Small town where wife grew up (and parents still live there) made it to August with zero cases of Covid.

Then it started.  Now they have several new cases every day and deaths are coming.

She knew 4 of those who have died just in the past week.

Her Mother reports that many people have just given up and take the attitude that whatever happens will happen and nothing we can do about it.

Well, I must be 'deluded'... along with all the health workers, carers and management who are trying to keep hospitals, old folks homes and other institutions  functioning whilst risking their health or lives for us ..

Anyone surprised that two elderly men can prolong an election for such an extended period of time ??

Wife asked this morning: When are we having sex?

I said:  Let me check the weather forecast.

Why ?

Wife has female cousin living in Italy and married to Italian man.
Italians, along with most all Europeans have political views that would be considered left wing in USA.
(Note: I say this because it has been stated here by those living in Europe).

Wife had long Skype talk with cousin yesterday because it was cousin's birthday.

Cousin said her Italian husband asked her to ask: 

"Why did Americans vote Trump out?  He did not lead USA into additional international wars, he forced Europe to increase spending on our own defense, he led USA into great economy before Covid, he had plans to halt illegal immigration."

Wife replied:  Because stupid voters here who vote based on personality rather than policies.

That's something for a Ukrainian to say, given the Trump administration's less than enthusiastic attitude toward Ukraine.

'Those' being ..examples, please..?

I wish Sandro was still around to remind you that northern Italy has quite right of centre 'patriot' support. Germany has it's AfD, Greece is locking up Golden Dawn supporters involved in murdering immigrants, France has its FN and the UK has Farage, et al

1/ He oversaw a continued presence in E.Syria - withdrawing against the will of Generals there and in 'Kurdistan'

2/ The economy was already great ...

3/ He plans to build a wall and get the Mexicans to pay for it ? ;)


One wonders if Wifey's cousin watches too much Fox

Be sure to watch this program.
Quite fascinating covering all the nominations from Bork to Barrett

After the Bork defeat in 1987, a young Mitch McConnell gave address in which he said the Democrats would forever rue that day.

It took Mitch 33 years to finalize his revenge.

I had never heard this particular phrasing, but once when Trump asked Mitch how he was holding up regarding Kavanaugh, Mitch said:  "I am stronger than mule piss."
Probably those of you from the south have heard this before.

I served 4 years in U S Navy.  Army-Navy game usually one of best games all season.

But today . . . .

1) Navy couldn't score on 4 downs from one yard line.

2) Had a touchdown called back for holding.

3) Failed to make easy recovery of Army fumble wherein Navy guy could have walked into end zone.

4) Fumbled ball in their own territory leading only touchdown of game; by Army.

5) Were tackled in own end zone giving 2 points to Army.

6) About the only thing they didn't do was send some of their gals out in Dallas Cowgirl outfits.

Note: This last comment was totally uncalled for and made without any knowledge of the looks of said gals.

Has my annual medical 'session' today.
Because of Covid, they wanting to curtail number of people actually arriving.
So they called last week and asked if I would be OK with a phone 'session,' which I agreed to since I have no current health complaints.
It was to be of two parts:  First RN would call and go over the standard check list and review my medications for refills needed.  Then MD would call to verify that I wanted and needed the meds and ask what questions I had, etc.

So I have had a standing prescription for Cialis.  Actually I haven't filled it for over 10 years.  I got it when I was meeting with several women on my trips and wanted to have it on hand if I felt a 'performance problem' due to anxiety, etc.

The RN and I had a very long and friendly talk about many things unrelated to my health; she was working from home and I guess was not pressed for time.

When she started going down the Rx list, I was surprised when she saw the Cialis and said: "You still sexually active?"  Presumably she thought I was too old.  I said: Yes Ma'am.

She said: I can't even find men in their 50s who are interested in sex.

I didn't even know her name and I never encounter the same RN in my annual visits; and have no idea what she looks like.

Of course I could probably get her fired for such questions and comments . . . but didn't bother me a bit.

Later, when I talked to the MD, he was also talkative and working from home.
I had only seen him briefly once before when he was assigned to me last December, as my long-time MD was retiring.
Turns out he lives not too far from me and went through medical school with the MD I sold some real estate to this past summer.

Wife has been wanting White Christmas.

Supposed to be light rain most of day 24th, turning to snow around 9 PM.
Snow flurries all night and up to 10 AM or so on 25th.
So seems like she will get her wish, although maybe not a lot of snow.
Downside is that our high temp for next two days will only be 20 F.  Ouch !!

We have been eating a lot, and will continue through the end of year.

Then, she says, we will go on a strict diet !!
