His daughters and sons are constantly on social media. Constantly. So I don’t really think he has much room to talk. 

Furthermore, several of the daughters make nice money as influencers and from YouTube videos.

I made a joke out of something said. I was kind of crude, my apologies.

I had changed 'laptop' to 'lap' and decided it might not be funny.

Today facebook live was again done by Lawson and Tiffany who by the way seem to be atached by the hip. Aparently Erin and Chad couldnt do last week live due to poor internet connection. Lawson and Thiff are in Nashville at some friend house. They said they are working on a project they cant reveal yet (my guess is a song together).

Kelly is in hospital.  

This news courtesy of Carlin -- "in hospital for Mother's Day", as Carlin posts Instagram stories of Kelly in a hospital gown and bed as her required tribute (but if I were Kelly, I wouldn't be thrilled that my daughter was posting hospital pictures on social media.)

No information as to why, and Kelly looks pretty tired, with an IV pole next to her bed. There's family in there with her, so it probably isn't COVID.

I hope Kelly is ok.

Trace posted on his Instagram that she was in the hospital due to something on her esophagus that was causing her pain.  They were going to check for an infection and perforation

The first photo I saw with KJ in a hospital gown, I thought damn,  they couldn’t find a better photo. And then I saw another B kid post a photo with KJ in a gown, and another...Yes, I’m a bit slow- hope she’s ok!

I never noticed before how bow legged trace is. Perfect for riding horses I suppose lol. There was a book I loved in childhood that had a bow legged camp director. Everytime I see someone with bow legs I think of him. Surprisingly I think I have only ever seen a few in real life. 
random unimportant musings I decided to share. Feel free to skip :)

Bowleggedness can be somewhat genetic, but it's often a nutritional deficiency in infancy and childhood caused by a lack of vitamin D and calcium. Probably another casualty of the Bateses' bologna and Velveeta diet as kids. I've always wondered if the younger boys aren't as short as older ones due to their financial situation and access to protein improving as time went on.

Bowled legs is genetic or nutrional or just happen for no reason. I have bowded legs, one of my kids has, but any of my parents or grandparents have it, neither my inlaws. I was soaked in milk and meat all my childhood, while my kid has a more plant-based diet... It makes no difference in our legs. I wear shorts, though.

Bates ate cheap junk food and poor quantities, but I doubt they reached the point of malnourishement. They looked fine and active in the old videos and they all have the same weight/height than their parents had when they were young. Kelly and Gil are short, that's why children are short, too.

Was it “I Want to go Home” by Gordon Korman? I remember the main character, Rudy, commenting that he could see half the camp through the director’s legs. I had no idea what bow legs were as a kid and envisioned someone who was constantly doing a pilé.

OMG YES!!!!! I still read this book occasionally as an adult and laugh my arse off. I always wanted them to make a movie out of it and I always could see the scientist guy out of back to the future playing the director. 

Those poor camp councilors MIIIIIILLLLLLLEEEEERRRRRR!!!!

That middle boy (not sure of his name, Warden maybe?) is certainly giving Lawson a run for his money in the smarmy category

The Bates boys seem to fall into two categories: stocky and greasy (Zach, Nathan) or metrosexual and smarmy (Lawson, Warden). Both types are misogynistic douchebags.

Agreed. Only Isaiah and the little boys seem to have escaped this trend so far.

Just finished last week's episode. Nathan stated at the end that he wants to get engaged in the Spring in the Bahamas and married in the fall. Esther just posted a girls only picture surrounded by palm trees.

She's in Myrtle Beach with her family. Not the Bahamas.

 Funnily enough Zach told him the same thing when it was filmed a couple of months ago.

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      I'm so angry at the Bishops right now. Shit like this is why I left the Catholic church. They play politics so blatantly.  I hope this convinces more people to leave.

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.

      Dear FJ ladies of a certain age.  Did you know that joint pain can appear/increase with perimenopause and menopause?  No?  Me neither till my rheumatologist told me yesterday.  It's all down to the fall in (o)estrogen. 
      Looking online, it'll either settle down as your hormones adapt to their new levels OR you're stuck with it!  I don't fancy needing NSAIDs for the rest of my life.

      This evening a biker dude went out of his way to follow my car into a retail store's parking lot to lecture me on - get this - braking when the light turned yellow. I had been going the speed limit and it was by no means the shortest stop I've ever made. He condescendingly told me that next time I should hit the gas because people like him could "go splat" into my car. Really dude?!? If you're going to drive any vehicle, especially a motorcycle, actually learn to drive it and don't effing tailgate me when I'm going the speed limit. And if you did rear-end me, guess whose fault it would be? Certainly not the person who was obeying the law.
      Also, I hate living in a society where I have to say this, but I am soooo thankful my male coworker was with me. The biker stopped his bike right behind my car when I parked and wouldn't move it until his lecture was over. If I had been alone I would have been terrified.
