THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO
I’m sorry to give you hard news. Please, everybody, stay at home. Your job is not to avoid catching COVID. Your job is to assume you’ve got it and are not showing symptoms. Your job is to keep from passing it on. Numbers are increasing rapidly.

CASES SOAR

Whatcom sees 81 COVID-19 cases in two days, as last week’s testing positivity rate tops 4%

ST JOSEPH’S: RECORD COVID PATIENTS

St. Joseph hospital reports it is treating a record 18 COVID-positive patients on Monday, a nearly a four-fold increase from last week.

OK. EVERYTHING ELSE IS GOOD NEWS

THE LITTLE MIGHTY STORY BOX

Hi Neighbors and Friends –

Under the magnitude of our current situation, like you, I am in pretty minute celebratory moods these days. Yet, I can’t let tales of a certain subdued scale escape without “puppetelling”… So, will a few small Fables of Greater Truth do the trick as morsels of soul food at our sequestered tables?

The Little Mighty Story Box in the Columbia Neighborhood at the corner of Victor & W.Connecticut will dish up 4 dioramas, from 11 AM till dark, one for each day between Thanksgiving Thursday to Sunday. It’s all in weatherproof condition so stop by rain or shine.

Wishing you happy, safe and sane days ahead as these stories come and go and maybe provide one more reason to walk off some of this year’s (social isolation) blues and fat, (if any). Peace, ~ ”Max” Eberhard Eichner, Victor & W Connecticut

FREE COMPOST BIN

I am switching to an open compost bit this year and looking to re-home my FreeGarden 82 Gallon Compost bin. It has has all the parts (lid, door) and no functioning issues. If no one is interested, then I will take over to Re-Store later this week. It is in the alley behind Victor about half way between W. Connecticut and W. North (fence has evergreen covering iris along length).  http://enviroworld.ca/environmental-products/freegarden-earth ~ Carolyn Gray 562.216.3206 cell, cxgray@me.com
