Kay, out in Hawaii, posted today about making more masks. I attempted to leave a reply, realizing too late that I was typing on the wrong post, but I don’t think it will show up anyway because I did it on this, the new Mac, which doesn’t like Blogger and tries its best to keep me from communicating with any such blogger! Susie in Arizona is having trouble communicating with her bank, and I think it’s because her browser is out of date. I had that problem in 2020 when doing our income taxes. I knew then the old Mac was due for the dustbin. It could no longer be updated. It still has its usefulness, though, in that it doesn’t see anything wrong with letting me talk to Blogger blogs!
But, back to the mask conundrum of which Kay wrote. Masks aren’t going away any time soon. Too many people are not going to be vaccinated. We aren’t going to reach herd immunity any time soon. Therefore, the masks will continue to be needed. I have a variety of masks, many made by dear friends and former students. I have masks for certain tasks, like grocery shopping. I have masks that coordinate with certain outfits. Recently I bought two masks made of designer fabric to brighten up the look. I wear a mask once and it goes in the wash. Today there were five masks in the load of laundry I did. I can always use more.
My advice to Kay, keep sewing. Your fabrics and high quality will be appreciated by those to whom you gift your masks. We are probably going to do this long enough that our early masks will wear out and we will need replacements. Just like our computers and their operating systems.
