I used to just clean out my purse, when I felt a little overwhelmed. It was a quick way to feel like I'd gained a little control. Now, I hardly use my purse. Today I cleaned out my cluttered phone instead.
Weighted Down by Photos
Since Covid, I started a bad habit of taking photos of the TV. "Wow! What did they just say? Let me snap a pic and remember!"
But my phone is filled with irritating reminders, that I need to forget.
I want to forget that Trump begged suburban women to like him. He said he "saved their damn neighborhood". He asked, "Do me a favor, suburban women, would you please like me?" How gracious, that he said please.
Speaking to the Crowds
This image from October 23 was from The Village in Florida. Why are senior communities thinking it's fine to gather in these unmasked crowds.
Obviously these people aren't all old. But I hardly see a mask in the crowd. Can't Trump kindly encourage them to put one on?
Voting in Florida
When I saw this image of Trump voting in person, I wondered why he didn't wear his mask like everyone else.
We all know that Trump has voted by mail for years. This year he's made a huge fuss about the corruption of mail-in voting, so I guess he has to show up. He flew across country to cast his ballot in Florida. Some in Houston are driving an hour, just to get to the one official ballot box in the county.
Biden has been teased about wearing a mask and being dramatically cautious. Even Melania has made cracks about Joe hiding in his basement, while Trump is greeting his adoring crowds at rallies.
I want to thank Biden for keeping his distance and playing it safe. Having massive rallies when there is a pandemic, just makes no sense. The report above shows how many may have died, as a result of big gatherings.
Covid is Still Here
Just because there's an election doesn't mean we can forget the pandemic.
Of course lots of people still pretty much think this is a hoax. Or that they are immune. Or that they are strong enough to handle it and who cares if they give it to someone who isn't strong enough. Trump says "We're rounding the turn" on coronavirus... while the virus is spreading faster!
Is it Safe?
It's worrisome enough that you might get infected, standing in line to vote. Don and I stood in an indoor line for 2.75 hours. But there are also agitators, intimidating people at the polls. Some places allow guns. This is creepy.
A few days ago, the police ended up spraying a group that was marching peacefully to the polls. There were children and elderly folks in that group. This seems like a bad dream.
I've seen a Trump Train or two. I guess that's what they call a line up of trucks with Trump signs and flags.
A couple days ago, a Trump Train surrounded a Biden/Harris campaign bus. It was just a few hours from our home. A video showed a near accident. Some of Biden's events were cancelled because of it. Trump tweeted, "These patriots did nothing wrong." All in good fun?
Saving This One
I'm deleting these photos and I'm saving one for a bit.
I think this sweet woman in the colorful scarf and hat, is 104. She voted for Biden. She also survived Spanish Influenza in 1918! This is the kind of photo that makes me smile! I love this woman!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
