    Getting to Know You

    And that’s why a large Mexican grocery store near a county homeless shelter I stayed at and a non-profit that used to serve the homeless requires that all backpacks be left at the register area. ;–) That’s something that wouldn’t happen in most suburbs, they’d figure out a different way to cut their losses from shoplifting because their clientele wouldn’t put up with it. In more urban neighborhoods, policies like that are more accepted as the norm. It might not be strictly legal, but their customers will still shop there anyway. (At least in California, Best Buy and Fry’s Electronics are not legally allowed to force you to let them inspect your bags as you exit unless they suspect theft. Costco can do it because it’s part of their membership agreement. At Best Buy and Fry’s, I just hold up my receipt as I walk past their inspectors at the door – anyone who lets them look inside their bags is volunteering to allow it.)

    Most teenagers would love having nearly any kind of cake – fruit cake being an exception for many. ;–)

    Chapter 2

    I think it would also depend on what sort of child custody arrangement Richie’s mom and Dick had, if they had any written agreement at all. Dick might have just moved out of the house and in with Mrs Brumbaugh and her kids. Dick's behavior is embarrassing to everyone around him. Dick is egotistical and ill-mannered. Considering the fact that Dick abandoned his family, I’m not certain that his lawyer can guaranty his being awarded custody against his wife’s wishes and the children’s opposition. There are courts which would not automatically give the children to a sperm donor who is judged unfit. And there are plenty of witnesses to his bad behavior. To a certain extent, children are legally considered their parents’ possessions. ;–) But I’m no lawyer and I think individual states would have varying precedence and laws that would affect any decision. We can pretend that they live in a state where Dick is right and the wishes of a deceased parent are ignored. A state where biology is more important than fitness as a parent. :–(

    @Parker Owens can get his own Mafia Don? ;–)

    Meeting Max

    Whoever designed the area and either placed the rock there or left it where it was clearly understood that people would need a place to sit to contemplate the changes in their lives or unwind from the stress from those changes. The rock is placed near the river so you can view the water flowing and the waterfowl congregating in the vicinity. A very peaceful and inviting space. Such a clever designer (Timmy)! ;–)

    Chapter 16

    The Tesla Powerwall seems to be such a logical thing to own in a rural area like Hailey. Especially when you are producing your own electricity with sometimes unreliable renewable sources. I wish I could get something between a UPS and a Tesla Powerwall for my apartment for those occasions when the power goes out. I need to get a larger UPS so I can stay online for more than an hour when there’s a power outage. (The DSL modem, the Airport Basestation, and the router are the only things attached to the UPS – the laptop runs on its own battery.) ;–)

    Chapter 16

    If Timothy and I were closer in age, I’d be all over him – except that people who join the FBI tend to be my political opposite! Physically though, he’s pretty much my type. Too bad he’s too young (and fictional). ;–)

    Variety can make things much more interesting! ;–)

    Distractions

    [The last time I tried to humorously refer to a few of the issues in a Comment on GA, I got scolded in public.] The creepy old men seemed to have socialization problems and used very inappropriate methods to try to catch my attention. I’m certainly not unusually good-looking and not great at approaching people men I’m attracted to myself, but I don’t think I’m quite as awkward as many of the guys who have crudely hit on me in places like Gay bookstores (legitimate, not adult stores). And now I’m probably around the same age as many of the men who offended me. ;–)

    Chapter 12

    I’m wondering if the Wilsons were aware that Brandon was Gay before they heard the session. Even if they knew, I’m sure this was a revelation for them. I wonder if the Wilsons will explore pegging in the future… ;–)

    I think the hardest part of doing research today compared with the past is filtering out all the fake and otherwise inaccurate information that’s so common on the web. It’s much easier to make up stuff while looking official. It’s good to be skeptical and cynical. ;–)

    There are research companies out there that have no idea what they’re missing by not having you working for them!

    In my mind, I always said ‘Luz’ or ‘lose.’ ;–)

    It wasn’t clear who was seducing whom. Heath thinks he was, but I’m not so sure of it. ;–)
