westford

be right over mixi
1:39 am
Douglas

There seems to be some disagreement on gruntled. Cecil Adams sez "Gruntle" is an old dialect word meaning "to grumble." So "disgruntled" means you're really grumbling.
1:39 am
westford

his name was Harold
1:39 am

I still have several inches of that white stuff on my walk. Thanks Westford.

OTOH, Merriam Webster defines gruntle as : to put in a good humor <were gruntled with a good meal and good conversation — W. P. Webb>

Normally, Cecil Adams is an unimpeachable source on these kind of things, but I'm going to have to go with Merriam-Webster

1:44 am
gremlinn

turbing isn't good for you anyway
1:45 am
rururocks

then there should be a tur-ban?
1:45 am
jillibus

but my Oxford says "to grumble, murmur, complain."
1:45 am
gremlinn

tur-ban banter?
1:45 am
rururocks

murmur? is like gruntling?
1:46 am
Douglas

That's the same meaning Cecil Adams referenced

They do, we don't always pick up on it.
2:07 am
dart001

we almost think if we had to do it over again... maybe we wouldn't have done the medicine route....think that caused her not to eat....she would have had a better life for longer without I think
2:08 am
jillibus

yes, and we don't want them to :(
2:08 am

it would probably have affected her heart and she would have gone faster

3:48 am
lynxxx

3:48 am
gortmold

i also have uncommonly nice friends who are already making me stashes of dinners in preparation
3:48 am
rubyfoo

and no cooking! yay for no cooking!
3:48 am
gortmold

i have a 4yo and a 7yo; they also do not know the meaning of a peaceful life
3:49 am
rubyfoo

you've heard of puppy uppers and doggie downers.....
3:49 am
gortmold

i haven't - are they some kind of canine sedative that you can give to kids?
3:49 am
rubyfoo

no sugar for them for the duration....plenty of warm milk and puddings to make them sleepy
3:50 am
lynxxx

I am sure the 7yo can be cajoled into being a good 4yo lookerafterer
3:50 am
gortmold

lol, right on ruby, you should right raising kiddies manuals
3:50 am
gortmold

write
3:50 am
rubyfoo

I was being facetious, but I had a friend who was prescribed paregoric for her babies (she had 2 under 2) and she used to take it so she didn't care! lol
3:51 am
rubyfoo

of course she won the lifetime mother-of-the-year award!
3:52 am
gortmold

shame; someone should turn that you tube video into reality - Kid-be-stoned with special prodding stick to test for vitals
3:52 am
rubyfoo

I nursed my son for 8 months and, in those days, nobody said not to, so I used to drink a pint of Guinness (to make milk) and he slept through the night at one week!!
3:53 am
gortmold

LOL, atta-girl ruby, you did yourself, your son and the universe a favour!
3:53 am
rubyfoo

he grew up all right even barely drinks, so I guess it didn't hurt him
3:54 am
gortmold

mmm...guinness... it's like mother's milk to me
3:55 am
rubyfoo

me, too, still.....
3:55 am
gortmold

with the goodness of 3 kinds of alcohol and vitamin black, you can't go wrong
3:56 am
rubyfoo

for sure
3:57 am
gortmold

3:57 am
rubyfoo

3:57 am
rubyfoo

boring ruby
3:58 am
gortmold

3:58 am
lynxxx

3:58 am
rubyfoo

lol
3:58 am
rubyfoo

3:58 am
gortmold

3:58 am

3:59 am
lynxxx

watching the Steven Fry show on his, and others, bipolar etc
4:00 am
gortmold

oh yes, that's re?ally interesting, isn't it
4:00 am
gortmold

imagine i put that ? at the end of the thought
4:00 am
rubyfoo

in australia, are they big fans of psychotropic drugs, like here?
4:00 am
lynxxx

It is, a good insight
4:01 am
loredana

hi there Babblers
4:01 am
rubyfoo

my md even writes scrips for them for my dog!
4:01 am
gortmold

hey lore
4:01 am
lynxxx

I believe so Ruby
4:01 am
rubyfoo

hello lore
4:01 am
lynxxx

Lore!
4:01 am
gortmold

i think we just prescribe guinness here ruby
4:01 am
loredana

got some leave so might see me sometimes
4:01 am
rubyfoo

I give my autistic dog prozac and it helps him a lot
4:02 am
loredana

Hi there Lynxxx ans Stewart
4:02 am
rubyfoo

that might work for him, too
4:02 am
gortmold

LOL, you have an autistic dog?!
4:02 am
gortmold

how can you tell?
4:02 am
lynxxx

That WILL be nice. How have you been keeping Lore?
4:03 am
loredana

need to sleep for a week which I have nearly done and do some chilling contemplating new horizons lynxxx
4:03 am
rubyfoo

since we got him, at 4 months, he was exceedingly timid, wouldn't make eye contact, was afraid of his bowl, and didn't want to be touched. I diagnosed him and read a book on autism by Temple Grandin, and she suggest Prozac for people. It really helps him
4:04 am
gortmold

good golly
4:04 am
loredana

dives into grid its been so long hope i remember how to babble lol
4:04 am
lynxxx

Lore -oh?! I was just going to say you must have been doing that job for at least a year now. Moving out of that profession?
4:04 am
rubyfoo

now he makes soulful eye contact, lets me pet him, is a nice part of the household but, unfortunately, is still afraid of his bowl and I have to hand-feed him. dopey me!
4:04 am
gortmold

so you love him unconditionally?
4:05 am
rubyfoo

yes, and since we have two chows (ruby is the one in my icon), the female helps care for him, opens doors for him etc.
4:05 am
rubyfoo

his is big and black, Max
4:06 am
rubyfoo

I don't know why, but I'm partial to grids with c's in them
4:07 am
gortmold

fair enough - partial to pyschotic pooches and grids with cs; there's no accounting for taste, said the old lady as she kissed the donkey
4:08 am
rubyfoo

sounds like the punchline for a great joke!
4:08 am
rubyfoo

there was really no choice with Max; if we had sent him back to the Canadian breeder, she would have put him down.
4:08 am
rubyfoo

and he is endlessly gentle and sweet
4:10 am
gortmold

i once had a dopey dalmation who tried to eat a hedgehog
4:11 am
rubyfoo

picking stickers out for a week?
4:11 am
gortmold

and even tho the spines were poking thru his cheeks painfully, Punch the Daft Pooch refused to relinquish his spikey meal
4:12 am
gortmold

he went on to have a dramatic but ignoble future eating the neighbour's pedigree cats
4:12 am
rubyfoo

I like dopey dogs, wouldn't want to have one who was too smart and tried to run the house
4:13 am
rubyfoo

sounds like a great dog!
4:13 am
gortmold

and finally coming to an untimely but wryly humorous death plunging over a cliff after a seabird
4:13 am
rubyfoo

oh my!
4:13 am
gortmold

he was an awesome idiot of a dog who lived (and died) for the chase
4:14 am
lynxxx

I shouldn't laugh - idiot dog! sounds like Oscar, an equally silly lab of a Babbler in the UK
4:14 am
gortmold

he loved to nibble on fluffly little kittens and got his jollies terrorising squirrels
4:14 am
rubyfoo

I used to have a cat who tried to hunt birds from behind the glass doors and would repeatedly plan to leap and then crash into the glass. Did I say repeatedly? lol
4:14 am
gortmold

he tested the boundaries of unconditional love (but he didn't find them...aww)
4:15 am
gortmold

Lol ruby
4:15 am
rubyfoo

imagine life without cats and dogs....bleak indeed!
4:16 am
gortmold

yes you should laugh lynx, i do, otherwise how can i live with being in the only family whose dog committed suicide?
4:16 am
oodleberry

salut ruby
4:16 am
oodleberry

hi gort
4:17 am

4:20 am
rubyfoo

4:21 am
gortmold

i could never make up anything as daft as Punch the Pooch
4:21 am
lynxxx

4:21 am
gortmold

ook, thanks lyn, is the fa6 a normal word?
4:22 am
lynxxx

4:22 am
lynxxx

fa6 its the board under gutters I think
4:22 am
rubyfoo

ty lynxx, got the 6 but can't imagine the plural - no latin here - and an 8??
4:23 am
gortmold

mmm...something like eaves that starts with fa...mmm
4:23 am
lynxxx

latin plurals, usually a , sometimes e or i
4:23 am
lynxxx

fa**** board
4:24 am
lynxxx

the 8 ends with past tense of consumed

4:35 am
lynxxx

were you ladies here when i announced that our soup kitchen donations from Whole Foods are really going upscale?
6:30 am
Trifioso

