I made it through Friday, the 13th ok. Whew! But today is the Ides of March, bad luck day (well for Julius Caesar anyway).
So far today:
Two “presumed” cases of Corona have turned up in my tiny town of Alvin, TX. It seems two individuals went to the Chili Cookoff at the Livestock Show and Rodeo in Houston (before it was abruptly closed down) at the same time a girl visiting the rodeo from NY and later tested positive for the virus did, and they MAY have touched something she touched. Who knows? Hopefully, the symptoms these two individuals (same family same house, now self -quarantined at home) will be tested soon, and it will turn out to be seasonal allergies. Pine and oak pollen are at high levels today, and we are self-quarantined already to avoid the pollen in the air. Yes, we have runny eyes, sneezing, coughing, but it happens when we go out to get the paper (which is full of awful news) or put a book or toy in my Little Free Library at the end of the driveway.
Here is what I’m reading today as I wait for the Support Center at my university to offer me tutorials to learn to teach on line.
In the meantime I am in touch with a few of my students through good, old-fashioned texting. I am soooo glad I gave them my phone number. And, yes, students, those three assignments due March 17th are still due then. Submit them through email. LOL
