Here’s my COVID Groundhog Day update. Still at the lake after two months. Our largest expenses have been my wife’s Amazon binges and boat fuel. (Oh yeah-and watch purchases!)Image

I’m sure you will. It’s gotta be hard on the kids but they’ll eventually adapt.

That was you’re problem, it was a bayliner. There’s such a thing as “bayliner mentality”. See it frequently.

Last few days have been interesting. Friday I crashed on the mountain bike. Pretty quick when it happened. Got bucked off the left side. Managed to tuck my arm into my side but landed pretty hard. Doctor thinks I bruised the ribs or muscles surrounding them. Did the whole teledoc thing.

Felt decent enough to bake some bread that evening. Pulled an old bread machine out of the closet.

Didn't feel that sore yesterday surprisingly. Image

So..... What do I do but take a road bike ride. Image Managed 16 miles.

Baked another loaf with some of the everything spice I used last week on the bagels. Image

Well I paid for the lack of rest this morning. No energy and kinda of sore.

Taking tomorrow off from work to heal up a little more and spend some time with family. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Bike wrecks can be hard. I broke 2 then 7 more ribs a month apart a few years back and it sucks. Hope you recover quickly.

Cut out the turf around trees and bushes in the yard then spread 5 yards of mulch. Luckily, I was able to borrow my neighbors little tractor, but that was still a PITA.

Then I took the shrink wrap off the boat and put the canvas back on to get it ready to put back on the slip before the holiday weekend.

Finally, I took the kids out to play 9 holes of golf. We had to walk as my wife worries about renting a cart with this Covid-19 concern.

I think I went over 30,000 steps each day over the weekend. I usually kick out a quick 5 miles in the morning, but I think I’m going to skip it this morning.

Changed the oil on the Tacoma yesterday. It's been a while since I've done my own vehicle (aside from the boat) oil change. Toyota actually makes the process pretty easy on the 2nd gen Tacoma.

Today's project is to get the boat ready to go back onto the slip for the summer.

Beaches are still closed here in NH, so I'm thinking of putting my surfboard on the back of the boat and anchoring about 500 yards off shore. I could surf and still be fully compliant - not on the beach, not parked on the road, socially distant.

It's nice when you have enough ground clearance to do an oil change without having to use ramps or jack stands.

That's a good idea. Will someone stay with the boat?

Yeah, I'm not bored or desperate enough to mess around with jacks and ramps for an oil change. I can get under the truck with my creeper with no issues with it just sitting on its tires.

As to the boat, yes, I would keep someone on it while I surfed. If that thing started to drag its anchor, there is no way I'd be able to catch it paddling on my surfboard.

I'll probably not do it as I am friendly with the police chief in my town. As much as I don't like the beaches being closed and being unable to surf (golfing and hair salons are OK, but the beach isn't?!), I also don't want to be a pain in his ass. He has enough things going on without having to deal with me.

There as "big" issue here with the hair salons... still can't open (probably next week) but hair salons and barber shops are already saying that the will have to increase prices when they open in order to comply with the new "social distancing" rules that the local government is requiring.

I already gave myself a "haircut" with my beard trimmer.... time to invest on a good hair trimmer and get my wife to start watching "how to" videos in YouTube :lol:

More idiotic arbitrary rules from power drunk asshole Governors as far as I'm concerned.

I've been buzzing mine with a Wahl trimmer that I bought at BJ's a while ago. I use the number 2 comb, and it looks like number 2. That's not Wahl's fault. :lol:
