Dad’s Alaska

Vodka equals sanity.

3 April 2020

A day of being useless. Spent the entire day watching television. Red Green and Jay Leno Headlines on Youtube. Later in the afternoon I started watching ‘SWAMP PEOPLE’. I’ve gotten out of my chair to go to the bathroom, take Miss Suzy to do her business, to get food and/or drink. I don’t think I can continue this foolishness. I am going to have to start doing something. Pretty much anything. The under floor project is on hold because I don’t feel like swimming through the mud. I am holding out hope that it will be well below freezing soon.

Summer and her friends are going for long walks during the early afternoon. She is painting some stuff in her new bathroom and that precludes my working on the sheet rock finishing. Can’t have that dust getting into he paint work.

The temp today has been about 40F so the snow is melting and the water is running under the house like white water rapids. Same as yesterday it is a real mud pit under there. Monday morning seems to be the, according to the weather forecast, will be well below freezing.

A beautiful winter sunset.

I still do don’t have the Wuhan Flu. The majority of America does not have the Wuhan Flu and are unlikely to even be bothered by it. And yet… here we are all still locked into our homes by the government and an unjustified fear. Yesterday I admitted that it might be in your best interest to stay home. However, it isn’t in the best interest of America for us to cower under our beds from the government or the virus. The main stream media hype is making this seem far worse than it is. They report every death but they don’t produce a single report about the people who have recovered. By doing this they are intentionally scaring the living crap out of virtually every American. Here in Alaska we have had only 3 deaths and an unknown number of cases. Chances are there are hundreds of people that have the virus and the death toll in minimal. All of the deaths were people that had serious health problems already. As it is there is no way we can develop any kind of ‘Herd Immunity’, if we continue to “shelter in place”. Herd Immunity is the only way we are going to be able to get past the so called ‘pandemic’. If we wait for the government to develop an injection to fight this we will go through this several more times. It will be months or maybe over a year before they develop an inoculation that will be safe for humans. If they rush this injection they may kill as many people as the Wuhan Virus. Since this virus seems to be killing fewer people than the current influenza strain, it is time for Americans to go back to work. Of course, anyone showing symptoms needs to stay home with their family, but the rest of us need to go back to work. Each of us has a choice. Do we sit at home on our asses or we get back to work. They can’t put us all in jail and we can tie up the courts for years on constitutional grounds. Make you decision. I’ve made mine, I’m going back to doing whatever I damned well please.

An October noon.

Life is too short to waste it cowering under the bed or watching 10 hours of TV.

Well, I’m through whining today. Y’all be careful and as Red says “Keep your stick on the ice”.
