Well, I'm half way through my 3 day work week. I can't say business is slow, the store is seeing a lot of foot traffic, though flooring sales appear to be on the ebb, more so than usual. I think the main reason for this is that we no longer have an Idiot Jerk constantly saying Covid is going way, and that it will be gone soon. Losing the election seems to have temporarily put a cork in that blowhole through which he constantly regurgitates lies. Now, more people seem to be wearing masks in the store, though the number of those emblazoned with his name has dropped to zero. I guess most don't want to be associated with a loser.
According to Accuweather, temps are supposed to continue their downward slide over the next 2 weeks. In spite of what some may think this portends, we had similar temperature patterns last year and ended up with one of the warmest winters on record. Here in Central PA we had no snow to speak of, which was disappointing for the dogs, not that they remember. For them, every snow is a brand new day.
The Body in the Loch is coming along nicely. I have over 56,000 words, which is nice. I suspect that sometime in the the spring readers will get to visit Dun Adair, and Glenn Adair, and Adairton. If you say them aloud, make sure you roll your Scottish 'r's. And since there is a Loch, I thought I post this little ditty from the Foo Fighters called Dirty Water.
