    Believe me, I've been worried but think that if this were inimical to traditional house pets in general there's be zillions of dead dogs and cats. I've only heard of a very few. I just keep my face and slobber away from them as much as possible.

    If they were affected maybe the Animal Planet would have the death counter like CNN used to.

    Yeah there hasn't been many dogs or cats thst got covid, more dogs than cats I believe, at least 4 dogs in the US that I'm aware of and 1 cat, some over in Europe and Korea too...

    Minks have had it worst than our pets, thousands and thousands of minks sick with Covid and being culled here and in Europe...

    I think I am past it. A little pekid around the edges maybe. My wife is a couple of days behind me it seems. She has been fine and tested negative at the same time I tested positive. Now she's starting to get a headache, sore throat. Keeping an eye on her.

    Some people feel better then go down worse for a while, yeah keep a watch on her condition, not trying to be an alarmist but it could take a turn to the worse fast, hopefully not, and the same with you feeling better, could swing the other direction before you know it...

    I've heard through the grapevine that the neighbors down the road from me are all sick with Covid, their kids brought it home from school...The local schools are open two days a week for the kids to physically be present and the rest of the week they have remote classes at home...I'll call up the neighbors later today and inquire, haven't talked to them since before Xmas anyway, we usually talk for a few minutes in passing during warmer weather when I'm outside more, but it being winter and cold I haven't seen them much at all...I have no idea how serious or mild their infection is, but I heard the entire family is sick...

    Call off the dogs !

    He's back up and is ready for some ball.

    I don't know how I feel to be honest as i'm unfamiliar with this sort of thing but I do know the fairways will be wider and the holes will become buckets when against him. Man out of nowhere.

    Have no idea what has gone on yet and to be honest just knowing we will be sharing our games again is more than good enough for me.

    Well, I had been up a few pounds around the holidays. I may have to go find a roll of duct tape to hold my pants up now. Between this and no gym for a year I feel like a bucket of noodles

    I've never been to a gym as I do it from home. Everyday for eleven years, give or take the odd day as I used to double up on one day and pop a coin into a purse as a banker. When I scrapped that idea I had twenty odd coins in there and haven't missed more than a week in total since.

    Its tough to keep the diet for me, the exercise I do because it makes me feel good but the more I do the more I want some things flesh for lunch.

    Weather permitting I walk 5-8 miles a day. Max was 12 one day. I can bang out as many pushups -real ones - as you like that only seem to give me a stretch. Got rid of all my weight equipment years ago - now it's triple the price and I have no room for it. Hoping to get to a low end $10/month Planet Fitness in the spring - I have to do something.

    I only do about three miles a day but in all weathers and one hour of reps and weights. It would not be so easy if I had a wife and kids and to be honest I dread to think what shape I would be in. It's now at the point where I if I don't do them I feel wrong in some way. Push ups I find hard which is odd when all is considered. I have a routine and it's all done to musical beats. It was a member of an old forum who I was going to meet with that spurred me to shape up, she said I was a triangle..lol..Funny girl she was and a triangle i'll take but she also said I had sparrow legs..lol...so that I have addressed. I worked so hard at it I put my back out on our very first meet up. My left leg was out out of action and I was dragging it behind me, ( desperate ) felt like I was doing the classic zombie drag as I approached her. The look on her face was a picture as her jaw dropped and eyes widened I was saying na na na I don't always walk like this.

    I had to try to sleep more this morning, I woke feeling like I've been working hard the past 2 weeks without any rest, much aches and pains through my whole body...My head is pounding and my arms and legs feel like spaghetti, I have no energy...ugh hope its not covid, maybe just a rough night of sleep, my mind was more active dreaming last night than it usually is, if I don't feel better this afternoon I'll get a test done...

    Had a test done and it was negative, the problem turned out to be a blood pressure problem, which has been addressed and I'm feeling much better today...BP was spiking a little high too much lately causing the symptoms and fatigue, according to the doctor and I also came to the same conclusion once I realized that was a problem...

    The corona virus (Covid 19) has affected my life in a lot of small ways and a few big ways. The first 6 weeks of spring last year I got up early (5:30 am) every saturday to go to Home Depot to get supplies I needed for my yard work. I then spent those weekends working on my yards. After that I got tired and took a weekend off. I have a friend whose only activity outside of home and doctors appointments is going to the casino and I used to go with her every wednesday. Needless to say I have saved a lot of money because the casino we frequented has been closed since the first week of march. We did go to another casino twice in the summer that was open for a time. It was closed after August and just re-opened last week. Since there was no meeting friends on weekends I have done a lot of yard work and am preparing to get started on that again (due to snow and freezing weather I haven't done my usual February fertilizing etc).

    The big impact was that I was not able to visit my dad in the nursing home since a year ago. He passed in October and only one person was allowed to be with him. My daughter went and I am glad it was her. So now I have not even visited his grave, though I plan on doing that in 2 weeks on his birthday.

    Over all I have been luckier than most. I have been working remotely at home since 2016 so no transition there like my co-workers who were working out of the office. The company is just now setting up the offices so that people can come back to work in the office if they want. Most don't, we are computer people and working from home is better for most than working in cubicles.

    Some of my relatives have gotten the virus early on (before it was a thing and the state was shut down) and luckily all of them survived with few side effects. A lot of my coworkers who live in Texas have not been so lucky, loosing relatives and worrying about some who have the virus because that's all they can do since they are not allowed to visit.

    I hope a year from the beginning of this pandemic everyone is doing better than last Feb or Mar.

    You should have a home BP tester. They sell a cheap one that clips onto your finger, but I don't know how accurate that is.

    In the “for what it is worth” category, my wife’s friend had her first Covid vaccine shot on Tuesday. All was well until Wednesday morning. She woke up with the chills, fever and she threw up. All was well today, Thursday. Just keep in mind you might get a delayed reaction.

    I just heard from my dad that he got tested positive for the virus. This is a week before he was to be vaccinated. Im stressing now, but he seems to feel ok presently, after having some flu like symptoms for couple of days. Im scared tough, hes part of the risk group. Hopefully he did get the better odds and already had the milder version, but theres no telling what kind of after effects there will be in any case.

    Best of luck to your father.

    Load is key and hopefully being careful as I hope he has been it will be a low load case.

    I'm glad my Dad knows nothing of this virus as it was after his time.

    Many new therapies and options to help now and much greater chances of avoiding the worst case scenario
