Friday

Welcome, family and friends to our daily journal. Share it with your friends.

‘Tain’t pretty but it is still an impressive sunrise. This is a sun that means business. It came to bring the heat and is dressed for the job. Some suns rise slowly, majestically, through clouds of gold and brass. Not this sun. It sprang over the horizon, with no fanfare, already ablaze, wrapped in white fire. This is a work-a-day sun and pity and cloud that crosses its path.Morning videohough we are not sick, yet the coronavirus has imprisoned us none the less. Sleep! We are doing too much of it! No where to go and all day to get there. Aimless we stumble through the day searching for something, just forever beyond our finding. Until, at last, bed, couch, or recliner once again exerts its gravitational pull and drags us once again into unconsciousness.ndless boredom brings to mind the Soliloquy from Macbeth: Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.”

(from Macbeth, spoken by Macbeth)
By William Shakespeare

Macbeth was in error. It is not tomorrow, but today, that winds its petty pace from day to day. And the day is no longer filled with sound and fury, but silence that encases us like grey concrete, deep and thick.

I found the instructions that came with the step ladder hilarious! What kind of lawsuits have they had in the past that made these legal noticed necessary?Because you just know that some drunk and or stoned person fell and sued the ladder manufacture. Right?And some person just tossed the ladder on or in their truck. The ladder came loose and caused an accident. Not able to get any money out of the trunk driver, they sued the ladder manufacture. It happens, you know.Whooowhee! I sure hope our portable air conditioner arrives EARLY tomorrow.oo hot in the bedroom. Air conditioner will not run longer than a half hour before tripping the breaker. So with the door and livingroom windows open, and two fans aimed at us, we are settling to sleep (if sleep we can) in our recliners.See y’all again tomorrow. Stay safe. Remember, we love you.
