What a sad state our country has come to that we can't discuss science or common sense without it being labeled "political" and being censored.

-1, windchill -14 this am.

For those fearing being too close to #27 dropping her calf this morning, running from old Apex the bull, or chipping ice from either stock tank we have an alternate vaccination plan:
Roll down your windows (yes all of then) , slow down to 15mph, & drive downwind (it's only 25mph now) past the 1/4 million head of cattle in the feed lot a few times.

That'll help your immunity blossom.

When we were first married, my DW (city girl that she was) had never been near a feed lot, much less down wind of one.... We visited Uncle Clyde and Aunt Lilly, who owned a dairy farm. We got to their house about 2PM, just as Uncle Clyde was walking out to the pasture to herd the cows to the milking parlor. Aunt Lilly hugged my new bride, invited her to come with her to the barn while Uncle Clyde and I went the other direction.

To make a long story short, when we got back to my parent's home, DW stripped off everything, it all went into the trash as she wrapped a towel around herself (on the back porch) and headed to the bathroom. She took, what I believe, is still the record longest shower in Kentwood history.... Needless to say, her "immune system" was not only shocked, but "boldly enhanced" that day.....

No longer does it bother her sensibilities when we drive past a feed lot or a cattle auction barn.

Kind of different out here on the Prarie isn't it.

Windchill last night was -25.

Still have our unit in brother's building as we finish work from 23k miles in 10 months last year. Should be back on the anti c-19 road after celebrating ourv 60th anniversary later this month. Gets boring not being on the road.

It sure is different working on a farm or on the range.

Having grown up working on a diary farm, I was not only used to milking twice a day and cleaning the milking parlor after every milking along with cleaning the barn lot and hauling that "aromatic, black liquid earth" to the back of the pasture after every milking, all while wearing knee high rubber boots. When we visited Uncle Clyde and Aunt Lilly, as my uncle and I left for the pasture to herd the cows to the barn (they already knew we were coming and were ready to head that direction, so it was more "us opening the gates" than actually directing the cow's travel) I put on rubber boots as I knew what was ahead. My "brand new bride" having never even touched a cow's tail, was "woefully unprepared for what she was going to encounter". Wearing her white Keds tennis shoes with pink ankle socks, a gray skirt and a pink blouse, I questioned if she wanted boots and her reply was, "No thanks"...

Anyway, the only way into the milking parlor is to go "the long way around the barn" or "wade through the barn lot"... So, her "introductory path to the milking parlor" completely contaminated her, from the soles of her white Keds to her knees with a few "splashes in other places".... The rest of that afternoon "spiraled downhill, rapidly"...

Needless to say, sitting on a blanket that covered the seat in our car, she was not a happy camper on the way back to my parent's house... It took almost 50 years for her to be able to laugh about that event and as far as I know, she never even went into the back yard of my aunt and uncle's house, not even to the chicken coop.

I little different:

Having worked on autos for the last 40+ years, DW had no idea what dirt and grease was until we started sharing the same address.. Needless to say the first time I came into the house she sent me back out to the garage to strip down to my skivvies. Even now, 27 yrs later, I am not allowed to come in with my dirty clothes. She even makes comments about making me a sandwich and me eating it with the added flavor of grease. I have to remind her that I dont want to wash up, eat for 2 minutes and then get dirty again.. SO she quit making me lunch which is fine with me. WE ALL know what happens after you eat

My DW knew from the start that that the smell of acrylics, epoxies and lacquers
smelled A LOT like house note, kid's shoes and school clothes. And once DW started her career at the federal prison I also learned that night shift, odd hours, holiday turns and everyday dangers also smelled A LOT like new cars, stock investments, vacations and utility payments.
I'll bet that every last one of you has a story to tell that starts something like this: The smell of dirt and grease from the (fill in your own) oil patch smells just like....

Wife and I both have our first shots and will get second in about 2 weeks. Glad to have them if only for piece of mind. We have two RN's in the family and the virus is real as they witness daily. They both had minor symptoms after second shot that lasted about a day and a half, so not looking forward to that. Kinda like getting a flu shot for some.

BTW, I worked on a dairy farm for 3 years in high school. I was a city boy until we moved to the country. I milked, cleaned, hayed, grew 20 acres of corn and filled silage silo's and everything else that goes with a dairy farm. It was a great experience, but would never want to be a dairy farmer for a career. Got used to the smell and the "debris" on me and in my car. Brings back a lot of memories when I drive by one and get a wiff …..

We got our 2nd shot this morning. Like BrooksFam we want them for peace of mind - just like getting a flu shot. I didn't get the flu but began taking the flu shot at 65 for the same thing; peace of mind. I'm not phobic about the covid bug but taking the vaccine can't hurt....and they're behind us now. Went out to breakfast to celebrate afterwards. I'll update if we have any reaction to them.

Good luck to all that want to get the shots. I hope your locations are as well organized and on top of their game like they are here - it is absolutely seamless and very quick; literally in and out.

We also had our shots Wednesday. Great execution, very well organized, and exceedingly polite/friendly. Probably in excess of 50 workers all toll, two lines and smooth as silk!
