Update on the Eurasian Dove I rescued back in June.

We call him Ragamuffin...RG for short. He's been flying free since early August and he runs with a flock of about 17 or so doves. I never thought he would live a day after I found him on the ground with his dead sibling after a thunderstorm let alone grow to thrive and and be accepted by wild doves.

My favorite thing? RG flies in every evening for happy hour with me. I take a glass of wine out to where I feed the doves and he swoops in to join me for a few precious minutes...sometimes he is there waiting for me if I'm late coming out to the garden.

He will sit in my lap for some neck scritches or on my shoulder just to rest. He will usually hop on my head to preen my hair before flying off for the evening. It moves me to tears that he chooses to do these things...sometimes with his pals looking on from a distance. When they fly in closer, I leave RG to his friends so they can fill up on food and water before dark.

I don't know if RG will migrate out for winter or stay. I guess we'll see. I love this little bird so much.

I know a woman who is not vaccinated against Covid.

Her husband has just been diagnosed with Covid. He's in their home and quite sick as I understand it. He's been staying in the basement while he has been ill. This woman is a technician in respiratory therapy and is apparently at work today per the text that she just sent to a mutual friend. The friend texted me and wondered if this should be reported? The woman in question is leaving her current position at a hospital 45 minutes away for a job here in town. I don't know which facility she's working in at the moment. I didn't think these people could still shock me but I'm pretty upset by this.

My gawd...my vaccinated kiddo woke up with a scratchy throat and I kept him home from school today as a precaution. What the hell is wrong with these people?

ETA: My friend who told me about this woman being at work and being a close contact is going to try to extract where this person is working so we can report it.
