I was furious when the governor announced opening TX and lifting the mask mandate. It looks Alabama will lift theirs on my birthday.
"We should have a choice!" is what many say. The people who say that... how many of them will choose to wear masks? This is different than seatbelt laws, that some still fight. My mask keeps YOU and me safe! And Texas is lifting the mandate, as it reopens 100%.
But we are still in Oregon. So I'm not going to think about it right now.
This is the window of the cafe, where we picked up carryouts. Things are a little different here.
When we went on a walk with Heidi and Baby Charlotte, I had to smile at this Masked Moai!
We wore our masks as we walked in Laurel Hurst Park. Everyone we passed wore masks. We don't have to mask up when outside. But just like the RBG image in the store window... it shows respect for those we pass on the walk.
We have less than 2 more weeks of Oregon.
I'll miss the trees. I'll miss being in an area where most seem to respect pandemic courtesy.
But mostly, I'll miss this little one and her parents!
Stop in California
Don and I don't know what our options will be for vaccines when we return to Texas. We at least know how to "road-trip" safely. We've had practice.
We'll be making a stop in Sacramento to see Scott and Chali. No worries about those 2 not taking this pandemic seriously. This is what you see on the wall, when you enter their home.
I'm so grateful to have family that's in agreement, about keeping each other safe.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 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. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
