Baby boomers figuring out how to cope during these difficult times

Hairdresser-Who Is Cutting Her Own Hair 3173438_1920It’s so upsetting that coronavirus cases are spiking in about 20 states in the USA. I’ve been staying home since early March, and am prepared to stay home more because I’m in the high-risk group.

But many people, including President Trump, aren’t wearing face masks. Trump even organized a huge rally Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma. What is he thinking? Eight of his staff members who worked on the event tested positive for coronavirus. Two of them attended the event. We’ll just have to wait and see how many Trump supporters will get covid-19 and how many will be superspreaders.

I am going to go out this weekend to my nieces memorial service, which is in Bellingham, Washington, a couple of hours from my home. Before I go, I’ll need to cut my hair. I was going to hire an online stylist, but my daughter said since my hairdo is so simple, I might be able to do it myself. I checked out a couple of YouTube videos, so it looks doable. I’ll report later on how it goes.

Meanwhile, baby boomers are writing about the pandemic and other topics:

  • Innovative ways to help others during the pandemic.
  • A theory about the psychology of why some people are still self-isolating and wearing masks while others are ready to jump back into normal life.
  • Why some feel more hope than ever on this Juneteenth.
  • How to shrink your bucket list and instead have the "teacup list," a list where you shrink all expectations.
  • What you should do if someone applies for unemployment benefits in your name.

"We’ll just have to wait and see how many Trump supporters will get covid-19 and how many will be superspreaders." Wondering why you think that information will ever appear in any reliable news source. Attendees would have to agree to be tested, and if they did, test results are usually confidential, aren't they? Someone has to ask where the person tested has been (large gatherings, if the person attended the rally, that the person did, then someone else has to note & collect that data. How likely is that to happen? Be nice if it did, but I suspect it won't, or not before the election, assuming Terrmp doesn't try to cancel it--since he continues to claim there's so much corruption in every state's voting process. Except where GOPers win, of course.
