AM- woke up a little after 6am (PDT) to hazy blue skies, wind out of the north (to bring the smoke back), 68 (F)degrees, and MEDium pollen. Husb and Canoe were up several times in the night. It feels like there is some sort of a *change* in the wind….heading into fall. The temp is forecast in the 100s today, but then cooling down into the 80s and then the 70s over the next 10 days…

Also, I’ll be going to back down to Portland the day after Labor Day (Mon) to help start granddaughter to middle school!!!!

He died 10 years ago…

Noonish- stepson says he was verbally assaulted by a customer last night in the drive thru where he works as a barista, so he is pretty traumatized and won’t be mowing this week. We’ve told him to come over and debrief with us, so he’s got support. Poor kid….why do people have to be such assholes to service providersπŸ˜–

"Every world spins in pain. If there is any kind of supreme being... it is up to all of us to become his moral superior. Vetinari/Pratchett"
Why do people have to hb such assholes? Not just to services providers.
Who ever did that to him was probably frustrated with himself and aspects of his/her own life and took it out on your stepson because he can't really do anything in return.
That's the way the world works I guess.

I hope he'll be okay.