Yes, I think milk 2 sugars is the custom in boston, as well.
6:30 am
Trifioso

no, but wow, une!
6:30 am
Uneaixoise

Friday I picked up the usual bags of bread . . . plus swiss chard and raspberries!!!
6:30 am
Anniebrook

No, Une I was not. That is great
6:31 am
Trifioso

pinkies out at the soup kitchen!!!
6:31 am
Uneaixoise

it definitely pays to befriend Tyrone in produce :-)
6:31 am
Anniebrook

Whole Foods has the greatest dinner rolls.
6:31 am
Uneaixoise

indeed, trif!
6:31 am
Uneaixoise

Whole Foods has great bread, period -- esp. when it's free!!
6:31 am
Trifioso

btw, annie, I am learning to make bagels. they will never compete with NYC bagels, but it is fun. I hear it is the water in NYC that makes the bagels so amazing
6:32 am
Uneaixoise

NYC water is delicious
6:32 am
Trifioso

what a wonderful blessing it must be to offer fresh fruits and the chard to the folks at the soup kitchen.
6:32 am
Uneaixoise

if i lived there I would never buy bottled water
6:32 am
Anniebrook

"They" say it is the water.
6:32 am
Uneaixoise

it is, trif, it is!!
6:33 am
Uneaixoise

Tyrone had a huge box of grapes for me but his supervisor came by and made snarky comments about "you're not supposed to give it away if we could still sell it"
6:33 am
Anniebrook

Fresh fruit in a soup kitchen is a blesssing, I agree. God bless Whole Foods.
6:33 am
Uneaixoise

but we'll get around that, I'm sure!
6:34 am
Trifioso

our youth group at church did an amazing weekend food experience thing, and one of the things they did was to have to go shopping with the same amount of money that a family on public assistance receives. ALL the kids noticed that fresh anything was just not in that budget. prepared, dried, easy fix....
6:34 am
Uneaixoise

Annie, what the produce guys have told me is basically "first come first served' -- so Friday I was there at 7:00am!!
6:35 am
Uneaixoise

that's so true, trif -- and really sade
6:35 am
Uneaixoise

*or sad!
6:35 am
Anniebrook

Une, You are wonderful. Everything you do is with a full heart.
6:36 am
Uneaixoise

far from it, Annie -- but it's very fulfilling to see this Whole Foods relationship developing
6:36 am
Uneaixoise

and it all started when one of my daughter's friends struck up a conversation with the lady in charge of their bakery
6:36 am
Uneaixoise

ya never know
6:36 am
Anniebrook

Une, Make Tyrone your bestest friend..he will be blessed too.
6:37 am
Trifioso

une, there was a great interview on NPR this weekend about people like Tyrone and the bakery lady, who are sort of a new underground movement helping others in an outside the box fashion.
6:37 am
Anniebrook

Une, do you know what they do with the soups that are left? Do they donate the soups?
6:38 am
Uneaixoise

don't know about their execs, but my experience is that the people "on the floor" in the various depts are really HAPPY to help feed the hungry!
6:38 am
Trifioso

hold on, let me see if I can find a link for you...brb
6:38 am
Uneaixoise

oohhh, tx, Trif, I'll look that up
6:38 am

annie, don't know re prepared foods but I've had my eye on the "hot bars" from Day One . . . we shall see!
6:39 am
Uneaixoise

and David the egg guy gave me 3 dozen eggs -- plan on hitting him up for more! LOL
6:39 am
Uneaixoise

hardboiled eggs are VERY popular
6:40 am
Anniebrook

and lots of protein..do the same people frequent the soup kitchen every day?
6:41 am
Anniebrook

In this weather a hot meal can save a life.
6:41 am
Uneaixoise

mostly yes, but of course it's seasonal too -- some difference in the summer when lots of guys come here for summer construction work
6:43 am
Uneaixoise

Annie, our program director now has such a personal connection to a lot of these guys, it's pretty funny when she's riding downtown with friends to attend shows at the performing arts center -- and there are often homeless guys waving and smiling at the street corners! LOL
6:43 am
Trifioso

une, I can't find it to save my life, but I am still looking...
6:44 am
Anniebrook

