2020 has been a strange year...

 2020 has been a strange year for many if not all of us.  Sheltering in place, self-quarantined and self-isolated for the past nine months and having a year's worth of activities canceled or postponed has been a lot to adjust to for me.  My memorial project at Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland has been put on hold, several excursions to places and people across the United States have been postponed until 2021, and fortunately for me, being in the high-risk group for Covid-19, I have managed to avoid infection (so far).  2020 has been a strange year.

I have however used some of the time being home for good use.  I have inventoried collections, tried to "downsize" without success, acquired a wonderful example of a fifty year old dentist chair to add to my collection (that I am supposed to be making smaller, not bigger), and I've been able to drive my 1959 Edsel Ranger two-door sedan at least once-a-week while social distancing.  

I have been memorialized in an engraving as well and I am very happy with the tribute work of art that I received in 2020.  My artist did a wonderful job creating artwork that describes me in steel and I am grateful for the thought and work involved in this tribute piece.  2020 has had its moments of positive and satisfying memorable occasions as well.  

It's soon to be 2021.  We've had a Presidential election this year and an administration change on the horizon.  I'm now in my eighth decade on this planet and the best is yet to come.

Be safe out there.
