Update from Colorado End of Sept 2021



Up until the last month or so, the old people around here were happily not wearing masks in the grocery store because we were all vaccinated and we thought we'd paid our dues by staying home all those months and wearing masks whenever we went out.

And then Covid resurged and the ICUs are over 100% capacity with 90% of the hospitalized Covid patients unvaccinated. So in-person events like a bus tour of the wildfire damage on the western slope got cancelled, and as much as I wanted to get an in-person view of the burn damage plus the remaining still-beautiful scenery, I was also looking forward to the send-off coffee and doughnuts and a box lunch. I feel like Northern Water owes me that, and I'll tell them when I get a chance.

So now, thanks to the people who refuse to get vaccinated, I am staying at home a lot and once again have to wear a mask when I go out. I was going to get an apartment in town - a pied-a-terre - at one of those 55+ adult communities where I could spend time when the roads were going to be bad and participate in the group activities. But with the resurgence, they are locking the doors on the craft room, the game room, the pub, the movie theater, so I might as well stay here and wait for what comes next.

That would have been a good place to be during the worst of the winter. Too bad. Somebody is going to have to open a Covid Plague Bar, where all customers agree to put on masks like those ancient plague masks with a crow’s (raven’s?) beak, and drink through extremely long straws. Then we’d all sit in our crow masks and watch a show together, or something.

Come on down here--our governor doesn't care about a virus--our community room, pool are open--we have bingo nights, Bagel Saturday, etc.,--what virus? What masks? What social distancing? Let's just kill off all the old folks---no problem!!

That's what I need to do...go to one of those states that says it doesn't have a problem, and then I can go to Bagel Saturday.
