I predict the 2030s will see the rise of Quaranteen Generation and they are never gonna give us up and never gonna let us down.

Happy Friday Miss C!

I had a Border Collie/Newfoundland mix, who was smart as a whip and at 165 lbs could press the issue.
At the end of the Nebraska Man story is a link to "True Grit" which is the story of feral cows on Cedar Island. I was fascinated by the description of how a hurricane offshore pushed the water to the shore and up the estuaries. Then after the eye passed and the wind was blowing the other way it pushed the water piled up 9 feet higher than the ocean back out hitting the barrier islands from behind, cutting Ocracoke Island into 101 pieces with 99 new channels. Don't mess with Mother Nature, she has a big bag of tricks.
