    A beautiful, sunny spring day. We made it to 80˚F, when you factor in the heat index. So, during the long silence, there were books. See the photo…

  • Two in a Row!

    And, just so you know, the last time I did two LJ entries on two consecutive days was October 18th and 19th. What happened? I went into COVID-19…
