The parade coordinator, Janelle Andrews says several steps have been taken to increase security at the parade. They include more police, as well as a new route. We will still be going down Main Street in downtown Waukesha, but we have more of an enclosed perimeter and we're starting and ending the parade procession near the same area, whereas years passed, it was more of a one way parade route. Andrew says the new route will make it easier for police to keep the parade secure. She hopes the added security will ease the concerns of many people following what happened last year. She also says this year's parade proves tradition can overcome tragedy. Jim goodis one O 5 9 WBBL. Illinois has become the most abortion friendly state in the Midwest and the Republican who ran for governor this year says the GOP had better get used to that. While pro life, state senator Darren Bailey says there's nothing he can do to stop abortion and perhaps the state's Republicans should not be of one mind. And when I would sit down and have face to face conversations with people, it went much better than just putting blurbs out there across the airwaves. So Republicans are going to have to get real, they're going to have to mobilize, get energized, they're going to have to get their message out to the public, and we are going to have to bring some sort of unity to the table. Bailey says we've heard the last of neither him nor his movement, but exactly how he'll present it after he's out of office. He's yet to be determined. At the Illinois capitol, Dave Dahl.

The Bernard Lee Poker Show

"So I went there and that's actually where I started playing a ton of poker. I got on party poker and I was playing sit and grows and stuff like that while I studied super dry case law. So I was never into it. But it was the kind of thing where I'm like, okay, I enjoy school. Any subject, I'll be fine. I'll make sure I pass my classes and but still, if that should have been a clue right there when I used to like really enjoy school. And then when I was in law school, I was like, okay. Why did you choose law? Was it just kind of the path that you took her? It's tough. I just wasn't ready for the real world yet. I didn't have a job in mind that I was working toward. It was mostly like it was competitive. I wanted to get a's in college. It didn't matter what I enjoyed psychology, but not really enough to get a master's in it or anything. And I really didn't think. I was when I graduated I was 21. And I just wasn't thinking. I was just like, do I want to go back to the real world and try to get a job or do I want more years of this purgatory where you're just kind of, you know, you're just learning and hanging out with friends and stuff. And it was a snap decision. I was like, clearly, if I get a good enough rate on the good enough score on the LSAT, that's what I'm going to do. So I ended up getting a decent score and I ended up going to a good school, but at Michigan, I linked up with a bunch of friends who'd play every Wednesday and it was just so fulfilling for me. Being around tons of smart people, you don't feel special anymore. I didn't have that thing where I was like, oh, my identity is I get a's and I'm smart. I used to think I was so smart. I got into law school and I'm with these people and I'm like, oh, I have not. I just couldn't, I couldn't autopilot it and get good grades anymore. And some of these people just, they were smart, and they were incredibly hardworking. They were driven. They wanted to be a lawyer. They wanted to have this dream their whole lives. And I didn't. And that you can't, you can't fake that. Those are the people that would live in the library because they really wanted it. So for me, I started running marathons and I started getting to poker because that was what made me feel special. These are interests I have that those people don't. And so I really threw myself into those instead and I was like doing really well in our home game versus people who I consider to be smarter than me. So that was like very fulfilling for me to be like, all right, you guys got the a in that class, but like I'm crushing you up. Right. And so I started going to greektown casino, probably just once a week, I would go with a friend or two, and we'd go and see if we could play versus real players, which has hilarious now because I was like, they're way faker than the poker players that play now. Right, right, right. But yeah, I would win some money and it was just cool. I'm a reporting back home I call my mom and be like, I won $300 this casino playing poker. And she was like, okay, how's school though? And I'm like, exactly. And law class. Yeah, and that's how I felt though. I was like, I was not passionate about law. I was fine. I graduated, got a good job, did a decent job there..

