I think today is dog washing day

Pictures to follow.

No reason other than it has been a while and both get medicated shampoo so it is good for them.  The allergies are not good for any of us and the medicated shampoo helps ensure that if/when they scratch the resulting infections don't get out of control.  Both are in good shape.  This is preventative.

And I've got a CASA zoom meeting sometime this afternoon.  Nothing happening.  Just a checkup.  All three of my kids are in safe places and doing well as can be expected.  They don't much need my help so I'm just remotely tracking.

Zoe woke me up at 6:45 saying that it will be hot today and wouldn't it be nice to go for a walk RIGHT NOW?  She's so considerate.  There will be a nap in our future today.

Yesterday I went to the store, our local great chain, HEB.  Typically there have been a few people who weren't wearing masks but the store does its due diligence cleaning carts and all employees wear masks so it has been OK.  Yesterday you'd be forgiven for thinking that there was no pandemic.  The workers wore masks, mostly covering their nose too, but less than half the people shopping wore them and there was nearly zero physical distancing.  I had to work at it to stay away from people.  My feeling is that the majority here, or a group approaching the majority, have decided that Covid is not worth changing their lifestyle over.

Of course about 20 people die every day in Texas from Covid and there are about 1800 a day new cases and both numbers are still climbing.  But we're not going to wear a mask.  Texas discovers Cause and Effect.

You'd think people would be concerned enough to wear a mask.
You'd think people would be concerned enough to wear a mask.

The gov'ment believes that it is up to individuals to do what they want to do in light of these facts.  Individual accountability.  Of course, this is a no motorcycle helmet and lots of guns state.  I had a neurosurgeon tell me that it was a great place to practice with the gun and helmet laws as they were.  Lots of head trauma to work with.  So we have some history here.

And I have a nice inventory of masks which I'll continue to wear and I'll find a better time to go shopping.
