    Wow, I am so happy their house was minimally damaged, but so sorry to hear they had any damage at all. This had to really unsettle them and I’m glad to hear only a minor injury was sustained. Thanks Jeff and Cindy for being their for them.

    We seek to order or lives and sometimes it even seems possible. Funny that we can get exercised over bad beats at the table as though they have some meaning. The real bad beats happen and there’s often no rebuys.

    Good luck for your family to manage a split pot on this hand!

    Technically, as your grandmother pointed out, a lot of the “everything everywhere” on their property wasn’t theirs. Their stuff was being picked up by someone else, God knows where! Grandma is using someone else’s trash bin, but with their own lid, and she had formed a small pile of buckets, a stepladder, etc. at the alley for people to claim. I’d guess no one’s out looking for their missing bucket, but these are good country folk so it’s very possible someone is.

    Every year tornado season rolls around, and every year I wonder the same thing – why does ANYONE live in tornado alley? Personally, I’d see that as a major reason to consider other locales. Perhaps they should rename it something MORE ominous?
