    Underwater mortgage, bank working with us to make a sale, somehow. Found a buyer and signed the paperwork.

    Two days later, the bank foreclosed…..

    NBD, except that forclosure is still on the FICO….

    Ain’t that the truth….

    I’m essentially retired now, but spent quite a few years as a Consultant in the Data Processing field (and PC’s, too).

    Nephews are the scourge of my industry…. The kid heads off to College, or gets buried by homework, and somebody calls me to fix something.

    Once in a while I find a gem, but usually they’re so bad that I can’t even tell the client. Money for me, usually, but….

    When the mud monster just started to talk, she was, of course, semi-intelligible. I decided to learn her language and let her pick up on mine at her convenience.

    Drove my wife nuts! I could talk to the kid, but she couldn’t….

    (NBD – her vocabulary was about 30 words.)

    Shortly afterwards, when she’d developed some ability in my language, she noticed that the dog didn’t talk. (She’d thought that he was a somewhat self-directed stuffed animal!) She asked me: “Will Spunky be able to talk when he gets bigger?” Couldn’t explain that the answer was no, and that he was about ten years old.

    (Very smart dog, though!)

    The kid thought that she was a dog, btw, until my sister’s four little ones turned up. They taught her to walk.

    The mud monster had a little girlfiend (that’s not a typo) who was a year or so older than her. One day the fiend turned up for a visit and spotted a toy on the floor. She dove on it hollering MINE! Becka learned….

    She also tried to change the channel on the TV with an old calculator.

    Didn’t work but it was fun to watch….

    Dad was a Dentist. Even hint at a loose baby tooth and….

    He told me that if I didn’t take care of ‘em, I’d not have any by the time I grew up. Fooled him, but, come to think of it, I only have about six left at 68….

    Had a loopy co-worker who was convinced that various local politicians and other money folks who were supposed to be deceased had faked the paperwork, and were living it up in FL….

    The mud monster, now 28, had two major early frustrations with TV. First, she couldn’t take things off the screen when a nice toy showed up, and second when an old calculator didn’t change the channel.

    Hm… A frog not liking water, I don’t know….

    But Meg is so cute….

    It’s important to remember that “Penates” is a plural noun here – not the name of any particular diety.

    The “mainline” Gods, like Jupiter, received “mainstream” recognition and worship, but the average citizen who wasn’t part of some cult or other, felt that his Lares and Penates were far more important. (The Lares – again, a plural noun, and not the name of a particular diety – were apparently guardians of the hearth.)
