A little bit of peace on earth

 The sun comes up on another day during the pandemic.

 It's peaceful and calm and the gang is all here, if only in spirit 
(that's Smooch's resting place under the rocks in the background).

 Look closely and you'll see Alex way back there at the gate.

We're getting a bit desperate for rain, but the yucca is in bloom...

100% of the proceeds from a rug purchase go directly to the weaver.
I could think of no better way to use my stimulus check.
