I'm sorry but that just disgusts me, I can't help it. I could say some rough choice words, too, but I won't.
I know, I get it and locals were thinking of thier livelihood at first---- for some spring break is 75% of their annual income. The rest coming from Summer tourists. -Gypsy

I had to get out today to get more supplies and groceries. My doctor actually called all my medications in to the pharmacy so I didn’t have to make a trip to her office. So I had to go to CVS to the drive through & the woman was wearing gloves & talking to me through that little telephone speaker thing. I gave her my debit card and she sends a clipboard back with a pen 🖊 to sign the receipt. I said I’m sorry but I’m not touching the clipboard much less using the pen. I got out my Lysol wipes and signed my name with my own pen. I never use theirs, even at the doctors office. After she gave me my debit card back, I wiped it down with my Lysol wipe. We should do this extra precaution & when having to sign the electronic thing at the grocery stores when I use my card, I use a Lysol wipe and wipe it down before I will even touch it, even though I wore medical blue gloves today. Those people were not staying 6 feet away anywhere I went. I got dog food and these young people were laughing about all the places they’ve been today and said they weren’t worried about getting this virus. That made me mad & I said you might not care now but how would you feel if you learned you brought it home to your family & something happened to them? They looked at me like I sprouted 2 heads and was laughing & looked at me. I said I think you need to get away from me before I lose my patience with you & forget I’m not a violent person. One actually coughed my way before they walked away. I was livid & some just don’t care. Hubby is laying down now and says he doesn’t feel good. I’m thinking OMG, is it the virus or just his cancer? Either way it’s not good 🥺 I saw where some China doctors have come in other countries now to help them control the virus, but that’s horrible because didn’t this start in China? I think something is fishy over there about this virus, just my opinion. Walmart had no kind of paper towels, toilet paper, wipes of any kind and now the market is limiting milk, bread, so many everyday items to a limit of 2. Please be safe & protect yourself anyway you can, they’re some lunatics out there right now unfortunately. The dollar store actually had the paper goods. And the schools have cancelled the proms here and the church has cancelled all group trips and cancelled lots of service.🥺 You’re all in my thoughts and prayers, Ginger 💛💛

Ohhhh! My Ginger 🧸

I am so sorry you had to deal with those spoiled snots!

They're going to find out...the hard way. Not accepting it isn't wise, because facts have a way of hitting one in the face. HARD.

AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS, IT'S MOST OFTEN RIGHT WHERE IT HURTS THE MOST!

I am praying for you and your family!

Oh how I wish we all lived in the same town.

I love you, Ginger! 💞🕊🌺🕊💞

And thank you for telling them what you did. They're definitely going to find out. Sooner than they think.

Also, I agree with you about that offer from China.

Makes me want to say: "Oh, no thank you! You've already done QUITE enough!'

Okay score another one for my team, Alabama! LOL Seems a doc at UAH, this time, is the one who studied the malaria in the countries that have it and discovered the connection that In those countries they don't have the issues the same with this virus, and so this body of research is where it comes from that we are trying out the preventative meds for malaria on the covid-19 patients. This time, go UAH!

And my thoughts about the China thing, I believe in the bible, and in order for end times to eventually happen, it means the US would no longer be #1. So I read article somewhere thru this that Italy newspaper reported that plane took off in China with med stuff to help Italy, however USA response was lights out, Italy will not forget this. This is what Italy newspaper said. So, first of all what should we have sent? Things we need to save the dying here, or med peeps we need to save the dying here? idk Anyways, now China is over at Italy like the saving big brother or something? I don't know what is going on, but the winds of change are shifting. I am no fanatic, just a believer. Am not going to worry over these things, am just looking up and going to be ready. Come Lord Jesus, come. May be tomorrow, may be 200 more yrs, but am gonna be looking up and be ready.

Ginger my prayers are with you and your family. Also Caticus, am very thankful procedure went well and all Is good at your house. Peace be with you. -Rolltide

Sorry RS. I have my moments as time moves on in this thing. I don't ever mean to bring folks down, but as I am isolated now and live alone, other than talking to neighbor on phone, this forum relieves anxiety to post. I will be here and be strong for anyone I can, but I have to let it all hang out sometimes and be real, in order to then push on through. Our confirmed cases continue to grow, and we have our first confirmed case in the very county I live in now. And u know the video that have shown on tv of spring breakers on the beach? well is state next to ours and bet ya half of em were from my state. Don't they have family that love them, or don't they have older family that they love and care about? It just beats all I've ever seen. And why didn't Florida close the beach to spring break? Apparently they valued a little money over people's lives. I think those drunk doping folks that were on that beach should be quarantined in FL, and if they have the virus, FL keeps em until they are well, and takes up their bed space and infects their elderly. I don't know if I really mean that or not, but I think I DO! LOL Anyways, am keeping the peace. -Rolltide
There's nothing wrong about the truth & this certainly isn't the time to sugar coat. People NEED to stop pretending, listen to safety guidelines & heed them! Everyone's life is at stake.

I can't believe people! I know a couple (40s) who are at this moment planning a trip to FL soon (for fun?) Really?...ignorance is not bliss!

I'm expecting to hear of someone in my county to be positive any time. I'm sorry it's so close to you & hope you have enough supplies so you don't have to be out & about.

I LOVE this forum! I want updates from you & everyone on what is going on in your world because I care. Other posts about other things help take my mind off the chaos surrounding us all & I enjoy the escape...if only for a short time.

@Rolltide
Love ((hugs)) & prayers💞

By the way, we don't have as much stocked up as some do. We do with food and soap and such. But we are lacking in the TP area. And we aren't worried about that in the least. My parents lived through The Depression. And I've run out of TP before, many times, eons ago.

It's not as awful as people think. You just use your own wash cloth and wash it thoroughly afterwards in hot, soapy water with a bit of bleach, or even cleanser if you don't have bleach. Or just the soap and water works fine, too. They say the soap actually can work better because the virus can't live in the oils of the soap. Then you hang it up to use again. Or, you make rags and later wash and dry them after use. You can keep them in a bag inside a small trash can with a lid after use. It's really not difficult.

I don't understand why people are freaking out about toilet paper at the stores. We have very low flow toilets here and can't flush our TP anyway! We've been using trash can liner bags with metal trash cans with the foot opener for YEARS. And, we camped a lot growing up. Of course hand washing is extremely important, but is a cloth so different from a handful of TP? It actually works better!

:lol: Oh Catticus u r cracking me up! Too funny!

For the sake of this virus thing, want to put this out there for those who need it. This virus sheds into your fecal matter. So if someone is infected, when they poo it has the virus in it. Just wanted to make sure everyone keeps this in mind. And when u wash with soap, the reason they say if at home soap is better than sanitizer, is because it is the friction of rubbing that cleans off your hands. Since there is no anti-viral soap, I wouldn't know about that part, but wash ur hands, wash ur hands, scrub all the parts, for at least 20 seconds!
