Light at the end of the tunnel and a new story –

With easings on the mask requirements, thanks to more and more folks getting vaccinated and lessened cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, there is finally a light at the end of this very long tunnel – it’s nice to see folks’ smiles again.

Meanwhile, a new story today – little longer one this time around. Hope you enjoy –

New story and light at the end of the Covid tunnel

Masks for those vaccinated are no longer mandatory, according to the CDC, and many states, including ours, have set dates for “reopening.” I like seeing that light at the end of this very long tunnel – though one always fears it’s on the front of a train. 😉

Meanwhile, after a quite a drought, I had a new story go up today. Hope you enjoy –
