Good Morning All,
On The Road and In Your Backyard is a weekday feature spotlighting reader submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, please share your part of the world, whether you’re traveling or just in your locality. Share some photos and a narrative, let us see through your pictures and words. We’re so lucky each and every day to see and appreciate the world around us!
Submissions from commenters are welcome at tools.balloon-juice.com
Apologies, I’m overwhelmed IRL right now for the next few days, so we’ll have more pictures Monday.
On the personal front, my FIL was today finally discharged and is happily home with his faithful dog and the simple comforts of normality. 20 days in the hospital is quite a lot, I mean, just wowzers! He is doing well and now has a pacemaker and is on the mend. Thankfully the extended stay only resulted in a rash that appeared in the past few days, and it’s responding to treatment. We welcome this mild assault as opposed to any number of other nasties floating and crawling around hospitals whose likelihood of getting you goes up with time spent.
As for this feature, except for an open thread, there’s nothing Thursday or Friday. As the cupboard is a bit bare, submissions are encouraged as I work through some email-submitted ones next week. For most purposes, please use the form.
Have a great day, open thread!
