What a little thing
To remember for years-

I don't have much to say about Monday except that it was a Monday. The temperature dropped overnight, thought not as much as we were warned it might, so I took a morning walk to the Pokemon gym to do a raid and an early evening one with Paul to see the twilight sky and birds (and one bunny).

We saw many mallards and a few American black ducks at the C&O Canal last weekend:
