Wednesday Walk

When you have worn out your shoes, the strength of the shoe leather has passed into the fiber of your body. I measure your health by the number of shoes and hats and clothes you have worn out. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Walking helps to clear your head. It is a good exercise – physically and emotionally. Many doctors are now recommending that you go for walks, instead of jogs, because walking is easier on the knees.

I am lucky to have a beautiful walk route. The route is pathed with plants, flowers and animals that made the place their habitat.

This is one end of my route. I turn back at the bridge.

This is the other end of my walk route. PCN on the road stands for Park Connector. Routes like this one runs through the island connecting all the parks.

Jasmine trees and bushes dot the path. When they bloom, the air is filled with their beautiful scent - especially in the early morning or evenings.

I have no idea what kind of plant this is. It looked like they were blooming.

I have that effect on all living things too sir Vincent, they get away as fast as they can! You're making people jealous with your ability to get out in the open and walk, quite a blessing to have that and such a nice route also!

I think by now most lockdowns would have been lifted to some degree, and people are now free to go out and have a wander. :-)

You didn't have a problem do you? I guess you are free to wander at your farm.

That is true sir Vincent, most people can get out now. No, our lifestyle was not affected except that Mrs. J. has to wear a mask at work which is not very fun.

Wearing a mask is the new norm. She will get used to it after a while. :-)

Howdy today sir Vincent! But this new norm is just temporary isn't it? I mean, pretty soon the virus will no longer be around right? I hate to think that we will have to wear masks for the rest of our lives!

Yes, the mask is only until the virus is eradicated - until the country is free of infections. However, given the attitude some people have towards the virus, I believe Covid-19 is going to be around for a while.

Howdy today sir Vincent! Yes sir, like those dang Texans thinking things are fine now. They said today that we now have 5,000 infections a day because people think it's not serious or is over. Most being infected now are young people under the age of 30.

They said in a few weeks the hospitals in Houston will be overran with patients. But there's no way people are going back to being in lockdown, we'll have to see what happens.

Things are close to back to normal there? I know y'all are more sensible about these things!

I am so pleased to hear that you have more sense than most Americans. I read some of the posts on here and I was wondering whether Americans are getting more stupid by the day, or is it their egos that are getting bigger by the day. They obviously think they are more clever than the rest of the world. I don't even have the heart, nor do I bother to comment. Let them find out the hard way.

I thought lives are cheap in the third world. But obviously, they are also cheap in the first world. Money and freedom is more important. But what good is money and freedom to you if you are six feet underground, or worse, in bed fight for every breath.

Pardon my rant. I will stop before I get too carried away. I am normally more composed than this. haha...

Howdy sir Vincent and sorry for the outrageously late reply! That was a great rant and I agree. I don't know what the polls tell about people's beliefs concerning the virus and returning to everyday life but I think they just think it is worth the risk to get back to work and making a living.

Today in Texas the governor issued an executive order that everyone has to wear a mask in Public and hopefully that will help slow our record infection numbers.

As far as Americans getting more stupid by the day, that may very well be! lol. I mean, it's only common sense but many reject it as some kind of evil plot to gain control over the population.

But as many variations out there about the virus, the one thing that health researchers all agree on is that masks work!

Howdy Jonboy.
Seems like the 'little flu' is making a second wave in the states. Over 51,000 cases in a day? wow!
'They' laughed at the world for going overboard with the prevention of the virus. See who is laughing now.
I am glad you are not like the rest of your countryman.
Have a great weekend!

Howdy today sir Vincent! Well, I don't know of anyone who laughed at the world for going overboard but I'm sure some did. I think this country has been about 70% in favor of the restrictions and lockdowns.

The good news is that the death rate continues to fall so either the hospitals are getting better at treating serious cases or the virus is weakening. We never got out of the first wave though. I don't think there will be a second wave.
