You say "A bit late." A week before Christmas Peg ordered a gift for me from a place two towns away. I've been wondering what it is. Because it hasn't been delivered yet.
Maybe it will be like something I sent out for Christmas in early December. I forgot the postage...(ooops). It was returned to me a few days ago. It moved as fast as Turga...you will get your gift eventually and if not, it will be returned to Peg.😅

For once this tortoise was quick 😇 Anticipating carrier chaos worse than usual around Christmas due to corona and everyone ordering presents from online stores, I called a virtual ‘family council’ in early October to have all make up their wish lists no later than November 1. We all had our presents secured well before Christmas.

When everything is going as planned we will be vaccinated somewhere in March .

I love banana bread...especially when it comes with nuts.😅
Me too. But please, no nuts. There are enough here.

There have been serious things happening in Washington, DC today but, on the Not Serious side, as the police are pushing back the crowd into the dark and the cameras are filming reinforcements coming up to the Capitol grounds with the lights on their car roofs lit up Peg asks me "Where are the pizza delivery guys?"

Early this morning I used different web forms to send separate but identical short messages to our congressman and senators. Each had a different list in a drop-down menu of broad category for concerns. I had to hunt for my concern and only came close to what I wanted. Later this morning Peg did the same. This time all three had a right on the mark category and it was made the default.

I take the credit.

Moissac to Santiago Spring 2005 was the first foray.
In the UK we have been having different regional Tiers, the higher the Tier the harder the lockdown. Our current lockdown is national and is also known as Tier 5 (I think - can't keep up). But we have been told that perhaps by Easter Tiers will be regional again (I think - I can't keep up).

The answer to all of life's ills on this thread is Elephants and Red socks.
All the rest we leave to the very, very serious folks.

Keep this quiet, a secret just between the two of us but....

I love secrets!...but gotta say, how does he wheel it home?🤔
