I just don't let it control me to the point I never go out doors. Common sense goes a long ways to keep from getting it. Going into a store where others are, means I keep my distance where possible and I don't touch my face until I either wash my hands or use a hand disinfectant.

Mystical and I went grocery shopping today. We shop midweek instead of Saturdays now to avoid any craziness. The store we go to is moderate in size. The number of people there was small. Everything was fairly well stocked. We got mostly what we wanted. Signs on floor tell shoppers how far apart to stand at registers. They now have plexiglass windows up to protect checkers from too much contact. Sign at door tell people not to come in if they feel ill at all. Gloves and hand cleaner was there for the carts, but I was wearing gloves against the cold so just kept them on - -

After shopping, we drove around a little. Of course, almost everything is shut down including parks and other outside places. The huge indoor Mall where we usually walk in cold weather has been completely closed up - - It was all sad to see, and seeing flowers blowing in the neighborhoods didn't help much - -

There was a notice last night that two of the County Sheriff Deputies had tested positive. My youngest son is one, so I immediately messaged him. He said he doesn't work with those guys and had no contact with them. They got the bug from prisoners. What a mess!!

A son of mine went to pick up meat from a local grocer.
What he had been buying regularly doubled in price.

Also overheard a regular user of food stamps talking about how they are getting double food stamps.

Think there's a connection?

I'm surprised by nothing these days. Everybody screaming for lockdown. Goodbye "America"!




So here we are - and American Life as we knew it could be dead too. Can you imagine people going into Fast Food Places and Restaurants and sitting down near eachother again? What about buses? I would guess all cruise lines will be toast - let alone airline flights. Has the friendly, personal touch in stores and businesses literally vanished for ever? We had to have an appointment today to get in our bank! I can actually see countries going back to something like ancient Constantinople and Jerusalem with walled cities with guards at the gates that don't let anyone in without a thorough looking over of some kind. I hope it doesn't come to that. But this wave of paranoia will take a long time to move away from, and may get much deeper.
