Hello to you wherever you are
April 26, 2020
I asked someone the date while paying for their iron, and they said it was the 43rd day of April. It does seem like March and April have lasted a long time.
My brother Jack and family may have been in quarantine too long. For entertainment, sister-in-law Sandy caught her hair on fire while fixing breakfast the other day. It just burned a little hair on the front of her bangs, and frankly, she looks lots better. You can see her pretty face now, and Jack saved a beautician bill.
I see where some states (Oklahoma included) are going to let some businesses reopen. I think in smaller towns where you are not exposed to lots of people this might be okay if everyone is careful. In the larger cities, I'm not so sure. One commentator said that he was afraid impromptu hugs and handshakes may go the way of the dodo bird. Sure hope he is wrong.
I didn't write this, but it is an interesting perspective of government control. This will make conspiracy theory folks and government control worriers nervous. Some of the rules do seem a little strange to me.
When the State tells you it's safe to go to Home Depot to buy a sponge but dangerous to go and buy a flower, it's not about your health. When the state shuts down millions of private businesses but doesn't lay off a single government employee, it's not about your health. When the state bans dentists because it is unsafe, but deems an abortion visit is safe, it's not about your health. When the State prevents you from buying cucumber seeds because it's dangerous, but allows in-person lottery ticket sales, it's not about your health. When the state tells you it's dangerous to go golf alone, fish alone, or be in a motorboat alone, but the governor can get his stage make up done, and hair done for five TV appearances a week, it's not about your health. When the state puts you IN a jail cell for walking in a park with your child because it's too dangerous but lets criminals OUT of jail cells for their health, it's not about YOUR health! When the state tells you it's too dangerous to get treated by a doctor of chiropractic or physical therapy treatments yet deems a liquor store essential, it's not about your health! When the state lets you go to the grocery store or hardware store but is demanding mail-in voting, IT'S NOT ABOUT YOUR HEALTH, WAKE UP PEOPLE. If you think this is all about your health you're mistaken! Please open your eyes! Stop being led like blind sheep.
I hope we had a good cleanup day in Alva on Saturday, and your place looks better to the neighbors. If you didn't get your metals hauled off Saturday, feel free to drop them off at the salvage.
