I would think golf courses ranges and other such activities should be available. I may sneak out and go fishing...

The redecorating continues.

But I don't mind this one at all:

This quilt was made by one of my wife's patients, and it was hanging in her clinic.
Best of all, no bird dog paintings were harmed in the hanging of this quilt.

Nice. I have quilt hangings of a similar style from my mom and granny.

This morning I received 3 back to back emails from Davidus Cigars saying that my order has been shipped. Raku, Lord Baltimore, and Portrait pipe tobacco's. I was all excited, I didn't remember order those. Then I realized they were old orders from a couple years ago, so I called to check. Seems there was a glitch. Bummer.

If you get some more Raku...well it just a very good tobacco...I hope they really do send you some!

Well, when I saw the price per tin on the notices, $10 each, I pretty much knew it was bogus.
All of my Portrait and Lord Baltimore are long gone. I still have a tin of Raku, I'm sure. Btw, I wrote a song about Lord Baltimore a few years ago, and used to sing it when driving alone in my truck.

One of my son-in-laws is a supervisor in a factory that makes seats for lawn mowers and tractors. They're listed as an essential part of the agricultural industry so they are running. The SIL got a text from a deadbeat worker that he has Covid 19 and that he visited the doctor but the doctor did nothing but tell him to stay home. He's sure the guy is lying, but you must take these things seriously now. Like kids calling in bomb threats to their school. He has to tell the other line workers even though he's sure the guy is faking it. Crazy times.

If I suspect a student is faking it, I ask for a note from the doctor.
Given the potential seriousness of the ramifications, it might not be inappropriate for your son to ask for something like that.

But then, there are all of the medical privacy laws.
