Pandemic Journal, Day 720

We had a quiet day today, starting, as usual, with a trip to the Farmers’ Market and a walk through Los Gatos. After that, Diane led a meeting of the Shir Hadash Book Group (on Zoom) and I talked about the Ritual Committee at the New Member Orientation session (in person!).

Our travel agent sent us the proposal for his reworked 3-week river trip on the Rhine, Moselle, and Main rivers next fall, changing from three cruise segments on AmaWaterways to two segments on Uniworld, with two more days aboard ship. He promised a “slightly lower” price and delivered – we’ll save two full dollars!

One of my Facebook friends asked me when I was going to stop the “Pandemic Journal” and my thoughts immediately turned to Mike Angelo’s conversation with Victor Pope in Mad Magazine’s “The Agony and The Agony” from 1966.

I had a subscription to Mad back then, but I didn’t bring those copies with me to California. I was pleased to find the whole issue online; not all of the humor aged well, but a surprising amount did.
