  1. Mike, thank-you for the kind words. I was angry when I wrote it, or tired, or still in grip of the fog that has come with the pandemic. Not sure what come with the dawn we are all hoping for, I just know that we can’t go back to the way things were. That wasn’t normal.

  2. Hi, DRO&I: Your zebra story reminded me of the Tamworth Two. You’ve probably heard about them. They were a couple of pigs, later nicknamed Butch & Sundance, who escaped “while being unloaded from a lorry at an abattoir” and went on the run for a week in England in 1998. The BBC made a movie about them in 2003. The pigs chosen to play Butch & Sundance were, of course, much better looking than the real-life ones. Apparently, Butch died of old age in 2010. Sundance has arthritis and is writing an autobiography. (Okay, I made that last bit up, but the rest is all true.) Here’s a link, if you don’t believe me: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamworth_Two

  3. DRO&I: I started keeping a list of books read when I was old enough to steal a pencil. I’m up to 9,018 books. The first book I completed was a Janet and John book. (“See the boats. Look, John. See the boats.”) The last book I read was “Citizen: An American Lyric” by Claudia Rankine. (“Words work as release – well-oiled doors opening and closing between intention and gesture.”) I was (and am) the bookworm’s bookworm. (The worms would crowd around a book and say: “This one’s ours. Leave us alone!”) It used to annoy the hell out of one of my girlfriend’s when I’d read a book at a nightclub table instead of talking to her friends or dancing; ditto at her parents’. (I did dance, though, with all the grace of Johnny Rotten.) Rude, I know. But a good book is a good book. I walk down the street reading books. This is now normal behaviour because every other fucker is reading something on a phone. I don’t read while driving. But then again, I never drive.

  4. DRO&I: hey, why not apply for Canadian citizenship? Go for it! You get shrooms and cannabis. You are welcome.

    Catalina: you got it on the metric conversion. ❤
