My friend's husband has covid.

He developed classic symptoms. He went to the immediate care nearby and tested positive. He is quarantining in the upstairs of their house. She and her daughter are downstairs.

I have known her since she was in high school. She used the library all the years I worked there. She is past forty-five these days, and a lifelong resident of our small town.

She is a hairdresser. I always thought it would be awkward to go to her. I used the only other beautician in town, who became a friend. That lady has since lost her business. My husband and I were supposed to get haircuts tomorrow. We have not had haircuts since March. That is no big deal. We can wear ponytails. I just hope my friend's husband will be okay.

If he gets worse, I don't know where he will go. Our rural hospitals are very full.

1. Home.

If there are no field hospitals, the only choice is home...for people who have one.

2. A neighbor friend died of COVID on Saturday

I can't believe it...unreal. Especially so since we are all out of circulation and were not seeing each other anyway!

Sandy welcomed us to this tightknit rural community where she grew up. She never showed any distaste for an outsider. She was kind, generous, gracious, warm. Even when her husband had a fling that resulted in a daughter - the child became Sandy's daughter, too.

Her husband may now have COVID, too. Hits very close to home.

Goddess bless and comfort all who are in the line of fire of this virus...all of us, in truth.

5. Sadly, many in this ruby red community need to

have it hit close to home to believe it is a true threat.

7. Hairdressers fought the closing

as did many private contractors who I guess never save?
