Made our hotel reservations the other day for our Amtrak trip to Oklahoma City on the 25th. From there we’ll drive a rental to Higgins, in the Texas Panhandle, to see and photograph Russ Wheat’s tombstone. Which we had planned to do back in March, until the Chinese Communist Party’s virus intervened.
Takes about three hours to drive it, but Bar and I will enliven the trip with talk. With her seven to five work schedule five days a week, we don’t get much chance of that.
UPDATE: Now it seems we have another couple that wants to go. My OCS classmate Charlie Button and his wife. We’re coordinating it.
Finally, scientific proof that wearing a mask can be bad for your health even if you don’t catch the Chinese Communist Party Virus. Explains why I almost passed out the first time I wore one for an extended period at the grocery: lack of oxygen in the blood and buildup of carbon dioxide in the blood.
Of course you can’t get into a grocery or most other stores without wearing one and for liability reasons it’s doubtful these studies would persuade a store manager to step out of line. So, take deep breaths before and after shopping. And don’t just browse. I cheat and lift it for a breath when no one’s looking.
