Ya, we’re pretty sick of it. Have been since about March. So let’s just not even talk about it right now – maybe after we’ve had several years of therapy. And have had our vaccinations and some relief checks. Or been rehired to our lost jobs.
What can we do to get that yucky 2020 aftertaste out of our mouths?
First thing, we’re going to partake in an annual PM New Year’s Day ritual – we’re going birding! This has actually become a monthly ritual, if you hadn’t noticed. Y’all are welcome to join us! We’re planning on visiting Yosemite National Park and environs (including but not limited to Foresta, Crane Flat area, Yosemite Valley, Wawona, and Goat Meadow Snow Play area).
If you’re interested in joining this ritual, you must provide your own transportation and you must wear a mask and practice social distancing. No exceptions.
We’ll meet at the Midpines Park & Ride at the Community Center on Hwy 140 at 8:30am on New Year’s Day. Bring binoculars, foods, waters, handheld radios (if you have any), bird books or apps, and a smile! (Kindly leave your hangovers and any residual 2020 shit at home).
We MIGHT stop at Tandoori Express in Oakhurst at the end of the trek – they wear masks and take precautions and we’re craving Indian food, so we just might do it.
Second thing, we’re going to have a Zoom meeting – we do these weekly, ya know – on Sunday Jan 3rd at 11am. These last a couple of hours and usually involve us talking about recipes, perverted cats (don’t ask), birds, gardens, and sometimes business. THIS Sunday, we’ll be talking about an issue we wish to explore in the new year – Internet Access (or lack of same) in Mariposa County. We hope to have some sort of Zoom conference in early Spring so we’ll be discussing the planning and logistics. If you’d like to see what’s going on in general, visit and join Cheryl’s group on Facebook: Mariposa County Rural Internet Users Group.

In case we don’t see you or hear from you, we hope you have a safe and happy New Year celebration.
