Talk To Me

Firstly, many thanks to James Hudnall (link at left) for the kind mention in his blog. If you're here from there, welcome. Glad you made it. Hope you'll come back, and maybe even stick around.
From the Oops, I Forgot Dept.:
The finalization paperwork for my divorce showed up Wednesday. As of right now this minute, there's been no word from my ex.
Well, she may have accepted that she didn't do what she promised she would, and that I was right to get it done. On the other hand...well, you never know.
I'll keep everyone appraised.
Found this in the news last night:
The problem, according to Armstrong: her 10-year-old twin girls and 8-year-old son speak English. She says school administrators told her the route had been designated for non-English speakers only.
Armstrong says she had to leave work early on Wednesday to pick up her stranded kids from Phalen Lake Elementary School.
St. Paul schools spokeswoman Dayna Kennedy acknowledged Thursday that school officials handled the situation poorly, but said language had nothing to do with the incident. The reason Armstrong's children were ineligible to ride the bus was that they lived outside the school's attendance area, she said.
"It is our responsibility to ensure the safety of these kids, and we made a mistake," Kennedy said. "The kids should have gotten home that day."
The bus route was meant to serve a language academy at Phalen Lake for children learning English.
The Armstrongs said they learned that when they moved last year, they landed outside of Phalen's attendance area.
I actually found the two cartoons that I referenced yesterday.
This one was done during World War II. This one replaces Elmer with a caricature of the old character Stepin Fetchit. Except for the end, Elmer could have fit in this one perfectly - except for the end, it's a typical Bugs romp.
Both are not safe for work. Or the thin-skinned.
Today is laundry day. I also have a couple other errands to run.
Be seeing you.
