My wife's schoolmate is a nurse.
Her husband died of the virus, the first fatality in Kansas. 
She was in contact w/ him and began to show symptoms.
Her son, an MD, had to fight like hell just to get his Mother tested.
She is positive.

Doesn't give one a lot of hope when the local (quite large) hospital has a patient die and then discover she has the virus.  Oh yes, they had not been wearing masks and now they are trying to track the 80 to 100 workers that came in contact with her during the past week.  So, it is a good time to stay out of hospitals if you can.

"So far virus free bird"

Well, virus free or free range...it hasn't affected your ability to tell a good story and I appreciate the heck outta that.

I hope everyone here stays well (assume my higher temp is because i was out in the sun today after our storms last night).

Anyone remember the lines to get Polio vaccine when Salk came out with it?   We'll probably have the same thing if they come up with a good one for Corona.

Good to hear from you, Jennybird*, and glad to hear that you're hanging in there in the mountains.  Strange that your neighbor is the first case in the county.

I've been fretting about what's going to happen when the virus starts getting out to the rural areas.  Yes, the cities have been hit hard, and people are forced to be closer together, so transmission is easier; but they've also got a more robust medical system.  In counties like yours, Bird, with one family doctor, and, if there's a hospital at all, it's the size of a McDonald's, well, it's just scary to think about.  I just hope that the peak has passed in the cities, so that the medical folks there can take a deep breath before heading out to the rural areas to help.

when I found these in my garage that they were the same as the window washer's hardware posted here last week. But after comparing  the two mine are not quite right. These may have a  similar use. "Close but no ceegar" Any ideas?

It is great to hear from you anytime, Bird !
Glad you are virus free and doing well. My wife and I are doing ok and staying home except for one or two necessary trips to town.
We really miss seeing our grandkids, but it is wise to stay safe. I was in the hospital two weeks ago and was tested for the virus with a negative result.

Please keep us informed of things your way, we love our Bird and her ramblings !

I have wondered just what kind of bird you represent.  After that last blog it might be a talking crow, or maybe a black buzzard. It appears doubtful that it is a bluebird of happiness.  On the other hand there are thousands of birds that you might be, such as a Carolina house wren.  Carolina house wrens like to nest on porches, sheds and other places you mention.  Last year one even nested in my tractor.  Good to hear from you again bird, take care and be careful. :grin:
