My little sister gave me this old picture.

That's us at my grandparents' house on Iroquois Court in Warrenville, Illinois, in 1980 or 1981; you can see our older sister's leg sticking in the picture at left (she's sitting at the games table).

There were a ping-pong table and model trains in the basement, and a river behind the house with beavers in it.

I noticed a certain smell by the bed

A pee-ish smell.

Eventually I realized that it was coming from this plant:

Look—it's flowering!

(The flowers are tiny.)

Now that I know the smell isn't pee I like it a lot better.

Leftover spaghetti?

I suggest:

Make an omelet!

Seriously. It's good.

This dog

Give him some homemade mozzarella and pasta.

Ding dong!

A witch got run over?
