I have to drop off a car payment today.  We'll be separated by glass and a steel box.  That's about as "social distanced" as you can get.  I've used less than half a tank of gasoline since this whole thing started.  That alone says quite a bit.  John

Some of the stores seem more empty than others. I went to Walmart yesterday to get an RX for a neighbor and I was a bit "freaked" about going in as the parking lot was PACKED. I dawned a mask and gloves and went right to the counter, got the meds and left. I then went to a grocery store for the same neighbor to pick up some needed foods and it was less crowded, but still had more people than I thought it should. Today I need to get some food for us at home and will stop at a grocery store at lunch and CostCo after work, oh and I need gas as well. I'll use the mask, gloves and be rapid.

David, thanks for that video!  Loved it as I'm a huge BeeGee's fan!  I can just feel John cringing right now.  LOL!

Went out to pick up a prescription and get a few groceries as long as I was at Jewel.  It was pretty empty of people but couldn't wait to get home.  Just the thought of going there was freaking me out.  Even said a prayer before taking off.  Peggy

Now that was funny.  I do know some musician friends who tried to do some things online.  (If you noticed, none of those guys were actually playing their instruments.)  The online deal doesn't do it for me though.  I need that crowd reaction.  I still play, of course.  Not to entertain myself but to keep learning new stuff.  Every other day I use the treadmill and every other day I try to work out new "riffs".  If things ever get straightened out, I shouldn't be too rusty.

I probably overstated the cat food problem.  I mean, even if there's no cat food around, I'll make sure she doesn't go hungry.  She just doesn't seem to care much for people food.  She usually gets "Meow Mix" but I think she might eat other stuff, if there's anything else to be found.  Peggy, I never even thought about ordering cat food online.  I have ordered a few things online but I tend to still think along "brick and mortar" lines.  If I need something, I go get it.

As I mentioned before, I'm something of a semi-recluse anyway.  I expose myself to big crowds 2 or 3 days a week, then scurry back home to be by myself.  I've often wondered, if I were suddenly wealthy, would I stop playing?  Then I realize that as much as I want to get away from those crowds, in a month or so, I'd go crazy.  I'd miss the yells, the applause, the people crowding around with cell-phones and the "we're now worthy" waves, and especially the amazing things people say afterward.  Vain as it seems, it's really my "raison d'etre".  Without that interaction, I'd just be sitting around vegetating.  No matter what else happens though, as long as I have books and a computer, I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to be bored.  John

 I can't say the same for the cat.  There's no cat food anywhere and I'm going to have to think of something else in a week or 2.


What brand/type of food?
