It brought back a lot of great memories- roommates (esp. Kate and Audrey), football games, dances, lip-sync contests (yes, me- I can't believe it either), rock-climbing (or pretending in my case), scrounging for quarters to do laundry, all nighters to get homework done, all nighters getting nothing productive done, Taco Time runs when Audrey was working.... I would have posted a few pics but I am too lazy to figure out how to scan them in- yes, it was that long ago- long before digital cameras!
It was so much fun seeing Felicia though! She came back with great college stories and truly she has become such a great person!
Even on Thanksgiving break the homework still comes- there was always a professor who seemed to get joy from that-welcome to college!
This is just a little addition for Heath- the homemade rolls you missed out on by messing with Thanksgiving- maybe if you are real nice we could be persuaded.....

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." John Fitzgerald Kennedy
But fame is theirs - and future days; On pillar'd brass shall tell their praise; Shall tell - when cold neglect is dead - "These for their country fought and bled." Philip Freneau
"When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep?" George Canning

On to the King County charter amendments. More of the same.....
Okay, more state and local offices, and then.......

My first impulse was to dig in my heels- "Never, Never, Never give up" came to mind- after all, you can't give in to ultimatums and threats and still maintain your self-respect or standing in the world (or at least the Pritchard et al. world.) Plus, by the mere act of writing a post, I am in effect going completely against the theme and title of my blog- a point which surely could not have been lost on my astute opponents!
Regrettably, I have been overcome by their combined powers of persuasion and the fear of losing my #1 source of entertainment (especially while at work.... wait, I mean during my required-by-law scheduled work breaks.) Yes, their blog entries have not only entertained me but even more importantly, they have instructed me wisely on what to think and what opinions to adopt- priceless- who else would be willing to selflessly tutor a simple, un-opinionated person like myself? I am left with no other choice but to acquiesce. So here it is- the under-anticipated first official Lazy J posting.
Sadly, I'm sure I would be a great disappointment to our good friend WSC- giving in to public pressure against my own principles.....
