Marriage 301, Lecture 250: Viva la revolucion and don't forget the milk


Me: You're going to that [political] thing in Steven's Point?

SH: Yes.

Me: You can stop at the Fleet Farm there and get some kitty litter.

SH: No! I'll be busy!

Me: It's right there on the highway. We pass it every time we go up north.

SH: We don't need any kitty litter. We still have a bunch from when Bonnie and Gary brought us some. [Our friends who have a lake house - Gary calls it a "cottage" - about an hour north of here brought us several bags of kitty litter when they came to our house for dinner at Christmas. We had intended to pay them for it - they did us the favor of stopping at the Fleet Farm near the lake to get it for us - but they refused our money, telling us the kitty litter was a hostess gift. Probably the best hostess gift I have ever received, although the Bodacious Red-headed Doc's Imitrex samples are also very high on the list.]

Me: We always need kitty litter.

Great facade on that building.

TG, there are a lot of cool buildings on Brady. It's so sad to drive down Wisconsin near the Pabst Museum and see the hideous structures that replaced what were probably grand old houses.

I am still laughing over your comment on David Lebovitz' train food posting.

Milwaukee's Socialists in the 1920s (the actual Socialist Party has won plenty of elections in Milwaukee) encouraged that many of those houses along WI Ave, then named Grade Ave, be torn down for apartment buildings.
