Day 82 of the Winnie the Flu House Arrest

The Deuce and I did more work on the deck.

It is going to look nice.

Pictures soon.

Oh… I went to a bar again this afternoon. Things are starting to feel somewhat normal.

Day 81 of the Wu Flu Lockdown

There is a protest scheduled for today (it might be over by now) at the Northeast Dallas Police Station.

I’ve also done some work on the deck. Helped by the Deuce.

We are about 90% framed. Tomorrow we will level out the sections, attach them together and frame up the last 5ft or so. It will be kind of involved as the pool deck is very uneven.

Today I’m not even upset about the house arrest and business closures (read that as bars) as I’m gassed from the work. Sitting at home having nice beer. Craft, of course.

The 71st Day of the Wu Flu Mass Hysteria

Went over to the brother-in-law’s place for an afternoon by the pool and burgers. A nice day.

It is interesting to learn the differing opinions on the danger of the Kung Flu and the wisdom of the response

The Deuce, for example, is far more concerned about contracting the virus than I am. One of my sisters-in-law seems to believe the conventional wisdom on the danger of spread and that healthy people are to be quarantined.

Day 68 of the Wu Flu House Arrest

Government Announces Lockdown Of All Fast-Food Restaurants To Prevent Heart Disease

I also worked on the fermentorium.

Ft. Morgan to Dauphin Island ferry

The Deuce and I took the ferry on the way home from the beach.

It was a good move. I’m not sure that it saved us any time, but it sure made the drive home more pleasant.

Here’s a pic from the water:

Wu Flu Day 62 Post Two

Check this out:

The sign reads “Reduce Risk Wash Your Hands Before Driving.”

There were several of these signs on I-10 and I-12 in Louisiana yesterday as me and the Deuce drove home from the beach. What utter nonsense!

Day 61 of the Wu Flu Lockdown

Drove back from the beach.

Saw this while the Deuce was driving.

If I’m going to step out and make a prediction about future changes due to this current pandemic bullshit, here is mine: That post by the Lion couldn’t be more wrong.

And yes… I’m still a day behind. I’ll catch up and get on target later today.

I notice that Kling gave up yesterday. He’s been posting a lot. He’s apparently even more frustrated than I am.

Day 60 Wu Flu post a day late

I went fishing on the beach. I went for a hike along the lagoon. I also went to Big Beach Brewing.

That is why I’m posting a day late from the car

Took the Lockdown on the road for Day 59

I’m at the beach. The redneck riviera. So… Is the lockdown over? Not really. Lots of people still wearing masks. Restaurants in Alabama, if open, often don’t have seated service and are only allowed to be a 50% capacity.

Day 52 of the Wu Flu Lockdown

This one is going up a day late. I was tired yesterday after working out in the sun.

I managed to fix the leak in the pool:

I am now filling the pool. I have to reconnect the bonding wire and get the Deuce to refill the hole. While the water temperature is still pretty cool, the pool will be ready by the weekend.

The lockdown has been easing. The bars are not open yet. The Stars aren’t playing yet. This still sucks. And the ruin of the economy. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
