Thankful

If ever there was a year that gave so many so little to be thankful for, it’s 2020. Illness, deaths, job losses, isolated from family and friends, and the entire election cycle of poisoned rhetoric and flat-out lies has made this a year I think we’d all like to just flush like the giant turd […]

Covid…Rhymes With Covid

Well it seems I’ve found myself at home for an undetermined amount of time. Maybe just three days. Maybe thirteen. A week ago I came down with what I’d describe as a mere head cold. I had a low grade fever after a day of being outside and raking/blowing leaves around the yard. It felt […]
