A day to day account for 3 weeks is one thing, it sounds like they're going to order shelter in place until the beginning of May...AHHHHHHHHH!!!! While it seems that that's the answer to stopping this, is it? It's not for me to say, all I know is I better turn my shitty attitude around … Continue reading Day 15: Another month!!
This was supposed to be until April 7th in the Bay Area, no idea now as it keeps getting worse. With the rain, any attempt to get outside is a no-go too leaving my options to very few at home now. The rain should clear up next week, that part will be temporary at least. … Continue reading Day 13: No end in sight
We lay around, go for walks, eat, lay around. Let's see if I can write something positive today as we crawl to the supposed backside of this shelter in place. The statistics in the U.S. have stayed the same, 2% death rate according to my calculations. Ran the numbers for Italy, it's 10%. Looks like … Continue reading Day 12: It’s a dog’s life
If this has taught me anything it's that as unsocial as I can be at times, the internet isn't a good replacement for human interaction. I got our piano group set up on Zoom, just to see if it was a viable replacement for our cancelled meeting. Besides the video freezing up, the sound worked … Continue reading Day 8: Zoom meetings
Before 9/11, my mom had retired then worked 2 jobs. She was still substitute teaching, then she got a job with American Airlines again in the unaccompanied minors section. She had been a stewardess in the late 50's, early 60's and had to quit when she got married. When she retired from teaching, they hired … Continue reading Day 5: Our lives are changed for awhile
I'll have to start posting pretty pictures again, that's the only thing that gets hits. By hits I mean one or two hits. I haven't been able to take pics, I've been organizing them though and have almost all of them uploaded from various spots. That's what I do when my back goes out, lay … Continue reading OK, OK
No real writing today, just going to post pretty pics of my year. Or at least the ones that look pretty to me 🙂 January: Drove my son back to Las Cruces, New Mexico through Bisbee, AZ & Manhattan Beach. Tail end is Tahoe. February: My 'hood March: Drove to Seattle to help with my … Continue reading 2019 Photos
This in itself is practice... Cruising through one of the surviving Barnes & Noble stores the other day I found this sale book called, "Coffee Break Writing" by John Gillard. There's hardly a time I buy a hard copy book anymore, when Kindle came out I was one of the first converts. Everyone labeled me … Continue reading Writing practice
I've been blogging for over a year now on this wordpress blog, previously on blogspot. It's been good to get my brain working in the morning, making me a little more positive than I usually would be if I were writing for myself only. It's been a great creative outlet, yet I haven't made much … Continue reading Time to Move on ?
Last year MIA in May was declared, it was almost 3 weeks of driving back from New Mexico through Northern Arizona, hitting the places I'd never been to. My route from Las Cruces was Santa Fe, Farmington (don't recommend), Four Corners, Monument Valley, Lake Powell, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Mammoth, then home. We had an … Continue reading Planning next adventure!!
