Congratulations! I’m sorry. Get a clue.

March 22, 2021

get-a-clueI don’t know about you, but I can’t over-estimate how much I’ve learned over this past very difficult year.


For those of us who made it through the pandemic and all its challenges, a big pat on the back. We made it and if you followed recommended public health practices to stay safe, like wearing masks, staying home and not traveling then I send you a gigantic virtual hug! I speak to several friends weekly–and have, all through the pandemic–and oh, how we boosted each other’s spirits! We hung in there, together, and there was very little complaining. Same with my phone friends and neighbors. So hey, it’s a pretty big accomplishment and we did it!

I’m sorry.

If you lost someone to Covid or any other reason during this pandemic, know that they did not pass alone. That the spirits of their ancestors and others came to greet them and walk them home. I am so sorry for your loss and the huge void I know is left behind.

Get a clue.

If you decided masks were “too hard” and staying home was even harder, and you are still alive, you are lucky. You played the odds and so far you’ve won. However, you’ll never know if you were responsible for anyone else’s death by being a source of  transmission. If you believe that masking is the government trying to control you, I must tell you that you have a screw loose somewhere. And because of that, you have lost your mind. I suggest you find it because living the rest of your life without it is going to be difficult.

If you believe in Q or any other crazy thing, if you follow that ridiculous man who used to live in the oval, if you made fun of Champ, the Bidens’ senior dog or if you did any other thing that most living and breathing people with a brain and a heart wouldn’t think of, if you are one of the Faux News or Faux christian sheeple….please crawl back under the rock you came out from.

Thank you. That is all.

    I just don’t understand the mask thing at all. Is it too hard to wear shoes into a store? Where’s the proof that barefoot cause diseases? Do you really need it to know it’s impolite to go tromping around public places barefoot?

    Don’t even get me started on the Christian part of this political nightmare. OM-everloving-G.

    I love a person who speaks the truth. Great post.I think it was South Dakota that had the mask burning ceremony and now their numbers are up. Basically, people are DUMB.

    • With a big fat capital D!

      Idaho had a mask burning ceremony not long ago, on March 6. Kids were encouraged to throw masks into the fire, “Teach your children well , . . “. I don’t think people in South Dakota did, if only because I don’t think there was ever a state wide mask mandate in S.D. I believe the governor decided it was a matter of “personal choice” so no reason to protest unless a particular city decided to require masks-I don’t know if any cities/towns did.

    I’m nearly there, Carol! Scheduled to schedule. (Does that even make sense?!) I’m in the queue to get my call to get my appointment. (The first way was better!)
    I watched a video of a man who stoodd up in a busy restaurant full of unmasked people. He asked who would be getting the poke and NOT ONE SINGLE HAND WENT UP!!!
    Wisdom is limited, but stupidity just seems to go on and on and on!
    As far as Christianity goes, I will stick with mine–be faithful, be kind, do what the Saviour would do, and please do your research and be smart for the good of everyone!!!

    I agree a thousand percent! I’m so glad you have been able to stay in touch with friends during the pandemic. It is such a help! Take care.

    I love your honesty. Couldn’t have put it better myself about those who will not mask. And yes, I believe our loves one who’ve passed are there to help us over Rainbow Bridge.

  6. You tell em!!! Great post and stay healthy

  7. Making fun of Champ was more than I can take. Kudos to all who played by the rules and hope those who didn’t will see how selfish they were. It takes a village and in this case a nation and the world.

    I don’t understand the mask thing either. I live in Florida where “Florida Man” is a real thing. And he tries to compete for the Darwin Award on a daily basis. It’s quite frustrating.

    What’s hysterical is the actual number of people being banned for life from Disney because they come in with a mask (can’t get in without one) and then once in, they take it off and refuse to put it back on and start screaming about their rights while they are being removed by a group of security and cast members. Imagine spending all that money to show people how stupid you are.

    First shot done, second shot schedule. Still masked and hopeful.
