Things Happened Here

A little rain must fall.

Now it begins.

Rain. Heat. Humidity. A southern summer.

I’ve gotten used to it, but it lasts so long. We’ll be lucky if the weather begins to cool off in mid-October. Although with the pandemic age, time still has almost no meaning. I continue to think Friday is either Thursday or Saturday. I continue to awaken at strange times.

I had a lot of end of the month work to do, so when I woke up this morning I had a coffee and sat down in front of the computer. I worked steadily for a while. I had another coffee. It dawned on me that it was still dark outside. It was 4 am. I would have gone back to bed, but after two coffees and a lot of thinking I was wide awake.

I just stayed up.

The dogs thought that I was being ridiculous.

We’ll see what happens tomorrow.


It happened again.

The mayor posted on social media. She said because she knew many people make a very long weekend of The 4th of July she wished everybody a happy holiday. She wrote in an offhand way, that we should stay safe, stay hydrated and wear our masks.

She was attacked again. She’s a Democratic mayor. So, comments ranged from damn liberals to even worse about her political affiliation.


The Picture

You know me. See it. Shoot it. Luckily, I was at a light. At night. I made a lot of pictures.

Stay safe. Stay mighty. Enjoy a bowl of salad.
