His parents own a farm where he grew up. I believe that is where Mike was going until he met Martha and whined about going. Mike and Liz go there every summer.
Ah. The towers in our area are unfenced. They are power towers, I think, not radio. I Googled and found they are also called transmission towers. Wires run from tower to tower. I think that is not the case with radio towers – they stand alone, wireless.
Well, Gunther is Irma’s son. Les is Al’s nephew. Not exactly cousins or brothers by marriage. Gunther is Al’s stepson while Les is Irma’s stepnephew. Two different relative tiers. Leave it to say they are related by marriage. Less complicated and less explanation.
Makes sense. They were going to be step brother-cousin. Is there even a word for Les & Gunther’s relationship>
Because Tom probably never saw one. He was not an involved father so he probably left his wife’s pregnancy to her and showed up at the hospital to take wife and HER child home without ever witnessing the birth. Then she left and he was left to raise Tiff.
I think it was Pru he was telling his story to. He liked her for a time unknowingly that she played for the other team. Pru had ways of drawing him out.
Les’s father was Officer Knox, killed in line of duty. Ann met a guy who told her to get rid of the kid if she wanted to marry him and she did. Uncle Al Gray petitioned for custody and raised him. I read the strips about Officer Knox but I don’t remember how far back they were. Pretty far back. Les was telling someone why Uncle Al raised him.
Les? I saved my sons’ ultrasound pictures too. They are precious to a mother. They were the very first pictures of our children and they are what our children looked like inside us waiting to be born. Perhaps one day you will understand when you have your own.
Anyway, yep. Looks like based on Tiff’s round eyes – contrary to her usual half-lidded versions – it is exactly the same copy she found at the McMansion. The thing is will Les let her take it? That would be a mistake. Tom will still question the origin of the ultrasound. Best bring Les over with that box and let him find the ultrasound. He has to find it himself and recognize it as the same one Ann handed to him.
Children don’t belong in those places. Pool and bar venues are often associated with crime elements such as bikers and drug dealers. This was run 30 years ago but it was true even back then. I have been to a few and I never stayed long. I was given an address and when I showed up and saw a pool hall, I went in to meet friends and said hi and bye and headed out. These places are creepy. I’m with Elly. John is naive – he seems to be in quite many instances. He came from the farm so I suspect that had a lot to do with his naive nature. And he is male – pool/bar venues are masculine places which is the obvious draw. Now a bank of pools in the chain family restaurants such as Dave and Buster? That is different. They gear to the families with kids who play a number of children games and arcades. The strip mall pool/bar or stand alone – avoid those.
Funny your mentioned that. Four streets south of my home, there are huge power towers lined up along a wash. I signed a waiver when I bought my home that I can’t sue the city for those power towers emitting something that is cancerous. I read up history on that and found some people around the towers sued, claiming they got cancer from those power towers, however, the types of cancers of those plaintiffs were not caused by emissions of cancer-causing electrical fields. That was 30 years ago and since then, there have been no new cancer cases. There is a cancer research group that comes here every 5 years to ask homeowners around here about cancer and they present the data to the city. So, I can say they don’t cause cancer. My neighborhood is a desirable area despite those unsightly power towers across numerous zip codes – believe around 100 miles across the northern part of the city.
