So when is your surgery? 
 

Question regarding Covid if you know......the 2 people you mentioned..... is it because of blood types? I have heard that O blood has an easier time. True? Or you haven’t really noticed.

Surgery is December 2nd and I’ll be totally off work through December 29th, yipppeee!! blush

Im pretty sure the blood type link between COVID outcomes has largely been debunked. I’ll do a literature search in our database maybe later and see if there is anything new. There is evidence that women overall fare better, so we have that on our side. Now...question for you... so they have us slotted for first vaccine rollout. Not sure I want to be in the first round?? One does look promising. Two actually do but one has more data on folks over 50. I really do wish there were a good antibody test! Especially with evidence now pointing to longer term natural immunity. Speaking of vaccines....measles killed a lot of people world wide last year. Sad thing to me about that is this: how many kids that died from that would have lived if they had a say so in whether they got vaccinated or not? 
Sorry Eve...you know how my mind works. Constantly in many directions...

Don’t hang your hat on your blood type yet, but DO wear a mask, keep distance, avoid gatherings, keep grimy mitts away from face even if they are just washed! 
Oh....and don’t pick your nose either joy

Thought I asked it but not very directly...would you be in first group to get COVID vaccine?

Answer is NOPE! Honestly I think rushed, and not enough known about long term effects. I have many other thoughts but not sure appropriate for this, nor do I want backlash  

You are on the front lines, I absolutely do not see what you do. Nor do I know anyone who passed from it, some people have said they had it, but no hospital. So my thoughts are still No but I do do my part even if I think even the scientists don’t know what or how this is transmitted.

It’s definitely been a rush job. With a lot of political influence. Both of those have a role in my reluctance for sure. Treatment is better, death toll down even though numbers are up, so I kind of feel like it’s a dice roll to get it, or to get the vaccine. We may not have a choice, similar to flu shots though. That’s word on the street at work and not official. Not sure how that can be instituted “forcefully “ so to speak, and will wait to get official word on that aspect before I get my panties in a wad. Would definitely be interested in your thoughts otherwise if you want to PM them to me. I figure the more angles I have to look at something and think about it, the better really, so please do!

Tiny,

I found this article for you. It won’t fix the pending doom you are having about the Howlidays, but it will help validate where you are, let you know you’re not alone, and put some of those disconnected thoughts many of us have about them into words. Which, for me (surprise surprise!) is helpful. I’m gonna cc Peggy who I’m sure can relate, and Nika as I know she was remarking on the season. I’m also very interested in hearing from Nika if the season takes on quite the same level of consumerism, and commercialism there as it does here. I know that may be hard to gauge as she is not here, but, Nika, I will attest to the fact that Christmas bobbles were in the store here BEFORE  Halloween. One thing that struck me in their article is them speaking to the seasonality of things and how there is now such a mismatch of the commercialization of Christmas with our environment and natural surroundings. That part sucks the worst for me and definitely screams Capitalism way more than Christmas. 
Hopefully we are all left with a few, or even one fond memory of of the season from when we were younger. Even if it is only what we once held as hope. I believe that holding hope as a memory keeps it alive, even if only a little.

Dang 20G on the cat...whoa sista.  Don’t believe I have ever spent that much but also never had it to spend.

Wish you were hear to teach us a shooting class.  One of my friends daughters said she wud.  Cary was suppose to help me pick out a gun.  What kind should I get?  Anyone pipe on in on this question.  Easy to use, load, compact but maybe take a hog down?  Or do I need a rifle

Yes, will see if report comes back Sunday with test results.  A teacher friend could not get an appt for 3 days.  Took me 2 days to get one. I agree with y’all better to be sure.

Yes lumberjack exposed.  My dentist saw me anyway...she is awesome.  I can eat anything...that is not that wonderful but tooth is fine now.  Think I will go her route over your dad’s homemade teeth but thanks!,!

So Jackson had oily ring around neck.  I put them on a leash and take them to greenhouse.  Have hot and cold water there so can shower them.....no baths, Tiny.....Lol.  Helped a ton.

I am not offended by any of the socks.  They are really quite amazing fun for all!!  Definately a sock for everybody!

Hugs to ya
