"The palest ink is better than the sharpest memory." - Chinese proverb

Complete text of email to H fifteen minutes ago:

I have taken the liberty of finding every marker in this house (washable and non) and throwing them away. You will understand why when you view your two youngest children this evening.

Also, all that ancient dot matrix printer paper in the box under Seg's bed, the one your parents gave us because 'maybe we could use it'? In one of those paper recycling dumpsters first chance I get because I have no desire to EVER fold up thousands of feet of paper EVER AGAIN.

And, lastly, if that dog EVER TAKES A HALF OF A BAGEL RIGHT OUT OF MY HAND AGAIN, straight to the animal shelter with him.

PHOTOS, PLEASE!
Did Terzo wake up the other 2 by drawing on them?
Ah, did you feed the dog dear? My dear old Alsacian snatched a piece of pizza out of my very fingers, and then ran out the back door with the entire rest of the pizza as I was whipping on his haunches. As? I had forgotten to feed him. (I was 17, newly married and constantly hysterical.) Just an idea....

Our &*(*%*@# dog has been taking food off the table, out of childrens' hands, off the kitchen bench for years. I now LOATHE him.
