With a tractor it would have been too easy. We had a tractor though, mostly for mowing.

In a related matter, my college friend had a small scale brewery in Baltimore about 10 years ago, it was apparently good beer but life changes made him close.

Last I heard, he was planning to move the whole shuttered operation to Atlanta and restart it. That was pre-COVID19, however.

Keeping a brewery open is tough work. Wife and I made friends with the owner of a place around the corner from our house and they’re struggling right now, despite being able to stay open. They had to close their taproom and go to growlers and crowlers only (they didn’t have a canning operation), now they’re doing online orders only. We hit them up once a week to support their business. They’re good people so I hope they stay afloat.

I have nothing substantive to add.

I listened to 'Grievous Angel' this morning. Emmylou Harris' first album appearance iirc.

Truth.

I think it's because they're needy, gotta interact with somebody even if their life is at stake. smfh

I would guess that that bottle of wine was buried in Jones' back yard for a few years.

I only go to the market that has ample self checkouts now days, to avoid jerks getting too close to me.

I'm sure that being out of the house and wanting to linger is a part of it, for some, but I think that another big factor is that a lot of people that didn't didn't cook much are now cooking (or trying) a lot more. I see so many more people with that lost look on their faces every time I go.

12 years full of good days still don't prepare us for this day. Yesterday sucked.

I don't have any pre-op pics except x-rays. Next time my wife has to dress it (weekend), I might get a pic. Pretty ugly. I have to keep it wrapped full time, except to change the wrap every two days. And I'm pretty paranoid about leaving it open long, infection wise

I guess I could photograph the x-rays showing the pin, if you want to see that. Stitches come out a week from tomorrow, supposedly. Prolly not so ugly after that.

Daughter is volunteering in full PPE at a Cov-2 testing station in an airplane hangar in Galway, just to get out of the house. They are limited to a 2 km radius of home by decree, otherwise.

You're a doctor, for christ's sake! You've opened cadavers! It was a lot more stirring in the flesh, I can tell you that. Something I will never unsee

Makes me want to break out in that kids' song, remember??

Where is pointer? Where is pointer? Here I am! Here I am!
