    One of our local attorneys sponsored a 40 k trip out there air fair, house. bike rental the whole deal . Radio add says follow them on facebook. Thought it strange a lawyer would post potential evidence online. Imagine coworkers get sick from guys partying online.

    That`s why I was hiding in a place with no internet, not a chance to get a virus online!.

    We'll never know, those 20,000++ will be dispersed all over this country and will not be tracked. However I will be surprised if the panic loving news doesn't find one somewhere that dies and that will be a big story for awhile. I hope not but still..
    But it seems more and more I am personally learning of survivors of covid. Met one this morning, he said he's been over it for a month now. No after effects, I'm guessing he is mid 60's.

    It was so stupid that all they talked about on the bought and paid for news was sturgis. They never mentioned the 21 people that got shot in Washington. The biggest mass shooting in the u.s this year and nothing on the news.

    Well, I'll just say they couldn't put that on the news because it doesn't fit the agenda of the moment.

    The Candytown MC vintage and modern trials September 12th & 13th have been canceled. There wasn't enough interest for checkers and the club didn't want to take any risks. Plus those of us who officiate the events are in the high risk group. I believe this is the first year in 50+ years there won't be a trials at Candytown. The only upside is, we already have sections picked out and mostly cleared for next year.

    So my daughter has 4 kids in Elementary School and one in the 8th grade. She lives on a large ranch. First week of this virtual learning, they could not get connected with the satellite. This week all was good, but the oldest could not get logged into first period. She had emailed the teacher each day and my daughter had talked to the principle too. So today at about noon a Sheriff shows up to do a wellness check. I feel for that cop as she is MY daughter. The Cop, the teacher, the Principle and his secretary knows my daughter real well now. By the way she lives on the former Governor`s family ranch. The Kings.

    No, that would be the Legendary Texas King ranch. But the King ranch in New Mexico is about 170,000 acres. The King family has been well respected in our state politics.

    Day 35 update on my Harley friend.They thought they might have to put a tube in neck because of swelling in Throat. This was from being on respirator so many weeks.Swelling went down now and is breathing some on his own and sometimes with oxygen mask.Started physical therapy today to get his muscles working again.They cranked some disturbed(rock music for those that don't know rock)to help get him going.He said no goat herder music to the nurses. Things are starting to look up but going to be a long haul. Other friend that has it just gets tired easy and fever comes back if he does to much.Road his trials bike then had to sleep.He is hiding out at his deer camp to stay away from people.Being a healthy man most likely kept him from getting knocked down hard like my Harley friend.

    Those cars aren't six feet apart. You're doomed.

    A lot less cars in rural NY. This was a couple weeks ago, getting tested before my Colonoscopy.
