My Silly Putty

I found an item with an infinite number of exciting uses I can play with while being cooped up with my wife during this coronavirus pandemic. ..Silly Putty. I bought three giant one pound colorful eggs that my Silly Putty comes in. While my wife thinks it's foolish. (I think my lady doth protest too much). I think this is indispensable at this critical time . Silly Putty is a viscoelaste liquid as well as having properties of an elastic solid of primarily polydimethysiloxane and thixatrol ST which is a castor oil derivative. My wife should be impressed seeing what she's calling a toy is really a triumph in science. If Silly Putty was good enough for the Apollo 8 astronauts, it's good enough for us. I told her to swallow some Silly Putty next time she has a need for a laxative. I unpacked my red egg and already molded my Silly Putty into a bouncing ball. I can also stretch it and fold it and snap it and crack it. Oh.What fun. !!! I copied some images onto the Silly Putty from my collection of Archie and Green Hornet comic books. Superman and Batman looks so funny when you stretch them. . I also pressed my Silly Putty into some of the mail we got.....some bills and tax papers we were supposed to sign and mail back to our accountant. Unfortunately, the Silly Putty got stuck to some of the pages and I ended up tearing a lot of papers. When my wife saw what I did.......well, her reaction was unprintable so I'll let it go at that. I was sent ti my room where I'm coloring my TV with Winky Dink and my magic drawing screen.

We have 58 cases, 3 dead. I'm more than familiar with what's going on down there. It seems to be the big news for the entire state. My mother died at Elmhurst General 25 years ago. I wasn't impressed with the place then. Looks like that entire area was taken over by recent immigrants. Jackson Heights was changing when I lived in Middle Village and apparently it hasn't stopped. There was no such thing as a Chinese takeout in MV when I was a kid. But there were 3 in 1995.

Hi. We're in Eastern Queens in Little Neck. I know all the areas of Queens. Flushing is Frushing and that extends out East past the city line in many places. I used to stop at a bakery and deli often when I was on Myrtle Ave in Middle Village on my way to work IF i took that route to Williamsburg,Brooklyn. That was over 2 decades ago. Now I work basically in Eastern Queens and Long Island..locally mostly. Take care.

What would happen if you ever had too much time on your hands? I'll ponder the question when I manage to remove this knitting needle from... ah....where I stuck it.

Hi. Thanks for responding. So how is your life affected upstate from this coronavirus? Here in Queens, NY, the death rates and all of NYC continue at alarming numbers while experts say we are at a peak or plateau .Long Island seems to be ramping it up too in horrific numbers. Basically, the whole NY metro area seems to still be the epicenter. Stay safe. Stay well. Mark
