We started talking like this after too many years of watching Lil' Markie struggle to read the Teleprompter every morning.

I love Mark Alford. His early morning sarcasm is the only one my husband and I will watch. He's been pointing out the illiterates for years.

Pretty rich coming from him. He is terrible at his job. The guy CANNOT read the teleprompter. He stumbles over words constantly and it is so annoying.

Handsome photo. I too love Mark's humor. Keep posting Alford, Tony. Humor by the sound bite!
Having a great month--Chiefs won, Trump acquitted. Mayor Pete won actual 14 delegates in Iowa to Bernie's 12. Klobuchar is beating Biden in NH.

And just 4 months till June, when KCMO once again patches potholes in Waldo so we can dash across the state line from Joco to their Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.

Life be good, by the bye and by the each, peach.
