This is a new post guys. Not in the same vein or lightness as the previous post. Like a lot of other people (even physicians), I truly thought that everyone was making mountain of a mole hill, especially in the US of A.
My tune has changed. Excuse me, I have to still chew on the rest of my foot that got stuck in my mouth. Chomp chomp…
Our hospital here has taken amazing steps it seems. I am getting info from them every day, sometimes twice. For a small town hospital, it is managing very well and the nurses and doctors have set up tents and triage centers. And I think we have adequate ventilators, which I hope to God we won’t have to use.
I only wish that the President had not disbanded the NSC Pandemic Unit that President Obama had in place after the other epidemics that we had. I honestly think if that Unit was still functional, we probably would have recognized this demon earlier and made great strides in controlling it. If you have time, you should read this. https://apnews.com/ce014d94b64e98b7203b873e56f80e9a?fbclid=IwAR3k1oDzzKmnU8sW0jyA2PSbTXNp1YqVr2s22ip9BsuWC13DnOsjaEHQpMg
Okay, finally—, I think I got the whole foot swallowed. Phew! Dang, that didn’t taste good.
Like everyone else, we are hunkered down at home. I went to my son’s home this morning to spend some time with his boys and show them craft ideas to keep them busy. Will probably do this every day, showing them to paint, sketch, and some trivia about general knowledge along with their school work. This week is the spring break for Quincy schools. The school board is doing such good work of providing breakfasts and lunches for families who depend on school breakfast and lunch programs. I think this is happening all over the country.
All this sound so gloomy, no?
But, spring is approaching. We all should get out and take a walk, hear the birds sing and chirp, cook some things that we enjoy, bake bread and let the home smell good.
And if you get visitors, put a large handwritten sign on your bathroom saying, “DO NOT USE! TOILET NOT FLUSHING!” That way you will save on all the hard- earned toilet rolls that people have selfishly hoarded!!
