Richard, you sound really down. I got my first COVID vaccination just a couple of hours ago.

The vaccination is not just for each individual and his or her protection, it's also for society. The way an epidemic is stopped is to reduce the number of individuals that can get and spread the virus. We all need to protect our family members and friends and then the people we don't even know. The health care workers, first responders, grocery store workers, delivery people have all put their lives at risk to protect the rest of us.

Daily they have gone to work knowing that they could be exposed to this disease.

I feel it is my duty to give back to them, to protect them and our kids. A loving attitude needs to extend to all people.

Well said. My wife and I are scheduled for our 2nd Pfizer shot next week. Then later we'll be singing the old song "On The Road Again"

Richard, I read your post. I agree that it sounds as if you’re a bit depressed. I understand your hesitancy with the vaccine. My parents are as well. It worries me though because both are in the upper age bracket of over 75+ and especially my Dad who has pretty much any risk factor one can think of and now also adding to the list possibly, we will find out more Friday or the following week.

That said, please try to find something to be passionate and rejoice about each day! It’s a hard time of year! I struggle from seasonal affective disorder, and can empathize that it this is a rough time of year. But it too shall pass!!! We just have to keep busy and stay positive, no matter how hard it might seem at the moment!

Please reach out if you need somebody to chat with!

This pandemic has impacted everyone, and has made it hard to physically get together, but there’s other ways to stay in touch! Phone calls are so valuable these days! Stay strong! Better days are ahead!

Stay safe and be well!

Doctor today told me I was not out of the woods with the question of Afib. Just because the monitor didn't show and irregular heart beat the month I wore it doesn't really mean I didn't have an irregular beat the day I had the stroke, he now said I have had two strokes. He also said I was a likely candidate for another stroke. So I am on watch with him. If I have a fast heart beat that makes me feel as if my heart is pounding I should call him immediately and go to the hospital. OH well all is fun when you get old. S0 now I am waiting for the next thing to happen that sends me to the hospital. kay I am going to close for now wishing everyone a blessed evening Be sure ti give the fur babies a hug for me ans be sure to tell someone you love them.

This has been a terrible winter to be stuck at home. We're also due for more snow, they say up to 9 inches. We already had a foot then multiple "little" add-ons with 2-4 inches each. We have gotten above 20 only once all this month and low has been -8.

I've had to shovel paths for Kaylee. Sasha uses them but also like to run (hop) through the snow that's a little deeper than chest deep.

Dturm, makes me very glad to live down here. Our little bout with Uri was bad, but it only lasts a few days, where you get weeks and weeks of nasty winter.

You and the fur babies stay safe up there.

The weather around here is fairly normal for this time of year. Most of us get used to it, but it's just harder as we get older.

We by no means have it worse than many areas of the country. Northern Wisconsin, the UP of Michigan, northern Ohio and western PA and NY get more snow than we do and International Falls, MN always seems to set the low temp records.

The spring and fall make up for the winter.

we are still here. Seem to be well. Have gotten the vacine shot yet, most likely won't either. All the family is doing well. Yesterday I had a off day, felt strange. today has been a good day. THe weatherman says we can expect snow and sleet tonight and in the morning. Says the accumulation will be enough to cause problems interstate. they have put out an advisory to stay home in the morning if you don'tn have to be out.

I have enough fire wood if the power goes out we will still be able to stay warm. Each day I can see where the Parkinson is becoming more noticeable. I hope all is well with everyone. Keep on camping folks. Sue and I have about decided to get a pop up. ON with a shower and toilet. WE had one back in the 90's. it was okay. you could heat it with two small electric heaters. It was comfortable even when it was down in the teens at night. Sue can drive and pull teh pop up without any problem. )kay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed evening. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone youlove them.

well today seems to be a better day. Overall I would say Parkinson is getting the better of me.. can't go anywhere or do anything comfortably. MY mind wonders from one subject to another. I will start something and in the middle of it, I will stop and start thinking of something else. If I start reading something I will lose concentration and become confused and stop reading and move on to something else. Right now I am having a hard time typing this post. I think I will stop for now and rest. Good bye folks. have a blessed day. GIve the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them
