In the morning.

Sunday morning coming down.

I thought that this would be a good Sunday morning picture. It took some doing to get it here. For some unknown reason the file was too small. It filled about half of the normal space. So, I resized it. It fits fine now.

I have no idea why or why not. It’s just one of those things. Sort of like making a picture on the run. Don’t think about it. Just do it.

I guess that it’s about time to discuss CoVid-19. That’s the illness caused by the coronavirus, which is really almost every respiratory virus that we catch. A common cold is a coronavirus. Seasonal flu is also a coronavirus.

Even though there has been no Covid-19 detected anywhere near Louisiana, there are people already starting to wear masks. I saw them as I was running errands. A friend of mine reported that after arriving at LAX, the international airport in Los Angeles, California, almost everybody was wearing a mask and the airport was much less busy than usual.

Settle down folks.

Masks don’t protect a person who is not ill. They slow down illnesses from spreading via airborne droplets.

The best thing you can do is wash your hands fairly frequently. If you are going to use some kind of hand sanitizer, it must be be rated at least 60% alcohol. I suppose you could clean your hand with a good whisky.

Down here in swampville, we are all coughing and hacking. Are we sick? No. Just allergic to high counts of pollen and grass seed. Supposedly, this is at an all time high, lasting from now through November.

You can clear out line of shoppers by letting your allergic nose and sinuses do the talking and muttering, “I shouldn’t have gone to China.” Or, Italy. Or, Iran. An Italian friend of mine who I met here on WordPress is from Milan, Italy, which is shut down. She’s lived in London for about the last twenty years. Her mom called and told her to stay away from crowds of people. My friend asked, “Do you mean Chinese?” Her mom replied, “Italians.”

All black humor. That’s how I deal with things like this.

Don’t panic. Don’t worry. Plan a little. Relax.
