Day 111 isolation

Three ones. One Hundred and eleven. That must mean something in numerology. One hundred plus eleven more. I learned the Gettysburg address when I was a child. Four score. I didn't know what score meant. It means twenty. So twenty times four. A total of eighty. It was more poetic to say four score and seven than to say eighty seven. I admire that. The poetry. Go Lincoln!
