FOURTH OF JULY CHALK ART WALK

From “Max” Eberhard Eichner

I would like to make the suggestion for people in general on that day to be invited to “dress up” for this individual  or household distanced walk about. Since we can still “see” each other we can turn that into an artful, fun and playful “hug” using only our eyes! It would be fun and interesting to see people in creative outfits either inspired by current experience or just out to “wear” a plain “good ol’ time.” As part of my art, I plan to wear some of my big “masks” that day and maybe walk the neighborhood a little bit, to model “mask safety” and to keep the foot/bike traffic going, reminding people to not linger too long or bunch up…

In addition, my housemate is a cellist and ukulelist  etc. and plans, reservedly seated in the back of our display, to serenade/set a mood for the passers-by for parts of the day. If the weather gods have mercy on us Columbianers, and we all catch your enthusiasm, this is going to be a more then memorable Fourth.

[Thanks Eberhard! I think Zeke and I are likely to play a little music for passers-by on our own front porch as well. I love the thought of Playing Dress Up! And we can all show off our masks whether or not we show off our chalk art… Love/Fl!p]

STALKING FOLLOW-UP

My goal is to reduce fear while increasing alertness and information to base it on. The person who was suspected of stalking is in jail at least through Tuesday afternoon. The homeowner’s immediate neighbors have been watching over her. That’s something we all can do.

Here is the police report on the arrest (printed out just below as well):

If you want to know when the man leaves jail, here is a link where you can track jail releases: http://apps1.whatcomcounty.us/jaildata/releases.html

I have also learned that the Western Front newspaper will have an article  on this next week, and I will post that as well.

FREE HOSE

 A black 100′ foot hose is free and is on the corner of Lynn&Jefferson.  It does not have holes.  Too heavy for me to comfortably handle.

HOW TO HAVE A SAFER PANDEMIC MEMORIAL DAY

You shouldn’t gather in groups this weekend, but we know you probably will. So here’s some guidance from the biology professor whose advice for lowering coronavirus risk has reached millions.

ISLE AU HAUT LULLABYE

Bok Trickett Muir
I never learned to sail, but I spent many hours of my childhood with my family on a little wooden sailboat, including Memorial Days. This song resonates deeply.
