Not a joke. The governor of California today issued a statewide guideline instructing all persons 65 years old or older to self-isolate at home until further notice. That would include me (and my ace support crew).
Apparently this “guideline” will not be enforced by officers of the law, but elderlies such as myself are nevertheless expected to abide by it.
After some pondering, I reached the conclusion that I consider the saddle of the Ogre to be a part of my home, so I anticipate that I will be able to get out and about on two wheels without violating the rules. In order to avoid trouble, I also contemplate dyeing my beard back to its original rusty red. That ought to fool everyone, eh?
Please don’t mention any of this subterfuge to the authorities.
