Can't Do It In One Day

We are getting closer to a working vaccine to address the Coronavirus. Not everyone will want to participate. Many are skeptical about it.
 
The logistics to roll out the process are very daunting. What is the best way to administer it?
 
One state official suggested having a National Vaccine Day to allow the public to get the shot.
 
The problem with this idea is having a sufficient quantity of the vaccine in stock and keeping things orderly at the site. That could be a challenge.

No Room For Them

I have not flown in 20 years. I can't imagine what it must be like now.
 
The US Department of Transportation finally did the right thing and prohibited all emotional support animals, other than dogs, from flying with their owners. They will now need to be checked like luggage.
 
There will be some unhappy people, but the majority of passengers and flight crews will welcome this change. It was getting chaotic on some flights.

Negative Thoughts

I organized a bunch of photos from the early 1970's. Some were taken using a Poloroid Swinger camera and others with a Kodak Instamatic.
 
A number of the Kodak 4x4 prints have lost color. They don't look right. Film and processing was different back then.
 
I wonder what the negatives would show now in a reprint.

Time To Weigh In

I bought a new scale the other day to weigh myself. I tossed out my old one which was about 50 years old.
 
It was working fine, but just looked real bad. I tried to clean it up, but there was not much of an improvement.
 
This one is digital and only cost $20. It probably won't last as long as my old one.

One Day Is Enough

I don't usually have any leftovers when I prepare a meal. When I go out to eat, I clean my plate.
 
A health report on the news today advised people to finish their leftovers from Thanksgiving which was four days ago.
 
That seems like a long time to keep things. I only hold them for one day. Food spoils faster than people realize.

December Golf

I played golf yesterday with one of my golfing friends. We were able to play 13 holes before daylight became an issue.
 
The temperature was 50 degrees at 3pm. It was a nice day to be out there.
 
I will try to play again with them, but the window is closing as Tuesday is December 1.
 
It's always a bonus to play in December.

More Turkey

It seems like I have turkey only three times a year. I like it, but never eat it other than holidays and a road race that serves up a turkey dinner to participants.
 
I was just looking at the website for a local turkey farm/retail store.
 
It's time to take a trip there and buy a few things.

That Crazy Virus

It will be interesting to see the public health implications of people gathering together for Thanksgiving in light of the Covid warnings.
 
We are lead to believe that so many Americans will die before Christmas.
 
Will that happen? Nobody knows where this virus is headed.

Birthday Wishes From Them

It was my birthday today. It's always great to have another one. We only get so many of them. It's good to hear from people.
 
It made me laugh when I got birthday wishes from one of the banks that holds my credit card.
 
Am I suppose to feel more positive about them?

Being Paid To Wait

Some people willingly pay money to others to wait in lines for them. We see that all the time for ticket sales.
 
New York City has stepped it up by with people being paid to hold a spot for a Covid-19 test.
 
With waiting times as long as four hours, some are charging up to $80 per hour for their services.
 
Only a select group of people have the money to do this. Everyone else must wait their turn.

2020 Stuff

It's always good to throw out stuff.  We all have too much.
 
People throw out so many great things just to get rid of stuff.

Fading Away After 57 Years

When President Kennedy was assassinated 57 years ago today, it was the biggest news story in my life. I was ten, but the event gripped the world over the next four days.
 
As years went by, it would be remembered by the media.
 
Time has caused it to fade into the background. There was little mention of it today.
 
One would need to be at least 62 in order to have any recollection of that day.

A Feast For Geese

I have not seen any Canadian Geese in the last few weeks of playing golf. One hole has a small pond that attracts them, but they have left.
 
I drove by a corn field this week that was inundated with them and feasting on the remnants of the harvest.
 
It was amazing to see that many.

That Old Wood

My neighborhood has many stately old homes with great architectural detail.
 
One big old house is looking good tonight with its vinyl siding. The job was done so quickly.
 
In the end, they just covered up a lot of rotted wood that should have been replaced.

Trees Standing Strong

Leaves hide the flaws of trees. When they fall to the ground, we can see the health of them.
 
Some have limbs that need to be removed before they fall and harm people and property.
 
It's either now or they fall during a storm.
