Now the specifics:
Last week end the grand kids stayed over Saturday night so Sunday was a big breakfast morning. Enjoyable indeed.
One positive outcome of the COVID-19 is a lot of work is getting done in our yard. Monday we were looking for things to get out for so we started digging at the dirt pile the pool installers left behind. After digging awhile Kathy decided she wanted to take out some dead pine trees that the deer have destroyed. So, I got the chain saw and chain in the back of the truck and brought that over to do the job. A hard days work but got a lot of things accomplished.
Monday got a call from the tax guy that our stuff was done. So I went over and paid for it so they would do the filing for us. Did some re-arrangement of finances the later part of 2018 which appears to pay off as we are getting money back from both federal and state.
I have been checking the radio bands occasionally this week and they suck. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen them this bad. Makes me wonder why I went to the trouble of setting my stuff again.
Wednesday I did some chores around the house in the morning then took off on the motorcycle after lunch. Rode over 110 miles. Great day. Stopped at Rural King during the ride to pick up some things.
Thursday I spent the day doing laundry, cleaning up the kitchen and rebuilding a laptop for Jule so the grand children won’t have so much conflict when doing their distance learning.
I think my friend Gary is really feeling the isolation. He is getting more and more off the wall with a lot of his comments. I guess the best I can do is make sure I’m on the radio every night at 6:30 to give him someone to talk with.
The new Megexcel computer has been working well. It had been rebooting itself but that seems to have stopped now. It was never a problem as it was doing it late at night.
Otherwise the only other thing happening is my continued work on the garage door system I am building.
No COVID-19 this week. I think I’ve said it all and everyone knows my opinions.
Hope this finds everyone well. Please, stay safe and healthy.
