Ten Toes Addendum

Here is a blowup of the photo Miz Linda suggested. This is, of course, another shot of Mercede holding Ruffles. In this version, the big toe of the right foot appears more average in length. You can also more clearly see five toes instead of only four. It is quite possible that my whole idea of a longer big toe is a mistake, that it only appeared longer in the other photo. The question is whether the toes are distinctive or not. At this point, I am not sure myself, but this is not really the point of this exercise.

What I really want to know is if: (a) There is only one Trig, and there has always been only one Trig; (b) There are two Trigs and they are related by blood in some way; or (c) There are two unrelated Trigs. I generally lean toward there being at least two Trigs, but I do not know that for a fact. A secondary question is when did each Trig appear? Was Ruffles Trig from early '08 until the GOP convention and then Round Ear took over? Was Round Ear ever seen by anyone outside the family between April and August 2008? Was Levi holding two babies of about the same age in that one infamous photo? Is there a somewhat more active, Batwing Trig that appeared on the book tour? Inquiring minds want to know.

Yes, I'm with you in now believing that there are/were two Trigs.

There was something in the way Levi once answered a question about Trig that seemed like a "tell." He said that Trig is Sarah's baby with a kind of look that suggested both that Trig is hers (legally was the hint), but that he knows what everyone wants to know and isn't ready to disclose the story. This cast a bit of doubt in my mind that he is the father of Trig, but I'm open to surprises.

He's so young. He's probably thinking he's got to hang on to any ace he has for as long as he can for his child's sake and his personal income. Can't blame him. He's definitely walking the spider web.

Miz Linda, coincidentally, I was just comparing several photos and mulling over several issues that we have recently discussed. For instance, I am not so sure that the airplane shot is Tripp; maybe it is Trig, but it really doesn't matter much. The key issue is the two Trigs, not Trig and Tripp. Would you consider contacting me directly at tabitha at nctv dot com? We might exchange some useful information that way.
