And so the weekend begins. Storm clouds are settling over some parts of the nation. Yesterday, here in lovely Central PA, we had showers, drizzles, and heavy bands of rain throughout the day. I had planned on relocating the leaves in my backyard to the other side of the fence. I do this every year, rather than drag them down to the curb for the street sweeper. I like to recycle the nutrients which go into the growing of leaves back into the ground from which they came.
I got a phone call from one of my Navy friends yesterday. It's been many years. He was very excited. Originally from Virginia, he has since relocated to North Carolina, and lives in a condo on an island. He has picked up that southern drawl. His wife passed away a number of years ago. One of his sons has developmental issues. I feel bad for him, that's such a chore for aging parents. A Zoom call is scheduled for November 19. Hopefully he and a number of my other Navy friends will be there. Here's a dark picture I took of him at a radar console while on watch. You can see the outline of the the Tonkin Gulf of Vietnam on the console screen. You might want to click on it to make it bigger.
