And so the weekend begins with an announcement from the CDC. My second dose was on March 6, so I am considered fully vaccinated. However, as with every rule, there are exceptions. Under the guidelines issued by the CDC, employers can keep the restrictions in place. I will find out this morning if the very large, orange aproned retailer I work for is going to maintain the wearing of masks. Even though there is a mandate in place now, stores do not enforce the rule. Making money is much more important then the safety of the staff. Still, I will take a picture of my vaccination card along as proof, since the card provided by the VA is too large to fit in my wallet.
I got a lot done yesterday, including the first wacking of the weeds. I have flower buds all over the place. Color will soon be abounding. I do like spring. Everything begins to come out from winter's suspended animation. True, there is maintenance work involved, but that applies to every season.
Yesterday's announcement by the CDC came as a surprise to many, not to me. I realized a long time ago there are basically 2 types of people in America: the winners and the losers. Winners understand the challenges and adapt in order to survive. Losers, on the other hand, cleave hard to the old ways. Winners understand Covid and understand what needs to be done. Losers rely on a card catalog filled with excuses and lies to prop up their denial. Winners will get a booster shot when required. Losers? They will whine about only having 8 - 10 months immunity... and refuse to get vaccinated. Winners will survive to live another day. Losers will prove will prove the accuracy of Darwin's Theory of Evolution. The CDC's decision is letting Losers do what they do best: Lose.