"From what is it still. Is it still a a marriott. The harmony gardens in or whatever that is it's a maybe a courtyard courtyard. Yeah yeah one hundred and sixty six thousand square feet. I mean we've endless stories about greektown. How do you feel about that. As location dug in saying residential is the key residential may be the key I think where it's gonna come down to his. Who are those residents who wanna there. Now i know from you know living in the city as long as i did Greektown was not a place where you would really want to get an apartment. And that's not to say there weren't apartments there is you know as we know there's some properties there some developers we can name or not name. I got to say. I mean catalino says for how many years that you know you can live above a strip club with you know. Great sound from the strip club coming to your apartment. I know some. I know some friends who have lived there who have also lived above. Nikki's there's so there's apartments in greektown there may not be obvious But nobody who's lived. There has ever told me they liked living there partly because of the noise the transient nature of all the different people who are ingred town on any given night and i'm going to raise my hand here as a veteran young guy and say the greektown wasn't always all parking lots and parties like it used to actually be like a greek neighborhood with you know kind of i want to say it's transitional but housing immigrants and all of that kind of stuff and to me. The biggest problem with greektown is it. It's missing so many teeth. There's so many parking lots to loiter in. I don't like surface parking lots right in the middle of things anyway. Longtime listeners will know that. I feel like greektown. Should be like a cohesive area and block and have more structures things like that but greektown. It needs something. Is this et. I hate to use this word because but experiment and it'll be an interesting experiment to see because if anybody if anybody is built for this type of living it's young college just post college young professionals who don't mind the noise who actually like going out to the bars and restaurants in greektown who have that type of lifestyle. That's okay with that. I was there before i probably had in two thousand five i would have lived in greektown. Sounds fun at that age So i think that will. We'll find out here this. This will be quite an experiment to see. Because i do think greektown has all the amenities that you might look for in a neighborhood. Just not as obvious as some other places. Yeah you know. I will say this arm background. I kinda got the idea. They're going to be one hundred. Sixty five units about one hundred and fifty them are going to be apartments. But they're going to be twelve four sale condos and i get the sense those condos are going to be a very penny like i think. They're aiming for seven figures. I don't know if they'll get that. I'll just say that. I don't think you can get seven figures in that area. You're just not this. Isn't it's no. That's not brush park It's not cork town. It's not central business district So i i would not think that they can get that high of a price from but we'll see. I feel like this next. One caught a caught me by surprise as a transit watcher. But i'm kind of excited to see it. I would like to see more of it. There is a transit lane dedicated transit lane going into woodward kind of the area near district detroit. The stadiums across i seventy five. They're it..

So good to hear your voice. John and I got to tell you, I got to really appreciate you having my back and all these times because I've known of this feud that's been going on for years. I mean, people walk up to me that do you know that Drew hates you? That's so not true. I'm here to have your back. Dennis. I want to bridge this gap and I wanted Well, first of all, Can I ask you how Winston's doing your puppy? You know what Winston is looking at me right now, Winston, For those who don't know my 12 week old Bernie Doodle, and I don't know what happened to him last week, but either he got into some poisonous mushrooms or something in the back yard, But I mean, we brought him to the vet and they told us he wasn't going to make it through the night. I mean, it was 105 fever and brought him over to Blue Pearl, one of the local one of the local animal hospitals and he was in the hospital for two days. And now he's perfect. You're sitting here looking at me barking and And chewing on everything. He's not supposed to be. Like every other 12 week old puppy is so thanks for asking. He's doing great. Good. Clearly a big fan John Dennis Phillips joins us right now. He is the ABC action News chief meteorologist. I will say, Dennis, it is much better to speak with you in times of peaceful weather, because right now we very easily could be talking about Fred or Grace, or any number of these storms that seemed to be intent on hitting the Northeast right now, and that kind of crazy. It is crazy. I man you were talking about Paul Paul's in New England guy, and you know any time there's a chance that there's a storm up in the Northeast Tickets really fired up about it. And Andre is going to be up near Boston by Sunday night into Monday, so By the way, John. I hear you're going to Michigan tomorrow. Yes, Yes. I'm headed up to, uh, to the mid and tomorrow my homeland is a matter of fact. I lived in Detroit Fraser. Mount Clemens and my sister went to Grand Valley. So I know the area. Well, Oh, wow. Yeah. I grew up in Lapeer, Michigan, and tomorrow night we'll be staying right downtown. We're staying at the Greektown casino. Awesome. Enjoy. Drew. I'm sorry we were interrupted. Yeah. Listen, you guys just run away with the dang show, Dennis. I don't care. Hey, let me ask you is Dennis because I know you're playing in Todd's Fantasy Football League and I'm a I'm a fantasy football guy, too. But I'm about to cross the streams with Todd because while I support his golf events, and I consider him a friend I've never played in one of his fantasy football leagues before. Is he a fair yet rigid Commissioner. He's old school. He's very much old school like in in our league the last the last year, no tight ends. So I mean all standard scoring. No PPR, really old school guy. His draft is still done in person, where he still writes the stuff up on a chalkboard. As opposed to everything online, So it's kind of fun unlike you. I mean, I'm big into fantasy football, and you know, you're kind of used to the online stuff. Now it's just easier is more convenient. It goes faster, but no, he gets everybody together. And it's a good time. Now