SOCIAL DISTANCING

Let’s get some “Social Distancing” then

Social distancing or extended cabin fever, whatever we want to call it is getting tough so I’m hoping that just maybe I can do some anti social distancing by putting a few miles on the bike in the very near future.

With schools closed until 17th April I should be able to force myself back into the thermals and take on the challenge again. Weight is down to around 180 lbs and if its not too windy 10-12 miles a day will be a good start for week one.

Lady, you must have a serious problem! …… you need the NEW Supercart!!

Now this I can believe

Crazy shopping everywhere and TP seems to everyone’s No1 choice for hoarding although difficult to understand why people think this will be the first commodity shortfall???  Personally, as I no longer use the product you can have my share!      Of course with all the viral illness around, and the TP shortage, I’ll leave the “reversal op” until some sort of normality returns.

So how  is the “Chosen One” dealing with the problem so far?

Well no matter I’m sure we will think of something, but MEANWHILE it helps to explain all this………

Just as I was about to set off on the bike …. it started raining! Well, never mind I’ve pumped up the tires and I’m ready to roll when the weather decides to play ball. An overnight dusting of snow but that has now melted, temperature creeping up and not much wind.

Finally the door opens, the odometer is reset, and the pedals crank round once again! Bloody cold it has to be said but 12.26 goes into the book to open the 2020 account.

Monday, and strangely NO morning nonsense from the White House, whatever is going on? ….. perhaps its because he doesn’t like journalists asking questions. Anyhooooo we start another portion of our personal lockdown. Truly appalling to see  the civil disobedience from both the US and the UK with people behaving as though nothing was happening, crowded beaches in CA, biker outings, city parks with crowds picnicing, and in the UK cars chock a’ block in Snowdonia and also in Scotland …….. they must all be suffering from something else and have a death wish, or perhaps they are brain dead already.

Looking for the answer

Cold and windy Monday and not good for cycling with yet more rain and snow in the forecast. Eventually got the thermals on but, yes, you guessed it …… it started raining changing over to snow. NO RIDING, and more rain overnight so pretty wet out there right now. However the forecast says 50F and sunny.

Tuesday, again no White House briefing, but I see the lemon wants to remove restrictions by Easter ?????? We  will see what the medics think and then of course they will be fired!

You Sir, have my sympathy

We live in hope that common sense will prevail

Meanwhile, in sleepy little Dolores the solo cyclist ventured out on the deserted roads and popped another 18.25 into the books

God help us all!

TONY DOWN
