New Year’s Eve me, 2020.

What do you know? You reach a point where it’s New Year’s Eve of the year 2020 A.D. How about that?

And I’m not grumpy! I’m…thoughtful.

Happy New Year everyone!

You seen any chickens?

On the way home from rowing practice this morning I came across a pair of foxes. They wouldn’t stand together for a photo, but they seemed to be having a good time.

It’s cold and my launch engine has stalled. Somewhere up ahead in the mist are a pair of women scullers and an eight of men rowing a day into motion.

“Which way did they go? I must find them. I am their leader.”

Another beautiful morning on the Kaw.

I was just extremely early for my Thursday doctor’s appointment. I guess I’ll hit the voting line a bit earlier than I thought.

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.

From Scott Blitstein:

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.


For folks who live where fireworks are illegal, it might be hard to convey the absolute insanity that went down in my neighborhood last night. (If, after hearing me describe it, you feel it was worse in your neighborhood, congrats.)… the rest “Boom”

I got a wonderful last-minute invite to come and share some of Will Leathem‘s and Leslie Everingham-Jones‘s Paella.

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 have such generous friends.

Really, I Feel Fine.

Is this roadkill connoisseur following me?

I’m not saying it’s a sign, but it might be best if I avoid standing still or lying down today.
