I gabbed with Ewbliette today, she filled me in on the details of her wedding to Brotherkurt in Las Vegas on the third of this month. I felt like a turd for not keeping in touch more. She also told me some shocking news: her sister’s house burned down over the holidays! Fortunately no one was injured, but her brother-in-law had some mild smoke inhalation from rescuing the dog. I simply cannot imagine anything so terrible happening to someone I know. Apparently the fire started from fireworks igniting the front porch. Both Ewbliette and I made plans to buy smoke alarms. Brrr!
