Today Bae got fixated on a groundhog who has taken residence under our deck. Although I haven't seen more than one, Bae is convinced that there are more, a whole family. She was so tickled that she took several pictures and posted them on FB. She's also convinced that is is a female and she … Continue reading A Productive COVID or Is It?
Afihyia Pa o! Afihyia Pa!
There is an emoji on my phone that has emoji Kuukua holding her nose from the stench of the thrash that is 2019.

I've written several variations of #4thessay but somehow this one feels right to outdoor.
