      Sargesbrat Agree. Have been noticing his trend and why this move is such a red flag to me. Very disappointing even though I may be overreacting. I always overreact around Megyn for some reason. Who is starting the pool that he shows up?

      Roberta Terry, my aunt messaged me these pictures a couple of days ago. She kept them all these decades that was so sweet of her. I don't have them anymore because we lost them in the house fire in 2001. Needles to say I was thrilled to receive them in a message from her.
