Thanks for your enjoyable posts.

No commute here in Grantsburg, WI (pop. 1237) except when I ride my bike three blocks to work. We are reading typical summer fare while in the hammock: Bill Bryson's "1927," Stephen King's "Mr. Mercedes" and its sequel "FindersKeepers."

Also read Jean Edward Smith's biography of Ulysses S.Grant. It seemed appropriate to read about our hamlet's namesake during our sesquicentennial year. Founded 1865, when Grant was national hero, at least up North.
