A hip bursitis flare up today is a souvenir of standing and bending to hold onto that machine as it worked yesterday, but I'm still so pleased to have NOT had to call a plumber that I can live with the Ibuprofen.

Over on that "bacon gizmo" thread Leeneia asked a question about Texas kolaches that I answered with enough detail that it has me thinking I'd like to take a road trip. Short, but out, and around. I don't know if I'd want to take the dogs along, and there are no other passengers who could go. But maybe. Patty Clink and I have talked about places she traveled and she has stayed at Cleburne State Park, an hour's drive from here. It's lovely weather, maybe a trip there with the camera to get fall colors is in order.

I am being cautious as far as human contact for the next couple of weeks. On Tuesday that I got an SOS call from a friend who totalled his car in the town south of me and needed a ride home to the town west of me. I set up the passenger-side seat in the third row of seats in my fairly-large SUV so there was more than six feet between us and we wore masks and didn't talk much. The windows were partly open. (I also gave him extra masks and told him to discard the one he'd been wearing when I saw him last week because it wobbles up and down too much with his beard.) I've been reading that passengers on airplanes are generally doing okay as far as staying healthy as long as the air is exchanged and the masks are worn and hopefully we weren't much different (neither of us has an indication that we might be ill, but our bubbles did overlap in a big way). I realized that his knowing he could call here for help was incredibly important to him, and I wonder if he realizes that we were literally risking our lives to make that drive?

Anyway, I'm staying busy around here. Everyone stay safe and I'll be interested to read how you plan to navigate the upcoming US holiday.
