Between the Storms


What I saw on my computer screen.


What it looked like from my front stoop.









I've only cowered in the basement once, so far. Nothing materialized except some water seeping under the basement wall. It rainith. A lot. we have managed to duck out between the storms. Everything is green, moist, singing, blooming . . . in such a rush.

Nooooo! Not the Daffodils!
















Who'd a thunk it?


P.S. After 2 weeks it's good to be outside. One nasty virus. Felled us both. Whew.

God Bless America



It's been a long ten years. So much is owed to the brave men who killed the man responsible for the 9/11 strikes on America.

"U.S. forces were led to the fortress-like three-story building after more than four years tracking one of bin Laden's most trusted couriers, whom U.S. officials said was identified by men captured after the September 11, 2001 attacks."

That man who identified the courier was water-boarded at Gitmo.
Update: There is disagreement about where this person was interrogated. It may have been in an over-seas facility. None of this is pretty. But neither were the deaths of 3 thousand innocent Americans.
