FIELD REPORT DU HQ | From Wherever It May Be Said

Halloween-time is here and I’m already checked out. Too much to pay in bills, too many hours needed to work, and tomorrow I start packing Momkoke’s things for her move to an assisted living place located in the American small town where I live on the edge. So, I have no well-researched Report for you this week but, if catharsis is in order, then a Moment of Sven (or multiple) might be what you need. Breathe in…
