"We need more white babies."

A customer was at my daughters desk where she has pictures of her kids. The customer, a white woman, complimented how cute my granddaughter is, and then told her we need more white babies in the country.

My daughter looked at her and stated, well you are out of luck here because my baby isn't white.

My granddaughter is part Ojibwe, and Her ancestors have been here longer than any white people.

What kind of hateful horrible nasty person are you to say that about anyone, let alone babies.

I am so tired of some people this year.

Its been a rough week in Wisconsin.

I love this state and I am looking forward to sanity returning.

Got a text with a picture of my 10 year old grandson with a bandaid on his upper arm, a black mask, and a nice big sticker stating he has been vaccinated. His take away will be that he is braver and smarter than Aaron Rodgers. Its a big deal as his house 5 blocks from Lambeau Field.

A few minutes before this my husband sent me a text with a picture of our 17 month old granddaughter who had stopped in to visit grandpa and mom (they work at the same place). She can visit because they are mandated to wear masks at work and have been since delta has blown up. Covid numbers not looking too good up here, or anywhere else in the Midwest right now. I will be so happy when she can be vaccinated.

Tomorrow I have a date to get the booster with my husband. Hope this appointment works, the pharmacy cancelled last week because of lack of staff. We are going on 30 years of marriage and I can't think of anything more romantic than saving ourselves and each other the unnecessary pain and suffering of covid.

So I had a few nice reminders that all is not lost. Reading lots of gloom and doom out there. I am avoiding most news, and being liberal with the ignore and trash thread buttons. It helps.
