What to do. I’ve just finished my second cup of coffee. Done two crossword puzzles, finished a jigsaw puzzle with 256 pieces, read three newspapers (LA Times, Boston Globe, and Torrance Daily Breeze) Saving The NY Times for later. As it is, I’ve dropped a few other subscriptions from my daily list.

My email is filling up with more and more alerts from the governor, mayor and other assorted officials about COVID-19. Blah, blah, blah.

We’re going to go grocery shopping tomorrow. In the past we would shop every 3 or 4 days. This time it will have been 6 days. I heard one official say shop for two weeks. I doubt that the person has ever shopped for two weeks. We’ve finished up most of our meals in the freezer.

We don’t have enough shelf space in our cupboard or space in our freezer/fridge to put all that stuff. Besides milk and half/half don’t last that long.

Paula has been diving into pictures that we brought with us when we moved to LA in 2012. Found some interesting pictures. She found a few pictures from out wedding in 1978. Wow.

Eventually, after this is over with we hope to show the photo albums to Jonathan and Sarah about what life was like back in the day.

We’re feeling blessed/lucky. We had some friends from Mass. come visit us just before pandemic hit. Thus, we were able to go to all of the touristy places that are now shuttered. If they had come in mid March, it would have been very ugly.

We also have excellent high speed internet service and laptop, iPad’s and iPhones. When Paula needs technical support, she comes to me. The questions is usually, “How do I do …. ?” We have been Zooming and FaceTiming with our friends and relations.