It must be gratifying to her to be acknowledged by people you have helped.
6:46 am
Uneaixoise

it is, Annie -- and she's just such a cool person . . .
6:46 am
Uneaixoise

very down to earth -

why would you look bad because you are not slim? Wtg on the swimming and be proud of yourself.

we've had snow off and on and it's really beautiful, but the lake at 54 degrees never freezes (maybe once in 1912!) but I can't skate anyway. Used to ski, though

walking in subzero temps can put a giddyup in your pace ... nature can get my attention.
7:58 am

red, you have been through a lot, of course your body and condition reflect that. Perhaps if you can start with that one minute and build up very slowly, you will be running 15 miles before you know it.
7:58 am

by the end I could run for an hour and got over being asthmatic and actually gained some weight putting on muscle!

my husband feeds the birds 3X/day and we have 100's in residence all winter. And the feeder is in front of the kitchen window so I can do "passive birdwatching"
8:16 am
rubyfoo

yes, it's the light thing. I try to read under bright light for an hour or two in the afternoon every day
8:16 am
sprite

I am less depressed now that I walk Terra every day.
8:17 am
Sally-catlover

Do you have one of those special daylight bulbs?
8:17 am
rubyfoo

no, just a regular one, but even that helps. I wonder if they have those here
8:17 am
rubyfoo

it's a good idea
8:17 am
sprite

not yet, but I want to get one. I could use it while reading.
8:17 am
rubyfoo

better than anti-depressants.....
8:18 am
Sally-catlover

I believe they work well. Sprite, how do you manage walking Terra when you have (I think) mobility problems?
8:18 am
rubyfoo

sprite: how many languages do you have?
8:18 am
hego

My house faces south and is filled with sunlight all day. I love it.
8:18 am
Sally-catlover

Poor Sprite, so many questions!
8:19 am
sprite

Very slowly and carefully, Sally. I have a walking stick and I built up the walking literally from less than one minute to a reasonable walk. And then I sit on a bench and let Terra play with other dogs.
8:20 am
sprite

not so many. English is ok, German and French not great but workable, a bit of japanese.
8:20 am
rubyfoo

have to go now, but this has been very enjoyable. Thank you all for brightening my day, even without a "daylight light".
8:21 am
sprite

bye rubyfoo
8:21 am
rubyfoo

when you read for pleasure, it's in which language?
8:21 am
Sally-catlover

I'm sure Terra gives you a good reason to go out. I understand the slowly and carefully because I had a major back problem (got medical retirement) and could hardly walk for about 6 months, have built things up as you say.
8:21 am
sprite

english. I love reading english.
8:21 am
Sally-catlover

Bye rubyfoo.
8:21 am
hego

bye Ruby, dear.
8:22 am
rubyfoo

bye all, will be back after dinner to glean a little more maybe, up to 94 which is amazing for me lol
8:23 am
sprite

I have a full invalidity benefit, for at least another year and a half again. And my new meds are accomplishing what none has for the last 14 years: they are lessening the pain in my pelvic bone.
8:23 am
sprite

fireflies, btw - anything I can help with before I go?
8:24 am
hego

that's really good Sprite
8:24 am

YAYYY!!! Sprite!
8:24 am

I'll muddle along, ty Sprite.
8:24 am
Sally-catlover

Yay for Sprite!
8:25 am
sprite

yes, it is a really good thing. Pain in hips and back is worsening without the oxycodone, but I will not take both. Will find another way to handle the pain that is not nerve-related.
8:26 am
hego

what are you taking?
8:26 am
Marmar

Hi all.
8:26 am

hi Marmar, likewise! How've you been?
8:27 am
Marmar

I just wanted to wish you alles gute for the new year. We're well, renovations still not finished but we can see light at the end of the tunnel now!
8:28 am

and I promise you, Marmar, it won't be another train! *hug*
8:28 am

Hope not! wanted to share with you a good "find"
8:29 am

Alles gute auch for Dich und deine Familie
8:29 am
sprite

lol... fur, not for, ofcourse
8:29 am
sprite

what did you find?
8:29 am
Marmar

my doctor thinks I have Fibromyalgia, joint and muscle pain all over. I bought those MBT shoes and I notice an improvement.
8:30 am
sprite

darn, that is a rotten thing to have, Fibromyalgia. But wonderful those shoes make a difference. Let me google them, I haven't heard of them I think.
8:31 am
Marmar

