Yesterday afternoon, my dog was barking uncontrollably. He wouldn’t respond, so I went out and he was face-to-face with a bear who was about 15 ft from our wire fence. I shouted at it and it just stared at me. I clapped and jumped and it took off. There was a nervous few seconds. My very good friend’s wife died in the night. In the morning, I learned that a young man, a former student, and his mother died of Covid-19 the day before. I ended up in urgent care with an eye issue today. I went to my local pharmacy to pick up a prescription, then took a walk where I got attacked by two large dogs. I was bitten, but it did’t go through my sweatshirt. I’m sitting in my easy chair and having a drink that was one of my friend’s wife’s favorites and I’m not leaving!
