    I've actually been absent from the gym.
    I figured I was ready to get rolling, but I can't see gyms staying open right now.

    May have 3 kids doing online classes and a wife teaching one. May tell the wife to go into the school since she would be the only one in her room and I would struggle to find a fourth place. Have 3 figured out to put distance between them but not four.

    Neighborhood rumor is people who bought moms house is putting g up a fence. Probably chain link, please not chain link. I will throw the difference in for the white decking type fence.

    How long before CF servers go down from extra traffic because of WFH.

    Letting gyms stay open seems to me like a really really bad idea. This whole thing is unrolling like a "slow no". If you mean no and are going to say no just come out and say no. I get that some of the actions/reactions are slowed and tempered by lack of information but a lot of it is just political cowardice.

    No sports so not as much traffic.

    My grandparents' house, also the place where my family generally gathered for years and is basically the greatest place in the world, was sold this past year. I had a dream last summer that I was at the bottom of the hill, and the hedges in the front were being torn out...woke up really sad for whatever reason.

    Sure enough I was told this past winter that the people who bought it tore out the hedges...likely because they're renting it out and have to put up legal barriers.

    What do you mean by legal barriers?

    Ha, perhaps that sounds a little extreme. They're renting it out, not building a fort.

    The hedges surround(ed) a large cement porch without any sorts of railings and about a 3 foot drop off. I think to be legal to rent, a form or railing needs to be put up, which there wasn't one prior.

    Kind of like how the crib I used when I was a baby wouldn't be legal now, haha.

    I imagine CF is going to be real interesting for the next month or so with absolutely no sports. This is going to be the mother of all offseasons.

    People will be especially crabby with the virus situation also. Already setting in, another month of this and people will be threatening to breath on each other or something.

    Accomplishment for the day: Female co-worker came around earlier saying that she had something in the kitchen she thought people should try. It was barbecued beaver. Also, she had brought in some buns in case someone wanted to make a sandwich, and there were exactly two buns left.

    My accomplishment: Not only did I try the beaver, but I refrained from making one of the 165 outrageously inappropriate comments that I was dying to say.

    For anyone curious, it tasted very similarly to barbecued beef, but there was an aftertaste that wasn't preferable.

    I keep trying to inject some humor into those threads just to try and lighten the mood.

    Eventually I might start some bizarre poll, like which is your favorite toenail.

    Start a poll about ranch dressing. It will get all the hits.
