We suddenly have this urge to use excessive emoji, and that can only mean one thing: There’s a brand new episode of Younger! This week on the TV Land series, Liza (Sutton Foster) juggles everything from tolerating a ghosting boyfriend to being coerced into a walking competition to saving the day the new imprint’s launch party. Meanwhile, a certain someone who once hooked up with a pregnant Renée Elise Goldsberry hosts a sex party. It’s a lot to take in, but we’re breaking it all down in this week’s recap.SEASON 2, EPISODE 3: “Like a Boss”Emoji UpdateTranslation: Liza puts off telling her millennial friends about her real age to Josh’s chagrin. Short on cash, Maggie considers putting her apartment on Airbnb. At Empirical Press, Kelsey and Liza share their imprint launch party plans (it’s at a glue factory and they’re inviting someone named Pompous Croissant). Diana, always eager to win and even more eager to force labor upon her assistant, has Liza wear her Fitbit to out-walk her rival. Lauren arranges a fitting for Kelsey and Liza to ensure they’re dressed to the nines at the launch. Over wine, the three girls and Lauren’s mom (Kathy Najimy) discuss Josh’s ghosting habit. Dismayed by Internet comments and her custom dress that vaguely looks like one of the moons of Jupiter, Kelsey begins a slow descent into madness. Meanwhile, Josh discovers Maggie is not hosting an Airbnb couple from Albany, but rather a full-blown sex party. At the launch event, Liza saves the day by talking Kelsey through her speech via Bluetooth. Impressed by her craftiness, Charles chats up Liza, but before he can make a move, Josh (no longer a ghost) steps in.Biggest OMG Moment:If the eggplant and peach emoji make you blush, do not attend a party at Maggie’s place. To make ends meet, our favorite fictional lesbian artist hosts an orgy in her apartment (safe sex only; men pay $50, women $25). And from the look of it, she has absolutely done this before. Hey, when times are hard, some bake people into pies, some burn their rock posters and screenplays, and others host sex parties in their Williamsburg flats.Millennial Glossary:To Ghost:(verb) To seemingly disappear off the face of the earth, but still manage to pop up in social media feeds. It’s what Josh keeps doing to Liza, and just when Peter’s about to swoop in with Champagne and workplace flirting, Josh reappears. We’ll give Josh some credit for sticking by Liza after her big reveal, but this is surely a red flag.Pompous Croissant:(noun) A fictional member of the “cyber-elite” invited to Kelsey and Liza’s imprint launch. We’re not sure what his or her exact beat is, but we’ll be at any party that promises baked goods (hint hint, Alex Brightman).Moment That Made Us Go:When Diana defeated her Fitbit rival! And by Diana, we mean Liza. Yes, Trout Pout even delegates her fitness regime to her lowly assistant. But with everything else going on, Liza still managed to step her way to victory. Must have been that eight-minute tap break on a boat.Diana’s Statement Jewelry Update!After flashing medieval and ultra-hygienic looks, Diana Trout is serving us Department of Defense Realness. Not only is she sporting a torpedo pendant as this week’s statement necklace, but it’s also paired with actual pentagon earrings. Do they sell those at the gift shop? Is there even a Pentagon gift shop? View Comments
Kenneth “Kenny” A. Huffmeyer, age 90, of Osgood passed away early March 3, 2018, surrounded by his family. He was born on May 7, 1927, the son of the late Herman and Sena (Klingworth) Huffmeyer outside of Osgood. He grew up in a household with his parents and seven siblings. He was a graduate of the Napoleon High School Class of 1946. He was known to all of us as Kenny, but his mother always called him Kenneth. Kenny, in his teenage years, was active in 4-H and as a young adult took part in the 5 Acre Corn contest in Ripley County.Kenny had several loves and passions in his life. He was a lifetime member of St. John’s Lutheran Church and this led him to meet Jane Ricketts and they were married on August 25, 1951, and they recently celebrated their 66th year of marriage. When you want to think about the American Dream and living it out, they built a family and home thru diligence and hard work. They lived outside of Napoleon and purchased their first farm in 1953 and lived on it until building a new home and moving in it in 1985. The bond between these two remained as strong as ever up until the very end.Kenny’s heart and soul was being a farmer, raising both crops and livestock. He lived by the theory that if the sun was up, then there was something to do. He was indeed a steward of the land, being one of the very first in the area to practice no-till farming. He was awarded the Ripley County Soil and Water Conservation Farmer of the Year. His membership in the church saw him involved in teaching Sunday school, singing in the choir, and served several terms on the church council. He was also a member of the local Farm Bureau.Kenny is survived by his wife, Jane, son Larry (Charlene), daughter Lavita Huffmeyer (Tom Godar) of Osgood, grandchildren; April (Jeremy) Hughes of Osgood, Sara (Jeff) Page of Trafalgar, Amber (Eric) Peetz of Batesville, and Bill (Julie) Huffmeyer of Osgood, and great grand children; Kasin, Landin, Braydin, and Lynkin and Addysin Hughes, Samual and Emmett Page, Jackson and Ella Peetz, and August and Clay Huffmeyer.He was preceded in death in by his parents, and siblings Mabel Lauber, Helen Schulenburg, Mildred Oller, Martha Hartwell, Calvin Huffmeyer, Elnora VansOsdol, and Norman Huffmeyer.Visitation will be held from 4:00-7:00 pm on Monday, March 5, 2018, at Neal’s Funeral Home in Osgood. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Napoleon at 11:00 am., with the body lying in state from 10:00 am. until service.
