Sheltering in Place

Salinas, CA

Well, what a crazy few weeks it has been!

As everyone is in the same boat,
and the new buzz word is Coronavirus,
George and I hope everyone is safe and healthy.

Where we live, in Monterey County, CA,
we've had reports of 4 confirmed cases of the virus.
Certainly not impressive numbers, but we
wonder how many are out there roaming around
that don't know they're contagious.
We're both glad that the governor has put forward
a 'shelter in place' order to keep
the masses from spreading the germs out there.

Our church stopped having services a few Sundays ago,
and since all of us are huggers,
we thought it was a good idea.
They are posting the services on Facebook which is cool.

The three (4!) of us are doing fine.
All of us are healthy.
We have plenty of food, supplies,
and things to read/watch/do.
The weather has been glorious,
so walks around the block have been numerous.

I've been cooking and baking,
and we're binge watching things on Netflix a lot.
Napping happens a lot!

Cooper got his grooming in before the state shut down,
but he gets annoyed if we don't give him treats
 when he wants one.

The restaurant that my son works for
has shut down, not even pickup/delivery :-(
He and Jen are laid off for now,
having some couple time.

Hopefully this will be all over soon,
and not go on for the months they're predicting.
All our 401k balances are tanking
and that scares me more than the virus!

Take care everyone,
our thoughts and prayers are with everyone!

Date night and more!

Salinas CA

Since our last post we've been busy!
Can't beat the CA sunshine.

Our church has a 'Senior Fling' once a month.
Though Mom and George didn't want to go, 
I decided it sounded like fun.
15 of us car pooled down to
Rocky Point restaurant in Big Sur. 
It was a perfect day for the views..

We even saw a few whale spouts out in the distance..

I really enjoyed being with these special ladies!

I had a great shrimp louie salad

The group meets once a month, sometimes going 
out to eat somewhere, sometimes just a game day.
I enjoy their company!

George and I decided on a date night too.
An ABBA tribute band called ABBA Mania
was playing in the local theater.
The group is actually from the UK,
but they use Swedish accents, wigs,
and costumes to make it very authentic. 

They really did a great job,
everyone was singing along!

As you can see we had great seats,
right up at the stage..

It was a great show!!