you and the one that I'm in I hope so because I'd really love to to attend the draft with you and get to know you in person. Would be awesome. I think I think it's coming up on Sunday before the season starts, like September 5th or whatever date that is so Yeah, I hope you are, too. It's it's really a great time and they're into it. I mean, it's mostly bragging rights. You know it is. There's no entry fee on that stuff. So it's just pretty much being able to trash talk, which is the best part about it. So last year, I made it in the finals. I lost previous year I made in the semis I lost, so I'm kind of hoping I can redeem myself this year. Let me ask you this Dennis Phillips from ABC Action News deal. I'm weird. Fantasy football been playing for, like 20 years. If I if I get burned by a guy, I'll never pick him again like last year. It's not Dak Prescott s fault. But I took Todd's advice. The Dallas Cowboys apologised that he is And I had picked Ezekiel Elliott and then Dak was available, so I decided to go double Dallas and then, of course, that gets hurt torpedoes. My team's chances at getting in the money. Once a guy burns me much like sick wanded last year, I'll never touch that guy again. And I know that's the wrong move to make. Do you do anything silly like that? Absolutely do the same thing. I will never draft O. B. J again. And I kind of feel the same way about about shape line on the Penn State grad and take one is my guy. I literally wanted to name Winston Barkley and I was mixed by my family. But but I've drafted take on the last two years and as great as he is, and a strong powerful of a player is he's he gets hurt, So I mean, maybe the value this year as it I agree with you, it, Zeke. I think it's going to have a monster here, and I'm not a geek san. I'm not Ohio State got at all. So any anything associated with it? I'm not. I'm not real pleased with And but yet, I think, And I think, Dak although there's that shoulder thing going on with Jack right now, so I don't know. I don't trust it. I don't trust it. I'm glad here. I'm not the only one. You guys think I could come to the draft party. Is this an invite only thing or can I come in? Hang you definitely can't.

We flew out of Sarasota and we had a layover in Charlotte. It was three hours long Hub, which which was okay, I guess we we ate some food and all that Friday we spent in Detroit, which Was amazing. I know. I said you some pictures. I posted some pictures. We stayed down at the Greektown Casino walked around dunk gambling a little bit. I think I think by the end of it was $72 that I went, but it was It was over a period of time. I would throw a few bucks in the in the slot machine. We had one I don't know what you would call it sequence where I thought things were going really good. Where was probably $50 in this buffalo. I felt drawn to this buffalo, uh, slot machine that kept this very entertained for hours on end where it was like. Oh, you're winning. Get the bonus games. Those bonus games will get you. I don't think I'm I don't think I'm betting enough, though. Is that what it is? That gonna go, Max bet? Yeah, See, I'll put in 50 and then bet The minimum bet every time. No. But once the numbers start going up or flashing, and the noises start happening, Yeah, I'm completely sucked in some Max. Bet you gotta go, Max bet, Uh, Friday night. We, uh we were we were so four was when it started. We were up very late into the wee hours in Detroit. Uh, at the casino and things like that, and Saturday was, you know the big day went back to my hometown got out there earlier. Your house? Yeah. Did you? Did you see that? How weird. Is that? So cool? Yeah. So we got out there kind of early and we drove by my where my grandpa was buried at the cemetery and Did that drove by the old house, and then you know, segued into the evening Where LaPierre days and an uncle cracker. They think that might have been the biggest LaPierre days. Crowd of all time, like I know that it's hard to imagine that a heavy hitter like Uncle Cracker to bring the bring the fans like that. But there was I've never seen anything like it. Haven't gone there my whole life. Uh, it was It was absolutely insane. The amount of people that were down there the crowd shot that you took. It did look like there were a hell of a lot of people. Yeah, it was crazy. You know, Cracker. He's Yeah. It's It's sentimental, You know, it's it's more about What used to be. That is now but he came out and he played some of the hits and we sang along and had a good time And it was great to, uh it was great to be back in my hometown. I feel Like It's nice to, you know, tap into that, too. That youthful feeling, Uh, every time I go back there, it's as weird as it as it is The one thing that's bizarre, though. Yeah. So Michigan legalized recreational weed. Okay, So my little small town that barely had anything in it has about 15 dispensaries. Now in each one is stand alone. Disney World Just like nothing you've ever seen all these old buildings that used to be pizza places and the Sears and the parties. You know, the corner store. They're all dispensaries now. Oh, man. Yeah, it is, Uh, it's something it's something to be holding his business booming where they all like busy or is it over saturation? It seems like it. It seems like they're holding up in the it might. You know, the town where I used to live. Seems like it's kind of coming back. So it was good to, uh I don't know. I don't know the long term benefits or downside of having that, but you know many weed stores in your town, but It's bizarre to to go back there and see it. See it like that. So you sent me a picture? Uh, where you said this place right? Here is a lump your days legend and there are some sausages and what is what is that? So this mostly this guy does Northern Michigan festivals and fairs and things like that, But it's by you, Billy is the name of it, and it's this Cajun. Cajun man, literally beard down to his chest, Huge white beard and he slays that he serves up the sampler platters that are steak and sausage and chicken. He's got homemade hot sauce right there, Uh, slathers cheese all over it. So that's uh yeah, that is, uh, that's that was a real treat. Pre cracker, You know, you gotta build a base. Yeah, Yeah. Yeah. You gotta give yourself a little Yeah. Um, something happened that I've been waiting to tell. You know, it's funny, and it would have lost in translation, uh, trying to convey it to you via text. So, uh, Saturday night We saw Mike. She chickens out. We had to convince her to come out. She came out. We drank in the galley forever and then we staggered over to copper Shaker.

