20 years ago today

Sign in to follow this  


I hate the holiday season, just hate it. I used to love it, but 20 years ago today the police came to our door to make the worst notification they are tasked with. Our daughter was just 21.

We do Christmas, we have had little kids for the past 17 years, so we have to do Christmas, but I just wish I could go to bed Thanksgiving night and wake up mid January.

I remember reading about your daughter in one of the JRod threads, I believe. Such awful, awful news to hear, and just before Christmas too. So sorry for your loss.

I remember too, and my heart broke for you when I read that. I hope this isn't too painful to share with you, but we were on a road trip last weekend and I looked back and saw my daughter slouched across the back seat. I told her to sit up because her seatbelt wouldn't work properly that way. A whole disagreement between her, my husband and I ensued but I remembered your story and insist that she (and I) sit properly in the car from now on. I am so sorry for your loss, but you have shared with us a valuable lesson. I hope you had a nice holiday in spite of everything.

Blackberry, so much love being sent to you as well on this day.  I have never forgotten after you shared and like Puma reminded my son to sit up properly in the car on the way home from our outing yesterday.

      I know I frequently hop on here to complain about their grammar, but can’t they sometimes get something right? Just sometimes... I’m not asking for too much, am I?


      From uneducated people who are limited in what they read...you are asking too much.

      * In 12 or 13 states, public urination can be charged as indecent exposure or public lewdness. Public urination is illegal in all 50 states but most write a ticket with a fine or it's a misdemeanor. Indecent exposure and public lewdness will both mean registering as a sex offender. I don't know how common it is, but my friend in college got caught twice in a month in her freshman year peeing behind plants in garden beds while extremely intoxicated, and on her second time she got charged with public lewdness even though you could not see her from the path going by at all (she was at least 10-15 feet off the path and behind tall shrubbery) and the cop had to squeeze past the plants to even see why she was back there. She wanted to be a nurse so had to hire a lawyer to try and get her off the charges. She ended up having to do a good amount of community service and had to attend AA (she wasn't an alcoholic, just an 18 year old who didn't know her drinking limits yet) and classes on reducing her alcohol use, and then the charges were expunged.

      She is now a nurse and the whole experience very much turned her off drinking to excess.


      Off topic, but I'm completely fine with someone who did these things being excluded from certain professions. If you're not aware that actions have consequences by the time you go to college, you're not ready to go away to college or to start training towards these professions. The fact that she got caught and did it again soon after (both the drinking and the peeing in garden beds) shows this. At 18 she had to know that drinking was illegal. It is not ok to break the law if you do it 10-15 feet away from where you think someone can see you. And other people are not required to stay on paths to avoid seeing illegal things. And you have no idea if she was an alcoholic or not. But if she wanted it expunged, she needed to stop drinking. Being required to attend substance abuse counseling is a completely appropriate requirement when you're asking the court to give you a do over that you have in no way shown that you deserve or earned.

      Susannah Richardson went private on instagram and cancelled some of the last few post on FB, her boyfriend cancelled the FB profile.

      someone commented or told her something about her fiancee, i suppose.

      Anyway i hope she'll be alble to discern what is good from what is not and not being too naive.

      He didn't cancel his account, he was removed from Facebook once they became aware that he is a registered sex offender. I don't believe she deleted those posts, just changed their privacy. Maybe someone who is actually friends with her on Facebook can confirm. But even then, you can select which friends see your posts too. He is definitely still around, the youngest sister changed her profile photo to a pic of him yesterday.

      I have a friend that is allergic to one or more ingredients in the tetanus shot! I hope he never steps on a nail or gets a deep laceration. 

      How terrifying!
