Out on the crowded river paths during the coronavirus

Sometimes I simply can't resist walking out on the river paths during the coronavirus, but pretty soon I have to give it up and veer into a neighborhood due to the crowds. I have found the walkers to be getting better and better with social distancing as the death count slowly ratchets up around here, and a few of them have even thanked me for wandering off into the woods or streets to avoid them.

But the joggers and the bicyclists remain hopeless. They will run or bike past you with mere inches to spare if you haven't made a dive for the bushes. I'm pretty sure they all believe they are traveling too fast to share diseases.

And that their sweat is pure.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
