And, here I thought the Brown Squirrel was a bar and we would be blessed with pictures of debauchery and such.

No. Do you think I should? No one else is fool enough to take my spot so prolly won't.

As I mentioned, I'm headed to PA to visit The Ancestral Home, and I look and danged if Adams County PA isn't in the 'Substantial Transmission" category for COVID, per the CDC. When we made plans for this get together a couple months ago, everything looked a lot better.

Then I look at San Mateo County CA. Damned if we aren't in the same category. Frakkin' unvaccinated.

It looked better everywhere in the USA 2 months ago. Sad!

I'm hoping that it will spike and drop, like it apparently has in the UK.

Thing is, Adams County is the heart of the 'Alabama' part of Pennyslvania, so there's low mask compliance and low vaccination rate. I suspect masks may stick out like sore thumbs.

On the plus side, I'm going to hang out with family, all of whom are vaccinated.

You should be publicly reproached.

So you're saying that people in Pennsylvania, and people traveling from it, are virus superspreaders?

Oh yes.

I'm still feeling my knee from this. Oy.

I guess it will be a 'rest week'. I tried looking into bike rentals near Gettysburg, but I didn't find anything. I suppose there's always Shanks' Mare. Maybe a battlefield walk.

datlas lives near Gettysburg. He'll lend you one.

Sad. Saw them in the mid-80s.

Ron Popeil has also died.

You can feel it in the air, 24 hours of Spa right around the corner...

Slow night. Everyone must be watching the Olympics and preparing for this in the morning:
