Voldemort is basically a middle school girl: he has a locket, a diary, a tiara, a ring, and is completely obsessed with a teenage boy.

Just read that Tony Tanner died - we had him in a Kritzerland show - weird guy but fun. 

Tanner once sacked an actor friend of mine from a show for not putting out.

Yikes!  How rude! >:(

So before my sister and I left, my mom said that her friends and we could take anything we wanted from my dad's library.  Sonia is religious, so she took some of the crosses that my dad had collected.  My sister got a couple of things, and I took a yearbook that my Aunt Mary Lou had sent my dad.  It's of one of their brother's 1952 high school yearbook from Torrence, California:

I find it comforting to have something, even if it is small, from a loved one.

Another thing that I took was this jug that my dad probably got in the late 1960s or early 1970s.  It's obviously covered in a resin, but the wood knots are real wood:

I also took a framed copy of the sheet music to Tony Bennett's "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," but I didn't get a picture of that picture.

And the last thing I took (as with all of these, with my mom's permission) the silver icon that hung in their living room, just as you entered their house:

I'm not religious, but I love the silver, and my dad's church is the St. George Byzantine Catholic Church.

I am sure it helped your mother to be able to share gifts from your father knowing they will be cherished.

Exactly.  She doesn't want/need a lot of his things.  She will keep some things, just not a lot.

Yes.  He actually helped found the church way back when.  When he got back into going to church, he found out about this group of Byzantine Catholics and liked the way they did things.  At first, they were just renting rooms at various places, then they were able to raise money and actually build the church.  He was part of all of that.

Well, this is great:  Federal Judge To Postmaster General DeJoy: Fix What You Broke! :D

Still doesn't mean it will happen.  I don't have sound to know if there is a time frame with the order.

This is very interesting about your father.  When you say "his church" it really is.

Rachel didn't say a specific date, but I think the order was that DeJoy's changes had to be undone so that the election was not affected, so there's a time crunch, at least.

Yup...and he said at the time that they did NOT pick the name because of him.  His name is George, also!