You might want to research it a little on the web. They take getting used to, radically different than any other shoe you've worn but wonderful for muscles! You might benefit from them. Actually, I think everyone could benefit from them!
8:31 am
sprite

ah, I see! Will look into this for sure, thanks for sharing your 'find'!
8:32 am
Marmar

I have to get going. Love to all you babblers! Blessings too!
8:32 am

I see some dutch sellers are actually offering a lesson to get used to how to walk on them
8:32 am

I have those shoes.
8:33 am
hego

Mine came with a cd
8:33 am
Marmar

(I've watched the tutorials multiple times and keep practicing) My CD was missing from the box hego!
8:33 am

what do you think of them, hego?
8:33 am
sprite

bye Marmar, big *hug* to you!
8:33 am
Marmar

Oh! I'm curious too hego.
8:33 am
hego

I don't quite know what to think
8:34 am
hego

They're comfy
8:34 am
hego

and do take some getting used to.
8:34 am
hego

I also have a lot of back and hip pain.
8:35 am
hego

I think they help a bit.
8:36 am
Marmar

I have more defined muscle tone in my legs after 4 weeks, I thought that was impossible at this point!
8:36 am
hego

are you walking with them?
8:36 am
Marmar

and walking up stairs is bearable now, some days I would make it to the top and then go cry, it hurt so much.
8:37 am
sprite

I will ask my physical therapist about them. Must be off now, but thanks a lot for this idea. Bye all, be well.
8:37 am
hego

awww that's awful
8:37 am
hego

Bye Sprite.
8:37 am
Marmar

I put them on in the morning, walk the dog, then leave them on while I do my daily stuff around the house and in the afternoon with the kiddos.
8:37 am

It doesn't make such a huge impression here ('cept of you are a tennis fan). The Grand Prix has more impact - probably because of the noise - and because I am close to the area, the road closures

5:07 pm
oodleberry

some of these stories are amazing
5:07 pm

more houses than we need! when thye announced the army was coming, the builders went crazy building - we probably have 500 new housing units for sale
5:08 pm

the full army unit is not due til next year
5:08 pm

I never expected to find someone who really knew South Carolino on this chat. It is a small state and a world of its own.

fa6 when putting siding on your house ..this is under the edges of the roof then latin
5:09 pm

Oh my, we already have the units in place here so no more building is needed. They surely have improved the houses on both bases recently.

5:10 pm
Joanne123

very welcome
5:11 pm
stidgmere

No, I am in the NW of the US quite near the site of the Olympics. I don't wonder why the government is in debt. The right way, the wrong way, the Army way. Can you imagine all of the health care following the same guide lines?

5:18 pm

as far as I know montral doesn't have one... so I was told but I guess qubeckers want to think they have the only one... although that's where it started... it is in its 54th year
5:21 pm
stidgmere

We want to go to Quebec in the spring. It looks lovely and we enjoy trying out our French on unsuspecting native speakers.
5:23 pm
oodleberry

hee hee well don't go to montreal because most likely they will surprise you in speaking english back to you... if you come to quebec city then you will meet more people who don't speak english
5:24 pm
oodleberry

yes that's why I have all the pics of the ice sculptures and I said it in my story in my profile
5:25 pm

We'll come to Quebec. I shall have to look up your profile. Mine is not so intresting because i don't know how to get the pictures small enough to be accepted or something.

6:06 pm
pippingeek

my friend is in town and i just left her parents' house because they were having dinner (i declined their polite offer to share some with me) only to find that there is no food in this house for me, my parents have already eaten without me
6:07 pm
pippingeek

i love feeling like an unwelcome guest here
6:07 pm
redturtlehead

Pippin, this can be resolved with a call for pizza.
6:07 pm
jmcnrick

way ahead of you red
6:07 pm
jmcnrick

i just ordered pizza online before i came here
6:08 pm
pippingeek

no, i don't really do that, but i guess i'm going out for some crappy fast food
6:08 pm
redturtlehead

