SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Thankful

 

 

 

~~~~~

 

Thinking of this week’s theme I decided that

I was thankful for reasonable good health.

I have also decided that I am thankful

that our first grandchild is progressing well.

Finally, I think the whole State of Victoria is thankful

that today was the first day since January that

we have been COVID free.

SUNDAY STILLS PHOTOS: Thankful

  1. Congrats on the first grandbaby! That is so exciting. I have 4 grandkids…oldest is 15, youngest is 6. Then I have a granddog! LOL! Happy to hear about a covid-free day is. That would be an anomaly here! But, Trump is almost gone and I believe that we will get back to normal within a year.

    • Thank you for the grandchild wishes. No doubt there will be some publicity when it does arrive…probably more when/if it makes it back to Australia. Things are looking like settling down over your way, which will be good for all.

      • Settling down…you mean Trump has finally let Biden in on the daily Presidential briefings? or…COVID. Not COVID! We are getting ready for another outbreak that probably won’t settle down until March or April. Ugh! I so want to see my grandkids but not a chance. I’m sure we will be seeing more of your grandbaby in the coming months. They have these 4D ultrasounds now that is super cool but I can’t remember at what week they do those. I’m so out of the loop! LOL!

      • Fairly certain I was thinking politically…from what we are hearing and have experienced, winter is the worst season for COVID transmission.

        4D…definitely haven’t heard of those scans. I doubt if we will hear about for a long time..if at all. It was around 12 weeks when were told the news…and then only because our son wanted to tell us. DiL had told her parents several weeks earlier and still didn’t want to tell us. 😕😕

      • Yeah, with Thanksgiving and Christmas, plus New Year’s Eve on the horizon, it doesn’t look good. People are stupid!
        We have the 4D & 3D ultrasounds here and they are so advanced and really cool to look at. Why didn’t they want to tell you? Confused!

      • No. 1 Son keeps his cards close to his hest most of the time. Just the opposite to No. 2 Son and DiL. I’ve been told that NZ has ‘a better hospital system’ than Victoria does…hence the Auckland birth.

        30 days COVID free today. No new Cases or Deaths. In July we were at 700 new case per day. Still social distancing is being ignored by some and they will be the squeakiest if restrictions are not further eased or if there is a third wave. Still March vaccinations may help quell a third wave. Yep! They are down here as well.

      • I want to move to NZ. I hear they have the best of everything. Put in the mountains but near the beach. Perfect! Show me the birds! LOL! Florida reached 1 million positive cased today! In 9 months. 1 million! Florida! 1 million! Not the whole US, just this peninsula! Sorry, I got fired up. Sorry it took so long to write back. I’ve been super busy with the shop. 🙂

      • NZ is a beautiful country. I’ve been there three times and loved each visit. 1,000,000 cases….and here Victoria was having a heart attack when we had a week which topped out at 700 new cases per day, in July/August. 😊😊

      • Florida has a population of over 21 million people but that is a pretty high percentage if you ask me! Doesn’t mean it is all residents though. Considerably larger than Victoria per capita, but still….I hope to visit NZ one of these days. 🙂

      • Quite a bit of difference. We haven’t even gotten to the real surge. Our governor sucks! He has been so far up Trump’s butt that he has put Florida at such a high risk.

      • 😀 Well I am not going to upset any of my USA readers, Lisa, suffice to say that it is the first time I can ever remember such bitter election result, since we tossed out the Labor Party in 1975. Liberals-Coalition won around 75% of seats. If memory serves me correctly around two-thirds of unionists, Labor’s Core, had to vote for the Liberal Party to achieve that result. Four years ago I was sure Hilary C would take out the top job..we are a long way from what goes on in our respective backyards….however, I was wrong.

        Presidential pardons are a bit of a concern also. News services are wondering why the Trump family needs a get-out-of-jail-free card up their sleeve?

      • Well, we thought Hilary would win too and she did win the popular vote. She could she have done any worse than the last 4 years, NO! I almost said in my last response…Do not pass go, do not collect 200 or 200,000 dollars. Go directly to jail! We are on the same wavelength! And I don’t care who I piss off. Trump has to go and that big white door can hit him in the ass on the way out! But we had crowds at the beach tonight for a parade even as Florida had over 10 thousand positive cases today and 3 days in a row. WTF? He seriously sent the wrong message and continues to do so. That’s part of the other 74 million Americans that voted for him.

      • Nothing like a good old chuckle to end Sunday, Lisa. 😀 One thing is for sure he is not leaving graciously according to our news services. You know, a while back I used to admire the look of American Presidents…they all looked Presidential. Many of our recent leaders did not look Prime Ministerial. Hopefully the family (Trump) is not lining up for inauguration this time in four years.

      • Joe Biden is Presidential. I have a great deal of respect for him and Kamala Harris who both came from humble beginnings like the rest of us common folk. He has a grace about the way he speaks and they are already getting more done in the last two weeks than Trump got done in 4 years. I’m so excited about the future, I can’t hardly stand myself. I don’t even want to think about 4 years from now and what might be. Yesterday, Trump said he wanted the names of all the Congressional Republicans who are conceding to Biden. What’s he gonna do? Put them in jail. Proves that he has controlled the entire Senate and Pelosi had good reason for standing up to him. January 20 can’t get here soon enough!

      • I agree with your comments about Joe and Kamala. You never know…perhaps Trump wants to pardon the Congressional Republicans who have conceded as well as his family!! 😄😧😄😊😊😊😄😄. Roll on January 20

  2. Oh so much for which to be thankful, Don! Good health is all we can really have in the end. Congrats on your new grandchild! How wonderful! Stay safe…California is getting hammered by positive covid cases. I know family members in Spokane have also joined the covid club! So many other countries are doing better than the US :/
