Yesterday was quite a day. I woke up to the whole house shaking and the crash of a large bathroom mirror into a million pieces. The earthquake, centered just a few miles from my house, was a 5.7 and some of the aftershocks were almost as bad. No injuries and other than the loss of the mirror and a few precious keepsake figurines I and my family are fine. Of course we were already following the Covid-19 guidelines and staying away from people. Then last night a son-in-law's father passed away. Over the years he and his wife had become not only our daughter's in-laws, but dear friends of our own.

After spending the day working on a frustrating 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle and cringing over an endless number of aftershocks, there was one bright spot in the day, a long telephone call with my brother. It was his birthday.
