Our CoronaVida World – On and On

This whole Covid-19 thing just keeps going on and on and getting worse and worse. For those of us in the USA. Many other places in the world have their act together and if you live in one of those countries I salute you and your leadership!! It’s a dumpster fire here.

July 2020

I cope as best I can.

So does our collection of three dogs and two cats. Talk about lazy.

I’ve been reading this book by our President’s niece. It explains a lot of the dumpster fire situation we have going on now. The niece has an axe to grind and she grinds it a lot which detracts from the credibility, in my opinion anyway.

And I’m branching out. Tried to make avocado bagel with tomato. Worked out well if I do say so myself.

And trying out new brews. According to Untappd, the beer app, I’ve tried brews from seventy different breweries the past couple years.

And I’m exercising a lot as well. I am running, bicycling, doing resistance machines, and I do a couple of my wife’s aquatics classes a week. Retirement has turned me into a gym rat.

And I’m stopping to take random photos. I’ve driven past this vintage moving van for a couple years. I finally stopped and checked it out. I love it. The front looks like a face.

We are feeding birds which means we are feeding squirrels as well. I was going to feed them corn but I am too cheap to pay $12.99 for the feeder above. I think I can build one myself. It’ll look like crap but the squirrels won’t care.

Sunday I went to Owasso to go find some geocaching. I come across this sculpture in a city park.

I also come across this old, old grave marker in a cemetery. I can just barely read the dates. It looks like it had a plaque that is now gone.

I found this cache. A little tube tied to the tree with the smallest hardest to see string I have ever seen. I kind of knew the cache was down there but didn’t really want to stick my hand down there to confirm.

I found another cache by a pond kind of hidden. I find geocaching fun. Check the link if you want to know more. It’s a high tech hiding game where you use a GPS receiver or an app on your cell phone to find caches. There are two types of people in this world. Those who “get” geocaching right away and those who don’t see the point. Both groups are “very fine people” as our President would say!

So that’s it, I’m linking with Our World Tuesday

    I am on a wait list for that book, I have heard so much about it on the news lately. I wish Covid would magically disappear, it would take a miracle. Our leader is not helping at all. I like that sculpture of the kiddies in the park. I would not stick my hand inside that tree, I am something would bite me. LOL.
    Your furbabies look cute all lined up napping. Take care! Enjoy your day and have a great new week!

    I’ve read about that book in the news but it’s hard to know what to believe sometimes isn’t it? What do you think of it? Avocado on toast is one of my favourites, I add a drizzle of olive oil plus some salt and pepper – it just tastes so yum.

    It’s a weird world you’ve retired into, but looks like you’re making the best of it. You and your pets too! …. I do t think I even need to mention that you are “preaching to the choir” regarding the lack of leadership our country has (and that’s putting it mildly). It is very hard for a person of my advanced age to accept that we now live in practically a third world country…one the rest of the world is laughing at. To think that people I know still plan to vote for this fool makes me physically ill.

    Glad your getting out. We sure didn’t handle the Covid correctly. If we masked up earlier and other common sense things, our numbers wouldn’t be where there at.

    This post is full of goodies, I really enjoyed it!

    I agree that we should have been told to started wearing masks sooner. But I also see that even though we now have been told where I live that if you go out in public you must wear a mask, and most businesses have signs on the door that says “no mask, no entry”, there are so many people that still aren’t wearing one. Some businesses are making people without masks leave the store but some aren’t. I wish people would take this virus more serious.

    I’m not pitying you too much because of the pool shot…and the beer. I’m not a fan of tell-alls, even if they are about a person everyone loves to hate. Try avocado on bagel with orange marmalade – yum! Our son quit crossfit because there is no way he can do it wearing a mask. I wouldn’t stick my hand down a hole in OK, either! Stay well, Alan.

    Your avocado and tomato bagel looks delicious. Yes, I’m a little skeptical about that book too. I watched an interview with her and she said she hasn’t seen her uncle since 1999, I believe. I think she’s out for a quick buck although I do believe that family is seriously whacked. Now that you’re retired you can make your own squirrel feeders and sell them for $10. At least you’re not sitting around getting fat and becoming a couch potato during retirement. I can’t wait to get back to the gym once I get home.

    I think you are adjusting very well to retirement, all things considered. Love the old moving van, you have an eye for unique photography. I just never caught on to geocaching.
