Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day Ninety

The Los Gatos Farmers’ Market has “senior time” from 8-9am; we were there this morning during senior time to pick up our pre-ordered fish and see what else might look good – the answer was “strawberries, plums, apricots, tomatoes, and corn”. The answer nearly included cherries, but that farmer didn’t open until after 9, and we were long gone by then.

This afternoon, we indulged in a little culture and history, watching the National Theater’s broadcast of the Nottingham Playhouse’s production of The Madness of George III – it was excellent. I knew George III had suffered from mental illness after the Revolution, but I didn’t know the ramifications for English politics (I did some research after watching the play to find out more). It reminded me of the current situation in the US. The National Theatre’s stream is available through Wednesday, June 17th – I recommend watching if you can. We’ll also probably watch The Madness of King George sometime since it’s free on Amazon Prime.

There doesn’t seem to be any danger of running out of things to watch!
