Love and War

Stuie made one good decision: Sadje.

Smoking, drinking, and sneaking into radioactive facilities were not good decisions.

Worst was writing Sadje out of the will.

“All’s fair in love and…” He died.

Sadje tore the will; took the trailer. She loved it.

      Thanks, John! 42 words takes a lot of trimming!

    My maternal grandfather’s second wife tore up the will, said there wasn’t a will, and got all the money and the hotel. However she did it in more that 42 words and took nearly 60 years of saying it (over and over).
