I went to a dinner party at a friend’s home last weekend, and met her five-year-old daughter for the first time.
Little Maya was all curly brown hair, doe-like dark eyes, and adorable in her shiny pink nightgown. The word “fattest places” is Strong’s H meaning “fatness, fat piece, fertile spot or place, richly prepared food” where “fertile spot or place” is where the oil is located in the area (Middle East) or it could be America herself, as we are the richest county in the world and have just about as much oil reserves, if not more than the middle east.
Dear Reader (And especially Martha McSally’s dog), As I often note, I increasingly tend to see the political scene as a scripted reality show in which the writers don’t flesh out the dialogue.
