Good Thursday Morning, Dear Porchies,
Time for a new Porch. Actually past time but I guess it doesn't hurt for the Porches to get long. Please go back to read the final posts on the last Porch. We will soon be at 1,200. I thought it might be a nice break to take a walk through this virtual meadow with lovely flowering trees in spring. To me, the sunlight represents hope.
Wow! Lots to do today so will have to get into the shower and wash the mop. We had wild fires to the north of us and to the south. It's scary this time of year. We may get rain tomorrow and Sat. I hope so; we desperately need it.
Sun & Granni, it's not just clueless kids who are flaunting the rules to help stop the spreading of the virus, there are people all over congregating and not wearing masks. A restaurant in CO opened and no one was wearing masks and the place was packed wall to wall. The restaurant's owner lost his license. Protesters are demanding their 'Constitutional rights' to spread the pandemic while gathering without masks with some openly carrying assault weapons. It's crazy and stupid. When I look at the sacrifices that those who came before us made during WWI, WWII and The Great Depression, it is amazing to me that people are being so careless. I do understand the need to start opening our country up and it is heartbreaking to see all those who cannot work but those who are acting carelessly are just making it more difficult to open up and likely causing more infections and deaths. I'm totally disgusted. They are the ones making the news but I think the majority of people are caring and trying to be safe.
Granni, Claudia has RLS and I know her legs hurt if she sits or stands too long in one position. Yes, we seem to pick up more and more conditions as the years go by. I have picked up a major inflammatory condition every ten years--in 1990 it was CFIDS/ME from a mycoplasma infection; in 2000 it was FMS following an auto collision; and, in 2010 Sjogren's Syndrome showed up out of the blue. It's 2020 and I'm getting nervous. I hope to break the curse. I think I had this virus back in Jan. but it could have been the flu. My legs have hurt so bad ever since and I worry about some kind of condition that was spawned by whatever I had. I hope it's temporary. My legs hurt like that for months following the mycoplasma infection. The pain finally went away then but I was never the same again.
The book was about a man who shoved Jesus as He was walking with the cross at the crucifixion. He was cursed to never die and to have to stay no longer than three days in one place. He had to roam the Earth for 2,000 years. He met all kinds of people on his travels and influenced the great minds along the way as he tried to atone and have the curse lifted. Satan, in the persona of a young man, was always after him to go to the evil side. There was a showdown and it looked as though Satan might go to the side of good but he didn't. So, the story left me wondering. Not satisfying but likely the only way it could end. As I said, it was a weird story. Hope your legs feel better.
Sun, I can only imagine how hard it is to wait to find out what is going on with your bladder. You have been through so much. I hope and pray you can see the doc but maybe it would be better to wait a bit if the chance of getting the virus is more likely than the cancer's making another inroad. I can certainly see why this is so stressful. I think we will be wearing masks for a long time too. Even though we don't wear them for our own protection, a doc on TV said they do offer some protection to the wearer. The print on the ones I'm going to make are shades of blue like watercolor stripes so, at least, they will look chic. Always important.
Got the mop washed and blown dry. I put some oil on it and it's all shiny. My scalp has been sore--usually a symptom of the Whatever Virus. Feels so good to have clean hair. Gotta go style and spray it. It's a kinda dreary day today with breezes. Hope we get our rain tomorrow and Sat. I'm off to hunt for a bite of food. Hope all is going well for everyone.
