Thought from the Bumpy Road

This has absolutely been the craziest two weeks ever! On March 15, I had a doctor’s appointment in Columbus. Finally, I would get to take the boot/cast off my foot and drive Subietwo. Governor DeWine had just canceled school for the next three weeks across the state in hopes of lessening the threat of the COVID-19 virus. Really? That seemed pretty drastic were the thoughts that went swimming through my brain. Before the next week was over restaurants, bars, fitness centers, hairdressers, and other nonessential businesses were closed as well. Guess who needs a haircut? Turns out even though it was a very bold move shutting down key activities as well, the numbers of people sick in Ohio are relatively small when compared to our population of over 11+ million people.
