Subject: RE: BS: stay afloat while others don't
Things are calm here, which is nice for a change.
People managed to mellow out a bit, over the holiday.
Doesn't always happen --
this is my third Memorial Day at this clinic,
and at the worst of the pandemic/lockdown, holidays were just as tense and volatile, if not more so, than
the usual treatment schedule. But this time things were chill.

Somebody pointed out that this is the time of year
when bears get hungry and start raiding dumpsters again.
And this has happened in summers past, so we will have to
keep a weather eye on dumpsters for bears, all over again.

Because this region has had a high rate of infection,
we are wearing facemasks in common areas again.
Our housemate, thankfully, is testing negative and recovering slowly.
