Oh, and I took another ride in Burgundy yesterday. I was going to use Monday as a rest day, but ended getting in a 12 mile ride.
Today is my first full day back on the job. We'll see how it goes. I'm not exactly excited.
As for the Idiot Jerk in the White House... well, supposedly he's now taking hydroxicholoroquine, not because he has any symptoms of Covid - 19; rather he's using the drug as a preventative. If he wants to get his saggy ass re-elected, he needs the economy needs to be as blustery as he is and that isn't going to happen if people don't go back to work. There are those, however, who do have health concerns - they don't want to catch the virus and so they're a little slow at jumping back into the work force. In his addled brain, the best way to sooth their fears is to take a preventative med, something that's going to keep you from getting the virus. That's right, if you take hydroxichloroquine you won't get sick, of course you might die of a heart attack, but do you think he really cares? Nope. The fool is going to kill off his base.
And, finally, "The Body in the Loch" is picking up steam. Can we have a little mood music, please?
A nice bit takes place in an abandoned abbey, and the Highlands, and a place called The Slaughtered Lamb. Someone will yell "let loose the hounds!" No snakes, though there is a castle. For those interested, the first Chapter in the next book has a title and more than the first words have been written. Here is the chapter title and the first sentence:
In Dun Adair
"Another cup of tea, dear?"
'Dun' is Scottish (Gaelic) for castle / fort. Since the mystery takes place in and around the Adair castle in Scotland, I thought that proper. Say it softly, and don't forget to roll the r.
