I am thankful:
I am not a Penn State alumnus. I am in fact thankful that I have nothing whatsoever to do with them. I am thinking about removing the sign in front of my property that directs you to the Lehman campus, as it may be construed as aiding and abetting.
I have limited my contact with the human race. My job is now 100% from home. My trips out in the world are few and brief and timed to give me the minimum interaction. This works out just fine.
We have managed to recover 80% from Tropical Storm Lee. We still have several trees down (anyone want some Applewood? Free!) but the one leaning against the house is gone, with a staggering amount of effort. New roof, some paint and we are pretty much there.
We don’t live in Shickshinny. Many many reasons.
That my health has improved over the past year. I know I have added years to my stay on the planet-here’s hoping that the years I have gained will be good ones.
For all my loved ones, near and far. It is, in the end, what it is all about.
