Grandson David brought me a photo taken behind the counter at Burger King. Although they were not allowed to have customers in the dining room, they were preparing to reopen in the future. I laughed that David said they had installed a spit guard. Thankfully, that was relaxed talk at home. A bit later he referred to it as a sneeze guard. I was glad he had more refined words for the new screen.
On David’s day off, he and John repaired the fence. It took hours to dig out the old concrete and set up the new post. Son John $pencer replaced one several weeks ago. As John observed, the fence is old, and he foresees having to replace all the rotting posts.
There are many horse chestnut trees lining Jonathan Creek. One was just upstream from our usual viewing point, and I wanted to see a bloom close up. It was beautiful, much more intricate than I thought it would be. John was my assistant, holding the branch steady in gusty breezes. Spring is really here, despite freezing temperatures overnight.
