Dear friends and colleagues,
Welcome to our #alpha “micro-dose” edition of Roberts’ Green Letter. Because we all could use a refresh on the Greek alphabet outside of frats, COVID, and storms.
Ever wish you had spent more time with a hero before they leave?
Alison and I visited Rick (from Congrats Rich Holcomb! on the blog) this Sunday morning. He took me out the back door and pointed out the sugar maple he lost in the most recent storm. (“What I’ve spent the last three days on,” he said, angling his chin toward the output of a 66-year-old man and his chainsaw.)
Rick pointed down into the valley at the unnamed brook that flows through his backyard. “That brook runs so clean you can drink out of it any day of the year!”
I remarked later to Alison, “There’s no one else I know who thinks and talks more about clean water than Rick.”
“Shouldn’t we all be that way?” replied Alison.
To think of them with a smile I’ve worked them into a re-telling of an old joke.
Gail Lindsey felt sad but then delighted to see Lance Hosey appear in heaven.
