I am proud. I am glad. It is the proper & right thing to do. And that is why I am proud to call them — again — MY ‘West Indies‘. For at least 30-years of my life there was never any doubt that the West Indies, indubitably, were my team.
Then over the last decade they have driven me to distraction & beyond. But, every once in awhile they remind me why they used to be MY team. This is one of those occassions.
This gesture by them, alas, will not be seen by any white Americans. That is a great shame.
But, it will be seen by a lot of BROWN folks — like I, and that is NOT a bad thing. Brown people are racist. Many think that black folks are not as good as us. So, this is good.
Will they KNEEL during the ‘anthem’ — & here a supreme IRONY. They do NOT have a NATIONAL anthem! They do not represent one country — but many. But, they do have an anthem. Will they kneel.
I have heard that the England team, which is likely to have at least one non-white player, want to do something in solidarity. That would be good.
This is all good. Another reason why I adore cricket.

Finally last night we had some rain. Yes, we are officially in a drought — though not that severe as yet. But, this morning I KNEW what I had to do. And I did. Hope you like them Amazing what you can get with a Google Pixel 4 phone. Enjoy.

Saturday night on my nightly 11pm, 1-mile NIGHT walk. Second time I have seen him/her this week. This time I managed to snap this. Yes, I wear LED headlights. No streetlights & really no lights from the houses. They are all in bed! Yes, on our road, but in an undeveloped wetlands.
That was Saturday. Last night, i.e., Sunday, I was walking, again at 11pm, in the rain. A deer darted across. And BOY! Was it quick. Just a flash. WOW.
