Personnel - Human Resources - Crew Status

For SpaceNut .... searches for all the key words for this new topic turned up empty.

This new topic is available for everyone to report situations you would like to share.

It is also available for messages that might seem appropriate depending upon the circumstances.

I'll lead off with a report from Oldfart1939, and with another from GW Johnson.

Unfortunately I'm not well at the moment; recovering from a bout with Covid-19. Just released from the hospital last night.

Best wishes for a complete recovery!

This message from RobertDyck arrived in his Large Ship topic ...

I got a temporary job collecting the census. Working hours as a computer technician has greatly decreased due to pandemic. I do have an assignment for Friday August 6. Census collection was supposed to end July 31. Because the area where I live was doing so well, I was reassigned to the area across the river. That area is particularly poor, a lot of people haven't completed their census. They found I'm particularly good at this, and a number of households are outstanding, so collection for this area has been extended a week. I should get out knocking on doors again. We're getting down to the particularly stubborn individuals. I got my house roof patched, so it won't rain indoors any more. The roofer said he'll come back to re-shingle my roof. Not so urgent now that it's patched. And my yard needs attention. You don't want to know what my back yard looks like.

My mother died in March. Her funeral was out of town. Years ago she said she wanted to be buried in the family cemetery in the small town where she grew up. I'm the one who pointed that out, my brother was executor. They had a plot for our grandparents (my mother's parents) but they moved to Calgary for their senior years, were buried there. So Aunt Barbie agreed to use that plot in the family cemetery for Mom. Barbra is the only surviving sibling of my mother.

Best wishes for continued success with the census!

It sure seems (to me for sure) to be a great way to meet the neighbors.

Glad to hear the roof is patched. 

Best wishes for the strength to continue on following the loss of your Mom! Glad to hear of family support.

This update is from the "Driverless Solution" topic ...

As an afterthought:  my wife just got the news from her oncologist.  They got it all.  She's clean,  no signs of spread.  No need for further treatment other than a CAT scan every few years to monitor. 

She is not on pain meds from the surgery.  It will take time to recover her stamina.  But she's doing fine.

Best wishes for smooth recovery for Mrs. Johnson! Thanks for the update!
