Back from WY

My daughter tries to pick out songs about the states we are traveling through on our way to and from Wyoming. There is a favorite Wyoming song of mine by John Denver.

Now half my children live or are in school in Wyoming. I can see the attraction. It is beautiful out there. I think the response to life and issues is more reasonable in Wyoming than in most other places, including SC.

The one exception seems almost universal in these states we travelled through: the Church is militantly afraid of covid-19 and the Bishops are convinced is their job to protect what they view as their "stupid and incompetent" flock.

I am pretty sick of the fear. If Christ conquered the world why are we running scared?

Back to Wyoming, I wish I was. I didn't get to go backpacking this time - this stay was short. But we did a 3 mile hike to some falls. Sinks Canyon - gorgeous!

Glad to be home. Lots to do here. I still am finishing some house maintenance/improvements and note that we do not yet have enough wood split to get through the winter.

We have had our share of corn, cucumbers and tomatoes. We have 1 (one) cantaloupe. Maybe more will come. The weather has been highly unusual. We are getting rain, but it is 100 degrees or so almost every day.

Okay. That's the update.

Oremus pro invicem!
