We are soft touches when it comes to living things – Spot is hanging in there and Sharky continues to give Spot some encouragement. I joined a Facebook Goldfish community. I was told it couldn\’t hurt to treat them both to a fish-antibiotic. Who would have known? It could be parasites. So I went down to the pet store and thankfully they were open. I bought what we needed, and we placed 10 drops into the tank. The treatment is every other day for 3 days. Squeezing the cooked pea shells off and then 2 peas each. Other than that, we wait. I have had to stop sitting there, watching him. I start to cry. I even had a tummy ache last evening. Sympathy pains?
Meanwhile, we\’re trying to keep our mind off him while he recovers. The husband has torn down a portion of the back fence to replace – and the landscapers have come to do our front yard in river rocks. A lot is going on.
Each day the weather gets warmer. Supposed to hit the 100\’s in a couple of days. I don\’t see many people will still comply with the wearing of a mask. I sure hope the heat kills it, but I don\’t believe they have proved that yet. I get hot while wearing them in stores and my glasses fog up.
Tehama county next to us might be opening up barbers and hair salons. I can wait a couple more weeks, but I\’m sure many will go down there. At least it goes toward small businesses. I haven\’t been following the latest statistics – it was giving me a stomach ache so I decided to \”social distance\” from the news. I am much more productive and happier. I mean, I know what is going on. I don\’t need to follow it minute by minute, hour by hours like in those early days. I get all I need to know in with the evening local news.
