How is the COVID-19 coronavirus affecting you?


OFF TOPIC discussions

Just staying home with the better half. School is canceled for two weeks, so that means that we have three grand daughters at home with us. They have on line home work to do. But living out in the boonies, leaves little for them to do. Going to have to break out the board games and have some fun time with them. 

Just bought a bowed psaltry for my wife for her birthday. So we'll be teaching each other how to play it. So we have things to do. Making the best of a bad thing.

Remember Our Friend Oliver Ogden.


OFF TOPIC discussions

It was indeed a sad and unexpected message that I received from Sharon on Oliver's passing. He became a very good friend right off the bat. Talking of his many interests. Getting together at our gatherings was a highlight for him. You will be missed, my friend.

Lexie, thanks for accepting the request to do this for Oliver. You did very well.
