    The wife and drove our grandson to Perry, Georgia today to hand him over to his mom for 10 days.

    On the way back we stopped by Summit. I didn't need any parts, but thought I'd pick up a couple T-shirts.

    I pulled around by the front door and they have two signs stating, blah, blah, blah... everyone must wear a mask.

    So I kept right on going, got back on the interstate and headed home.
    :mad:

    I figure sooner or later we won't be able to wipe our asses without one so I ordered a few from Atoms. They'll be here Saturday.

      It’s ok to me. I’m mature enough that if some of the experts say it helps it may help. I needed one to see my yearly s Prostrate Doctor and I needed one for my every six month heart doctor checkup and I needed one at Walmart and Rural King and Tractor Supply and Ace Hardware and our numbers are great in my area.

          I hate the mask crap....but a private business has the right to have you wear a mask...just like no shoes no shirt...no service.

            Even Trump wore one...this week. That said, we've been wearing them in stores here in IL since April. No big deal imo

              I feel this way. We were on lockdown for 2.5-3 months with no racing, no car shows, no sports, no nothing. If wearing a mask to walk into a store makes them happy I’ll throw my Trump mask on and go shopping.

                I'm in california, and you basically can't go anywhere without one. It's been that way for months.
                I heard that salt kills the virus, so I borrowed this sweaty one from my girlfriend. I use the left cup on odd days, the right cup on even.

                  Was on a conference call this morning. Topic was pretty sobering.
                  Suicide rates in the US is nearing record numbers for this point in the year.
                  Veteran suicides are up and expected to rise before the years end.
                  Part of the fallout of this pandemic is higher rates of depression and it's expected to create a mental health care crisis.
                  Some of the other issues disused was the states reporting of COVID cases.
                  Example given was Ohio is reporting 78,742 cases. That is a total number since March 13th. What's not being reported was current active cases, in Ohio's case it was 1047 of those 348 were hospitalizations 62 of those were ICU admissions. There was additional data, but it's not relevant as it was county break downs.
                  In addition the subject of individuals with serious health conditions are not seeking treatment.
                  There has been a spike in heart attacks, strokes all the while cancer treatment is down.
                  In short, people with cancer isn't declining, they just aren't being treated or diagnosed.
                  The butchers bill for this will be high.

                  ive gotten into 2 altercations this week alone, with nazis who think it is their place to enforce this mask rule
                  apart from the fact that it is stupid and a mask does nothing, what would possess someone to give lip to a complete stranger about wearing a mask?
                  they are wearing one, doesnt it work ?

                  its kinda funny, people always wondered how all these germans allowed to let the nazi regime take over and not stand up to it, but now im seeing first hand how people will gladly point out those of us who do not comply and wear the little piece of cloth

                  F1.large.jpg

                  wait, how did we make it to the N&P?

                    Unfortunately I know one. Hard to say for sure if the Covid crisis had anything to do with I'm sure it didn't help.

                    Stay away from the news. Protect yourself how you see fit and keep on living. I'm so sticking busy I don't have much time to think about it.

                    Dang it Rob!!

                    I pointed out the Gray exit to my wife as we drove past and told her that's your exit!!

                    We're headed back down on July 31st. Let me know if you guys are near Macon that day and we can grab lunch. I owe you for all your help on my Magnum swap. Lunch is the least I can do. :)

