How I have adapted to a life in self-isolation.

Day 1275

     Here we are, still in Louisiana, as we sit and sit and sit and sit. Louisiana has closed its boarders, we can’t go out, and no one can come in. Currently this is in effect until May 1st.

     Although it’s not the end of the world, it most likely is a tectonic shift.

     Barbara is so excited – it’s time to take out the garbage. She couldn’t decide what to wear?

     I must confess, a couple of weeks ago I went to Walmart and hoarded some essentials: Ice cream, pop-corn, coca-cola, candy and cookies.

     Now, I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.

     My body has absorbed so much soap and disinfectant lately that when I pee it cleans the toilet.

     Most of the people we were playing games left the first of the month before the travel band.

     We even had to give up our wife swapping club.

     It seems a shame to have this blog and nothing to write about. I am open to suggestions. When I was working, (can you believe that has been 4 years ago?), I wrote many articles for the County law bulletin, and some magazines. However, I don’t think you would be interested in law related items. No doubt those articles are no longer relevant, as the law has changed much in those 4 years, and I certainly haven’t kept up to date.

     Well, time to go, I think I will make myself a strawberry milkshake, sit outside in my rocking chair and watch movies on my iPad.

  1. I enjoy your blogs even when there’s nothing to write about. Tornado alerts have begun. Janie posted on facebook that they had to take shelter in the bathhouse (Cleveland, TN) at 1 in the morning. Mary & Rod are at Moonshine Creek (I’d be drinking that!) in Balsam NC I researched weather there and there is no record of tornados, floods or fires in that area. No one to play games with yet. 😦

    1. Hi Joyce, I have an idea. Let’s all get on FaceTime. We all have dice. We can play Farkle. Each person rolls their dice and show the results on their phone. I think it’s Barbara’s turn to keep score.

  2. If you get out of there, I would head north to Wyoming or the Dakota’s where the virus is much more manageable and the weather after 5/1 is great. Have a safe day.

  3. It was great talking to Barbara recently, although it now seems eons ago! I love your chairs as they look like the kind to “snooze in!” I’m sorry you are quarantined in LA, although I presume if you were here, you’d be quarantined at Bar Harbor?!! Sadly, this virus has not been a good situation for anyone, and in some cases a deadly circumstance. I did talk with our friend, RR, and she was glad to know I made contact with Barbara. She has had her hands full, but they’re doing as best as possible. I’m still recuperating from my 2nd new knee, but it’s moving very well now. Working on getting my back to calm down after the changes in my walking gaits!! Be as it may, I haven’t made a “bid” since Feb. and do miss it. Would love to set up a game or two if and when you’re back in HC! God Bless. . .stay safe. . . stay healthy. . . and stay in your 5th wheel! Thanks for keeping everyone posted. . .
