The last time my wife and I went out for a restaurant meal was on March 6. This little hole in the wall is run by an elderly Chinese couple. They must be in their early 80s. The food doesn't look like much, but it was excellent, genuine home cooking.

Well, I saw this on a car in the parking lot at work in mid March.

Mine are all normal since I'm essential..the only thing that's really changed for me is I haven't been inside a bar or restaurant in almost two months, except to take food out

One of the last times I rode the subway back in March. I was thinking "Wow, if I have to choose between someone who looks ill and get exposed to a virus, or next to this guy and be exposed to whatever the hell might be on that jacket...I don't know.".

Superb Owl party with neighbors on our patio.

Booze, blueberry shisha in the hookah, and later, scotch and cigars.

Nothing has changed. We're homeboddys. I go to work, come home and that's it. I get gas and cigarettes and beer when necessary. We'll have to go to the grocery store sometime soon.

They're even better when removed from the plastic package, marinated, and smoked.

But hey, who am I to judge??

Too depressing to look, but I have a feeling we will all be able to resume normal activity before you know it. Just a feeling. Could be through a vaccine, a treatment, herd immunity. It will happen. Think positive, people.

Remember museums? Museums were pretty awesome.

What an exhibit at a museum looked like in the Long Long Ago:

It could also be simply through the magic of hearing about Sweden.
Or perhaps the liberals will finally get their way and have us all killed, leaving us safer than ever before.

All my pictures are of my cats. I could post one from March, I could post one from today, as nobody would know the difference.

Seriously, except for wearing a mask when I shop, which is much rarer these days, Covid hasn't changed my life in the least. I have cats, I watch tv, I caregive for my mom.

I have about 3 dozen pics related to work, so the 2 feet of snow we got in late January is about the most recent "normal" pic I have. I wish I had the one my daughter took on my wife's phone. That one had me on the hood of the Jeep, shoveling the snow off. Way easier than a snow brush, except for the 2-3 times I fell. Thank God the snow was so deep.

I made a new band out of vintage grosgrain ribbon for my new hat, since the fake leather band it came with sucked.

You don't wear those nice coats on the jobsite if you can avoid it. You're probably safe...

Found this at my local FLGS...it's for a game called Gaslands (post apocalyptic miniatures game of vehicle combat).   Was letting my friend know this was available.   Haven't done any F2F gaming since...no clue when we're going to again.  FLGS has no idea when they're going to reopen their gaming room.  Taken on March 10.

This is my son and his girlfriend on their first and last date. He wanted to go out with her for months and finally found the courage to ask. This was taken two days before we started getting locked down.

I have some pictures from a work trip in Las Vegas the week of the Feb 24th. I got back on Feb 27th, and then on the 29th they announced the first cases at the Life Care Center of Kirkland, about 10 miles away from where I live.

I was in Phx for work the week they decided to cancel all work travel. First week of March. As long as I got out of Phx before it hit 100, I was fine.

Are they still an item, even during quarantine? That would be one of the few good stories to come out of this mess.
