Date night

Rachael’s fortunately doing fine after her brush with disaster.  She slept poorly last night because she couldn’t lie comfortably, but today she doesn’t have any signs of injury other than the scrapes she walked off with yesterday.  She took the day off her bike while her abrasions heal up and went for a 12 mile hike in the West Hills instead, leaving me feeling a bit silly when I barely biked twice that distance in my lazy jaunt down Front Street.

Definitely a reason to celebrate!  Like most folks, we’re mostly housebound now.  That didn’t stop us from enjoying a big night out though, but in the comfort of our apartment.  We splurged on a salmon dinner from one of our favorite local fish houses that’s reinventing itself as a take-out joint, and then tuned in for a live-stream house concert from the home of Tony Furtado and his wife Stephenie Schneiderman, two local singer/songwriters who’ve suddenly lost their primary source of income.  Support your local artists!


This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    Best thing to do for those scapes and bumps is exactly what Rocky is doing ;’-)

    It’s encouraging to see the number of artists doing performances that have a Paypal link so you can donate. I’m hoping some of my favs will do the same.

      Well, I read that as “I’m hoping some of my fans will do the same” and thought you must have been laid off! I hope you haven’t.

      I am getting reports of people I know who have been sidelined from their jobs both here and in the UK. No wonder the Centrelink queues are out of control.

        No, still have my job and still as busy and stressful as ever. My job is with government in an industry considered an essential service, so I should be sheltered from job loss, at least for a little bit. Who knows though – it changes every day. I could pretty easily survive 6-12 months without a job, though if I could hit the road and get rid of the rent and utilities expenses, I could stretch that easily to two years and still have some ‘repatriation to society’ money to get re-started. It helps that I live frugally and do not have kids, pets or any debt 🙂
