Creative Ideas for the Pandemic

I have been trying to teach Jose a new trick much to Ted's dismay. It involves shooting the finger which in his case means shooting his paw. He is a quick learner and I can't wait for him to try it on Tina, my visiting angel, she has a great sense of humor. Other pursuits involve ordering Christmas presents on line and a new coffee pot because the old one gave up the ghost. I find to be the easiest and most user friendly site that I have ever gone to. Some of the department stores have the nastiest sites and it is hard to ever get an order placed. Meanwhile I am using the old corning ware pot on the stove that we used during the power out. Needless to say it doesn't make good coffee. Every time that trump makes a new effort to disenfranchise thousands of people, I get a new knot in my stomach. I think he is the most corrupt and deplorable president that we have ever had and I wish he would just man up and admit defeat. we have a neighbor, a retired engineer, who has the most beautiful lawn and garden that I have seen in our neighborhood. Ted and I call it the botanical gardens and he has built gorgeous furniture out of exotic woods to add to it's beauty. Ted and he are friends and I am getting advice from him. He says it is time to trim bushes now and the twins will love doing it. I am waiting for the last of the leaves to fall so they can rake them up. I do not know what I would do without the twins, although I am encouraging them to go to the local junior college because it is free to Midwest City residents. They have a very successful landscaping business but they could use some business courses and some enrichment. They were home schooled so they could benefit from socialization with their peers also. Life is pretty dull but we are staying in most of the time, and I will probably start ordering groceries. Cooking is another avenue to explore. I have a loaf of homemade bread sitting on the counter. I hope it was a success. I might make candy since it is a sunny day. How are you coping?

The last of our leaves were down more than a month ago but since it had been warm up until two days ago I got everything outside done with a start on the spring. The RV (now mancave since it won't be leaving the property) looks so much better after a pressure wash and I'm way ahead on split wood. The only thing I didn't do Was the RV ac. I fixed that (replaced a part) two years ago but it's having the same problem again. I asked a young lady in Aldi's how they make their money by shopping for seniors and they basically add a dime (or more) to each item. Donna is scared shitless by the "rona" but I need to get out of the house and the car needs a good run, so we will continue to shop!

You and Donna are doing well. How often do you escape to the mancave?
Have you ever thought about renting a space close to a lake for the rv?

I’m binge watching things with Ron. Laziness prevails! Not good but factual.
Jose’s trick sounds so cute!
Life is quite boring at the moment....

Yes, boring is the name of this game. we go nowhere except to the dr and to the grocery store and we mask up for those gigs. We are watching a lot more tv. Have you ever watched Secrets of the Zoo. It is one of our favorites.
