It’s blustery and the fog is all swirly and there are leaves in the air.
To be honest, I think I like Whiskey Wednesdays @sevensaints better, but a whiskey club would be cool too. https://www.mensjournal.com/food-drink/the-most-premium-and-exclusive-whiskey-clubs-in-the-world/
As the old wives’ tale has it, the size of the woolly bear’s sweater foretells the severity of the coming winter. I’d judge this one to be about average. Maybe a little on the chilly side.

Reading @ChrisMcDougall’s Running with Sherman and drinking the @BlindPigBrewery Dark Mild while I wait for my Esperanto group to arrive. Beer not bitter enough for @limako, but I like it. Book not bitter at all
I have the Triptych Batch 600 double IPA, @jackieLbrewer has Journeyman Bilberry Blackhearts martini, very dry, and Rosie has a Grey Goose martini, dry, a little dirty, with three olives. @sevensaints

Ragweed season started back on August 9th, and now seems finally to be over. Yesterday, for the first time in maybe three weeks, I didn’t need to use nasal steroids. (Same nasal steroids I used to use almost all the time, until I went low-carb.)
Yesterday I met friends for coffee, attended my OLLI class, and met with my Esperanto group. Today is my taiji class, an open house where my mother-in-law lives, and a Winfield Village board meeting.
Am I not the most socialist of all possible butterflies?
