"They" were infringing on my space in the Costco checkout line

Seven feet to the front and rear

Twelve inches on the sides

I launched into a dry coughing fit worthy of an Oscar.

Then I checked

Twelve feet to the front and rear

No one to the sides

LOL! Just be careful-you never know when the "illness police" will come and take you away! [emoticon]


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Heavy dose of Niacin before trip to Costco also proved effective.

I got sad news yesterday. A dear friend that has been treated for different cancers before knew he had an issue and because he could not get in for evaluation until a couple days ago, he did not know that this time is was an aggressive cancer. It could have been if evaluated sooner, but it can no longer be treated. He expects to not make it to spring.

I hate to think what the real cause of the Wuhan panic is.....

Matt, there are always miracles. To give up hope lessens the quality of the time remaining.

There have been many ramifications from Covid including starting a new business heavily based on Florida’s tourism closing it 2 weeks before turning the insurance and W2 payroll on.

A current ramification is one of the lady’s my wife works with signed with us to build her kitchen and had to break the news to them this week the cabinet manufacturer in Indiana is having problems with Covid at their plant and all I have is basically a guess on a late December delivery date. Wonderful people near retirement with a huge family and they won’t have their dream kitchen for Xmas. At least everyone in our circle is still healthy and that’s good enough for me.

Toilet paper and paper towels and some staples are now disappearing from Wal Mart shelves.
I don't do stores
Kids went yesterday and reported on the empty paper goods shelves. Then there was a mention on some news site of it yesterday evening.
