WELCOME TO SEPTEMBER.

Twitter said it best this morning.

Another month means it’s time to take a look at the last one, and there’s also an announcement at the end of today’s post so I guess I’ll get it started.

THE PRESENT PRESENTS some unique challenges.

I know the above sentence is an understatement, with coronavirus uncertainty and all of the other uncertain things in the world these days.

Today was the kind of news day which makes me breathe a sigh of relief I didn’t have to cover it, just because newsrooms were probably even busier than normal.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL MIGHT be cancelled, which seems par for the course in a totally crazy year.

I guess we’ll see, but, as I read the other day, I continue to root for a vaccine.

I think I’ll wait for the official announcements before I comment any more, but today’s news is disappointing.

I realize there are bigger fish to fry. I realize there are a lot more important, and a lot more serious, things going on in the world than whether football is played, but the prospect of a canceled season is disappointing nonetheless.


This post is a response to Sue’s prompt, which is, “totally.”

I’D WAITED MORE than 72 hours, and finally I couldn’t wait anymore.

I called yesterday, but voicemail answered.

It was full so I hung up and called again.

They answered and gave me the important information I’d waited for since last Sunday.

My second nasal swab test for COVID-19 was negative.

I’m 2-for-2, and I hope there are no more tests.
