A route around the neighborhood that was just different enough that I knew it wasn't a repeat, In The Dark. Mid 30s F, so I wore a puffy jacket and a hat, but I was going at racewalk pace, so the hat came off pretty early and the jacket was unzipped by the end. Fast enough that AP's guess was that this was "running". Mostly overcast, so there was enough sky glow that I never turned on the flashlight in my pocket, not even when the one car went by.
Close to done getting Nancy moved, just a few more hours of work remaining.
Unfortunately, I got some sad news today that hit close to home. My high school friend Dave was found yesterday expired in his apartment by somebody doing a wellness check (maybe he hadn't showed up to work or something). Cause of death is reported to be COVID-19 (I'm not certain whether this has been reliably determined). He had a rough start in life, spending his early years in a series of foster homes, but things got better for a while later on. But in recent years he had turned into kind of a recluse, living in an attic apartment for the last couple of decades and I think spending most of his time in role-playing computer games. He lived only about ten minutes away, but I don't think I'd seen him in at least ten years, although I did talk to him on the phone a few years ago. A pity. He was one of my teammates for my first orienteering experience, in high school PE class in December of 1978. I'm pretty sure he was about a week shy of his 60th birthday.
