When Jerry arrives home, the kitchen light is on inside the home. He gets out of his pick-up truck, with beer in hand, he runs in through the front door with joy and shouts, "Hey baby, I'm home! Let's start celebrating tonight! Yeah!"
There is no answer. Jerry stands still, looks around. The television is on, but that is the only sound that eerily plays in the home. He sets the beer on the dining table near a salt shaker. He becomes very concerned, yet puzzled at the silence. He searches around the home, inside and out, for Regina, but she is nowhere to be found.
He goes to the kitchen phone to call a few friends and relatives to ask if maybe they've seen her. The first person he decides to call is Allen. When Allen answers the phone, Jerry asks if he or his wife know about Regina's whereabouts. Just as Allen is about to answer, Jerry becomes stunned and silent. He stops all movement and just sits there staring at something he should have noticed earlier on the dining table.
It is the salt shaker, the glass kind with a metal top, but it is what's beneath the salt shaker that has Jerry more concerned. Beneath the salt shaker, he sees an envelope with these words written on it, "I'm sorry Jerry."
Allen is still talking to Jerry on the phone, trying to get more information, but Jerry's thoughts are on that envelope. Jerry takes a moment to awake from his deep focus on the envelope and realize Allen's been talking, asking questions on the phone.
Jerry interrupts Allen with these soft spoken words, "Uh, hey Everything's okay. Maybe I'll tell ya all about it sometime."
Then he hangs up the phone with no further explanation to Allen. He scoots aside the salt shaker, picks up the envelope and reads the outside of it again, "I'm sorry Jerry." His heart begins to break. He knows this is not good news. He's got a very bad feeling lingering within him about this envelope.
He reluctantly presses himself to open the envelope. He removes the lined note book paper folded within. He begins to sniffle and get watery eyed. He hangs his shoulders low. He unfolds the note and it is Regina's handwriting. Her first words are, "I am so sorry, Jerry. I really loved you, but ..."
Suddenly, he stops reading and crumbles up the note paper. He then places his fingers from his left hand to his forehead, his other hand holding down the crunched letter. He is worried, thinking what to do next.
After a few deep breaths, he re-opens the now wrinkled letter and continues reading. From the letter, he learns that Thomas had been in town for two weeks and while Jerry was away at work each day, Regina and Thomas were re-igniting an old romance. However, on this Friday, while Jerry was at work, Regina packed up some clothes and a few other things, and decided to leave town with her old flame, Thomas.
She explains, she never really got over Thomas, and that she always believed that she and Thomas were meant to be together. She apologizes to Jerry again and again, and hopes maybe someday he'll understand.
She claims she still loves Jerry, but she simply loves Thomas more, and thus she made her decision to go back with Thomas. Very inconsiderately, she never once wishes Jerry a happy birthday in her letter.
The most revealing part of this letter comes when Jerry notices how she signed it. She signed it, "With love and apologies, Regina Marie."
That's when he realizes something. It came to his mind what Thomas had told him earlier at the liquor store. Those words that Thomas' spoke, now burned in Jerry's thoughts, "I got a new gal friend back in Texas, her name is MARIE. She's alright. She's everything a man could ask for."
Jerry never knew that Regina's middle or nick name was Marie. She never told him nor ever wrote it anywhere before. Now it seems there's a lot of things Jerry never knew about Regina.

Fauci blames virus surge on U.S. not shutting down completely
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Top infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci on Monday ascribed the surge in U.S. coronavirus cases to the country’s failure to shut down completely, then a rush to reopen too soon, and urged a commitment to guidelines to snuff out the disease.
He stressed basic protections including physical distancing, wearing masks, avoiding crowds and washing hands. “Those things, as simple as they are, can turn it around. I think we can do that and that’s what we’ve got to do,” he said.
Fauci, who has issued firm warnings during the coronavirus surge, encouraged states to follow specific guidelines put forth by White House coronavirus health experts laying out distinct phases for easing restrictions.
“We did not shut down entirely and that’s the reason why when we went up,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview with Stanford Medicine.
