My mom texted me today to suggest that we cancel her planned trip to Houston in April. I admit I was thinking the same thing but she said it first. I would worry for her health if she were traveling. I’ll work with the airline tomorrow to reschedule the trip. I told Abby and she was sad. I used the word cancel and Abby asked if we could reschedule. My mom said she was so excited to come and I know Abby and Ella were too. All in all a sad day. The world is still panicking due to coronavirus; school is canceled for a month. Restaurants, bars and gyms are being shuttered. God speed to this planet so that we can find some resistance to coronavirus soon.
Coronavirus & the Global Time-Out
The Coronavirus is currently gripping the world with fear; flights are restricted, all sports shutdown and schools are closed. It almost seems like the world is on one big time-out. Today I went for a bike ride with Ella and I saw loads of people out enjoying the beautiful day. My work has authorized global split teams (team blue and team green) to limit the effects of a spread of infection on a team. I worked from home a bit last week & it was fine. I do miss the room and the camaraderie of the staff. While I’m at home I have the girls; Ella has been really good and is getting herself cereal and such. Abby for her part is staying in her room and coming out for food, ha. The weather was very nice today; I did all my yardwork yesterday and today — mow, edge, weed, sweep up. I also cleaned up in the house and did the dishes and laundry. At least in my neighborhood folks are enjoying this time with family and loved ones. Fathers and Flashlights has officially been cancelled (the camping trip) and we got no refund! I sorted knew it would get cancelled and I started prepping Ella for that fact. Todd (Paiges dad) invited us to go with him to do our own fathers and flashlights. In many ways I think this one will be better! Anyways, god speed to the world and hoping this all blows over some time soon.

Look at that tall guy next to Jake. Lol. Great article and Jake is a great guy.
Pronounced peeps (or so I’ve been told). So I found out the other day that he was only 34 years old with a nice estate and a good job and wealth. He wrote every day and the filthy stuff was in other languages (French, Spanish, some Latin). He also wrote in code shorthand for his diary. One wonders who he was writing it for? One wonders if our ramblings online will be reviewed in the way that Pepys diaries are. Who knows? He was a cad; that is for sure.
Cameron just got home, what a night. Heavy rain for several hours led to this. Still raining now but water had receded. Cameron is telling me about his day. The story starts with “Cops coming in saying “shits fucked here, shits fucked there…”
