So all of this impending doom about the pandemic is really depressing... Yes it is real, and we all need to take the necessary precautions to avoid a repeat of what Italy is currently experiencing. I hope we are smart enough to see the reality and do what needs to be done. The best method for curtailing the spread is staying home and relaxing.

In an attempt to ride through this situation a little more gracefully, I have begun a concerted plan to draw my attention away from the current crisis and find useful things to do at home. Right now, I am finishing up a transfer case rebuild.

What are you all doing while staying at home?

Reading your post. And trying to convince me to stay home. I have never gotten the flu vaccine and I have never gotten the flu and I am almost 77. I am trying to convince myself to get it because of my COPD, mild as it is. I have a Dr. appointment Monday to have my stitches taken out, I plan to ask the Dr. if I should have the shot. They say it will lessen the symptoms. ohwell

Lots of TV time and Computer time. Waiting for the weather to get better so I can get outside and work on the projects. Did get out yesterday and mow the lawn during a brief break in the rain and storms.

I went out because I had a birthday gift to take to a friend but first I called her to ask if it was ok to stop by and she asked if I would on the way stop and picked up her medication at Walmart. My other friend heard I was going to be at Walmart so she asked me to get some hamburger for her and her mother. While 2 ladies were discussing what they should buy I sneaked in and got 2 of the 3 packages left. The store was not very busy and I drove by Meijers grocery and it did not have a lot of cars in the lot for a Sunday. When I stop by Auto Zone to my friend that works a guy had 1953 chevy 2 Dr. he was checking his tire pressure. we talked for a while, he was from Churubusco, Indiana about 70 miles. It was in excellent shape.The world is out of toilet paper. [youtube.com]

Rainy cold day here in mid Missouri. It then turned to snow with great big flakes!
Looked like little pieces of toilet paper falling from heaven.

Watching TV, reading the internet, walking 5-6 miles every other day on the timber roads behind the house, lifting weights on alternate days, reading, working on the V8 Miata as in finishing up the transmission swap, front subframe rebuild, putting the 302 engine peripherals back on and getting ready to lower the body back down on said subframe/engine/transmission. Get that sorta slapped back together, then pull the passenger door on the '51 and tweek the lower hinge inorder to pull the bottom of the door in about a 1/4". Then do a day's worth of PM work on the wife's '15 Ram 2500. Oh, need to get to work on bucking up a couple cords of firewood and splitting it for this coming winter.

Got more, but I'm pretty tired from typing the above and think I'll take a nap. Yes, really.

Working on stuff in the back garage, making room in the house so Theresa can work efficiently from home, and visiting the Stovebolt Page a little more than normal.

Housekeeping (Moderator) Making a Stovebolt Bed & Paint and Body Shop Forums
Made the mistake of reading the newspaper this morning. frown
Sitting on my butt. mostly (here on Stovebolt and another forum). Trying to get motivated to get out in the garage and work on the floor of my truck. Got a bend for one patch panel the other day at a friends shop, so can get that one put in. Need someone to kick me in the fanny to get out there. wink

This episode we find ourselves has not affected me much at all.
I tend to stay 10 feet away from people already even before this mayhem began.
I am virtually isolated from others while working.
I am getting a lot done on my '52 build.
One tough turn of events is that my wife's dental office got shut down indefinitely, so now I have to act right ALL day long.

Got a lot to do but will have to work on indoor projects as it would take a submarine for lawn work.
