Subject: RE: BS: Check in Mudcatters world wide
Thanks for this thread- feels like old times. I am OK - in a week or two - Who's counting? - I'll have been in self isolation for six months. Started on March 11, but of course the last few months have been far more restrictive than the first two had been.

Nothing much has changed. Still painting and drawing, working on my annual calendar for my daughter and half a dozen other people.

Lovely KT is still picking up my groceries a couple of times a month so I want for nothing.
My daughter in Washington state and I stay in touch by text and once a week or so we Facetime.

I lost my one remaining sister to covid last month so now it is just my one brother and me left out of 9 kids. Told him (he lives in Oregon) the other day that I don't want to be the last one left alive so he has to take good care of himself for awhile ye!
I also lost a friend in Virginia to the virus. What is amazing how fast a person can go from relatively good health to just plain dead. My sis in Oregon went from OK to gone in 8 days, five of them in hospital My friend Irvin went in 7; he died at home after the doctors said they could do no more for him. Thankfully neither was put on a ventilator.

Sinsull, thanks for the update on Kendall. I have wondered how he is.
JennieG, he Alaska String Band (Zahasky Family Band) was touring in Australia when they got the news from our government that Americans should go home.They had a small problem getting back in but they cut the tour short and made it home in April.

Someone onf\ FAcebook said that this New Year' Eve they're going to stay up 'til after midnight- not to see the new year in but just to make sure the old one leaves!
