The week gone by — Aug. 30

Suzi and I always wear our masks when we go into a building, but don’t usually wear them when we walk.

Whether it’s the streets of our town, a trail or one of the nature areas we visit on Sundays, there are usually not many people around and plenty of space to keep our distance from anyone we encounter.

But we noticed the new trail we started last week was a bit narrower, there were more people and those people seemed a little more aggressive.

So when we went back to the same trail this week, we took our masks. We also picked up the trail in a different town, and based on the signs, they’re requiring people to wear masks outside.

So we wore them.

Everyone else was, too.

It wasn’t that hard.


“If you met yourself, would you like yourself?” should be an easy one to answer, but it wasn’t. (Rosie also had an interesting take, since I think we took the same road to different places.)

Cass moved into her new place a year ago.

Rachel and Alex are right … you don’t need a pass to hit the bathroom in college.

How much risk are you willing to take at the moment? Now imagine being Lucy, who for health reasons had to stay inside for 154 days.

James has all the secrets to being a great blogger.


Rock Harbor is one of my favorite places on the Cape. I once had to spend all day down there for work … tough gig indeed.

No, but I remember Sanka, and that’s close enough.

What he said.

Almost certain that I’ve done this.

It only gets worse as you get older.

You could do worse.

One of these has raisins, which answers that question without me even having to think.
