Lol, and you adress to them with pronouns and signs so that you won't have to say the name, which you don't know)

This happened to me a few weeks ago while visiting some relatives....and there are many who have kids and these kids have kids of theor own. This means there are a lot of people you know and care about but the names are always mixed up in my head. Luckily, most of the wives are called "Mihaela" and there us only a small chance to find the exact one that has a different name... :- D

Oh man this has been one heck of a day for me.
Grandma's car broke down so now have to take it to the repair shop some moron came to my door wanting the old house in the town of (redacted) saying it's gonna be torn down so we called the city hall they said it's not on the order.
To be torn down.
So we called the lawyer and discussed it with him.

Oooooh what a day.

Oh, what a tough day you had. I bet he wanted to buy your old house for cheap and then sell it for a normal price. Did you also contact the police so they know there's a crook like that and warn others not to be deceived by him?

We have old fashioned loudspeakers in the town. I think they are from WW2 or socialism but still work just fine. From time to time, criminals who want to deceive people with an elaborate plans to get their savings or property appear. Usually they concentrate on elderly people living alone, trying to manipulate them to let them in and/or give them money voluntarily. In such cases, the local police announces it by the loudspeakers so that everyone is careful.

Congratulations! What's the theme?
I've been taught by a romanian writer how to defeat writer's block a while ago. I can teach it to you if you wish.

Well, without going into too much detail, It's an early medieval story centered on a female warrior. Thrown into her destiny by a series of tragic events. Of course she finds unsuspecting love along the way. There's a little bit of 'Viking-y' feel to the whole thing.

I'm a sucker for the old times. :-D

Newly planted trees need watering even if it rains. I can, however, appreciate the image. Open America's gates and let the flood enter? Right! Yes, we need to learn from history, especially the ones who preach it the loudest.

Ask my Red Brother how that deal worked for him.

As for your work-in-progress, do you want a real, historically-documented magical warrior with god-like powers? She's not a Viking, but she's real, textbook perfect, every facial feature, including the standard-issue steel blues. As the centuries pass, she becomes Hardy Warrior, more effective in stealth.

A real warrior perspires on the page; her exhale sears your face; she hocks as she hollers; she snots as she snorts; and she cries as she watches the life drain from her slain opponent's eyes. She makes a man want to hide under a rock; still, he wants to reach out and caress her beauty

She's hard-nailed in image search, ©, but Al rules the internet. I can link-you up to a reference: magical warrior with god-like powers. Nothing more because I follow another path, keeping up with the Jones'. Yes! I know! But it's my wish to keep up with the Jones'. If you want to take a look, I ask that you keep me out of the loop.

When you get there, you might find someone. Tell them like it is. I'd skip the witch bit because it can become a turd in a punch bowl. It's not a lie! You're a fiction writer, want to create a magical woman warrior, found her image, linked her to where you're at, and see if anyone can walk you down a path. Who knows! You might find a gold mine; then, you don't have to make things up. You just write a 'book report,' on it with your own words.

Often I have vested interest in what I do, the keeping-up-with-the-Jones' deal. If it Harry-Potters into millions of dollars, maybe you could hook me up with a few bucks? After all, it would be a legitimate tax deduction.

If you pm, say so here, so I don't miss it.

I've been relaxing with you tube videos featuring Mudlarking on the Thames, London. I can now safely distinguish a Belarmine jug from an Onion Jar, or even a Torpedo bottle. This will help when i go antique hunting. Not to mention their finds of coins, shrapnel and live ammunition left over from WW1&2. And from watching over the shoulder of the 'Larkers, i might be able to spot a broken bit of Roman pottery and tell it from Mideivil, Edwardian or Victorian. I don't know when I.ll use this vast supply of trivia, & I gnash my teeth at all the holey stones they pass by...forget the pots.

My granddaddy, the ornery little cuss, and his mother, about 1904-1907. Her mother was full-blood Passamaquoddy. https://amphilsoc.org/library/exhibit/i ... samaquoddy

Want to know what great-great grandmother had cooking in the kettle? I bet'cha you'd never guess in a million years. It's not a google-hit because it's beyond a wildest imagination!
