Who Did Not See This Coming?

On June 30th the Oregon Governor lifted most COVID restrictions. Since then Oregon has seen a steady (if not better described as exponential) growth of COVID cases. Needless to say anyone with half a brain could have seen this coming. Fourth of July parties commenced, people gathered maskless and too many of them remain unvaccinated….

Kinda Back to Normal (sorta)

I haven’t posted anything since Oregon “reopened”. Honestly I’ve been a bit busy actually resuming something resembling a pre-covid life.
