Received a nice piece in the mail: Congresswoman Cindy Axne’s Coronavirus Relief Guide for Iowa Employers.
We came home from the hardware store to find two police cars, a fire truck, a line of cars, and a man with a television camera from channel 5 just up the block. I approached the cameraman and asked what was going on. “It’s a birthday parade,” he said. This I had not considered. A fire or heart attack, yes. A parade on a random Monday night, no. In an effort to social distance, my neighbor’s friends gathered themselves (and the local public safety—including the fire station’s Dalmatian, Ember) for a two block parade past her house. We went back outside later and waved as they drove past. They threw candy. I got a KitKat.
