A little bird told me (check the facts)

It's unfair to my cheerful robin painting to tie it to this
message.  It's late at night, and I shouldn't be writing, but
I want to ask you to please get your vaccines, and keep
them up to date.  We got our latest (5th) vaccine today. Also
doctors are asking us to wear N95 masks indoors, as every
kind of respiratory disease is on the rise, and ICUs are
full for children in Ontario, where we live.

A friend told me that COVID is no longer a problem.
But 3 of my friends (a lot in a small circle) have got
the virus in the past month. I haven't seen them, or been
near them, but this virus is still out there, and please
you need to get vaccinated if you aren't.

On the up side. We got our vaccines today, after sitting
locked in traffic downtown last night for two hours, and
missing our appointment. That was frustrating, but we
rebooked and all is well today. Also on the up side, my
hurt arm seems to be infinitely better, so expect art to

Have a loving your life and caring about others day.

So glad you have your next vaccine. I was just told by a nurse that Covid is very high in my area. I am still careful but so many friends aren’t. And then the RSV now also. Stay safe and keep painting❣️❤️❤️❤️
