A great move by these governors ---- it is not a Republican or Democratic topic, it is a national topic, and a world wide topic. I hope people will see this example and take it to heart ---- and, as Tammy says ---- work together.
You can't do anything for anyone else unless you protect your own health first. Unfortunately, you have to be extra careful. I hope those around you are keeping your care in mind.
Well, North Texas is down one large gathering this Thanksgiving. I usually have all my single or family-less friends over for both Thanksgiving and Xmas dinner. So far none of us has contracted the virus nor shown any symptoms but we are not willing to take the chance (none of us are Spring chickens.). Thinking about delivering plates and setting up a Zoom meeting so we can all be together in some manner. If not, I’ll have turkey for at least a month!
Good vibes to all and hope you and your friends and family stay healthy.
I'm replying to an earlier (Nov. 19) post I did about my daughter-in-law's aunt who posted on Facebook about "what makes Covid so special." ... so if you don't know what I'm talking about it will be easy to find it.
Since my son and his wife and boys were having Thanksgiving dinner by themselves he asked me about a week ago to join them. They've been very careful. My son and his wife are teachers and the Louisville school system has not had in-class learning since last March so they and the boys haven't been in school. Whenever they go anywhere they are very careful about wearing masks and they don't go places unless it's absolutely necessary. So I felt relatively safe going to their house for Thanksgiving - as long as I wore a mask.
Well, guess what I saw on Facebook today??? My daughter-in-law's mother - sister to the aunt who posted the "what makes Covid so special" comment - is now in her 3rd day of Covid. I called my son and asked him when was the last time his wife was around her mother. He said about three weeks ago. I don't know but I think that's cutting it a little too close for comfort. I think I'm playing it safe and staying home. He told me to do whatever I think is best.
A part of me hates to stay home because I wanted to see my grandsons (ages 14 and 11) and I think they will be disappointed. But I'd rather stay home this year than not see them at all for years to come. Right???
That is the saddest part of this whole mess. My daughter and grandson from CT were already in California for a month and were to come to Las Vegas to spend Thanksgiving with us. When the numbers started going up here, they decided it was too risky for us and went home early. We haven't seen any of our family for more than a year now. But yes, you are right.
I'm sorry you had to make that decision, it must have been very hard. But you know it is the right decision for you.
Very, very sad ---- but very, very right.
So sorry you had to make this tough decision, maybe your son will bring you some leftovers.
I understand about not seeing your family, we don't have Thanksgiving down here in Australia, but I know about not seeing family. My son & D-I-L live in Spain and I haven't seen her since October 2018, when we met up in the States. I saw my son in January 2019 when he was down under for work, saw my grandson in Octo 2018, also in the States. He was due to move to Texas for work for 2 years earlier this year, but that is on hold. Do get to speak to him on the phone. Haven't heard from the others since July. No news is good news in my book.
During WWII my mother in law saw her husband 1 time in 4 years. He was moved so often to different countries and with the bombings everywhere there was no relief. He was in English side of secret service. He had trained as a cabin boy 2 years and went to sea at 12 for 6 yrs. until he was called home to be in Royal fire brigade 2 yrs and then to serve until end of war in secret service. Everything was rationed. Everything. When pork and beans came from US the can took a meat ration . They were hard to get. You could go to a restaurant and would get 1 slice of bread and a spoonful of pork and beans. And it was a wonderful treat. My husband and his brother had never seen citrus until they came to America. Age 5 & 8.
What they gave up for Freedom was so much more then face masks washing hands and distance.
I know what we have to do now is hard for us and depressing and scary. But as my Father in law used to say buck up stiff upper lip and carry on.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL
