Today was the day I heard the Boom. Yeah, the disruption of normal life is under way in a serious way. Adjustments at the job that pays the bills. My better half’s work in the health industry is in high gear. I picked up a friend today who works overnight at a major food chain and he says the panic buying is under way.

Just the people on the road with their minds elsewhere. Schools, festivals, political rallies and other events cancelled or postponed. The simple way we great each other changing by the day. Further changes are coming. Who know what this will do to our economy but that is the least of my worries now.

So what will I be doing. I’m not panicking, but I’m keeping a very watchful eye and will try to do that social distancing to the best of my ability. At least for a short period till this is under wraps. For someone reminded me that I’m old today. Someone my own age. And with some breathing issues due to seasonal changes and having had the big C twice I’m not as strong as my youthful counterparts.

I’m just going to try to live normally but think about what I can do to limit catching it and act on it. The next few weeks will tell how much trouble we are in I believe.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Cheap gas is nice but it you can’t go anywhere whats the point?
  • I worry about my better half working in a health care facility.
  • I bet people have a new appreciation for cleaning crews.
  • I’m excited about hump day.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
