    Yeah, I think I beat Hannie to this....

    What is everyone doing, staying at home? Work from home? Movies? Computer/Board games? Internet shopping/surfing? Home cleaning/repair? Yard work?

    Have ya'll been hitting the grocery stores? Gun stores?

    Here in my part of Texas, the weather has been horrible. Rain, wild swings in temps, etc. I'm going to start painting walls that need it. And if and when the weather cooperates, maybe some yard/gardening work.

    Depends on if I’m still employed by the time the checks come.

    if I am still working, probably put it in the market

    I'm retired so nothing much has changed except can't eat at restaurants, and had to cancel trips. I also have breakfast and coffee with some retired co-workers every so often and we've put a hold on that until the cafe's open back up.

    If I use my time wisely, I will be pretty good on Drums, Bass, Guitar and Keys. But, I will most likely watch baseball reruns on MLB TV. :rofl:

    Reading lots of books, catching up on paperwork, working in the garden. The garden is beginning to come alive, and so are the WEEDS, the devil's spawn.

    But, I need real WORK!!!

    Not a whole lot of difference in my day to day routine. I really gotta get going about cleaning out the basement and getting ready for spring when the ice goes off the lake and hopefully the golf course opens up.

    Watching idiots roam around spreading it. Which will ultimately keep it dragging on and the economy in the ****ter.

    Gun store closed Friday, so I can't go there.

    I've watched The Big Lebowski 3 times and Season 4 of The Simpsons. On to Season 5 now.

    Had planned on doing a lot of fishing. Rain and a cold front changed my mind.
    Lawn work, fishing, and a few other things have been cancelled. I made it to the range a couple of times, between rain or shooting from under an awning.
    I may pull the mower in the garage tomorrow and do some spring maintenance. It should be a little warmer.
    If this keeps up, I have some indoor projects i was saving for the heat of summer, but then what will I find to do?
