Operation Oysterhood: 23 August

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

A Sunday morning in bed with the Cat Ladies and Harry. I finished the third book in the Bosch series, The Concrete Blond. The first two were really good, but I liked this one even more and now I am hooked and am going to read the rest. Twenty-two in the series so far, so I should be nicely occupied for a while. It feels great to read for simple pleasure and entertainment, absolutely not work-related.


But then it was time for some computer work, a small cushion for support for my now yellow-green-blue underarm.

I thought a lot today about the a Trevor Noah clip on Joe Biden and people referring to him as ‘decent’. One would think that being ‘decent’ should be obvious for anyone serving people in whichever position, but we live in a world in which it has become a rare quality. Unless we continue fighting for these basic qualities like decency, transparency, integrity, accountability and responsibility, we will continue to stumble around in darkness. I am sick and tired of psychopaths, their toxic, manipulative and gaslighting reigns. At the Democratic National Convention, Kamala Harris spoke about recognising a predator when she sees one. We all have to train ourselves to spot and expose them, the sooner the better – they usually start small before continuing to greener pastures and turning them into toxic wastelands.

Let’s look for decent people and support their efforts to make the world a more decent place, on all our small and big stages.


The roses from my love are still as stunning as on the first day.

I spent the later part of the afternoon with my love. We went for a walk and saw beautiful flowers and this wondrous creature.


I am writing early as I wait for dinner, which is being prepared for me. Roast chicken – no one makes it better than my love. A Sunday treat I often ask for. (All our Cats also delight in it.)

Day One Hundred and Fifty. Hard to believe.

Tomorrow is going to be busy and I can’t say that I am looking forward to all of it, but I am seeing two friends and that will make up for the rest.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
