- There are three what appear to be yearling trumpeter swans cruising the open water on our lake.
- I don’t remember ever seeing trumpeters before.
- Also one Canada goose.
- Have seen way too many of those over the years.
- Far too early for the loons.
- Loons typically arrive the day after the ice is gone.
- Apparently loons send a scout ahead to confirm their reservations on our lake.
- Who knew?
- I was premature when I said last Saturday that I was recovered from the upper respiratory thing I had.
- Spent a good share of the past week in bed.
- Perhaps just lazy, but more likely taking longer to recover than previously thought.
- Definitely not covid-19, though.
- One case reported in Wisconsin, but it was in or near Madison, a four-plus-hour drive away.
- Elder Son, the family practice doc with a master’s degree in epidemiology, told us last week that we should plan to hunker down at home for a month or so if the coronavirus appears to have spread to our area.
- He was pre-echoing what the news media said later in the week.
- We are now the proud possessors of a six-week supply of toilet paper.
- Still need to acquire a few more bottles of generic Robussin.
- And cough lozenges.
- We have gone through quite of bit of those last two items in the past couple weeks.
- Hoping we can rely on Chewie.com for cat and dog food and litter.
- Smokey already has six (6!) bags of dog treats.
- Also hoping we can rely on Amazon Prime for any other necessities that we forgot to stockpile.
- What exactly are “pre-existing health conditions”?
- When one reaches our age, one is most certainly going to have “pre-existing health conditions”.
- Does high blood pressure count?
- How about high cholesterol?
- Type 2 diabetes? Stage 4 kidney disease? Eczema?
- No pulmonary problems, though.
- I think we are good for another month or two.
- Younger Son decided a few weeks ago to spend a long weekend in New York City just for fun.
- That is where he is this weekend.
- Sure hope he remembers to wash his hands.
- No way to avoid crowds in the Big Apple.
- I am not a worrier. Until I am.
