Hope seen yesterday.

Yesterday I was out on a very strenuous and technical hike. It became obvious that many people had seriously underestimated the challenged and were very under prepared in many ways. Some folks were in real distress.

It was heartening to see other people change their plans and assist these folks from precarious situations.

Teamwork makes the dreamwork.

I saw hope. It was a great change.

Read Today. You are correct sir.

Holding Back the inner Groucho

I have always been a huge admirer of Groucho Marx. That said, the other day I was purchasing some ice cream at a shop where you choose the flavor and they pack it for you. At that time they told me they were out of Pint size containers and would use a quart size and fill it up half-way. I said fine.

At the cash register I asked, in a serious voice, whether they were charging me for the custom ice cream shop "air" that filled the half filled quart container (I have no eyebrows to waggle). They were shocked, I started laughing, and they did as well.

Upon departure I realized, perhaps, someone might have been a "Ken" to them about this in the past. I hope not.

Whatever the case may be, MAGA Kens or Karens will not steal my inner Groucho. Won't happen.

Sometimes when I read that when people are asked if they could have one Superpower
