I'm good, thanks for asking. Busy week at "work from home" and I'm glad to take a break over the weekend. Weather is improving, thank Ullr. Reconnected with some long-lost friends, and had a nice chat with Harv himself, so that was a bonus.
Quote of the week:
"These days, finding answers is like reading tea leaves while skydiving."
Doing OK. Suppose to golf Saturday, all walkers with 2 over 75. Been watching on and off the ACC channel that has NY's team "the Cuse" win every game on re-runs be it hoops vs. Dukies and Tar heels, football vs Clemson, lax vs Duke, soccer, women's hoops and some others I missed. Walked the younger hound out back. First day without any snow in a while. Actually pretty decent day all things considered. When I watched a minimal amount of news the big "news" on some stations was some incomprehensible outrage of discussion of shooting up disinfectants. Whatever happened to the eating Tide pods thingy? I must be missing something.
Doing ok. Blessed, really. Heathy. Family healthy. A little tired of this working from home, even though I can work from home, albeit with a relatively minor pay cut. Luckier than most, despite dealing with my sorta kinda mild dementia riddled mother-in-law stuck in a nursing home but safe in this CV-19 world and out of our hair, albeit harassing my wife on the phone tonight, while I play ping pong on a new table in the recently cleaned out garage with my kids, them FINALLY beating me because I’ve had one too many Kentucky mules.
In the midst of all that I’m first world white problem depressed because, were it not for CV-19, right now I’d be checking in to a Snowbird hotel for a great weekend of Utah spring skiing, even though tomorrow would have been too fast and too firm.
Yeah, that about sums it up. As I’m prone to say....I could complain, but I won’t.....and I honestly don’t have much to complain about. Praying for all those who do.
I’m right there with you JTG. Shit continues to hit the fan in slow motion but I am pretty ok myself. My wife was looking into an outdoor ping pong table the other day. I might give that the ok tomorrow. It sounds fun now.
Also: Ginger beer goes with everything
While we have it in the garage, we got the Butterfly Garden Rollaway 5000 outdoor table. Ordered Sunday, delivered today. The 7000 may have a thicker table, but I can’t imagine it’s worth the extra couple bills. Easy to assemble, not 15 minutes, but not hours either, pretty nice. I picked up a couple Saranac ginger beers at Adams tonight, although I may head to the beer distributor tomorrow for a case of Goslings.
12 or 15? No, Islay ain’t my thang. Honestly, I enjoy the Saranac just as much, but I don’t have a place to buy it by the case, which is a cheaper way to go. So Goslings it is. And would it be a proper dark and stormy if it weren’t Goslings, when I’m in a rum mood?
