I have been in Port Townsend too long. Last week, at a yard sale, I met a woman I play Mah Jong with. Today, my son and I went to lunch at Fort Worden ,a historical state park. There were two of my exercise class mates
eating burgers at an outdoor table. Then , on the way home, I spotted another woman from my exercise class, walking out of her home, two blocks from my pod. There is only one explanation. I have been in
PT too long. I expect to know the dog walkers. Dog walkers bond quickly. But meeting people from the few activities that I participate in, on the street and at yard sales is making me a part of a community . That is not what I planned. I have been here since
June 3, 2020. I have been here so long that the post office says I can't keep getting my mail forwarded. They have a limit of one year. That may present a problem. Now the Delta virus is all around the
state of Washington. PT has 5 confirmed cases . That's 5 too many for my comfort.
