Jerry’s Jotings 6-10-2020

Things are loosening up. The Governor’s opening up of restaurants, bars and other public businesses has helped one’s outlook on life. Being able to go to the hairdressers was met with jubilation, A new woman came home last Thursday evening after loosing ten pounds of hair but gaining a fresh, new outlook on life. The color matched what she had in her mind and all was good. The change was complete and it even made me less annoying and more tolerable. Somewhat. I guess you can buy happiness. 

The hot windy weekend sapped me and hindered most efforts of progress. A few things were accomplished but it was done in short spurts.

Our weather has the promise of rain with an inch or more, damage free this time, unlike last Thursday night’s high winds with wide spread damage to trees and buildings. 

I’m a little shy about jumping right back into public gatherings and avoid most yet. I’m no expert on the pandemic but I would like things to move slowly in the transition. The situation has been postponing the possibility of hip surgery. It was pushed  to July and now it will be later, I’m hoping by August or September. Actually if I’m hoping, let’s go for this month, June .

Stay safe, shop local, and enjoy the family.

At a girl’s college dormitory, dates were permitted only on Saturday night. One young man showed up on a Tuesday evening, explaining to an older woman in the lobby of the dorm that it was imperative he see a certain young lady immediately.

“I want to surprise her. You see, I’m her brother.”

“Oh, she’ll be surprised all right,” said the woman. “But think of how surprised I am, I’m her mother!”