"You doing. Fire was on speakerphone. So on the highway on my motorcycle. And i had two guys doing wheelies and put on the middle. I was in the middle and Like holding onto two different cars doing wheelies jordan. Where was this. It was on thirty five and toledo okay. Because that's interesting that you say that. I was in waterford the other day off of highland road and there was a group of motorcycle. Guys like four guys doing wheelies in front of me in the car. And i'm freaking out that they're on their motorcycles. Doing wheelies. all. I'm thinking the guy's gonna lose balance and fall in front of me. I'm a rollover on. And i'm going. Why are why are these guys not getting busted. I get busted. If i don't stop fast enough at a stop sign. These a holes are driving like crazy. What happened with those guys jordan. So i actually told my dad about it and he goes. Oh yeah. I saw them to he. He pulled a friend about it and apparently the guys are like go to shows like the guys that do the eight days of false hang done show. They never touched the ground. It's we leave all the way everywhere they. You're not supposed to do it on a highway right in front of just average drivers. You're gonna cost her them to freak out. Yeah i'm on a motorcycle and they go on both sides of the me. Care the crap out. I've seen people do like on side streets to like not even on like a highway about my house. I've seen people do it. And i don't understand that either. Like is it practice like. Are you trying to get a motorcycle. Because i'm too worried about the other drivers and all the idiots on the road no matter how safe you are. They're going to be imagine doing this where you don't know who's pulling out of driveways or turning around the corner. I mean i crash. Because it's so bad i i may distracted driver okay. I'm known for that. I don't pay attention. Sometimes the let alone have a guy chained the roof of a car or some idiot. You know doing wheelies on their motorcycle or a fat. Dj skiing on the back of a school of us. I don't wanna say any of that stuff it's bad. Hey thanks buddy. I appreciate jordan. We got a text from somebody said that. They think that they know the guy that was chained to the to the roof of the car. I heard in that report that. I just played from jessica duke nick. My my girlfriend there from channel to. I heard that they cops were looking for him. Yeah she said they weren't though well when free press contacted them they said we had one of our officers saw him but he lost him when he got on the lodge because they can't do a high speed chase but i'm like well. He wasn't that high speed car. The guy strapped on top of the car. But that's what going back to what you said about how. The police don't like these websites like metro detroit news. Instagram accounts and facebook accounts. That report all this stuff because then it starts to make them look bad because people wonder why is all this going on and cops aren't doing anything in the cops are so under staffed in some neighborhoods. There is no police presence at all. I mean this week's metro times really details. How they have to spend so much time. Saturday nights in greek town to keep the the craziness from getting out of control at night in greektown that all the neighborhoods are suffering. Because people know the cops aren't going to be in the outlying neighbor shannon. I've got something for you and the kids to try bridget. Tell shannon what you did.

