In comes an email from WordPress: Your site has updated to WordPress 6.1.2!
Ohhh goodie…something else to hassle with.
For more on version 6.1.2, see the About WordPress screen:
WordPress 6.2.1 is also now available. Updating is easy and only takes a few moments:
I can hardly wait…
Welp…in the few minutes that I’ve been sitting here (very few), I don’t see any differences. It all looks the same and works the same.
That doesn’t mean that it won’t change, before we know it, make a great leap forward.
Nice timing, guys! When people are sick as dawgs and can barely think clearly enough to make their way from the bedroom to the bathroom…
Man, covid is grand fun. I haven’t been this sick since I was a very little kid.
As a young child, I was preternaturally susceptible to respiratory infections and to certain meds. If you believe my mother, I spent time in the ICU, and at one point was not expected to live through the night.
This became convenient for me, actually. Come the second grade, when I discovered how deeply I hated school and how VERY much I didn’t want to go there, I learned to take advantage of her fear by claiming to be sick. The “my tummy hurts” maneuver almost invariably got me out of the horrid place. 😀
LOL! This particular ailment, though, is no ruse.
The cough is so violent it tears up your throat as you hack away.
Along about 7 a.m., I dish up a mound of dogfood roll for Ruby, her favorite stuff. Set it down in front of her…and she refuses to eat it!
She’s a corgi, for godsake. Corgis do NOT have picky appetites.
Break open a can of the mushy stuff she likes.
Turns up her nose at that, too.
Oh GOD! Can dogs get the dread disease?????
- The virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from people to animals during close contact.
- The risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is low.
- Pets can get serious illness from infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, but this is extremely rare.
At the rate I’ve been going lately, “extremely rare” is another way of saying “commonplace.” She sleeps on the bed with me, so “close contact” I guess is included in that.
Ohhh gawd! Now I’ll have to get on the phone to the vet the instant the clock hits 9 a.m. And make a 30-minute drive to his office when I feel like a limp rag. And of course he won’t let me in the building, since I’m shedding viruses like sawdust.
…hmmmm… She’s in the kitchen now…think she’s eating, but am not barging in there to disturb her. But…this reluctance to eat is NOT normal.
In other precincts…
Wanna live in Phoenix? Here’s a garden spot for you.
It’s at least 50 or 60 years old. Bordered by two of the noisiest streets in the city. Devoid of landscaping. All spiffed up on the inside, in the latest shades of prison-gray paint. A hot plate for a stove.
They want half a million bucks for it!
For the luvva gawd, that is just INSANE. And we’re told real estate prices are coming down!
Nope. Dawg was not eating.
ooohhh gawd…now as soon as the clock hits 9:00, I’ll have to start getting through to the vet.
