Only the tip of the iceberg, Gene. We've been taking in "orphans" for years
and years. The kidlets have been bringing them home "for dinner" or "just
one night" and they've stayed for years. No one comes looking for them, no
one seems to care.
I just really HATE those Staples commercials. Everyone seems to think they
are funny and I just think they are sad! Why have kids if you can't wait to
send them off to school. Doesn't anyone enjoy the company of their kids?
