My brother-in-law is in the hospital right now.  He hadn't been feeling his normal energy levels for a few weeks, then a fever hit.  Hovered around 104-105 for days.....test was Positive.....he's quite ill, but not on a ventilator.

His test was done via a drive by method, throat swab; not the nasal swab.

Suicide is always such a tragedy.  May the family find peace as they struggle through their grief.  It never truly goes away.....my brother has been gone for 22 years.

Thank you oldbuddy for sharing the link to the song/video of:
 Kris Kristofferson - Here comes that rainbow again (1982)

What a great story told in music.

.......

"How much are them candies?" they asked her.
"How much have you got?" she replied.
"We've only a penny between us."
"Them's two for a penny," she lied.

Offers / Re: Corona will come to an end

This virus is a nasty beast.  I don't know how it will ever diminish ..... too many people don't take it seriously, they are offended that they might be required to wear a mask.  They feel their freedom is being infringed on.  No one can tell them what to do.
Frustrating to me that they think like this.
My brother-in-law is sick with it.  So far, at home with high fever.  I'm praying he doesn't get any worse and recovers quickly.

I am going to have MOHS Surgery (to remove skin cancer) next month and they told me I may have to be tested for Corona before I can proceed, but I don't mind one way or the other.

Wishing you great success with your surgery and that they get 100% of the skin cancer.

That is quite the story....remarkable that the kitty survived!  I imagine it is quite skittish now, or at least that is what I would expect after such an ordeal.

Off-Topic / Re: Do You Iron?

My daughter and husband do not iron.  When I helped out after they had their baby, I helped with their laundry.  They toss almost everything together in one load, washer and dryer.

I wanted to iron some of his shorts, but they don't have an iron.

Today I returned home from a few days at my daughter's house.  She and her husband just had their 2nd baby on July 4.  I went over and watched their 2 year old and helped out with what ever tasks my daughter wanted help with.

Since it was gorgeous out when I got home, I unpacked my bags, grabbed my son and the floaties and we went to the lake for a relaxing hour.

No, I generally get rid of; unless it is a very pricey item then I may hold on it for awhile for example like an appliance I tend to attach the receipt to the literature and/or warranty that came with it.

I do this too with appliances or tools that are spendy.  It's nice to have the receipt together with the warranty info.

I've been through several thunderstorms that have "rocked" the house.  It's kind of neat actually.

I haven't heard of a drive by funeral before either.  Such sad times.  I understand distancing and limiting the number of people to a degree, but wow, this would be an extremely difficult time to not be able to comfort others with a touch, a hug.

I like the Select-A-Size paper towels.  So often people waste 5 or 6 large regular size towels....they just yank off a large section.  Our poor landfills and world.

We are hot and summery....just the way I like it.  I know I am in the minority, but summer is my favorite season.  I love to be outside.  I am on my patio right now, umbrella open above patio table, breeze wafting across my face as I do morning devotions and then Fusion Cash.

I like Air Conditioning, to a point.  But, most places run the a/c so cold that I need to wear long pants and a sweatshirt.....NOT COOL.

Thanks for the inspiring story.

I too believe all things are possible with God.

I got off work early today and had high hopes of grabbing an inner tube and going to the lake to just float and relax.  It had been 80s all day.

As I walked to my vehicle, it started sprinkling!  By the time I drove several blocks, it was a downpour.  The water was running curb high in the gutters and semi-flooding the intersections because it was coming down so hard. 

Forecast says it will be sunny in an hour or so!
