    Good Opening Day so far.. I found a way to relax a little better at the gym(sure is tough breathing into your mask while working out. ). Off to supermarket shopping later.

    Today was a great day for archery, as it was not quite so hot. One of the regulars brought his 12-year-old son with him. Archery kids are terrific. They tend to be polite and very able to converse with adults. This young boy, Dean, was no exception. We had a delightful chat and he even helped me bring my target in, when I finished shooting.

    Yes, but did he hold still when you put the apple on his head.?

    It's healthy for kids around that age to converse with adults.

    The Soap & Suds is "closed until further notice". Well, shoot. Hafta start going to the Laundromat on Third from now on. A buck & a quarter more if I go solo, but I reckon I'll go when Kim goes and we'll split the cost. First-world problems can be a pain sometimes.

    The last couple of days have been busy. My mom’s power went out on Tuesday & was still out Wednesday morning. Not knowing how long it old be out, I booked a handicap-accessible hotel room here on Staten Island. The room was fine, but the hotel doesn’t have an on-site restaurant, so I bought in meals for us to have together.

    Thankfully, the power came back within the day so I have taken her back home. I’m home myself now & quite tired.

    I can’t tell you how much I want to shoot some arrows!

    Today is not too good. My years of sailing are catching up with me. Today I saw an Oncologist and we've scheduled surgery for next Friday to work on the melanoma on my back and see if it got into any of my lymph nodes. What-the-hell, I'm 86 so it's about time that something showed it's ugly head. :)

    Could be worse... I just drug up. Headed for the wilderness, can"t live with a crazy woman no more. I could do nothing right. So it was in my best interest to GTFO, excuse my French.

    I will still be around. I did get one last shower and shave in, most of my clothes are clean, and I have a little money in the bank. All is good.

    Well, power is on as of last night having lost it on Tuesday afternoon. I have a small portable generator, so it wasn't a total loss. But I don't think I've ever been so grateful for air conditioning. but doubly grateful for the fact that this isn't winter

    Thanks, Sara. It was definitely a new experience, but definitely not that bad after all. At the very least, it forced me to do some reading. And, it wasn't so horrible to go to bed with the sun and get more sleep than usual.

    I'm now about 60% of the way through the first Harry Potter book in Dutch. Beyond the language learning, it's interesting to see what they translated/didn't translate/changed slightly. For example, some of the names were changed to their Dutch equivalent, some weren't changed, a name or two is just totally different. The feasts now contain some Dutch food items, etc.
