Most impressive, but are his skills up to the task? A challenge has been offered.

Prepare to die!!!!

There can be only one bear with such masterful dexterity and martial arts skill.

We shall soon see who is THE REAL Kung Fu Panda ...


Who the hell does that zoo bear think he is?

We got our first case of coronavirus at the office today. We're not being told the identity of the person - I think because of Hipaa laws. HR is telling us they will contact anyone they think that person was in contact with today. They told us to leave the building now, and our floor will be cleaned thoroughly over the weekend and ready for us to come back to work on Monday. This sucks. I know not everyone's been following the mask requirements - most wear masks but don't cover their noses - some not even their mouths. But they've been good about spacing. I'd really like to know who it is - just for peace of mind. Tomorrow I'm going to my Dad's 89th birthday party - don't want to risk passing that on even knowing we're doing the masks and spacing thing. This sucks - I shouldn't have told my brother about it.

Ruz -- a sad drag! I'm sure it would be a disappointment to miss your Dad's celebration, but... well, I wouldn't presume to advise you (or, really, even know what advice to give).

You'll be on my mind....

Sorry, Ruz. That’s a really unfair situation you’re being forced into by your job/co-workers.

Just shows that if everyone was just doing the bare-freaking-minimum and wearing masks at all times (properly!), so much of this could be avoided.

Happy birthday to your dad, though!

Thanks guys. I ended up going after my microbiologist brother gave me the go-ahead. I just made extra sure that my mask covered my nose at all times other than eating - and kept plenty of distance. It was a great time - even with the heat and mosquitoes.

my somewhat informed advice... stay away from your dad, if you must attend. The better thing to do would be to stay away completely from the party, and attend his 90th.
My grandfathers brother passed away at a nursing home at the ripe age of 101, due to covid19. He lived a good life, so I am not so upset about that. I am upset that he passed away alone and his sons and daughter could not see him...forget about me and other relatives further removed. Well, he did see one son while the son was all decked out in level-3 protection gear, so I'm sure granddaddy had no clue about who was seeing him or what was going on.
This virus is no picnic for the old and fragile. Dont take any chances, if you value their lives.

WallToWall, I appreciate your advice, and man - I'm sorry for your loss.

Raise my cup of water to all of you - hoping all of us reach 101 healthy and happy in our own ways.
