On Friday our county jumped in Covid numbers. 35 people that were positive were recovering at home.
Our numbers jumped again. 70 people recovering at home. Good news is I guess is that we still only have one death.
The scuttle butt is that there are a few nursing homes showing up with the virus. Yes, after spending time with my MIL over the past year or so...old people and infirm people do really matter. So don't tell me they don't. I spent so much time with those in the home with my MIL, that I got to know them as fun wonderful people. Infirm in mind? Perhaps. Unable to care for themselves... yes. But wonderful and beautiful people.
Yet one neighbor down the ridge told me not to worry. You know...only 1% die from this virus.
Let's do some math. 328.2 million people live in our country. If the virus will only kill ...
We are left with 3million, 282 thousand deaths.
But you know what? It's just numbers. The Covid-19 is no big deal. Unless, your loved one, your dad, mom, sister, cousin, grandchild, or child dies. And they could die alone.
I want to ask my neighbor *What's 1% of your family?*
I leave you to your own thoughts and conclusions. I need to go out and be like Charlie.
Enjoy the forest floor and enjoy with pure abandon.
After all, there is slime mold to look for!
