This has been a truly ghastly year, and even the weather today as I write this is metaphorically on point: it's drizzly and rainy and the screen on my library window is filled with raindrops so I can't really even see outside very well.
I won't write my usual long list of things I'm thankful for, but suffice it to say that even in a year like this, it's still quite a long list, when I really put some thought into it.
Stay safe, folks. Please don't take unnecessary trips and please oh please oh please, keep your masks on. It looks like we might very well get through this all right, but if this pandemic is a baseball game, we're only in the bottom of the fifth. Let's play the whole nine innings, folks.
Oh, and here's a sleeping dog.
