Somehow found myself two feet from Yoko Ono at the NYC Women's March. !! Her message: "Peace is power!"

Not gonna lie - I fangirled hard. Honestly got the chills. I started yelling "We love you Yoko! We love you!" and couldn't stop!

Ha. I know. It is kind of bittersweet. On the one hand, like I said above. On the other hand, it wasn't a large amount of cash but one last belated Christmas gift from Grandpa.

I called my parents and told them I hope they went through everything when they were clearing out his house. They were like, you know what, we got through what we could get through and for whatever we didn't just say a prayer for Grandpa and anyone else who's going through that.

My poor grandpa.

He passed away years ago from dementia/Alzheimer's. Somehow I ended up with his Trivial Pursuit game. I was putting it away today after playing it this week and found a bank envelope with cash in it shoved between two pieces of cardboard in the packaging. Towards the end when it was getting bad he would get confused and paranoid. My mom/uncle were managing his finances and would give him cash for if he needed stuff from the store or something. He would constantly hide it and forget where he put it and then go days without things before he would admit he had lost it. I guess this was from that. Makes me sad to remember how poorly he was doing at the end.

Agreed. And so many on the far left who the Dems had trouble capturing in '16 viewed him as too centrist. Not sure this would help win over any new bases and, as you said, might help stir up the far right.

As big of an Obama person as I am, I'm... not so sure about this move.

They're not allowed here, either. There's even a sign on the door that says it but people just ignore it and no one says anything.

I'll allow that some of them might be service dogs but I go to the grocery store often since it's right across the street - I never do a huge stock up I just swing through like four times a week - and every time I've been in the past couple weeks there's been someone in there with a dog!

An emerging trend I've been noticing (at least at the Whole Foods across the street): dogs in grocery stores.

As a dog owner, that gets a big NOPE from me.
