Cookies and Detention

Got what started out to be the cutest phone call ever tonight, from Blake and Sandi's daughter. She selling Girl Scout cookies for the first time ever, so I ordered a couple of boxes of thin mints.

His wife is a citizen, and their children are all citizens. His main problem is that before he married A, he was in India's secret service. He was even stationed in Moscow for awhile. Feeling really bad for A and the kids right now.
