Pandemic Diary Day 14: A Horrible Time, Healing Humor, Bob the Cat












Dear Diary,


What a horrible time to have the most inept president in American history...

I'm very concerned about the elections in November. Election officials and voting experts are warning that the coronavirus pandemic is already threatening the safety and integrity of the presidential election.

There's talk of a constitutional crisis. We must have the elections (we managed during the Civil War) on time.

The only way I can see of insuring a safe election is by mail. Currently, only five states hold all of their elections by mail. The state I live in, Oregon, Washington State, Colorado, Utah, and Hawaii. 

Those other 45 states need to get on the bandwagon fast. I predict Republicans in some southern states will push back at the idea for political reasons. Especially if the Imbecile in the Oval office wants his buddy Putin to interfere in his favor...again.

**I love The Rolling Stones hit song "Can't Get No Satisfaction." Here's a great video of a family singing a parody of it: "The Sanitiser Song"

**Have a cold one!

Now you can drink like a Mexican drug kingpin too, says his daughter Alejandrina Guzman (pictured), whose company has developed a craft beer dedicated to her infamous, incarcerated kingpin father Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. 


**You've got to eat it, to beat it! 


That's the philosophy of one Hanoi chef who is attempting to boost morale in the Vietnamese capital by selling green, coronavirus-themed burgers.

**A wet week ahead as weatherman predicts more spring showers. That's okay. We need it.

**Not a good sign. There's been 65 new cases of the coronavirus since yesterday. The state count is now 479 cases. And growing... 

**New State of Oregon PSA: "Stay Home! Don't accidently kill someone!" I guess that's pretty straight up!


**Introducing Bob the cat. He's the baby of our little group of animals.

Ways Bob stands out from the group:

He's the heaviest (outweighing both dogs).

He's a shy guy and spends a lot of time in his bed in our closet. When he comes out to visit it's for food... or fun. Or both.

Every night he and our other noctural predator Oliver (our blind cat) have a great time playing and getting into stuff.
They get so loud at times that Mollie (our Pug) - who sleeps with us - wakes up barking and runs into the Livingroom...

… a habit I can't say I've gotten use to yet! Mr. Bob is a sweet-natured guy whose so passive he allows Oliver to bully him at the food dish.

His favorite sports: Eating. Napping. Nocturnal Olympic Games (various events).
Time to sign off. Another day gone by during the Great Pandemic Crisis of 2020.
