    Yep its hot and sunny today, nice breeze blowing though, hope no coronavirus are hitching a ride on that breeze (did I say that), got a little bit of a sunburn from mowing too, that was kind of nice actually...After mowing I aired out the house room by room and dusted the hardwood floors and windows, and had a late lunch, cooked up a couple burgers for me and one for Kobi...Drinking a New Castle at the moment...

    Driving back home and my neighbor behind me was throwing this away so i snagged it. Wont take much to get it up good i think. I have a big piece of stainless i will use for the bottom where it rusted a bit. No biggie. I`ll like it better than the other one that was a propane, & aint no more. I hit it with some vinegar why it looks funky

    I've used that high temp black spray paint with decent success.

    I've also wanted a wire welder but have absolutely nothing to actually do with it at the moment - if I found that thing maybe I would finally have had my excuse ......

    I just came back from the supermarket. I was pleased to see large stacks of boxes in many isles, waiting to be unpacked.

    I just came from the store and it was pretty well stocked, but they were out of eggs.

    Today at the grocery store I witnessed a full out fist fight over toilet paper. as I called the police store management rushed in to break it up. soon the fight was getting way out of hand. thankfully the police showed up.
    And ppl wonder why I am stressed..

    OK so I'm up at 0400 because I have to go to work. Put the coffee on, fed the fuzzy kids and took the dog out back into the woods to do her business. Pitch black and I hear coyotes very near, very active and I thought 'I'm the apex predator you have to worry about' har har and I grabbed the old Poopy Shovel that has been leaning out against a tree for years. I can wield that thing like a Jedi if need be.

    She did what she was out there to do ......and then it happened.

    I stepped on some kind of goddamned bird. No idea what it was but quite suddenly and unexpectedly in the pitch dark there were great flapping and coo-coo bird noises right between my legs .

    This resulted in some really undignified behavior for all three of us. So much for apex predator - you got something flapping around your nuts like that then Joe Cool goes right out the window.

    Wiiiiiiiiide awake now.

    I'm sure the coyotes had a good laugh over that. A strange yipping laugh at that ..........

    Went blind in one eye today and not an orange in sight, especially after the onset. I've taken on citric acid from a source at some point, I know I was walking and eating during mid slumberm last night.

    Nothing beats zombie night fridge raiding.

    My lil gummy bear is got me really worried, Shit`s driving me nuts, not being able ta be with her in ICU. been there the last few times she was incubated. its really hard but i`m more at ease their helping than just being told she is stable and they will keep her like that for a few days before taking the tube out. I told them about the angiogram that was cancelled last week where they was going to put a stint in, but it was canceled due to this covid19, speakin of which, the sent her test off for that and should here in 5 days.The Er doc didnt sound to optimstic about the outcome, but told me when in the ambulance her top blood pressure number was over 200 and with a low 02 level so they sedated and incubated.she has a nebulizer and cpap here and she was on her 3rd albuteral vial and the 02#`s were 90 at best and would not come up this time, so we called 911, ever since they took her off bravada she has been back in all the time due to her copd. its not that they took her off, it the insurance wont pay for it, out of pocket its $1g a month when she was on it, she went for a year and half without a er visit, this is the 4th time back in since shes been off of it, might not ever come out i`m afraid , cant bear to think i wont ever see her again or talk to her. out of the 23 years together we`ve only been apart like 6 days.

    I pity the poor bastards who have to perform from their homes these days. While in the doctor’s office, Kelly and Ryan were on the tube. Seacrest looked happy and cool as can be. Ripa looked like a caged animal. Obviously, being at home all day is not sitting well with her. She had a scowl on her face for much of the time. I wonder how long she will be able to hold up through these difficult weeks and months. I could see her having a meltdown in short order.

    No little emoticon for this one. I'm not religious but will keep you and your wife in mind. I am so sorry you have to deal with this.

    Should be hearing back today or tomorrow about the results of her covid 19 test, i`m off work now till they find out she comes back neg, if she is positive than i have to be tested and cleared before i can go back to work. as with my wife, kellie`s asthma and copd, she has her good days when she dont use a nebulizer treatment and than theres days when shes using them every 30 minutes, sometimes that is not enough even after 3 vials of abuteral and we cant keep her blood ox#`s(02) nunbers up above 92 so we call 911 and out of the dozen times this has happened this is the third time she has had to be intubated.FYI we were not having any symptoms of the covid19,no fevers sore throats,but that still dont mean nothing, just waiting and praying that she comes back negatine on the test .a couple of weeks ago she had seen her heart doc and they were going to do an angiogram and maybe have to put in a stint thinking a blockage was the culprit of most of her problem,but it was never done two weeks later this happens they said today that was on a list of stuff they had planned for her, but 1st things 1st.

    Going to til the garden again today, this will be the third tilling, and wearing a cotton mask too, not because of any virus concerns in my backyard but because of the heavy pollen out today from the trees...I don't have any allergies to pollen but as dense as it is it would make anyone's nose run lol...Starting some seeds in starter pods today as well, planting time is coming soon...
