Well, the signs are everywhere. In the waning times of sweat pants and Zoom shirts, I bring you a respite—and a few observations—about the travails of the re-emerging.
Travails From The Re-Emerging
Albert Baggetta, from Agawam, Massachusetts, saw a problem and fixed it. If only more Americans would do this in the reemerging, I think our country would be in better shape.
"I tried to find True West magazine at our local Barnes & Noble but it was buried behind a bunch of other mags, so I was forced to bring the batch to the front, so others wouldn't have a difficult time finding them."
On The Covid Front
It's been seven weeks now of mild symptoms and after a hearty regimen of super vitamins and selected medicinal herbs, I am still in the same place, which is discouraging, but given the horror stories of others who got the dreaded disease without having the vaccine, I am very thankful. But, if I had to choose today what the title of my memoir would be, this would be it.
Daily Whip Out: "All Hat, No Cattle"
For me, it's always been about the hat (I own hundreds) and to be honest with you, although I come from a prominent line of cowboys, I have never owned a cow. Not even an FFA (Future Farmers of America) cow. Not one.
The Elusiveness In The Re-Emerging
One thing I have not been able to effective land is the framework of narrative flow.
Daily Whip Outs: "Narrative Flow Studies"
One of the symptoms of Covid is a foggy brain and a fever. That's what produced this.
It's been fun, but we're done? Meanwhile, this is one of my favorite memories:
"Calm down! We're just asking you to wear a mask. You can still wear your pajamas, and leave your bras and teeth at home."
