President's Message

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope you all had a great holiday season and are staying safe! It seems that the Covid-19 virus is getting closer and closer to home! Our daughter tested positive this morning. She is a single mom and we help her with Axl all the time. They both came over on New Year’s Eve and spent about an hour with us, then New Year’s morning Jen wasn’t feeling well, fever, etc.

Wendy went to the store and got her some things she needed and brought them to her, she then came home and made homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for Jen and Axl and brought that over to them. Jen wore a mask the entire time Wendy was there but Wendy did not! So that means Wendy has been exposed, which in turn now means that I’ve been exposed again! Neither of us feel any different but we are going to wait a few days and then go get tested at COC to make sure we are negative.

Speaking of Covid, I was supposed to have major back surgery on December 28th, but with the hospitals all but full with Covid patients, the surgery was cancelled and no new date has been determined. The thing that really sucks is that all my out-of-pocket expenses were paid up, now I’ve got start all over again and need to fork out $7,500.00 before my insurance kicks in….what a hell of a system we have here! Needless to say I was a little disappointed, but it’s not just me, I know of a couple other people who were scheduled to have a medical procedure done and they were also cancelled! What ever you do, don’t get sick! There is no room in the hospitals!

One more story! On Christmas Day my Dad (he and my Mom with with my brother in Menifee, Ca), had another stroke. This is 5 in the last year and a half, anyway the first thing the paramedics said when they got there was “We don’t know where we can take him as all the hospitals are full!” Not exactly what you want to hear when your Dad has had a stroke. They were able to take him to the Stroke Center in Marietta, CA. (About 30 minutes away), where he was able to recover and is now home again.

As we start 2021, we are still under the “safer at home” order which means no in person meetings yet. We will continue to use Zoom to have our monthly meetings. I sent out an email around Christmas time with the Zoom link for Tuesday’s meeting (Jan. 12, 2021 at 6:30 pm), if you missed the email, the Zoom like is also here on the website. It is on the members-only page and you must log in, in order to view the link. We will record the meeting once again and I’ll send out the recorded link when I receive it.

I hope to see you all on Tuesday, Jan. 12th. Until then, Keep Shooting!
