rainy night with Ann

I got a lot of work done in the past two days. I want to get more done this weekend. Our first June rain fell tonight.. The town storm siren blared, but the storm proved non-severe here.

I walked tonight in Green Park. I saw 11 species of bird. Yesterday I walked in Timbers Nature Preserve in Murphy, and got good photos of a Widow Skimmer and of an anole lizard.  June is a great wildlife month.  But I even like August, the "slow month." 

We watched the one-woman play "Ann" by and starring Holland Taylor. We liked it. I met Ann Richards once at a Dallas fund-raiser during her first run for governor. I liked meeting her, but I do not recall anything other than meeting her. It was the least interaction one can have when one meets someone.

The virus upticked here. I hope this means people will wear their masks.

Beatrice is doing well. Some of her fur has grown back in. After a long life of dry food, now she gets a can of wet food a day.

I solve puzzles and play blitz chess (mostly against bots) at My Puzzle rating is 1516. My blitz chess rating is 1392. I want each to e higher.
