CHALK PHOTO GLITCHES

Thank you all for sending & uploading photos. You may or may not be able to view the uploaded ones yet. Get that empty-looking map up and then find something else to do for 5 minutes while the map ruminates. Sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn’t. I’ve been trying to get all the photos linked, with various success. Jonny will be back in town tomorrow and we’ll see what we can figure out. (He’s wonderful!)

I’ve been thrilled looking at all the sweet photos everyone has emailed. Unfortunately, the volume of attachments crashed my email, so I’ve had most of this day as an “email vacation” complete with a nap! PogoZone has me back up and running as of half an hour ago, though I could use some knowledgeable advice sorting out the rubble. I’m on Apple Mail, on a MacBook Pro from 2015 and an older iPhone, and I’ve been told I’m a “Digital Hoarder.”  So it’s not the neighborhood’s fault!

If this is the biggest glitch for a first-time event, I am content, and I bet you’ll find a way to be patient as well. As near as I can tell we stayed safe in the pandemic and still connected with each other, and I couldn’t be more delighted!

Zeke and I took the car out and tried to drive down every block so we could see all your chalk, for a couple hours each day, yesterday and today. Wow! Our neighborhood gets wiggly around the edges, doesn’t it? And BEAUTIFUL! I had seen enough photos that often I’d see someone’s chalk and go, “OH! I’ve seen a photo of that one!” Such joy, such delight, such creativity… I love you all madly!

MORE PORCH CONCERTS?

I realized that we can have lots of Porch Concerts this summer. You could just take your instruments out and play on your porch. (Check with your neighbors, but if you can live with their lawnmower, I bet they can live with your music, especially if it’s acoustic.) Or, send me a post at least two or three days beforehand and I’ll run it in an Update. I can’t promise folks will come, but they might. It sure was cool to have, at last count, 22 concerts happening Saturday afternoon!

BABY POOL, HIGH CHAIR NEEDED

Surprise!  Daughter and family coming up to Bellingham, to support in-laws.  I’d like to borrow a little baby pool for my 14-month-old grandson.  Hoping for something relatively portable.  Also, high chair or ideally high-chair table attachment.  I need them July 13-23.  Thanks.

HOW COULD ANYONE EVER TELL YOU?

A deeper background on the story Libby tells about the song she wrote.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1m0FY88-wnQ

This is a story about how change really happened. I’m finding it really touching.

RADIO FREE FL!P: MY HEART KNOWS THE WAY TO YOUR DOOR

Betsy Rose is an old friend I haven’t seen in decades, and this is a song she wrote over half our lifetimes ago.  And it’s still true for both of us.
