FFS it isn't even Lent or Advent. It's not even a full moon.

Isn't this supposed to be a bit of a safe haven from the preaching and god loves you - you're going to hell types?

Facepalm

It's summertime ... bored schoolkids. We used to get waves of them this time of year back at TAF.

An alternative theory is that they were students of the designers of Boston's highways. Dodgy

For example, I-93 North is the same road as I-95 South. Facepalm

Both Nashville and Memphis were places where the Corps of Engineers tested out different entrance/exit ramp configurations, is what I've heard.

Weird shit happens. Tony Williams (as a drummer, I suspect you've heard of him) went into the hospital for a gall bladder operation or something like that, survived the operation, and then died of a heart attack as he was checking out of the hospital. I had just attended a drum clinic given by him a month or two earlier (no, I'm not a drummer -- just wanted to see him play!).

EDIT: Re-reading this after reading the responses of others, it seems a bit inappropriately "light" for the situation. Like everyone else, I do hope your dad is OK!

Free Thought how are you feeling today?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

No better than yesterday, I'm afraid... But at least I managed to get more than 2 hours sleep.

On the bright-side, this is certainly a novel experience for me.
It feels weird to swallow a thing and have only one side of my face and throat hurt from it...

Gotta be a female British band.

Really hope you're feeling better soon.
