“She'd never mastered the talent for apologizing, but she appreciated it in other people.”

― Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters

You really should read Terry Pratchett's Discworld books, mainly the Witches series.

Granny Weatherwax can certainly outdo Baba Yaga (both are my favorite crones ) You have to admit, evil (or chaotic neutral) coming to the aid of a child to punish an evil step mother who dared send a child into the woods. Not a smart move.

One more for the road:

"Granny sniffed. ‘Do they speak highly of me?’ she said.

‘No, they speak quietly of you, Esme.’

‘Good.’"

- Terry Pratchett

Oh wow. I never give a simple yes or no answer. We had a boarder line personality disordered mom (narcissism). Our mom was a master at denial and trivializing and diverting. I have gone to therapy for her behavior. That was years ago and our family is much better. Our mom passed away and this allowed my siblings and I to come together. Though I have gotten better at over explaining, it still happens from time to time. Good read.

There are very good take aways in this article. The other day I read a "Dear Abby" style article on Slate. A female and her partner received a million dollar inheritance from her grandfather. She and her partner cared for him in his declining years. He left all his money to them not to the rest of the family. Guess what? the family who neglected him and her (she was gay and the family did not approve) are not happy, but now are hounding the granddaughter. They worked hard to make sure he was comfortable and happy. That is work.

There is a Slavic saying, "No my monkeys, not my circus."

From my series “End of the Road”. Found items that are on the last leg of their Thrift store journey, where I leave them.

Sporky reads “If Wishes Came True”

If wishes came true, little Sporky would be finding a home from this thrift store. This is the end of the road for Sporky as this is not just any thrift store. It is the pound store or as us pickers will call it, “The Bins”. This is the end of the road. Items that did not sell at the other company owned thrift store find their way to this place.
