Gosh darn it, I want Samara back from Poland. That's the third war I've lost in a row.

I guess I'll have to fight for my right to a piece of Denmark. My fief-slumlord ancestor got out of Denmark under his wife's hoop skirt.

What I really want back is some civility, and it's not gonna happen until I can relocate. Alas.

I think so. It may not have been here, though.

Surprising how fresh the wound still seems after finding that Web site again (had to look for it too -- which says something right there). I thought that I had gotten over it at least a bit.

Edit to add: And, you know, it's not really that the house is no longer in the family. I certainly wouldn't be able to do anything with it, and I really wouldn't want to see any of my family members living there -- Kanab is a great place to visit or perhaps to retire too, but it has some issues.

Indeed, if some funky writer or eco-lawyer or retired librarian/school teacher was living in the place, that'd be great. It's seeing a house that is unique and hand-built (and that I have a connection too) gentrified and commoditized and rent out to people who can drop $159 a night to have their little pseudo-spiritual, get-in-touch with the mystery of the desert, and/or hang out with the freaky animal people vacation.
