OF COURSE we are self-quarantining. We were before all the lock-downs and such. At our ages and after being put on immunosuppressants after the transplant it only makes sense. But other socializing and patronizing friends’ restuarants, it makes little difference.
So, as the Secretary of the Treasury say, The Fed can buy as much as it wants from the banks, why doesn’t the fed buy up all of the outstanding student loans and mortgages and then forgive them? Bail out the people for a change.
Saturday quarantine. After working at home for two decades, the new thing about self-quarantine is grocery deliveries.
Yesterday morning. The sun rises and horses need exercise come what may.
Back from a whirlwind trip to NY. A continuation of the Fern Birthday Party and some business in The City for her. She went into town and I got the snow picture out walking Lucca the French Bulldog puppy.
The wreath on the gate beach-ward was up when we got home and the Meyer Lemons look harvestable.
The office Monday after the wedding in Turks and Caicos.
Seat assignment and place-holders for Dave and Stephanie’s wedding.
Off to Grand Turk at the crack of dawn Nov. 9. Big beachside wedding. Big network of friends coming. Blast ensues. Pictures follow.
Perfect sunrise pictures are a new challenge in my life 😉. Starting a collection of Joseph Campbell’s works; autobiographical and his writing 📖. Kinda tied together.
Coming back from my beach walk yesterday. Our Ibis was visiting the neighbor across the street from our house on Ibis Court.
Gray day here. 6.3km on the beach yesterday. Picked up two typewriters at McDavid Typewriter this morning. One is great, the other I have to mess with myself, I guess. Fortunately Bill’s a great guy and he fixed the one problem I asked him to. What’s left is easy.
Out to the morning walk. I saw many photographers on the beach waiting for sunrise. I hope they were happy. I have better pictures posted here than I could have done this morning.
Idling at The Decantery. Taylor, Kyle and Tiffany were mixing syrups and drinks and giving me things to try. Made the time pass faster.
EAA Chapter meeting last night. Ten or fifteen of us planning the next Young Eagles flights (free flights for kids) and our scholarship program for high-school pilot training students. (They do that down here.)
Last week’s reading (the dark) and this(the bright). A thousand pages. Of history, much of which I lived through. Fun. More like skimming than reading in depth. 📖
Football and Pickleball
So, Jacksonville beat an even more hapless team.
No baseball on the big screen.
And the night ended on a promise to come watch
and maybe learn pickleball.
Sunday, Mexican food, the usual gang.
Volunteering to help an airplane owners convention this week. Tuesday maybe. Public welcome day. Pixtures to come.
3rd try worked. Love the other two, one for dress and the other for “functions”. Better night time visibility is important too. 😉👍
The hawk on the fence just dropped down and grabbed something in the garden out if the image on the right. I went out later but there was no trace. He sat there a while, a reminder of where we live.
Another sunrise over the gulf stream clouds. Later a tortoise was waddling down at low tide. Long walk.
Sunrise. Up early enough to get down in time to watch the sun clear the clouds.
Three lonely wine bottles and no room in the hutch. 😢
GnuCOBOL source level debugger working again. Silly tooling misunderstanding. Nice being able to debug stepping and printing variable content in COBOL too. (#cobol #gnucobol)
