I filled out the census questionnaire on National Census Day after a couple of notices. It took, heh, only 10 minutes. Have you filled out yours? I write about mine, as well as the blessed end of March, in Friday’s column.
I manage to celebrate my birthday with friends over what was a very strange weekend for us all. Coronavirus conversation dominates, I take in one last movie and then go to a friend’s half-empty wedding party. That chronicle makes up Wednesday’s column.
My road trip to Tempe, Arizona last week is the subject of Wednesday’s column — first the drive, then the baseball game I saw. Also, it’s nice to be back!
I was back at my desk Tuesday morning for the first time since last Wednesday morning, when I went home sick. (I came in that day sick, too, but needed to get my laptop, notes and a few things, knowing I wouldn’t be back for a spell.) Usually I try to do something fun on Super Bowl Sunday, but it didn’t quite work out this year. That’s the subject of Wednesday’s column.
A personal circumstance last weekend resolved itself so perfectly, I instantly knew it could make a column. And so, in a change of pace, I write about my laundry. Hey, why not. You can read about my missing sock, etc., in Sunday’s column.
In the second of two columns on my vacation, I write about some of the places I visited, sights I saw and foods I ate, all in Friday’s column.
I’m back from vacation, but writing about my vacation. Specifically, about the pleasures of a road trip and about the perfectly fine, and perfectly priced, roadside motel. That’s in Wednesday’s column. I plan to follow up Friday with some further notes on things I saw, did and ate. From there, we’ll be back to business as usual — whatever that is.
I don’t know that I’ve wished you well on a holiday in a while, but if you have a three-day weekend, or at least today off, enjoy. I have three days, and it’s a welcome break from the grind. Monday I’m hoping to finally catch a matinee of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Surely I’ll have three hours to spare on my third day off in a row. Plus, I already expect that the air conditioning will be a bonus.
