DAILY CENSUS OF COVID PATIENTS HOSPITALIZED IN TEXAS AREAS:  SELECT ATTACHMENT

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN SHIELD: Get a clear family size plastic pop bottle. Trim off both ends and then cut the bottle from top to bottom. Tape the sharp edges. Staple on a cut rubber band. Wear with pride. It helps to have a reliable Norwegian helper. I wore my mask for over an hour, and it was more comfortable than a surgical mask. It might fog up a little. You can drink with a straw while using it. If you dip or chew tobacco, you could put a small spit cup in the bottom and let the spittle run out of the corner of your mouth.  If you tend to drool, you should wear an ascot or at least a  bandana. I can’t seem to attach a photo to this email. I’ll try and send a photo out with another email. It looks a lot like a family size pop bottle cut from top to bottom with a verticle cut. 

MANY Michigan State students get COVID at one bar! At least 95 people who visited Harper’s between June 12 and June 20 have now tested positive, according to the Ingham County Health Department — and so have 12 more who did not go themselves but caught the virus from someone who did. All are between the ages of 15 and 28. 

My wife tried to apply at the post office but they wouldn’t letter. They said only mails work here. 

Some aquatic mammals at the zoo escaped. It was otter chaos!
