ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 29

I am wondering if I might be among the first civilians to be eligible for the covid 19 inoculations?  .Do I come under the heading “ elderly “. If I get the shot or shots, if you need two, but no one around me gets them for months,what happens .What are the ethics involved. ? Do I stay here and get the vaccine. Do I have to register in Florida to get it. Enquiring minds would like to know.  I think I will still have to protect myself. I don’t even know what I will do when I can again go out into the world. There are a lot of “ things “ that I have found that I can live without. To occupy time, I haven’t used my time to learn a new skill.  I thought that  I would, but I get distracted easily. I read book that are not that meaningful or  insightful. Mindless is a better description. I do play my ukulele. The same songs over and over because I  like them . I even played Happy Birthday  into my son’s answering machine on his birthday. I take twice a day walks with Dixie. We have a routine. I am trying to get a few lbs off of her, so we have easy walks and harder walks. I think she looks the right weight. The first month I had her, she gained a lot of weight. I bought a scale, but I’m afraid for both of us to get on it. I don’t want to know what either of us weigh. Since my clothes feel the same, I’m thinking that when we come out of hibernation, we will be just fine. Today, I ordered warm gloves, a hat ,fleece pants  and warm socks, and good shoes. I read that January was the coldest month in Washington. Since I am thinking that I will still be here, I want to be ready. Dixie already has her winter sweater. It’s basic black and looks really good with her pearls.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
