"Tuesday To sleep after ten to awaken at five fifty-three, right in time to listen to the KPFA five minutes news before Democracy Now! started at six. Up then to walk to breakfast under clear skies, the Air Quality Index at 89, half of what it was yesterday morning. Still at the Unhealthy for Some level, although it was down to Moderate by noon. Arrived to find the tables in place, although they were running a little late and so settled in to start on the papers.

The plain waffle with sliced bananas and strawberries, fruit cup and coffee this time, finishing up at nine-twenty, looking to arrive at the barber shop for the nine-thirty appointment and so set out at a little more urgent clip and settle in the barber's chair by twenty-five after, wondering how many customers did she have to cut before one came through with the virus? Not wonderful to be a hair stylist during a pandemic, not sure the mask I was wearing (masks we were wearing) provide enough protection. Ah, well.

On home, passing a group of Lime scooters set out along the sidewalk, haven't seen that in a while. On up the hill to take the selfie in the lobby and settle in at the computer to finish and post yesterday's skimpy entry before starting here. Tired again, I'm afraid.

Later. Another day with the tablet and avoiding news coverage of Mr. Trump that involves listening to him or his family members speak, one of whom managed to spend much too much time on the PBS Newshour and caused me to write this. All that this afternoon and a nap.

Evening. The Air Quality Index at eight this evening was 4.05!! Opened the balcony door and bedroom windows to let in the outside air and allow the apartment cool down! How good is that?

The photo up top was taken at the San Francisco 2017 LGBTQ Pride Parade with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
