People in Siouxland are like others and very much like doing things that seem normal again, or some facsimile of such a notion. Latham Park always has a fall art vendor day, Art in the Park, where various folk can sell their wares and others get to peruse and purchase in a pretty environment.

But thoughts about the virus wasn’t far from some people’s minds and others didn’t seem to mind or care. Which kind of makes returning to normal a mixed bag. Others who think nothing is going on can’t move on because some people wear masks reminding them, and those wearing masks are worried about their health and well being but find others don’t mind or seem to care. A classic Catch 22.

And who knows how long and how severe this aberration will continue. But it is nice there are events again for folk to get out to. So many have been cancelled until the following year and hopes the new normal will become normal.

    It’s good folks get out, it relieves ‘cabin fever’ 😉 Did you purchase anything you couldn’t live without ❓

      Will, There really isn’t anything anymore that I absolutely can not live without. Am actually trying to clear out closets and get rid of items I don’t really need anymore. Will I read that book a 4th time and do I listen to those music cd’s anymore? Mmmmmm. Maybe the local library collection department for its annual book sale. Those canna lillies are huuuuuuuggge. Have a nice weekend. jerry

        Ceilings and floors, ceilings and floors. One man or woman’s to another. That is to say though, and I should have mentioned earlier, there were a lot of nice art pieces, ceramics, photography, jewelry and paintings along with woodworks. jerry
