Goodbye, Facebook!

January 26, 2021
I tried deactivating on a phone, but couldn’t figure it out.


Yesterday I deactivated my Facebook account.  I usually spend hours scrolling through my 2500+ friends’ posts, reacting, posting comments, so this is a big deal to me.  I did this to see what will happen.  Also, I’ve been feeling poorly these days, even before I got my Covid immunization, which made me feel a huge amount of fatigue.  I took to my bed for a couple days.  

I felt depressed, so I reached out to my excellent psychiatrist, a football fan, my coach.  He responded with a prescription for an amazingly expensive pill that worked well for me before.  I have a followup appointment in three weeks.

Even getting a speedy reply to my phone message has made me feel pretty good.

If you want to stay in touch with me, follow my blog, 

Here are the usual photographs from my morning routine with Gunther, the love of Penny and my lives.  

Cold as hell today, but no snow.
Keeping Gunther on a string keeps him from wolfing down garbage he finds. Old frenchfries, chips. Like that.

Our 50th anniversary is this Saturday.  I bought her a ring and pair of earrings, festooned with Yogo sapphires.  I believe we will stay home, Covid-style.  And go to bed early, 71-year-olds.

I hope to add to this narrative in a regular fashion.

I’m reading The Periodic Table, by Primo Levi; and 600 Generations, by Carl Davis.  I recommend both, especially the one by Carl Davis, a new work about the archaeology of ancient people in Montana.

    The new snow blower must be lonesome. I am glad that you got your vaccinations. But you are still warm and alive.
    Happy 50th Anniversary to you Dan and Penny. You are the best.
    Stay on the bright sunny side,
