Walking the Dogs

 

This afternoon, for reason immaterial to this post, I decided to take the dogs into a local city park for their afternoon walk. Not a long walk, about a mile. Nice park, baseball diamonds, jogging trail, pool (shut down ‘cause covid), playground area. The “city” population I’m guessing at 1,500. It’s the county seat for a county with a population of 7,000 but Tennessee helped with the finances.

So on the way back to the car with the two dogs, I see that people are gathering for baseball practice: mom, dad, the kids. Made me feel good. Then I noticed something that caused me to slow down to look closer.

The children, both boys and girls, were about the age of my grandson – say 6 or 7.  It was clear, humid, and 86 degrees: All the kids wore masks. Not me, not the parents. The kids. No, not catcher’s masks.

That’s just wrong.

    My wife said, “Your mind is in the gutter.”

    I replied, “That high?”

    Just stole that and put it in the toolbox.

    Damn Fauci and all these other public health “experts” who spin like a weather vane to explain their changing and wildly unscientific positions.

    You can stop after “Damn Fauci” . . .

    Earlier today I saw a lady wearing — I swear I am not making this up — an “I ❤️ Fauci” mask.

    Bet she has matching underwear . . .

    That is just so Stad!

    My wife said, “Your mind is in the gutter.”

    I replied, “That high?”

    That’s how you were able to look up and see the underwear.

     

    That’s how I stay young – I think like a hormone-charged teenager . . .
