Long Time Since….

February?! Six months since my last post! There’s just no excuse for it, NONE!

I really need to get serious about writing again. Like I was in college for term papers. I know there’s a method I could use, a date I could set, a time, to JUST DO IT! Like now!

In February I wrote that we (my wife and I) had tested negative for Covid. Shortly after getting tested, the vaccines became available and we were both vaccinated. The vaccines have contributed to the division of our country. Sad but true.

A little over half of the US population are fully vaccinated and I struggle to understand why so many Americans are choosing not to be. I hear numerous reasons: the vaccines are not fully approved, we don’t know the long-term effects, and a few reasons that are so far-fetched I’m not even going to list them.

I knew that a booster shot would probably be necessary. And, yes, I’ll get mine when it’s time. And I hope you’ll get your’s too.

There are many other “pandemics” creating division far outside the borders of our country. And I’m starting to see things unraveling. How long will it take before the whole Ball Of Yarn unravels?

I’ll try hard not to let The Unraveling unravel me. But I know we’re not in complete control and I have confidence that He knows what He’s doing.

I should at least offer an apology for not posting in such a long time, so consider this just that. This is a busy time for gardeners, garden writers, garden speakers, and bluegrass musicians. Which means I have less time for writing for fun, which means I’m making an excuse for why I’ve not posted in so long, which means I’m asking you to forgive me for not visiting all of your blogs.

(Thanks to Ginger, my iPhone, for helping make this excuse possible.)
