How to Survive the Pandemic
How to survive the Pandemic? Simple. Get vaccinated.
Over 600,000 fellow Americans have died as of March 12, 2021 due to COVID-19. I do not know about you, but that number of deaths representing family, neighbors, and friends. Is hard to wrap my mind around. I grieve our collective loss.
My COVID-19 Vaccine Update
It's now March 2021, and on my daughter's birthday I'm happy to say. I received my first COVID-19 vaccine. My second course of the vaccine was completed early April. I along with many neighbors were able to have the vaccine. Our community organizers did a super job, and the clinic was professional and organized.
Spending much time at home we have not been idle. Tracking the wildlife that passes through the yard and forest trails are everyday activity with use. We recently captured this beautiful member of the Cat family posing for the camera. View here at our YouTube Channel.
