Up late to watch the Perseids. Was out for 30 minutes. Saw two bright ones and I think I saw some very dim ones but it’s hard to tell.

Today I gave my 90th blood donation. I was surprised.

Latest peeve: Seeing staunch used instead of stanch when describing something that needs to be restricted or contained. Makes my teeth hurt.

Ann and I are back to hiking in MN State Parks. Great River Bluffs was the last. We’ll revisit in autumn. The colors should be awesome!
