    I’ve missed you; I completely share your feelings and opinions on the stupidity in our world; I need the insanity that your kitchen updates somehow makes things easier; I’m so grateful for knowing you and the enjoyment of your blog. Thank you.

    I have been thinking about you and hoping you, Paul, and cat babies are doing well. I miss your sense of humor, your fluff balls, and your kitchen. But I can no longer deal with the endless pop ups on your blog. so I must unsubscribe. I am sad about this. You, I’m sure, are not bothered in the least. I’ll drop back in occasionally to see how you’re doing (I really do care). Wash your hands. Snuggle fur. Find another fabulous mirror. Stay well and thank you for your POV.

    I was worried about you, but I should have known you’d be doing GOOD reading. Agreed about The Band Played On, plan to read Polio, but I read or re-read books called “Pandemic,” “The Stand,” “The End of October” and something else about ebola. Fine fiction all.

    I just checked here yesterday because I wondered if I’d missed a post or 20! It’s good to know you’re well and that your family is surviving during this pandemic. As an older woman of color, I appreciate your words and your thoughtfulness regarding where we are as a nation. As another commented earlier, you’ll probably have some lost of followers because of speaking your truth, I will continue to read your blog, support your love for GFT, and most importantly your, to paraphrase Maya Angelo, desire to know better and do better! Be well and keep writing! xo

    Read a new book. And because (as my wife points out) your head space seems to be very similar to my head space. You might enjoy as well. Lulu Miller’s “Why Fish Don’t Exist” . Might be a little different than the books you usually mention, but I still think you might get something out of it. Or a lot out of it.

    Thank you for this post! I agree wholeheartedly and really appreciate the humorous delivery. Occasional laughter and music are the only things keeping me sane. I would love to see the kitchen update and maybe some kittens? Any cat would do, actually.

    Thank you, thank you. You voiced what I was thinking, what I have been thinking, including the dream sequence! I am glad that someone who has a talent that I love also has the honestly and morality that I love too. No complaints here. Now go enjoy those strawberries before I come through the screen and steal them!

    Thank you for throwing caution to the wind. It’s incredible how you are able to weave levity into soul crushing realities–what a precious gift you have. Sorry to hear Paul can’t work from home–I hope you/your family stay safe/healthy. “Stitch a new garment”… I vote for a rainbow-colored, super power cape made of fake fur with french terry lining…

    So glad for this post of yours specifically. Activism and DOING SOMETHING is necessary. Empathy and common decency and love for fellow man are crucial. Gardening has been therapeutic and necessary for my mental health, and it made me feel like I was helping in some small way to share my produce and my hens’ eggs with people. My Master Gardening group has been working in the closed high schools’ raised garden beds and donating all the produce to the local food pantries. There has been so much weirdness and heartache and uncertainty, but all these things have created a strong clarion call that we must do better; we must do more. Take care.

    Drugs? Oh, I thought I was in The Twighlight Zone. Make it stop! I am trying to open a brand new preschool. I did get to adopt an awesome dog who is great company. But really, income would be pretty sweet at this point. Sigh.

    Thank you for sharing what so many of us are feeling. I feel as though I were in some alternate universe or in the Twilight Zone. Please everyone VOTE this November – wear a mask and a full body biohazard suit but VOTE!!!!!!
