    Also, I keep telling her, I mean “it” that we can take a drive any time as long as we stay 6 feet from any other people. That’s important.

    I’m mostly retired. So being home is largely status quo for me. Mild changes to my daily life. The mostly non-retired part of my life has cost us revenue from canceled training sessions.

    I’m a cyclist. Now I ride solo or in very small groups versus larger groups. I’m a home guitar player. No change except my usually at work neighbors are subject to my mediocrity. My gym closed, but I have an extensive home gym in the basement. So now I workout at home. My social activity, hanging out at the cigar shop/club, is out. Now I enjoy cigars on the back patio and socialize on line.

    Lastly, we’re in the middle of a home renovation. We’re getting a lot done since my wife’s normal schedule has her home. So far the most immediate downside is that I ordered a bicycle from Italy before all hell broke loose. Delivery of the new bike is on indefinite hold. Plus, we are in a holding pattern on 2 cycling vacations that were booked and paid for.

    Maybe they’ll run the Group of Death documentary I did with them again?

    I wonder if I’ll get royalties?

    Wife and I are both teleworking full time. So yesterday I put a "Do Not Disturb" sign on my guitar room. She asked me what I was doing. I replied "Spousal Distancing!"

    My wife and I are in "That" demographic so we have decided to self-quarantine. Just staying home; going nowhere except for groceries, and just, well, going nowhere.

    Nowhere! Just us two. For weeks!:mad:

    Should the authorities find one of us dead it was not the virus!!!:eek::rolleyes:

    Ive been since Tuesday , I’m a bar manager for restaurant and the state closed down dining services at the restaurant . So here I sit . So far Inwent through the different gauges of strings on 3 different guitars -custom 22 , 513 and a Steve Morse standard. I went from 10s to 9. 5 to 8.5 to 8 . Comes to find out for me I really enjoyed the 8s on the prs and the 9.5 on the Morse . The 8s on the prs was just kore fun to play and the time difference from 10 to 8 really was that much different to me. I’ve also been playing with all the different picks I have collected over the years . I usually use the ultex .88 rounded triangle but also enjoyed the 3mm v pick I have. So I went through a bunch of thicknesses and shapes . Now I’m gonna spend some time with the helix and get that set up better for live use , when we finally go back to being able to go out.

    everyone stay safe out there !!!!!!

    For some reason, this song keeps popping into my head. Thomas Dolby is a genius!

    You must be near me in Wasington, DC. The local GC is still open with reduced hours. The last thing I wanna do is touch an unknown guitar. They can’t possibly wipe down every guitar every time............
