* On election day I worked at a voting place as an “spanish” interpreter. An extremely long, exhausting, surreal first day of a surreal week.
* Drinking Japanese sake while Melissa watches some streaming service TV show (“The Queen”). COVID-19 cases once again going up, but at least the prospects of effective vaccines gives humanity hope.
* Recently a TV show got a lot of people interested in Chess, including Melissa who is now playing daily. Chess is probably the only board game that I actually enjoy, even though I’m terrible at it. Fond memories of playing Chess with my Dad when I was a kid (^_^)
