We're having some anxious discussions regarding Christmas. I really want to visit my 80-something parents. But, they aren't very good about Covid-prevention. They regularly go to restaurants. And, my dumb brother and his wife who also aren't very good about Covid-prevention will also be around, possibly with some of her family. So, now my wife is getting panicky about going out there during the holidays, which I understand. So, I am stuck in the middle, as usual.

I'm going to phone my mother and propose we visit after the holidays, when airports will be less busy (and my brother and his will not be around.) I don't expect that conversation to go well. Shit.

New Mexico is shutting stuff down for 2 weeks.

I guess I got out at the right time.
At least my New Mexico parents are seeing the light and taking things more seriously, now. Following up on the above, I spoke to my Mum yesterday and she was completely supportive of my thought that we shouldn't come out to their place for Christmas this year - to defer it to a quieter time next year. (And, we didn't even know that NM was shutting down). I was shocked to hear her say it, and she was pretty emphatic.

That's great. Curious if they still support Trump and if they think he has done a good job with the virus.

My father gave up on Trump months ago. I don't thing he voted for Biden, though. My mother acknowledges the facts about what a horrible person Trump is, but still voted for him, because she is a Republican. But, they both criticize his handling of the virus. As background, they have both been rabid Republicans ever since they became naturalized Americans in the 1960s. My father was a state committee-man and my mother got involved in some statewide campaigns. They revere Ronald Reagan. So, they are too wedded to their self-image of being Republicans to expect them to change, now. So, it was a big deal for me to hear my father say he wasn't going to vote for "that asshole Donald Trump".

Nice to hear that at least one person put aside party loyalty to realize Trump is a POS and doesn't deserve a vote.

She doesn't seem tall at all on Instagram. Like 5'3" at best.

Was totally turned on by the lady at the front desk. Actually everyone in the place was female and attractive in a mature and educated kind of way. 100%
