A Letter of Thanks
On Sunday, April 19, I stumbled while jogging on Palisades Drive and took a bad fall. To the woman who heard my call for help and called 911—thank you! To the gentleman who came to my aid and had the presence of mind to ask if the problem was mechanical in nature or something else—thank you! To the woman who drove up Palisades Drive to get my wife—thank you! To the gentleman who offered me cold water—thank you! (Did you get your Yeti bottle back?) And to the firefighters from Station 23 who so quickly, ably and professionally took care of me—thank you! Please know much I appreciate your help that day. Your kindnesses and selflessness have come to my thoughts often as I continue to heal. You made a difference in my life. Thank you all. (Oh, you’ll be comforted to know that I’ve since tested negative for COVID.) Be well.
How can the public restrooms at the CVS pharmacy be out of order for weeks? As a public health resource for Palisadians, especially seniors, it is necessary for patients on diuretics to have available bathrooms. What do employees do or where do they wash their hands during the pandemic with everything else closed? With the astronomical prices of drugs, there surely must be money for a plumber or new plumbing system.
Looks like we’re getting our wish of reopening the beach. All I ask is that we, as a community, make good decisions about visiting beaches (and trails!) so that they do not have to be reclosed. It will be nice to have more places to spend time outdoors, especially if orders keep getting extended!
Happy Anniversary to Cinque Terre! Love to support Marlo and Gianba, and the food continues to be delicious.
Super bummed about Fourth of July. I respect the decision to cancel it, but what a reality check for what the rest of 2020 is going to look like. Stay safe.
