    Big day tomorrow, guys. Going to the dump. Not taking a dump. We're on toilet paper restrictions. Can't spare a square.
    If you literally are going to the dump, with trash, well....today I made a small run to Goodwill (kept my 6 ft distance, didn't touch the guy etc. Anyway, I asked him "Busy day?" and scraggly Goodwill dude said "Yeah, everybody's staying home and cleaning and bringing me all their shit!"

      I almost cried tears of joy. Truly beautiful people.

        I wonder if Goodwill and related thrift shops are considered essential businesses in states that are ordering non-essential businesses closed.

          I am coping with the C19 lock down with a bottle of good scotch.

            That sounds good. But do you have another bottle for tomorrow? :-)

              Ya double dipped the chip! Ya dipped the chip, took a bite and dipped the chip again! That's like putting your whole mouth in the dip!

                That was nice. Some jazz musician friends of mine have been posting videos if themselves playing alone but I'll share this with them and perhaps it will give them some ideas.

                  Just told my wife I'm putting off the dump until tomorrow. Gives me something to look forward to.

                    I could go for binge watching Bud Greenspan.

                          I went to see "The Crazy Gang" in London circa 1950's and they had Vera Lynn who threw out flowers, and I caught one and pressed it in a book.

                                My Iyengar Yoga instructor of the past several years did her first class on Zoom Friday and it was such a huge lift. 15-20 of us all practicing together, while apart. It was such a huge emotional and energy lift. Last winter when I was in Houston helping my mother with cancer treatment, I felt the same thing when she sent me audio recordings of the Wednesday night classes I was missing. Some bit of normality. Some bit of shared experience. Those recordings really helped me get through the hardest 6 weeks of my life.
