Things pretty much the same on this coast.  Jo and I got out last Wednesday to get stocked up on goods and will go again on Monday.  Some stores are giving senior citizens special hours to shop, but I don’t consider 0700-0900 very special.  Maybe I’m just spoiled.  Jo and I are not symptomatic and don't intend on getting tested.  Nature is going to take it’s course.  We are not fatalistic, just realistic.  I feel for those who have to work and/or have families to care for and support.  Their likely exposure to this virus is greater than us old folks  who can pick and choose when we go out.

I will try and find my record list of  "HILLBILLY REVELE" on the US Radio Network.

Thanks for checking in, Sig. All is well up north here too, for now.

They are opening up a testing site just down the road from me a couple miles at the Tacoma Dome. Supposed to be testing about 200 people par day for the next 5 days. Straight shot north from my house, no turns involved. Have to apply online to see if you are in one of the eligible groups to get tested. Showing symptoms and first responders, critical infrastructure employees, over 60 with health issues...

Not sure I want to sit in line for hours to get a long swab shoved up my nose into my brain or down my throat via my nose or whatever the hell they are doing. Can't they like scan me with a tri-corder or something or spray me with something that makes the virus glow in the dark?

Harold, listened to a lot of old style country while in Germany .
