Excerpts from a summer's police blotters in the boondocks... c'mon up sometime and spend a summer of fun! All those snapshots of idyllic little villages in the mountains are only the half of it.

We can only rarely get it together to commit any first degree offenses here in the sticks... except maybe criminal contempt and DWIs, and bear in mind it wasn't THAT many decades ago we had a good ol' boy DA went on record saying he'd "sooner spit on the sidewalk" than write up a DWI since by his lights driving under the influence was often enough just a rite of passage. Yeah... and there could still be a picture of him up on the wall in some sheriffs' offices, even if the rest of us may have offenders' pics up on a mental "most dangerous" list.​

That said, herewith this year's summer of fun despite covid-19:

Totally not on my bucket list. I just want to sit in a boat and enjoy being on the water.
Me too, these days at least, and I like it best when the only motion of the water is either ripples off a little breeze, or from fish jumping to catch flies. Watching that particular surfing event is roughly in the same class as watching Free Solo, the movie of Alex Honnold climbing the face of El Capitan without ropes. I had to think a couple times before deciding to have a look...

Agreed. I could never watch something like that live. I can only watch the video if I know the outcome.
