It’s a bit gloomy here. The rest of the town appears to be missing.

Downtown Lawrence has gone into hiding.

I awoke this morning at 4 a.m. in my new apartment in Lawrence, KS. I guess it’s official now. Or is it official when everything I own isn’t randomly spread about on the floor?

Looking forward to great new experiences in #LFK.

Again, the ineptitude of our administration to do even the least amount of work to manage this crisis is causing hundreds of thousands of lost lives.

Waste Not, Want Not

Unhappy child.
Satisfaction is relative.

This morning’s breakfast was special so I’ll share how I prepared it.

Leave two bunches of spinach in the the refrigerator for..a long time.

Pick out all the nasty bits of spoiled spinach, leaving slightly less than … the rest “Waste Not, Want Not”

Ants Marching

I must admit I’ve been a little smug about how I’ve managed to keep my apartment ant-free since I moved in.

That’s over now.

War is upon me, but I’ve trained for this.

Enjoying another amazing food share from my friend Will Leathem. The man can cook it up!

I just had a wonderful phone conversation with a friend from back in my New Jersey youth. Someone I haven’t seen since I was about 14-15 years old. It was the easiest thing in the world. Friends online now friends again in the direct sense. Reach out.

They may be sorry they had me over as there wasn’t much food left by the time I got through eating. Left with cookies and homemade apple pie under my arm.

I think the days of heat have arrived. There will be a few more cool nights maybe, but it’s time to shift over to warm brain.

I can never escape the feeling that he’s always watching.
