Personal Notes


1. The Mad Scramble

I shot the video with an iPhone and the 8 mm app. The editing was done using the Splice app. Nova Rain added the voiceover.

2. All this ice-0-lation, self reflection and meditation is bearing fruit. I flipped out some in the last few days. Melancholy! Confusion! At loose ends. Adrift. Then boom. With the help of a friend I peeled off a huge, tough, nasty layer from my onion. “The unbearable lightness of being”. Growth is difficult. But I am better now. Closer to nobody.

3. I’ve been trying to get my oil and filters changed since January 2020. I’ve been turned away once. SpeedCo didn’t have the oil filter. That is just not true. There was some other reason. Beats me. I may have found a good local place. Maybe during July WHQ will be well lubricated once again.

Thanks 😊 so much for coming by and interacting. You brighten my day and bring joy to my heart. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. I love you.

Personal Notes


My Memorial Day Weekend

May 23
A 4 mile walk
Worked on my art projects
Drummed and practiced ukulele
Meditation for a few hours
Made veggie food
Hung out with my friend
Thought different thoughts as much as possible.

May 24 began with a 2 mile hike. At a distance I had a conversation with a fellow hiker. There was a lot of yelling. hahahaha She was walking a beautiful white dog.
After I returned to WHQ, I enjoyed a cup of iced coffee and a mandarin for breakfast, some journaling, and a life threatening trip to the Beeswax convenience store and grill. No masked shoppers other than me. Most people abided by the social distancing guidelines. The floor of the entire store was marked off in 6’ intervals. Sad as it is, I risked my life for a beer run.

May 25
Memorial Day
I started the day with coffee and a banana at 5 am.
Next was a 3 mile hike down by the lake.
The sunrise was lovely this morning.

Lay Lake

I encountered this turtle. I apologized for interrupting it’s journey. I like to believe that crossing paths with a turtle is a positive omen bringing happiness.


As I continued I came upon a Killdeer nest. I am amazed at them. It surprises me that the eggs survive.

Lunch was a far cry from the standard Memorial Day BBQ with family and friends. Cabbage soup and a beer for me today. I do miss my mom’s pound cake on occasions like this.
Feeling kind of alone on this holiday. It’s because I pick it.

The dream: I dreamed I was driving and I knew something wasn’t quite right. The passenger pointed it out too. Seems the car had started slowing rising into the air. We drifted near the wall of a Walmart store and used the bricks to pull the car back down. Then we got out. Oddly adults didn’t float but the one child in the car began to drift away.

Curbside Pickup


I’m trying curbside pickup at the local grocery store. I called yesterday to get the scoop on how small town USA curbside pickup works. I’m calling in my order, they will do the best they can, and they will call me back with the total.

The list:

  • Green bell pepper X
  • Cucumber X
  • Bag o carrots X
  • 4 Roma tomatoes X
  • 4 green bananas X
  • Bag of yellow onions X
  • Celery hearts X
  • Bag o apples X
  • 5lbs potatoes X
  • Big jar dill pickles X
  • Jif Crunchy peanut butter C
  • Canned pineapple X
  • Canned pears X
  • Raisins
  • 3 small cans tuna in water X
  • onion soup mix X
  • Bouillon cubes X
  • Bay leaves X
  • Small bags of flour and cornmeal
  • Cooking oil 32oz
  • TP X (I was surprised it was available)
  • SOLO style cups
  • Bug spray
  • Liquid dish detergent X
  • Graham crackers or saltines. X
  • 2 Diet Coke X
  • 2 diet DP X
  • Sharp cheddar X
  • Hoop cheese X
  • 1/2 gallon low-fat milk X
  • Almond milk X
  • Men’s multi vitamins
  • Guinness stout

The items with an “X” are the items that were available. The employees did a great job. It was as safe as possibly. The grand total for this adventure was $88 and change and should feed me for 2 or 3 weeks. When I got home I wiped down some things with a Lysol wipe, others got a soapy bath, and a few others were put in isolation for a week.

All loaded up

Shopping Is High Adventure


I went out in the world today to take care of some things. One of those was a stop at a grocery store. I listened while a customer explained all about rationing to the store manager. The entire time the store manager kept explaining there was no shortage and that store is fully stocked every morning. The obese, rationing spouting, customer had a buggy filled with meat. There was plenty of meat to purchase still on display. I got my little bit of stuff and went to get gas.

The price was right for me at $1.65 a gallon. The tank was below ¼. I walked inside to prepay and the waiting customers all adjusted so the 6’ distance was maintained while we awaited the clerk. While I was pumping, a younger man passed nearby and sneezed. He immediately started apologizing and explains about his allergies. It is full blown pollen season spring here. I felt sorry for him an wonder what had happened earlier to make him so sensitive. He sneezed. I didn’t even look up until he started apologizing.

Let me wrap this all up. I went outside and touched things others had touched. I spoke with people. I breathed air. I sanitized a lot. I washed my hands often. I tried to remain 6’ away. In 14 days I could be fighting for my life. Or not. What an adventure.

Be chill. Be safe. Don’t Panic! Wear your mask.

Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate all of you.
