Slats in the mudhole

there was a pretty large mudhole
the mud went out
sand went in

and slats on top, looks almost ready to let the cows out

Social distance shopping

Went to Costco Waterloo, had to stand in line in the cold
markers on the pavement and pellets between lines

The line went pretty fast
