    Re: 22 March

    TG, sorry to hear about hubs, hope you get tested as well. just so you know, glad you're better.
    Mick, Rump is a moron. what I don't get is why so many are drinking the cool aide.
    Det, there are always "alternative facts" when I heard that phrase, I knew we were in trouble.
    PQ, same here, cooled off a bit, probably not to your extreme!
    Lav, being careful, I contact with people is pretty minimal but it only takes one occasion! you do the same, being careful, that is..
    Pauly, how you holding up there?

    rainy cold day here so computing away.
    be well and stay well, friends

    Re: 22 March

    Greetings all,

    I actually went & picked up my grandsons & brought them here for a few hours. Their mother is up to her eye balls making arrangement for her Dad whois to be discharged from the rehab tomorrow. Hereís the thing - he still hasnít seen an orthopedic surgeon about his fractured ankle. Heís no weight bearing on that foot & leg so how can he go home to NJ alone??? He canít walk, climb stairs, drive, grocery shop or cook. WTF??? Staying at their house for a while might have been a possibility until my son called & said he was sent home halfway thru his 24 hr shift today because someone in his fire house tested positive for Covid-19. This is going to be a freak show trying to figure all this out

    Cyn, Iím keeping you & your husband in my thoughts & prayers. Yes, I am at the point of praying for everyone.

    PQ, Sun here yesterday, rain today, sun to return tomorrow. Confusing, haha! At least maybe the guys pouring new concrete for us can get back & finish the job tomorrow, haha!

    Pauly, glad to see you & hope things are OK.

    Mick, sounds like youíre about to have a busy house there. Better to work from home when possible for anyone.
    This virus is spreading quickly. Todayís #s for my state went from 851 to 1100. Wish we could all stay inside & stay safe.

    Det, hope to see more of your awesome pics on FB
    Keep yourself healthy & safe too.

    Hi to Sam & Pie.

    Stay healthy everyone!

    Mae all -

    Glad to hear how everyone is hanging in...

    Mick, good luck with having Julie home... maybe she can take breaks and patrol the rabbits! Redoing all that wiring sounds a bit daunting...good luck!

    Lav, holy sh*t that situation sounds terrible... ridiculous that he is being discharged! I'm SO sorry to hear your son has been close to a C-19 person in the firehouse... they are all heroes for doing this work, but the risk for them is enormous... I'm sending prayers his way, and good luck to DIL and father. Sheesh, so nice of you to take the boys...

    Pauly, you are so sweet to send wishes, thanks. How you doing?

    Det, did the big house job come through? Hope so .,, I want to find you on FB ... Instagram... sounds like your stuff is beautiful.

    PPQ, sorry about the weather... do you get seed catalogs to start with for planting? I used to live in MN, and the seed catalogs were a life line.

    Sam, glad to hear you have stuff to do on the cold rainy days... better than growing outside!

    Hello to all else stopping by...

    Well, we drove an hour up into NY State to get tested. Very professional state troopers everywhere... gowned nurses at different stations... every so often I thought that I was on a Hollywood set for a movie... everything looked so surreal. We'll see in 6 days, though there is a 35% false negative rate, so we're just assuming that we have it and are quarantined for 2 weeks... better to keep all safe. Hubs really struggling with fever and chills, poor guy, I am watching for any respiratory issues. Pauly, I needed you- he was so desperate for a haircut that he let me cut his hair! That was a first for me in haircutting, it turned out OK, but was nerve-wracking!!!

    Tired, so off to bed early for me. More cooking, cleaning, dog care and laundry tomorrow, though I hope to get stuff done on my business - crucial, must keep it a priority.

    Sleep tight all, or good morning to you, whichever...

    Happy Wednesday at the zoo ABeroooonies!

    Oh my, so much happening everywhere. Be great if going to a meditation was doable but it simply isn't. I must do more of the home version for sure.

    Treegirl, I'm so glad you are being treated well by the medical staff...that's encouraging to hear. Hold on tight, you certainly are far from alone. And kudos for your
    first hairdo! Pauly would be impressed and I know I am.

