    The Cook County (Illinois) highway department came along and patched a relatively small section of the "main drag" in my small suburb. It took a year of work to get them out here. They only patched the part that was worst. There are other areas that they must have deemed not as bad. Would it have been that difficult to make the project longer and patch the entire stretch between the two traffic lights? Especially this summer, when traffic along that stretch is way down because of the pandemic.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    That sounds like road repair projects around here.

    Death thought about it.

    The sky was hazy today in Chicago from the fires on the west coast. I can't imagine how bad the air is there. Sending caring thoughts to my PT friends.

    So sad and scary for everyone out there. At least more people have masks on hand these days, a small blessing in a scary situation.

    Smoke from the wildfires almost cleared up in Vancouver B.C. It was terrible for a week or more. Hurray 🙂

    Good news that the smoke is clearing up there, mon! How are things now?

    We're sending along loads of loving good wishes and prayers and energies that these fires will be out soon.
