The Week In Seven Photos

With the general feeling for the week best described by the following photo, I wasn’t sure how I was going to come up with any humorous insights or highlights for the week.

The Week In Seven Photos

It’s been a week of revelations, since childhood I’ve always wanted a super power and was so happy to discover after I voted that I’ve had a super power all along.

The Week In Seven Photos

I went old school this week listening to albums (ok, vinyl for some generations) on the new turntable, after I recently discovered sometime over the decades the old one gave up hope of ever being played again, and I’m amazed at how much I had forgotten about the experience.  It was shocking to discover after…

Drive-Thru Farmers Market

Self-Isolation Trend #11 It’s farmers market season in Michigan and, along with everyone else, they have tried to implement policies to keep everyone as safe as possible and one of the early trends at my favorite market is the creation of a drive-thru farmers market.  I actually was not aware they were opening on time…

Who’s In Your Bubble???

Self-Isolation Trend #9 As countries slowly begin the transition of easing the shutdown restrictions, a new trend being considered in the early days of being let out of our homes is to only expand our “social bubble” to ten people.  As someone who has many bubble photos with the possible captions of “No issues today:…

Local Watering Hole

Self-Isolation Trend #8 With the bars and restaurants closed during the shutdown, a new trend for many is being forced to enjoy happy hour, or for some of us the celebration of It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere, at home.  Alcohol sales at grocery stores are up compared to last year as people are either stocking up on booze…
