Classified Ad:  Wanted: the sun. That big golden orb that comes up once a day, shines brightly, warms things up, and goes down when I’m exhausted at night.

Yes, that one. It’s missing. I haven’t seen it lately. It’s almost nine am and it has yet to make an appearance. What is up with that? OH! It just dawned on me (pardon the pun), it’s in QUARANTINE! I get it. Now I understand. Okay. I feel better. We’re all in this together and that includes the big guy up in the sky. It’s amazing what you can get through when you know you’re not doing it alone. My four year old granddaughter walked in the door and told me her mommy’s phone lied to her. It said it was supposed to be sunny. Ha! Exactly.

My youngest grandchild is about to turn two years old. How did that happen? She is such a character, and she wears all of her thoughts right there on her face for you to see. You definitely know when she doesn’t approve of what you’re wanting her to do. She also is a budding jokester. Good luck to her parents. (giggle) Being a grandparent is SO much fun.

I have to say, I’m getting tired of hearing all the whining about quarantine. Shucks folks, if you think this is house arrest, you really should read some WWII history. There are many historical accounts out there to give you an idea of what actual house arrest is like. This ain’t it! I can suggest several really good books, such as The Book Thief by Markus Zusak if you want an idea of how really good we all have it right now. I am not by any means discounting the suffering from loss of jobs or the death of loved ones due to Covid 19. This is real. Which means it’s time for those of us that can – to pitch in, donate to food banks or similar charities helping ease other’s suffering. Let’s be part of the solution.
