I’m afraid I didn’t get the Pearl for today done…. again. I’m having too much fun playing in the BBR & listening to esoteric music. Also, it’s payday, for me & the rest of the retired seniors from state service, & I need a LOT of supplies, having spent the last 10 days sans cash.

I guess, these days, I should say, what I do here WHEN I do it. In any case, please accept this offering, & have some patience with me…. I’m still pretty crazy, in the final analysis, & need some slack. If that’s not possible, oh, well…. So be it. I’ll be back as soon as I can find the wherewithal… Until then, be well, & happy as you may be….
Take care, & stay strange…. it may not seem like it, but, it really does keep the worst of it all at bay….
