Chinavirusmeltdownshitshow® Update

For my readers out there, let me know how it’s going. I haven’t heard from my regulars in a while and I’m starting to worry. If you prefer not to comment here you can send me an email through my contact page.

As for me, I am still working, and in fact working harder. My job is one of the “essential” to the country right now. Business is about the same but I’m doing more work because we have fewer people. Currently about 20% of my coworkers aren’t coming in. None of them are sick, but a few do have preexisting health conditions so I guess they don’t want to take any chances. I certainly don’t blame them. One of my coworkers is perfectly healthy; he just refuses to come to work. Evidently management can’t do anything, or won’t. I suspect over the next few weeks our workforce will continue to drop, until we can’t get the job done anymore. Then I don’t know what the company will do. I’m not sure they do either. IF management has a plan they’re not sharing it with us lowly workers.

I went 18 days between grocery store visits. A lot of the stock had been replenished but the idiocy continues, this time as much from the store as the customers. I’m not wanting for much so I won’t be visiting them again until it’s an absolute necessity.

At home I have several projects I’ve been putting off and hopefully I can get started on them now. I’m also writing and reading more. I’ll probably be blogging more too, until things return to “normal,” if that’s even possible.

American History in Photos

They liken its mushrooming popularity to the hula hoop craze of the last decade. 1965”

Not gone shooting

Yesterday I was going to go shooting again, but because of the ongoing Chinavirusmeltdownshitshow® I couldn’t. In my state gun shops and shooting ranges are designated “essential” businesses and are allowed to stay open. The range closest to me, though, has now restricted shooting to people that were already annual members in good standing. I never bought an annual membership since I never went there enough to make it cost-effective. I would have to go at least once a month to make it worthwhile. So here I am, now, locked out like every other halfwit who only decided they needed a gun in the last few weeks. Who’s the dummy now?
