It amazes me that so many people obediently wear the masks everywhere they go. My state has a very low number of new infections on most recent days. Three out of 60,000 is the ratio. I have a better chance of being murdered (1 in 11,000) than I have of catching Covid-19 (1 in 20,000) on any given day. My doctor thinks I would survive it handily even if I did.

probably there are a lot of other diseases that people aren't catchignow because of the distancing and the masks.

Mr. X ---> I spent a year dead for tax purposes. It worked so well that I'm going to do it again.

Aren't you in Florida?

I thought Florida was, like, the latest apocalypse-crater.

Yes, we've deferred reopening our village until Sept. I wouldn't be surprised if there's such an increase in cases that we cancel opening.

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

Maybe it can be averted by having the pubs serve only drinks with at least 70% alcohol? (bring your own wheelbarrow)

"Aren't you in Florida?" [Mr X]

Florida Sailor is in Florida. I am in Boston, mass. Baron Grim is in Texas, I believe.

My Niece-in-law has a stepmother who has a mobile home in Florida, but she is in Seattle now, I believe.

I'm between Galveston and Houston. I point this out because "Bob" forbid someone thought I was from Dallas. smiley - winkeye (There's an infamous rivalry between Houston, the fourth largest city in the country, and Dallas which everyone thinks is bigger. People from Houston constantly dis Dallas. People from Dallas are mostly unconcerned with Houston. smiley - laugh

The only other active Texas resident here I know of is Gosho. But he mostly just posts his weather reports (from Austin and elsewhere) anymore.

Well did step into a local cafe today..it's a large establishment so I felt comfortable with the social distancing. However other establishments being smaller I won't be visiting them as the distancing is very meagre.I'd require more spacing.

I have happy memories of sipping coffee and eating a fancy pastry at a small cafe in Dedham Square before the Coronavirus ensnared us all. I miss such simple pleasures. I would walk the two miles to the cafe, sit at a table to enjoy my treat, then walk back home. A good four-mile jaunt, with a reward in the middle.

Much of what makes the world enjoyable has been killed by this virus.