"Amy, How did how did your staff pick all these great places? You know, we, um we thought about what would be the perfect way to celebrate. You know the summer coming out of the pandemic, And it was really the dishes in Chicago that have endured. We Book. Traditions that were, you know, has been available for at least 10 years. But many of them have been available much much longer. And you know, there's the dishes that we go back for time and time again that have really made a mark on the city's culinary since you've got appetizers, main courses and desserts. Let's go through some of these, starting with the rib eye steak at Jean and George Jetties. Well, you talk about iconic. That place has been around since The forties. So I'm glad you highlighted it because they're still going strong, aren't they? They are, you know, a visit to Jean and George studies. Every moment of that is iconic and you know the rib eye. There is just so delicious that we thought it was. It was really perfect to include in this issue. And you liked or your people there in Chicago, like chicken Vesuvio at the village, and this is one of those places that you hear about it and you think? Wait a minute. There's still there on West Monroe, but they are are thick. They are still there. They're still serving up Italian classics and, you know we wanted to include chicken, the studio. It's very Chicago death, and one of the dining writers said that you know what? This version just nails it. So, um, you know, it really feels like it's a dish that belongs to this issue. I love Chinese food who doesn't and you've got a couple of places on the list that I want to ask you about. First of all, you mentioned the chef's special, dry chili chicken dish at lousy, Sean. And they have multiple locations. So if if a restaurant, uh, had more than one spot you didn't eliminate them, did you? No, we didn't. You know, Some of the restaurants included whether it's lost the Schwann or Portillo Zorlu Malnati is there is so many locations, which I think also, you know, just kind of is a testament to what an important part of the city's financing they are. I would have been, I would have liked to have been on your staff. Given this assignment did did your Did your dining people just eat like crazy for a month? How did that work? We did it. Um, you know, it's running around the city, trying different dishes and, you know, just making sure that things are as delicious as we remembered, and, uh You know, I won one dish I wrote about was the Polish sausage that express grill and, you know, just picking up the sausage and eating it over the car chart was just like a very fun afternoon. I'll bet I like my egg rolls. We've talked about egg rolls a lot on this broadcast, and I thought I knew all the great egg rolls around here. Within about a 50 mile radius of the city. But I must confess, I've never been into this restaurant on Irving Park, the Orange Garden, which and you can tell by the signage. They haven't changed in decades. And you guys pick their egg rolls as as a great Chicago dish, didn't you? We did You know, they have a little bit of peanut butter, which is a very Chicago addition to an egg roll. Orange garden is an icon in itself. You know, if you determined by it looks absolutely unchanged, The neon is still still blazing from the window. Um, and it's it's a very classic old school Chinese restaurant of the Admirals are particularly good. I am going to have to try those because a lot of people around here miss the old Peking House, P nutty girl you're going to. You're going to start a lot of fights with with pizza picks. But the one you guys liked in the far South side. They've been around a long time, and they're great. Vito and Nick's and your staff selected their thin crust sausage pizza. We did You know, Vito and next was such an institution And you know, we felt like they're thin Cross sauces is the way to go there. Um, um, one of our writers who wrote this one up and she grew up very close, uh to the restaurant, and you know, it's such an iconic part of her childhood and I have made the visit down there to have those very pizza and it's really memorable. It is and you know what? During the pandemic. That's the kind of place that you always worried about, hoping they would survive. And thankfully they have, haven't they? Absolutely. Yes. And the second hockey at Greek Islands was your selection for this, Uh, famous dish, And I think I remember something about this actually being invented in Chicago. Is that Is that true? Do you know that? That's true Sagen. AKI, you know he didn't out in Greektown you've seen the flaming to use was invented at the person on restaurant, which is a restaurant that has since closed by the dish has become You know, such an incredible part of, um Greek Greek venues and in Chicago and even beyond, um, and the Greek islands, for sure, you know. Keeps the magic going. Yeah, they're in Lombard now, too. This breaded steak sandwich. That major list of Chicago's iconic EADS. Uh now I've been reading about this place for a long time. Never been there. Uh, tell me about this is it Is it How do you pronounce it? RICO Beans. Rico bat is Rico. Bennis? Yeah, Yeah, This is, um, really hefty sandwich. It's absolutely delicious. It's breaded skirt steak, um, in a a red gravy that you know there's Jordan Gara. So it's spicy. There's mozzarella, so it's really gooey. It is a really delicious sandwich. Rico Bennis and they're in Bridgeport on West 26th Street going to have to try that because people grave about that place and top notch beef burgers, Another place that people swear by these hamburgers. Your staff selected the patty Melt. They like that. How come Um, you know, it was, um All right. The same writer who wrote about Vito and Nick's also grew up eating this Patty melts a top notch and says that, you know the right, um, it's so crispy and buttery that it's the perfect pairing for the the burger with the cheese and grilled onions. And this is top of my list to go try. Yeah, and it's good that you have the Southside locations the Southside places because There's sort of a feeling that all the great spots on the North side but that is not not so cation point top notch over there on West 95th in Beverly. And again, you. You don't discriminate among chains because you like Portillo's chocolate cake, don't you? I do, like Port Hills chocolate cake.

