Sooo, we couldn’t take our planned holiday this Summer, but I am happy that I’m getting a vacation – a nice chance to relax, get some exercise, play a little music, and enjoy some delicious cocktails and sea food. 
I’ve been on a FB hiatus for July, you know, because FB is a force for evil and not good, and today I decided to take a break from Twitter as well. I subscribe to some great publications, from the Atlantic to the Washington Post, so I’ll stick to them for a week or so and have a brief respite from the firehose of doom and authoritarianism of which I’ve seen altogether too much of late.

Meanwhile had a very nice and flat, breezy of rather hot run today…

Today’s run

And a lovely cosmopolitan…


And recorded a song…

Here’s the music setup:

Folks here along the Delaware/Maryland seashore are well distanced, wearing masks inside every place I’ve been, and just generally doing their thing.

All in all, not a bad way to spend some time – I’m quite thankful to have a place to go and a job to which I can return.

Boarding was the typical IAD A-terminal mob scene. Today's special? Boarding two flights, not just via one gate (very common at the IAD A gates), but by only one of the two doors. Already one girl fled this plane after discovering that it was bound for DFW, not ELM!

I think if I were to end up going to the wrong city, other things being equal, I'd rather end up in Dallas than Elmira!