“We started to come down and then we plateaued at a level that was really quite high - about 20,000 infections a day. Then as we started to reopen, we’re seeing the surges that we’re seeing today as we speak in California, your own state, in Arizona, in Texas, in Florida and several other states.”
Many U.S. states began reopening their economies without meeting the criteria in the guidelines.
“Unfortunately, it did not work very well for us,” Fauci said, citing well publicized incidents of people crowding into bars or not wearing masks at close quarters.
Fauci said he was confident the United States would get a handle on the virus “if we step back, you don’t necessarily need to shut down again, but pull back a bit, and then proceed in a very prudent way of observing the guidelines, of going from step to step.”

For those among you wondering, that which follows is a fictional hypothetical outlook upon Cloud Visions. For those who don't believe in such, let me explain, Such believes in you.
I spent much of last night awake contemplating Spider Speak. And I do not refer to Physical Spiders, I reference those best defined as Task Masters, those who stand guard and watch over this World. I worked it out at some point but for now the exact manner of explanation is still percolating deep in my thought processes. For now I will do what I normally do and talk of distraction.
I have known group names of girls growing up. There was Helen, the first girl I had a physical crush on. She was the second of three. The first is my first cousin Helen and the third the Helen who stood guard over me when I was detained at this State’s major Hospital. That Helen, who incidentally looked much like my first cousin, thought she was protecting me, and keeping me safe. That was until her orientation when she was pulled away while I was being transferred to an interim holding cell, room. They told her the story used to break into my house and remove me from it. I read it in her eyes during the 2 minutes they allocated her to say her piece, (for me deceiving her and making her consider me with care and compassion). I remember her standing in the doorway looking at me neither of us saying anything. It was not my place to say anything and so I did not. I was kind of hoping she had let go and said what was on her mind. I didn’t work out what they were doing until after I was released from Psychiatric Detention, Non Court Ordered of course, Hospital Administration Ordered just to show me just who is in control. I thought their assumption cute.
During those two days in holding, in between chatting with my very own personal guard, I began contemplating the time.TiiM equation. I discussed it with Helen as a first stage TiiM implant thought. The second was achieved in silence. Bitches.
Monika was not working that day. Monika was a particularly kind and loving Nurse who I fell in love with the instant I saw who she really was. She, for some reason, had taken it upon her self to look after me while I was being processed like an incidental lump of meat I had become. I saw for some reason because our first communication, initiated by me, was not particularly ‘pc’. I could not believe it when it worked. Although, somehow I knew Monika would react, well I hoped, the way she had. Other than that I knew she would react. I figured that was why she was not there when they transferred me. She’d return to work, I’d be gone, she may have asked my whereabouts, told gone, and moved on. By that stage I had warned off the paedophile guard and been handed over to the Helen Guard.
Monika is the first and we shall call Her Tir. “I luv girls with big breasts.”
In my entire life I have only met one Tanya, a drop dead gorgeous Brunette / Auburn haired Goddess who by the way, the absolute majority of guys I knew accepted she was so far out of their league, they were still trying to work out how to fill out the application to buy an attendance ticket.
I think it’s strange that I have met names in groups of three, three Sue’s; the first my first actual girlfriend in high school. The second, perhaps the most fun and sexually curious girl in my Third year, Year 10 class and a different Sue girlfriend when I was about 25.
Strangely, there are three names who I have only ever met once. Julia is such a name. Julia is a real person. Julia is a funny girl; intelligent and quick of thought. Let us place Julia ‘es’. She is not the prettiest of the three but she holds potential, shall we say.
With that I invoke She who has for reasons I am sure are not of her own choosing in her failure to show; the combined Three Nature traits of Ra’te’Ka; she previously referenced as Tnaa, Lazy Girl, and Soe.
New Jersey, for instance, appear to have contracted Covid-19 a second time almost two months after fully recovering from their first infection. While there’s still much we don’t understand about immunity to this new illness, a small but growing number of cases like this suggest the answer is yes.
