Sometimes (all the time?) I feel like a lump on a log that does nothing but lie in bed all day. I do take long naps, and sometimes I retire to my bed more than once during the day. But that’s one of the reasons I like blogging. Hey, I wasn’t¬†completely¬†indolent!

Also, an anecdote: Abe was chasing Mary around pretending to steal her flower. Mary screamed, “Nooooo! DON’T!!! I’m so special to God!!!”

Picnic with Abe at a park Qualtrics bought and then never used. No one ever uses it, so we had it all to ourselves.

The park is right by some river. I have no idea what the river is though.
