"Times Square Covid Ball Drop" - Postcard

I created this using GIMP 2.10.28.

-----

Despite New York City having daily record breaking numbers of covid-19 cases, higher than they've ever seen before, even at the previous "height of the pandemic", their Dec 31, 2021 New Year's Eve Celebration / Times Square Ball Drop will happen, just like it did in 2020. I knew they wouldn't cancel it this year.

This year's "scaled back" New York City New Year's Eve extravaganza will be fifteen thousand (15,000) double vaxxed / triple vaxxed people converging in Times Square, wearing masks. Last year, despite covid-19 cases in New York City being significantly higher at the end of December 2020, compared to September 2020, the Ball Drop occurred, but the "Never Forget 9/11/2001" memorial service (in September 2020) was cancelled.

I know who you are
I know where you're coming from

Call Me - Blondie (from The Conjuring)


Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with 'em too before the night is over
So go downtown

Downtown - Petula Clark


In a New York minute
Everything can change

(In a) New York Minute (Everything can change) - Don Henley


I Will Survive Covid-19 (dancing to a bossa nova in Times Square) - my variation on the Gloria Gaynor lyrics

(sung to the tune of I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor)

At first, I was afraid, I was petrified.
Kept thinking you might kill my loved ones, or maybe me.
But then I found out how Boris Johnson ignored the Rules.
And I grew strong, and I learned how to ignore you.

And now you're back... as Omicron.
I just walked in to see the news and their latest hysteria.
I should have bought that Pfizer stock.
I should have bought Moderna too.
If I'd have known for just one second you'd be back to bother me.

Go on now, go. Go see Fauci.
Just turn around now, and go see Daszak and Bill Gates.
Weren't they the ones who helped censor lab leak stories?
Did they think they'd fool me?
Did they think I'd believe their lies?

Oh, no, not I.
I will survive.
Unless their Big Pharma profit making clot shot kills me first.

"Lord Fauci - Patron Saint of Wuhan" / "Lord Fauci - Wizard Of Wuhan" is singing a tune in Times Square, New York City, New York, United States:

It's all about the Science - my variation on the Thomas Dolby lyrics

It's all about the Science.
It's not about "Control the plebs".

It's all about the Science!
It's not to make Big Pharma rich.

I don't believe it!
Cases went up again!
But the Times Square ball drop will go on as planned!

Possible Piebald / Three Legged Deer / No Right Back Leg / White Nose / Possible Malformed Right Back Leg With Hoof (1 of 2) - Photograph

(Click on image to enlarge)

This is 1 of 2 posts of photographs that I took this week.

Dec 31, 2021 update: per a response from https://www.nyantler-outdoors.com, this is not a piebald deer.

I saw this deer in my yard and got my camera when I realized it appeared to have a partially missing back right leg. I assumed it had been hit by a car or attacked by coyotes but survived the injury it had sustained.

However, as I watched the deer walking, it looked like it was attempting to extend its back right leg as if it had a normal length leg there. But the leg, which only extended a few inches past the elbow joint, was too short to touch the ground. Another feature of the deer seemed unusual: it had what looked like a white ring of fur around the base of its nose.

Upon closer examination of my photographs, it almost looks like the deer actually has an ankle and hoof on the back right leg when it is walking (i.e. extending the legs in motion), but that hoof is retracted inward when the deer is standing eating. So it seems like this could be a malformed right back leg, not an injury as I initially thought.

I did some Internet searching, and it is possible this is a piebald deer.

Any comments assisting in identification of what might be going on with this deer are appreciated. I don’t know when I will see this deer again, because deer typically range over a large territory.

"Grim Reaper Of Winter Death" - Postcard

(Click on image to enlarge)

This week's Three Muses challenge theme was "It's TIME for new beginnings!"

Despite New York City having daily record breaking numbers of covid-19 cases, higher than they've ever seen before, even at the previous "height of the pandemic", their Dec 31, 2021 New Year's Eve Celebration / Times Square Ball Drop will happen, just like it did in 2020. I knew they wouldn't cancel it this year.

The ad revenue money generating show must go on, despite ever more dire news stories about medical facilities facing staffing shortages due to vaccinated staff catching covid-19 and needing to quarantine at home for ten (10) days. Then, on December 23, 2021, the CDC changed their quarantine rules, but only for health workers, saying they only needed to quarantine for five (5) days, but everyone else still has to do it for ten (10) days. I wonder if they'll expand that rule change to cover airline staff next.

December 27, 2021 update: Now the CDC says, "Everyone, regardless of vaccination status" only needs to quarantine for five (5) days. Yeah, that is based on Science, and has nothing to do with all of those US Airline Flight Cancellations Christmas Eve and weekend. Amazingly, the CDC didn't know that Science on December 23 (four days earlier), when they said health workers only needed to quarantine for 5 days, but everyone else still had to quarantine for 10 days.

This year's "scaled back" New York City New Year's Eve extravaganza will be fifteen thousand (15,000) double vaxxed / triple vaxxed people converging in Times Square, wearing masks. Last year, despite covid-19 cases in New York City being significantly higher at the end of December 2020, compared to September 2020, the Ball Drop occurred, but the "Never Forget 9/11/2001" memorial service (in September 2020) was cancelled.

The vaxxed revelers won't have to worry about Biden's stark warning of a "Winter of Death" because that message only applies to the unvaccinated. Those "rare" "breakthrough" cases, where the triple vaxxed caught covid-19 are rare, and Pfizer said they'll have their Omicron specific vaccine ready by March 2022, so then people can become quadruple vaxxed. But because it will most likely be another two dose shot, spaced about one month apart, probably plus a booster shot three months or less after that, they will become the quintuple or sextuple vaxxed.

December 16, 2021:
United States President Joe Biden: "For unvaccinated: We are looking at a winter of severe illness and death, if you're unvaccinated."

This week's Three Muses challenge theme was "CARDS, Christmas or Playing card." I went with a New Year's Eve theme.

I'll be reading the news, to learn what New York City decides to do about this year's (Dec 31, 2021) New Year's Eve Celebration / Times Square Ball Drop. Last year, despite covid-19 cases in New York City being significantly higher at the end of December 2020, compared to September 2020, the Ball Drop occurred, but the "Never Forget 9/11/2001" memorial service (in September 2020) was cancelled. I wonder what, if any, influence the "Winter of Death" Narrative will have on the Ball Drop.

"Business Meeting" with Secret Santa
Wink! Wink!
18 December 2020
10 Downing Street
London, UK

Police and Press complicit, so...
No Lockdown Rules for us Elites!
It's time to party!

But all of the above is fictional, because Allegra Stratton said it was, four days later.

Allegra Stratton: "This fictional party was a business meeting... [laughs] and it was not socially distanced."

Apparently she's not laughing today [8 December 2021]. But I'm certain her tears today were sincere, and not tears due to the video of her and others in the "mock" press conference being leaked. Although one has to wonder why it took almost a year for the video to be leaked.

But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

You're my angel
Come and save me tonight
You're my angel
Come and make it all right
I'm alone
Yeah, I don't know if I can face the night
Don't know what I'm gonna do
About this feeling inside
