5. Thanks! I can probably convince my dog to go out again by then...

And it's 34 here, the ground is getting crunchy. We've had nothing but rain for what seems like almost daily - and that includes the summer. But I shouldn't complain, at least it's not winter when both my dog and I hate going out at all.

And "my" group (it's actually 2 groups, 1 discussion and 1 literature that each met twice a week) has yet to reopen because of the pandemic. They were held in a treatment center (halfway house) so there are residents - our last meeting there was a 1 year celebration on March 16, 2020 and we all thought it would be a few weeks, tops. *sigh*

One of our "regulars" turned me on to another group which meets 3 times a week, all literature meetings. I go to 2 out of the 3 and was "elected" secretary, but in recent weeks both the treasurer and the GSR elected at the same time have dropped out, so attendance is tough. So I go to the district meetings since I was GSR for "my" group for years. We had great attendance, but they were mostly "beginners" which meant there was a lot of turnover, so it was my chance to step up. And I don't know what's wrong with the current group, but we had a new join last week who came back and had made it 8 days, so that's why I keep coming back...

And best of luck to your SIL - same thing with our "new join" who also didn't wait too long. And he's also awfully young, so that's in his favor. This pandemic has been tough on the program, virtual meetings didn't work for a lot of people so I'm glad that more meetings are finally being held again.
