Rain gaiters were in some infant's cubby. Said infant's good-natured mother failed to remark on their presence.

Red-haired possibly Nfld cashier is actually from Ireland.

Reading Agatha Christie. I knew Sayers was anti-semitic, but Christie's version somehow went over my head when I read her in my teens.

The evergreen bush in front of my house was a low shrub 26 years ago. It's now a trifurcated spindly thing trying to reach the level of the porch ceiling and I just cut a third of it down.

Hard to tell these days if feeling generally lousy has a physical or a psychological cause. Trumpites stay happy because they don't listen to any news that would disturb their equilibrium.

I hate it when the world diverges from rational, and things just vanish.

Yes, it's the black water syndrome- things that can't vanish do, things that were right here are gone. Makes one doubt reality.

It is an unconscious anti-semitism and not nearly as unpleasant as Sayers'. More, that she has to point out- or have a character point out- that someone is Jewish whenever a Jewish character appears. Much the way more modern authors feel the need to describe the skin tone of any non-white character.
