Meet Jeff Chamberlain, a reader who sent two photos. His captions are indented:
The first one is my interpretation of “solitary outdoors exercise.” I manage some woodlands (for wildlife and hunting, and lately also for jogging and trail walking). The implement on the front of the tractor is for picking up brush and grappling out roots. It’s a beast.
When I retired from regular work 20 years ago I went to professional baseball umpire school. Since then (in non-plague years) my “job” has been to officiate about 100 ballgames per year, working college and high school contests in the spring and various collegiate and adult leagues in the summer (plus some teenage tournaments). This year we’ve had no baseball so far, but several of the summer leagues are planning to re-open in early July (with a variety of safety protocols in place, one of the more visible of which will be that we will call balls and strikes from behind the pitcher, not the catcher). So here I am (with only a little staging) inventorying and cleaning the gear, awaiting the blessed day when there will again be baseball.
