We’ve been fortunate during most of this pandemic that we live in a rural area with lots of outdoor space we can enjoy without bumping into other humans. This last month of fires has been keeping us inside all of the time though and I’m starting to develop some serious cabin fever.

The good news is that spending so much time with Deanna is great. I’ve often joked that I don’t have much of a social life because, given the choice, I’d rather be with her than anyone else. I just like her that much more than I like you all. Sorry, not sorry.

Thank you, Deanna, for being such a great partner through all of this. Half a lifetime ago I was certain we’d be great together, through thick or thin, and this year, more than most, has been proof that I wasn’t wrong.
