I've been in isolation for the past four days, feeling somewhat decent, considering I have Covid. I have a neighbor down the creek who got it prior to the vaccine being readily available and she has been to the ER twice, so I feel fortunate in that regard. I've got minor aches, tinnitis, slight fever and a daily headache, but no loss of taste, or smell, and no chest pains or trouble breathing. I chalk that up to the fact that I got my shots before contracting the damn virus. Still can't figure out where I got it, although, there was this one old cowboy who wasn't wearing a mask and insisted on shaking my hand. Normally I would have given him the gratuitous elbow bump, but he was so insistent. I thought, Oh hell, what are the odds?
Well, pretty good actually, looking back on it.
Wonderful Western Women With Attitude
Daily Whip Out:
"Hopi Matriarch With Attitude"
Spent some of the weekend noodling angles on how to illustrate our cover on the Wonderful Women of the Wild West that would show the diversity and the range of all the crazy females who made the American West what it is today.
Daily Skethbook Whip Outs:
"Women With Attitude, Oh, We've Had A Few"
Every woman I have ever loved has had attitude. My grandmothers had it, my mother had it, every one of her sisters had it, my very first girlfriend in Kingman had it and my wife and her female offspring definitely have it. So, what is that?
Part of it is in the eyes. You can just tell they are not going to put up with any of your bullshit. Period.
"A strong man can handle a strong woman. A weak man will say she has attitude."
