Is Gladys Wearing a Bathrobe?

Muammar Gaddafi, the former leader of Libya who has been in hiding since an uprising earlier this year, has been killed. Gaddafi became ruler of Libya after a successful military coup in 1969. Gaddafi was killed by wounds received while being captured in Sirte.

I had an odd dream last night, not about Gaddafi but about my grandparent's old house. My wife and I were living in a house built behind the old house and someone stole a couple of chairs that were outside. I'm starting to forget the actual point of the dream and I know it had one but what was weird was that there was a parking lot also behind the house, not a big parking lot but one with six or seven spaces. And now I can barely remember any of the dream. I never remember any of my dreams anymore and it's kind of annoying as when I have a decent dream, it's very good and intriguing, like my creepy "sheriff of a deserted town with a wild horse" dream.

How late is this sidewalk sale open? Usually sidewalk sales are during the day, 9 to 5 or something like that. Apparently in Ohio, or at least the crazy universe The Born Loser occupies, sidewalk sales take place in the evening.

"And how's your Wilberforce, Gladys? Still perpetually 9-years-old? I knew vacationing at Love Canal while you were pregnant wouldn't be good."
