It will stop when we have a vaccine, but that's a year away.

It will slow down to a "reasonable" risk when enough people are infected and recover and enough people stay at home that the surge to our health care system subsides. It could become more manageable if we find a treatment. It will be more manageable when we actually test enough people that we can isolate and contact trace those infected.

We have to get to a point that our health care system can manage the number of people infected.

Listen to the health care professionals NOT politicians.


This was a post I made at the end of March. There are some who are saying the pandemic will be over since the election is over.

PLEASE DON'T BUY INTO THIS NARRATIVE. We are in worse shape going into winter than we were at the peak early in April and May.

We are all getting pandemic fatigue, but all the evidence points to a more serious problem over the next few months. Cases and positivity rates and hospitalizations are all going up at an exponential rate.

On the positive side, there was a 60 Minutes story last night interviewing the military supply general in charge of distributing a vaccine when it is approved by the FDA. The US military is amazingly prepared for distribution of a vaccine working with private companies that are developing and manufacturing the vaccine and then the health care facilities and health departments that will administer the vaccine.

It will probably be the middle of next year before most of the country can be vaccinated even with the most optimistic outlook.

Keep yourselves safe, this will be over but it's going to take a little longer.

I watched that interview about the vaccine.

Yes it will take a good while before everyone that wants to get vaccinated can get it.

We had 7 days in a row over 70 degrees. Today the cold front starts to move in.
Oh well it was nice while it lasted.

We'll miss you, Richard, and all your lovely posts about Suzie, Dixie, etc., but we will try to keep the Old Fella thread moving along.

We're in a lovely weather phase, with a cold front inbound for Sunday that will drop us into actual autumn temperatures. We might even have to build a fire or two, but it still won't be cold enough to have to turn on the heater.

Decided to drop in for a visit. Reading DR. DOUg's post about the virus, interesting. I hope it is over soon. I keep going back and forth to the hospital and the last thing I need right now is to get the virus. I passed out at home the other morning. Still don't know what is going on. I had to back out of my son's wedding for fear of having a passing ou0 episode while conducting the service. Enough of that. I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

If any of you still think this COVID pandemic is not real, this is part of an email I got from
The Indiana Department of Health wrote:

Rise Up. Respond. Reinforce our Hoosier Healthcare Heroes.

The Indiana Department of Health needs all available licensed healthcare professionals to sign up to serve in the COVID-19 response. This includes those providers who may have a license from another state or those who are retired. We are in need of heroes from every healthcare-related profession, at any level of training (including students), and in positions and locations throughout the state. Please sign up at bit.ly/HoosierHealthcareHeroesRiseUp to be a part of Indiana’s COVID-19 response.


When they start asking for help from retired vets to assist in the care for humans, things are critical.

WEAR A MASK!!!

Only if everyone would. I do think more people are starting to wear them in our area. Although you still see some that refuse or have it on wrong. We see a few that have them on to enter a building and then pull it down.

The Governor is going to start policing businesses with the W.C. First offense will be a warning second will be a closure up to 24 hours. Never said what it would be after that.

Soon the vaccine will be out. Hopefully enough people will take it to make a difference. We will soon as it is available.

Stay safe and Healthy

Never in my wildest dreams did I think that wearing a basic, life saving device such as a mask would cause such controversy in our country.[emoticon]

Heck you have people getting killed because they have a different political view. Doesn't surprise me at all about the mask. Same with the vaccine that several people said they would not take. We have some serious devision in the country.

@Dixie Flyer, I have come in here off and on through the years and remember seeing this years ago. This is always one place that I stop by to see if it’s still going strong and love to see posts from you. Sounds like you’re having issues with sight and such. So sorry you’re not feeling good. My prayers to you.
