      The rioting in major cities across  the U.S. has spread to The Villages, Florida, a retirement community of 100,000. Looters in Florida’s friendliest hometown have especially broken into stores that sell items like laxatives, vitamins, hearing aids, reading glasses, energy drinks and surgical stockings. The thugs were easily caught and arrested since they were using their walkers and golf carts to flee. The protests have been limited to the evening hours because most of the lawbreakers either had doctor’s appointments during the day or rioting would have interfered with their naps. 
      The marches didn’t last that long because many of the demonstrators had to get home to pee. In many cases, the demonstrators simply forgot why they were even there. 
Officials considered a curfew starting at 9 p.m. But since that’s the time when most of the residents go to bed anyway, it was decided that it wasn’t needed. 
      Community leaders concluded that part of the problem was that residents were restless because they had too much time on their hands since the recreation centers, pools, theaters, boutique stores and especially the bars were closed due to the corona virus. 
      Community officials wanted to form a committee to look further into the problem, but the next day no one could remember why they needed a committee.

That’s me all over. By the way, I haven’t given up on my banana tree. The first one kind of rotted away, but it’s hard to keep an expert horticulturist down. It probably was that runt banana I planted. This one will grow for sure.

    You are not alone, Buddy Boy. Last evening at 5, I went to Chavalo’s in Bayfield for dinner. In front of Town Hall were about a dozen protesters with picket signs. I thought it might have been the Bayfield Anglo Grannies (BAGs), as they were in colorful gardening frocks and not a face mask to be seen. They were laughing and joking. Curiouser still, the signs said BLM, so I then thought it was for their kids who work for the Bureau of Land Management.

    Returning, I was going to stop, but they had all gone home. Fix dinner or feed the dogs, I suppose,

      The newest research I’ve seen (This Morning) is that an additional 45,000 Americans will die if we don’t all start wearing masks.

    Your banana project is going just as well as my attempt to do that “grow a rosebush from a potato” thing that was going around the Internet for awhile. I had to get rid of it when people around here started complaining about the smell.
