Honestly it has been slow in KC here too. Schools are trying to start back up but it is all fluid.

Glad to hear the water and electricity are better here.

If there is a way for us to get some care packages to you, let us know and we can keep you stocked up.

The bonus that has come from all this hubbub is a noticeable improvement to my Spanish listening skills. I don't hear very well, especially my left ear, because I blew out my eardrum when I was younger..and then spent 20 years working in furniture factories. I hadn't realized how very much I was dependent on facial expressions and watching the speaker's lips when conversing in Spanish. With everyone wearing a mask, I've been forced to focus more closely on what is being said to me. There's no real point to this post, other than I was trying to find something positive in it all :)

Occasionally, English words make their way into common Spanish usage. Here's one that has shown up recently. It's the "pickup" lane at a supermarket....

That's like a double wide Pi Cup lane for the mopeds
