“stay-at-home” order...





Hated to leave the Gorge but the hovels are being resided. I need to be here for that as I have the only extra keys to the Doc's place next door, as well, my place.

When I got back I seal-a-mealed the walleye fillets and distributed them to neighbors in the hood.


Back to caulking and inside painting, and normal chores.

Yesterday, the sun was shining, so I planted a bunch of pansies 




 and spray painted my patio furniture. 






 Went back inside for a cup of coffee, heard a loud racket outside, looked out and dang.


It was hailing like a son of a gun.  Patio furniture paint and pansies seem to be OK, will see.

The Governor has mandated a “stay-at-home” order as of today!  

Luckily, I had recently purchased new batteries for my 6' ft distancing pole





which were added to the other survival items needed for staying-at-home.

  1. Survival items. I recommend the 5 liter box wine. Not as likely to be broken in an earthquake.

  2. WSF has a point about the box wine. Be sure and grab the Rossi if the earth starts to shake.

    1. It's close enough that it shouldn't be a problem and the price point is a bit better.

  3. I am glad you got the batteries for the 6 foot distancing stick. That is really funny. I could use that when I go to Walmart. We are suppose to have some sunshine here tomorrow. It has been raining here. We need it so I am so happy! Stay healthy!

    1. Figured that you would have a distancing stick. I heard from the RB crew that they got some much needed rain.

    1. Box wine seems to be the way to go. Love their coffee,if you have an NRA membership and join the coffee club the price is not bad. I economize on other things.

  5. Distancing pole. Stun gun?
    I could shelter in place there.
    My mom said it snowed in Michigan the other day. I said we had rain. And 90 degrees later this week. Too early! But the new norm, I fear.
    She said that will be better than snow. I'm thinking, no. Haha!
    I don't like the heat because it usually comes with humidity.
    But I do like Louisiana otherwise.

    Be safe and God bless, Brig. :)

    1. Louisiana is a beautiful place. I don't do well in the heat with all the humidity.
      Lots of snow all around us, winter isn't done with us yet.

  10. You've got to have your coffee in the early morning, then the wine starts after 10:00, or is that too late?

      There are more rolls of TP stashed, I'm nothing special.
      I like to be prepared.

  12. The internet says that the phrase, "Quantity has a quality all its own" is wrongly attributed to Stalin.
    In any case the phrase describes box wine perfectly.
    I wonder if my electric flyswatter would be a good candidate for a PSET conversion. (Personal Space Enforcement Tool)
    I haven't tried the Black Rifle coffee, I have watch almost all their videos.
    Good post!

    1. Box wine seems to the choice of many, and now I know who has it...
      Thinking those bug assault guns might work, too.
      Black Rifle not only has good coffee, but funny videos that appeal to my twisted mind.
      Thanks
