Lee, did you read the profile in January of David Lesh, the guy who's widely hated -- but also, by some idiots, admired -- for constantly violating conservation laws and doing gross things in federal wilderness areas in Colorado? Had you heard of him before?

I'm trying to pare down my old magazine pile and came across that one.

I just read somewhere that the second dose is worse.

I've also heard it's harder on younger people, though.

Yes, I got mine at my usual clinic. So if you go to a pharmacy and it's time for the second shot do you have to desperately look around for a place to get it?

No, you go back to the same pharmacy. That's where they have the record of your first shot.

I was told to call a few days ahead of the 28th to make an appointment. I was surprised to get an e-mail yesterday that said the pharmacy would remind me a few days ahead of the date, probably to call for an appointment. I may try calling some time this week anyway to see what happens.

When I got #1, I asked about being given an appointment for the second dose. That's when I was told to call.

First of all...YAY! I'm doing a happy dance for you!!

A lot of young people want to live in the kind of house they grew up in. But fewer and fewer houses like that are available and most young people are being herded into condo towers and megalithic complexes. I know quite a few people in Denver who do group living. My son, who's 29, has never lived by himself until a year ago, when the little carriage house behind my rental house became available. He's loving the single life now. He's getting married next month, so that's coming to an end.

Thank you!

I told my ex-husband (also a reporter) and he insisted on doing a background search on the buyer. Turns out he's 25 and has a clean criminal record. There actually is someone with the same name who WAS convicted of pedophilia in Wisconsin, but he's 47. This guy is younger than I thought, better looking than he appeared with a mask on, and either owns or helps manage a startuppy business of some kind.

The other thing I thought of is that the four guys are musicians who play in a band together because his fake letter mentioned he likes to play music and imagines himself doing so in my basement. Luckily, the guy two houses down is also a musician, so he might actually like it.

Or possibly they're the owners of the new cafe about to open a few blocks from here. Or they're planning to fix up my house and flip it, which would be easy to do for skilled people because it's in good condition but could use some updated materials.

I'm looking for explanations because, although four 20-something guys living together is pretty normal, I can't imagine why they'd choose this unexciting neighborhood instead of a more happening place filled with other 20-something people.

It all seems potentially bad news to my next-door neighbors, a very nice retired couple, so I feel a bit guilty about that.

Congratulations to your son! How lucky you've been to have him as a neighbor.

??? ??? ???


Chuck is a wonderful name, a great name, all the Chucks I know (one) are among my favourite people.

But, and this is crucial, it's not my name  :laugh:


 :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:


Oops. Then I take everything back!

Just kidding -- everything else is still applicable, except my extreme misspelling of Sonja.

Thanks, Chuck! It is indeed a huge relief.

Congratulations.  :)

I'm sure everything will go fine.

Once you're out, if the meth lab blows up, it's not your problem.  ;D


Thank you! You're right. And until then, I'll know where I can get meth when I need some.
