Who knew this March 8th ritual would be our last social gathering for…indefinitely. This photo shows us in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Montrose, Colorado. This ceremony is called the rite of election. The best I can understand it is we, the body, are electing for Don, after all his preparations, to be welcomed into the Catholic Church.
Don is all in black to my right. Bishop Stephen Berg is next to Don and then my girlfriend Erin. Don asked Erin and me to be his sponsors in his upcoming Catholic confirmation. Deacon Lloyd Hawes is on the end by me. Lloyd has been meeting with Don for many months discussing the theology, history and teachings of the Catholic Church. Erin and I are cradle Catholics and clueless to all of this.
This cheese bread, from our local Get Some Groceries, is a delightful indulgence
Enjoying a healthy, tasty breakfast
Feeling good about supporting one of our small, local businesses
When I saw our library closed – this became a reality for me
Was on my way to the newspaper office…
I was in the post office when Ben, our Lake City activities director, delivered these Easter eggs – they were to be given away on the ski slope but since we can no longer gather on the ski hill…

Gotta keep laughing…
Nature clears my mind – makes me feel more well balanced, peaceful and creative.
From childhood onward, walking the dogs in green spaces has always been an essential part of my daily routine. This helps me cope.
How are you coping?
