Here's an interesting observation.

I just don't understand it. Went camping with family at a nearby lake for a few days.

Had a great time. We haven't been together in a year. The kids have grown so much. 12 and 14 year old grandsons are both taller than Granny. 11 year old granddaughter has grown, but is very petite.

On the way home we stopped at a travel center. Big sign on the door says:

ATTENTION. Face coverings are required inside the store.


Besides the cashiers, I saw one other person wearing a mask and it was pulled down under his chin so he could talk on the phone while he wandered around.

Arkansas has a 32% vaccination rate and people are acting like Covid has disappeared. This is why I believe we will be dealing with this disease from now on.

Here's what vaccination means to me. I'm camping at the lake with my daughter,

one of my sons and his family. All adults are fully vaccinated, the boys, 12 & 14, have had their first dose. Granddaughter, 11, is waiting for her age group to be eligible.

We live an hour apart, but haven't been together in over a year. Now we can do so safely.

There will be much cooking, playing of games and a lot of catching up to do over the next 3 days. We're already planning the next trip.

Father swan photographed caring for cygnets after Esplanade's 'Mother Swan' dies

Three days after the Charles River Esplanade’s mother swan died of undetermined causes, the father swan was spotted giving their cygnets a ride on its back across the Storrow Lagoon.

Matthew Raifman, a Boston University doctoral student in environmental health, began scanning the Esplanade for the swans around 2 p.m. Thursday and spotted them near the playground, he said in an interview.

---------------

But he “had no idea that the father was going to be … carrying some of the swans on his back,” he said.

In Raifman’s photographs, three gray cygnets huddle together on the back of the adult swan, which raises its wings on either side to form a cradle. A fourth fuzzy cygnet follows in the water just behind the adult swan’s tail.

I got this one from my youngest son:

"DeJoy wanted to issue a Donald Trump stamp but a market study showed that 65% of Americans would spit on the front side while the other 35% would lick the back side."

This sounds like a very good idea to me.

I'm not sure how I feel about this.