                      Don't like the surgical masks? Make your own out of fishnet. Someone gonna call you out on it? I see this going to Politics forum soon....seems they all end up there when there are competing views and our President gets mentioned. Hundreds of labs reporting 100% positive results and on follow up testing it was down to 90% false positives. Yes its here, Yes its deadly but get the numbers straight, If your going to use the numbers to shut down the economy, get them right. CA is using case numbers to determine if schools will open to students so it is important to get the most accurate numbers. If kids don't go to school, parents don't get to go to work. That includes Police, Healthcare, and everyone else they deem more important than others....
                      "...Countless labs have reported a 100 percent positivity rate, which means every single person tested was positive,” Fox 35 News reported Tuesday. “Other labs had very high positivity rates.”
                      Orlando Health, for example, reported a 98 percent positivity rate. Lee Memorial Hospital Lab, PanCare of Florida, Inc and Advance Medical of Naples all reported 100 percent positivity rates; no negative results were included.
                      That rate implies every person tested had a positive result.
                      Fox 35 News said it investigated the numbers by contacting every local location listed in the report. Orlando Health confirmed to Fox News that the 98 percent figure is incorrect and the positivity rate is actually 9.4 percent.
                      "

                        We shit, there I go making plans without consulting the Colonel. We're meeting the grandson's mom in Columbus on July 31st since they will be coming back from Panama City. We would be in a Camry anyway, lol. We'll have another meet and greet at Summit in the fall and I'll drive my Barracuda down. You'll have to take it for a spin.

                        Macon is closer to where we are. We're out in southeast Jones County. Man you don't owe me a thing. You did all the work. You took all the advice. Kitty likes the Cracker Barrel (Honky Bucket) that's on the north side of Macon. Maybe we could do that. Just keep me posted. I'll forget. lol

                          Update: Family Dollar/Dollar General are not requiring face masks unless local jurisdiction mandates it. They are encouraging masks but they are not mandatory if allowed. Half my customers today did not wear masks around me in their homes even though they invited me in to do repairs as directed by the CSR on the phone. "Please wear a mask if you are near our employee working inside your home" ...yeah...sure.

                          I have a doctors slip from 1999 when I had my heart attack and lost 1/4 of my heart not to wear a mask. I also have sleep apnea. And I’ll still wear a mask where needed.

                            Are you serious?

                            What proof is there that a mask does nothing?

                              Old Doc Fauci admitted he lied when he first said masks don't work because he was afraid people would purchase in mass and there would not be enough for the healthcare workers. So he lied and chose the winners and losers. Psychological warfare, just wear the masks for a few weeks, months later we cannot go anywhere without them. Everything was shut down, and when they opened them up people felt the masks were not so bad since everything was opened. Broward County Fla just passed an ordinance that guests in ones home must wear a mask. It's a slippery slope people. The virus is real, the over reach is as well. The healthy are being treated as sick patients in this new world, outcasts to not stand near or talk too unless through plexiglass. If you are vulnerable stay home or wear the mask, but for a healthy person to be treated as if they are diseased is utter nonsense and a total control power grab.

                                im still looking for that CDC post, but here is an interesting one from the surgeons general

                                "Seriously people- STOP BUYING MASKS! They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus"


                                in the mean time, the WHO is also on record as stating that healthy people need only wear one when taking care of sick people

                                I get amazed every day, and it's easy to see why we are in so much trouble. Don't wear a mask if your not sick ?? Many people are sick and yet don't have symptoms, and they can still pass it on. What was believed to be true months ago has been found to be incorrect, so put the friggin mask on for God's sake. What is the big deal. I've seen pictures of many of you and the mask may be an improvement to your appearance. :)

                                  If my glasses fog up every time I exhale no matter how tight I get this mask, imagine what else is escaping past the flimsy elastic/paper/cloth seal. And guys with beards...thats just more fiber filter under the mask preventing a seal. They backpedaled on glove use. "Flatten the curve" has turned to "We'll open when there are NO cases reported in 2 week time frame.." that is not flattening, that is eradication that is impossible. Lets test everyone for the flu and flu antibodies and shut the economy down if they detect ANY. That's what it has come to. 80,000 Americans died of common flu and its complications (2017) with 145K to Covid-19 currently. So its almost twice theflu but we do NOTHING PPE wise to prevent catching the common flu and ~45% get a FLU SHOT! imagine what it would be with no flu shot @ 40-60% effectivness. No shutdown for common flu...This is being used for other reasons.
