The only problem for Ted is it’s really hard to cover his mouth and nose without covering his eyes. I did my best, but the mask crept up anyway. His little button eyes are there, but a bit hidden. He is reminding everyone that no matter how frustrating this is — and trust me, I REALLY understand — there’s probably an end in sight. So hang on, wear the mask, stay home and don’t get sick!

  1. Well the bear had the smarts any way!! I was at my eye doctor’s today and he said that the vaccine is two weeks from launch at the major health center he works for (the University of Utah Medical Center). They’ve got a vaccine and are inoculating the ‘front line’ workers first, then the patients who are elderly or ill, in the convalesce stage of things. He said (which alarmed me) that the ICU at that Medical Center is at capacity, with 95% of inpatients there on ventilators. They’re coming to the point where decisions about pulling the plug is a major issue because so many more require the same level of care. He said by summer the vaccine will be available to the population in general. Yeah. An end in sight and perhaps we can breath “easy” again one way or another? That bear is DARLING, and what a nifty idea!


    • Somehow, summer seems sooo far away right now. We are expecting our first winter snow before the weekend. We live in “the slot.” We get SO much snow, we dwarf the amount they get in Montreal and almost get as much as Maine, but only in a very bad year.

      It’s bad here too. Boston is still OK because they have so many hospitals. Medicine is a very big business in Boston. Hospitals and colleges. We get a lot of both. The vaccine MAY get to the medical workers, but until all those local pharmacies get special freezers, we ain’t gettin’ nothin’. That really worries me. Well, this IS my first pandemic.


  2. I’m not worried about teddy. It’s everyone else without a mask…


    • Yes. I thought maybe Teddy could offer suggestions to the idiots who think because more people survive than die, they — at 77 with a heart condition — will do the same. Occasionally, we get calls from some of Garry’s old colleagues. They spend the better part of an hour blowing up at the world. Sadly, “the world” is not on the line, just Garry. Afterward, they feel better. These guys were (mostly) reporters. They know how to find accurate information, but they are old and long retired. I think they’ve forgotten what used to come naturally.

      Grandparents are the worst. They are so afraid that this is becoming permanent, that they will never see their grandkids again. And I get it. I really do. We are undergoing a surge in this state, too. Rhode Island, 4 miles down our road, three if you head due south, has gone to code RED. It’s bad and it’s scary and the vaccinations can’t come too soon.

      Protecting the elderly is important, but not just those in nursing homes. Old people are temperamental. And grouchy.
