Yesterday was warm again, though not as hot as the day before. However, the humidity here in Central Pennsylvania was through the roof. I mowed my lawn, which is not that large. Twenty minutes of pushing my little electric lawn mower and I'm finished. And did I sweat much in that twenty minutes? Yeah. I was drenched.
The Body in the Loch is proceeding nicely. So far I've written over 14,000 words. I'm pleased.
I saw where Covid 19 is surging badly in Texas. Governor Abbott has said the rate of community spread is unacceptable. He doesn't want to lock down the state, so he's telling people to stay home. "Don't go anywhere you don't need to go," he's saying. "Wear masks." I though it rather amusing when he said "people here don't think it's as bad as it is." Well... why would they? That dumb shit has been telling Texans it's not that bad, and that it will go away for how many months now? There's a shiny blue lining hiding beneath his Conservative ineptitude.
And Arizona? They've just about reached the limit of their available ICU beds. He's another incompetent Conservative. The Idiot Jerk was in his state to sign a plaque on the boarder wall. The he spoke in a Cracker Jack Mega Church where they said they ionize the air to kill Covid 19. That don't work. But then they'll believe any lie regarding this virus. And they're saying all the cases we're seeing now are from Memorial Day... Keep in mind, those being hospitalized today were doing anything but social distancing and wearing masks in the 3 weeks since then. How bad is it going to get in Arizona, and Texas, and Florida? Really, really bad.
Finally, when the Pronto Plumber came, the dogs were very excited. I took a picture of Biggie waiting in anticipation for him to walk through the front door.
Sadly, for Biggie, the plumber stayed on the front porch.
