    2020 was a dramatic pain in the butt, however didn’t know anybody who died or any people in my small chain of work or friend acquaintances who died.

    This year people are dropping like flies. Add to that we are seeing tons of 20,30,40 yo with terminal cancer diagnoses.

    Not even halfway in. And I already want out.

    Well I haven't noticed any of 2nd paragraph here.
    But yes I hope I survive through another waterfowl season and get to take granddaughter turkey hunting next spring.
    If I meet a early dimiss it'll be my work load , since we can't find a young person able or willing to learn what and do what I do.

    Lots of very sad families through the pharmacy. Between covid, cancer, and more natural causes, we've lost a lot of our community in the last year. Lost another 4 this month so far, a couple that I have known for more than 30 years. A couple young guys with cancer diagnosis, poor prognosis, yep, it can be a sad time for a lot of people. I am grateful every day I can get up and active, as I know there will come a day.....

    It's been tough this year. A friend and neighbor down in DE hanged himself last month. BIL has stage 4 cancer but they can't find where it's coming from.

    That's pretty good! I do good to hit a pie plate at 40.

    I do have some incentive to practice! This looks like it will be a good one. IMG_20210609_201216~2.jpg
