Thank You Notes

Under normal circumstances, it would be safe to say that these are very uncertain times in the life of our country. But these are not normal circumstances.

I Don’t Know…

I've had a pretty good streak going. I've posted something every day so far in 2020. And I really didn't want to end the streak. So here's a post.
