These Are Strange Times We Live In, But There Is Some Brightness Out There

Did you see this?
I was so uplifted and sang along! Did you?



I'm looking for the brightness in this strange time we live in now-a-days

Isn't this a fun idea PF?
So far about 20 homes in our Community have put
stuffed Bears in their front windows.
I have a coupla of `em, so I think I'll change them up,
put clothes or hats, balloons, ya change it up as
long as the kids or outta school.
Our County has not mandated that we stay indoors,
so there's loads of folks out and walking, biking, hiking,
fishing, etc. just advised to be respectful of other's
6 foot limit when in public parks and so on.

It has gone all over.. I keep up with our home town of Pacific Grove, CA through FB and its big there too..

Our apartment is situated so that we don't have windows which people walk or drive past.. First time I've looked at that as a minus..

Our parent company has two facilities, both here in Torrington. Small company. Our facility needs to have a couple of negative pressure rooms in case there is a Covid-19 outbreak among our residents. We decided we would makeover 4 rooms for a total of 7 beds under negative pressure and another 4 rooms (7 beds) as step-down beds. We took bids from several construction companies. The winning bid started work today. We were told by the owner that they want to provide the labor for nothing, so the job will only be the cost of the materials. We are overjoyed and there are still good people in the world not out for the money, they want to help.

Our response...we will feed them their meals, pay their hotel bill and those of us who bake are bringing in goodies for them everyday.

Wunnerful, wunnerful, PF. It's not a bad thing to be paid off in food.

in their neighbors yards to brighten their days.

I found these solar garden stakes at the Dollar Tree
and just couldn't resist
Let's see how long it takes them to notice...

I already have pink flamingos...will have to think of something else. Being a rural area, we have to be careful of dogs that would like you for lunch.
