    Chapter 3, ha ha:
    We were scheduled to visit Sacto to visit a dear old friend who had a health scare in November, but that is cancelled of course. We'll see when we can reschedule. We were also staying with another dear friend in Oakland whose daughter is working on her PhD at Davis doing field work on foxes, who just bought a house in Sacto.

    That is the long news from here.

    Take good care, Ken. Hope the great news continues.

    Chapter 2:
    Thankfully my kids are back in VT at my ex's house. She went down and got my older one from NYC just as things were beginning to get really bad there. That's a big relief. They both seem healthy and fine.

    We've had a bunch of snow here. Snows heavily and melts as it is mostly in the high 30's during the day. Most is melted now. We had almost a foot a couple of days ago that lasted just a day or two. It is sugaring season; big plumes of steam are rising from all the sugar houses around me (there are a half dozen back on these dirt roads, some at big farms) as they are boiling away. Soon will be the frog run (what they call the last sap run, marked by the arrival of spring peepers). The peepers are so loud here at dusk, that I literally have to hold my hands over my ears near my pond. It is amazing, like nothing anywhere else. That will be in a week or so.

    Hi Ken,
    Just saw your note. That is such great news about your cancer! Hoping for continued great news.

    Posting in two chapters... character limit...

    Things OK in VT, in a complete lock down. Less effect on me, since I just go to my studio every day, which is 300 feet from the house. Nicole is a bit overwhelmed. She is a Speech Language Pathologist in the schools and the schools are now closed for the rest of the year. So she is doing everything via Zoom, which actually is a lot more work. And she has been seeing how all this is affecting families and kids. A certain number of her clients are from pretty tough circumstances, and they are being really hit hard (as they have from social safety net cutbacks over the years). Nicole is helping deliver food to the families. The evening classes I teach have been cancelled, but that is small potatoes. We are likely going to have to postpone our wedding in late June, for a year. Sad about that... again small potatoes.

    Hi Dang!

    Thanks for the post regarding my cancer, best wishes and the tank I truly appreciate it. I had a CT scan on Tuesday, and the cancer has reduced in size down to 50% of what is was 8 weeks ago when I was first diagnosed. The doctors were amazed, they would of been happy just to see no growth. It was the best news I heard in a long time.

    How's the weather in Vermont, is it still chilly this time of year.? We've had another drought year, not a lot of rain, and we could sure use more!

    Take Care,

    Ken