    PPQ, what an awesome article on the photographer, thanks so much. I do charity type work often but I really like this angle so much. I may try and contact him.

    Lav, any pics of your handcrafted masks? I'll try to get the earloops on ours tomorrow and snap some 'who is that masked man?' selfies please tell me someone remembers
    that line....

    it sounds like financial relief is actually happening. whew, that will be so appreciated let me tell you. Mind you I'm used to operating in very little these days.

    The big house shoot was crazy but very good, only took about 3 hours as I was hustling. The home owners were quite wealthy and had a nice table setup by the front door with nitrile gloves, N95 masks
    and booties. I felt kinda speshull.....;P

    Mick, thanks as always for keeping the humor level up!

    Sam, hang in there amigo. We shall press on somehow.

    ok, must put away my things, charge my other things, and probably clean some things....

    be well loves

    Re: 22 March

    morning all
    hope everyone is doing goodly, going up to set points and located the new parking lot for Park service parking lot. I've helping another surveyor do this project. They're almost finished building it. It's new parking for a local hike here called Old Rag Mountain. It's a great hike but very crowded. I haven't been in a long time but there's some serious boulders.

    spring is springing, right purty out there!

    "That will be £1.20," I told him, handing him the roll.

    Re: 22 March

    Good evening friends,

    Today was nice & sunny, perfect day for a long walk with the doggie
    The guys finished up the concrete work today, looks great. We told them to come back next week & tear out the old pavers out front of our house & do their magic there as well. I am too old to be crawling around on my hands & knees pulling weeds growing up thru the pavers. The ones right in front of the porch have sunk making it a potential hazard for some old person like me, haha!

    Cyn, sorry you had to travel for testing. Things are so messed up because the country was so unprepared. We know exactly who to blame for this fiasco!
    My son & everyone in his firehouse are quarantined for 2 weeks. I suppose other firehouses will be covering their territory. I really hope for quick healing for you & your husband.

    Det, nice to hear you are rubbing elbows with the rich folks these days, Lol. Good that you enjoyed the photo shoot.
    I’ll see about getting a pic of the masks.

    Sam, I’ve been to Shenandoah a few times, such an awesome place! How are the allergens doing there? I’m feeling sneezy myself the past few days up this way! Enjoy the beautiful views!

    Mick, knowing that I pushed myself to quit when my first grandson was born 11 years ago makes me very happy. I can look at him & feel good about my decision & I know he will never see me touch a drink.
    Thank you for the poem you left over in General, that was very nice

    Hello to Pauly, PQ & Pie!

    Wishing everyone a nice night & stay home where you’re safe from viral loads.

    MAE ALL...internet has been off and on all day. Thankfully it's not me but my provider.

    Sam...had a look at the link, nice hiking spot. I think that's funny the lot is now open to the closed trail.

    Mick...I have been playing online bridge up until today! Hopefully will be able to get back to the tables soon. LOL

    Lav...and another year under your belt, you go girl. I hope your son is ok.

    Shout out to Pauly, TG and Det. Keeping this short so I don't loose it. Will see you all tomorrow....PPQP

    Re: 22 March

    Mae all --

    Thanks for the well-wishes all. Pretty tough day here - hubs is really struggling, hi temps interspersed with drenching sweats and chills... poor guy, he is a wreck. I was worried about the high temps, but we had a tele-meeting with her, and when she saw him she said he is best off at home convalescing, whew, what a relief. So, onward for another week at least.

    Lav, congrats! You are a rock star. Glad you are getting new pavers, yay! Crossing fingers for your son - is he sequestered from family?

    Pauly, hope you are doing OK... I need a video on cutting hair! But it doesn't look terrible (who could tell when he's had to stay in bed all day?)

    PPQ, how 's it going - are you working from home? Meals OK?

    Det, how exciting about that job... may it lead to many more!!!

    Sam, that's sad/funny about the parking without the hikers... glad that spring is beautiful there.

    Mick, so sweet that Julie is seeking your guidance... love that! Thanks for all the funnies... happy gardening...

    Stay safe all -
