Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Ol’ Robbo has noticed a handful of “Resist” and “Impeach Trump” bumper stickers of late whilst making his way to and from the Imperial Swamp, er, City.

I’ve also noticed something else: that said stickers seem inevitably to be attached to vehicles driven by total jack-waggons. One clown road the port swiller backside all the way down the GeeDub this morning. Others I’ve seen lane-surfing, refusing to allow mergers, and generally exhibiting maximum obnoxiousness.

So my question is: is this behavior a deliberate ploy of the “Antifap” or whatever it is, or is it just natural of the kind if arsehole who would carry such stickers?

Or should I be embracing the power of “and” here?

Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Whelp, it’s official: Eldest Gel appeared last Thursday with a car full of dirty laundry and dorm junk, and this afternoon she turned in the last of her take-home finals.  How in the heck do I have a rising college sophomore?

The Gel did very well her first year, by the way.  Good grades, tapped into the theatre club, and a reputation as a thorough and uncompromising skeptic of all things P.C.

Perhaps not coincidentally, this afternoon we got a notice from the U.S. Postal Service stating that the Gel’s O-fficial mailing address has now changed from her school P.O. Box to Port Swiller Manor, and will remain so through mid-August.

Granted that it’s been thirty-mumble years since Ol’ Robbo was an undergrad, but I have no recollection whatsoever of anything like this happening with me.  (Perhaps my parents never told me.). And I lived off-campus most of my law school days and certainly do not recall sending any change-of-address forms in to the post office.

Strange.

By the bye, the Gel’s plan for next year involves becoming more social.  (She wanted to concentrate on getting herself into college academic mode this year.)  If any friends if the decanter know a nice young man at VMI or Hampden-Sydney, well, let me know.
