Agnes, thanks buddy .....
But you know me by now. I cant just let it stop at that. But you brought up a point, sort of indirectly. As you know, I have pushed the limits of my personal safety a bit. My having done as well as I have is as antidotal as the person on the other thread who pointed out a relative who contracted COVID after having received the first dose of the vaccine. Neither are more than a blip on the chart. My 92 year old ex-mother-in-law, G-d love her, spent three days in the hospital with COVID, then went home. And that was in Central America. Again, a blip; a happy blip, but still just a blip.
No one should take my actions as an example of reasonable thinking (go ahead folks, pile on. I wrote that for you) ................ but mainly because they don't know all the factors that shaped my thinking and my behavior ... the primary driving force in my life being somewhat profound and self fulfilling.
What is right for me, probably will not be right for others and I don't encourage my lifestyle of anyone. Sometimes, most times, I haven't made that clear. So now I have.
While I am at it. Before I got vaccinated I wore the mask out of fear; the fear of infecting someone else. Now that I am vaccinated, I wear the mask (inside) out of consideration of those that will be uncomfortable if I do not. Small thing to do for ones fellow man.
I try and avoid the numbers these days. I did make the mistake of posting two websites that discus the odds of the numbers ....... but without my commentary, and it still blew up in my face. But its hard to keep totally out of blips being depicted as cause for action. Good or Bad.
G-d Bless you Agnes and keep you safe.
