One of my cousin's died this week. Dean was 62 and on my Mother's side of the family. I wasn't close with him, but still feel the loss of a younger cousin. Two of my cousins are now gone from that side of the family, Linda last January and now Dean. The funeral is today, my other baby brother will go to the visitation before the funeral and my parents are going to the funeral. I will watch the funeral online.
Yesterday were received news that an old friend died, Alicia was 82 years old and died from complications of Covid. We are sad for her husband who survived Covid but has Parkinsons.
My other baby brother and she who sees robins first got their first vaccinations yesterday. Steve and Jo our next door neighbors got theirs too...so I see some visiting in our future in the Spring!
I had a whole bunch of stops to make in town yesterday. Post Office, bank, three grocery store pickups and a stop by the meat market...and we recycled! I even managed to snare some Lysol Wipes...but they were out of Artisan Bread....so it was mostly a success.
I finally took a photo of the mural in town...note the Christmas Tree is upright. they want you to shop downtown year round! I am sure bikes are not allowed on the sidewalk and there used to be signs that said "No Loitering"...and the mural looks like it has a lot of loitering going on.
For the record, the gal in the Post Office had her mask hanging off one ear while assisting another customer and when she saw me she smiled and put on her mask properly. So I must be part of the elite mask police.
Also for the record gasoline went up another 20 cents a gallon, that makes a 70 cent increase since the election. Gas is now $2.69 per gallon in town.