But The teams, you would immediately think of would be the White Sox and the Cardinals because he still has a home in ST Louis and had so much success there, but Where you gonna play him? There's no D H in the National league, And they have Paul Goldschmidt at first base with the Cardinals and with white socks. You've got a brave but first you've got your main Mercedes off to a great start. D h ng.

That's a bar that we would all released. Many of us would hope to reach. And so that I think in and of itself is a is a good thing and hoping for brighter. Future's coming up in 2021 you've got the vaccines have been announced. And I know that the role has been slow as far as getting those into people but at least says that maybe some parts of what it is that we really enjoy about being out in about in and with each other will will be there for This next year, but you had so this is crazy in its I know what's happened. I've heard about it, You know, with different you know people in the news or notoriety where people have or sports right where they have a task to covert test right and it comes back positive. And then they have another one that comes back negative. It happened with Jimmy Johnson is one where it ended his streak here like a 14 years streak of racism and that ended it turned out to be a false positive. So you had sort of a brush with that situation yourself. Yeah, it was a lot of people have asked me. Why did you get tested in the first place? Which is a fair question? Because way had no symptoms. My wife and I have been fairly strictly quarantined. I mean, she's We go to the grocery store? Maybe once every two weeks. I actually ate inside a restaurant three weeks ago it right belly and drink. Well. It was so brave while the plate place just opened. It's called right Deli and drink. It's in Greektown. I like it quite a lot, actually have a new city article coming out about Right, Ellie and drink in the evolution of the Chicago delicatessen. So anyway, we go there and the chef assured me in this actually happened. We would be the only two people in the restaurant except him and his GM Now he had some guys working and back, but basically we're all massed up. They're going out to a table our table in an isolated dining area. I mean, no one was near us. But you never know. Right? And so when I when I deal was with my daughter, Josie and her fiance, Max. Let's spend Thanksgiving together. This was in November. Of course. So two weeks before Thanksgiving, all of us going to taik Quarantine. Ah, week before Thanksgiving. We all get covert tested just to see if somehow we had it. All of us tested negative, Very cool. We're going to do that, or we plan to do the same thing I Christmas, so I took my first covert test. Came back positive. And I found that out on the 19th of December. So that cancels all our Christmas plans. I've got a quarantine for that. You know, they usually say two weeks, but when they I talked to the nurse on the phone, and she said what we're gonna count. We're gonna assume you were infected the day before the test. I mean that, you know, that's pretty liberal. I think the day before the test And then so that means you have to quarantine until, like the 24th or something like that. So I was like Okay, Um, But if it was my wife, Caroline, who have been so I live with way had a quarantine, too. So you know we're wearing could we weren't in bed together? Obviously, we're in masks around the house. Fortunately, we have a couple of floors in our house. We could separate by floors. I use a separate staircase to get down to the TV room so I can watch old movies, but basically, we're You know, living separate lives for a couple of weeks, But then I got another on the 22nd. I got another covert test. Came back negative. And then on the 28th. I got another covert tests came back negative. And I did it twice just to make double. Sure, I figure I'm going with two out of three tiebreakers, right? Yeah, right. I mean, if I figured two negatives in a row Now. So what do you but nonetheless, I had tested positive. And so what do you do when you test positive? Well, you assume that if you're not feeling any symptoms, perhaps you are asymptomatic, and I should know by temperature like three times a day for days on end. Never got over 97. I mean, my my temperature of anything was attending a low. Um, but I went out to, uh, to luminaria with some of our neighbors. They do it every year, they put the luminary out. My next door neighbor is an epidemiologist, and I went out to get our luminary of the little. You know the little candles and paper bags laid up along the street.

I mean, because I was still put even though my quarantine period was over as of the 24th. Still felt he had He still felt this doctor Alvin extorted that. You know, it may be still wasn't safe to be around other people for their sake. And I had to agree with him. You gotta treat if even if you don't feel anything, If you test positive, you've got to assume that you could be transmitting to the disease to others. So strict avoidance of other human beings is a good thing to do. Anyway. It was wild. I got Testing in two places. And this might be something your listeners might want to consider if they feel they may have been exposed or a fae like us just wanted to make sure that they're clean before they get together for a meeting with, you know, our get together with even to other relatives.
