Out of the Blue

Having a fine time with our visiting friends. I planned on whipping up some omelets for breakfast this morning, but it turns out this was not a favored choice for most of the crew. So we shifted gears and I made waffles which worked out fine. This was against the odds, considering I screwed up the recipe by mistaking ounces for cups in adding the flour, which I thankfully caught before it was too late. This was also the first time in about ten years that we actually used the waffle iron, so we couldn't even be sure it would operate properly. But they came out properly, except, of course, for the first one, which is almost always a disaster. The twins went so far as to declare it the best breakfast ever, so I'm pretty high on myself right now.

@Cutter: didn't read the article, didja. I'm sure the money is clean.

Yeah, I did. Obviously you didn't.

"Why he's got money in cushions, I don't know," said Fauth-Newberry's husband, Mike Newberry.

Doesn't say one way or another how or why the money came from or why it was there. And considering it's that amount in a shitty old ottoman for a shitty old couch than yeah it most likely is dirty money. He sure as hell didn't earn it. Criminals don't put cash in banks, unless they own the banks.
Old guys that don't trust the banks and kept their money at home is common enough to be a trope. My GPA was one, although not all of his money. Occam's Razor. He wasn't a 90 year old Walter White.
