Have you seen the Lori Lightfoot memes?
I made a trip out yestersday to pick up a dozen chocolate-chip cookies from a local coffee shop/restaurant. They closed last week, but this week they offered order-ahead-and-pick-up pastries and quarts of frozen soup. It’s on the honor system; brown bags of product are labeled and on a sheltered table outside the door, and payment goes into a slot-top box inside a table-top trash can. The bag of cookies is marinating on the porch until it is safe to bring inside, probably tomorrow. The only other thing I touched was the flag on our mailbox. For everything else I used the sleeve on my coat (and washed my hands thoroughly when I got home.) Instead of going to the drive-up window at the bank I mailed in deposits for two of the entities I am treasurer of. First time for that.
We are one of only eleven counties out of forty-two that have no confirmed cases of coronavirus/COVID-19. There was one unconfirmed case, a farmer in the southern part of the county who quarantined at home and has since recovered. The lack of cases is another benefit of living in the boonies. Just a matter of time, though…
