*Really important* -- If you are trying to friend me, we have to have talked about something in a chat first, and more than just "Hi". I'm happy to friend any nice chatters who I seem to have something in common with. Asking to be my friend *before* we talk about something is a waste of time.
And to clarify for those of you who have asked - that picture is dated now. Add some wrinkles and gray to it, as the years have so graciously donated them to me.
joe438: Sis, I hope you're staying safe with the rioting. Are you near any of that? Please say you're not...
aoelberg: I'm fine Joe, thanks. I work north of the city and the riots are in the south part. I live north of work. We've been asked to stay out of the office and work at home anyway (COVID) but this is yet another reason to just stay up north.
Remind me again why I left Boston? I mean, I love being close to my mom and she needed me here but MN is not the idyllic paradise I had hoped.
aoelberg to joe438: Thank you dear! It's 30 up here at Mom's house now. Imagine that? How's you mom? Did you get to spend time with her yesterday? Mine is doing pretty well, considering. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you're behaving yourself. Don't make me come out to Boston to deal with you!
joe438: *gulp* Yes, sis. Would you actually come out here? [considering his options]
It's always good to hear from you and I'm glad things are going well. Let's talk soon. Happy New Year if it's not right away.
joe438: I hope you're staying warm, sis. I saw it was like -20 for you. Brrr... If I don't see you on here (and I doubt I will) Merry Christmas!
ivorycity226: Hello from Toronto. How are you? Hope we can chat? Do you have wechat or whatsapp? And could you add me? Thanks
