Sadly, the attendees at the Trump rally today in Oklahoma will not be forced to wear masks. There was a doctor on TV last night explaining how much the pandemic could spread at the rally. I don't think Trump realizes he may be "thinning his own herd," as they are all his supporters. Great limerick! Hugs, Carolyn

My thoughts exactly! The more who get the virus, the less support he will have at the polls! The whole world sees the results of such poor leadership! Let us hope Arizona quarantines the whole lot! Aloha! Rico

This is going into to my Faves Rico! It is little to ask when workers must keep their masks on all day long. We have such few cases here in Hawaii because most are diligent about wearing their masks. Bravo! Blessings xxoo

Let us hope California making masks mandatory will result in statistics even Trump can understand! Aloha! Rico

Hello Rico … wearing a mask has a different value to wearing one in the Wild West. A fine limerick indeed Rico - Lindsay

The good side is young women are now giving me the eye since they can only see my eyes! Hope that works for you, too! Aloha! Rico

California has now made masks mandatory; it remains to be seen how they will enforce it! Stay safe! Aloha! Rico
