals don’t want to admit that their way isn’t the right way.
