We made it. We're pass Hump Day.

Today is special. Grocery day and roll up the carts. Thats it. Thats what being retired fills my exciting schedule  with. I look forward to smashing adventures like this. Now I can wait till next week?????
But, I'm healthy, somewhat good looking ( if i look sideways at the mirror) and have a warm kitty kat to keep me warm. What more could i need?  This nasty virus to pass way of its own accord!

This is April ist. But not much to fool about.

Yeah, it's Hump Day. So what?? It's also April's Fool day too. But not much to fool about. This is serious business. This virus is changing the world.  Discovering what we know and don't know. What we're prepared for and what we don't have any idea of what we're doing. Scary times.  On the Club front,
I've got to come up with something useful for the QRM newsletter. Something that will get people excited, but can still be completed at home.  I'll pull on my thinking cap and see what pops out.
Keep safe.

It's Processors Birthday.

I haven't heard from Processor in a few years. She was in New York and moved. and forgot to blog at her new location.  I miss her. She designed my blog icon. She really had talent creating icons. I hope she is ok.
Here we are, right between Blue Monday and HUMP Wednesday. and not hardly a mouse is stiring.
it looks like we might just be stationed like this through the summer!  I see the "WET MARKET", in China, where this virus was created, is back to its old ways. Buy a bowl of soup with a dead bat on the side!  They will never learn.
ok, I'm off.  STAY SAFE. Your important to me.. to us.

sad Monday. But, Happy Birthday to CuppyCate.

this is not exactly the way i had planed to spend my Monday. Do the laundry, clean stuff and brush the cat. I'm tired and tired of watching 400 channels of "nothing" on TV. and i really am tired of hearing about all my community people getting sick.  I guess i'm whining???
or just tired.
Now to see way my vhf radio isn't making it to the repeater????

Here goes our spring. till June??

Wow. what a drastic event we're in. Now might be a good time to take stock of our lifes. what do we want to do differently, once we're through this? I can think of oodles of things i will do differently. Gosh knows, i have time to do it this time. Of course, now, the scooter cat has his own ideas of what needs to be improved. Like, more brushing, combing, more treats and i can let him sleep on my lap any time he wants to.

We kind of missed TGIF. Everything is closed anyway.

So here we are. Faced with another stay inside weekend. But after seeing how sick people can get, I'm happy I’m ok and I’ll gladly stay inside.
This is one nasty bug. But we're beating it, if not by creating a vaccine, by starving it: limit the infection of people; stay inside.
Now I think we all know what they invented video games. YAY Us. Try Skyrim or FF-14.
Just keep your mind and imagination busy. It all helps.

The cat was nice....he let me sleep in today.

The cat was indeed nice today. He let me sleep in. Till my grocery pal showed up. Then I jumped (ok, fell was more like it) out of bed... we then went up to Meijer WOW, oodles of empty gondolas, even the Ramon Noodles shelve was almost empty!  Now that is something I never expected to see. Strange, the next aisle over, canned soup was lonely and not much had been bought.
Funny, who would have expected that this is what it feels like to be the middle of a history changing time? I think this must be really different. Normal??  I don't think so. A new normal, yes. "Do you think we can learn from it?"

This is what America is great for...."Pulling together!"

This is what it is like, when we all pull together.  This is what makes this country great. "US!”
The thing I wish for, is that the virus dies out, and /or the scientists discover a workable vaccine against Covid-19.
Today I rolled out the trash cart and my neighbor told me she and her husband were quentined. I  told her we ALL are quentined!  This is what we all must do to destroy this nasty virus.  Hard to believe it was only a week ago the world was just reporting how bad this thing was. Now look...
I'm waiting right now, for our U.S. Senate to vote on the emergency relieve measure. 2 trillion dollars. And it’s only a start. No, life isn't going to return to normal in 14 days. We'll come face to face with a new normal. But one we all contributed to.
Be safe

In the middle of past Monday and the day before Hump day. Must be Tuesday.

Sunny Tuesday. What a week. i'm looking at all the cars that don't drive pass my house. It's so quiet. Except for the ROBO-CALLS.  What people will do for a buck.
Tonight is net night. I've already done my daily empty out the cats litter and changed the vacuum bag. It was packed! dust and cat hair. oh well.
ok, time to stay inside and keep safe.

Yes, we're all staying home, safe and in bed.

Our Governor made a smart move today: ordered us to stay home and safe during this virus crisis. Hopefully, this will help stop the spread of this nasty bug. I hope this stops, or slows the progress of this covid-19.
Me? I'm staying home and planning on how best to utilize my time at home. Designing and creating a nice web site for Ham of the Year, would be a good use of my time. Of course, Scooter the cat has other ideas: jump onto my lap and promptly go to sleep, as the while as I pet him!   Animals. It's Monday. I almost forgot. Life has changed so much. So this is what it's like to live through an historic event. Strange, but educational. Nothing to make fun at or laugh, but it's interesting. You couldn't plan this.
Stay home, stay safe.
