Work from Home

Social Distancing

Let me be perfectly clear, to whomever came up with that now overly used term you deserve a punch in the throat.

So I have had a bunch of people reach out to me asking how things are going here in New York. I don’t really watch the news on TV so I am not really sure what they are reporting. I went to Target on Saturday everyone was acting civil. There was food on the shelves, but the TP aisle was as expected, empty. I was picking up some Tide Pods and a ream of paper expecting to be stuck at home.

Later that afternoon we went to meet up with Lady Barrister and Mr 3 First Names at The Commissioner. I was happy to report that the bar was behaving correctly and people were keeping their distance from each other per the rules. Also anytime a table left the staff was spraying the table down with Lysol and cleaned the seats. It was great getting out and having some drinks and a much needed distraction.

Yesterday we were more or less staying in and working from home as the majority of my accounts heeded the warning. It was also announced that restaurants were to either close or allow take out only. This is going to really hurt some businesses. I get that we need to disrupt the spread and ‘flatten the curve’ but it is going to be interesting to say the least.

We are fine by the way, the dog is loving having mom and dad home but its everyone else that puts me on edge and makes me nervous. I am afraid that some business won’t make it. The profit margin of running a restaurant isn’t that great. I fear that we are going to lose some great institutions.

Restaurants are required to be 50% occupied and keep your distance but that has now changed.
Going to be strange with nobody out for St Patrick’s Day but it’s expected.
Had a couple of these the other day to ease the pain
Ate Mexican with Laterza on Saturday.
I have a feeling I am going to be watching some of these

We haven’t sent the “Can you spare a square” email yet.

Be Nice to Each Other and if you can support your fellow man/woman.

Random Pictures on The Phone

Been busy for us during Christmas Season here in the big city. With the holidays rapidly approaching we have been busy getting gifts and naturally sending them to Memphis wrapped. Note to self – when sending a box to your mothers house and she has moved it may be a good idea to get the correct address. Thankfully FedEx was able to correct the address and the customer service agent didn’t laugh at me too bad. 

This week we are busy with Holiday parties (Mary Louise’s old work peeps) and we have some other events to attend this weekend. Mary Louise heads back to Seattle on Tuesday so it will be just me and the dog for the week. I will keep you posted. Anyway here are some pictures that I have had for the past couple of weeks. 

Broke Out the 3 Piece Suit the other day since it was Ball Shrinking Cold

The Nephew was trying to get a little too Cute with Uncle CBT and Aunt Mary Louise on his Christmas List

Caught the Griz Nets Game a couple weeks back with Vivian and Stone

Forgot about this one. Has it really been 7 years Muppet? Now look at you! See you and Tink (who is celebrating her birthday today 12.12)  next fall! 

Mr. 3 First Names and Asian Fireman tell me this is a Hazmat/Rescue/Engine that T.O.D.D. used to work on. 

Maya likes it when Mary Louise works from Home. 

Sent this to St. Aloysius the other day on his birthday. 

I will have something better I promise.
