The pre-spawn Crappie run is on!! Social distancing with integrity.  Chuckle

FISH ON!!!

I think you're allowed to have more than 10 fish on the boat Chuckle

Yes I agree and who cares anymore? Stock the freezer with them. Crappie drudged in buttermilk batter and fried.....make you cry. yum yums. Cane pole with a jig just twitching around a sunken tree, dinner. I miss those times. Crappie, coleslaw, beans, greens, sliced tomatoes and cornbread. Worthy.

Edit, Fried catfish steaks are pretty good too. Can't short change them.

I keep reading that we have plenty of toilet paper in this country, but they didn't have a sheet at this Wal-Mart or any paper towels. If this continues much longer we're going to have toilet paper riots in Fredericksburg before the food riots start.

Well I guess when TSHTF Shitfan people need lot of toilet paper. 1dunno1

I anticipate the most terrible of lawyer jokes to come my way, please & thanks.

I am content, we are prepared as can be, my children are healthy and happy. I am kept awake only by the coyotes in the back hunting and the fear that my acceptance to law school may be a fruitless accomplishment should society never return to normalcy.

I heard the coyotes catch and kill last night for the first time since moving here, the howls of a dying creature off in the distance are new to me, and felt like a frightful omen. But, I saw a shooting star again last night, which felt hopeful.

@Frigg you promised us boat pictures...  daydream

Congratulations and well done you!! Cheer  Cheer  Cheer
When do you start? How long is the course?

I hope you love law school as much as I did. Absolutely lapped it all up!

May I assure you that having a legal training is never fruitless. No matter what comes at us, the way they train you there's always the benefit of having a logical legal mindset to parse all the nonsense and reach a balanced conclusion - on just about everything! We will need more such minds...Then there's the actual legal knowledge which is invaluable in everyday life.
Good luck and have loads of fun!

@Kamchatka and guest thank you both so much! Heartflowers I’m very excited, it’s a 3 year JD program. I’ve taken every law course available to an undergrad economics student (regrettably, only 3). I enjoyed them all. I’m very, very excited (hopeful the virus passes) for September.

I would like mostly to dig into some very legalese-laden documents and unearth some unsavoury truths and put them into terms the public will comprehend. Otherwise, contract or real estate, estate, etc. law are where my interests lie.

I probably will not make much as lawyer, but I think it is education one can use to be in a position to transfer knowledge typically afforded to only the elite to the average citizen.

We shall see, if you ever reg up, message me Guest, I’d love to hear about your experience.

Congrats on getting into law school, @Karl! Heartflowers

You likely know of the Nolo legal guides published for
lay people, maybe you could write for them or other similar
entity if there are any.

Good luck too with your papers!

Well shit. Quarantine casualties....Going to have to go out for take out this evening. A childhood friend of mine inherited the Mexican restaurant his parents' opened over 50 years ago. They are closing down shop after tonight and not expecting to reopen again. It is like losing an old friend. That place is an institution. I love their tacos....tortillas made from scratch every morning. Shells perfectly fried....not too greasy, but juuuust enough......always steaming hot as they fry the shells to order. Anyway.....again, well shit.

I fear for our very, very good locally owned Chinese and Mexican restaurants. I may have to learn more cooking skills.

It's a mystery here in the UK why there simply is no toilet paper. There was a nes report last nigh about toilet roll production. The largest manufacturer told us that they are working all out and sending millions of rolls out per day.
Where is it ll going?

We now know that certain people are being allowed to stockpile. There are no limits for these groups of people (and that doesn't include the elderly and disabled).

Neither is there any online shopping delivery for swathes of the country.

It looks to me like supermarkets have deliberately ceased their deliveries to rural areas and areas they deem 'too far'  from their supermarkets. They make more money out of city deliveries. But, of course, they haven't told we customers any of this.

Umm...

I have a friend and I was joking around asked him if he had terlet roll.

He said, "Luckily my mom stocked up on all those paper goods before she died."

She died Dec. 24, 2018.

People are whack hoarders.

I blame it on the Costco Mentality.

Yesterday the governor basically grounded the state. Fine by me. I was thinking the last time I spent this much time at home was after my youngest was born, over 18 years ago. Obama used to encourage people to take staycations. It is actually quite nice. I have been puttering around, we are getting things done slowly. I have gotten creative in the kitchen because I am trying to make sure we have zero wasted food. So far everything has been a success.

As for work, I am not working. I have never filed for unemployment in my life. Today I watched a webinar on the FFCRA (family first coronavirus relief act). Even the presenters of the webinar were blown away by the depth and speed in which this legislation was drafted and made law. Tomorrow I signed up for another on-line seminar. Looking at what has been put into place for small businesses is very inspiring. I do believe a lot of small businesses can be saved.

Today I decided to clean up my act. I may be home but no sense being lazy. Got up showered and put on some aroma-therapy Stress Less lotion. Dressed like I was going to work or out and I have to say it feels better. I even put on jewelry for the first time in days. It feels normal and I think that is what we need to keep sight of in these different times.
