TOF's Tochter is working a job a couple valleys north of the Heimatland, up in the Wyoming Valley. Yesterday she fell in conversation with a co-worker, who was wondering what to get her mother for her birthday/Mother's Day. She was considering an ebook reader, like a Kindle or Nook, since her mother was a librarian. It was either that or a gun. Since her mother was also a competitive shooter. She asked her father and her father was shocked. "Don't buy your mother a gun!" he gasped. "I already bought her one."
Yessir. Pennsylvania, where a daughter can't buy her mommy a gun because her daddy already did.
