Mug Shot Monday

Certainly there had to have been a more receptive audience somewhere for this cop's GENITAL PEEPSHOWS ... 

Song of the Day: 'How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?' by the Bee Gees

Got a little melancholy thinking about my parents when this came on yesterday at Rite Aid. But then I spoke to them in their hotel room in New Mexico -- they had to stay another night because the city agency that picks up scattered belongings after highway accidents isn't open on weekends -- and was heartened by the resilience I heard in their voices. They're sad their SUV, RV and dream were all totaled. But they assured me they would "be OK" and that we'd all get together to visit my brother Bill's final resting place as soon as they're recovered. It may not mend a broken heart, but it's a start.

Family Matters

With my mom checking out the new RV in April

My parents were 286 miles into their cross-country road trip to visit their East Coast family and my brother Bill's final resting place, pulling a brand-new travel trailer, when they got into an accident that sent their Ford Expedition and "home away from home on wheels" flipping repeatedly before landing in a ditch on the side of the highway in Deming, N.M. They are both miraculously alive. But my mom, who already has osteoporosis and a reconstructed spine with a rod in her back, got the worse of it, and is awaiting X-rays for a possible broken collarbone and ribs. My heart is broken for them -- this trip was a lifelong retirement dream of theirs that was already tainted by my brother's death -- but more than anything I am just thankful they are relatively OK.

UPDATE: Mom has one hairline-fractured rib but no surgery required. They’re very shaken and sore, but seem to be coping as well as can be expected. My wonderful brother-in-law (Anthony) is going to get them tomorrow. ❤️


Hope you’re having a great weekend ... however you choose to spend it.
