It’s morning: 6:01 AM.

“Alexa, turn on ‘Barney,'” I say aloud, and my lamp beside my recliner turns on.

“Alexa, turn on ‘Andy,'” and my desk lamp comes on.

“Tommy the Dawg” opens one eye and uses it to see what I’m doing. He closes it back.
“Just keep sleeping, buddy.”

I sit at my laptop and move the mouse. The screen comes on, and I sign in.

Out my window, it’s still dark outside.
It’s cloudy—big fat, dark clouds.
“It’s gonna rain, I bet,” I mumble.

Off in the far back corner of my view, the sky is pink. The Sun is coming up.
The day is starting.

Good Morning, Everyone.

Love you,
