I Saw You

Week of Dec. 21

Walmart on Colton on Sunday, December 17th between 9:00 AM and 10 AM You were the young man security guard at the front entrance. My husband and I were leaving. You saw us and flashed us a very warm, tenderhearted smile. We had a rough difficult couple of days, and that smile of yours just made our day. We just wanted to say thank you for something we truly needed at that moment in time. It truly made all the difference in the world. May you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Dang Cute Democrat I saw you at the Spokane Dems Holiday party. You were wearing a Bernie Sanders shirt and spent the night chatting with everyone, flashing that perfect dimpled smile. I couldn't keep my eyes off of you. I heard that you might be thinking about running locally — hit me up if you'd like some help? And a date? I was wearing navy blue and came in with the short blond and the taller red-head.

Lost At Sea I waded far out into the water, and now I am lost at sea. You are you the one lost at sea? Please come back to me, come home to me my lover. Don't let me drown here in these sorrows of yesterday. I pray this mortal veil of fear will be lifted from our eyes, and that we would no longer be ashamed of our nakedness, and we would no longer need these "fig leaves" of ego to cover up our love for each other. I love you mr.sexy.

My Boobear I love you more than I could ever say. I am so unbelievably proud of you for how far you've come with school ! You are almost done baby! Thank you for being so good to me and for loving me the way you do. You are such an amazing momma to out beautiful bubba. I would love more than anything to spend the rest of my life with you baby. I love you so much boo bear. <3K

Snuggles the Bear Lying in bed every morning I think of you, and I miss your warm and comforting embrace. There is no one who makes me feel as safe, protected, and loved as you do. My spirit can finally rest knowing that you are my true love and our love is as strong as death. Many waters can not quench our love. No one and nothing will ever be able to cut us asunder. I wasn't strong enough to hold both our pain, but I now know that where I am weak you are strong. And I need your strength. I have always loved you, and always will, forever.

Scandalous Games: Attention residents of Hillyard, People's Park, NH, and most of the South Hill. Next spring Dr. H (of Whitworth/Dartmouth) and I will hopefully be playing three "friendly" games of racquetball, on the Ides of March (Idus Martiae). SERVICE shock-waves alert: Citizens, please take the following community precautions: 1) nail down all plastic peanut butter jars, 2) bolt DVD's, 3) stay out of the air, 4) avoid sleeping under a loaded shelf during the day, and: 5) make sure to keep a bullhorn handy. Remember folks if they can't see you under a hill of building rubble, the odds are that the brave men and women of the Spokane Fire Department will not be able to provide a speedy rescue. BTW, most of my opponents randomly jump left or right: like a free kick... GOAL! Remember ladies and gentleman, people in wheelchairs are some of the best of us. (Empty, nail, replace, screw... stow) They key to survival in many situations is being prepared. There is life after racquetball... slowly and surely, Spokane will rebuild. Dr. H for Gov! Make America Great Again!

Amazing Friends Cheers to Jade and Kade for gifting us a working set - washer and dryer- you have no idea what it means to us! We hope you have an amazing holiday and call on us whenever you should need! <3

Me Too! Thank you. "Me Too! - Thank you Inlander for Reckoning. Voices of women from our region, wrote with courage and honesty about the pervasiveness and harm of sexual misconduct. We are all affected directly or indirectly, me too. Sexual misconduct has power over another at its core. When anyone in our neighborhood, workplace, community, city experiences sexual misconduct the tendency is to be quiet, live in shame. No more: the dark closet is open wide, thanks to women, and men all over our city, our country.Reckoning is used by Dr. Brene' Brown, research professor at U. of Houston, Social Work as the foundation for her model Rising Strong. Reckoning is recognizing and with fierce courage, vulnerability and awareness naming the trouble. Step 2 is Rumbling, owning the story, revisiting it again and again, honestly challenging ourselves with the truth as it is. Step 3 is Revolution, committing to change the story to match the truths uncovered, transform ourselves into wholeness, a new way of being in the world. Archbishop Desmond TuTu, early resister to apartheid states, "My humanity is bound up with yours, for we can only be human together." He came to lead the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa. Step 1 is confession and full disclosure of responsibility by the person for their actions. Step 2 is forgiveness by the community to the offender. Step 3 is restitution to the person harmed.Each model, and there are others, requires all parties to face the truth, let go of denial and rationalization, full acceptance of the harm done, and integrating both to form a new way of being in the world. We are all stronger and healthier for this new path."

Can the Chauvinism I love listening to KISS98.1 during the holidays for Christmas music. However, could you cool it on the chauvinism? I was listening on my morning commute, and was blasted by boob jokes. Seriously??? The good old boys days are over. Read a newspaper. Read: PATHETIC AND SMALL.

Addicts of Spokane Here's a big ol' jeers to the Disneyland parents. Must be really nice to be able to sweep in at your own convenience while everyone else does the work for you. You've got the Facebook crowd pleased with your faux "candid" photos and your "Loving parent of two" BS. Normal people see you for the kind of person you actually are. Miserable and utterly alone. Enjoy it while you can. It won't last forever.

Karma Before you engage in another relationship, you should learn how to love and how to be loved. Maybe you were intimidated that when you returned to me you found a confident, successful woman admired by her peers, not the insecure girl you once knew. I don't know why you disappeared except maybe you were ashamed that you weren't supportive at such a critical time. Or maybe you had sensed my withdrawal. You love the term narcissist to describe others, but in fact it is a true reflection of you. If you disagree, you're not being honest with yourself or you do not really know what the word means. Return to therapy so you can become the person you need to be to be fulfilled and happy and a true companion deserving of a good partner. I really wish that for you.

Price of abuse If men are going to help bring change they need to quit enabling. The exact quote in an article in your magazine was; "President Donald Trump has also been accused of unacceptable behavior." WRONG! Trump has admitted, on tape to entering the dressing rooms of young models while they were undressing. Trump has also admitted on tape to having grabbed women by the pussy. Trump HAS NOT been accused, he has TESTIFIED, against himself. If the Inlander is really interested in protecting women from sexual deviants you need to print the truth. THE WHOLE TRUTH!

Re: Scumbags Absolutely brilliant post on the infant brains who draw all over public and private property in Spokane. These feeble minded morons have no idea how dumb their work looks to most everyone. Someday every area will be recorded and these dumbo faces will be all over law enforcement radar. I'll bet they will get to get rid of their own coloring. In the meantime, know there are others who find these people just as stupid as you do. Hopefully they pay for their crimes someday. This submission site is terrible for proofing. Maybe they will figure out a good app. I quit trying. ♦
