I refuse to kiss anyone's ass. That can be detrimental in some arenas. When the emperor has no clothes, I don't ignore it.
Today Mom and I drove up to see her old house. The thing that really stood out for me is how different that neighborhood is from our current neighborhood. The area around there is pretty rundown. No one was out and about in her old neighborhood. And it sure is far away! But it's a beautiful day today so it was fun to go for a ride.
My poor brother. He is traveling to their new home in MO with two overly emotional women. I hope that he survives.
