The good weather and work continue. No chance of flowers going away any time soon. The rainbow-colored morning glories especially are in their prime, intertwined with the wild grapes along the back fence. Hummers are still humming away among the zinnias, though no luck yet sneaking up on them.
To look out there, you’d never guess there’s a world full of dying people all around us, and the next routine shopping trip could be our last. That’s true any time, but with a much higher probability now. I try not to think about it too much, just armor up and limit our exposure. And get ready to vote the demented criminal out.
