Hi All! Forgive me for not writing in a while. I assure you all is well, and my family and I are managing well during this pandemic. I pray you are all well too, and please feel free to let us know how you’re doing in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
I’ve been keeping busy by making cloth masks to donate to local charities and hospitals that need it. (also taking orders) I worked at fabric store for 6 years, so I have a lot of fabric that is coming in handy for this undertaking. I have some Star Trek cloth too that I’m sure will bring a few smiles to wearers.
Of course, we don’t know how long this pandemic will last, but we can continue to do our best by maintaining the guidelines to keep us all safe and to keep the virus from expanding, or worse, coming back for a second wave.
It’s astonishingly awful that COVID-19 has now claimed more American lives in three months, (over 60,000) than we lost in the entire Vietnam War. And now that over 30 U.S. states are loosening the restrictions, it is imperative that we stay extra cautious as some of us go out into the world again. Please ask yourself if certain trips are really necessary, and ALWAYS wear a mask when you are in the company of others, for the sake of them and their families as well as yours. This pandemic is far from over, and we all want to come out of it on the other side with our health intact.
I wonder what the Enterprise crew would have done in this situation? I’d like to think that in the Trek universe, plagues and pandemics are a thing of the past, but as long as there is matter, there are viruses. Just something we have to always be prepared for, and take a day at a time.
My wishes for your best health and happiness. Stay safe and busy!
For All you Kirkites or Jimbos out there (or whatever Kirk fans call themselves). Some images of Jim looking charming, adorable, hot, or just mighty dandy. Nice to see a friendly face to release those happy endorphins! 🙂 (Love those olive green eyes!) Bless you Bill! Stay Well Everyone ❤ love Therese
Leonard Nimoy would have been 89 today! I always like to take a moment to remember him on his birthday. He was a wonderful, brilliant man, fine actor, and great friend to many.
I have to admit, that although he is missed, I am a little thankful that he isn’t here to deal with this pandemic. As a man suffering with COPD from years of smoking,(even though he quit), I suspect he could have caught the virus a bit too easily. But he is at peace now, and, we’re so lucky to have had him in our cultural life.
I also wish a Happy 2nd Anniversary to Adam and Terry (Farrell) Nimoy, who couldn’t have picked a better date of remembrance for their happiness. I wish them love, peace, and safety now and always. ❤ ❤
And now, a Public Service Announcement from trekkerscrapook.com
My Dear Friends and Fellow Trek Fans, We are going through a bizarre, somewhat surreal time in our world right now. I know you are all aware of the Corona Virus which causes COVID-19. There is no doubt that is very scary, and we are all stressed from worrying and preparing for it.
Although we cannot predict how long this will last or if we ourselves will be infected, I hope and pray that all reading this are taking precautions to prevent the spread of this malady, and that our families and friends will stay healthy and well.
We wonder how to keep ourselves occupied without our regular daytime activities, yet this pandemic also offers us a rare chance at simpler lives; taking time to enjoy our families at home, catching up on books and home chores and projects. In this creative spirit, I patched together the collage below, advising us on Corona Virus, as presented by some old pals 😉 You may share this but please be sure to credit me 🙂 Enjoy.
Today is the first day of Spring, and we will be reborn, it will just be a bit later. Kirk and Company would take this head on, as we can. Stay happy, stay strong, be logical. The Human Spirit is our strength. God Bless you all, and LLAP!
1920 was certainly a lucky year for Star Trek Fans — Both DeForest Kelley and James Doohan were born in the same year, and only about two and a half months apart! Today I honor the memory of our beloved “Scotty”, James Doohan, who would have been 100 this year. (b.March 3rd 1920) Jimmy, you’re always in our hearts and a happy memory of our youth.
I was honored to meet Jimmy in 1976 at the Star Trek Bi-Centennial 10 Convention in New York City. My Mom has asked me to ask Jimmy to sing Roamin’ in the Gloaming, and to our delight he sang a line or two. ❤ What a wonderful, loving, generous, sweet man. He was a true treasure to Hollywood and to his loving fans; always grateful for what Star Trek brought him. And as Nimoy acknowledged that he was somewhat Spock, Jimmy was definitely Scotty.
And never forget that Scotty may have been a bit of a miracle worker for the Enterprise, but James Doohan was a real-life hero as one of the first platoons to charge Normandy on D-Day; helping to save our real world for democracy. He later helped prevent a young woman from preventing suicide, and was truly touched when 8 years later, she told him she became an engineer! Remembering Jimmy today, and thinking of his family, especially his wonderful son Chris, who beautifully filled his father’s shoes as Scotty in the fan series Star Trek Continues. Bless you Jimmy, always in our hearts!
