(I got through to my daughter by phone yesterday, everyone is fine, situation seems to be calm.
She commented on inflation again, back in the late 1970's the Zimbabwean dollar was worth more than the U.S. dollar, now almost without value. When my son visited her 2 years ago a beer cost $250,000, and restaurants wrote prices on menus in dry-erase marker as they change every day. They carried money around in "bricks" of bills held by rubber bands. Even worse now, a litre of milk yesterday cost $28 billion, yes, billion with a "b".)
Apologize for the personal, non-running stuff.
"Today I broke my record for most consecutive days lived!"
Courage ! Do one brave thing today...then run like hell.
