Another freakish night/morning. Spent the day clearing piles of dry grass in case of people coming from downtown Walnut Creek & use it as a fire starter before I went back to my son's house. He doesn't have cable, we couldn't see the local news just stuff on Twitter and FB. It looked like Walnut … Continue reading I Gotta calm down
Today we should be in a state of lifting restrictions, possibly sitting on a bench in public? Personally, I was gearing up to give good vibes to my friend on his first day of chemo. Now I'm f'ing petrified!! I don't watch TV or news during the day, part of that is for my own … Continue reading It gets worse!!
Really, the state of humanity is just taking a nose dive 🙁 The only way I'm keeping sane is by not watching news until the end of the day, then follow it up with Seinfeld reruns. It's my version of hiding under the covers until this is all over. My friend J goes for his … Continue reading Rain storms & riots
On my last blog, was shocked and so upset - still am. J and his W came over for a social distancing brunch, outside, with my boys. This is going to royally suck, my boys are in their 20's and they just don't really comprehend what J is about to undergo. He's optimistic, he's always … Continue reading Devastated
Trying to power through this whole thing by studying for my IFR, it might be the slow road since I'm older and the practical is on ILS/DME runways with the last thing being GPS approaches. I have decent hand/eye, not just for my age. We've been on the SIM, yesterday we headed out in the … Continue reading Really 2020?? It gets worse??
The Bay Area is opening up, we've been in it the longest. A lot is still closed, gyms & salons are still closed. Supposedly retail opens up for curbside only, which will be interesting. Walnut Creek is kind of shopping central, we have a lot of high end shops here including a Neiman Marcus with … Continue reading Day 65: So ends my COVID chapter blog
Empty Cannery Row pics & the fly by as profile pic Besides the crazy hotel night where my neighbors were continually knocking on my door, starting at 10p and scaring the crap out of me, this has been a nice mini-trip. Would I say it's safe to travel? I don't know about commercial airline travel … Continue reading Day 60: Putting my big toe in the water
Because my flight to L.A. went so well, door to door to see my mom without interacting with anyone, after Mothers Day I really needed some personal isolation. There are a few places that are my favs for just hanging out and long walks, Monterey is a place I come quite a few times a … Continue reading Day 58: NOT time to travel yet!!
My mom is fine, we got out a little just to get her out of the house she's been locked into for the past 2 mos. with this squirrel as her BFF. The grocery stores have calmed down, the beaches are still all closed. It was Cinco de Mayo when I flew down there, was … Continue reading Day 54: Mom’s OK
Perfect flying day, it was now or never to fly down to L.A. solo. I kept checking the forecast for Friday and it kept switching up on me from sunny to cloudy. This beach fog is impossible to time, it'll be a few sunny days and then fog forevermore. It's easier to visually time it … Continue reading Day 50: In L.A., @ my mom’s
