Peter Falk is dead and Glen Campbell has Alzheimers.

Ain't life a bitch.

Kids are out of school

Yesterday was the last day of school and Monday they start Summer Adventure Day Camp , so today is their lazy day.  When I left Willis was all snuggled up with Alex in the chair.  Alex won "Most Likely to Get Caught Chewing Gum" in his class and Henry won "Shortest".  Yay for summer!

Spreading the word at McD's (warning: run-ons ahead; don't hate)

K, so i deposited my check from the gubment (say it out loud; it's fun) at the bank by my work because it was too early at the bank by my house.  there was no way i was going to try starbucks there, as the line was mad long.  headed over to fm and was startled by the hold-up protective sneeze guard that had been installed at the chase branch.  imagine the old-timey banks with the tellers in the windows, only clear bullet-proof plastic.  finished up there and headed to sbux, where i turned right back around and headed back to my car once i saw the super long line.  no worries;  i'll hit mcd's.  the drive-thru window line was incredibly long, so i headed inside.  although the kid needed to confirm that iced americanos were on the menu, he didn't look at me like i had 3 heads, unlike the mcd's by my house.  my americano took at least 3 cups to make, but i'm worth it.  i did apologize for all the trouble because that's what i do.  next dude ordered straight espresso, remarkable to the counter peeps because of the lack of froo-froo (sugar, cream, water, etc.)  the gentlemen was most pleased at his espresso and discussed briefly with what appeared to be a manager (former?) who previously confirmed with a worker that a plain muffin and a sausage mcmuffin are nearly the same price ($1.09 vs. $1.10) because the mcmuffin is on special.  apparently an earlier patron had inquired.  back to the espresso convo; i commented as i left with my americano that during WWII american GI's found the espresso in italy too strong, so they watered it down, thus the *eponymous drink name.  ya learn something new every day.
and there you have it.

*i have always wanted to use this word since i read it in a paper about ramos cells a few years ago.

Both?  Swass is not so nice.
