George Carlin had a much darker and more cynical take on pet ownership IOTL.George Carlin is explaining why an illness that the family dog goes through is so significant he said, “Home is where the dog is.”
Yes, but this is a direct quote from something he said in OTL. That home was series of dogs throughout your life.George Carlin had a much darker and more cynical take on pet ownership IOTL.
And both statements are true.Yes, but this is a direct quote from something he said in OTL. That home was series of dogs throughout your life.
Of course, he also said "Handle every situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away."
I suspect that Bas is going to be perfectly happy to take out his frustrations on anyone stupid enough to annoy him.It was common knowledge that no one messed with Bas unless they were asking to land in a world of hurt. His little sister had done so in the most ruthless manner possible, and he couldn’t retaliate against her in the manner he would have with almost anyone else. At the same time, he was perfectly happy to take out his frustrations on anyone stupid enough to speak ill of Gretchen.
Teach them to learn the why and they also learn what to avoid if, or when, they find themselves in a similar situation.The talk had however turned to Frau Pavlichenko. She taught history, but the things they studied were different from years past. There were details that their textbooks overlooked or were not as cut and dry as they had been taught. Rote learning had always been the order of the day, learning dry facts and being able to repeat them on examination, what happened on what date. She wanted them to learn the “why” as well.
Your Aunt Kat, Niko. And Peter Holz.It shouldn’t have come as a surprise that there were a lot of rumors flying around about their new History Teacher. That she had been a Sniper in the Red Army and as a prisoner of war had been a head case who had landed in the University Clinic in Jena, which where many of the worst cases of Traumatic Stress got sent, before joining the Pioneer Corps.
Niko personally thought that most of those rumors were absurd.
For starters, during the Soviet War Snipers were seldom captured. Something that was doubly true if they were women. Niko had heard stories about how front-line troops would just tear them to pieces and their Officers would look the other way. As for her getting sent to Jena, if she was that bad off, how had she been allowed to join the Pioneers and teach in Wahlstatt?
Michael is still wondering exactly why Birdie decided that he was the one. I mean, he very carefully told her that she didn't have to marry him, despite what their families might want.Not that the tabloid press wouldn’t have reason to cover Michael and Birdie in the near future. Kiki had noticed it while they had been in Munich, as Doctor and a woman she had more experience in certain matters than she would have liked. When they had finally gotten a chance to talk, Birdie had told Kiki the truth, but she had also said that she hadn’t known how to tell Michael and had not screwed up the courage yet.
While Nancy & her staff are going to get yelled at, big time, I hope Kiki remembers to save some for her father & possibly her eldest brother. One, or both, gave the all clear on those pics being used. Unless the photographer went rogue and just sold them, thinking (?) that it is better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission.Flipping to another page, Kiki cursed aloud. Earning a stern look from the woman sitting across the aisle from her. It was a recent picture of Nina playing with wooden blocks aboard the Epione, on the floor of the saloon the previous summer. Rauchbier was curled up less than a meter away, ostensibly sleeping, but his ears were perked up as he listened to everyone nearby. He had become extremely protective of Nina, needing little in the way of encouragement by Kiki and it was something that she liked to see.
As adorable as the picture was. It was part of a batch that was never intended for public consumption but for Kiki’s father. When Kiki got back to Berlin, she would need to have a few strong words with the Office of Royal Protocol over this this matter.
It certainly used to be a thing. I can remember it being a thing in the UK as recently as the mid 80's. Once the internet became a thing they went on local small ad sites.Seriously?
THats a thing?
