    The cousin obviously needs more help than your brother will be able to give. For someone that hoards like that there has to be some sort of underlying mental issue. Besides, Mom should come first.

    I feel for your brother, he has made great sacrifices and looks like he will continue to sacrifice. God bless him.

    Contemplating a great Chip and Dale Purge of 2020. I tolerate them until they start getting into the house. Not sure how the little ****** got in here, maybe open garage door or patio door. Heard some noises I thought were from downstairs. Rummaged around the lower level. Saw a chipmunk poopie and went back upstairs and there the little **** was on top of my turntable. Was able to chase him out the patio door after a brief climb up my arboricola.

    When Mrs. Velo was living in Ames she started to have a bad smell in her basement. I took apart the dryer vent and found a ground squirrel that had crawled in there and died. Good thing it didn't get into the dryer because she would have FREAKED OUT if she opened the dryer and that flew out of there at her.

    I know I've asked this before but this seems more relevant than ever. Our RT threads have been shut down after 21,000, 18,000, 16,000 or fewer posts because the size of them were affecting site performance. That abomination of an Iowa FB recruiting thread now has over 45,000 posts in it and is still open. The thing was started by a known iowa troll posing as a Cyclone fan and the recruiting class that it is supposed to be about was over 4 years ago. Why isn't that shut down?

    Been there, done that. Was a maggot infested mess that was moving because so many maggots. Uber gross.

    Thinking back, I had actually cooked him. Heard something while running the drier. Turned it off and it stopped. Turned in on and sounded like pebbles in the vent. Ignored it. It was actually probably the sound of him tried to claw up the metal vent.

    Im guessing that thread gets 10X more views daily then this one. The income generated has to be enormous.

    Because in the opt out universe? Can't say for sure, never visited the darkside, the sunside in the "sports" forum is bad enough some days.

    It just seems like activity and size would be a problem/not a problem regardless of the forum in which it resides.

    All that matters is if Sara likes the size.

    Just saw some girl drive by with her left foot up on the dash where the vent would be. Texting too of course.