Ahhh jmc, you care to share with Pipping?
6:08 pm
jmcnrick

the pizza will be here in about 20 minutes pip!
6:08 pm
72 Temple Owl

no eggs in the house? that is my dinner tonight
6:09 pm
jmcnrick

hi all btw
6:09 pm
pippingeek

can't really use the kitchen because it's an open floorplan house and my dad will be sitting there watching me and he'll find it necesary to tell me all the ways i'm doing things wrong
6:09 pm
pippingeek

don't quite have the energy for that tonight
6:09 pm
72 Temple Owl

oh hell there is a z word
6:10 pm
pippingeek

TO, it is a za 4/12, if that helps
6:10 pm
bojazz

the Z is easier than the fa8
6:10 pm
72 Temple Owl

ty, it did
6:10 pm
pippingeek

with that info totally easy to monkey
6:11 pm
redturtlehead

I stayed with my parents for two months between missions once, it wasn't easy.
6:11 pm
jmcnrick

ty pip
6:12 pm
pippingeek

it's kind of like living alone in a strangers' house, except there's no rent and the strangers are extra judgmental
6:12 pm
jmcnrick

my poor son has to stay with me in between semesters but we actually do okay together
6:12 pm
72 Temple Owl

if bad why stay?
6:13 pm
redturtlehead

I found it only mildly annoying at times. My parents are really ok,
6:13 pm
pippingeek

i shouldn't complain, i am lucky to stay somewhere for free, but my folks and i don't get on terribly well and i'm only here still cause i dont have the funds to move yet
6:13 pm
redturtlehead

THe issue my Dad had was he wanted me to work, and I am not liscensed to work in that state at all... sooo.
6:13 pm
jmcnrick

he tells me his friends all say "how can you stand to live with your mom" and he says "we do fine" and then they ask "don't you miss having a place of your own" and he says "yes"
6:13 pm
pippingeek

i mean i could move, but i'm trying to go to nyc and not fall on my face, so saving is key
6:14 pm
redturtlehead

We did have some fun, and I really do feel closer to them after that extended vacation...
6:14 pm
pippingeek

but my folks apparently assume i'm going there to enjoy yet another failure, so that's a fun way to prepare for a move
6:14 pm
72 Temple Owl

they want you to succeed.
6:14 pm
pippingeek

i was hoping it might be good for us, and to some extent it's been good for me and mom, but dad is totally a lost cause
6:15 pm
jmcnrick

too bad pip
6:15 pm
pippingeek

no, to, i think they only want me to succeed on their terms, and so succeeding on my terms is sort of classed a failue anyway
6:16 pm
redturtlehead

Ahh there is the difference, since I had just come out of a war zone, my parents pretty much left me alone, and talked it up when we went anywhere (Small town).
6:16 pm
jmcnrick

i understand that pip, my in laws never understood why my husband wanted to be a criminal trial lawyer
6:16 pm
jmcnrick

they kept trying to get him to do something useful like teach!
6:17 pm
redturtlehead

funny jmc, isn't criminal law on occasion quite profitable? or am I wrong?
6:17 pm
72 Temple Owl

they prob can only see one way for you. soem folks are very convention and single minded. my paresnt agreed to college but thought i would be a teacher until married. that's what educated women did then.
6:17 pm
jmcnrick

occasionally but he wasn't into mob or white collar
6:17 pm
jmcnrick

he just wanted to help the average shlub
6:17 pm
redturtlehead

I watch too many of those Crime dramas jmc.
6:18 pm
pippingeek

so it was hard spending time with my friend's parents today, because they're well, nice, and supportive, and that kind of thing. most of the time i just ignore what i don't get at home, but some days it's hard
6:18 pm
jmcnrick

lol TO when I went to law school my great aunt asked if I shouldn't get a teachers certificate as a back up plan
6:18 pm
72 Temple Owl

you have to find it in yourself pip
6:19 pm
redturtlehead

Pippin, unfortunately your parents, are only people. they aren't programmed to be some sort of ideal people, and most make mistakes and regret more than they admit.
6:19 pm
jmcnrick

so do you have a goal besides NYC?
6:19 pm
pippingeek

and i don't like to complain because i get a lot of things other people don't have, but some days i just can't keep my mouth shut
6:19 pm
jmcnrick

are you still exploring the options?
6:20 pm
pippingeek

i know what i want to do when i'm there, i have a plan, i have a timeline, but it's hard to get my head straight till i get out of here and get my bearings there
6:21 pm
jmcnrick

do you know where you will be looking to live?
6:21 pm
pippingeek

brooklyn, most likely park slope or sunset park

6:24 pm
pippingeek
