    Default April Chit Chat

    It's spring now and we're still alive and kicking. I'm not sure about the kicking but we're trying to kick.

    If you're like me, you've been getting quite a few e-mails from places telling you all of the things they won't be doing until further notice. A person can keep busy just sifting through those e-mails.

    Hope we can stay well here!

    Default April Chit Chat

    Good Morning everyone! Let's not remind Howie that it is April Fools Day. We might find that he sends Sam to see us.

    I just hope all of you are doing well. I think we are all stressed over all that is going on in our country. Even as I type this I am concerned about some of our members. It is 11:45AM in the East and no one had started this thread. I just happened to come on my computer to do some banking and discovered this. This in itself is unusual.

    We have had beautiful days here and the trees are in bloom, but yesterday and today it is cold in the 40s and 50s.

    I have lots of food in my pantry and freezer. My brother and his wife came this morning and brought something else and went to my mailbox for me. They like to get out, if only to ride over here in the car. They do not come in. We hang things on the door knob. I hung 3 apples in a bag out and they left something for me.

    Hope all of you have as good a month as is possible right now. Wash your hands often and do the best you can to take care of yourselves.

    Agate, we were typing at the same time. How can I delete mine?

    Thank, you Virginia.

    We are fine here. Peter had his first Zoom meeting today. Easy and it worked well. I guess Zoom is the new Skype? My days are cats, books, YouTube, garden, walk, cooking and call to Mom. Life hasn’t changed that much for me. My hair? That’s a different story, isn’t it Virginia?

    Yes, Agate, it seems that any business with our email address is writing to tell us what they are doing to “mitigate” Co-VID 19.

    Oh please Ann let's not even talk about hair. Mine was due March 30th. So I am already 4 weeks into this hair thing and wondering what to do.

    I will look into Zoom. I don't do facetime because most people look kind of bad on it, but maybe zoom is more realistic or not?

    When Peter and I are separated, we use FaceTime all the time. Very easy.

    Sometimes he’ll FaceTime me from a store to show me something. It’s quicker that taking photos then texting them and waiting for a reply.

    Did you get anything good in the bag from your family?

    Virginia, I'll ask a moderator if my thread can be removed.

    Hair? Was hair mentioned?

    My problem is that much of my life depends on the goodwill and volunteering of others. People aren't in the mood to keep up those efforts just now. Including the woman who cuts my hair every couple of months. She wouldn't be allowed in the building anyway because haircutting isn't essential, nor is toenail care which she does for some people here. It could be argued that for seniors who can't see or reach their toenails and whose hands are too shaky or arthritic to hold the clippers safely, having someone else cut toenails is necessary but I don't make the rules.

    So I'm back to cutting my own hair. I'm glad I didn't get rid of the haircutting equipment. i can't really do it any more because my arms and hands give out but maybe I can trim the edges now and then.

    Virginia, the moderator has merged the two Chitchat threads. I didn't know that could be done.
