Patreon Posts for June

By , June 23, 2019

So much going on these days, so little connectivity for sharing it!

Last weekend, we recorded a new A Place at the Table episode for June, to share with upper tier Patreon Patrons. We had fun! We debuted new theme music for the show, courtesy of our musician neighbors, discussed the Summer Solstice. We talked about recent social events, and how we deal with and take advantage of long daylight hours. We also anticipated an upcoming visit from my brother and sister-in-law, Dave and Anke. Finally, Aly saw a snipe recently, so we discussed snipe hunts. And the “Inevitable Sleep Vortex” . . . .
