Liner Notes: 

This was my first day out of the house in ages. We went to the Cat Doctor, 3 bookstores, REI, and a Greek cafe for an outdoor lunch.
Limericks again. I've written about 150 since the Helsinki Summit, July, 2018.

Wednesday was a beautiful day.
We stopped at the Cat Doctor along our way.
At B & N, I saw my friend,
But this wasn’t quite the end.
We lunched outside at Athens Café.

Off we went to the Ft. Collins R.E.I.
For a new pair of shoes to try,
And O Fit Insoles
For my old Oboz,
My first-in-months in-store buys.

I bought a poetry book at the B & N next door
Then toward home, we drove once more.
At the exit at Loveland
I said to my husband
Let’s save a trip and hit one more bookstore.

While he sat in the shade in the car
I went in to return a book on guitar.
It had been so nice
I’d bought it twice,
Then we rode home. It wasn’t far.

I’m writing this in case I get sick,
Because maybe Covid, on my face, did stick,
So someone can trace
From place to place
And get people tested really quick.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
