A bro’s birthday yesterday brought a nice conversation with him. He was in a particularly good mood, as he’d just heard the Portland mayor tell off POTUS. Good to know he’s in good spirits.

Busy correcting piles of papers this morning, and need to get back to it…almost 50% done with the term today.

Stephen contacted me last wk with news of a bike trade-in at his dealership in VA, so we made a trip up to VA for a quick visit. Only possible in these remote times, of course, as i’ll teach this morning, then go test-drive, then come back to their house to teach an afternoon class…then back to Gvl.

Joe/Cristin/Jackson on another road-trip, which is great. They’re heading to Michigan, to his step-sister’s in-laws place outside of Chicago; and broke up the drive with a night’s camping at a KOA in western PA.

looking for wildlife
lovin’ the great outdoors
happy guy

After a week in MI, they’ll head out to S Dakota, to Cristin’s sis & family, for another week. Glad they’re getting away, and so very much hoping that by the time they get back to NY, he’s getting some job calls…
