  1. I’m sure their job is not easy, but would someone please explain to Mr. Spurlock how to properly wear a mask and how to instruct visitors how to properly wear a mask for everyone’s safety. If it doesn’t cover the nose correctly it is as useless as a hind you know what. How they let him wear it wrong in these photos is mind-blowing. I’m at home right now because I thought it was safe again to go out in public without a mask, having had both Covid shots and two boosters. Not so I caught Covid last week and I’m feeling miserable even with the Pfizer’s oral drugs Paxlovid.

  2. These folks really do a great job. People don’t realize they often go above and beyond to help them.
    I’ve seen them get harassed by inconsiderate family members and, all the while, remain polite and professional….not always easy to do.
    If any of you readers find yourselves down there, and the Blue Coats help you, take a second to thank them.
