Naked Horses

The high today was 75˚F.

I had a nice walk around the property late today, trying to rebuild this meatsack after thirteen months in quarantine. Thirteen months in this chair, at this keyboard, and little else. I was hoping we'd see some lizards today – skinks or anoles or maybe an invasive gecko – but no dice. Lots of birds though, including a certain mourning dove.

If you haven't seen Ricky Staub's Concrete Cowboy (Netflix), starring Idris Elba, you really owe it to yourself to take the time to do so. We saw it tonight, and it's just wonderful. I was pleased to see that the director drew from Philadelphia's Black cowboy community for the cast.

Later Taters,
