“A New Pandemic”
Yeah we’re stuck with old pandemic also, and the new. Black Lives Matter to me. The cop that killed George Floyd, and now they’re looting our Nashville streets! I hate the cop who killed George Floyd, it’s a disgrace, but the uproar that our town, Heaven help us! I know why they did it, but the looting and everything. They did it to prove a point, BLACK LIVES DO MATTER! They did it so things wouldn’t be forgotten about, they did it so someone wouldn’t sweep it under the rug! Enough of that! It’s a beautiful summer day in Nashville, the trees have all bloomed out, the pool is running and the TICKS are out! I don’t get them on me, but Glen does, probably cause he works outside all day, and I stay in my pool! Mmmmm! We won’t have a Wheeler reunion this year, because the Great room is closed and the pool is closed! First time we began 22 years ago! We’re not having a reunion in LaFollette, TN for the first time in over 40 years! And we’re not having a Shoffner reunion because people weren’t showing up! So that’s it for our reunions till next year. Next year will different, we’ll have the Wheeler Cousin’s Reunion!
It’s been a while since I’ve been on the last post. Let me start off with saying, I had a stroke, it’s left me with “Aphasia.” That means that I’m intelligent, but I have trouble speaking. That doesn’t mean that I have trouble singing, but it slows me down a bit. I can’t sing anything fast; like “Muleskinner Blues.” All of my other functions work! It’s that speech that I’m worried about! Enough of that!!! It’s the Covid-19 that I’m worried about now. I have only been to the Post Office, the drug store and I went to Wal-Mart twice! I keep my distance and I wear a mask and gloves. It’s been weeks since we’ve been out!! I know it’s rough on you too! I don’t know what we’re gonna do about Mother’s Day! Oh, my daughter just came over (she brought me a gift, she lives next door), and she’s not gonna be here tomorrow (it’s Mother’s Day) she’s going to his parents, so that leaves my two sons. She’s got a new job. She was a nurse at Summit Hospital, now she works in Madison Patient Placement Coordinate! So I don’t have to worry about her so much! She worked in the Cath Lab, when she worked at Summit. This Corona Virus is getting the best of me, this staying at home is killing me! It’s not going to be a Happy Mother’s Day, it’s going to be cold! It’s going to be down in the 40’s and then it’s going to be 70. Happy Mother’s Day to you all!!!
