ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept. 27

I have always been a decisive type person. Sometimes I act impulsively and sometimes, I actually think through to a conclusion. Right now, I honestly don’t  know what to do. I have given myself a time line : in 2 weeks, I will make the decision to either come back to Venice, or stay in Port Townsend. I figured that would be enough time for the unmasked people to start going back to bars and restaurants as proposed by the Governor of Florida, and for the Covid  virus to increase the number of people who become infected. The decision will be made for me, since I can’t seem to make it myself. Today, the talk around our Saturday family brunch was to buy me a car , so I would have wheels again. I can now understand how a person can feel as if they lost their independence by not having a car. Actually, I hardly go any place and there is no problem borrowing a car from my grandson.  But just being able to jump in the car without having to plan for it, seems like a loss of independence to me. At any given time, we have three cars sitting in the driveway. Two are manual.I use to drive a stick shift, and I could probably remember how to shift ,if I had to, but these hills intimidate me. A nice automatic mini van sounds really nice right now. Color is optional.
