9. 6 here too. Inside, but guests are required to isolate for 10 days prior or get a test and then
isolate for the remaining time before Thanksgiving.

And I'm STILL nervous!!!

I am hosting and have a beloved 88 year old aunt coming. If she ever caught Covid at my home, I would never forgive myself.

Then don’t have her over!!!  How ****ing stupid are these people?!  Either do it and let people know the risks, or DON’T do it!

We’re going to do our normal thing and we all know the risks. I heard on the news last week there is some kind of contagious cold going around. I think we’ll survive.

There is a 99.5% chance I’ll survive the Rona of I get it. I’m willing to take my chances.

after 88 years of living and then being your aunt, she might be hoping to catch it. OTOH, she may just be realistic and prefer to see her family since she nor any of know the number of days she has left.

I have an aunt who turned 103 in April. For now she still lives alone in her own house. She welcomes any and all visitors, whether family or friends. No quarantine or mask silliness.

Our family gathering last weekend was "just" five of us. But then there's Goobernor Noisome:

California Governor Attended Birthday Party In Defiance Of State’s Rules Against Gatherings Involving Multiple Households

If I’m not mistaken, he was exempt from the state rules pursuant to the overarching national rule that liberals are entitled to ignore social distancing guidelines so long as it’s for an Important Cause™. Like holding mass demonstrations against police brutality.

Or smoking weed in a park with strangers to celebrate Trump losing.

To my dying day I’ll believe that a person should conduct themselves responsibly irrespective of what others do. But how mad can one be at Californians who’ll hear this news about Gavin Newsom and think, “F*** it, I’m having a big family Thanksgiving”?

Quote
The dinner the night of Nov. 6 at the famed French Laundry in Yountville in Napa County brought together at least 12 people to celebrate the 50th birthday of Jason Kinney, a longtime friend and political adviser to Newsom who is also a partner at the lobbying firm Axiom Advisors. In addition to the governor, his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, was in attendance.

For those unfamiliar, "French Laundry" is a very high-end restaurant, a bit north of $300 per person for a 9-course meal.

Equally disturbing to me, other than newscum not following the guidelines he expects us to follow is that his political adviser is also a partner in a lobbying firm.  Seems like a conflict of interest and a recipie for political corruption.

Newsom's a hypocrite (Like most Dems are) and the DUmmies are still DUmmies.
I'll be going with my parents up to Indiana, where several branches of my mom's side of the family will have a big Thanksgiving celebration.
I guarantee there will be more than ten people there.
Suck it, DUmmies.

Oh, the HORROR!

"Cats and dogs living together"

Imagine people NOT being afraid of a disease with a non-fatal rate of 99.8% for those under 65!!!   :tongue:

They, the sheeple  vs, We, the people.

Local central Ohio affiliate of ABC/FOX news just had a tsk-tsking report about how all the traveling over Thanksgiving will "lead to the spread of COVID-19," oh my!   

Idiots!  Our RINO Nanny-Stater governor is just as bad, most recently threatening another shut-down and causing some panic buying by the sheeple in the grocery stores again.

When we were at a restaurant on another night I mentioned in passing Goobernor Noisome's recommendation that restaurant diners pull up their masks between every bite. My son expressed doubt that Noisome has actually said that - very reasonably, because it does sound to nutso to be true. Later I found and emailed him a news link (CBS, IIRC) about it; his email response was "wow". I don't know his politics, D vs. R or Trump vs. ______, and don't feel a need to know. I think he's of the A Pox o' Both Your Heads "political party".

I must say, though, that families of DUmmies may be thankful of all the DUmmies who will be Covid-avoiding their family gatherings. Peace and quiet ......

Exactly.   My 60 year old brother in law tested positive for covid on November 6.  As of yesterday he is all but cured without any hospitalization and his only symptoms were slight fatigue.

If the DUmmies want to hide under their beds in their mom's basement,  that's fine with me, but I chose not to live in fear of a virus with a very low fatality rate.

My thoughts exactly.

My 70ish year old Mother caught it and had zero symptoms.  She was more angry that she was in "Covid-19 Jail" (her term) and couldn't play golf Labor Day weekend.

Indeed.
Now they won't have to worry about preparing a special all- vegan meal for the DUmmy at the last minute, worry about their kids being alone in a room with the DUmmy, worry about the DUmmy demanding that the channel be changed from the Macy's Parade to some Rachel Maddow crap (btw, notice that, for all the DUmmies' whining about how addicted the Right supposedly is to Fox News, they themselves openly worship Maddow with ten times more fervency than most Republicans admire any Fox News personality) or Ruth Bader Ginsburg bio special, deal with the DUmmy making a stink over the Christian blessing said over the meal, or of course deal with the DUmmy going into shrieking tantrums about politics and trying to convert everyone at the table.
