At Last

I don’t know how safe it was(we can now go out) but Maurice and I met a friend about half way between our places. We all wore masks. She rode a bike, Maurice walked to our meeting place and I took a bus. It was a gorgeous day and it was so nice to get out. The Seine looked pretty and calm on the way. I’ve heard it’s hot when you are up under the roof but I liked this window. Inside the bus. As you can see, the driver is isolated from the rest of us. Masks are mandatory too. I ...

Produce

My trip to the Saturday market in Saint-Aignan was a success. All the usual vendors were there, spaced out a little more than usual in their new temporary (we'll see about that) location. I parked the car and went to my bank's ATM for some cash, all decked out in my mask and gloves. I had to take the gloves off to grab the cash and receipt, so I went back to the car and sanitized my hands with gel hydroalcoolique. Ken's planning to make carrot top pesto with those carrot greens. The strawberri...
