Hunkering down
Posted by snapdragonxxx on Monday, March 16, 2020 3:36 PM

As the Corona Virus gets a grip here in the UK and as an "at risk" person because of my heart I will be taking precautions which include turning my blood stream into an alcohol stream and sticking my head under the Duvet until about June.

The Foxhole has been dug and sandbagged and my old tin hat pulled out of storage so I can mount one of the large MG's that has been stored just incase some moron decides they want my toilet paper.

If the UK Govt. decides to shut everything down, like Italy has, I have plenty to do.

 

I also have WoT, WoWP and WoWS to keep me occupied too.

   Cool stash!! I hope someone here in the colonies makes a command desicion. My boss says if your sick stay home but they need mechanics, doctors offices and urgent cares are turning people away if the symptoms of WHATEVER you feel are mild. My VA triagued my case today and because my symptoms are mild I can't go to the doctor but they can't tell me how long I should stay home. I work for an international company with offices in Japan...a hot spot,....Seattle Wa.  Another hotspot , and with engineers from all over the world how can I say if I've been exposed.

      55 and independent wealth can't come soon enough.

       My apologies for the "rant" Snapdragonxxx, not trying to hi jack your thread. On the good side if I was able to travel to your country, I would know to call first....lead poisoning is the LAST thing I need. LOL.

Everybody stay calm and plan sensibly.  SnapdragonXXX, make sure you have enough ammo.  Those TP-craving hordes can be persistent.  Remember - lead your targets, controlled bursts.

Seriously though, I thought the crisis would be tapering off by now.  But it seems every day brings more ominous news.  Kinda makes me feel like this:

When the scalpers try to sell them on the black market.

Good grief, and here I thought only Hawaii would experience a relapse of the Great Hawaii Toilet Paper Shortage of 1974. That one was prompted by a Matson shipping strike.

Do people really not realize that a washcloth and warm soapy water works just fine?

I type on a tablet. Please excuse the terseness and the autocorrect. Not to mention the erors.

Talked to a friend. Asked him how home schooling was going for his kids.

Hmm, and so it is. Not sure why I was thinking the former title. Oh well the photo did come up when I typed that in. Thanks for the correction! 

And yes, I have about two-three pairs of glasses around the house and one in the car...
