Jerry’s Jottings 6-17-2020

Warm again with storms in the forecast. The Summer Solstice starts this Saturday June 20 at 4:43 pm. Days will shorten slowly, a couple minutes each day and the conversation will turn how hot it is to how cold it is. Enjoy it all. We have a lot of good days left. 

We we’re able to get control of our garden this past weekend. Lots of hoeing, added a few trellises for the beans and cucumbers and the rest is out of our hands. The usage of the community gardens is at a record level with new ones added this year. I dabble with one half of a garden which seems about the right size for us. It’s so nice to have a fresh tomato when you want.  I do use the farmers market for the verity of vegetables and the baked goods. Bread and the occasional caramel roll are strong attractions for me. 

Actions and the reactions are beyond control and our society needs to step back. All lives matter. We are all different and we are all in this together. We may never be back slapping buddies but we should be able to talk about our differences when they exist. I have a  neighbor who is a trucker but we get along. The house, next to us, has had several different occupants so that could be my problem. Point is, we are all different living together. I have a church on the other side of our home. We are different but tolerable of our difference. And no, I have nothing against truckers. Someday, soon, I will share my thoughts on living next to church’s for well over filthy years. 

Let’s get along.

I do really feel bad for the Class of 2020. People say your senior year flies…

I just didn’t realize it would Zoom!

Have a good week!
