Some folks are wise and some are otherwise.

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day


After the Prime Minister advising all Canadians to return home, we packed up and made our journey home from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.  The streets in most of the major cities were very quiet.  Restaurants were take out only. And some of the states, like Ohio,  we tried to avoid because there were no Hotels open.  I managed to have food poisoning for a day while we were on the road, so my husband had to drive most of the last day.

It feels so good to be home again in Canada.  With the Coronavirus Pandemic issues we will be in quarantine for 2 weeks, but we are lucky enough to have family that can pick-up our groceries for us.

Take time to deliberate;
but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.
Andrew Jackson (American – President March 15, 1767 – June 8, 1845)


Well, the Coronavirus Pandemic is causing lots of panic everywhere.  Toilet paper and major supplies are flying off the shelves as people try to prepare.  Schools in Ontario are closed until April 5, 2020.  All public events are being cancelled.  People abroad are worried as borders are being closed.  International flights are being cancelled.  There is a shortage of tests in the USA.  Worldwide numbers are increasing.

My home church will be closing the doors for the live service on Sunday and trying Facebook live to deliver the weekly message and updates.

All health insurance from Canada for travelers have a clause that renders the insurance coverage to 0 if there is an epidemic or pandemic.  So my husband and I need to leave Texas this morning and make the trip back to Ontario Canada.  Today I’m borrowing from the past with the Daily Quote, but it seems very appropriate.
