It’s been such a long time. Here’s what we’ve been up to!
How much more can we take before the world overflows with hate?
It was a Jewish holiday. I had no idea what was going on in the outside world. I was making a bean sprout salad on my new mandolin. I thought that I had figured out the guard. I had not.
