Response to malaise (Reply #6)

7. That sounds so nice!

I had to leave my home to drop things off at businesses in two area towns this morning. My boys were both asking if I actually had to, as they worry that I will be exposed to the virus. I was able to complete both errands without any contact with people, or with anything else. I try assuring them that I'm not as dumb as I look, for if I was, I'd have never made it alive this long.

When I got home, I saw that a package had been delivered for one of them. It was two 25 lb weights, fairly large and flat, and colored red, white, and blue. I noted that they looked like shields. A short time later, he had found an old "Captain America" Halloween mask, and had dressed for the part. This lead to his running about with the weights, yelling, "America needs a hero!" In a sense, it's not that different than 30+ years ago, when the three of us had our daily adventures.

I love the sound of birds singing, especially at this time of year.
