1. I hate how fast the year has gone already. I have a theory that living for weekends (paddling) makes time feel more accelerated than age already does.
2. Friends of mine lost their house and four pets to a fire earlier this week; check the batteries in your smoke alarms today! Cause is believed to be a short in a ceiling fan.
3. Two friends with Rocky Mtn. Spotted Fever; several acquaintances with Lyme. Be vigilant against ticks. Google "permethrin" and "tick tubes".
4. I need a positive for this list today so... it is Friday; week so far: lawn is mowed; basil and tomato plants; peaches and blueberries; kindle and sandals; visit with Scott; haircut; alnico blues; offside roll; brown sound; magnificient greens and sunshine.
