It would be nice to be down on the ocean now. Find some secluded section of beach sans "tourists covered in oil" and just enjoy watching the waves come in.

But no. I'm up here on the mountain. It's hotter than hell, and the humidity is appalling. I went out this morning just as the sun came over the mountain tops and did my half hour work stint in the meadow, cutting weeds with a sling. I have adopted that as part of my new daily procedure. Beats trying to work out on the elliptical every day.
I also picked my first red , ripe tomato from our garden. But I had let it sit on the ground, and when I picked it, the whole bottom was rotten. I tried to cut it in half and eat the top part, but it tasted nasty. So I cut the upper half into small sections and the chickens ate it. I guess we are bound to learn some lessons this way, but next year we will know better.
While I am writing this, I am also listening to the scanner. Our Sheriff's Department is having a hard time. When there is a serious accident, they are supposed to bring in a State Trooper to do the accident report. Usually there is one trooper in our three county area at any given time. But not today. Some guy on a motorcycle just got nailed by a truck. No trooper en route because many of the troopers have been withdrawn from the field to handle the Black Lives Matter circus in Atlanta.

Here are some interesting statistics on crime in America. I doubt Jerry Brown and his Carnival of Clowns will have much impact on these issues.
