This strange springtime of social distancing keeps presenting me with new opportunities to string sentences together that I never in a million years thought I'd say. Case in point, the latest of such unexpected statements: today I am indeed wearing a pair of socks emblazoned with the face of the Governor of Kentucky, Andy Beshear. … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 31
