MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

I try to be a good tenant. And I help the landlady hire people for home repairs, among other things. But two of my umbrellas disappeared this week. And I'm mildly miffed.

Sunday PM update: Nice big blue umbrella and smaller one are both back!

Peak TV means you can never watch everything – there's always too much.

But I was watching back when there were three networks, and I didn't even know that.

Health updates about myself and my sons.

What else could you want in the middle of summer?

There were a full three pages of news about New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority today. So much information, in fact, that I could only talk about the first two pages.

My younger son might have made a friend at the swim club this week.

Maybe.

My mother has had the same telephone number for 41 years.

Post-podcast epilogue: The blocked number I referenced is ON MY BLOCKED LIST!!!

I worked the polls for the June 25 special election for Queens DA (and a few judgeships).

Three separate files woven together into a series of semi-coherent thoughts about our democratic process in action.

My older son graduated from high school last week.

Due to terminology and the Department of Education, I have to say he is "transitioning," not graduating.

But the future looks bright, after some up and down spots.

One of my older son's classmates was lost for 13 hours last week.

Not a good experience.

For anyone.

But especially not someone with special needs.

My son's little league team won its first playoff game last weekend.

The secret was they were not TOLD it was a playoff game.

That helped keep the pressure off them, and it was an impressive experience from a group of 8-9 year olds.

Update: They lost in the second round on Saturday, so no finals.
