Mornin'. 34°f and dark so far. Heading to the Golden Arches for hotcakes and sausage. I hear only the drive-up will be open. I'll check it out. :?:

The drive-up is open, but they said the dining area will be closed starting tomorrow.

Hi. Yes, same thing here. Jason said they closed his Jimmy John's at 5 pm tonight. Beginning tomorrow it's only drive-through and he can still deliver (which I think should ramp up pretty well). I got an update today that I will be teleworking at least until April 3. A lady was in our building last week that has since been diagnosed. I had a solid day of back to back meetings on the computer today so we kept getting stuff done for our fellow Americans. bp

Mornin'. 30°f and sunny, heading into the 50's they say. Good opportunity to paint the lawn tractor fender if I have enough time to get it prepped today. The rest of the week looks to be wet.

They're making progress downtown with sidewalks and lights.

Got signs done a little early today, so I worked on the mower a couple hours. I finally found a place for the Ron Jon decal we bought in Florida a couple years ago. :lol:

Mornin'. 41°f With rain for today, started overnight, so no sign installation. I have one quote to do that will take all of 10-15 min. Then it looks like I may pull the engine out of the mower and replace the leaky sump gasket and main seal. Not much activity, with most things on lockdown. Cheryl still has PT so far. No virus cases in our County but there was a report in the next county north of us.
They are still working on the construction project downtown. Might go get a few pics. later, but rain might slow their progress too.

Man, Gary. You are a man of action! Always doing something. Still working from home. Going to be 78 tomorrow. I'll have to get outside at some point. I don't have to commute so that is getting me three hours a day back into my life. Sleeping an extra hour and working out every morning. bp

It's a chance to get some stuff done that never seems to get off the back burner. :wink:

Mornin;. 44°f with a big green blob heading our way on the radar. I hope to get the mower fender painted today. Got to do it outside so we don't get a red haze on everything in the shop. I have 2x4's screwed to the bottom so it sets level. My plan is to get it a coat or 2, then bring it inside to dry. Repeat as necessary between rain showers until it has enough coverage. I'm off to see if I can scare up any paper towels for the shop.

Got it. Neighbor Wayne has a three-month-old grandson, which is great. But he said that doesn't leave any time to do lawns other than his. He's been taking care of us for a few years. I'll have to get off my lazy butt, get a mower, and do it myself. Or... find another service provider. I could do it now, while we are all working from home, but probably would not be able to get to it once I start working downtown again. bp

We got our first local reported case of the virus this afternoon. So, I'll probably have plenty of time to get the mower refurbished. :oops: Not going out much these days. Skies cleared off just before sunset today, just enough time to shoot 4 coats of rattle can Rustoleum Red on the fender. Got the decals printed today, so I hope to get them laminated and installed tomorrow, if the paint dries enough. Warm tomorrow, then it gets cold for Saturday, below freezing.

I visited with neighbor Wayne tonight but we kept about a 3-4 foot distance while gossiping about the neighborhood! Then I enjoyed a glass of grape juice while enjoying the spring weather. bp
