Saturday afternoon in the bunker


Elizabeth bought a flag. I like that we fly it near our Black Lives Matter window and our windows full of posters for Biden and other democratic candidates. She bought and installed a holder and takes it down every night as per flag etiquette. Us libtards can be patriotic.

I love our front yard. This is one of many milkweed plants there.

I’m proud of the pic above.

I don’t have too much to say today.

Playing at Wigmore Hall on 14 September – Susan Tomes

  1. Let me know how you like the Chick Corea book…I think he is one of the sages of this time. I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts.
