What is that?
The air had a strange tint today, kinda yellow, and the sky was a color I've almost forgotten. In other words, the sun finally came back and damn welcome. We have lakes in the yard. My village has built a little playground down by the seawall. It opened today and found immediate favor with local people. I'll download more pix from the camera later.
We got notice this week that the census wants us to work the big count. The media are promoting the hiring for the census as a big boost for the unemployment situation in this country. Given what they pay and the duration of the work, it's more like a couple extra bucks for a little trip or a crowned tooth. I've learned of three people working for the census, all backed into a corner by circumstances. It won't be a career for anyone, just a gap-filler.
