Covid-19 Hunker-down Log Signing Off – Stardate 44129.34

Autumn Morning near Crested Butte, Colorado

This will be my last scheduled “Hunker Down” blog entry. Here we are some seven and a half months into the pandemic and there’s no light at the end of this tunnel. Perhaps a vaccine for COVID-19 will be available within the next six months, but I’m not holding my breath.

My family has done well. None of my family that I’m aware of has been infected by the virus. One of my friends and his son did contract the virus a month or so back and both made it through okay. We’ve been lucky, but a lot of that luck has been a result of our diligence to not contracting or spreading the virus. In our house, we still follow the rules we created at the onset back in March. It’s been difficult but one does what one has to do to get through hard times.

We’ve been preoccupied with thought and action regarding our home in Red Feather Lakes that was and is still threatened by the largest wildfire in Colorado history. Other family members have been forced out of their homes as well, and luckily nobody has lost their home yet or even worse, suffered any casualty.

This winter is looking to be a dark season for everyone. The election is a little over a week from now and the political nonsense has grown into something evil. The bottom line is that I’m backing up, taking stock of our lives here and concentrating on the things that matter the most. I’m tired of dealing with and reading about all the idiots, so I’m leaving them to their fate and with no concerns.

It’s difficult to keep writing this blog as life has been like the movie Groundhog Day, with every day, more or less, being a repeat of the day before and the day before that and so on. There’s really nothing to write about and my inspiration has left me. There’s nothing left to say.

We’ve done our best and will continue to do so.

My best wishes to all my friends and followers for the future. Maybe we can rid ourselves of the criminals running our country in the upcoming election. I’m skeptical.

No first responder activity to report.

Still alive and well here in Denver.
