I am still planning to go to to Santa Fe in late May/early June. (Jenn, Rigel and danlo -- heads up! Big Grin ) Gonna take Amtrak there and back. I bought the tickets a year ago so I could have a roomette for the whole trip, because I am too old to sit up in coach for two nights straight, even without the virus complicating things. I've gotten a slew of emails from Amtrak - they're still running my route, but they recommend that you wear a mask in the stations and on the train (presumably I can leave it off while in the roomette). They're doing room service for meals. And I'm staying at the timeshare, so that should be fine.


LOL
You know, I was laughing so hard my eyes started poppin' - think Arnie in Total Recall

Great stuff!!!

Hey everyone.

Came back coz Cag mentioned on FB to me about his prognosis. Knew if there was some place I could find out more it would be here.

Cag, BIG love to you. I still remember back to those days of my roadtrip with Lucimay. Probably the most wonderful thing that's ever happened in my life (that and having Son of Seareach). You and Carla were fabulous hosts, and karaoke night was a blast. I've never forgotten your sense of humor. Often wish I could do it all again, come and meet your kids. So, you're in my heart, and I'm always here if you need someone to vent to.

As for the rest of you: the world's kinda gone a bit crazy, eh. I've thought of you all when I see the numbers for different countries. I hope you're staying safe!
Here in Oz we've been lucky. It looked like things were going to go pearshaped, but some how we've managed to contain this beast and our case numbers for the country have been under 20 for several weeks now. I feel blessed. Who knows what the future holds, but at the moment things look okay for us.

Take care. Much love, Sea xoxo

Seareach, you are a welcome sight!! I'm still in Nigeria, where we are just beginning to mount the curve, and locked down as much as Nigerians can be locked down (which isn't saying much).

It's hot just sitting at a desk typing. 90F, 24% humidity (just high enough to make you feel it). Google Classroom is my life right now. I miss the pipsqueaks.

So much to be grateful for, though. We have a home to live in, more food than we really need to be eating, a degree of internet, and though the power's been off since yesterday we are running a generator so the food in the Fridge doesn't spoil. I've lost only one friend to COVID-19, two others survived, lost one to cancer (Cancer, you suck!!! Cussing ), my kids are okay, and we're okay.

You all okay?

Folks, I love you all dearly. In special sincere, and a few of you in weird and naughty ways. I am so honored that more and more people keep dropping in for me. It blows me away and makes me feel so unworthy, but that's what kind of great folks you all are.

Sorry I have been out of the loop here lately. Seems I only get a little bit of time in between appointments and work, and it is "Facebook or Kevin's Watch?" But the appointments have been overwhelming lately in the home stretch.

I think I will create a separate thread now to catch everyone up on what I'm up to. I'm trying to decide on a title for the thread and I can't come up with a good one, so I think I'll go full Eeyore and call it Cag's Depressing Cancer Thread to keep everyone away. Razz

But I will try to keep with the humor where I can. I'm sure some days will be more upbeat than others, and I'll probably use this as a springboard to launch a blog that I'll steer others toward eventually, when I can find the time to do that. Anybody have any free blog site recommendations and advice?

Null, I hope Julie is finding some type of relief. Masturbation through the pain sometimes works for me, but isn't for everyone. And I hope you are handling things well too. My wife Carla is the caregiver right now, and is definitely having problems keeping it together. Cheers!

If you don't care about having a "site," look into medium.com, or the old stand-by, blogger.com which is a bit more traditional.

I went with Blogger, but am so far overwhelmed by design options and an attempt to pretty-fy the sucker. When really all I want to do is get the writing knocked out. I know it will be a one time thing, but it is things like this in games like The Sims that I hate dealing with. Give me the pre-arranged house, and show me how to knock down walls to expand later, but let me get to the fun part right away.

If all you want is basic-basic, Cag, for gods' sake, don't let anybody talk you into a Wordpress site. Eeek

I've used Blogger for years. It's fine. I also cross-post some things on Medium. Lots fewer settings there, plus a bigger innate readership.

Erm, me? Fine. Took the car in for an oil change on Thursday and the mechanic informed me that my inspection sticker had expired at the end of March. Which shows you how often I've driven the car over the past six or eight weeks... Anyhow, they inspected it for me and everything was fine.

Spent the early part of the week sorting through some of the stuff in the storage closet. I managed to reduce 10 file bins of documents to 4.5. Then as an encore, I sorted through three boxes of stuff I brought back from my mother's house when we did the final clean-out, and got it down to one tote plus a stack of crafting magazines. I feel quite accomplished. Big Grin

Watched a thing tonight -- Neil Gaiman interviewing N.K. Jemisin, live from their respective homes. It would have been held at Bard College in NY if this had been normal times, and I wouldn't have gotten to watch it then. So there's that. Laughing She's just been on tour (or "on tour", probably) for her latest book, from which she did a reading. Sounds like it's lots of fun.

Yeah, that's why I thought of Medium...no prettifying really needed.

Me, meh. I don't even have the energy to explain the mehness right now. Very Happy

Will see how I feel later. Very Happy Could go either way.

Cags I have a mate who uses Facey to blog his passage through his cancer. Some posts are long, some short, like you he brings his own brand of humour to his god awful journey. We end every exchange with FUCK CANCER 👊

Also dude ... you might need to get way more comfortable with peeps loven your lilly white ass 😉😂

In actuality it is never about worthiness. Even though we can be irrefutably judgey shits lol 😂 its just about YOU. ♥️

However, lets look at that WORTHINESS thing. The worth of a human is determined by its collective 😉, the community ... those you interact with and that IS what it is ... and it is clear we here love your weird 😉 😂

And you ARE worthy lol 😂 of every love and concern expressed.

♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Take care dude ... and fuck cancer 👊

Ah, very cool. I missed seeing her when she was here a few months ago - still regret that.

Still wondering if the guy on the train wearing a Boba Fett helmet was celebrating today, or if that's just his usual PPE.

Hey, I watched Lucas' THX 1138 today. I've had the DVD stashed away for months.
Maybe a subconscious thing or just lockdown coincidence, I guess.

My wife and I finally decided to run a 10K on a whim. We were out running, we both felt pretty good so we just kept it rolling. 59 minutes to get to 6.4 miles (10K). That was a month ago.

This week we did it again. This time our time was 56 mins and some change. Not bad at 57 years young. I would have to shave 10 minutes off that time to be competitive... not any time soon.

Wow 🤩 great work SB and wife 👌

RESPECT ✊

Ive been contemplating qualifying for alpine search and rescue .. to qualify you have to do the course but also run 5kms x-country carrying 20kg load

It is timed - cant recall the time but one thing is for sure Im a long way off the mark.

Ive been climbing, hiking through steep terrain for the past 5 months and leading .. but this is going definitely worthwhile doing but Im going to have to train hard and load bare
