Subject: RE: BS: Check in Mudcatters world wide
My knee replacement was an early mention on this thread - and it works much better than the old one that had me walking gingerly and kept me awake nights (though the surgery is a rough one to recover from, I suspect Mary will concur). The trouble was it was like "all dressed up and no place to go" - I could get out and do things again but everything was closed down. A lot of it still is. The museum where I was volunteering twice as week is negotiating how to set up safe work stations as the museum slowly opens to the public. The cramped office where we worked before is out of bounds now.

My garden went in late and is much smaller than usual, but it is producing enough to provide the usual summer pleasure of picking and eating or picking a lot and canning. Our first frost is usually late October through mid-November, so there is plenty of growing season left.

The curve is gradually flattening, noticeable over the last few weeks; the wearing of masks (a state requirement) seems to finally be turning this around, but the counties here are still are in dangerous territory, with over 200 new cases a day showing up via testing. No telling how many are out there in the community untested. I am still staying home as much as I can; the few trips out are during "Senior Hours" at a local grocery store when possible. I got my annual flu shot yesterday.

I need a haircut. My ex was over yesterday to pick up some groceries after my rare trip out for fresh produce; he is so shaggy he asked me to take a photo to send to the kids. :)
