It’s Throwback Thursday here at the Acres, a nifty device to cover for the fact that Nothing is Happening in the Present, just the usual, dreary, day-to-day maintenance.

We will be retreating this Friday through Monday, camping at Harmonie SP–no cell service, internet, or cable. I need to do some hiking, stare into a campfire, and detox from the all-consuming TV-news. Reading this post from the 2013 government shut-down week-end, I felt the same way back then.

Olivia is going to join us on Sunday, and I’ll be in and out of town, so don’t worry that I will actually miss any breaking news. In fact don’t worry at all…

Peace.

The News from Sonnystone Acres

In case you didn’t know, I had a rough week, and so did the United States of America…  In an attempt to run to a spot of nature, I ran into a roadblock:  America is closed…   You can bet that the ass-hat congress is not missing a paycheck, though.

What to do?  We were within an hour of Music City, so we pressed on…

Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins…

veggies, veggies, veggies

And how about those mums?

Very lush, wouldn’t you agree?  And so was I after strolling Broadway for a few hours…

I’m back to reality, so I’m keeping the TV Off…
