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
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
One more week, some tough decisions to make. Gearing up to fly myself down in a small plane to L.A. on Friday for Mother's Day weekend with my 83 year old mom who I haven't seen since this all started, she's been in isolation this whole time. She's already survived her 1st cousins on her … Continue reading Day 48: Do I see my mom for Mother’s Day?
The original goal to get me through this was the Bisbee stair climb in Oct. to see my family. I've spent this whole shelter in place time training for that, until last week when my back went out. It's OK, still planning it - it just might be a slow walk with a lot of … Continue reading Day 42: Dreaming & planning
Still bed ridden, a lot better than yesterday at least. More sore from laying in bed than my actual back at this point. 2 things I love most, darting off places and actually getting out and doing stuff - gone in a second with that sprint the other day & this COVID lock down. My … Continue reading Day 38: Or 380?
AHHHHHHHHH!!! This always comes out of nowhere, takes me completely out of the game. As sucky as this whole shelter in place thing has been, at least I've been running and getting in shape. I've lost 5 lbs through all this, was going to come out the other side ready for a bikini in Hawaii. … Continue reading Day 37: Back’s out, I’m out
Why not? There's nothing to do. My friend is totally into this, she sent me my chart this morning according to my birth time/place. It's all a little fascinating, there's a little bit of truth to everything. Not totally into it, pretty interesting though what she brought up about the Saturn cycle. It takes … Continue reading Day 32: Astrology charts
This is the ONLY thing on the news, as of last night 45 deaths in the U.S., yet it's a total panic and all anyone is even talking about. To be clear, my family is freaked out too. My oldest is calling me every day, calling my mom and making sure she doesn't leave the … Continue reading Panic in the U.S.
Before going to Mexico there were a few rumblings about Corona virus, maybe 2 people in the Bay Area had been diagnosed...NBD. My friend came from Seattle to meet me in L.A. with her baby, they both had that child care sniffles when they got to my mom's house. I'll admit to being a little … Continue reading Home to Hysteria
That fire was enough excitement for one trip, we keep re-telling it and are all in total shock that only that one roof burned down with no other major damage. What causes that? Is it a culmination of knowledge or just plain old luck? Everything was slow, fast motion...me seeing it and yelling, "Fire!! Get … Continue reading Winding down my surf career 🙂
