COVID-19 Hunker-down Log. Stardate 43921.22

Combating boredom. I’ve been cycling through my collection of baseball caps on a nearly daily basis. There’s a pile of them on top of the camera cabinet. Some haven’t been used in over 10 years. I think I prefer the “Dad” hats, which are basically the style of caps that were popular in the 1990’s. It’s okay though. I’m a dad and I lived through the 90’s.

Good news inventory. California doctors are “cautiously hopeful.” Wow, that’s it.

Dog poop scooping. It’s become a way of life. Trudy and I get a little daily exercise with the encouragement of the dogs bowels. 10 minutes of walking in circles and staring at the ground. Day after day after day. Looking for the golden turd.

Weed inventory. 70 days.

Toilet paper/paper towel inventory. Still wiping everything we touch, and still touching everything we wipe. Riveting.

Camera battery. 85%. Did you know the camera battery will slowly drain down even if you don’t turn the camera on. Did take some photos yesterday, which used a little more battery than usual. Watching the battery drain is something akin to watching paint dry. Simple pleasures.

Laundry status. Did a load of clothes and a load of towels yesterday. Don’t want things accumulating in the laundry room and smelling like rot or anything.

Still no positive test result from the family member. The assumption at this point is she was fortunate and didn’t contract the virus, however, the poor health condition is still worrisome. None of us are getting younger and we don’t need no other medical stuff sneaking around and coming in through the back door.

I decided a week or two back that I would have my future medical prescriptions sent to me through the mail. It’s probably a better idea than driving 30 miles to stand in a room full of sick people to pick them up. We’ll see how that works out. I’m awaiting my first shipment. Maybe today, or tomorrow.

I’ve noticed that over the last week or so, the website has been loading erratically. Not sure if it’s a WordPress problem or a problem with the hosting service. Of course, getting an answer from the hosting service isn’t going to do me much good. As far as GoDaddy is concerned, everything is working fine. But it’s not. Could just be the Internet in general getting clogged up with millions of hunkered down people reading my blog. Naaaaa. There’s something else going on. When my hosting contract expires, I think I’ll find a new service.

First responder activity. Nothing to report.

The hunkering down continues, extra hunkering is in effect.

Still alive and well here in Denver.
