Boy, my dogs sure are happy. Have had the time to do some fine tuning on some of their training and they are loving all the attention.


In their world, they have no idea what's going on in ours.

I was thinking the same thought yesterday, while watching a robin splashing around in the bird bath.

I'm not coping well at all. I'm stressed out. I've lost my appetite and I'm losing weight. My outlook is turning pretty bleak.

That sounds soooooo upper middle class angsty!

Just kidding! Keep your head up, fine sir!

Today I ordered a fifth of Fox River Michigan Whiskey from A2 Distilling. Curbside pickup is tomorrow.

Class distinctions no longer seem to matter. We're all in this together.

Strangely, I don't even enjoy a drink anymore. It doesn't even taste right.

So what’s the first move? Grocery store to breathe nasal droplets? Bar to breathe nasal droplets? Menards to buy bricks?

Tomorrow is Good Friday. Nothing's open.

I'll be taking a long walk.

I’d take the bike, probably a lot you’ve not seen for a bit.

The last time I saw anything around here was Jan 2.

And I would certainly be jogging around town on January 2nd. Other than your voluntary confinement, what is your town doing?

Our confinement wasn't voluntary. It was mandatory. Anyone entering Canada from another country must quarantine for 14 days.

I can't jog, due to a deformed right foot. Bicycle is my preferred way to get around. But it's going to be pretty cool this weekend. So I'll walk.

Pretty much everything is closed up here. Food stores pharmacies and liquor stores are still open.

Churches, movie theatres and sports venues are all closed.

Someone told me they've even closed the parks.

I hate this. The whole world is toxic.

I'm currently drinking a Blackrocks 51K... what I wouldn't give to be in Marquette about right now...

My vehicle is coming up on four years old. My plan had been to start shopping for a new one when I got back home at the end of April.

Here I am home a month early and a new vehicle is the last thing on my mind. I don't even know if the dealerships are even open. Somehow it would seem indecent driving home in a brand new car at a time like this.

Don't even need a car anymore. Nowhere to go.

51k is ok, if you ever have the chance to get a taste of Batch 500 from Brewery Tera Firma, you'll forget all about Blackrock.

I had a growler of triple from Rare Bird this week. That's tasty.
