Don't forget to rest.

Glad you are on the mend.

Covid, we are learning, is a weird disease. The obvious risk factors like age and certain underlying conditions were figured out pretty quickly, but those don’t seem to explain why two people, seemingly similarly situated, can have very different outcomes. The initial “dose” is believed to be factor. Researchers are also starting to find genetic characteristics (of the infected person) that seem to make a big difference. But I don’t think those are understood yet nor is the typical doctor’s office is able to screen for them.

Day 4 - a little more congestion and fever came up a little. It's currently 99.5. Otherwise, no body aches or shortness of breath. I'm reading that day 5 sometimes is a turning point to go south. So far though, it's been a non event. More later.

You do more while sick than many do while feeling healthy.

Kudos to you.

i know a healthy bad mofo..el paso policeman.

he got and felt like a bad flu was about to run him over..then it wasnt at all like a bad flu and he woke up in the ER with oxygen being pumped into him. i think he is okay, last i checked..but he cant even do normal exertion without needing a nap.

i want to go down with this with the lucky ones. to the powers that be..i promise not to diminish the fact that the virus kicks the ass of some people.

Thanks Don - knives are a new/old hobby. I recently left the food service business and semi retired. I was always intrigued by sharpening methods. Decided to try my hand at adding/shaping scales to premade, pre heat-treated blanks and have discovered it's very enjoyable.

I want to get some steel bar and a couple more pieces of equipment to try my hand at making the blades.

I've certainly been lucky so far but the potential for this to go south hasn't escaped me. Not knowing is scary but there's nothing else I can do except take the vitamins and pray.

I'm not aware of anyone I've been around that came up positive but that doesn't mean anything. Had I not had a temperature on Monday morning, I may have dismissed this was as fall allergies. I suspect there are a lot of asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic carriers who are contagious.

I wouldn't jump to that conclusion. Masks help reduce spread but certainly not fail safe.

Your assumption is incorrect.

This virus laughs at your puny masks.

This State (WA) has been beyond OCD on mask wearing.


And... the virus doesn't care. - it's coming back strong.

I think your avatar needs updating to something more appropriate:



Carry on.
